EAST DETROIT (EASTPOINTE) — On April 22, 1944, Diane Koelzer, seated second from left, was named Queen of Spring, and Harold Moldenhauer, seated second from right, received the title of King of Spring, during a gala occasion held at East Detroit High School.

The contest was sponsored by the Shamrock Club, which presented floral crowns and cash prizes to the couple.

During the coronation, previous King of Spring Joe Mihelick, left, presented Koelzer with flowers while past Queen of Spring Dorothy McMillen passed the honor to Moldenhauer.

East Detroit High School is now called Eastpointe High School.
