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.


City Manager Paul Frederick

An estimated 400 Cape residents met the city’s first city manager and his family at a reception Feb. 10, 1966. In this photo, which ran on the front page of The Missourian, the caption read (paraphrased), City Manager Paul Frederick greets Mrs. Arthur W. Thilenius, while the Fredericks’ son, Jon, Mrs. Frederick and the Fredericks’ younger daughter, Mary look on. The Fredericks’ older daughter, Pauline, is attending college in North Dakota and was unable to attend the reception. Mayor Charles Hood is at right.

(Sorry, Jon, for getting you with your eyes closed. Following in Frony’s footsteps, I only shot three frames at the event and you were cropped out of the other two.)

The Frederick family came from Minot, N.D.  He served until 1970, when he resigned and was replaced by W.G. Lawley of Camden, Ark.
