Its that time of year, graduation in Story City is almost here. This photo is one of the oldest Story City High School graduation photos we have in our collection. This is Bertha (Olson) Bartlett's high school graduation photo. Bertha was the librarian in Story City from 1927 until 1964.
Bertha often told her daughter, Frances Bartlett Kinne, that the class was upset when a man joined the class in the 12th grade.
