While I’ve had access to Ancestry.com, I looked up my parents and a few other more recent relatives in their yearbook collection. I learned something I didn’t know about my dad.
Until I saw the photos, I never knew – or at least I don’t ever remembering hearing anyone mention – that he worked on the school newspaper. In 1952, according to the Tate High School (Pensacola, Fla.) yearbook, William Hahn was a reporter, and in 1953, he was listed as a business manager.
I’ve always liked writing, and although I never worked on the school paper, I did grow up to work in television news. It’s something I never knew I had in common with him. Isn’t that strange? I would sure like to find an old issue of the “Crimson and Gray” and read an article that he wrote.
