Assorted miscellanea from the archives of Eugene L. Conrotto.  Most date to his teaching career—but he had a life both before and after.  Of interest to those interested in his work, or former students of Oakdale High School.  [Updated as we have a chance to digitize items; originals are often mimeographed on colored paper, early photocopies, or other aging materials.]  If anyone is interested in taking position of the originals, please contact us.
