School Days, School Days ...

{March 1933 to Robert E Howard}

"Well - I live only two squares from old Hope High School now, and the building looks pretty much the same. The papers call it an "antiquated fire-trap" these days - though I saw it built in 1897, long before I ever attended it. There's a symbol of senility - the decadence of buildings one saw rising in one's far-off youth."

The 1905 year book - HPL's freshman year.*

[Sorry about the earlier typo. HPL was born August 20, 1890, and would have normally graduated in 1908 - at 18. He did not make it, though.]
