Cape Central High Photos

Ken Steinhoff, Cape Girardeau Central High School Class of 1965, was a photographer for The Tiger and The Girardot, and was on the staff of The Capaha Arrow and The Sagamore at Southeast Missouri State University. He worked as a photographer / reporter (among other things) at The Jackson Pioneer and The Southeast Missourian.

Come here to see photos and read stories (mostly true) about coming of age in Southeast Missouri in the 1960s.

Please comment on the articles when you see I have left out a bit of history, forgotten a name or when your memory of a circumstance conflicts with mine. (My mother says her stories have improved now that more and more of the folks who could contradict her have died off.) Your information helps to make this a wonderful archive and may end up in book form.

Capaha Park Reunion

Decendents of Nettie Hopper reunion 07-04-2013It may look strange that I pick this time of year to run photos of people frolicking in Capaha Park, but I’m editing a commemorative booklet on the Nettie Hopper Spicer Family Reunion that took place over the Fourth of July holiday in 2014.

The folks going through strange contortions are playing catch with water-filled balloons. They include Latisha McCray, Hannah Sterling, Diane Taylor, Sean Mason, Alyssa Nunley, Haley Conner, Jennette Haley Jenkins, Pat Young and Zipporah Jenkins.
