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.

Women’s Field Hockey

SEMO women students playing field hockey c 1966These women students at Southeast Missouri State College seem to be taking their field hockey seriously (although there seems to be some informal chatting going on between competitors in a couple of the frames). These were probably taken in 1966ish.

    I used to watch these girls play in the mornings while walking between classes…way too early. They played behind Parker Hall in the old valley that sloped toward the towers dorms to the east. Mostly St. Louis chicks that played and real jockettes at the time. Other than swimmers you really did do see women playing sports too much in those days.

    I recognize some of the players as my Alpha Xi Delta sorority sisiters. I suspect this was taken in the fall of 1965.
