Aileen’s High School Days in West Seattle

Aileen graduated from grammar school and entered West Seattle High.  Much to my amazement she was on the girls basketball team. She was not that big a person.  I so wish I had learned of this and heard her stories.  My Aunt Aileen is the one on the far right in the front row, seated  next to the wall. Unfortunately there are no names listed on the back of this photo.

Aileen and basketball?

Here are a few poses of her with the short hair.

My Aunt Aileen was very good at the “proper thing to do.” So it is not unusual to find that her high school graduation invitation has survived.

The Seattle Public Library (Hugh and Jane Ferguson Seattle Room 10th floor)  has a wonderful collection on their top floor of high school year books.  Here is the one for the Blue and Gold.  Can you find my Aunt Aileen among the other students?
