"I have been in contact with Kev Varney about Catholic League football and still am looking for information, pictures
and background on MILLS STADIUM
(formerly a gridiron site for Catholic League games during the 1920's &

might be able to add updates. Any info could be forwarded to Ted of Chicago at his e-mail address: email@example.com

CHICAGO HARRISON HIGH SCHOOL
"I was a graduate of Harrison (June 1960) and I lost my school yearbook. I am seeking information on how to obtain the
yearbook for 1960. some of the graphics were done by Stanley Edwards who became a famous artist, and he was
a great friend of mine. he school was integrating I am black, and Stanley was white, I played in a jazz band during
the time and Stanley and I hung out after school on weekends on the gold coast. We were considered "Beatniks" and because
of the racial turmoil at the time, our black/white relationships were special. The yearbook reflects this and I would
be a very happy man if I could find a copy. I do not know the name of the photo company that took printed the book.
Could you please help me.

From Bert Fulk:
My name is Bert Fulk
and I am the great-grandson of Bert Dancey
. I was wondering
if you had any pictures of Bert
from his high school days. My grandmother would absolutely love to have
some photos or copies of the same. He attended Forrest Township High School
and graduated in either 1923 or 1924."
From Doug Smith:
Recently I found copies of the 1957 and 1958 Fairview Valley Senior High School
yearbooks, and I just wondered if you knew whether or not there were any famous or interesting students pictured
in either book? Any outstanding athletes, businessmen, politicians etc? The books originally belonged to student Jane
who went on to graduate from Illinois State Normal University in 1962, and I assume became a teacher somewhere."
From Brian Carusella:
"This is a long shot, but if anyone knows the answer I am confident it is you! I am researching radios
built by troops during the World Wars, and have run across a set at the Army Communications Museum at Fort Monmouth.
It was built by a Lieut. George B. Ferree of Urbana. The little that I
have been able to uncover about Lieut. Ferree indicates that he may possibly have
been Coach George Ferree of Chenoa High School fame. First World War records are sketchy at best, so I haven't been able to confirm it yet. Do you happen to know
of any biographical information about Coach Ferree? Any information would likely provide a good lead and
would be most appreciated."
