  • Women:  By 1921 the longer skirt was back - some long and uneven at the bottom. The short skirt was popular by 1925.  This period was called the Flapper Age.

Hugh E.Stephenson, Jr., M.D. 1928-1932



Betty Jacobs Aufranc 1931-1937

  • “In the old Lee school the 4th grade was upstairs in the northeast corner, and the bricks had come out of the corner in spots, and when it rained and the wind blew we would move our desks toward the center of the room. When it snowed and the wind blew hard, the snow flakes would come dancing in. It was in the spring of 1935 we moved into the new Lee School…we had to take all our books, Crayolas, and other items home with us that night and bring them back the next day to the ‘new’ Lee School.”



Fred Krusekoph 1930’s

  • “I started First Grade in 1931, and Miss Fewsmith was our teacher. She was a wonderful teacher, and she made us learn how to read and write, she was tough, but also real nice. I remember I kissed my first girl, and it made her cry, and this little girl told on me. I thought I was in bad trouble – but Miss Fewsmith just laughed and told her, ‘Someday, honey, you will want the boys to kiss you.’”



Robert Sisson 1930’s

  • “We had a unique system to control behavior. Each month the grade that received the least number of ‘checks’ against it for students’ misbehavior would get Friday afternoon off from school. I think it was a pretty good system. What do you think?”



Naoma Powell 1930’s



Anna Teague 1930’s

  • “We vacated the new building in less than one week because of a leaking roof…Ms. Fewsmith, first grade, had high, lace collars and a rocking chair…In 6th grade, Richard Johnson and I got the giggles. I stuck my head in the desk and couldn’t get it out. They had to call Mr. Goslin, the custodian.”



Leslie Green 1930’s

  • “When I was in the 6th grade, my family moved to Daytona Beach, Florida for a year. The entire 6th grade wrote to me there with their best wishes. We returned to Columbia. I played football for Hickman along with friends Earl Proctor, Sam Walton, Jack Nowell, Clay Cooper, and Fred Brady, to name a few.”



John Epple, Jr. 1932

  • “I got in trouble and got sent to the principal’s office. The principal’s name was Miss Lewis…I was given the maximum penalty, which consisted of sitting in the coat closet sitting on a hard wood paddle. After staring at the wooden paddle for a while it occurred to me that I could improve its looks by taking sharpness off its edges. So I took out my pocketknife and started scraping off little pieces. By that time the wooden paddle was gone and all that was left of it was a pile of shavings on the floor. Just then Miss.Lewis walked in, rolled her eyes, grabbed me by the ear, and took me to class.”

  • “In November of 1998, when I was in Mrs. Hood’s class, a tornado destroyed my house. I lost everything. . . Not long after I returned to school, Mrs. Hood planned a surprise party for me at school. The party was called, ‘The Giving Tornado.’ Everyone in the class, including Mrs. Hood, brought gifts for me. The entire class brought in money to get me a huge stuffed animal. It meant so much to me that Mrs. Hood planned that party. I still have the stuffed animal. Every time I see it, I think of Mrs. Hood and my 3rd grade class.”
