“Certificate of Promotion to the High School” – Lawrence Worden, 1929


We found this “Promotion to the High School” – I love that wording! – certificate for Lawrence Worden in a clean out last year, and had hoped to find a relative or descendant of young master Worden or either of the two gentlemen who signed the document, who might want to have the piece.  As the photo above shows, the certificate is signed by Philip Sugg (teacher) and R G Oakes (the Superintendent of Schools), and dated June 1929,

Condition:   It’s in reasonably good shape for an 88 year old document!

Price:  $10.00 (plus 5.5% Maine State Sales tax, of course!)

Last year we posted extensively that it would be free to a family member/descendant of Lawrence Worden (the student) or Philip Sugg (teacher) or R G Oakes (the Superintendent of Schools), but had no takers.  Since I’m a full-time social worker in addition to running this business by myself since my husband died, I really didn’t have time to search any further than I did.

NOTE: Now that we’ve downsized at our main location, our new entrance is at the back of the building!  You’ll see some signs in the windows saying “Heritage Collectibles”, “Retail Shop” and “Welcome”!  If our OPEN flag is up, come on in!  (The door is rather industrial looking, but we’re warm and cozy inside!)

Thank you to everyone who has supported us for the past four years!



In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.

He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.

Follow our blog at https://warrior-project.org, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.

All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps will go to help fund The (Grief) Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.

[Please Note: The (Grief) Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 20o1.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.]
