Mead Master ' s Message t0 Zhe Class of J 95 5 The Year Book of the Class of 1955 of English High School represents the last official document you boys will as pupils leave with your school. It is a legacy, a history of your life at English High; it bears testimony to your many hopes and your accomplishments. It is important to you; it is valuable to your school. You boys of the Class of 1955 are stepping out into a confused world. Leaders of nations are striving to solve the gigantic problems of economics and politics - national and international. They are finding great obstacles which they must face and overcome. They never will without God ' s help. Each of you in his own sphere will face problems, and you will have to solve them. Rest assured that there will be occasions when you will waver; there will be decisions which you will like to reverse. Advice is easy to give, but not so easy to follow. Perhaps it is better that I refrain from giving it. Instead I should like to point out that there is no sub- stitute for conscientious effort and persevering application. A good conscience reveals that a man stands in right with God. Nothing can compare v ith that state of mind. I have faith in you boys of the Class of 1955. If you have faith in your parents, in yourselves, and in God; you must really succeed, and real success is what I wish for each of you. Head Master YEARBOOK STAFF Back row: (left to right) J.

It is with great regret that the Class of 1955 notes the retirement as a member of the English High School faculty, one of its most distinguished alumni. The class, which can never repay him for the splendid example his re- cord affords, extends to him its heart- felt thanks and appreciation. Colonel Meanix was graduated from English High School in 1911, where he was an outstanding athlete. He was a member of the English High School mile relay team that broke the world ' s interscholastic record at Philadelphia in 1911. He held the Regimental shot put record for many years as well as winning numerous championships in the hurdles and shot put. He was a winner of seventeen New England championships and three national championships. He established a world ' s record in the 440 yard hurdles in San Francisco in 1915, While at Harvard he was a member of the relay team that established a new world ' s indoor record. In 1920 he was a member of the United States Olympic team and it was in the same year that in London he broke the British Empire 440 yard hurdle record. Of this record the class is extremely proud. We wish him many more years of good health and prosperity. Class of 1955 OurMcarts, Our Mopes It has been over a dozen decades since America ' s first high school was established — (Fro Commonwealth). And ever since that first group of graduates — ■ seven in number — left their secondary studies, they have been followed by many, many more like themselves. Today we see deeds of our Alma Mater spread to every field of life. Fame of the English High School of Boston and the character of her sons have been scattered like the mustard seed and carried like the ocean ' s minerals through- out the world by one power, " Achievement to match the tradition of our school. " It is time for us; and yet a while we pause. What joys and warmth we have found inside these high school walls of bluel We wish to add abundantly in number and in prestige to the oldest high school alumni association in the United States. Though we are young and have as yet no worldly prominence to show, we present to you our best tal- ents — that which we have thus far accomplished in our community. In the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and fifty-five, leaving our school is the breaking of a silken thread that we hove woven with a high degree of care. For most of us four years work is not easily left behind, but because we have in this our senior year, learned that we are now to be part of another great tradition, we do so willingly, and with the thought that we the class of 1955 might by our future accomplishment add to the luster and glory of our beloved school. Already we have set a precedent here at the Avenue Louis Pasteur, for we have been chosen as the class to set the example of a new and strong English High. Let us recognize this as an honor and a challenge, and let us successfully accomplish and surpass the ambitions of all the other preceeding Alumni, so that we, individually ccnd as a class, might accomplish " Achievement to match the tradition of our school! " HENRY F. MOODY Class President The Fenway - A ra At the beginning of our senior year we moved into another and newer building. This school building, formerly occupied by the High School of Com- merce, is located on Avenue Louis Pasteur, directly opposite the Boston Latin School Building. This is the first general high school in the United States, established in the year 1821. The courses here are: - (1) college preparatory, (2) Technology prepara- tory, (3) Business education, and (4) general. Boys from every section of the city attend this school. A large percentage of boys go to