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.


Scuffle in the Stands

Regional Basketball at SEMO 03-01-1967By the end of basketball season, you start looking for different angles. I shot some floor action at the Regionals March 1, 1967, then went up into the stands to get some high shots.

At what looks like the end of a game, a difference of opinion broke out. I only had time to shoot three frames before it was all over.

It was such a nothing event The Missourian didn’t run a photo, and I don’t think the cops were even aware it happened. (You can click on the photo to make it larger.)

That’s the way disagreements were solved in the old days before everybody was packing heat and “standing their ground.”

Here was a scuffle at a stock car race where the police WERE involved.
