WHITNEY.1986 Thronatees-ka Staff joins with the Albany High School student body to commemorate a hundred years of public education in Dougherty County. The desire for some form of public education in Albany resulted in a campaign in 1885 to raise $5,000, the amount considered necessary for the construction of a school building. This campaign was initiated by H. M. McIntosh, the editor of the Albany News and Advertiser, the only newspaper in Albany at that time. $3,500 was raised in a short time, and the City Council appropriated the remaining $1,500 needed for the project. The City Council appointed a commission, composed of L. E. Welch, Sr., T. M. Carter, and H. M. McIntosh, to erect the building.
The lot on the northwest corner of Flint and Madison Streets was purchased from the late Col. Nelson Tift at a price well below the market value. On this site, the new school, named the Albany Academy, was built and opened for the fall term in 1886. The building was two stories in height but none of the second floor was utilized. The entire high school consisted of only one class room. G. J. Orr served as principal of the new school, and S. P. Orr was assistant principal. Miss Belle Bacon was the teacher of the primary grade.
History 3ALMA MATER SONG
Here’s to you, dear Alma Mater, to whom our love is due.
And though we meet all others, our faith is tried and true.
With ot her colors waving, no matter what their sheen,
We love you Alma Mater of the Orange and the Green.
We leave you now, dear Mater, but you forever stay,
Your columns proud and noble halls shall claim our love for aye. Through the years that lie before us mid every festive scene. We’ll still see proudly gleaming here--the Orange and the Grfeen.
So to you dear Alma Mater, we raise our parting song.
This loyal class of 17--your sons and daughters strong.
We give to you all honor--though years may roll between.
Still brightly glow the memories of the Orange and the Green.

0 bout two years later, the Academy was destroyed by a fire of unknown origin. While the school was being rebuilt, classes were held in the Court House.
The rebuilt Academy was an almost exact duplicate of the original. In fact, many bricks from the walls of the first building went into those of the second. However, it was only a few years until the facilities were inadequate for the increased enrollment in the public school system. The rooms on the second floor were all used and an addition was built. Another addition was built a few years later. Finally, in an attempt to keep up with the growing numbers of students, a one-story annex with two rooms for the primary grade was erected east of the main building. The Academy, nevertheless, remained overcrowded until the high school was constructed in 1908.
The principals of the Albany Academy prior to the establishment of the city system of schools were G. J. Orr, Dion C. Sullivan, Z. I. Fitzpatrick, H. W. Jones, E. G. Jones, S. R. deJarnette, J. C. Wardlaw, and A. J. Barwick.

y 1905 there was a growing demand for a city system of public schools. This resulted in the establishment of a city school system by special act of the Legislature in 1906. S. R. deJarnette was elected first superintendent. Shortly after the establishment of the city school system, a high school building was constructed on the corner of Monroe and Society Streets and was named Albany High School. In 1919 the old Albany Academy was again rebuilt and was known as Flint Street Grammar School. Today, the Academy building houses school administration offices.
In 1915, Roland E. Brooks became the superintendent of the city school system. He continued in this position until 1937. In the May 5, 1970 edition of the Albany Herald, Mr. Dan Gibson made the following comment about Mr. Brooks: “When I went on the city board about 1927, R. E. ‘Roland’ Brooks was superintendent of the city schools. He was a learned man, could make a speech on non-controversial matters, and taught a Sunday School Class, whose members thought his messages were wonderful.” The senior class of 1917 was the first to publish an annual. The seniors named their yearbook the Thronateeska and dedicated it to Mary L. Brosnan.PRINCIPALS

“New” High School on Jefferson--1925
8 Historyhen Mrs. Louise Whiting, a 1922 graduate of Albany High School and Albany Herald columnist, was asked how her high school days differed from the present ones, she made the following observations in her column “This ‘n’ That”:
“The boys and girls attended separate classes, I reported, and the teachers came to us, we remained in our classrooms...
Spectators didn’t sit in stands at the football games, but ran up and down the sidelines, cheering wildly or moaning dejectedly.
There was no gymnasium in the high school, basketball practice and games were held at the YMCA (the old Y at the corner of Pine and Jefferson).”
Some additional information concerning the early days of Albany schools was included in an unpublished paper by Mrs. Mabel Hogue, Albany High’s first librarian. In an interview with Mrs. Cyril Elliss, the former Bessie Bruce Harris, who attended Albany schools from the first grade through Albany High School and who also taught in the Albany schools, Mrs. Hogue learned that in the early days teachers were paid $45.00 a month for nine months and that women teachers had to resign if they married.

• rs. Elliss explained that school discipline was strict and the paddle was not spared. As there was no such thing as a lunch room, the students brought their lunches from home and at recess there was a great swapping of lunches. There were no extras but much emphasis was put on reading, writing, and arithmetic with special importance placed on English, which she said was glorified.
But not all was work as the school was sometimes dismissed at an earlier hour for picnics. The students walked over the old bridge to the sand dunes in East Albany, where they took off their shoes and played in the sand and many walked home with their shoes hanging over their shoulders. The schools were also closed for one week in April, so that the students might attend the Chautauqua. Children’s Night was held on Saturday night and many students participated in declamation
and music contests.

William T. McDaniel, a 1934 graduate of Albany High School, was posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross on July 1,1985.

Quill and Scroll-1929
The 1929 AHS Orchestra was under the leadership of Mr. Fred Percilla, a well-known saxophonist of Albany.
w nfortunately, the i new high school on Monroe '$ did not alleviate the crowded ' n conditions for long. According to the Thronateeska, the Class of 1924 had hoped for a new high school f building for four long years. During their freshman year, the Class of ’24 was crowded into three small rooms. They came back the next year as sophomores to oc-, cupy two classrooms cut I ■ from the auditorium. When : they returned as juniors, they found three more classrooms made from the kitchen and the science laboratory, these depart- i . ments having been consigned to the lower regions in the £ basement.
Finally, neither the ingenuity of the faculty nor j the available space could be stretched further, and the little “red school house,”
! fondly termed by the boys “the barn,” was built. So as seniors, the Class of 1924 was separated into the boys’
% high school and the girls’
high school, with the boys in , “the barn” and the girls in | the original building. It was | in 1924 with this division | that the senior class began | to elect both a male and a I female class president. This tradition was continued | through the class of 1975.

