In it we have tried to capture the atmosphere of the school— its happy moments, its frustrations, and its rewards. Instead of using words to show the life of the school, we let pictures speak. The picture has not been glorified. Instead this picture of Fort Hunt shows 1963-64 as we lived it day by day. In hopes that it will bring to mind many pleasant memories we, The Fortress Staff, present this yearbook to you. There were moments for ... building ... planning ... and organizing.

As the 1963-64 school year opened, the Juniors were faced with the many responsibilities of a new school. We have been, in effect, two classes, Juniors in grade and Seniors in responsibility. Choosing class leaders was a difficult task; however, we took it in stride. We ordered class rings, took college boards, and planned for a successful prom, setting many firsts for the classes to follow. May we always remember our past endeavors with pride and look forward to our future—beyond graduation 1965. 25 Randall Abbott Shearon Acree m Geoffrey Adams Robert Adams John Almond Carol Ames John Anderson Arthur Aenchbacher Martha Aim on Juan Aviles Richard Andrews Mary Angel William Antonelli Frederick Ayers Suzanne Bach Cleveland Baker Mark Baker Patricia Baker Susan Baldwin Ralph Bane Carl Barnes 26 Paul Barry Marsha Bathurst Edward Bautz Jay Beall Paul Beighley Susan Bentley Beatrice Bernat Miriam Bernat Susan Billings Dale Bell Daniel Bird Linda Blaisdell Ronald Blout Please!

With the election of officers and a Sophomore Council in November, we started planning a year full of activities. Our first activity was to obtain funds for the treasury through a paper drive; decal sales followed to supplement our income. This initial money was used to finance our other activities. Believing that an active year is beneficial to establishing a class spirit, we have undertaken a full program of activities. We hope that our participating fully will insure a better rising Junior Class. 46 THE CLA Thomas Vaughan, President; Gretchen Turner, Secretary; Terry Duel, Treasurer; Michael Ranney, Vice President.

