Wendell High School Yearbooks
The Wendell Historical Society is seeking Wendell High School yearbooks for the years 1934, 1935 and 1938. We would like to borrow these from the owners so they can be scanned into the Digital NC collection at UNC and then they will be returned. If you have any of these yearbooks, please contact Ray Hinnant at 919-365-3228 or email@example.com.
The Historical Society has already contributed all Wendell High School yearbooks 1933 to 1965 (except those three years) to the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center. The yearbooks have been digitized and are now available online.