P previous to 1924, Mary L. Brosnan affectionately knows as “Miss Mamie,” served as principal of Albany High School. In 1924, she continued as principal of the girls’ high school, and Hugh M. Mills became principal of the boys’ high school.
Miss Mary L. Brosnan worked for 53 years in the local school system, beginning her career as a teacher at Albany Academy in 1892. To honor her memory, one of the elementary schools in Albany was named for her.
In the article by Mr. Dan Gibson, previously quoted, the following is said about Mr. Hugh M. Mills: “One of the most universally loved and admired men to be connected with the local school system was the late H. ‘Hugh’ M. Mills, for whom the Mills Memorial Stadium is named. He was a man who made a deep impression on the schools he served and on anything else he was connected with.”
January 21, 1924, was celebrated as SCHOOL BOND DAY. A parade was held, and students cheerfully marched, bearing expressive posters and giving loyal yells to vote for bonds for the new high school. Even the temperature, which suddenly dropped to zero, could not defeat their enthusiasm. The bonds were carried for a $200,000 city-county joint high school for boys and girls.

JU n 1925, the new high school building was finally completed at 1000 North Jefferson Street. The original high school on North Monroe Street at this time became McIntosh Elementary, named for the late Henry McIntosh. The new school opened with an enrollment of approximately 350 students and with Mr. J. O. Allen as its first principal. That year the Thronateeska had the pictures of all the teachers on one page, as there were only twenty-four teachers. At this time, Albany High School was composed of pupils in the eighth through the eleventh grades. The south end of the building was assigned to the
I boys’ classes and the north end to the girls’ classes. All of the boys came into the building through the south entrance and the girls came in through the north entrance. The teachers and the I visitors came in the front I door!
In 1929, Mrs. Mabel I Hogue came to Albany High I School and ater organized I the first library at the I school. Mrs. Hogue remain-I ed as the Albany High I School librarian until her I retirement in 1970. Mrs. I Rebecca F. Reid replaced Mrs. Hogue as the head librarian at that time and has continued to serve in this position until the present.

In 1937, upon the death of Mr. Brooks, Mr. J. O. Allen, who was then serving as principal of Albany High, became the new superinten-| dent. Mr. Allen continued in I this capacity until 1948 ■ when he became the I superintendent emeritus. He I served in this position until I his death in 1956. B. D. Lee | replaced Mr. Allen as principal of Albany High School.
Since the building on North Jefferson Street was soon too small to house all the students, plans were made for erecting Albany Junior High. In 1938 the new junior high school, located at 518 Society Avenue, was ready for occupancy. H. E. McNabb, who had had an enviable record as head football coach at Albany High School, became Albany Junior High School’s first principal.
During World War II, many changes occurred at Albany High School. Because of the conditions during this period, it was im-possible for the Thronateeska staff to publish a regular yearbook in 1943. Nevertheless, a special memeographed war edition containing student writings and drawings was published in 1943.

rincipal B. D. Lee entered the army in 1§41 and was replaced at Albany High School during the war years by R. E. Beck and J. J. Cordell. When Major Lee returned as principal of Albany High School in September, 1945, he discovered many changes had occurred during his absence. For instance, he found that he was acquainted with only three of the 25 teachers in the school at that time, showing the tremendous turnover of the faculty during the war years. B. D. Lee remained as principal of Albany High School until the spring of 1947.
Previous to 1947, it was possible to complete only eleven grades in the Albany school system. At this time, when a student reached the eighth grade, he was considered a freshman. In 1947, another grade was added at the eighth-grade level, thus making the Albany schools a twelve-grade system with the freshman class beginning in the ninth grade.
When Lee returned from the war, J. J. Cordell, then serving as principal of Albany High School, left Albany and went to Griffin, Georgia. Cordell returned to Albany in 1947 as assistant superintendent and became superintendent of education in 1948. He remained in this position until his retirement in 1972.
History 21HAROLD E. McNABB: An Albany Legend
Over the years, one name has become synonymous with sports not only j at Albany High School but also at every school in Dougherty County. He ! is a legend at Albany High and in Dougherty County. He is Harold Eugene McNabb--Mr. Mac.
Mr. Mac was born in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee in Unicoi I County. After graduating from Carson-Newman College with an out-i standing athletic record and coaching a year at his own high school in Er-i win, Tennessee, he accepted a possition on Lake Russell’s coaching staff j at Mercer University in Macon. He was there for three years and obtained his Master’s Degree while there.
It was then in 1931 that Mr. Mac came to Albany High as head football coach, and his outstanding ability as a coach and leader of young men is indicated in the records he compiled. In his first year, his Albany High team was 7-2, and his last team in 1943 beat Griffin 7-0 in winning the j state title. In his 13 years of coaching, his record was a phenomenal 113 wins, 20 losses, and 6 ties. Six of his teams (1935, ’36, ’38, ’39, ’42, ’43) were in the South Georgia Playoffs, and three of his teams (1939,’42, ’43) made it to the state finals, winning the state championship in 1939 and again in 1943, his last year as head coach.
From high school coach, Mr. Mac moved to junior high principal at Albany Junior High. He then served three and a half years in the Coast Guard as a reserve officer on active duty, and then returned to Albany High. As Dougherty County grew, so did Mr. Mac’s job, and he became the Director of High Schools until his retirement in 1971.
Mr. Mac’s honors and activities are as impressive as his coaching record. Among them are: President, Georgia Education Association: President (organizer and charter member), Georgia Coaches Association; President, 2nd District Georgia High School Association; President, Albany Community Council; Member, National Association of Secondary Schools (Advisory Council, three terms); President (two terms), Georgia High School Principals Association; President (charter member), Albany Executive Club; District Chairman, Chehaw Council Boy Scouts of America; President, Nuclear Advisory Committee, State of Georgia; Member, Georgia Accrediting Commission. But perhaps his most prestigious honor from the work he loved so much was his induction into the Georgia Prep School Hall of Fame and the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame, now called the Georgia Athletic Hall of Fame, in 1957.
Dougherty County gained much from Mr. Mac’s presence here, for he has truly become an Albany legend.

