    On December 14th, 1953, Life Magazine published an article entitled “An Examination of Secondary Education: First of a Series; U.S. Public High Schools”.  This article featured Davenport High School, photographed by Yale Joel, and chronicled the daily efforts of the students and staff of the time. Click here to view the magazine and read the article (starting on page 133). We would like to learn more about the individuals featured and photographed in the article.  Where are they now? If you have any information about the mysterious motorcyclist, the young lady with her parrot, the students sneaking to the grocery store across the street for lunch, please contact us at mckissicks@mail.davenportschools.org.
