Paul Briggs (1928-2016) Warren High School Class of 1949

1949 Dragon yearbook
(not 100% sure that this is the right Paul Briggs)

The popularity of 'Paul' as a baby name has been graphed here, so let's take a look at 'Geraldine'.

She was relatively popular from the 1920s through the 1940s.  Not that there's necessarily any direct connection, but her precipitous fall from grace followed the release of this 1970 comedy album by Flip Wilson, which spent 54 weeks on Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.
