Blanche Southcombe March '29

Jeanette asked about her dates, Blanche was an important part of alumni association for years. Blanche is one of those folks who did both high school and Normal school here, graduating from the high school department in 1926, then the Normal "intermediate" (for those planning to teach junior high,) in 1929. As an aside, Brockport and the other normals did not prepare high school teachers, it was either elementary or junior high, high school teachers trained at a teachers college like Albany, or one of the private colleges.

Update: I posted a pic of Blanche from her '26 graduation in "Remembering Brockport" on Facebook and a few minutes later her gr-grand daughter commented!
