Posted on March 3, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Lexington Fire Chief Earl McDaniel showed Frances Skinner how to put on a gas mask during a Red Cross first aid, accident-prevention and safety class at Harrison School in April 1950. The Lexington school was the second city school to complete the training, which was open to students older than 12. Harrison and Johnson schools received Red Cross certificates for completing the course. Harrison School was at the site of the current Harrison Elementary on Bruce Street. City patrol officer Lloyd Lindsey assisted McDaniel in the class. The students, from left: Carole Lindsey, Louise Hendricks, Patricia Childers, Ermadene Bailey, Mary Jane Thomas, Frances Skinner and Lula Wallace. In the back are Patsy Brown and Wilma Cox.
