Cross and Crown

Fox Footprints: local history

The Appleton Public Library is very interested in preserving local history and collecting our shared stories. This blog is a place to share those stories, sometimes from Appleton, sometimes from elsewhere in Wisconsin. I hope to connect people with others who are interested in the footprints of the past. Feel free to chime in about your history.   -Karen

The library got a gift yesterday.  Someone donated their 1957 issue of the Cross and Crown.  If you’re not familiar with it, this is the yearbook from Fox Valley Lutheran High School.  We do maintain a collection of yearbooks from Appleton schools, but for some reason the oldest we had of this publication was 1991. 

There is a big gap between 1957 and 1991, so of course we’d like to fill it in!  If you happen to run across your old copy of a yearbook from any Appleton High school or Middle school, we would be happy to adopt it.   Spring cleaning is just around the corner.  At least that’s what the calendar says.  Sorry we can’t do anything about the weather!
