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.





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.
