Editor’s note: This is the 74th of a series about growing up in Marysville during the late 1930s and the 1940s written by Bill Boyd. Each article is a snapshot of the people, businesses and activities during that era as seen through the eyes of a young boy.
Boyd was born in Marysville in 1932, graduated from Marysville High School in 1950, and lived the greater part of his life here.
When I entered the sixth grade at Marysville West Elementary School in 1943, it was great. I had spent five whole years working my way up. Now here I was, in the sixth grade, sitting at the very top of the elementary school totem pole. It was going to be a really neat year.
