Teachers Tea for Jo Henderson

In 2012, Carolyn Douglas ('63') Larkin found some photographic slides taken by Mr Garvice Douglas in the early 60s. Carolyn had those slides scanned and sent them to Frank Harris ('64). We ran a slide show of them and other pictures of the newly commissioned LoneOakAlumni.Org archival project at the 2012 Lone Oak Community Breakfast and received many great comments. Since there was no identification or dating on the slides Carolyn found, we then set about to identify and date those pictures. Below is one set of images from those slides.

To make a long story very short, thanks to Carolyn, Joe Henderson, Jane Harton, Gwen Helfer and Francis Goode, we know the event was a Tea hosted by Loraine Douglas, in appreciation of Mrs Wayne (Jo) Henderson at Mrs Hick's house in late Spring or early Summer of 1963. Because of Wayne Henderson's job, the family was moving back to Oak Ridge, Tennessee and the Tea was given in honor of Jo Henderson's years of teaching Science and Biology at LOHS. The Henderson's were well known and active in the Lone Oak Community, so the Tea shows many more than just LOHS teachers.

Clicking an image will open a slide show within which are captions for each photo. All caption lists are left to right in the picture for those we were able to identify. If anyone knows others or the lists need correction, please let us know. We hope you enjoy this view of LOHS faculty and friends.
