Members of the Class of 1901 - Part 2: Science and English Courses

The "graduating exercises" for the Madison High School Class of 1901 were held Friday, June 14, 1901 in the Assembly Chamber of the State Capitol. Lueder's Orchestra provided music. The Honorable L.D. Harvey, State Superintendent, addressed the class on "Elements of Success." Storm Bull, a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Wisconsin, presented the diplomas.

There were four courses of study (tracks) at Madison High School in 1901: Ancient Classical Course (including Greek and Latin), Modern Classical Course, Science Course, and English Course. Graduates in the first two courses of study are listed in my previous post. The remainder are listed below.
