Saint Joseph's School
in Troy circa 1955

The photocopies of these photographs were kindly contributed by Lisa M. Murray of Troy. Lisa writes, "My Mom came across some old photos that were my Dad's from when he was in 8th grade at St. Joseph's School in South Troy. I thought some of the visitors to the website might like to see them." We certainly would like to, Lisa - thank you very much!

Lisa writes, "The photo above is of four of the 8th-grade students posing near what appear to be models of a Catholic church altar. The photo isn't labeled with the names of the students, but from another labeled photo, I've been able to identify them. My father, Joseph Corbett (known as "Butch"), graduated from Catholic High in 1960, so I would estimate that this picture was taken around 1955/56."

Row 2, left to right: John Bowman, Dennis Marr, Robert Campbell, Edward Lillis, John Huber, Alan Shaw, Fred Facteau, Tom Mooney.
Row 3, left to right: Patricia Eldridge, Gail Berghammer, Frances Harrigan, Patricia Sanderson, Lydia Bilinski, Betty Ann Dalton, Carole Rado, Mary Agnes McNamara.
Row 4, left to right: John Dwyer, Joseph Corbett (Lisa's father), Betty May, Patricia Durand, Mary Bassett, Nancy Cornwell, Georgianna Mosher, Noreen Bouchey.

Lisa writes, "The photo above was taken in the classroom. I'm guessing there must have been two 8th-grade classes, because there are about twice the number of students in the actual 8th-grade graduation photo (see below). This is a photo of the class my father, Joseph Corbett, was in. The photo is labeled on the back by row - four rows, going from the front of the class to the back, left to right."

Lisa writes, "This third photo isn't labeled with names. The only thing written on the back is "Butch under arrow", indicating where my father, Butch Corbett, is in the photo. He's about a third of the way from the left, with a pointed hat and glasses on. I don't know what the significance is of what they were all wearing, or who the two uniformed people are in the center of the photo. Looks like Memorial Day or something."
