Below is the contents of an email sent by me to Mike Slaubaugh in response to this mystery:

Subject: "Weaver" Mystery Solved: 1914 State Meet

Hello Mike,

As you may recall I posted regarding your quest for more information about one “Mr. Weaver” – first name and year of graduation in particular. (see April 19, 2021)

Well as luck would have it I happened upon a 1940 yearbook for Oaklandon High School. This book contains a complete list of alumni for the school covering the years 1911 to 1939.

The listing for 1914 displayed the following:

Freeman Apple
Tena Evans
Minnie Lefforge
Thomas McCord
Emilia Sellers
Virgil Stoner
Claud Watson
John Weaver
Mervin Smith
Wilber Dalzell
Reva Shepherd
Ruth Fultz
Mary Records

(see page twenty-three:

I would therefor conclude that you would be safe in listing the “tied for 3rd finisher in the hurdles at the state meet held on May 16, 1914” as “Weaver, John – 12th grade”

Thanks again for reaching out!

I now look forward to publishing this newly discovered year book in an upcomming post.
