The "Cumtux" was a
small monthly magazine published by the students of Glynn Academy.
It consisted of news, stories, jokes, advertisements, and various writings
of the students of all grades. Volume 1 Number 3 ran much
like a yearbook, with photos of each class and a class list. It is
unknown by me if this was intended to be the school annual, or just part
of the magazine and an annual was also printed. It was suggested by
some, that this may have been the school annual.
After putting No. 1 & 3 online, I came into contact
with Gloria Smith Ramsaur
[Class of 1957], who is a co-chairman for the Glynn Academy Alumni Association's Archives for Glynn Academy.
Their collection consists of many early photos, a few early yearbooks, and
other memorabilia. The G.A. Alumni Association is available for research
requests by contacting co-chairmen Gloria
or Billy Rogers [Class of
1961], either through the school or by contacting them personally. I
will be happy to pass messages on to them for anyone requesting
information. They CAN NOT look up school transcripts, etc. The
research provided by them is mainly historical, and no personal
information on people, living or dead, will be available through them.
Two of these magazines [Vol. 1 Nos. 1 & 3] were graciously loaned to me by
Stafford Burney, whose mother,
Wallie Konetzko, was a senior in the class of '22 at Glynn Academy.
When I arrived at the Glynn Academy Archives on 7 May 2004, someone had
placed Vol. 1 No. 2 in their display case, the missing volume. It
too is merely an editorial magazine with no photos.
