1922 Cranford yearbook reveals fun details of school’s past

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Have you ever wondered what your school’s oldest yearbooks look like? Or what fun secrets they might reveal about your old school?

Columnist Cat Galioto from the Cranford Patch newspaper in New Jersey recently did that, going to the local Cranford Library archives and flipping through a Cranford High School yearbook from 1922.

Naturally, many of the school’s activities, traditions and yearbook features popular in 1922 are inevitably (and hilariously) no longer around, such as the “Class Rigamorale.”

Have you gone back to take a look at any of your school’s old yearbooks? If so, what did you find?
