Treasure Chest Thursday – 1930s West Virginia Yearbooks

While digging through my grandmother’s closet yesterday, I came across a plastic tote containing what we believed to be my uncle’s yearbooks. Upon closer¬†examination, however, I discovered that it also contained my grandfather’s yearbooks from Charleston, West Virginia. I am now the proud owner of the 1931 Charlestonian, the 1939 Charlestonian, and the 1936 Lincoln Junior High “Searchlight.”

My grandfather, Fred S Greybill, Jr, graduated high school in 1939. He graduated junior high in 1936. But the 1931 Charlestonian is a mystery to me. I’m not sure who it belonged to, as my grandfather was the oldest of all his siblings. He would have been 10 in 1931, so it’s definitely not his. I haven’t had a chance to go through the whole book yet (it’s in pretty bad shape, and three pieces), but hopefully I’ll find an answer as to why he had it.

Anyway, it looks like I’ve got some fun stuff took look through. And if you want me to check for any names, just let me know.
