School 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
