Letter from Sara Wade Ratcliff, 1930 Graduate

  Here is all I have on Cousin Sara.  An excellent source was her niece Joan.  Joan is a Minden grad of late 'AD's s. You probably remember her sister Jane who graduated with me in 1953                     deceased     Mrs. Joan (James) Reeves Booth          Houston, Texas

VALEDICTORIAN - Miss Alline BarkerSALUTATORY - Harry McGinnis President:  Harry McInnis There were 75 members of the graduating class


Submitted by daughter of Alline Barker   


SUBMITTED BY DAUGHTER OF ALLINE BARKER  I have a picture that I will send when I send the other information.  She's young in the picture but don't know her exact age.  Yes, she was born in 1912 which puts her at age 18 when she graduated.  Another question I have - weren't there just 11 grades back then?  Wish I could confirm that.  As to college, I know she went at least one year and maybe two at Monticello, Arkansas.  She then taught school a couple of years and married in 1935.  I think if you attended college at all back then, you could teach, in rural Arkansas, anyway.  She was also musically inclined - played the piano by ear and had a beautiful alto voice.  She collected poetry and I have an old notebook of hers in which she had copied favorite (I assume) poems.  I didn't know about the poetry when I was growing up.  Thank you for being interested in all this. Krim Byard, Daughter or Alline Barker,
