Clinton High students correspond with letters


Herald Staff Report

CLINTON — Clinton High School students in 1968 sent letters to students in the future.

Students in 1989 wrote back to those students of 1968.

Check out the letters in these PDFs. All the letters are currently available at the Clinton County Historical Society.

Also, after years of fading, some are difficult to see. If you are having difficulty viewing the items, download the PDF and highlight the text. That helps create a darker type.

Others are too faint and some students just didn't have great handwriting in the 1960s. Thank goodness for typewriters in the 1980s.
