Alumni Book

From the collection of the Franklin County Historical and Museum Society:

Although it is not labeled, this log appears to be of an alumni association of Franklin Academy in Malone, NY. The graduation year, name, spouse name, dues from 1921-1934 and an address of the members of the alumni association are noted.

Did you spy a previous congressman in this list of locals? 

Clarence Kilburn represented the North Country as a member of the U.S. Congress from 1940-1965.  He and his wife, Anne Crooks Kilburn, lived at 59 Milwaukee Street, next door to the current House of History museum.  Anne Crooks Kilburn was first cousin to Elizabeth Crooks Kirk, the last resident of the House of History before it became a museum.
