On 24 September 2013, we posted the names of students on CreoleGen who attended St. Mary’s Academy in 1937. Since that time, many of you have sent requests asking for scanned photos of relatives whose names were found here. As a result, I have scanned the class photos contained in the 1937 yearbook with the hope that many of you will find them to be helpful. Please let us know if you have been successful in your search.
