1880s Rochester, Minnesota high school record book discovered

Another example has surfaced to show why we need to check again for family information we may have looked for 6 months or five years ago. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to learn that an 1880s high school record book for a family member’s high school had been discovered? If you have family who attended high school at that time in Rochester, Minnesota, you may be in luck. You would also learn that Charles H. Mayo was a classmate of that person. Yes, that Mayo, as in what is now the world-famous Mayo Clinic based in Rochester. Charles was even a good student! 

A long article by Jordan Shearer in the online Rochester Post Bulletin of 19 July 2023 tells about the discovery of the record book. It doesn’t say where it will be housed. Hopefully, it will be in a place with proper storage and temperature control.
