Christmas, 1940

In 1940, Middleborough High School Latin teacher Herbert Wilber decorated his classroom with greenery over the chalkboard and a small lighted white pine tree set on a table in the corner.  The simple but effective decorations provided a warm and inviting aspect to the otherwise austere classroom.  The room was located on the top floor of Middleborough High School, now the Early Childhood Education Center, on North Main Street.
