What does this group have in common?

Other than attending Bluffton HS in 1966,

it might simply be a random photo shoot

What does this group have in common? Other than the fact they were BHS students in 1966, it's possible they were randomly pulled out of the noon lunch line and promised to be in a yearbook photo. And, so, this classic photo is now tucked away in a 1966 Bluffton High School yearbook.


It's a classic pose. And, important enough to be spread over two pages.

Here's a photograph from the 1966 Bluffton High School yearbook. It was taken from above the entrance way to the old gym – once upon a time there was only one gym.

In our opinion, this photograph is a well-composed piece. It’s more than a simple snapshot.

And, the models in the photo represent an interesting cross-section of student activities and attitudes. Was this photo simply a “go to the cafeteria and grab a dozen students for a yearbook photo," or was it a purposeful selection and composition to this scene. Only the yearbook editor knows.

We'll attempt an identification. (Viewers are always smarter than we are in these ID projects. We welcome viewer corrections.)