The Fort Hunt High School Graduating Class of 1967 has em¬ barked on a " do-something " high school career. So far, we have actively participated in many school projects, including: the Magazine Campaign—in which we are not only led in total subscriptions, but the two homerooms leading in sales were also from the Freshman Class; the Intramural Activities—largest number of participants in the initial Intramural Program at Fort Hunt High School; the Student Government—through our 9th Grade Council, we have contributed to the development of the total school program at Fort Hunt. Despite problems of construction and incomplete facilities, our Class has had two successful group activities this year: the Ninth Grade Superstition Dance on Friday, March 13, 1964, and the Class Picnic. With an eye to the future and with the experience of past per¬ formance, the Graduating Class of 1967 should certainly far surpass the expectations of the present upper-classmen. Anticipating many future honors for our Class and fellow students, we are earnestly looking forward to being the first Graduating Class to have complete d all four years of our high school program at Fort Hunt. With the assistance of our very patient Class Sponsor, Mrs. Jane Hall, we feel confident that we shall reach our objectives. 63 D (D 3 3 CD CD r Lynette Abel Catherine Aenchbacher Jeffrey Andrews Pamela Andrews John Antonelli Wilham Armstrong Stephen Arnhart Terrance Bach Barbara Baker Victoria Baker Andrew Baldwin Ellison Banks Bruce Barrett Michael Bates William Battison Susan Baughan Hugh Beazley Christine Blakeney Anthony Bly Thomas Bollinger Richard Boren Timothy Boyd Evelyn Boynton Kathleen Brehony John Bridges Bruce Brill Patricia Brindley Gregory Broadhurst Christine Brown Ivy Brown Richard Brown Stephen Brown Thomas Brown Michael Bruggeman Richard Brush Joseph Bryson Ann Buchanan Chris Burleson Denny Burns Francine Burton Robert Bush Benjamin Byrd 64 Susan Calafato Robert Campbell Thomas Casberg Gary Caumont Frank Ceresi Peter Certa John Chadsey Stephanie Chambers Robert Chance Margaret Chappel Angela Chase William Chatfield Patrick Cheatham Constance Choate Karen Christensen Jane Clarke Janice Cobb Walter Colbert r Robert Coleman Charles Conley Cathleen Cook Phillip Corn Robin Crabill Elizabeth Cravens Mary Ann Creighton Jane Cronin William Croom Diane Curling John Curry Stephen Cywin Charles Daniel John Danowski John Danyew Alan Davenport Donna Davies Elizabeth Davies Susan Davies Robert Davis Michael DeCandio Bruce Dell Thomas Dinser Louis Dirhan 65 □ 03 3-00 r e s m e n Diane Dodge William Donnelly Michael Dougherty Lynn Douthwaite Brien Downing William Dripps Jeralee Duff Richard Dundas Donna Eanes William Ecker Bruce Edwards Karen Eltzroth Joseph Evans Virginia Evans Gene Everett Linda Ewing Sharon Fairhurst Sandra Fanning James Farmer Kathleen Ferriss Robert Fimiani Steven Finlayson Mary Finney John Ford Marjorie Ford Jo Ann Fowler Martha Fraley Christopher Frazier Elaine Friis Jeffrey Fulton William Gardner Moira Garvey Robert Godman Daniel Goers Catherine Goeser Jeffries Goodwin Diane Greenhill Elizabeth Grove Paula Haff Catherine Hagen Barry Hall Leslie Hall 66 Lynne Hall William Halsted Susan Harder Wendy Harn Linda Harris Stephen Harris Thomas Harvey Dean Hauer John Havill Louis Heilbron Alyce Hellwig Holly Helton John Hempstead George Hernholm Thomas Herrell David Hesaltine Marc Hess Craig Hillis r e s m e n Thomas Hines Jeanne Hird Bruce Hockman Alan Hoffman Christine Hogan Barbara Hoke William Hoke Herbert Holdsambeck Clara Holladay Alan Holland Michael Hoover Charles Hopkins Mary Houston Deborah Hower Charles Hudson Thomas Hughes Lynne Hutcheson Sue Hynds Gary Ingram Barbara Ivey Martin Jarvis Warren Jepson Patricia Jeskey Norma Jett 67 r e s m e n Charles Jones Kenneth Jones Stephanie Joy Kenneth Kanline Thomas Kaye Joseph Kelly John Kennedy Mary Kennedy Colleen Kenney Marilyn Kilgore Bruce King Ella Kirk Wayne Kirschbaum Herbert Kirshrot Marie Kissam Martha Klaasse Constance Knowles Susan Kofler William Koons Stephanie Kopp Janet Kougias Marjorie Laird Kenneth Langlotz Linda Langlotz Mauro Lanzisera John Lea Eleanor Leo Roy Letsen Linda Lewis Susan Lewis Douglas Linn Cheryl Livengood Quentin Lloyd Richard Lockett Nancy Long Kelley Lott Kenneth Lucas Virginia McComas Penelope McCurry Patricia McGovern Joyce McGuire Patricia McKenzie 68 Kathryn Mann on Henry Manson Teig Marco Anthony Marshall Pamela Martin Therese Martin Kent Matthews Nikii May Clarence Melugin Deborah Mewshaw Theodore Michaelis Katherine Miles Gail Miller Margaret Miniclier Janet Misdom Karen Mogan Timothy Monan Thomas Moore Danielle Moriarty Donna Mowery Carolyn Moy James Mullen Becky Murph Kevin Murphy Linda Muther Susanne Myatt Sherrie Nantz Kathryn Neitzey Joan Nemeth Patricia Newman Sara Newman Kathy Newpher Ann Nickeson Christine Norris Candace Norton Bruce O ' Dell Deborah Oja David Olsen Laura Ordoyne Edward Orenge Catherine Page Lochlin Page 69 B(Ol[(DC Z5 CD 3 3 " W © Susan Page Campbell Palfrey Mark Palmer Larry Parks Mary Parris Stacy Parrott Anita Parsons Brian Patterson Elizabeth Patterson Thomas Patterson Sidney Pedersen Michael Pelletier Susan Phillips Barbara Pierce Charles Pikrallidas Nancy Pinnell Brian Porter Gemma Powell Jackson Prentice Bonnie Procter Elizabeth Putnam Sara Queen Sue Rafert William Rawson Patricia Ray Sandra Ray John Resch Daniel Rich Patricia Ritter Patricia Rivard Pamela Roberts Shawn Robertson Jimmy Robinson Michael Robinson Bonita Rollins Stephen Rosenberg Linda Rothwell Lee Roxbrough John Roy all Karen Russell Sandra Russell Bruce Ryker 70 .

