1953 Humes High School Yearbook Pages Signed by Elvis Presley

Elvis’ portrait, from his 1953 Humes High School yearbook, shows him to have a split curl in the middle of his forehead, later to become his trademark. He was the first member of his family to graduate high school. Here are examples of yearbook pages that were signed by Elvis:

“Best of luck to a very cute girl. Elvis”

“Best of everything to a swell girl. Elvis”

“Best wishes to a swell girl. Elvis”

“Best of luck to a very pretty girl. Remember me. Elvis Presley”

Elvis Presley’s high school years were spent in Memphis, Tennessee, where he attended L.C. Humes High School. His time there was notably marked by his interest in music. Elvis was an average student academically, but his passion for music was evident even then. He was involved in various musical activities at school, including singing in the school’s talent shows and performing in the annual Humes High Minstrel Show.

It’s said that he received mixed reactions from his peers; some were impressed by his talent while others were not as enthusiastic. However, his passion for music continued to grow during these formative years, setting the stage for his iconic career as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
