Physiography! Caesar! Shorthand! Civics! (I maintain that Civics should return to the curriculum.) I don’t know what enrollment was, but it had to be under 50 students: the town population was around 1750.

For perspective, consider that Armistice Day, occurring at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month to mark the end of “the war to end all wars,” had yet to occur.

As Wikipedia would say: “Citation needed.”

What’s missing from the curriculum? (Hint: it begins with “A”).
