Lots of great comments came from this post. Here you go:

Diana Grant: This is Ethel Jacobson...I will be using this in my next book regarding the teachers of the Eatonville School District. I would love to have the students ID’d.

Kevin Hoskins: Some look familiar but the person that stands out is, Clarabelle Cronkite Nordstrom. 2nd row from the top, 4 from the left.

Kaylee Nunyabiz: This is presently School House Island, in Alder Lake. No [it’s not standing] just some part of the foundation. It’s an island that during winter you can occasionally walk to. But it’s an easy swim out to it on a hot day.

Stephen Parton: The actual schoolhouse (or part of it) is the community hall along Highway 7 in Alder (next to the store).
