dc.description b&w photograph
dc.description Very good condition with a little rounding up at the edges and names written in blue ink on photo.
dc.description Group photo of 13 boys in two rows (1 row standing, 1 row sitting on chairs), found on pg. 41 of the 1922 Santamarian yearbook under the uninformative caption "Students '21-22." Bill Finn is in the back row (third from right) and Gerry Hayes (future teacher at Saint Patrick's Boys' High School) is in the front row (third from right). In 2015 J. Mills identified two boys in the back row: William Burns (fourth from left) and Harry Durney (second from right, a future Reverend). Both participated in senior level sports (see pg. 119-120), and Burns was a member of the combined first and second year Arts debating team. Right Rev. William Burns (Arts class of 1923) enjoyed a distinguished career as Vicar General to the diocese's Bishop (exercising executive powers) from ca. 1942-1959. He also served on Saint Mary's Senate and as Vice Chancellor ca. 1951-1959. As of 2017, it is not possible to pinpoint these dates more accurately. Three more boys were recognised from 98.04.0448. The other boys cannot be identified because frustratingly, the 1922 yearbook does not list the boys' names in any photo, nor does it specify the class subject of any group photo. This photo is identical to 98.04.0450.
