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.

Notre Dame Highlites

Notre Dame Highlites Queen Crowning c 1966You’re on your own on this one. The negative sleeve said “Notre Dame Highlites Queen Crowning,” but it didn’t have a date, so I couldn’t find it in The Missourian to get more information.

    In the first photo the boy on the far right is Ken Westrich of Kelso, MO. The girl standing to the left of the queen and also crowning the queen in the last photo is Vicki Maurer. She and Ken have been married many years! I’ll forward this post to my relatives who were classmates of these people and see if we can get more names.

    Beverly, is Vicki a sister of Ron, Don and Jim Maurer? Just curious. Ron was in my wedding.

    It appears to be the senior class of 1967.
    The large photo of all on the left – Laura Todt with Robert Bayer, ? with Richard Graham, Patrick Bucek(?) and Kenny Westrich on the right. Some are siblings of my class.

    Jeff, Yes, Vicki Maurer is the oldest sister of Ron, Don, and Jim Maurer. There is another set of twins in the family, older sisters of Ron and Don. Their names are Diane and Joanne, but they
    go by Didi and Jodi. Good people!
