GetCalhoun.com's most ambitious historical presentation to date,
we make available for the first time, a 1949 Noble Street School
(Located in Calhoun County, AL) project booklet
by then student, Jim Kidd. We know very little about how this booklet came to
be. Mr. Kidd passed away early in 2005 and this booklet was found
among his possessions. If you are interested in old pictures, or
peeking into local history, this booklet contains a treasure trove.
Chances are that you may be related to or know about one or more of
the kids presented in the booklet. The Knockouts of 49 booklet was
scanned page for page and the individuals on the pages were rescanned
and enlarged. References to the pages and people are located on the
sidebar of every page.
Naturally, if you have information that you would like
to share about someone you may know in these pages we would like to
hear from you. We'll be happy to add your comments to the page by way
of a whatever happened to kind of bio. GetCalhoun is interested
in all Calhoun County Alabama history. If you have some, do share it
We hope you enjoy the Knockouts of 49, presented in its
entirety by your friends at GetCalhoun.com.

I especially enjoy "The Knockouts of 49" in Calhoun County, AL. I
found a picture of my brother in the booklet. I was so surprised. Keep
up the great work.
