A History of John Marshall High School & Maplewood Neighborhood

Richard McMahon, 1992


A Little Piece of Ourselves

A History of John Marshall High School & Maplewood Avenue

Richard A McMahon spent over a decade writing his book. Several of his colleagues looked at him quizzically when he informed them that he was writing “a history of John Marshall High School and the old Tenth Ward.” They wondered, as Richard often did, “Why write such a thing in the first place”. The text of this book is divided into two sections. Part One is a fairly thorough history of Kodak/John Marshall High school and is organized chronologically. Part Two deals with the neighborhood and falls far short of being a complete and definitive history.

Topic: John Marshall High School
