I found this Turlock Union High School annual called "The Alert" in the Ribbons of Pink Antiques store in Jacksonville, FL. This particular book belonged to Hollis Carroll Powell. There are a few pages of colorful autographs included. I will post one page of autographs per post.
|Hollis Powell -- Senior -- 1944|
I was not able to find much on Hollis. He only died last month and there wasn't much to his obit. I have a feeling that he was never married or had a family.
