That’s the conclusion of a sociology expert who studied the data gathered during a oneyear survey of the local juvenile population and youth facilities.

American Legion Post started here in 22 [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
American Legion Post started here in 22 Highland Park’s American Legion Post 206 was first organized here in 1922, with Harry H. Frank as the first commander, serving in a temporary capacity. Upon receipt of its permanent charter from the California Department of the Legion, Charles E. McDowel was elected commander and served through 1923. Meetings were held in "Carnegie Hall’’ of the old Arroyo Seco branch library. In 1934 the building at 227 N. Ave. 55 was acquired and remodeled, with an assembly room, an auditorium, dance floor and stage. The Legion’s new home was acquired mainly through the sale of newspapers gathered by the Legionnaires since Armistice Day, 1927. It was officially dedicated on Feb. 21, 1935. The members of the post have always taken an active interest in the Emergency Disaster Relief plan, and were ready to render aid, cooperating with the sheriff's office, after the St. Francis Dam disaster. After the earthquake in 1933 several members of both the post and aux...

First Franklin High relied on tax vote; so history repeats in 1963 [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
First Franklin High relied on tax vote; so history repeats in 1963 p, Highland Park residents back in 1914 almost killed any chances of a new high school here, but a lastminute newspaper campaign swung enough votes to gain approval of the school bonds that year and put Franklin High School on the planning boards. The citizens of Northeast LA had just been asked to approve a new power bond issue the same year, and according to the May 9, 1914 issue of the NewsHerald “a reaction among voters is likely to occur, and the vote will be very light.” HUNT FOK SITE However, voters finally came through with an OK for the school bonds, and local school leaders began searching for an appropriate site for the new Highland Park school. Locations were suggested all the way from Avenue 43 to Avenue 60, and including the buildings that once housed Occidental College at Ave. 50 and N. Figueroa St. (now Angelus Chevrolet). Up to 1915, high school pupils in the Highland Park area attended Lincoln High ...

Burbank Junior High celebrates 36th year [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Burbank Junior High celebrates 36th year By Sheryl Fonteno While Highland Park is celebrating its 75th anniversary, the local junior high school is celebrating its 36th anniversary. On Sept 12, 1927, the school, named after the great naturalist Luther Burbank, was opened for the first time, on Annandale Blvd. (now North Figueroa) only to the seventh and eighth grades. Not until the following semester was the ninth grade added. Burbank has had four principals in its history. The first principal was Sydney V. Good, whose son Robert Good is presently on the school staff as a science teacher. Sydney Good was followed by Earl Rosenberry, then by Meldrin Burrill. Carl W. Handy was vice-princi- pal under Burrill, and then became principal in 1959. DEDICATION Since the school was named after a man who did so much in the development of new and beautiful kinds of flowers, masses of flowers were used for the school’s dedication in 1927, which was attended by Mrs. Susan Dorsel, then superintend...

LAPC a miracle bom 60 years ago [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
LAPC a miracle bom 60 years ago Sixty years ago a group of Free Methodist ministers and laymen, desiring educational advantages for their children in a Christian atmosphere, founded Los Angeles Pacific Seminary. The Reverend C. B. Ebey secured from Ralph Rogers a gift of one hundred city lots and a beautiful hillside campus. Friends of th e college and parents of prospective students purchased lots which helped to supply funds for the erection of the administration building. Professor N. J. Davis, the first principal, in his address at the dedication of the new school, declared, “Some events are monumental in their significance. They are mile-stones and mark epochs in the lives of men. We are here to celebrate the birth of an institution, an institution, the sole object of which is the elevation of humanity.” From the beginning the school was beset with financial problems, for in the first report for 1904-05 “the members of the Board of Trustees were gratified over the fact that the...

a message from the Honorary Mayor on the occasion of Highland Park’s Diamond Jubilee Forward Together! Today, the full, stirring story of Highland Park’s historical development, its progress and its bright future is told in this commemorative magazine. As Honorary Mayor of Highland Park, I want to congratulate the people of Highland Park, its leaders and its organizations; for they are the ones who have given shape and purpose to our community and established its special character. Particularly, I want to commend the Breakfast Optimists Club of Highland Park, initiating the idea of an Honorary Mayor for Highland Park. Beginning with Bill Marshall there have been four mayors since the beginning of the tradition, four years ago. Other Mayors have been Sam Bua, Joe Rose and now me. As I see it, the office of Honorary Mayor is a symbol of the unified, village, atmosphere that is part of Highland Park's charm. It is a symbol also of the fact that Highland Park people are going forward to...
Oxy braves depression, fire [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Oxy braves depression , fire Born in the booming 1880’s, blighted by depression and ravaged by fire, Occidental College survives today as one of California’s strongest and most modern institutions. Last year, under the direction of president Arthur G. Coons, Occidental celebrated its 75th anniversary as a school of the liberal arts and sciences, co-educational, independent and nonsectarian, but church-re-lated, offering a practical liberal education in a democratic environment. It was a long, hard struggle to fulfill these goals. Several institutions arose during the real estate boom of 1887 to join Loyola and the University of Southern California in the Southern California academic scene, but only a few became permanent. In the last years of the 1880’s, Occidental, followed by Pomona, Cal Tech and Whittier, entered the competition. EARLY LEADERS One of the men of vision helping to build the future of the area was J. B. Bell, a local rancher and businessman. He saw the impending fai...
