Pullman Free School of Manual Training. "1946 Pullman Annual."
Chicago Genealogist. Vol. 39, No. 1 (Fall 2006): 30-32.
Call No. Local History Ref F548.1 .C45 (2nd floor open shelf.)
Graduating class list from 1946, including students' addresses, departments, photo captions, a picture of the school, and a brief write-up about a student and returning World War II survivor, slated to graduate with the '46 class.
NOTE: In the late 1940's, the school was closed and the educational foundation, the George M. Pullman Educational Foundation, was formed. In 1951, the original building became home to the Mendel Catholic High School, an all-male institution. In the 1980's, after renovations, the current name, Gwendolyn Brooks College Prep High School, was adopted, and the school is now co-ed.
