The Senior Class

The students of Westminster College had nicknames for each of the class levels. The Seniors were "The Managers", the juniors were "The Tankers". because there is no mention of other students in the yearbook, I must assume at this point (and yes, I am looking for verification) that this was a two-year college. I will

I also need to note at this time that one of the hometowns listed for many of the students is spelled "Cooledge", Texas. The correct spelling is Coolidge. According to texasescapes.com, "Like several Texas towns we could name, Coolidge was misspelled for awhile. It went by the name Cooledge for 27 years - from 1903 to 1930. President Calvin Coolidge was president from 1923 to 1929 - and seeing his name in print so often may have led someone to investigate." I will continue to refer to the town as it is spelled in the yearbook, for consistency's sake.
