Long time ago = nonexistent

Dayton, Tennessee, High School, June 1925 (Photo: Smithsonian)

From John F. Ptak of Ptak Science Books (blog/Twitter):

For fun I called the Dayton School Admin asking if any of the orig Dayton HS bldg (Scopes’) existed. “Never had a high school here” said one person. Another came on line and agreed. Nope, no HS. “But John Scopes taught there in that HS” said I. “Oh” she said, “that was in 1925″. Me:”Does that mean it didn’t exist??” She: “That was a long time ago”. That, sir, is delicious.