.E. McNabb replaced B. D. Lee as principal of Albany High School in the 1947-48 school year. Paul Robertson succeeded McNabb as principal of Albany Junior High. Mr. McNabb remained at Albany High School until 1970. From 1962-1970 he served as both principal of Albany High and Director of High Schools. He served as Director of High Schools in 1070-1071
In 1951, the city school system and the county school system were merged through a legislative act forming the present Dougherty County School System. When the two systems were combined, R. H. Warren, III was county school superintendent. Mr. J. J. Cordell, Superintendent of the City School System at that time, served as the superintendent of the combined systems.
This legislative act specified that the Board of Education of Dougherty County should consist of seven members who at the time of their appointments had been bona fide residents of Dougherty County for at least four years. Two members were to be appointed by the Board of City Commissioners of the City of Albany; two members to be appointed by the Board of County Commissioners of Dougherty County; two members by the Grand Jury of Dougherty County; and the six members appointed as aforesaid were to elect a seventh member by a majority vote.

hen the Albany High School building on North Jefferson became inadequate for its large number of students, plans were made for a new building to be erected at 801 Residence Avenue. When this building was completed in 1954, the seventh and eighth grades were moved from the original junior high building on Society Street to the old high school building on North Jefferson Street, which became Albany Junior High.
The original junior high building on Society Avenue
became McIntosh Elementary School, as the old McIntosh Elementary School building had been torn down. This building which had been torn down was the original Albany High School built in 1908. After four years, all of the seventh grades were moved back to what had been the first junior high building,
which now became McIntosh Junior High. The first principal of this school was Lonnie Holloway.
Previous to the 1960’s, the schools in Albany were segregated. Albany High School was integrated during the 1964-1965 school year. Six black girls joined the senior class in the fall of

When Mr. McNabb became the full-time Director of High Schools in 1970, he was replaced by Mr. Carl Graydon Pierce as principal of Albany High School. Mr. Pierce had begun his career in the Dougherty County School System as DCT and industrial arts teacher at Albany High School in 1946. When Albany High moved to Residence Avenue, Mr. Pierce branched out into the field of counseling. He later served Albany High School as assistant principal and executive assistant principal before becoming principal. In 1972, Mr. Pierce left Albany High to become Administrative Assistant in charge of Secondary Education. A few years later his title was changed to Assistant Superintendent in charge of Secondary Education. Mr. Pierce continued in this position until his retirement in 1981.

o history of Albany High School would be complete without some information on the history of school athletics. Thanks to Harley Bowers, former sports editor of the Albany Herald, much research had already been completed on Albany High football. According to Mr. Bowers, the Herald did not place as much emphasis on sports during the early years of play as it does today. Consequently, records of games prior to 1919 are incomplete. Following is an excerpt from Mr. Bowers’ article in the November 25, 1957, edition of the Albany Herald:
As near as could be determined, Albany High began playing football in 1913, beating Moultrie, 18-13. This is the only game recorded that year although Charlie Smith, Charles Shackelford, Dave Gortatowsky and J. E. Willis, who were members of Albany’s first team, recall that Columbus was played that year to a tie and was the Indians’first foe...
Albany's first really great team was in 1921 when the Indians lost only to Bain-bridge and later battled the Bearcats to a tie. Moultrie fell in a playoff contest as the Tribesmen won the conference crown. Clifford Cameron and Bill Riley were stars of the 1921 outfit.
It was 1926 before the Tribesmen got I going again, winning nine of 10 games and losing only to LaGrange in the state I ftnals.
Orion Mitchell and H. M. Mills coached that team, which included such stars as Jack Roberts, Roy Gunnels, Billy Pickron and Sam Brown.
The next year Albany posted a 9-1 record, and fielded perhaps the greatest defensive team in the school’s history.
That 1927 team allowed just six points all year but that was enough to give Valdosta a 6-0 victory. Albany wound up the season tied with Valdosta and Thomasville for the conference title, the Indians having whipped Thomasville, 7-0, after which the Bulldogs downed the Wildcats. No playoff was ever held. Roberts and Gunnels were again stand-1922-23 Football Team

