1942 Rare Ww2 Roosevelt High School Students Hs Yearbook Signed Hawaii For Sale

1942 Rare Ww2 Roosevelt High School Students Hs Yearbook Signed Hawaii

WELCOME!

Offered in this sale, is a different sort of World War 2 collectible -- a Senior High School student's own personal yearbook/annual, one of many, whose senior year was disrupted by the bombing of PEARL HARBOR, not very far away.

"THE ROUND-UP" (1942) belonged to a senior boy named ANDREW RAMOS, a track runner and school jazz musician.

There are many, many signatures and inscriptions in this yearbook, both from students and teachers. There are many references to "THE SEVENTH" throughout, and in reading it, one can truly sense how this war affected the young people who were in high school at that time, especially when the first bombs hit so close to home!

School dances, activities, plays and proms, all were cancelled after the bombing. College plans were put on hold as students prepared instead, to enter some form of military or charitable organizations. Teachers were called into active service.

This yearbook, and other activities that year, almost didn't happen: there is an inscription(inside of back cover) explaining that. After the war started, there was NO paper to print an annual, NO ink, NO glue! Through some clever ingenuity, the hard-cover yearbooks were made with scrapboard and some cloth meant for girl's dresses!!

This book is in wonderful, vintage condition. NO water stains, ripped or missing pages, NO dog ears. Cover has had a sheer paper cover protecting it through the years, which is now tattered and ripped, and coming off. I am including it, as it in itself, is unique and collectible. Not sure if it is wall-paper or gift paper. Has "HAWAII" printed all over.

I do not know how ANDREW RAMOS came to be separated from his senior class yearbook. If anyone out there knows what became of him, PLEASE email through and let me know. He must be close to being 89 yrs. old by now.

WINNER WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!! This is a VERY unique and wonderful treasure --- especially for teachers of History. This would make a great item to share in the classroom.

Thanks for reading this, and for your offer!
