100 Year Old Sweater May 19 2011

Fascinating pieces of school history destined for the Archives often walk in the front door. This amazing sweater was a recent donation, found in the attic of a long graduated alum. Two pictures accompanied it - one of a class in front of the little Red Schoolhouse from 1919 and one of the football team from 1918. The young man holding the football in the photo was wearing this sweater. The sweater looks to be hand knit with a homemade D on the front and is free of moth incursions.