, fter faltering to a 6-4 season in
1928, the Indians bounced back to a 10-0-1 mark in 1929, the tie being with Eastman, 7-7. In the final game Albany won over Valdosta when the Wildcats forfeited after protesting the scoring of a tying touchdown by Albany with a minute to play. The extra point was never attempted and the score stood 6-6 when the ’Cats departed.
The 1929 team featured Joe Stephens
iand Captain John Ferguson, and was coached by Sam Burke, now (1957) secretary of the Georgia High School Athletic Association, and B. D. Lee.
The golden era under Harold McNabb started in 1932 with Albany winning nine of 10 games, the lone loss coming in the season’s finale against Valdosta,
21 -0. Billy Smith, Charlie Dews, James Stephens and Dink Gerst were among the standouts.
The Indians did even better in 1933
(sweeping through 10 straight games and allowing only 18 points. The only close contest was a final 7-0 victory over Thomasville. Star players included James Stephens, Jack Riley, Neal Allen, Dennis Freeman and Buford Collins.
Albany slumped a bit to 6-2-1 in 1934, but roared back in 1935 to finish 10-1, the loss coming in a playoff for the SGFA title with Brunswick, 19-14. It was the same story in 1936, a perfect season being marred by a 7-2 playoff loss to Brunswick.
It was in 1936 that Mills Memorial Stadium was dedicated with a 48-0 victory over Sylvester in the season's opener. Clem Rakel and Tommy Yarborough were among the best on this great club.
Albany was unbeaten in 1938 but thrice tied, by Moultrie and Valdosta in scoreless duels, and by Brunswick in another SGFA playoff, also with no score.
Brunswick was allowed to continue in the playoffs, being awarded the right under a method called the Montana System, which saw the teams alternate running the ball for so many downs from a start at midfield. The team in whose ' territory the ball wound up was the loser.
In 1939 the Indians went all the way, winning 13 straight games, including a 27-0 victory over Brunswick in the 1 SGFA playoffs, and a 20-0 triumph over Athens in the state finals.
A few of the members of this great j team were Felix Marbury, Rat Riley, Chaingang Davis, Jimmy Dismuke and j Mutt Manning.
History 37 BHUGH MILLS MEMORIAL STADIUM Historical Sketch
HUGH MILLS MEMORIAL STADIUM began its life under a different name and as a $50,000 project of the Works Project Administration in 1936 as Albany and the rest of the country were climbing out of the throes of the Great Depression.
... The first activity held in the new stadium was a pageant in October, 1936, celebrating the City’s 100th birthday.
... The stadium was originally known as Albany Municipal Stadium but was renamed Hugh Mills Memorial Stadium in 1952 in honor of the “father of Southwest Georgia Sports.” A plaque so honoring Hugh Mills was unveiled at half-time ceremonies of the Albany-Moultrie game on Friday, November 21,1952.
... Hugh Mills came to Albany in 1919 as the football coach at Boy’s High School. He was later principal there until he became Athletic Director at the New Albany High School on North Jefferson Street in 1925. Coach Mills founded the South Georgia Football Conference, that developed into the District High School Association which later was built. Coach Mills retired in 1945 and died February 14,1952, after a long illness.
... Hugh Mills Stadium is actually constructed on the site of a lime sink which forms a natural bowl. This is an excellent example of where builders utilized one of nature’s unique features in a blending of architectural design within a natural setting.
... Final touches were completed on September 22,1936. The original concrete stands on the stadium’s west side were equipped with backless wooden seats for 6,000 people with the scoreboard being erected on the 50 yard line on the east side.
... It was the first lighted field in the city and was said to be one of the first lighted fields in the state. Lighting was provided by fifty-four 1,500 watt lights. A cyclone fence was installed around the rim of the bowl and a hedge was later planted in 1937. The barren playing field was sodded with grass during the summer of 1936 and by September, 1936, according to one newspaper account, was a “carpet of green velvet.”
... The first sports contest held in the stadium was a football game “under the lights” on September 25,1936, which featured Coach Harold McNabb’s Albany Indians versus Coach Tom Porter’s Sylvester Eagles.
... Albany was heavily favored in the game despite Coach McNabb’s bemoanings in fall practice that his club wasn’t rounding into shape. The Indians, more often referred to then as the Braves, outweighed the Eagles 15 pounds a man in the line (155-140).
... Albany took to the field that night sporting new uniforms for the contest; green jerseys, numbered front and back with orange stripes. A crowd of 1,000 was expected that night but over 1,400 came for that first contest which the Albany Indians won, going away with a score of 48-0. The Albany Indians continued to have an excellent season that year, downing Valdosta 7-0, Bainbridge 40-6, Moultrie 20-0, Thomasville 14-0, Tifton 14-0, and Cordele 60-6.
... The official dedication of the stadium was held on Friday, October 2, 1936, when Mercer University met Oglethorpe University. Many speculated that President Franklin D. Roosevelt would be on hand to dedicate the bowl but local Postmaster Gibson emceed the evening. Mercer beat Oglethorpe by a score of 20-6. Actually, the Mercer squad included Billy Smith and Bubba Lawrence, former Albany High players along with Tifton’s Grady Rainey, Bainbridge’s Ed Varner and Fitzgerald’s Wright Bazemore.
... Hugh Mills Memorial Stadium saw year-round use during the period of 1938-48 except for the World War II years of 1942-45. The stadium served as a home of the class D Albany Cardinals baseball team of the Georgia-Florida League. The Albany Cardinals moved from the stadium in 1949 to their new home on Newton Road.
... No significant improvements, other than temporary bleachers being added to the east side, were made to the stadium until 1965. It was not uncommon during the 1950’s to have 8,000-10,000 people in attendance at the games. With the crowds spilling out of the stands for Albany football games, more room was needed.
... Plans were made to add 5,000 permanent seats complete with dressing rooms and a press box on the east side of the field. Work began in 1963 and was completed in time to be used for the September 10, 1965 football game. The addition increased the seating capacity to 11,000. In 1970, the old wooden seats on the west stands were replaced with plastic seats of the type which were originally installed on the east side.
... During 1978-80, further improvements were made to the stadium which included “turtle backing” the field, widening of the usable enclosed area, improving the draining system, installation of a track surface around the field and the construction of a concrete wall around the rim of the bowl.
... Today, the stadium stays busy as the home of four local high school football teams, Albany, Dougherty, Monroe, and Westover. Also, the Stadium is home for the Golden Rams of Albany State College.Extensive renovation of stadium was begun in 1978.
Renovations continued in 1978.
PLAQUE UNVEILED: A large bronze plaque commemorating the late H. M. Mills was unveiled during the half time of the Albany-Moultrie game on Nov. 21, 1953. Participating in the ceremonies were young H. M. Mills III (foreground), namesake and grandson of Mr. Mills, Mrs. Mills, Miss Francis Mills. J. J. Cordell, Superintendent of Education (at microphone) and School Board President E. H. Kalmon (far right). Standing behind H. M. Mills III, is H. E. McNabb, AHS principal. The plaque was dedicated by Dr. Leonard Stephens of the First Baptist Church.
espite a final 8-3-1 record, Albany advanced to the state finals in 1942 before losing to Griffin, 19-6. Regular season losses came at the hands of Tallahassee and Waycross but the Waycross decision was reversed in the SGFA playoffs, 7-0.
The 1943 team duplicated the 1939 outfit's record, going through unbeaten and then whipping Waycross, 6-0, in the SGFA finals, and Griffin, 7-0, in the state playoffs.
Dana McLendon was now coach of the Tribesmen and his stars included B. W. King, Weyman Sellars, Louis Christo and Francis Sutton.
Albany had quite a ball club in 1947 under Bob Sperry but unfortunately Valdosta had a better one, downing the Indians 33-0 during the regular season and 14-7 in a playoff, Albany’s only setbacks in 12 games. Albany’s most one-sided victory came in the Pelham opener, 78-0.
The Tribesmen were potent again in 1951, Bernie Reid’s first year as head coach, sweeping to nine straight victories before Moultrie applied the damper in the last game of the season, 19-6. The Tribesmen two days later lost a heartbreaker to Jordan, 14-13, in the Region 1AA playoffs.
In 1952 the Indians almost went all the way, winning eight of 10 regular season games while losing to might GMA, 7-6, and tying Lanier, 0-0. Albany won over a great Richmond team in the state semifinals, but lost to Murphy in the finals, 13-7.
The 1951 and 1952 teams featured many star players, including Goo-Goo Heidt, Tony Cushenberry, Harold Dean Cook, Tommy Mansfield, Cleve Clark and Hambone Hamilton. The latter pair played in 1951 only. All earned college scholarships.
According to Mr. Bowers, during the years from 1953-57 the Indians managed to keep their heads above water except in 1956 and 1957. The tide, however, began to turn in 1958 with a 8-2-0 record. Some outstanding players for the ’58 season were Billy Ivey and

