Howe High School
Irvington achieved a dream in 1938 with the arrival of Thomas Carr Howe High School. Mr. Howe, a longtime neighborhood resident, was well known because of his tenure as president of Butler University. The neighborhood honored Howe by naming Irvington's first high school after him. Thousands of eastside residents have attended or graduated from Howe. Pictured here is a homeroom class from 1948. This photo is courtesy of Marty Book Powell.
