Young Norma Jeane lived v Ana lower on Nebraska Avenue some time after ~ leaving the orphanage in 1937. Ana to be the aunt that Norma Jeane"s legit guardian elegant Goddard, who had actually been a close friend of she mother.
In beforehand 1940, Ana"s health was suffering and also she could no longer treatment for Norma Jeane. Norma Jeane checked out live through Grace, she husband Doc and Doc"s daughter Bebe. She attend Emerson small High School and also graduated ninth grade in June 1941. In September 1941, Norma Jeane and also Bebe enrolled together students at Van Nuys High School.
Grace was still in contact with her previous neighbour Ethel Dougherty and she request if Ethel"s boy Jim can run the girls home from college each night in his car. This result in Norma Jeane and Jim dating.
In early 1942, the Goddards announced the they were moving to West Virginia and also could no take Norma Jeane with them. Norma Jeane returned to Nebraska Avenue v Aunt Ana. This expected her sophomore year was likewise interrupted by the move. Norma Jeane began attending college High college in February 1942.
Since Norma Jeane can not continue to be with Aunt Ana permanently, the only other choice was for her to go back to the orphanage.

Norma Jeane"s classmates to be surprised once she announced the she to be leaving institution in order to get married. It most likely haunted Marilyn her entire life that she did no stay and graduate native high school.

Here is a photo of my 1942 version of the college High college yearbook. This book belonged to one of Norma Jeane"s classmates, Annette Cowgill. I personally think that there is no such point as one of these books that room signed by Norma Jeane. She left school prior to the end of the year once yearbooks are generally distributed. For this reason she would certainly not have actually been there as soon as classmates to be passing them roughly for signatures. Not to cite that she only attended the institution for a pair of months. The is unlikely the she struck up any kind of deep friendships whereby they would have actually tracked her down to sign their books.
This yearbook is in terrific condition. The binding is perfect v no tape. All of the pages are undamaged with no rips or tears. The owner clear took an excellent care that it.
The best component of the publication (next come Norma Jeane"s photo) is the wonderful inscriptions made out to Annette by her classmates. She appeared to be a really popular girl that was both the course secretary and also president.

It is amazing to note the checkmarks next to details classmates. Ns was told the Annette had actually put them following to people she was friends with. A checkmark shows up next to Norma Jeane !!! Annette supplied the very same pen to sign her surname at the front of the book and she also crossed out part boys image of civilization she did not like. Therefore this mirrors that Annette and Norma Jeane were friends!!!!!
