Discovered yearbook helps community remember popular music teacher
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
Here’s an interesting article from the Fort Madison Daily Democrat in Iowa. A 1912 Lawrence College yearbook was recently discovered at a senior living facility in Fort Madison.
The yearbook belonged to Carl Nelson, one of the area’s more historical figures for the more than 30 years that he taught music and marching band in the Fort Madison public school system.
Nelson’s old yearbook has given the community a chance to fondly remember and honor the former educator. Now, those at the Kensington home where the yearbook was found are trying to track down Nelson’s family to rightfully give them the book.
