Members of the Class of 1907: Part 2 (Surnames J-W)

Listed below are the members of the Madison High School Class of 1907 whose surnames begin with the letters J-W and whose photos are included in the 1907 Tychoberahn.

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 1907 Tychoberahn.If you have any additional information about any of these members of the Class of 1907, please contact me by email or leave a comment.

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.
