Peter Jennings, circa 1955


Peter Jennings went to high school at Lisgar Collegiate Institute in Ottawa, Ontario. As it happens, so did my mom. She dug out her old yearbook — Lisgar 1955 – 56, her first year and his last — and we found his photo in homeroom 12A, at age 16. There was just one; the yearbook photographers obviously were not particularly prescient. Who could be, really, at that point; Jennings dropped out of high school at the end of that year. Proof of authenticity in the small print after the jump.
