Treasure Chest Tuesday - Emily Auble's 1913 High School Entrance Record Card

Today's Tuesday's Treasure is the 1913 high school entrance record card for my grandmother, Emily Kemp Auble (1899-1977), to San Diego High School.

The extracted information on this entrance card is:

The source citation for this record is:

San Diego [Calif.] Senior High School, "Entrance Record Card," Cum File Cabinet C-D, Emily Auble card, 1913; San Diego High School Alumni Association History Center, San Diego, California.

The card above is the card created at the high school when my grandmother, Emily Auble enrolled on 8 September 1913.  She was 14 years old at the time.  She came from Lincoln School, which was on 12th Street between E and F streets (according to the 1915 San Diego City Directory).

Note that the grade criteria and the graduation requirements are listed on this side of the card, and the class grades are on the other side of this card, and I will show them next week.

Emily Auble (1899-1977) was the daughter of Charles Auble (1849-1916) and Georgianna Kemp (1868-1952).  The family moved to San Diego from Chicago in about 1911, and resided at 767 14th Street just east of downtown San Diego, and only six blocks south of San Diego High School.

My friend, and San Diego genealogy colleague, Yvette Porter Moore, is also a graduate of San Diego High School, and is current Historian of the SDHS Alumni Association.  When she told me that on Facebook, I asked her if there were any school records, besides Yearbooks, for me, my mother, and my grandparents.  There were!!  Yvette copied them for me and sent them via email.  I was genea-smacked by them.  What treasures.  More records like this one to come!