college. Members of the graduating class entered many different higher institutions of learning. The English High School Alumni Association is the oldest organization of its kind in the United States, established one hundred years ago. Many scholarships are offered and no able boy is without opportunities to advance his education. The school is proud of its athletic traditions, and has been consistently a leader in this field. The track, football, baseball, basketball and hockey teams are well coached and are uniformly among the leading teams of the city. For several years our final football game has been played in the Harvard Stadium. Military Drill started here in 1864. In recent years, in addition to Military Drill there is training in Physical Education, Military Science and Health Education. All instructors are veterans. Our musical units — the Band, Orchestra, Drum Corps and Glee Club are high grade organizations. For several years our military Band has been oustanding. We have a full time registered school nurse, and an excellent hospital room, well equipped to safeguard the health of every student. In our school library there are over 5,000 carefully selected volumes. We have a full time trained librarian in charge. These are only a few of the features of the school, which we now enjoy and which we leave to the classes that are to follow in the hope and belief that they will set up and attain even higher standards of honor and achieve- ment. E ditorial . . . Fellow classmates: Another station of our life journey is officially at an end, and the next stage, by far the most thrilling and most fruitful, is begun. To some of us it means college and higher institutions of learning; to others, a direct road into the cold, grim world. We are about to end our close asso- ciations which we have made during these past four years. The crossroads have been reached. Each one of us must choose his own way. We might very well be compared to young children who are being set on their own legs for the first time. It is now that all our friends and relatives are giving us choice bits of ad- vice to aid us in our journey through life. With all these parcels of advice thus offered, it is hard for us to single out any particular rule by which to govern ourselves. Let us make an attempt, at least, to hold in mind a quota- tion from William Shakespeare, one that applied not only to his day, but for all time: " To thine own self be true, and it must follow as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man. " If we allow ourselves to be gov- erned by this rule throughout our lives, we cannot help but in our own way gain fame and fortune. Truth and honesty do not go unrewarded, no, not even in these trying days into which we are now advancing. We could adopt no motto more noble than this rule of Shakespeare ' s. Let us bear in our minds that truth is the basis of honor. If we follow through life bearing this motto ever before our eyes, we cannot but be a credit not only to our school, our friends, our families and our country but, most of all, ourselves.

Semr Class History FRESHMAN YEAR A Thursday that will live in infamy saw us, a wild mob, advance on Montgomery Manor eager to burst our bonds of ignorance and ab- sorb the wisdom of ages. After the distribution of " AW " cards we took our loyalty oaths, which were administered by the Supreme Or- der of the Young Republican Club of E.H.S. Charter members, — ■ Messrs. Sheehan, Ken- ney and Phelps, Murphy and Murphy, Evans and Evans — to wit: we do hereby solemnly vow that we are not now nor have we ever been admirers of Franklin Delano Roose- velt Mil Those of us that survived this experi- ence were then issued locker keys together with rubber boots, raincoats and life jackets. For- tunately all we needed to get to our lockers were the rubber boots — September was a low tide month. As we became acquainted with our new home, we began to appreciate it. Football season ended in triumph as we pulverized Latin 20 - 0. Our Relay Team won the American Championship in the two-mile relay races at Pennsylvania Athletic Carnival. In Cross Country E.H.S. won every meet it entered — city, state, and New England. Achievements such as these made us proud to be a part of this great school. As we con- cluded our first year we lost that " starry-eyed freshman look " . Our faces radiated with that typical scholarly glow characteristic of the upperclassmen. SOPHOMORE YEAR As we approached Montgomery Manor once again, we stopped for a moment to reflect up- on our heritage. We had heard that our Alma Mater had been founded in 1821. After taking another glance we were ready to believe this! But events of this year only intensified our appreciation of E.H.S. General Mathew B. Ridgeway was appointed Chief of Staff of the United States Army becoming our most illust- rious alumnus. This year the class of 1913 had its fortieth annual reunion. In attendance were two distinguished military men, formerly of E.H.S.: Chief of Finance of the United States Army, Major General Bickford E. Sawyer and Colonel Joseph M. Driscoll on the E.H.S. faculty