Whitworth Girls: A Study in Contrasts

"Audrey McCoy - Mansfield, Ohio, 3 in rear L to Right - Nancy Gillard - Imlay City, Michigan, Betty Breen - New Orleans, La., Carolyn Saxon - Jackson, Miss."

"Yvonne Rollins - Houston, Texas, Susana Ayomerick - Camaguery, Cuba, Carolyn Saxon - Jackson, Miss., Nancy Gillard - I[?] City, Mich., Rochelle Barnes - Hugoton, Kansas, Janet Carlson - Moline, Ill., Betty Breen - New Orleans"
The modern day photos are from the 1950s, in a best guess.  The middle photo is marked 1900 and is of the gym class and their instructor.  What a difference a few decades make!  (A Whitworth class actually traveled to Cuba in 1940.  I had suspected these beach photos were taken during that trip, but on closer reading, they were probably from a later Florida excursion.)
