Members of the Class of 1917: Part 1 (Surnames A-G)

Listed below are the members of the Madison High School Class of 1917 whose surnames begin with the letters A-G and whose photos are included in the 1917 Tychoberahn. Long-time Madison residents will recognize some of the surnames as those of families and individuals who played prominent roles in shaping Madison, including Bowman and Fauerbach.

The italicized information under many names is the information I have been able to find about that person; or, in some instances, speculation about how that person may be related to other alumni, or what they may have done after graduation. The quotations and information about high school activities are from the 1917 Tychoberahn.If you have any additional information about any of these members of the Class of 1917, please contact me by email or leave a comment.
