A few weeks back, I was at a Antique Mall in the Dayton, Ohio area (I blogged about the visit). I was mesmerized by some school report cards, for Delbert D. Heller. The item for sale was a bundle of report cards and a few pictures too. Though surname has no connection to any of mine, I could not leave them behind.
The report cards start in 1915 and continue through 1926, from Greenville, Ohio Public Schools. Overall, Delbert was a good student, well except for History. It does not seem he was very interested in that subject, at all.
So many questions came to mind about Delbert…
- Who is he?
- What did he do in life?
- What became of him?
- Why are his report cards in the antique mall?
I figured with some research I would be able to answer some of the questions. But, I might never find out how and why the records were in the antique mall. Once I finish researching Delbert, I just might take a peek into the lives of his various teachers. Stay tuned for more on his life and maybe his teachers.
