Sherwood Select School

Strange as it seems, the graduating class of one person in 1910 beat the class of 1911 - there was no one to graduate in 1911!

In 1912, two folks graduated: Jennie Conaughty, who I believe went on to become a teacher at Sherwood, and George Mosher.

1913 was a busy year, with 9 graduates:

Archibald Bradley
Lyman Cook
Henrietta Bly Lehrbach
Esther Haines Giles
Phebe King
Patrick Purcell
Maude Seccomb Alvord
Emily Slocum Wilbur
Harry Smith Cook

Phebe Mabel King, daughter of James Marsh King and Lillian E. Hoxie, was Valedictorian and Class Secretary. Phebe later graduated from Cornell University in 1922 and returned to teach at the Sherwood Select School. She apparently soon became Principal of the school.

Thomas M. Tryniski (scan), Roger Post (transcriber), "KING, Phebe Mabel: Obituary," The Citizen, Auburn, Cayuga Co., NY, Sunday, 30 May 1982, "She was a graduate of . . . Cornell University Class of 1922. . . . Upon graduation from college she returned to teach at the Sherwood Select School and became Principal. From 1927 until her retirement in 1951 she taught in the White Plains School District, White Plains, N.Y."
