Biographical / Historical
Dyer Kelley Elementary School is located in the Arden-Arcade area of Sacramento, California and it is currently part of the
San Juan School District. The school has been in existence since 1949 and was named for retired Arcade School District teachers
Mary Louise Kelly (1871-1959) and Gladys Dyer (1892-1956). The school's name has changed intermittingly from Dyer-Kelly to
Dyer Kelley and back again on a number of occasions, both referring to the same school. The school was previously located
at 2236 Edison Ave, Sacramento CA 95821 and, as of Fall 2019, the school was relocated to a new two-story campus, making it
the first new elementary school built in the San Juan Unified School District since 1992. This collection was donated by Kathy
Stricklin, a local Sacramento historian that works tirelessly to preserve the history of the Arden-Arcade area for generations
Scope and Contents
The photographs in this collection are mainly comprised of class photographs placed within albums, covering the 1970s, 1980s
and early 1990s and the collection includes loose individual class photographs from the late 1980s to early 1990s. The collection
also includes a 1993 Year Book. To preserve original order and provenance, the photos are intact within their original bindings
and loose photographs are rehoused in archival folders. There are two photographs of staff members, the first dated 1980-1981
and the second 1989-1990. The photographs in albums are in their original album bindings with the earliest album from 1972-1973
partly intact, with the back binding missing. The photographs often identify teacher names and in a number of the pages in
the albums handwritten names of students may appear. All photographs in this collection are in color and the 1993 yearbook's
cover is in color while the contents, including photographs, are all in black and white. Loose photographs and yearbook are
in four archival folders.
