Top Left: Viola Bausman. Viola would have been about 19 years old. Written on back, in pencil (not Viola's handwriting): Earl Rummel, Alta Phillips Pierson, Lucille Roberts, Rosella Bird Schalk. The man in the middle is not identified, but think he was probably their teacher. Assume this is the Scales Mound High School Senior Class picture since they all graduated that year.
