Lloyd Swanburg in WAS school's first classroom

Lloyd Swanburg and Walt Peik were the first two civilian teachers assigned to teach dependent children on Wakkanai Air Station. They were joined by dependent wives and volunteer servicemen to teach dependents. Rooms in the BOQ, across from the Chapel and Base Theater (later renamed "Richardson Theater"). Here, Lloyd Swanburg is teaching science. The lab table was on wheels and had to be moved if anyone needed to use the bathroom (seen in the background). Photo courtesy of Lloyd Swanburg.
