Pupils at the Severy Grammar School in the beginning years of the 20th century included my maternal grandfather Harry Slater (1888-1956), his sister Opal (1890-1973) and brother Pete (1886-1957).* Their first cousin once removed, Denver Tomlinson (1889-1968), was a fellow student and his father, their grand uncle A.R. Tomlinson** (1847-1923) was an officer of the school.
