The What-So-Ever Circle [version 1], 1892

Portrait of thirty-one female students, with one white woman in the center, posed in front of the flag pole on the school grounds. The caption identifies them as the student group the What-so-ever Circle, the white woman as Miss Shaffner, and provides a date of October 1892.

The What-So-Evers were a "circle" or a subgroup of the female student group the King's Daughters. Miss Lillie R. Shaffner (or Schaffner) was a teacher at the school in 1892 and was identified in the school newspapers as the leader of the What-So-Evers.
