Class of 1932.

Our chief source for the 1932 graduation list is an article in the Evening Herald, Provo, Utah, published on Wednesday, June 1, 1932. The sub-headline says, "36 Students to Get Diplomas At Exercises", but only 35 names are listed. Nevertheless, this appears to be a fairly complete list. The 36th diploma may have been that issued to J. J. Keeler, who was a member of the Class of 1931 who did not receive his diploma until 1932, according to Keeler family lore. Another candidate for the missing classmate 36 is Argene Vance.
