Millers' Log 1952
Springfield, Springfield High School, 1952. High school yearbook, from Kesey's junior year in school. Inscribed by Kesey to fellow junior Frances McGinnis in red colored pencil: "Fran, I sure will miss your tight sweaters and sexy glances from english. Ken Kesey [with a sketch of a rabbit coming out of a top hat]." In addition to his junior class picture, Kesey is pictured on the football team, the wrestling team (three times), in the National Thespian Society, and as a member of Varsity S (in charge of "keeping order at school sponsored activities and generally upholding the school's reputation"). The senior class size was 194 students, which suggests the total number of copies of the yearbook might have been about twice that, around 400. A couple dozen other inscriptions, some rubbing to the corners of the padded covers; near fine. [#029113] SOLD
