Winn Brook School

Here are some Winn Brook pictures. You can click these to enlarge them.

These pictures are from Yvonne Bourget, John Guthrie, and Paul Larkin. I believe there were at least two classes in each grade. Does anyone have pictures from the other classes?

This was a cub scout meeting in the gym at Winn Brook School (where we also had assemblies, gym classes with Miss Kohler, and woodworking with Mr. Vaughn.) The man in the middle is Red Sox centerfielder Jimmy Piersall, who lived on Claflin Street in a rented house that was used by several Red Sox players over the years, including the pitcher Tommy Brewer. I don't recognize most of these kids, because they were younger, but here are a few I do know. Starting in the bottom left of the first row, are Alan Bryant and Malcolm Selver. I recognize a few of the other faces in that row, but I don't know any of the names. In the second row, starting from the RIGHT, I don't remember the first person, but the second one is Ron Santurjian, the third is Ricky Johnson, and the fifth (in the white shirt) is Eugene Lovett. In the third row I don't remember any of the names except the third person from the left, partly behind the row, is Donny Snowden. In the fourth row, the first person is Fred Ferris, and the fourth is Bruce Gibson. Just beyond Piersall, the second person is Michael Citro, in front of him is Tommy Sullivan, and the last two in that row are John Guthrie and Gordon Kiefer. In front of John Guthrie is George Keleher. Photo and caption from John Gutherie.

Here is some history on Winn Brook Schools, submitted by Bob Hughes (Class of 1959):

In 1928 the town acquired eight acres of farmland bordering the Winn Brook for school,park, or recreational purposes.  $13,000.00 was appropriated for this purpose.  In 1935 the Winn Brook School was built on this site with Miss Eva Burns as the 1st principal.  There were initially 314 pupils in grades K-6, 10 teachers and one janitor.  In 1952 the principal became Mr. Robert L. Blaney.  He served in this capacity until 1988. The school became overcrowded with the emergence of World War 2's children into the public school system, and an addition was added in 1958.  Our teachers were talanted, dedicated, and unified to provide their pupils with the very best fundamental educations available.  Their efforts resulted in the remarkable contributions of Winn Brook graduates to the achievements of the Class of '61 at BHS.
