Frank Flood (1920-2014) Warren High School Class of 1938

Dragon Yearbook 1938

Frank's nickname was "Frankie", as he signed his name 76 years ago..  He was known for the following qualities:  A silent classmate.... as independent as his birthday -- July 4th....puttering....trustworthy....native simplicity....considerate.

According to the Social Security Administration's Popular Baby Names website, "Frank" was among the top 10 popular names for boys for 43 years -- from 1880 to 1922.  It spent another 25 years in the top 25, from 1923 to 1947. 

I can imagine the silent, puttering, independent Frankie having a fondness for this song, a bit hit for Bing Crosby in early 1938.
