One other material of note is the Clayton City Schools Pupils Record book, which lists close to 600 students who attended, for however short or long a time, Clayton City Schools for the 1923-1924 school year. This book covers students from primary to high school, noting their name, year, date of birth, age, physical defects, the day they entered school, left school, the reason why they left school, parent, parent’s occupation, local address, and, of course, their grades for the year and if they moved on to the next grade level.
