This is a picture of the first grade class of St. Margaret Mary Catholic School in Chicago, Illinois, in 1935 (click on the photo for a larger view). My dad, Fred Pape, is in the second row, all the way to the right, on his knees in front of the nun. Dad says he was placed there because he was a troublemaker. Dad's cousin, Jack Bleidt, is in the front row right behind the "1" sign. They both would have been about six years old in this picture.
This photo was provided by my second cousin Bill from a collection belonging to his dad, Jack, and grandmother, my great aunt Martha Pape Bleidt.
