Marion's First School

Marion's First School

My grandmother, Marion (Lundeen) Walters was a grade school teacher. Much of her teaching career was as a first-grade teacher in Annandale, MN. Early in her career, however, she taught in a one-room school house at Camp Lake School near her home in Albion, Wright Co., MN.

During her first year in 1949, the pastor of the Albion Evangelical Free Church, Rev. Joy Cummings, came to the school with his movie camera to film Marion and her students.

My grandma died before I was born, so this video is very special. What fun to be able to see a little of her playfulness and "the look" I've heard so much about.

A few years ago, my mom had the film digitized. (There is no audio). Enjoy!
