Dear Readers,

I received the following inquiry over on our facebook page from one, Mike Slaubaugh. It is reprinted here with his permission in an effort to help locate a lost bit of Oaklandon related information:

Being from over 100 years ago, this is likely lost to history, but worth a try here. I am the webmaster of a site devoted to the history of the Indiana State High School Track & Field Champions. I am currently trying to track down the year of graduation for all medalists from 1904 to present. However, I have reached a dead end with the only medalist from Oaklandon HS:

Weaver (first name unknown), 3rd in the hurdles at the state meet held on May 16, 1914

A search of online yearbooks and newspaper archives have not yielded Weaver's first name or year of graduation (he may or may not have been a senior the year he medaled).

Any help with that information for Weaver is appreciated!

statemeetresults - 1914

If you can shed any light on this mystery please visit Mr. Slaubaugh's very interesting website: you may contact him via the email provided there.

I have actually been making much headway in finding various resources for historical information on Oaklandon, unfortunately the resource I find myself short on lately has been that of time to devote to this diversion.

The DigAlthough I have not been able to share as much information - by way of posting articles - I have been doing many things behind-the-scenes that although they may not bear out the normal fruits for which I seek, they nevertheless deserve mention in the context of this blogging effort and have made it necessary for me to create a topic area here in which I might share some of my thoughts and experiences as I attempt to expand upon this repository of all things Oaklandon.

Introducing "The Dig" section of the blog. An area where I can blog about the blog. Watch this topic for some interesting content coming soon!