Tillitski’s ’60 team ended the season 8-2 with such standouts as Jerry Doyal, Jerry Gerst, Bill Sutton, and E. G. Beckwith.
The 1961-65 teams had their ups and downs with 1963 being the only winning season. Under Harold Dean Cook, the 1966 team bounced back with an 8-1-1 season. Standouts were Larry Hall, Steve Hudson, Dick Sceals, and Phil Franklin. The 1967 team, assisted by Bobby Stanford, Larry Hall, and Johnny White, ended the season

From 1968 through 1984, Albany High has not faired so well, with winning seasons only in 1972, 1974, and 1975.
Basketball has always been one of the strong points in the athletic activities of Albany High. Unfortunately, little information was available previous to the 1916-17 season. The 1916-17 team, composed of Dan Moseley, Frank Hardy, Edwin Smith, Walter Wamble, Joe Smith, Holcomb Tarver, John Darbey, Thomas Malone, and Hudson Malone, was led by Coach Kelly. Almost every year during this early period, Albany High had winning seasons.
Coach Harold McNabb advises Felix Marbury.

he 1919-20 team was fortunate to have Mr. Dan Redfearn, a prominent lawyer who had played university basketball and starred on the Albany Y.M.C.A. team, as coach. Albany had some outstanding teams during the 1920’s.
For example, the 1924-25 team won every top honor available at the fourth an- • nual Tournament of the Southwest Georgia Athletic Association, held at the Albany Y.M.C.A. and went ; on to take a fair share of the State Basketball honors.
The Squaws’ basketball team also faired well in competition. For example, in 1929, our championship team, coached by Miss Lucy Mae Bragg, walked away with all honors at the tournament.
The 1934-35 boys’ basketball team was the sixth consecutive team from AHS to go to the state meet in Athens This outstanding team, led by Neal Allen, Toby Royal, Tom Brown,
Dan Royal, Osgood Pearson,
Billy Williams, Harry Davis, and John Beck, and coached by B. D. Lee, returned from Athens as State Basketball Champions for 1935.
The Albany High Squaws had a powerful team during the early 50’s, winning the Georgia State AA Championship for four consecutive years, 1950-1953.

Other sports have played an important part in the athletic program at AHS through the years. Such groups as track and tennis have been around since the early years of Albany High; whereas wrestling was only initiated in 1978-79. History 45CENTENNIAL COVER
The cover for the 1986 Thronateeska was designed and painted by Delores Meldrum. Ms. Meldrum provided the following description of her work:
FRONT COVER: An Indian, the symbol of Albany High School, is pictured as proud and wise, with humor and caring in his weather beaten face showing the scars of experience but looking to the future. In the upper right corner of the picture, emerging from the mists of the past, are old grads of the class of 1917, including Whitfield Gunnells, Hudson Malone, Eleanor Beall, and Arline Diefenderfer.
The first building which served as Albany Academy on the corner of Flint and Madison shows the steeple as it was originally on the building.
Mariwell Blaylock and Don Pye are cheerleaders of 1945. Harold McNabb, principal from 1948 to 1970, is in the center. The old car pictured in 1931 points to the left to the next AHS site on Monroe and Society. The football player is in the classic pose for the camera. Miss AHS of 1984, Rose Marie Norton, is being crowned by Carolyn Jackson, Miss AHS of 1983. Brad Lohmeier is the 1983 graduate. The basketball player is reaching high. The coed is the artist’s daughter, Janifer Meldrum, AHS grad of 1969. The standing Indian is a 10 foot high papier mache creation built by Julian Whiting and other students for a mascot.
In the lower right is the next AHS location on Jefferson Street. Lower center is the present site of AHS on Residence Avenue. Lower left is Hamilton Jordan, graduate of 1962, and next to him is a Thronateeska arrowhead.
BACK COVER: The totem pole, symbol of the continuity of life, was built by Peggy Braun’s art students in 1965. Below the totem pole is a bandsman, Steve Lawrence, performing at the 1983 Homecoming festivities, and the athlete, Cynthia Lane, 1984. Lower left is pictured a majorette of 1963, Marilyn Cook. The violinist is Josette Davis, 1984. Science lab students of 1968 are Frank Walker and Jimmy Hill. Art student of 1966 is Chesley Beden-bough, and 1985 graduate. Rose Dunn, is pictured lower right next to the Thronateeska arrowhead.

