Birdville School opened in 1922 on the corner of two dirt roads at the edge of a fallow farm. Over the next 67 years it witnessed, and influenced, the unfolding story of the town that grew up around... More > it, amid flood, brushfire, blizzard, tornado, and earthquake; poverty and prosperity; war, peace, and cold war; and even the collapse of the earth beneath it. It hosted PTA meetings, plays, movies, concerts, basketball tournaments, holiday parties, Scout meetings, polio vaccination clinics, and war-time rationing registrations and scrap-collection drives. Local sand-lot softball, baseball, and football teams competed in the same surrounding fields that swarmed with gleeful children at recess, and that echoed with the roar of low-flying aircrafts snagging mailbags on their tail hooks. By the time classes concluded for the last time in 1989, thousands of children had benefited from the care, instruction, and example of the Birdville School family. This book is a feeble tribute to those who made us who we are.< Less

The noted historian, David McCullough writes, “The past after all is only another name for someone else’s present” . The moment preserved in this faded photograph has been long lost. A sad fact of history, family history in particular, is that when one matures to the point where such matters become important, many of the key figures no longer remain. I spent many fine days with my grandparents, flittering away my childhood, unaware of my own bloodline, and too young to care.< Less
