The photos below (and many above) on this page were submitted from a 1911 Northwestern Military Academy booklet owned
by Russell J. Cameron, submitted by Sue Cameron. Sue tells us:
"While going thru my mom's basement, looking for old pictures, I came across
my Granpa's book, dated 1911. It has numerous pictures and is still in pretty good shape. I checked online and got your email
address and thought I'd write.The book talks about courses of study and alot of info in it.
I have a whole book, not sure what info you may want. Here's the front, I thought
at first it was a year book. But looking thru it, it may just be a "catalog" for interested students. I found a piece
of paper inside that seems to be an order form, I've attached that too. Seems pretty fancy for a catalog, but who knows.
As far as I can tell, I do not see any pics of my Granpa, nor is he listed in the "Catalogue of Students for 1910-1911". But
as you can see he wrote his name on the book, front and back. No family members alive that may know if he did attend
or not. There are 159 pages, with alot of pics and info about the school, Courses of study, Outline of Instruction,
Attendance, Prizes given, Hygienic and physical culture, Religious and moral training, Military department, Amusements and
Requirement of students admission."
We hope you enjoy these vintage photos as much as we do. 'Left Click' on any photo to view a larger version.
