    Description

    Lee Harvey Oswald Signed Yearbook. The Yellow Jacket/1957, 151 pages, 8" x 11". Arlington Heights High School, Fort Worth, Texas. The yearbook belonged to sophomore Kleber Denny and is signed by Oswald in the middle of the verso of the front free endpaper, "Good Luck,/ To a good friend of mine/ I hope we will meet/ again./ Lee Oswald". The only picture of Oswald is at the top of page 104 and shows a laughing Oswald with female student. The caption reads, "'Bing! You're hypnotized,' says Janet Bolin to Lee Oswald in the old bio lab."

    Before the age of eighteen, Oswald had lived in twenty-two different locations. He was a troubled student and was charged with truancy and ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation in the seventh grade. Oswald enrolled in Arlington Heights High School in September 1956. Later that month, he dropped out. In October, he enlisted in the Marine Corps and by the end of the month had reported for duty in San Diego; he never finished high school. Overall, the book is in fine condition. From the John K. Lattimer Collection.