since 1923 and veteran of two World Wars. This year we also became more familiarized with our cafeteria. Its rare delicacies intrigued and fascinated us, but it soon lost its appeal when we found the same food was available in the chemistry lab. Our Basketball team won the City Championship and then took Chelsea in the Tech Tourney. We lost to Mission by one heartbreaking point. Finally we settled down to our studies, resolved to let the faculty guide us in our preparation for adult society. Even the upper classmen were eager to help by sharing the wisdom they had had stuffed down their throats. At any dark corner we were likely to be approached by a senior offer- ing us at cut-rate prices the latest edition of " What Every English High School Lad Should Know! " Here we found many tips and sugges- tions which aided us in the struggle typical of every educational institution, — viz: who will crack up first, the student or the teacher. As our second year ended, we saw victory in our sights, JUNIOR YEAR After our summer vacation, which we all thought was too long, we returned to E.H.S. We were glad to find things just as we had left them. Even the air had last year ' s aroma, but we were getting smarter and now had gas masks. Then our warm and friendly smiles were met with the blood-thirsty sneers of a desperate faculty. It was evident that they would go to any lengths to educate us. A truce was agreed on and we promised to do our homework. The Phs. Ed. Dept. was de- lighted with its track men. They had plenty of practice in perfecting the one-hundred yard dash going from the smoking lounge to their next period. (So that ' s why they were running in the corridors.) But we ' ll never forget th is year ' s Basketball team. Mr. Sullivan retired as coach in a blaze of glory. Sparked by Charley Foley and Bob MacGillivary we won the city championship undefeated. In the Tech Tour- ney we beat New Bedford and Durfee, but lost the finals to Brockton by a disputed Two point decision. But even in defeat this team showed those championship qualities, characteristic of the E.H.S. Mentally we all cheered the Base- ball team on, as it captured second place with an 1 1 and 3 record for the season. Then our ears were turned to talk of a new E.H.S. They had been talking about this for over fifty years, but it now became reality. We were rather sorry to leave, old Montgom- ery Manor; we were just getting used to the wild life that abounded there. As books be- gan to be collected we didn ' t mind too- much the idea of moving. There was even talk of liberalizing the curriculum and entrance re- quirements. Hopefully we looked forward to our next year, but were saddened by the news of the retirement of our most beloved Head- master WALTER F. DOWNEY. SENIOR YEAR September found us at the new English High in the Fenway. We took over the Commerce High Building, and were enthusiastic over the intellectual atmosphere which greeted us. With Girls ' Latin just beyond the horizon we flocked to the school commissary to purchase our ties and telescopes. Our new headmaster M. Henry Mclnerney was especially success- ful in his first year at E.H.S. As the year pro- gressed we were certain that Mr. Mclnerney would elevate E.H.S. to even higher renown and success. After a difficult struggle Mr. Duffy " cracked the code, " and lockers were issued. Before the first week was over, we found ourselves in debt to the Keelon-Frazier Fund. We were told payment would be ac- cepted in monthly installments over a ten month period. Thanks to the fine coaching of Mr. Stewart our Football Team played fine ball. Things were quiet at E.H.S. in those days, when our first chemistry bi-monthly hit us. Murmurs were heard and dissension spread as insult was added to injury. With cold-blooded and unmerciful premeditation the English and Mathematics departments united in a joint effort to establish beyond the shadow of a doubt the fact of our ignorance. But we held firm to our principles as we mobilized for ac- tion and organized. We probably will go down in educational history for our platform demanded no home lessons, no tests, no cut slips, and no report cards! But alas, we had to abandon our plan for educational reform. As we prepared for those college boards we made a determined effort to absorb some more of the wisdom of the ages. The career guid- ance program really helped us to plan our future. Representatives from colleges and the professional and business world aided us in determining our future vocation. The most important idea they wanted to get across to us was that the only successful man is the one who enjoys his work. The events most an- ticipated now were the Prize Drill and the Schoolboy Parade. June brought us our graduating diplomas. We the class of ' 55, the first to graduate from the new EngUsh High School, were now to take our place in society. We looked for- ward to new horizons in college, business, or the armed forces. After four years at E.H.S. we were ready and eager to follow in the traditional footsteps of our fellow alumni in doing our best for our school and country.

