Fairview School Abt. 1922-1923

        The attachment is a school photo of the students taken in either 1922/3.  I wish I could identify more of the people but unfortunately I can't.  I know the teacher's names; the short lady in front of the doors is Lois Scott and the Bow-Tied gentleman next to her is Henley Webb.  My Dad; George W. Hooks, is second from the right end in the first row.  The little girl next to him with the big Bow in her hair is his sister; Noreen Hooks Graham Spencer.  The first little girl in the second with the big Bow is their sister; Ruby Hooks Graham.  My Aunt Ruby will be 85 next month and still sharp as a tack.  I'll test her memory in May when I make my annual TN/KY pilgrimage to see if she can identify some more of the people in the photo.  I'm pretty sure there are some Fitzhughs, but I can't identify them.
