Lone Oak High School
Class of 1940 Collection

About This Site

This page provides links to all the information we presently have available for the LOHS Class of 40. From Buddy Rushing's collection we have a copy of the Baccalaureate Program for the Class of 1940.



The Class of 40 also produced a yearbook, which is accessible via the menu button above. The yearbook is titled as The Purple Flash Volumn II, so it is likely that no other yearbook was produced for 1938 and 1939. Compared to the 37 yearbook, the 1940 edition is a step down in "professionality." Almost from the perspective of the 37 annual having been produced by a printing company and the 40 annual done in house.

However it what produced and printed, the content still tells a lot about the class and the school, as the 1940 Foreword dreamed. We hope you enjoy this piece of history.

If you have addition information that is applicable to the Class of 37, please e-mail the site Webmaster. Please provide contact information so that we may reply.
