1965 Chemistry Class

In 2012, Carolyn Douglas ('63') Larkin found some photographic slides taken by Mr Garvice Douglas in the early 60s. Carolyn had those slides scanned and sent them to Frank Harris ('64). We ran a slide show of them and other pictures of the newly commissioned LoneOakAlumni.Org archival project at the 2012 Lone Oak Community Breakfast and received many great comments. Since there was no identification or dating on the slides Carolyn found, we then set about to identify and date those pictures. Below is one set of images from those slides. Other sets may be found at Teachers Tea, and Chemistry Class of 64.

The newly construction Arts and Science Building was finished in the summer of 1963 and completely opened for all classes in the fall of 1963. Garvis Douglas taught Chemistry and Physics in north east most classroom of the new building. Lots of room and well equipped, the November 6, 1963 Oak-K has an article on the new classroom. The pictures below were taken in the new Chemistry Lab and mostly include some of the Class of 65 which is why we have put them here, but also some of the Class of 66. Most of these pictures would have been taken during the 63-64 school year. Those that include the Class of 66 were probably taken the next year. Chemistry was a sophomore or junior level class depending on your course of study which is why the mixed class groups.
