A Call for Lowndes County School Annuals

lee-high-annual-19751School annuals are a wonderful source of historical information about local individuals and customs.  They are not only a record of ones days in school, but on a larger scale they document changes in society.  For some, they offer one of the few remaining images of that individual.

That is why The Local History Room at the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library is calling for everyone to search through their closets and pull out those old trunks to locate any Lowndes County school annuals that they would be willing to donate in order to fill in for years that are currently missing!!

Below is the list of Lowndes County school annuals in alphabetical order that we DO currently have.  A consecutive run of annuals is indicated by a dash between two dates (For example “1971-1985”):

Caldwell High School: 1971-1983, 1986-1989, 1992

Caledonia High School: 1953-1956, 1960, 1973, 1996

Columbus High School: 1993-1995, 1997, 1999-2003

East Lowndes Academy: 1971

Heritage Academy: 1972-1974, 1976-1980, 1983-1985, 1987 (Elementary School), 1989, 1993, 1995, 1998, 1999, 2001, 2002

Hunt Junior High School: 1990

Joe Cook Junior High School: 1982

Lee High School: 1950, 1951, 1953-1986, 1990-1992

Lee High Sabre (Literary booklet published by senior class of Lee High School): 1966-1974, 1976, 1978-1983
