(click photo to enlarge)

  • Members of the Class of 1948 pose on a car. Fun fact: This was the class with whom former New York Yankees principal owner and Bay resident, George Steinbrenner, was due to graduate, had he stayed in Bay Village for high school. He is listed as having attended at least one class reunion which may speak to the affinity he had for this class.

  • Class of 1934

  • Class officers and graduates of 1948 in their caps and gowns.

  • Don Friend's diploma from 1948. The high school was now known officially as Bay High School.

  • This dance card, with a palm tree on its cover, is from the Junior-Senior Prom of 1955. "Dave" seems to be the lucky dance partner penciled in the most for that evening.

  • Vera Wuebker, pictured center, was a member of the first graduating class in Bay Village in 1927. The high school, then at the corner of Wolf and Cahoon Roads, was known as Parkview High School. Before the Class of 1927, Bay high school students had to attend schools in neighboring towns.