THE RECORD STAFF THE RECORD BUSINESS STAFF LE CERCLE FRANCAIS THE MUSIC APPRECIATION CLUB Room Athletic Captains Office Service Staff GUIDANCE COUNSEL Career Quidame There has been established for some years the practice of having the student directly contacted by men prominent in their respective fields. In this way the boys who are in the process of formulating their plans for the future are given a realistic and practical survey of the requirements and op- portunities in each particular field. The need for intensive work in this field has been demonstrated. The colleges have been quick to recognize and acknowledge the more specific approach of the entering students to their careers. This has been brought about in a great degree by the guidance programs such as ours. They have given many boys a better realization of the meaning and purposes of their school v ork. This has resulted in a greater interest and better results. Since 1952 when this career guidance program was inaugurated, twenty- four different colleges and universities have contacted our senior class through their representatives. They have cleared up misgivings, and doubts that boys might have had. Now a boy sees more clearly what he must do in order to be properly prepared. The colleges in turn will receive more purpose- ful students. The. fields covered during the spring term of the senior year were many and varied. Electronics, General Office and Secretarial, Medicine, Mechanics, Trade and Skills, Accounting, Engineering, and Law. Undoubtedly this field v ill be widened to the greater benefit of everyone.

Aided by his two able assistants, Mr. Fred Gillis and Mr. Joseph King, Mr. Stewart led the boys from their new home on Avenue Louis Pasteur to a second place in the city conference. The season opened well for us. On a warm day „ , , and a fast field the team showed great promise for a Paul McDonough , , n i j • ± f-. ■ successful season with a well-played victory over a favored Technical High squad. Our lone touchdown came on a pitchout from quarterback Jerry D ' Avolio to end Paul McDonough. End Bob Boyle added to the total with a safety. English High next journeyed to Groton, Mass. and trounced their op- ponent Groton School 24 - 7 in this fine traditional contest. Ferd. Beckette was the pacemaker in this game. We moved steadily ahead at the expense of Roxbury Memorial defeating them 38 - 6. Beckette, Lyons, Chaban, and Allen provided the scoring punch in that contest. Trade then followed and offered as little opposition as Beck- ette, Chaban, Moody, W. Petersen, D ' Avolio and McDonough scored to bring the total to a 34 - 6 victory. 1st. row: G. D ' Avolio, N. Chaban, A. McGaffigan, R. Lundy, W. Petersen, P. McDonough, (Capt.) L. Aiello, R. Boyle, W. Dorgan, F. Beckette, J. Allen. 2nd. row: Ass ' t. Coach F. Gillis, J. Gorman, R. O ' Donnell, J. Greco, M.

In the following game Dorchester proved a rugged opponent but a D ' Avolio to Beckette pass and two fine scores by Johnny Allen gave English a 19 - 7 win for their fourth straight conference victory. In a non-conference game English struggled to a 18 - 13 victory over the Eaglets of B.C. High in a tight game when McDonough, Beckette, and Allen pushed across scores. The field was slow and an ominous threat of rain prevailed on the day when a heartbreaking 6 - 6 tie with East Boston spoiled our victorious record to date. Ferd. Beckette maintained his scoring pace, bulling his way into the end zone for the only Blue and Blue score. Finally on Thanksgiving Day our traditional game with Public Latin was contested. The game, played in the impressive setting of the Harvard Stadium saw the city championship torn from the grasp of English High. Our team struggled valiantly in a game which provided many thrills. A run into the end zone by Norma Chaban gave us our only score with John Allen adding the point after. The final score 20 - 7. Thus the season ended with victory predominantly ours. It was a typical English High team of which we are proud. Next year as shiny new alumni we shall be cheering for another fine team under the spirited leadership of its co-captains Jerry D ' Avolio and John Lyon and guidance of its able coaches.

