Lone Oak High School
Class of 1964 Collection

About This Site

In the 1963-1964 school year, after a 9 year drought, the Journalism Class and the Senior Class gained permission to publish a high school annual due in no small part to the efforts of continuing principal, John Robinson and Journalism/English Teacher Ms Landa Nagel. The new annual continued in the previous tradition and was named "The Flash" to follow the school and team name "Purple Flash."

Other than the first annual in 9 years, the most significant events for this year were the opening of the new science and arts building; and the establishment of a Pep-Club and dedicated cheering section for home games - hey! small steps climb mountains. The new two-story science classroom building had been under construction for two years and replaced the aging single floor Ag Building which had housed the Lone Oak Fire Department for many years. New classrooms were larger and much better equipped. The old science classrooms in the main building we converted to standard classes for math and history.

One of the changes was the moving of the chemistry and physics class room from the old Gym section of the main building to the new science building. At some point before the move, Mr Garvis Douglas took pictures in the old room. Thanks to Carolyn Douglas Larkin, we have those pictures. Enjoy the memories with the menu selection to above.

The Class of 64 consisted of 122 graduating seniors. The annual not only covered the classes from Junior High through Seniors, but the ever expanding curriculum and organizations. The music program now included numerous bands and choirs, and the atheletic program now included varsity baseball. Through the years, the Class of 64 held numerous reunions and we have pictures from a few.

Enjoy the collection for 1964 and if you have addition information that is applicable to the Class of 64, please e-mail the site Webmaster. Please provide contact information so that we may reply.
