Members of the Class of 1910: Part 2 (Surnames M-W)

Listed below are some of the members of the Madison High School Class of 1910 (surnames M-W) whose names are listed in the 1910 Tychoberahn. However, it's a good idea to keep in mind that a yearbook is not an official listing of graduates. Yearbooks are also not always entirely accurate. Sometimes they contain typographical errors; sometimes they contain inside jokes that affect their "accuracy" as far as outsiders are concerned. I hope that posting their names will draw some responses from relatives or others who can provide additional information about these Madison High School graduates.

Longtime Madisonians may find some familiar surnames in the list. I have also included some comments with tentative biographic information for a few of the graduates (shown in italics). Each entry in the yearbook includes school activities (if any) and a brief description (shown in quotes) that presumably says sometime about the person's physical appearance, background, or personality. I'm including some of these as well.

Again, I hope this will help jog memories and elicit responses, comments, and corrections.
