Oregon Public Library

The Oregon Public Library is located in Oregon, Illinois, United States, the county seat of Ogle County. The building is a public library that was constructed in 1909. Prior to 1909, Oregon's library was housed in different buildings, none of which were designed to house a library. The library was built using a grant from wealthy philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. The grant was obtained after Oregon's citizens voted to change Oregon's library from a city library to a township library. The building was completed by 1908 but the library did not begin operation until 1909.

The Oregon Library was designed by Chicago architects Pond and Pond. The Ponds were members of the Eagle's Nest Art Colony, founded by Lorado Taft, and their association with Taft and the colony led them to design the library. Their design was influenced by the colony, and a combination of two architectural styles, Classical Revival and the Arts and Crafts movement. The completed library included a second floor art gallery to which members of Eagle's Nest donated works for a permanent collection. The gallery's collection includes 64 paintings and sculptures as well as a Currier and Ives lithograph collection appraised at US$700,000. The Oregon Public Library was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2003, three years later it was included as a contributing property in a historic district that received the National Register designation.

The Age of Innocence

The Age of Innocence is a 1920 novel by American author Edith Wharton. It was her twelfth novel, and was initially serialized in 1920 in four parts, in the magazine Pictorial Review. Later that year, it was released as a book by D. Appleton & Company. It won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, making Wharton the first woman to win the prize. Though the committee had initially agreed to give the award to Sinclair Lewis for Main Street, the judges, in rejecting his book on political grounds, "established Wharton as the American 'First Lady of Letters'". The story is set in the 1870s, in upper-class, "Gilded-Age" New York City. Wharton wrote the book in her 50s, after she had established herself as a strong author, with publishers clamoring for her work.

Waycross High School

Waycross High School was a high school in the city of Waycross, Georgia, United States. In 1993, the Waycross School Board dissolved its charter and was absorbed by the Ware County School System.

The school was located on Ava Street, at the present site of the Central Baptist Church.

The Ava Street Waycross Senior High was started in 1936. It graduated its first class in 1939 and its last in 1966. At midterm of the 1966 school year, the new Waycross High School was completed and moved into during Christmas break. Thus 1967 was the first year at the new Waycross High School, which later became a middle school. In 1993 the Waycross School System was absorbed by the Ware County School system. Waycross graduated its last class in 1994.

Waycross won the Georgia State AA football championship in 1960, 1961, and 1977. The Bulldogs won the AA State Championship in 1970 and the AAA State Championship in 1972. In 1981 they won the Georgia State Class AAA football title.

Waycross High was also built into a track and field powerhouse under the leadership of Coach Chuck McKenny.

The yearbook was named the Turpicone (turpentine-pine cone; Ware County was the largest producer of naval stores in the world).
