Roscoe Blood Goes to School

These three report cards belong to Grandpa Roscoe when he was 10-11 years old. On this one, it looks like he was teasing his sister Mabel. He penciled in her name instead of his and gave her a very poor grade in deportment!

Excellent deportment! Doing well! "A pleasure to have in class. "

He sure shaped up that arithmetic grade! But look how well he did in most subjects. However, deportment is down from excellent. ummmm

Roscoe was born in December of 1877, so he would have been almost 11 when the first report cards were issued. Perhaps he had a bit of the scamp in him? He always looks so stern in the pictures we have of him.
