At the Alumni Reunion on February 10, the 97th anniversary of the founding of the school was celebrated by reviving our cus- tom of awarding 50th anniversary diplomas to those who graduated 50 years ago. This proved to be very popular. About twenty old grads came to the reunion to receive their diplomas in person and over thirty others asked to have them delivered by mail. Another feature of the reunion was an exhibit of pictures of Central High classes and activities fifty years ago. Many of these pictures were prepared for exhibit at the W0rld's Fair of 1904, and a few of the most interesting are reprinted here. Two members of the Central faculty of fifty years ago were platform guests. They were Mr. Walter A. Godbey, mathematics instructor, and Mr. Louis Kittlaus, Sr., gym teacher. Another math teacher of fifty years ago is a resident of the Bernard Nursing Home, 4385 Maryland Avenue. She is Miss Annie L. Matthews.
