29 It is my hope that there will be someone to continue this research, clarify what I have said and rectify any errors I may have put forth, and write the next chapter(s) in the history of St. Xavier and the Long Blue Line. The books and articles already written would be enhanced, and a great service would be provided to both St. Xavier High School and Xavier University, their graduates, students, faculties and friends. As many of you know, the hallways of St. Xavier High School now feature composites of all graduating classes from 1921 to the present. I would love to add composite pictures of the graduating seniors of the Classes of 1916 through 1920, if these composites were taken and are available. If you know someone who has a family member who graduated in these years (even though the graduate himself is probably deceased) another family member might still have a class composite stored in an attic, basement, or among the graduateâ€™s old objefcts. I would love to have the composite picture for a short time so I could scan it. I promise to return it to you quickly and in good shape. I would place the scanned composite in a frame, display it with the pictures already there, and expand the Long Blue Line to one more year. And if you have any other memorabilia of St. Xavier that you no longer desire to keep, the archives at St. Xavier would be pleased to have these objects to properly display them to the students of St. Xavier today.
