In 1948, Fairmont High School resumed publishing a yearbook. The last one was published in 1942 just after the start of World War. During the war paper was rationed and none was available for anything like this. There is no record of one having been published in 1946 or 1947. The Editor for the 1948 book was Mark Owen. Many well know Fairmonters are shown as high schoolers in this book.
The book was scanned and sent to us by Nathaniel Glasgow of New Bern, NC. Nathaniel is a 22 year-old archaeology major at Appachian State University in Boone, NC. He is the grandson of Pat Pittman, a member of this class, and the son of Pat's daughter Pat Leigh. During his down time from ASU Nathaniel is exploring his family history and is learing that the Pittmans are kin to everybody!
