My mother-in-law found these wonderful report cards tucked in the back of a drawer of her new antique oak sideboard. The first report card for Miss Dorothy Hughes shows great grades but two years later there is a marked decrease in her grades. What happened I wonder? Family problems, new teacher, new school, simply the move from high school to college? You can't see in the second report card but the classes include Psychology, Dietetics and Foods, along with Biology, Physics and Economics! How interesting! I wonder if she graduated from college? Maybe this is why these were tucked way, way in the back of the drawer where not even the antique dealer saw them! Either way, they are a wonderful treasure!