students at AHS are generally hardworking and conscientious. When it comes to meeting deadlines, turning in homework, and finishing research papers, we always manage to come through just in the nick of time. No matter what happens though, that unmistakable Indian spirit always shines through.

ashion is one of the many things that students will remember as they look back on their years at A H S. Each generation has a style of its own and many fads to go along with it. Just as we may look back and laugh at the styles of the past, there will be future generations doing exactly the same thing as they examine these pages. While each generation has its own style, Albany High has its own special fashions, too.
Through the halls of our school, one will see things that are different, unique, and totally A H S.

varied. Some of the more memorable dislikes of most students include semester exams, eight o’clock detention hall, cafeteria fish sandwiches, and sweaty P.E. classes. Most of the people at A H S, however, would rather look at the positive side of life. Some of our favorite things to do are jumping the cafeteria wall, abusing the underclassmen during pep rallies, skipping lunch, cutting up in Mrs. Natoli’s class, and comparing car stereos in the parking lot. All of these things, good and bad, contribute to a great year for A H S students.
I Opening 55 jFreshman transportation:
3:30, at last...
ransportation is a part of life at Albany High; you’re lost without it. It can help you form permanent friendships. Think of the many friends you’ve made waiting at the school bus stop or loitering in the AHS parking lot. And a special kind of camaraderie results from walking or bicycling together. Those who drive to school know that cars and motorcycles become an extension of their personalities. And just imagine what a jeep or truck could do for your social standing. Although transportation has changed greatly through the years, one fact remains the same--it’s a necessity that will always, in some shape or form, be around at AHS.

Seniors participate in pep rally.Ibany High has many of the normal school functions-football games, pep rallies, clubs, Homecoming, and various activities that have been around for almost as long as this school has. Other events that have developed through the years include Creative Chiefs Festival, Mr. AHS, Mr. and Miss Thronateeska judging, powder puff football, “Marchin’ Chiefs,” science fair, annual “egg-mo” week, and Party Shak. As we’ve added new activities through the years, we’ve seldom dropped the old ones; therefore, we now have a widely varied curricular and extracurricular program at Albany High School.

eisure time is precious to us at Albany High, and every second of it is usually well spent. When we’re not at school, work, or practice, AHS Indians can be found soaking up some rays, visiting friends, reading a good book, catching up on soaps, or eating something fattening. When AHS students catch spring fever, their favorite remedy is to head towards Panama City Beach. Although it’s sometimes difficult keeping leisure time from interfering with responsibilites, students at Albany High do a • good job of keeping their priorities straight.

and expectations of students are things that will not change drastically from year to year as do fashion, transportation, attitudes, and school functions. No matter what the year is, the aspirations of graduating seniors have the same basic ingredients. Everyone wants to get the most out of life, and attending Albany High School is assurance of keeping a handful of good memories and a spark of hope for the future.
Opening 63Vice President’s Message
I have had a wonderful time serving as your 1985-1986 Student Body Vice President. It has given me great pleasure to have been able to do something for this incredible school and for the great students who go to A.H.S. Thank you for making this school year the best yet!
Thanks again, Brenda Akers
I can't begin to tell you how much fun I’ve had this year serving as Secretary-Treasurer. I would like to thank everybody for their support and help during the year. I wish all the luck in the world to those graduating and I hope to see the rest of y’all next year.
Best wishes, Jill Garrett

The school year has gone by fast and commencement is upon us once again. This has been a prominent year for Albany High. Thanks to you it has been an honor, pleasure, and privilege to serve as your Student Body President. Albany High is what you make of it. We are a school rich in tradition. Be proud to be an Indian.
I wish to you the best of luck and success in the future. You've made it a SENSATIONAL year!
Thank you, Nate Jones
Albany High School’s leaders consist of the President, Vice-President, and Secretary-Treasurer of the Student Council. They are voted into office during the spring of the preceeding year. Each officer must maintain a grade point average of “C" with no “F’s” or “U’s.”
The President must be a rising senior when he is elected into office. His duties consist of presiding over Student Council meetings and school assemblies, representing the school in outside activities, and directing other activities not assigned to another officer.
The Vice-President must be a rising junior at the time of the election. Duties of the Vice-President consist of assisting the President with his duties, acting in the President’s absence, and taking over as President if the office is vacated.
The Secretary-Treasurer may be either a rising senior or junior at the time of the election.
Duties of the Secretary-Treasurer consist of keeping minutes of all meetings, making copies of the minutes available to all homeroom representatives, and handling all financial matters.
Each of these students has done a fine job in his respective office and should be congratulated for his hard work and dedication.

Mr. Robertson was born in Brooklet, Georgia, and attended Brooklet schools.

