Dresden High School Class of 1936

Search for Dresden Tennessee at Amazon!

I really wish the scanner fairy would stop by our house and give me a new scanner.  I need one that can scan large pictures and even newspapers.  But since the scanner fairy hasn't shown up I'll have to make due with the old HP All in one.

Here is the Dresden High School Class of 1936 with Nathan H. Moran on the bottom row, first one on the right.  At the bottom of the picture is the motto: Effort brings success.

Congratulations Class of '36

  1. thank you for the post, thought i would never see this picture again. dhs has made no effort to display or preserve the class photos.

    1. Hi dwpbike,
      My husband remembers when they tore the old high school down in the early 1970's. He remembers there was a display case that highlighted the WWII veterans and also they had all of the class pictures, trophies, etc on display from the beginning of the school until the time it was demolished. Most of the memorabilia was discarded but a few items were saved and placed in the new Dresden High School building.

      Are you by any chance a part of the Dresden Class of 36? If so, would you be willing to tell me who you are in the class picture?? Did you know Nathan Moran and the Moran family?
