Kenneth in High School
My grandfather, Kenneth Cooper, grew up in small towns in northeast Kansas -- Atchison and Doniphan (the latter of the two is barely there any more).
This photo is from about 1935/1936, before Kenneth went off to college at the College of Emporia. This is before he met my grandmother at C of E; before he went off for a M.A. at the University of Nebraska; before he went off for a Ph.D. at the University of Missouri; and before he moved to Nashville to take an appointment at Peabody College (now the education school at Vanderbilt).
All that is still ahead for him. At the moment, he's just showing us how cool the car is.