Graydon Pierce Remembered
When Mr. Carl Graydon Pierce retired on June 30, 1981, his career in education spanned forty-two years. This thirteenth of fifteen children was born and grew up in Woodcliff. Georgia. After completing high school, he chose South Georgia Teachers College in Statesboro (presently Georgia Southern College) to further prepare himself for a career in education. In 1952, after several summers of study, he earned his masters degree in Industrial Education from the University of Missouri in Columbia.
West Bainbridge High School was the site of his “first” teaching assignment, DCT and industrial arts teacher. During his two years at West Bainbridge High, he met Alice Virginia Hill, a fellow teacher, whom he married after moving on to Bainbridge High School. He taught at Bainbridge High for a year before, like so many others, his career was interrupted by three years in the Army Air Force. The end of military service saw Mr. Pierce and his family returning to Bainbridge where he taught for yet another year at Bainbridge High School.
His thirty-five years with the Dougherty County School System began in 1946. Again, it was a “double-duty” position, DCT and industrial arts teacher at Albany High School. He saw the move of this student body from the “old" building on North Jefferson Street to the then "new” building on Residence Avenue. At this point in his career, he branched out into the field of counseling. He later served Albany High School as assistant principal, executive assistant principal, and principal before becoming Administrative Assistant in charge of Secondary Education in 1972. A few years later his title' was changed to Assistant Superintendent in charge of Secondary Education.
Mr. and Mrs. Pierce have one son, Graydon, Jr., and two grandchildren, Christie and Graydon, III.
Since Mr. Pierce's retirement, he has remained quite active, enjoying fishing, gardening, using his industrial arts skills, working in his church, and spending more time with his family. Mr. Pierce has also remained an active supporter of Albany High through the years, attending athletic events and adding his encouragement to both the students and faculty.
Graydon Pierce, former AHS Principal and Assistant Supenntendent. Secondary Edcucation. retired in 1981.
Mr Pierce has enioyed working in his shop during Another favorite pursuit of Mr. Pierce is fishing, retirement.

To Judy Thomas., Albany High Teacher of the Year, teaching is a dedication to the development of the minds and characters of our youth. She believes she must constantly seek ways to upgrade her expertise so that she may present the materials in a way that most nearly coincides with the students' learning levels and styles.

STUDENTS HAVE BUSY SUMMER
Boys’ and Girls’ State
Participating in Boys' and Girls' State is certainly an honor. The criteria is stiff and one must have good grades, two personal references, approval from school, and generally be a top caliber student. Since only a limited number are chosen from this area, the competition is quite stiff.
BOYS' AND GIRLS' STATE PARTICIPANTS: Sitting (L to R): Cary Sell, Chris Cody, and Julie Fowler. Standing (L to R): Ward Butts. Edgar Parker. Joseph Moore, Nadja Packauskas. and Kathy Cheek.

I feel honored having been asked to judge the winners for the Thronateeska contest. However, the girls were all very pretty and I wish I could have made them all a winner.
Many thanJcs for considering me for your judge.
Sincerely,Student Body, Albany High School SOI Residence Avenue Albany, GA 3170S
Dea Student of Albany High School:
Th 4 was a very difficult alignment! After much indecision,
I finally narrowed the field down to ten young men -» but which of these to select as first, second, and third? What a special class this must have been!
I am quite sure that back in 1926 ISIXTy YEARS AGO!) we had matyy very handsome students. In fact I remember some of them ” but you certainly have a bunch!
On rating the final three, I really had a hard time. As far as 1 am concerned, they should all be rated on that "ten” scale with which I'm sure you're more familiar than 1 -- I just know it means "TOPS"!
Anymij, my selections are enclosed with this tetter, and I shall be very interested in seeing the Thronateeska when it appears.
Thank you asking me to participate once more in the activities of my beloved Alma Hater -- Albany High School. 1 only wish “Hr. Mac" could have been here too. He was always so proud' of his students.

Creative ChiefsAnother Successful Festival
The Creative Chiefs Festival, a long-time tradition at AHS, was a great success this year. The week was filled with competition and events. Some of the winners of competitions include: Anne Marie Guido, Essay Contest; Bridgette Route, Spelling Bee; Elsie Lee, Girls' Extemporaneous Speaking; and Cary Sell, Boys' Extemporaneous Speaking.
Two big successes this year were the Book Talks and the Talent Show. Several English classes dressed as characters from books and literary works and visited various classes around the campus. First place in the book talks went to Nancy Dill for “The Tell-Tale Heart," and second place went to Meg Kennedy for Becky Thatcher in Tom Sawyer. The week was finalized with a Talent Show on Friday with nine gifted, but nervous, contestants. Michelle Herrington, a tap dancer, was considered Best of Show, and Patty Fenton, Jill Woodward and Julie Fowler, another tap dancing group, won Most Appealing.

Best Season in Ten Years
Well, what can one say? It’s Albany High’s hundredth anniversary. We can say that we also had a tremendous football team-and it would be the truth! Albany High ended their football season ranked third in Region 1-AAA West, losing only to the Cairo Syrupmakers (number one) and Thomasville Bulldogs (number two). We had a final record of 6-3-1; the best in over ten years. Albany High deservedly defeated traditional rival, Westover (1-AAAA). We tied quad-A Monroe as the season opened. Despairingly, however, we were defeated by quad-A Dougherty Trojans. In triple-A competition, we defeated five opposing teams-Cook County, Early County, Lee County, Worth County, and, finally, Fitzgerald.
Albany High had a remarkable season despite numerous injuries and upsets. However, the 1985 football record was anything but disappointing. We are proud of you, Albany High Indians! Congratulations!

Cheerleaders in action
he Albany High Cheerleaders are elected to promote and support school spirit and to cheer ogr teams to victory. Through the years, cheers and chants have changed, but there are always old favorites such as "Two Bits.”
This year’s squad worked all summer perfecting new routines. After attending camp at Florida State University, they were ready with many new chants and cheers to teach our Indian fans.
The AHS Cheerleaders should be commended for their outstanding efforts in encouraging both the athletic teams and the students.

