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.

Congratulations Larry Schirmann

For once I know who is in this 1966 grip ‘n’ grin photo: Larry Schirmann. What I don’t know is when it was taken, who the guy on the left is, where it was taken and what we’re congratulating Larry for.

Larry took 1st place over other university speakers

An enlargement of the sign says that Larry was “our representative” and that he “Won 1st prize in stiff competion with speakers from Missouri Univ. (Columbia); Missouri Univ. (St. Louis); Washington Univ; St. Louis Univ.; Southern Illinois Univ. and Westminster College (Fulton).”

Third Floor Academic Hall?

A slightly wider angle might provide some clues. They’re standing in front of Room 315. We’re informed that it’s the Department of …. but it doesn’t say which department. The high ceilings and dark wood framing makes me think it might have been in Academic Hall, particularly with all of the university references.

Anyway, congratulations, Larry. You look like a guy with a firm handshake.
