Mary Ann Font Schafer (1933-2015) Warren High School Class of 1951

1950 Dragon yearbook

Questions that comes to mind when looking at the above photo:  What was the annual sales of bobby socks during the 1940s and 50s?  What was the peak year?

If this is the house where she grew up, Mary Ann would have attended Home Street Elementary School.

The Social Security Administration's database of Popular Baby Names doesn't allow double-name searches, e.g., Mary Jane, Mary Sue, Mary Lou, Betty Jean, and numerous examples of ____ Ann.   But the graph for 'Maryann' certainly identifies the peak period for these combos.
