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.


1967 Notre Dame Play

The negative sleeve said Notre Dame Play 02-28-1967, then the 02 was overwritten to read 03-28-1967. The Missourian’s Google Archive has big holes in it for the weeks around both dates, so I’m going to have to guess this is a production of Brigadoon. Whatever it is, there is lots of cavorting going on, seemingly to music. One thing that is readily apparent is that not every male is made for a kilt.

    Bill Withers and I went to this play. We were dating girls in it at the time. We left at intermission and met(coincidence) my current wife, Barbara, and her friend Kris House and rode around with them for the rest of the night. Barbara had her brothers convertible. Shortly afterward Barbara and I began dating and now 45 years later we’re still happily married. If the play had been better we may have never gotten together.

    Russ how can you sleep at night!
    You went to see the play with Bill because you were dating a lady in the play. You dump her and the play at intermission and go riding around in a converiable with Barbara, Bill and Kris House all night. Then you marry Barbara and live happily ever after…
    I am proud of you!
