This is the 1920 yearbook for Worthington High School. As the title page notes, it was “Published by the Senior Class of the Worthington High School,” and dedicated to Helen Robinson, the school's principal.

The yearbook features individual senior class photos, group photos for grades nine through eleven and portraits of faculty. Sports teams are pictured in group photos.

Also included are photos of Worthington High School, Worthington Grammar School and the Linworth Grammar School. The high school was housed in the Packard Annex, which had been built in 1916 and served as the high school until 1952 when a new school was built to accommodate the post-World War II population boom. Designed by Columbus architect Frank Packard, the Annex is the current site of the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center.

In addition to photos, the yearbook includes a brief history of Worthington schools, poems, summaries of social events and groups and a short section of alumni biographies. The book closes with an advertising section featuring ads by local businesses.
