High School Yearbook Captures Leonard Cohen In Menorah & Current Events Clubs

boxeIn 1950, Leonard Cohen was a junior at Westmount High School in Montreal. Maarten Massa alerts us to a small gem on eBay – a copy of the 1950 edition of the school yearbook ($4.950,00), Vox Ducum, Included are photos of Leonard in the Menorah and Current Events Clubs. The yearbook also bears the signature “Leonard Cohen.”

A 1951 Vox Ducum (Leonard’s senior year) was previously on eBay (asking price: USD $3500) excerpts and photos from that yearbook can be viewed at Leonard Cohen As Student.

    The terms “junior” and “senior” etc. for high school and college school years are NEVER used in Montreal, Csnada and are unknown.