The Blue and Blue tracksters, of Avenue Louis Pasteur, led by Co-Captains Charles Henderson and Murray Watt, compiled an amazing Cross-Country track record this past season. The Double Blue did not lose one of their seven important meets, including the battle for the city championship, the Reggies, or the State meet. English started off on their right foot by whipping Trade and Memorial decisively in their first track meet on October 7, 1954. Things became even brighter when on Oc- tober 12th at a quadrangular meet English was again victorious. Now on October 21 came the City meet, where English High ' s boys overpowered all comers. English, the Greater Boston City Champs, now were prepared for the November 1st Reg- gies. Properly confident our runners topped all of the other schools. The next meeting was the important State Championship. Our hats are off in tribute to the seven fellows who ran B.C. off the track to take the State meet — Charles Henderson, Murray Watt, Bobby Porro and John Hay- wood — finishing well in the vanguard. English had the honor of being one of the three schools chosen from Mass. to represent the Bay State in Ihe New England Cross Country Championship held right here in Bos- ton at the Franklin Park Golf Course. The re- sults read: — • 1. Manchester of Connecticut 2. Lee Academy of Maine 3. Beverly High of Mass. 4. English High of Boston, Mass. Our hopes and best wishes for another great season go to Thomas Porro, captain-elect of next year ' s squad. With a very successful record compiled by the fleet-footed Blue and Blue, Mr. Clifford Ronan has high hopes for his harriers next season. TRACK - INDOOR Although Coach Ronan had hoped for better results in the State meet, he had to be satisfied with fifth place. Bob Kelleher and Tom Porro were the only boys to score for us, as they took third and fourth respectively in the 1000-yard run. Moreover third place was the best the Blue and Blue could do in the Reggies, with Tech winning the title, and Latin nosing us out. Tom Porro, a junior, should be congratulated on his fine run, as he ran a strong front race to break the record in the class B 88G-yard run in the Regi- mental Championships, bringing the mark down by nearly three seconds to 2.08.9. The season was generally satisfactory. Coach Ronan anticipates o return to our former championship strength. LETTERMEN Ferd Beckette (Capt.)

Kenny MacLeay and Henry Moody were the two repeaters who hoped to spark this year ' s team. Every team in the league was out to stop English in its bid for a third straight city championship. Dorchester High eked by the double Blue 46-45 in the opening game of the year, but English proved that with a little more experience they were going to be rough on all opposition. Led by Kenny MacLeay and Dave Hill, the Blue and Blue racked up three straight wins over Trade, B. C. High, and Technical respectively. Suddenly our luck seemed to run out as we lost to Memorial and Latin in the closing minutes of each game. The second round started just as the first one did, losing to Dorchester, and then beating Trade, B. C. High, and Technical. Although Bryant Rollins, Kenny MacLeay and Dick O ' Brien were outstanding in the last two games against Memorial and Latin, the team couldn ' t quite gather enough points to win either game.

Led by Captain Bob Boyle, the Blue and Blue skated to one of their finest seasons in the last few years. The team won 7, lost 2, and tied 2. The first line composed of seniors Greco and Boyle, and junior Jerry D ' Avolio was chosen as a unit to the Boston City All-Stars ' squad. Also chosen as an all-star was defenseman George Dick. Teaming with Dick on defense was senior Brendon Harrington. The net was guarded by senior Don Corrigan. The Blue won their first five games including a 6-1 victory over Lawrence Academy at Lawrence in which Jerry D ' Avolio netted 4 goals. Next, the Blue met Latin with first place at stake. In a game which can best be described as fast and rugged, Latin and English played to a 5 to 5 tie. Jerry D ' Avolio tallied all five goals for the Blue and Blue. The Blue won their next two games and then played to a 2-2 tie with Technical. On Washington ' s birthday, English and Latin met with the City Championship at stake. Latin school emerged with the coveted trophy when Grant scored at 8:56 of the final period to break a 1-1 deadlock. Scoring for the Blue was defenseman George Dick. In the Met. tourney, Swampscott defeated the Blue and Blue 3-2. Johnny Greco notched both goals for English, each time tying the game. Swampscott notched the clincher with seventeen seconds to be played. Johnny Greco valiantly trying to tie the score, crashed in to the goal suffering a fractured rib from which he has fully recovered. The class of ' 55 wishes to salute their hockey team for a job well done.

The squad although not particularly large was strong and cap- able. Henry Moody had been elected captain and his leadership has been gratifying to both the coaches and players. The season so far has been highly successful. All games scheduled up to May 13 have been won handily, some by overwhelming scores. The outlook for a convincing City Championship is more than good. The sound pitching of Davey Hill and Joe Carey have done much to bring victory to the school. The consistent hitting of the team, particularly that of Fred Bechette and Bob LeBlanc has given the coaches every reason to believe that English High School will be represented in championship play by one of the best nines that has ever represented The Blue and Blue. Most of the team will be graduated this spring, we are proud of their achievements and hope that Mr. Stewart and his assistants will have equally good fortune in the coming years.