Mr. Gorman, Fac¬ ulty Sponsor; Mr. Davis, Ad¬ ministrative Sponsor The Provisional Student Government (PSG) was the product of the summer work of a Student Steering Committee—24 elected representatives of the three classes that were to enter Fort Hunt in September. The Steering Committee established executive committees headed by its members but made up of interested students, including a Con¬ stitutional Committee which wrote the Provisional Constitution for the Fort Hunt Student Body. The Provisional Constitution included the Steer¬ ing Committee as a part of the PSG under the name of the Student Council, the executive body. The Steering Committee ' s officers became the Student Council officers of the PSG and its committees continued to function. The PSG was under the executive direction ot its officers, Chairman, Vice-Chairman for each Class, Secretary, and Treasurer, and of its com¬ mittees: Activity, Arts and Bulletin Boards, Con¬ stitutional, Building and Grounds, Finance, Hos¬ pitality, Publications, and Public Relations. The legislative and more largely representative council was the Student General Assembly, to which each homeroom sent a delegation having one vote. The PSG also established an Activities Council for the clubs ' representation and an Academic Council Row 1: S. Bowden, K. Smoke, R. Dennehy, J. Weissman, J. Andrews; Row 2: S. Kosmacki, N. Evans, R.

Knudsen for co-ordination of phases of our academic life. The Administration established a Cafeteria Coun¬ cil made up of officers from the PSG and the classes. The PSG functioned until it had established the enduring student body organization—the Fort Hunt Student Co-operative Association. Among the student government-sponsored ac¬ tivities this year were the sale of victory tags for football games, a successful magazine campaign, several bake sales and sock hops, and a March of Dimes Drive. Plans for the future include participation in conventions and leadership con¬ ferences throughout the state. Fort Hunt benefited from the establishment of a provisional student government for its student body. From the efforts and goals, the mistakes and successes of the first year, a foundation was laid for a strong and rewarding SCA. The stu¬ dent life during most of 1963-1964 may not have been entirely unified, may not have been ex¬ tremely active, but the elements of unity and action were realized as the Fort Hunt students became the Fort Hunt Student Body, able to call itself a Student Co-operative.

Once a month the Activ¬ ity Council met with rep¬ resentatives from each club to direct the efforts of the organizations to¬ ward a mutual goal. An essential part of the plans of the Activity Coun¬ cil this year was the chartering of the clubs. The goal was finalized with an impressive cere¬ mony giving the rights of corporation within Fort Hunt High School to the clubs. Other plans for school-wide activities were made and co¬ ordinated at the meet¬ ings. Row 1: N. Ward, G. Martin, D. Oliver, Chairman; C. Hofler, Secretary; A. Carlton, G. Boyd; Row 2: K. Smoke, E.

Academic Council The Academic Council was organ¬ ized to further promote academic studies at Fort Hunt High School. It is an organized student tutoring pro¬ gram made up of representatives from each of the honor societies. The Coun¬ cil aids those students having trouble learning and provides a teaching ex¬ perience for advanced students. The Academic Council is also planning seminar programs for students interest¬ ed in certain subject areas. J. Weissman, M Gunderson, S. Einbinder, Secretary; E.

The business committee began by collecting the money necessary to finance this undertaking. During tne sports seasons, the photographers were busy taking action shots of the various games. Then the class committee went into action when the time came for class and faculty pictures to be sorted. As clubs were formed, the clubs and organizations staff was kept occupied writing articles about each group ' s activities. Bit by bit, the sections were completed. It was then the job of the layout committee to assemble the sections, and gradually the first edition of the fortress emerged in its present form. EDITORIAL STAFF: P. Stehling, S. King, L. Ivey, S.

Foremost, was the desire to follow the principles of good journalism. Although the staff was handicapped by the lack of school time for newspaper work, many successful ed¬ itions were publisned. Staff members participated in the annual Columbia Scholastic Press As¬ sociation Convention in March at Columbia University in New York City and in the Southern Interscholastic Press Association ' s April con¬ vention at Washington and Lee University. Many long hours of hard work were spent in an attempt to produce a newspaper of which the entire stu¬ dent body could be proud. Editors J. Harris, Circulation Editor; S. Pieper, Art Editor; A.

Major events, recorded in the club ' s history, in¬ cluded the composition of by-laws, acceptance by Keyette National, and participation in the Keyette National Convention early in April. Members assisted the Key Club with their fall woodchopping project by the contribution of much needed moral support. Delicate Christmas cards were made and presented to all faculty members by the Keyette Club. In celebration of St. Valentine ' s Day, club members traveled to St. Elizabeth ' s Hospital to present a variety show. Late in March, Easter lilies were sold by club members in nearby shopping centers. Supplemented by several social functions, the year proved to be noth busy and rewarding as we fulfilled our purpose of serving the school and community. Row 1: A. Carlton, Historian; C.

