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.

New Library at Old Central

I can’t help it. It might be a junior high school today, but it’s still Central High School to me. I wondered what they were adding to MY school this summer. By the time I was getting ready to leave, it had taken shape enough to figure out that it was going to be a new library.

    Nothing can improve if it doesn’t change. Hopefuly the people making the decisions about such things are wise and thinking of our best interests. The Schultz School was my Jr High and my grade school, Washington, is now gone and Cape is probably a better place now than it was just a short time ago.

    How can the residents of Cape afford all this new construction? Oh, maybe it’s the new casino.
