History of Maysville High School

Hi all....I was wanting to ask any MHS alums some history of the old Maysville High School. Basically I was hoping that any information ie class size, sports, principal, superintendent, pictures, anything that you would be willing to divulge to me.

I have been interested in this school system for a good while and was wanting to know some of the history, its administrative staff, its sports, and why it closed.

Start here. A 1908 newspaper article about the laying of the corner stone of the high school building

These photos are of groups participating in the parade in celebration of the corner stone laying

Dear Clap-On

As a former teacher at Maysville Jr./Sr. High, I had the privilege of being the last year book sponsor. Believe me, it was a labor of love for all those involved and I am quite sure there were tears shed as the final copy was sent to the publisher. Before I get too melancholy, let me address some of the questions you asked.
1. Maysville City School System was in existence for 115 years. According to a letter written on March 14, 1914, by A. January Grundy to Professor W.J. Caplinger, the first high school in Maysville was established November 1864 in "Neptune (Fire) Hall" which was located at the corner of Fourth and Market Street. It actually began operation in 1865 and Grundy was the first principal.
2. In 1879, the fire hall building was torn down and a four-room brick building was constructed on the same site and this became the first building actually built specifically for a high school.
3. In 1908, education had taken top priority in Maysville and three new schools were ordered built with the high school given top priority. On May 14, 1908, the basement of the new school was complete. (see pic that Kdown submitted.) It stands were the very first building every constructed in Maysville (formerly Limestone) was built. Simon Kenton directed three of his friends to build a blockhouse where the school now stands.
Much of this information comes from an article published in the May 27, 1991, Commemorative Edition of the Ledger-Independent and the dedication of Mary Margaret Meadows and other staff writers to preserve the history of the Maysville School System. Maysville Bulldog live on!


There were only 10 men that served in the capacity of superintendent. The position was created in 1903. The superintendents were:
1. D.S. Clinger- 1904-1908
2. J.W. Bradner- 1908-1913
3. W. J. Caplinger 1913-1924
4. Prof. Hugh S. Calking 1924-1926
5. J. Howard Payne- 1926-1929
6. Prof. John Shaw- 1929-1941
7. Louis H.C. Laukhuf-1941-1950
8. Ted C. Gilbert-1950-1955
9. Earle D. Jones- 1955-1972
10. Robert L. Biddle- 1972 to 1990

Mr. Biddle is the only one of the superintendents who graduated from MHS, served in the capacity of teacher, assistant principal, principal, and superintendent.

Earle Jones first came to Maysville in 1932 and coached until 1955. He won 537 games, 19 district titles (14 in a row) and coached the winners of the state title in 1947. He also coached runner-up teams in 1938 and 1948. What Adolph Rupp was to UK basketball, Earle Jone was to MHS basketball.
