The Mayflower was located somewhere in the Willow Ave, Cherokee Park area. He graduated from Male High School in May of 1934 and kept this book during his junior year. He was in the Male HS ROTC and there are a number of interesting photos of him in his uniform. He was quite a social butterfly because there are a number of dance invitations from various girls.
