I’ve been trying to keep a good mix of posts coming so that it’s not 100% knitting all the time, but also because the most recent genealogical scanning project has a bunch of gems that should probably be put somewhere on the internet in case someone might be searching for this stuff. This one is probably a little obscure since Reade Township is a tiny township in Cambria County, Pennsylvania. The program for the 1942 Reade Township commencement wasn’t for grandma’s graduation, but that of her cousin, Nellie Gasparri which is probably why she tucked it into her scrapbook. It has a red construction paper cover and is hand tied with a red ribbon. The program date is Tuesday, June 16, 1942 at 8 o’clock and was conducted at the Reade Township High School in Mountaindale, Pennsylvania (now the “Mountaindale Conference Center”). For a history of the school, the Cambria County page at CamGenPA has a good write up as well as a listing of graduates. A list of the graduates in this program is typed out here for search engine indexing purposes, and the images from the program are below. Click any image to link to the full size scan.
