Handley High School Yearbook and Class of 1959 Preservation Project

History

The community of Handley, Texas was in the late 1800s as a railroad town. The high school seems to have been divided from the rest of the Handley School around 1911. Fort Worth annexed Handley in 1946, and Handley High School closed in 1959.

Scope and Contents Note

The information in the Handley High School Yearbook and Class of 1959 Preservation Project was compiled by David Eugene McConnell (class of 1959).

The collection includes two Handley High School yearbooks, a Handley High School Class of 1959 Reunion binder, four binders of scanned and printed Handley High School Yearbooks, and an external hard drive and compact discs that contain the contents of the binders. The materials date from 1925-2009 and measure 1.63 linear feet (5 binders, 2 books, and 1 box).

The binders are located in the Local History Collection, and the box containing the compact discs, external drive, and the two original yearbooks are in the Archives. Due to the small size of the collection, the materials are described at the item level.
