George Cannon School on Midway Island…


First Grade Class of ’60-’61

That’s where I finished out the first grade. Being only six, most of my memories of the Navy Base on Midway Island, have been bolstered by the stories of my parents and the photos I have of that time.

Unfortunately, I don’t remember a single classmate, nor do I remember the teacher’s name. I wonder if the teachers were civilian contractors or were they dependents, that also had a teaching credential? If they were civilians, did they come there with their families or were they all single?

I hope that my classmates will see themselves and point out where they are in the photo and add their memories of that most wonderful of places–Midway Island!