The members who are quite active in all areas of school life, show unbounded ability and great enthusiasm—two factors beneficial to the school, community and the individual member. The Fort Hunt Chapter became affiliated with Key Club International in the fall of ' 63 under the direction of Mr. George Lyons, sponsor. To raise funds, the members cut firewood and sold it throughout the community. With their sponsoring unit, the Mount Vernon Kiwanis Club, they sold Christmas trees. They donated the Christmas tree to the school and along with the Keyettes took part in a variety show at St. Elizabeth ' s Hospital. Dale Oliver was elected Secretary-Editor of Division 10 of Key Club. In March the members attended the District Convention in Richmond, Virginia. Pat Stehling, Key Club Sweetheart Row 1: H.

Hunt Chapter of the National Honor Society was organized by transfer members of the National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society under the guidance of Mrs. Watkins. It quickly integrated its proposed programs into the academic life of Fort Hunt by working with the SCA Academic Council, planning for honor and tutoring pro¬ grams and for a scholarship plan, and enlarging its membership. Membership is based upon scholarship, ser¬ vice, leadership, and character—as determined by what teachers say about an applicant, by wnat the applicant ' s records reveal, and by what he tells about himself. While sophomores are eligible for provisional membership, juniors and seniors are active members. The Mount Vernon Senior Honor Society officially installed our chapter on February 18, 1964, as the group was enlarged to 39 members. The goals of the Honor Society include the support of the standards for membership, of honors and seminar programs, and of high goals in academic life. Row 1: S. Brockett, J. Green, M Grady, S.

McComas French Honor Society Excellence in the pursuit of knowledge of the French people and their language is the basic goal of La Societe Honoraire de Francais. The Societe is characterized by the active interest in the French language as generated by its members. Upon receiving a charter from La Societe Honoraire de Francais, Mmes. Nelson and South developed the idea of such a societe in their classes. After careful review of past records in both French and all other subjects, selection was made of the charter members of the Societe Honoraire de Francais of Fort Hunt High School. These students were inducted in an im¬ pressive ceremony conducted by the sponsors, Mmes. Nelson and South. It was at this ceremony that the members came to realize the responsibility which they accepted by becoming members. In essence they would be ambassadors of France to the United States. Future projects of the Societe Honoraire de Francais include the viewing of French films, discussion in French with people from France, the attendance of the Societe at speeches given at the French Embassy, and an attempt to broaden knowledge of France in a seminar-type program. Generally, the Societe Honoraire de Francais is a broaden¬ ing of the horizons of its members in the French language. Row 1: M Smith, Kter Horst, L. Suiter, A. Carlton, B. Arm- bruster, C.

Under the leadership of Mrs. McKenna, the club will be a society of honor students who will study German culture to form¬ ulate programs to teach other German students about German life. The German Club will be initiated next year and will be open to any student studying German. Its purpose will be to help students understand German culture. P. Redd, M Kenworthy, B. Boykin, W.

These students not only had to have an above-average level of achievement in Spanish, but they had to have a satisfactory average in all other subjects. Because of a lack of previously inducted members, the new initiates took part in the planning of the March inductions and other activities. With the help of its sponsors, Miss Cacciapaglia and Miss Tucker, the Spanish Honor Society hopes to rovide recognition for outstanding achievement y students studying Spanish and to promote Hispanic studies.

Swartz Debate Club Meeting after school between September and February, the Fort Hunt Debate Club prepared for the annual tournament under the guidance of Mr. Bert Cohen, sponsor. The club was accepted into the Northern Virginia Debate League and was placed on the District schedule with the other schools. The national topic for 1964 was, " Re¬ solved: Social Security benefits be extended to include complete medical care. " Preparation started with extemporaneous speeches about topical subjects and exhibition debates by the more experienced members. Drills were conducted on basic procedure and strategy, and the members learned the art of cross-exam¬ ination through interrogation practice. At the same time, individual and group research was done on " Medicare. " As the season approached, a delegation of eight debaters attended the George Washington University Conference. Fort Hunt participated in scrimmage debates with five Fair¬ fax and Arlington schools. Shortly before the first match, fourteen Fort Hunt patrons qualified as judges. During February ana March, Fort Hunt ' s Varsity and Junior Varsity debated at Edison High, in the Debate Tournament held there. Mr. Cohen, Sponsor; L. Young, Secretary; H. McComas, Presi¬ dent; T.

