If you click on Junior High Memories I have posted a page from John Deere yearbook. I will be putting additional ones out over time. If anyone who lives in quad cities has a Coolidge or Coal Valley 9th grade yearbook that I can borrow to scan pages in let me know.
Thanks Jerry Kassel

Bob Phelps just sent the following links.
After looking at them they bring back so many memories. I lived in downtown Moline from 1944 to 1955 before moving to Molette during my 9th grade year. Bob: I lived only one block from your family's diner. Best hamburgers I ever tasted. I went to Irving Grade school and know they have a site on Facebook. There maybe more and will investIgate. I recommend all 1958 classmates to visit these sites.
Thanks Bob for the Information..

If you were alive in 1957, and old enough to enjoy Rock and Roll, you will probably remember the group, "The Diamonds" who had just launched their super hit "Little Darling." For you that are too young to remember - it was a time when the performers were happy, enjoying themselves, respecting their fans, dressed appropriately and their lyrics could be understood. They did not feel obligated to scream, eat the microphone, mumble inaudible lyrics or trash the set. In 1957, The Diamonds had a hit with "Little Darling." 47 years later, they were requested to perform at Atlantic City. This link leads to both performances. The videos are not very sharp, but the music makes up for it.
Watch the first one then scroll down for the one 47 years later.
