You may have heard or seen something about the recent discovery in an Oklahoma high school that was being refurbished, showing blackboard writing and drawing from 1917, perfectly preserved. A friend (thank you, Allen) forwarded me a news item that contained images of the blackboards. This is the closest I could find online, a link on Buzzfeed. I had thought this was just one or two blackboards in a single room when I heard the story, but it is quite a few, in several rooms, covering subjects like history, music, math, civics, and more. I bet they made paper Pilgrim hats and drew hand turkeys, too.
The author is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