Football 191The opening of the 1985-1986 basketball season found the Albany High Squaws as a big question mark. The defending Region 1-AAA Champions returned only one starter from a team that had a 22-4 record the previous year and ranked fifth in the State.
Through hard work in the off-season the Squaws began to mold into a finely-tuned basketball team, taking much pride in defense. They opened the season with a big win over Monroe, and continued to roll over their next three opponents before being upset by Lee County. After two more victories, the Squaws were defeated again by nationally-ranked Terrell County and entered the Christmas Tournament with a 6-2 record. The Squaws reeled off two wins over Worth and Dougherty before losing again to Terrell in the tournament finals.
Entering the new year with determination and pride, the Squaws won 11 of their next 12 games to close out the regular season with a 19-4 record.
As the sub-region tournament began, the Squaws chalked up their third consecutive sub-region championship.
193196Going in Style
The Albany Indians' 1985-1986 basketball season should be entitled "Going in Style.” With a senior-dominated team loaded with experience, the Indians decided to go out in style one last time.
The season opened with the Indians playing six of their first eight games on the road. After two big wins over Westover and one over Bainbridge, the Indians found themselves in a very precarious position. That of being with three wins and five losses and entering a very tough Christmas Tournament field. But, the Indians showed their real "style" as they beat Worth County, then upset unbeaten Dougherty to reach the finals. In a very exciting championship game the Indians were beaten by Terrell County on a last second shot. With the Indians winning the runner-up trophy and Keith Pry and Darren Holley both being selected to the All-Tournament Team, the Indians were just letting people know the success they were about to obtain.
The Indians began the New Year with wins over Cook County and arch-rival Monroe. They then proceeded to win the next eight games out of nine, with only a two point loss to Thomasville to blemish their record for 1986. The Indians ended the regular season with a big twenty point win over Lee County, leaving their record at 16-7, and winning the sub-region title. They also ended the season ranked number nine in the state of Georgia. Thanks to the play of seniors Keith Pry, Darren Holley, Darren Shannon, Shawn Jackson, David Morris, and Travis Webb, and to great jobs by juniors Rubin Jordan and P. J. Jackson, the Indians went out in style. Great thanks also go to Coach Roderick for his hard work and dedication throughout this successful year.L-R: Towanda Wright. Ann Schintzius. Claretha Jackson.

Runners Go to State
The 1985-1986 Cross Country season should best be depicted as: The thrill of victory, as the girls' team won the Region 1-AAA championship and the boys' team was Region 1-AAA runner-up. Qualifying both teams for the State Cross Country Meet and a trip to Atlanta. The agony of the feet, as all members spent many lonely miles running up hills, through woods, and down dirt paths to finish in front of a very sparse crowd. But, the success of this season should be measured by the fact that each individual did his or her very best!

216LL THE WAY TO .
Both the Indians and Squaws made their way to State. The Squaws beat Worth County to become the l-AAA West Sub-region Champs. They finished second in region, being defeated by Appling by one point, and were defeated by Washington County at the AAA quarterfinals. The Squaws made history by winning more games in a single season than any previous AHS girls' team.
The Indians defeated Thomasville to become the l-AAA West Sub-region Champs and defeated Camden County to become the Region Champs. At the State quarterfinals, they defeated Waynesboro 55-52. Second ranked Marist defeated Albany 65-63 at the State Semi-finals (Final Four) at Georgia Tech. Albany's season record was 22 wins, 8 losses. This is the first year since 1968 that the Indians have gone this far.
219220 ClubsClubs 221As the editor of the 100th anniversary edition of the Thronateeska this year, I have seen for myself the kind of work that is needed to put out a yearbook. Cooperation from faculty and students is necessary, but the most important factor is hard work from the editors and sponsors. Our literary advisor, Mrs. E. Jones, and our business advisor, Miss M. Hogg, have served as the backbone to our staff this year. Without the talents of both of these outstanding individuals, this annual would not have been possible. Many thanks are due to them for the long hours of labor they have each contributed.
I hope that each of the students will someday take the time to read the copy and appreciate everything that has gone into this book. I feel as though it will serve as the best record of your 1985-86 year.

Yearbook Staff Appreciates Tremendous Community
To preserve the memories of a hundred years of public education in Dougherty County seemed like a worthy undertaking. The enormity of the task did not fully hit us until last spring when we began the actual compilation of the history section. This would certainly have been an impossible endeavor had it not been for the tremendous response from the community to our pleas for help. People came forward to provide information, to donate or loan old yearbooks and pictures, to help identify old photographs, and to supply items that we could not have secured otherwise. The yearbook staff wishes to thank the many persons who have assisted in the production of this special edition of the Thronateeska.

Jill Woodward. 1986 Thronateeska EditorThe Student Council started in 1926-27 with Stephen Hofmayer as president. The Student Council was acknowledged by all to be the most important organization in school life. It was also considered the one that stood behind all others, trying to unite them into an effective whole. The sponsoring teacher of the Student Council was Mr. Allen. Together they took on the job of supporting the Pow-Wow and Annual Staff. Today the Student Council is still living up to its reputation by concerning themselves with obtaining more school spirit and attendance at school functions.The Junior Classical league started in 1937. It had been then and is now considered an honors club. It was formerly Tuo Vadis, Roman Hodierni, and Cur-sus Honorum because they considered Latin the required language for J.C.L. To be a member of J.C.L., one must be currently enrolled in Latin, or have at lease taken two years of it. Their purpose is to develop in its members a keener appreciation of the cultural values of life.

The first Hi-Y club at Albany High School was organized in 1921 by Mr. J. C. Johnson, secretary of the local YMCA. The purpose of the club is the same as that of Epsilon Try-HI-Y. The greatest service task undertaken by the club as a whole was the promotion of a 'Come Clean' campaign in AHS. It lasted from January 24 to the 26th. Over 75% of the student body, as a result, promised themselves that they would from thenceforth come clean physically, mentally, and morally to school. The first officers were as follows: President — Cleo D. Stiles; Vice-President — Julian S. Harris; Secretary — Eddie Mathis; Treasurer — W. G. Menweather. The new name for Hi-Y club.
