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.

Picture This

2015 CHS Reunion 08-01-2015I was going to write something profound about the 2015 reunion, but I need to let my thoughts simmer for awhile.

Maybe it’s my family’s brush with mortality lately; maybe it’s looking at that looping series of photos of our classmates who have graduated to the next level; maybe it’s just that the doggone stairs in the Arena building seem steeper than they used to. So, rather than post the rather melancholy thoughts that are floating around in my head right now, let’s just go straight to some happy pictures of the celebration we had.

Click on any picture to make it larger, then use your arrow keys to move through the gallery. There are a lot of images of the photographer herding cats to set up the group shots. I’ll add that job to the list of career opportunities to avoid.

    Great pix as ever, Ken. Thank you!


    Dear Ken,
    Wow…. those pictures are excellent… in quality and composition! as is your standard professional fare. However, need I point out the OBVIOUS.. that your “envious & resentful” tendencies are showing again. What OTHER EXPLANATION could there be for taking that many pictures WITHOUT INCLUDING: MagnumPU Terry Hopkins, Daring & Dashing Dickie McClard, or your’s truly – Brune Time Brad??? You couldn’t have missed the three of us because there were small crowds of admirers surrounding each of us everywhere we went during the reunion. So we must come to the sad conclusion – that just because we are not men of “letters’, university professors, museum curators, or fellow photography aficionados – you don’t consider us “worthy” of your few remaining kodachrome rolls of film! You can behave like a very “small man” Dr. Ken Steinfeld. (in all ways other than your physical stature – of course).
    Brune Time Opinion.

    • Mr. Brune, Sir, I can only offer the defense the highway patrolman gave to a motorist who complained that he was the only one of a bunch of cars that was pulled over for speeding: “If I shoot up into a flock of ducks, I don’t expect ALL the birds to fall out of the sky.”

      I also need to point out that Misters Hopkins and McClard were immortalized on Saturday.
