Philly High School Comic Strip Pinback WWII

Submitted to the Fan Museum by Hud Baer


A button issued by Overbrook High School located in Philadelphia.  Each graduating class chose an "unofficial" mascot for their class.  The graduating class of June 1944 chose Snuffy Smith from the comic strip distributed by King Features Syndicate.  This button also has a patriotic theme, as a lot of the buttons from that era did, showing Snuffy as a soldier.  Issued in limited quantities and was available only to members of the graduating class.  Would welcome hearing from anyone with any information about buttons issued by the Philadelphia High Schools.
