A few weeks back we published this picture and asked if anyone knew who was in it. Reader Bernice Rose Dangelas knew the class (she was a member) and submitted the following information:

The school year was 1955-1956 and the picture is of Mrs. Gertrude Ball’s Class, which included grades one, two, and three.

The students are:

Back row, from left: Cara Lee, Barbara Northup, Susan Fairbanks, Patricia Slate, Cheryl Rice, Judith Gillepsie.

Middle row, from left: Della Slate, Bernice Rose, Jean Gillespie, Nancy Lewis, Diane Tripler, Nancy Dodge.

Front row, from left: John Hill, John Swienton, Frederick Pike, Albert Smith, Edward Conley, Robert Rose, and James Mitchell.

Ed. note: A brief biography of the photographer: Robert Yarnall Richie (1908-1984) was a noted freelance American photographer who worked all over the world, most specifically in the petroleum and aviation industries. His photographs were published in Fortune, Life, Time, and Scientific American magazines. The Robert Yarnall Richie Collection is held at Southern Methodist University.
