Edward R. Murrow High School (1600 Avenue L) will celebrate 40 years in the community this Saturday, when more than 700 former students and their families will return to the school grounds. While digging through the school's archives in preparation for this weekend's anniversary event (which is open to the public; more on that at the end of this post), organizers dug up the yearbook photos of some of their most famous alumni and passed them on to Sheepshead Bites.
One middle school class photo is getting a lot of attention -- because of what it doesn't include. Yet when the teen -- sitting in the front row of assembled students -- saw a copy of the photo last week, she was floored to find that "feminist" had been digitally removed. The student said that the administrator declared, 'It was mine and the photographer's decision to photoshop your shirt because some people might find it offensive.'"
1. This English teacher, who believes poetry is all around us. 2. This gym teacher, who doesn't tolerate horsing around. 3. This teacher, who maybe shouldn't get lunch duty anymore. 4. This history teacher, who takes his job very seriously. 12. This gym teacher who leads a rich home life, apparently. 15.
Everybody has at least one yearbook photo tucked away in a closet somewhere that rarely sees the light of day. It's quite comforting to see that some of the most beautiful and talented people on the planet were once just average kids trying to make it through to adulthood. Click through this slideshow quiz and see if you can guess who the famous face is, based on their yearbook photo.
An Iowa newspaper is accused of pro-white bias after it handled the same alleged crime between two different sets of suspects in radically different ways. BoingBoing's Caroline Siede wrote , "As Rafi points out, regardless of what photos were available of the black suspects, the white suspects definitely had mugshots taken. In trying to justify the discrepancy, The Gazette explained they must make a formal request in order to get mugshots, yet they were clearly willing to take that extra step when it came to the black suspects."
Imagine committing the same exact crime as six other people only to have your mugshot ran instead of your yearbook photo because of your skin color. BoingBoing's Caroline Siede responded perfectly to the Gazette's move by writing, "As Rafi points out, regardless of what photos were available of the black suspects, the white suspects definitely had mugshots taken. In trying to justify the discrepancy, The Gazette explained they must make formal request in order to get mugshots, yet they were clearly willing the take that extra step when it came to the black suspects."
a black-and-white yearbook photo from the 1964 junior class of Marquette University High School. The El Conquistador Latino newspaper in Milwaukee is also helping the students locate the photos of the service members of Hispanic descent. Up there, in the top row, in the same class, in the same photo, sat - my father.
When I think of young Steve Jobs, I typically picture the long-haired hippie who worked at Atari or the brilliant-but-immature co-founder who started Apple with Steve Wozniak. The photo comes from the Homestead High yearbook from 1969, when Jobs was 14, and is far less well-known than the high school senior picture with which I'm already familiar.
The post has gone viral, generating more than 60,000 likes and 3,500 comments from excited fans. Though the majority of the photos have been circulating on the Internet for years, seeing so many of them grouped together like a page from a high school yearbook makes for especially fun viewing. "Eminem looks like Frodo from lord of the rings," Zulfeqarkapasi joked.
Lance and Jair, who attend McKinleyville Middle School in California, US, posed for the photo for their yearbook and were voted by their fellow students as the cutest couple in the school. Any homophobia on behalf of the school has been dismissed, as parents of the school say the issue was more about the fact that the students did not have permission to post the photo to social media.
In an effort to include those remaining, the staff is now issuing a last call for RSO and Greek yearbook photos.

With the volunteers all gathered in one spot, a quick yearbook photo was snapped on the Brigade's lawns before proceedings moved inside for the business end of things. As the ceremony dissolved into the nitty gritty of the AGM, the Prime Minister slipped out for a swift costume change. Suit and blue tie back on, and his firies uniform stashed away in the boot of the prime ministerial Comcar C1, he zipped away to the call of his paid job.
