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.

Delta High School Basketball

Delta High School basketball at Houck Field HouseThese photos show Delta High School playing a team with uniforms that don’t have a school name on them. The assumption must have been that if you bothered to show up for the game that you’d know who was playing. A cheerleader’s sweater in one of the frames has a big “N” on it surrounded by what might be a “D,” which would probably make it Notre Dame.

Beyond that, you are on your own.

    That was definitely Notre Dame. I recognize Jill Smith 1965 graduate. One of the pictures has Tom Poston he was class of 1966. I think one might be Bob Capshaw but not sure about Bob.

  • Here is a mystery basketball game shot by Frony at Houck Field House.

    Husband Don says that it was probably the 1965 Christmas tournament at Houck. He says 13 is Larry Poston (not Tom, the elder), 35 is Steve Robert or possibly Paul Seesing, and 45 is Paul Compas. Don said overall the junior class of players (1966) had the better players. (Bob Capshaw is mentioned above. He was married to Kate Capshaw before she became Mrs. Steven Spielberg. Their Capshaw daughter is also an actress, I think.)

    Definitely Cape Girardeau Notre Dame High School which my husband attended. We went to some of these games.

    yes this was likely at the College High Christmas tournament. it was sponsored by college high every year during the Christmas break. I went to College High. The PEP club printed and sold programs at the tournament, so I was there every night, and often the field house was packed.
