Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1939 San Diego State College School Yearbook Page for Phi Sigma Nu Sorority

Today's Tuesday's Treasure is the 1939 San Diego State College Del Sudoeste Yearbook for Phi Sigma Nu sorority with a photo of my mother and a picture of her and her mother:

The extracted text is for the lower photo is:


"Feteing their mothers at a mother-daughter tea, we find Carolyn Carter serving her mother, Mrs. Frank H. Carter, Betty Carringer, Mrs. L.L. Carringer, Anna Mae Lewis, Mrs. C.E. Lewis..."

The source citation for this record is:

"U.S. School Yearbooks," indexed database with digital image, Ancestry.com (https://www.ancestry.com : accessed 25 August 2018), California > San Diego > San Diego State College > 1939, Del Sudoeste yearbook, image 41 of 192, Phi Sigma Nu sorority.

This was a surprise find when I noted that Ancestry.com had updated their Yearbook collection, so I put mym other's name in and found pages from this yearbook.  I had seen pages from the 1940 Yearbook before.  The page for this sorority says that Betty Carringer was the Vice-President of the sorority in 1939.   I have never seen the photo at the bottom of the page, and don't have any other photo of my grandmother, Emily (Auble) Carringer ("Mrs. L.L. Carringer) from that time period.  She looks pretty sporty in that hat!

Gay Dill is in the head shot photos in the second row down the page.  She was one of my mother's longtime friends, and would drive her to the sorority meetings in the 1990s.  Since Gay was a Dill, and I have Dills on my father's side, her daughter contacted me several years ago when she was in town, so Linda and I went to La Jolla one evening and met Gay and her daughter several years ago.
