“Our City of Corinth, Ky., is still on the improve.  The long distance telephone has been completed through our county.  We are to have an office here that we communicate with neighboring cities, New Orleans, and New York. Poles and six lines have been put up. The line is not yet complete to the south of us. The next thing in the way of improvement is with our Rail road Company.  Electric signals are now being placed along the line, so we are to have no more collisions.  Our school will open September 2nd under the leadership of Prof. A. A. Hibner with a corps of able assistants.” Greensburg [Indiana] Review, September 4, 1895

In 1953, there was published a directory of everyone who had ever graduated from the Corinth High School from 1918 - 1953. It's here. (pdf) We note that while alumni range from Ypsilanti, Michigan, to Florida, to Long Island, to San Francisco, as well as Covington, Newport, Cynthiana, and lots of other places, there is only one - 1 - graduate they didn't know the whereabouts of. 

Imagine that: hundreds and hundreds of grads, dispersed to the far corners of the country, and the community was tight enough that they knew how to contact, regardless of time or distance, over 99‰ of them.

What the hell ever happened to America?
