                           Richard Glover's mosaic of his second grade Classmates.
                             Webmaster's note: This mosaic was longer than the
                             scanner we used so it had to be scanned twice; left
                             half and right half. Many thanks to MamaPat for
                             merging the halves to perfection.

                              This picture was taken at Rankin Hall on February 13, and
                              published in the Morganton News Harold the next day on
                              Valentine's Day 1958. John Berry Hamrick, Jr. is sitting third
                              from the left. Louise Isenhour Luther is on the far right, also
                              on the first row. Lee McDaniel says Ann Scarboro is between
                              Louise and him. Can you identify the remaining pupils?

                              The following 5 photos of the Rankin Hall Kids
are from the
                              Lewis Suggs Photography Archives, courtesy of Trudy Suggs.

  The boys of Rankin Hall were on an outing to Moose Lodge on Mother's Day for dinner. No date
  available; seems to be circa 1959. First row: L-R: First is Haywood
  Holmes,  Roger Jones, Gary Hunnings, and Buster Bowman. Second row:
  Marion Parrish, Danny Broadaux, Lewis Suggs and Richard Glover. Third
  row: Wayne Herron,Steve Lancaster, Ray Carver, Jimmy Gibbs, unknown,
  and Donnie McLamb. Thanks to Marion Parris
('69) for completing the
  identifying of the previously "unknowns" in this photo.

                 This picture of Lewis Suggs and Richard Glover, dated April '59.

  Lewis, Donnie McLamb and James Melvin Murray. Thanks to Marion Parris
identifying James in this photo.

                    Activities were often held for the kids at night. This seems to be a dress-up game of
                    some sort. Lewis is shown here dressed as either a girl or a
                    cowboy? Marion Parris has identified the following students;
                    On the chairs, front to back: Marion Parris, Kenneth Lowe,
                    unknown, and Steve Lancaster. Of the 3 kids sitting in the
                    back, first is unknown, Wayne Herron, and Annie Grace
                    Greene. The 2 kids standing in the back are unknowns.

  Another photo from the dorm's activity. Lewis, in the plaid shirt, is sitting
  between the two boys, Donnie McLamb and Buster Bowman.

These two pictures were taken by Richard's father but Richard doesn't remember if this was on a
Friday before going home or on a Sunday coming back to school. There are no dates indicated on
these pictures. The ages of these handsome youngsters seems to indicate that they are still in
Rankin Hall. The supervisor in these pictures is unknown.
 Tony Moore, Richard Glover, Jimmy Miller, Danny Bordeaux, Melvin Murray,
  and Lewis Suggs.

         Richard's sister in car, Melvin Murray, Danny Bordeaux,
                                    Richard Glover, Lewis Suggs, and Tony Moore.
