' Qjfrr X, gjfff ,L ' .1 b- ,v This annual seeks to commemorate an event. An event which makes a superlative addition to the structure of education that has given Antigo a noteworthy position in the annals of state teaching. An event which widens our grasp of the complex modern world and enlarges the opportunity of our educators to service well and adequately all the needs of our citizenry. It is to the spirit of educational and civic progress that we dedicate this book and it is the continuance and power of this spirit throughout A'itigo's history in giving the city progressively better and Mrgcr systems that this book in part seeks to portray. It is meant to be an attestation ofthe educational riches of our city, and a passing thanksgiving to those who have made us rich. May their spirit survive in us that we as citizens of our community may finish and augment their work. Our people recognize the power of knowledge and foster schools."-1880. Page Two

The schoolhouse was a log cabin that the builder had intended to use for a private residence. Miss Anna Sheriff, the first teacher, had six pupils during that first term. By 1882 a new school building was under construction but was not to be ready for several months. Until the completion of this building, a second floor room in the Ben Spencer hotel was used. The at- tendance had grown and this room was provided with fifty seats for the pupils expected: however, many more pupils came than had been provided for. In fact, before December of that year, one hundred pupils were enrolled. A young graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Byron Oakley, came to Antigo in 1882, looking for a place to open a law office. Instead, he became principal of the school, and when the new building was ready for use, Mr. Oakley graded the school. The new building, which was located where the public library now stands. was a "modem" frame structure of that time. It consisted of four rooms, on two doors, and basement equipment with a furnace. The enrollment continued to grow and before the end of the year seventy-three students were in one of the rooms and the others were also overcrowded, Mr. C. O. Marsh, also a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, was the next principal and super- intendent of schools. In September, 1883, when Mr. Marsh came, the high school department was added with a registration of forty-one students. A new wooden building was erected in the second The Junior-Senior high school system was established in 1929. Page Four
