Some of you may have heard that Walter Klahn, husband of Barbie Jones Klahn (SLHS '57) and former employee of Imperial Sugar Company, died a few days ago. (I want to thank my aunt, Mayme Rachuig Hause (SLHS '48), for sending me this obituary.) My condolences go to Walter's family. Here are a couple of photos of him in the Engineering Department of Imperial Sugar, sometime around 1960.

I found the following document in a very old Imperial scrapbook. I think it is a draft of an obituary that appeared in the Texas Industrial News in 1930, when Dr. Deatherage died. I hope to find more information on Dr. Deatherage.
The following photographs come from Leon & Bettye Anhaiser. They were in Ray Anhaiser's scrapbook.
|Ray as a 1947 graduate of Sugar Land High School.|
|An undated photo, but it may be 1940 when Sugar Land High School organized its first marching band. Elementary and junior high musicians marched with the big kids in those days.|
|Ray with an unidentified friend sometime in the mid 1940s.|
