Mystery Photo: First Grade at Hillside, 1965

Here is one of our most recent acquisitions, a fabulous photograph loaned to us for copying by Katy Artel Pietrogallo. It shows the bright and shining faces of Margie Kunze's first grade class at Hillside School in 1965 (described on the letter board as "Year 1"). The girls in the middle row show off their favorite books, including Green Eggs and Ham and Gertie the Duck. Katy's brother, Alexis, is in the back row, fourth from the right. Do you recognize any of the other kids? Click on the photograph to look at it in Flickr (use the All Sizes link to enlarge the photograph). If you have any ideas, let us know!

If you don’t know, but are curious about the answers, come back to the blog and check this post. We’ll attach comments with any information we receive.

  1. Polly Mitzman gave us this information via our Flickr photostream:

    "This was my first grade class. I remember a few faces.

    Top row: first from left is Robert Paquette; second from left is Jeff Edelman; fourth from left is Salvatore Columbo; fifth from right is Steven Korwatch; fourth from right is Alexis Artel.

    Middle row: First from left is Carrie Middleton; third from left is Polly Mitzman (myself); fourth from left is Allen Brazee; fourth from right is Sabina Levinson; third from right is Cindy Localio; second from right is Cary Dollard; first right is Jana Hanovich;

    First row: second from left is Lynn Osbourne; Lisa Fell is holding the plaque; second from right is Jeanette Fedor.

    I remember a few of the other children, but can only recall the first names. Top row second from right is Danny; third from right is David. Middle row second from left is Rosemary (or Rosemarie)."

    Thanks, Polly! Can anyone help her out with some of these names?

  2. One of our Flickr buddies adds that the second girl from the left in the second row is Maryann Korotas.
