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.


3rd Year Art Class Mystery

The Third Year Art Class produced calendars with images of local landmarks to present to Principal Fred Wilferth and School Superintendent Charles House.

I couldn’t find a story in The Missourian to give me any details. Like I’ve mentioned before, Google searches of old newspaper microfilm files are more miss than hit. It might have been that I shot it for The Tiger because a quick scan of the 1964 and 1965 Girardots turned up nothing.

School Superintendent presentation

In addition to Mr. House , I can identify the teacher, Edna Glenn; Ron Marshall; Norma Wagoner; Marcia Maupin; Martha Mahy and Nancy Jenkins. I’d guess on the others, but I’m probably wrong on the ones I THINK I know, so I’ll let you ID the rest.

Gallery of photos

Here are some miscellaneous photos of art students. I don’t know if they were part of this group or if they just got filed in with the Third Year Art Class.

I was NOT a member of the Art Class, something is clearly evidenced by my experience with Art 101 at Ohio University.

    Did you know Mrs Glenn was a Miss America contestant? I have forgotten what state she represented.

    photo #5 is JoAnn Rodgers class of 67

    photo #8 is, I believe, Kathy Lewis whose uncles owned and operated “Wimpys”

    I remember that Mrs Glenn was a beauty contestant.

    It was Edna Glenn who inspired me to become an art teacher. I am forever grateful for the experiences I had in her art classes. I kept her as my role model throughout my teaching career. I can only I hope that I inspired my art students as much as Mrs. Glenn did for me.
