Caption 1938 Anacortes High School graduation
Description Anacortes High School class of 1938 at graduation in the old gym. Note "38" spelled out in flowers on the curtain behind the students. This would be the last year that graduates were attired in formal dress. Attempts had been made in 1931 to require caps and gowns at graduation, but the parents objected because the cost of $2.50 was deemed "too expensive", according to an article in the 2-26-1931 ANACORTES AMERICAN. That policy changed in 1939.
