School: Loyal, Wis. High School Graduates (1906)

Contact: Pete O'Malley

Original Query about this Photo

I have a collection of what appears to be the 1906 Loyal High School Graduates. The mat is inscribed, "1906 Loyal High School". There are 10 portraits of individuals on the mat, 2 of them men and 8 women. I found this group photo in an Antique Store in Portage, WI. The image below is a flatbed scanner image of the piece greatly reduced in size and focus. I could not get the photo bed of the entire mat close enough to the scanner table to do much better without risking damage to the piece. However, I think this will give you a general idea of what I have. The actual dimension of the entire mat are, 14"s vertical, and 11"s horizontal. The photo bed is 7.5"s x 9"s and each individual, oval, portrait is 1.5"s x 2"s with the center one being a little larger. May have been the Valedictorian. What you see here is primarily the photo bed with a little mat border around it, but the real border of the mat extends much farther, as you can tell by the dimensions I have included in my description. I am looking for some information regarding the graduating class of 1906 in Loyal that may help me to authenticate it's origins. Any help would be much appreciated.

Peter told me that Mable Anderson Weyhmiller (sp?) and a Clare Thomas, the sister of Roy Thomas were apparently two of the people in this photo. He sent the picture to the Loyal area and the local history club where it was circulated until someone indicated that Mable Weyhmiller was in the upper right of the collage of cameo portraits on this piece. They also identified a Clar, or Clare Thomas as being on it, but they did not specify where.  I have no connection to the Weyhmillers, Andersons or the seller of this item just one family historian trying to help out another.