Shaw Ambition: Electronics Engi- neer College: Northeastern Hobbies: Hunting O what a blue worldl That blue moon hanging on that blue tree top outside as we sit down to write these final blue notes. Enough of that moaning now! Let ' s get started, shall we fellows? RALPH JENANYAN showed what a wild range of vocabulary he has when he re- marked, " 1 wonder what the weather predica- ment IS for today. " . . . JOHN CARLTON makes no secret of the fact that he is a worldly man, bigger at the equator than at the poles . . . We hear that BILL KENNEY originated the " Professional Father " program. We hope It works, Bill . . . SAM TRACHTENBERG is reportedly holding classes for educated squir- rels on the Common from 3 to 6 p.m. — He extends an invitation to MR. KENNEY . . . RON JORDAN and LEO HANRAHAN have learned so much M7 since September, they ' ve joined the Air Force . . . BREARE, on the other hand, became so dizzy that he piloted his plane from " A " to " sea " — Oh well, his ambition is the army anyhow . . . NICK DE- RANY insists that " stuff " (H2S04) is only water. Pass the pitchfork ... MR. ATWOOD gave a simple rule for making an alarm clock: Place a bottle with an equal volume of hydro- gen and chlorine on a window sill — It will explode when the sun hits it. — Question from ALAN BASS, " What happens when it rains? " Actually, MR. KEELON, the M44 class isn ' t stupid; they just don ' t have any blackboards to erase. . . . LARRY GAMBINO and SENAT- OR FOX seem to differ on their intellectual voting standards. Could it be that both of them are politicians? ... By the way MR. QUINN welcomes any opinion on lowering the voting age to eighteen — you can either write ten thousand wdrcls or one hundred pages about it. — We know DAVE GEDNEY would love to. . . . AL BOUFFARD wants more " B " schedules. He just can ' t do all his homework between 9:00 and 9:00 A. M. It is expected that he won ' t have that trouble in college? . . . CHARLIE BUTTERFIELD must have a spiteful relative. Those ties are out of this world — just where they should be. . . . PROFESSOR LANZA lost his way back after a midnight rev- elry in Revere. — One of his occasional spells under the influence of women. . . . HAROLD " Handsome " BRETNER was caught again to- day — discussing his conquesta out East Bos- ton way. We think he ' s cutting in on BILL TURNBULL ' S region. . . . PHIL HENKIN is still trying for the basketball team. Maybe next year Phil, — they haven ' t invented basketball stilts yet. . . . CHARLIE KOINES is often mo- lested for romantic exploitations by MR. DE- VOIR ' S witty remarks. What these reporters want to knov is how the latter gentleman gets to know them. . . . VELLA: " Can you tell me how to get to M.I.T.? " RUGGERIO: Gee I think that ' s part of the M.T.A. " DOC FRAZIER must be working on the col- lege boards — how he lures us with his gen- erous offer of $12 admission for seven hours of entertainment on March 12. . . . DEN FRANK- LIN says his distant relative Benjamin got the Daylight Savings Time idea from an Indian who cut off one end of his blanket and sewed it on the other end to make it longer. . . . Those lab assistants: POLOSE, POTTLE, DUBOW CO. had better not fool with the bottles in the lab — BEAN made zinc sulfate from the action of copper on H2S04 the other day. . . . MO- DICA certainly bears the distinction of Einstein II. Besides his ambition in the field of E -Mc, even his hair resembles that of the great master. FRED BECKETTE, accepting his football letter, deeply expressed his gratitude, " I thank you from the bottom of my heart. " Those of you who have been dodging JOHN PARIS Co. had better look for cover again — they ' re collecting alumni dues now. JOHN GROSSMAN is tackling hard at the chemistry problems too, Nice work John. Capitol announced today that ED SICARl has signed a ten year contract to sing with Sophie Tucker. — All kidding aside, we pre- dict a great future for this boy. GEORGE MURPHY always boasted about the skillful maneuvers of his sophomore until one of his platoons did a right flank while the others did a column right. We understand MR. ECCLES is raising bookworms in the basement. AL KLEIN has al- ready ordered one thousand (roasted), as pro- visions for his anticipated trip to the South Seas. We would like to know why TERRY KOEN brings a kettle of hot water to the library every day. Is it for a hot water bag or a tea bag? News comes to us that HENRY MOODY is going to start his own disc jockey show — his first guest star to be Talo-o-o-la Bankhead. We also