Doris Hunt of Baker City submitted this photograph, which includes her father, Charles Rohner at age 11.  This is the same schoolhouse that Doris and her siblings attended and she remembers a big wood stove in the center of the one-room school that was fueled by wood, chopped by the students.  Her teacher, Suzanne McCulley would sometimes bring the makings for stew and let it simmer on the stove all morning.  "Boy were we hungry by the time lunchtime came," she said. Doris attended Wingville School for grades 1 through 8 before transferring to Baker High School.  She graduated from BHS in 1938.
