Throwback Thursday – Book Brigade

Throwback Thursday

Summer of 1973

Book Brigade

 

In the summer of 1973, Albion was preparing for the move into a brand new high school. The class of 1974 was preparing to mark history by being the very first graduating class from that new high school. Students from all grade levels gathered to form a “Book Brigade” to transfer books from the old high school (currently the middle school) to the new high school (current high school). One by one, the books were passed from student to student lined up between the libraries in each school. Following are two local newspaper clippings (I assume from the Albion Advertiser) of this historical event.
