Limited materials, primarily clippings, are included for David Mackenzie, Charles Adams, and Laverne B. Mann, 1910 - 1932. One piece of correspondence is included concerning the resignation of J.M.B. Sill as Superintendent of Detroit Public Schools, 1886. The majority of the files of this series relate to Detroit High School and Central High School and are primarily printed programs, publications, school catalogs. Of importance are the Catalogue of the Teachers and Alumni, 1858 - Jan. 1893; Dedication programs of Central High School, 1897; one hundredth commencement celebration, January, 1921; Central High School Stylus and Centralite which contain histories and pictures of early Detroit high schools. Two notebooks, containing Detroit and Central High Schools' alumni names, year of graduation, year of death, and circumstances of death, particularly during World War I, were kept by Mrs. Bishop as alumni historian. The materials in this series are divided into four sub-series: Harriette Bishop, The Detroit High School, Detroit Public Schools, and Central High School. All materials from Detroit and Central High Schools are included in this sub-series, even though it could not be determined if they were Harriette's or Helen's. Within each sub-series, files are arranged alphabetically by subject and cover the period of 1866 - 1945.
