An Unexpected Bonus!

I noticed at the Utah State History Site that they have a collection of High School Yearbooks. I spent an hour there one morning going through a few of them and reaped a jewel.

A yearbook staff member, or someone, got the spelling of Beryl’s last name wrong. This is seventeen-year-old Beryl Burt, pictured on her Senior Class Page (23) in the 1923 Granite High School Yearbook, The Granitian, and a thought attributed to or about her. I wonder if she selected it--she wouldn't have misspelled her own name.

She looked just like her granddaughter, Sherry, looked as a young woman.

You can read Part 1 of Beryl Burt Sanborn's biography here, and find links to additional posts about her.
