Security guard history buff discovers 1924 yearbook

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Here’s a fun story that Houston TV station Fox-26 did this week on security guard and history buff Thomas Howard.

Howard is currently a security guard at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, but several years ago while working on a job at an apartment building demolition site, he stumbled across some valuable collectibles. Among them was a 1924 yearbook from Houston Central High School.

Howard determined the mementos belonged to then 18-year-old Guinevere Oatley, and he’s been looking for her family since.
