Local history etched by floods and drouths [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Local history etched by floods and drouths A one - hundred - degree - plus heat wave baked Highland Park last month for almost a week, making most folks hereabouts forget that it was also one of the wettest Septembers in the community’s history. The heat wave broke an 80- year-old record, and the rainfall (1.26) recorded the fifth highest since records were begun to be kept back in 1896. Two years ago the 1961-62 seasonal downpour hit 22.86 inches of rain, the highest since 1957, but only a drop in the rain barrel compared to the record season 22 years ago. The storm front that hit here in 1940-41 dumped a record of 43 inches or rain on the area. It was the wettest year on record here, according to Mrs. Elizabeth Stevens, official rain tabu- lator for the county flood control district whose records go back to 1896. The second wettest season was 1951-52 when the liquid count mounted to 33.48 inches. Mrs. Stevens, whose home at 6425 Elgin St., is officially known as the Garvanza Stati...

Since 1946 Optimist Club serves needs of community [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Since 1946 Optimist Club serves needs of community In Highland Park, "Optimist” has an extra meaning: cooperation. When there’s something to be done for the community, Optimists join all public - spirited organizations and citizens in integrated effort for the good of all. This has been true since September 14, 1946, when Optimist International conferred charter 520 upon the Optimist Club of Highland Park, Los Angeles, California Organizer of the club was Murray K. Ross who held the vision of dynamic teamwork by men of varied background, a service club to which all business and professional men of good character would be eligible. So successful was he in working with the International’s representative, A. J. Primeaux, that 103 men were inducted at the charter party, of whom 62 were sponsored by Ross personally. Some who know only the name assume that the club is content with sponsoring the boys’ home on North Figueroa St. The truth is that from the start, the club has engaged in num...

School ain't what if used to be (you know it!) [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
School ain't what if used to be (you know it!) By Laura Steele Highland Park schools have changed. In the 1920’s at Buchanan Street School, arithmetic was taught at the blackboard. Teacher carried a heavy ruler and when time-up was called on a given problem, she walked business-like down the length of the blackboard, checked each problem, and indicated if the problem was wrong by giving a smart whack with the ruler on the backs of barelegs. The whacks continued until every student managed to figure out the correct answer. Penalty for getting caught chewing gum, in the 20’s, was: stand one-half hour in front of the class with chewing gum stuck on the end of your nose. Wrigley’s Spearmint gum was new and delicious to many of us who had previously chewed hunks of tar picked up from street paving outfits. In fact, Wrigley’s wealthy family home was quite an impressive tourist walk we took whenever we visited Catalina Island in the summertime. SPELLING BEES At Annandale Boulevard School, ...

Elementary schools keep pace in 60's Keeping pace with the phenomenal growth of the entire Los Angeles school system. Highland Park’s elementary schools have expanded to the point where there are now 13 modem elementary schools in the community, as compared to the one make-shift “grade school” it boasted in 1888. Sidney V. Good, who retired in 1939 from his position as principal of Luther Burbank Junior High School, recalls that in 1888, when he arrived here with his parents from England, the “Garvanza” District had just started a school, located in the old Miller’s Hall at 6311 Pasadena Ave. OLDEST PRIMARY About two years later, a special school building was built at 317 N. Ave. 62. site of the present Garvanza School, which thus bears the distinction of being the oldest primary school in this section of Los Angeles. Good later, in 1912 to be exact, became principal of the Garvanza School, serving in that post until 1927, when he became first principal of the new Luther Burbank Jun...