hear he has offered HERB PRILUCK a job as band leader. Headquarters announced today that " DU- CHIE " WARD has relinquished his position as teacher ' s bus-boy to GEORGE MORLAND. Well fellows, it looks like we ' ve come to the end of our journey and the world looks bluer than when we started. It has been four won- derful years that we ' ve had together. Before we close we would like to pay tribute to BILL McDONOUGH and his great football squad, to our hard working cheerleaders, to BOB BOYLE and an anticipated hockey champion- ship, to our basketball team and last but not least to our track team. As the final bell rings out the class of 1955, a new and more exciting period of our life is begun. We wish each and every one of you the greatest success possible. We close, offering up a little prayer: May God bless each and every one of us. Vincent M. Boland ' 55 Gilbert Y. Chin ' 55 AltimmJ otes The English High Association, the oldest and largest high school associa- tion in the United States, boasts 23,000 members. From our portals the gradu- ates of E.H.S. have entered all walks of life. Many have been a credit to this institution of learning. Throughout the world, wherever you go, you ' ll meet a fellow graduate. The roster of judges in this Commonwealth of Massachusetts has twelve Blue and Blue graduates including Chief Justice of the Superior Court, John P. Higgins, class of 1911. Oscar Brodney, who was graduated with the class of 1923, wrote the screen plays for two current hit pictures, " The Sign of the Pagan " and " The Black Shield of Falworth " . School Committeeman Louis Musco graduated with the class of 1929. He is another of our many prominent alumni who have helped many young men on the road to success. His office is always open to any boy seeking advice. This man has been a credit to E.H.S. Dr. Samuel Levine, Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Harvard Medical School, was graduated from E.H.S. in 1906. Dr. Levine is credited with being one of the first to identify coronary thrombosis in the field of medical research. He first discovered the lack of acid in the stomachs of persons afflicted with pernicious anemia. He has made invaluable contributions to the study of thyroid heart disease. A $400,000 Professorship was established at the Harvard Medical School in the name of Dr. Levine by Charles Merrill, a grateful patient. William H. Obrenberger, coach and toastmaster extraordinary, was ap- pointed Assistant Superintendent of Schools in Boston this past year. He was graduated from E.H.S. in 1923. In 1927 he graduated from Boston College. He became football varsity coach of St. Thomas High School 1927-1929. 1929- 1930 he was a teacher and coach at Georgetown Prep, Bill Obrenberger taught Math at E.H.S. m 1930, 1930-1931 he was line coach at B.C. After having gained much experience from these different positions, he came to E.H.S. as coach. From 1932-1945 he coached some of the greatest teams in the history of the school. His glorious career at English, however, came to an end when he was asked to extend his guidance from the few at English to all the boys in Boston. He had been appointed Assistant Director of Physi- cal Education, a position which he held from 1945-1954. In all his career Wil- liam Obrenberger distinguished himself as a leader. He has fought hard against much opposition to get better school conditions for Boston and especi- ally for E.H.S. At the English High School Home Coming, November 22, 1954, a suitable delegation, representing almost all of the graduated classes, turned out. Among the speakers were: Joseph Freno, President of the Association; Joseph Lapidus, Secretary; Rowe Gladwin, Treasurer; Louis Musco, School Comittee- man; and William Stewart, E.H.S. coach. Guest speakers at the meeting were: Leo Daley, Assistant Superintendent of Schools in Boston, and Mr. A. " Swede " Nelson, prominent insurance broker and sports figure. The spirit of the Blue and Blue rang true that night and we hope that there will be many more nights like that one. In many colleges throughout the United States, English High School graduates have done and still are doing notable work. Many of our graduates have gone on to advance research. This institution is proud of these men and of the men who did not go to college. Many have entered business and have established themselves among the best. English High School has been and will continue to be an institution of learning but moreover a place of encour- agement for any boy who wishes to achieve success.
