More from the 1924-25 Class of Westbrook Commercial Academy:
Olga Peterson (#91) is the most well documented. She was born in 1906 in New York to Swedish parents, Carl F. and Augusta B. Peterson. They lived in Cattaraugus county, New York from 1915 to 1930. This is the same county as Westbrook Academy. In 1930 Olga was still living with her parents, but working at a local bank.
Her classmates, Edward Daniels (#107) and Katharine Hyland (#54) also lived in Cattaraugus county, but not with their parents. Edward was a lodger, and it’s noted on the 1925 New York census that he’s a bookkeeper. Katharine lived with an aunt and uncle, Earl T. and Rose Langmade.
They are 3 very handsome students!
