Julienne High School Yearbook, Class of 1938 Pt 1

I've written several posts about Chaminade High School in Dayton, Ohio, but this is the first post about it's sister school- Julienne High School. (The two are merged into one today)

Yearbook, 1938

Julienne high School was a catholic high school that existed between 1927-1973. In 1973, Chaminade high school and Julienne merged into one- Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School. The 1938 yearbook was the earliest book I could find available online.

Class of 1938: (Part One):

Marjorie Asplan
~"Margie"--A letter girl--independent--studious--frank--even-tempered--disposed to conversatism in her friendships~

Margie was a tough search. I did find that she was born Margaret Mary Asplan...her social security claim has her name as Marjorie Mary Asplan and her grave reads Margaret M. Honestly, I think if this is the same person, she was probably born Margaret Mary Asplan, but went by Marjorie, or Margie, as a sort of nickname because of how popular the first two names Margaret Mary were at the time. 

Margie was born on 07 Jan 1920 in Hamilton, Ohio to Mathias F. and Clara J. (Streuter) Asplan. In 1930 & 1940 she was living with her parents and brother Ralph at 651 St. Nicholas Ave in Dayton- the house is still there- was built in 1910. In 1940, Margie was a stenographer.

It looks like Betty and Elwood divorced in Dec 1969...although something looks off about the divorce record--- in 1969, they would have been married 30 years with 5 children...the divorce record shows that they were married 5 years with one I'm not sure if this is a strange coincidence that these two people have the same names as our Betty and Eugene or if the years were a typo.
