I'll share the notes from Mary Jo's pictures -- you email back the true identities of the unnamed.

Kindergarten - 1951

"Judy" is the second person, top row -- Mary Jo is 5th from the left; "Grant" is the 1st person, second row -- "Stanley" (with a heart) is at the far right; "Walter B." is on the bottom row, far right; the cutie next to him looks suspiciously like "Lulu Anaya Summers."


Mary Jo Schmith wasn't kidding when she said she knew Lulu before she was "Lulu". This newspaper article appeared -- if my math is correct -- on September 21, 1951.

Need some help here!! Looks like Lulu maybe upper left, Mary Jo beneath her, and Margie Poe beneath her


Miss Gastonguay - Grade 3 - 1954

Looks like Mary Jo in the upper right, Margie Poe at lower right next to the teachers. Is that Sharon Montijo third from left at the bottom?
