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.
