Here we have the Manhattan Trade School report card for Juliette Palmer, who attended the school in 1912 and ’13. As you can see, she was born on the Fourth of July -- she's the only student in my report card collection with that distinction. If Juliette were still alive, she'd be turning 116 years old today, which would make her almost half as old as the country! You can see her full student record here.

Happy Independence Day to all, and happy birthday to Juliette.
