Piquonian, Volume 3, Number 3, January 1912 [inside the dating is Vol. 3, No. 2, December 1911.  This edition of the Piquonian Quarterly was dedicated to supporting the bond issue to build a new Piqua High School [the third high school] on the block bounded by College St., W. High St., Walker St. and W. Ash St.  The book contains a history and criticism of the first two high schools built on the same property.  It then turns to a discussion of the merits of the proposed new high school.  Since at the time of the printing of the book a final design had not been established, the description was based on articets concept drawings.  The book contains a proposed floor plan.  That plan went through major changes before the building was finally built.  Based on the information in this book and  a well run campaign, the City of Piqua residents voted to build this new, third high school.
