...Of Beauty and Utility

August 24, 1940, Oshkosh Daily Northwestern
Revisiting this news coverage like this seems woefully late, considering that the parish decided way back in 2015 to demolish the school this article talks about.  The school WAS demolished last summer.  After all, a new Seton Middle School, of which this facility had evolved into after many years of elementary service, was just finishing construction near St. Mary Catholic High School in Neenah, making this facility obsolete. Still, as matter of history, it's nice to see what was promoted about the school when it was shiny and new. (And yes, the article IS dated 1940, though at first glance it looks like 1910 due to bad microfilming; the 4's just didn't come out right.)
