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.

Academic Hall Dome

I stopped by Kent Library to see the folks in Special Collections, but it happened to be Friday when they sneak out (unlike the poor woman who was chained to her station at the reference desk). Brother Mark had photographed some of the Academic Hall construction in May, but he didn’t get to see the shiny new copper being applied to the dome. Here are his shots and some comparison shots over the years.

Photo gallery of Academic Hall

You can read Erin Ragan’s story about the renovation in The Missourian. That’ll give me time to pack up my stuff to head back to Florida. (Or, I may have already packed up and be half-way home. I’m not sure in what order I’m going to run some of these stories I’m putting in the can.) [Tuesday night finds me in Newport, TN.]

Click on any photo to make it larger, then click on the left or right side of the image to move through the gallery. I sort of like the shot with the fountain in the foreground. It’s not a view I’ve seen many times.
