Class - 1942 (Naturalization)
Here is the picture of my grandmother's naturalization class. (My grandmother is in the back row to the left off the tall man.) Her married named then was Hanna Beck. It may have been taken around 1942.
If someone recognizes where it was taken it might help somehow to find her citizenship papers.

According to my mother the woman in the second row, fifth from the right, is Mrs. Louto (sp ?) who they used to get milk from in Allouze.

Class (unknown school) Superior
This is the class photograph that I do not know the name of the school. But it was in Superior, WI. I know that much. My father is the last boy on the right, in the front row. I think that the signed name in the lower right hand corner says "Drysdale Perry", but I don't know who that person is. Possibly the photographer, or someone from the school. It had to have been a middle school or whatever school preceded high school in 1928...because my father began high school at Central High School in Sept 1928 and he graduated in 1931.
