HDAMSUN HIGH SCHIIUI.
lt is difficult to set a date for the beginning of Adamson High
School. Perhaps her most exciting history began in 1901 when
the city of Oak Cliff merged its fortunes and educational
system with the City of Dallas. Mr. W. H. Adamson, then super-
intendent of the Oak Cliff Public Schools, became principal of
Oak Cliff High School, a tree-shaded, dignified old red brick
edifice on Tenth Street at Crawford. Rapid growth followed,
and in 1915 -with considerable pride-the students and
faculty began the fall term in a new building at the present
location. By 1920, enlargement was necessary. Our lunch
room, auditorium, and extensions on the north wings were
constructed. gg Q

ln 1935, after thirty-six years of service, the greatly loved
William Hardin Adamson died, and was succeeded by his
friend and former coach, Mr. H. A. Allen. A short time later,
in honor of Mr. Adamson, Oak Cliff High School became W. H.
Adamson High School.
The growing pains suffered for many years recurred in
1939. New wings were added on the east and west, and the
facade was rebuilt.
In 1944, Adamson's reputation is wide. Her ex-students
and ex-faculty members are rendering service all over the
world. Her beloved halls are paced by restless, eager feet.
Surely she will continue for long years as a gleaming symbol
of those characteristics bequeathed to her by the man whose
name she bears-friendship, loyalty, honest, endeavour.
