CCVS – Evolution of the Yearbook.

Highschool yearbooks have been a tradition for well over  a century.  The Cornwall Community Museum’s archives has a good cross section of these books from CCVS for visitors and researchers to view, the following is a small sample of the range of Yearbooks in our collection.

1967

1958

1937

1928

Do you remember when you had to buy your own textbooks and notebooks for high school?

In Cornwall would-be scholars would make an annual trek to Kyte’s on Pitt Street, to meet their academic needs.

The history of Kyte’s has been lovingly told in Joan Levy-Earle’s book THE LEGACY OF CW KYTE, copies are available at the Museum’s bookroom for $20.

Sterling Silver medal awarded to Evelyn Durocher, form II, for highest marks, 1911, Cornwall High School.
