Bumping to the extremities and some shelf wear. Front hinge cracked, mostly separated, but hanging on. Cracking to the rear hinge has started. No writing found inside. Class pictures (grades 9-12), activities, and lots of ads for local businesses operating during World War II. The war is referenced with an Honor Roll of servicemen who were former students at Alvin High School. The endpapers are illustrated by Terry McKean depicting campus activities and war and patriotic images (skull in hat with swastika on it, torch of Statue of Liberty, American flag, bombed buildings, etc.). Incidentally, this was the year, 1943, that the school started its Sports Hall of Fame for Senior boys or boys who would not be in school the following year because of joining the armed forces in the war effort. And if this Hall of Fame was still around in the 1960s, its most famous inductee had not been born yet-Nolan Ryan (born 1947).
