Nostalgia - Have old photos, old newspaper clippings or other memoribilia that you'd like to share with classmates? We'll put it here! Just email Ed Mullen. Thanks to everyone who has sent in items over the years!

And now, a little look back ...


1/18/2017 - I spoke with Scott Creighton the other day and he told me about how his father was always filming people and things with his 8mm camera. One day when the North Campus Chorale was on The Larry Ferrari Show his dad pointed the camera at the TV set and captured a little bit of it. This was before home movie cameras had sound so none of the audio was captured. Still, it's fun to see Larry on the organ, the kids in the group, and Bucky Clark conducting.

This is a large file, about 21 Mb, so hopefully you have a fast internet connection. Creighton Choir Clip

Dave Bennett sent along (March 2015) these photos of Highland Elementary School classes. I'm in the last pic, top row far left. Mr. James Brown's 6th grade class. The first photo is of Miss Walter's 1st grade class. Dave said: "The very homely looking one in the middle is yours truly." He's in the top row with (I think) Kevin Corcoran in front of him.

Ghost Stories Clippings

These pages from the AHS Alumni Association newsletter are large. Dial-up users will need to be patient. I scanned a few pages from issues going back to 1994. Most of it is old news but some of you might never have seen or heard about it. The links below are to jpeg image files. Use your browser "back" button to return here.