Besides spreading folk music throughout the school, the members are learning new and various types of folk music, how to develop a definite style technique, and they are increasing their repertoire. Plans for the year included a Junior Day Hootenanny as well as other Hootenannies. Clinics in development of instrument playing as well as song appreciation are offered to develop scope. Row 1: B.

At a later meeting officers were elected, and they promptly began to formulate the processes of developing a strong Pep Club. Due to a late start in most extra-curricular activities, the Pep Club was somewhat restricted this year in carrying out all of its plans. Never¬ theless, many students worked diligently to pro¬ vide decorations and " victory letters " for the football games and to sponsor " victory weeks. " The club made and sold victory tags, provided stuffed effigies for pep rallies, and in general helped to instill school spirit which is urgently needed in a new high school. The Pep Club also had some bake sales with a different highlight - selling cakes representative of specific holidays. The biggest project of the Pep Club this year was the spring production of our Teacher-Student Talent Show. Row 1: L. Vogt, S. Stewart, N. Schreiner, K. Ayers, M Minervino, V. Rasmussen, " R.

Also slated for the future is the launching of a camera on a two-stage rocket. Bon voyage! This year the Rifle Club has organized itself into a functioning body composed of twenty members under the guidance of Mr. Macdonald. Three officers were elected and a formal con¬ stitution was written. The members acquired a six-point range and adequate insurance to permit them to fire there weekly. The club is a member club of the National Rifle Association. Now that the organization is settled, our sharpshooters will be on the prowl for competition from rivaling clubs. The Rifle Club eagerly awaits these en¬ counters in anticipation of establishing a Fort Hunt tradition of expert marksmanship. Row 1: M Bates, Vice President; R. Williams, President; D.

By working in service projects, the members are able to observe nursing as a career. Most of the girls are in the Nurses’ Aid program at local hospitals. Plans for the year included taking trips to Junior Village to help with the infants once or twice a month, taking a home nursing course, and giving a tea to gain affiliation with other nurses ' organizations in the area. Future Nurses check patient ' s records. Future Nurses help in filing and in filling charts. 99 Future Teachers of America The Future Teachers of America was formed this year by students who plan to be¬ come teachers and who desire to find out more about the various teaching fields offered in the United States today. The members have had bake sales to raise money, and they would like to visit N.E.A. in Washington, D.C., where they would learn about the various aspects of the teaching pro¬ fession. The members also hope to hear speakers discuss edu¬ cation, and they would like to visit an elementary class. Row 1: Miss Spruill, Sponsor; S. Davis, Vice President; E.

The band pro¬ vided a foundation for scnool spirit during the football games and pep rallies. _ , Fall gave way to winter and found the band in concert season. Most of this time was spent in preparation for the Northern Virginia Band Festival, held this year at Hammond High School. It is somewhat a culmination of the musical year. All high schools in Northern Virginia present compositions for a rating. The Fort Hunt Band received an excellent rating on its entries. One of our goals this year has been to obtain uniforms. As money is necessary to attain this end, we have initiated several money making projects. One of these was a highly successful candy selling drive. Under the most capable direction ot Mr. Clair C. Christy, the group of students who first formed the band has been transformed into a well-trained musical addition to Fort Hunt High School.

Mr. King, the director and teacher of the Freshmen Chorus, Boys ' Chorus, Treble Choir, Cham¬ ber Choir and a theory class, has taught his students not only the funda¬ mental techniques of fine craftsmen- ship, but also the art of music. The first formal appearance of the choruses was at the Christmas Con¬ cert; also during Christmas, the choir sang to the public at Belleview Shop¬ ping Center. During the winter months, the Chamber Choir sang at The Church of the Covenant in Arling¬ ton, and the Boys ' Chorus, Treble Choir, and Chamber Choirperformed at a student assembly. The Treble Choir and Boys ' Choruses combined, sang at Fort Belvoir in the Easter Sunrise Service. Then, three choruses and five soloists participated in the annual choral Festival held at Madi¬ son High School. To complete the full calendar, a formal spring con¬ cert was given at the end of May in the school auditorium for the public. The year was very successful and they hope next year will be more so.

Under Coach Berry ' s leadership, the individual members became a toughened team whose training began last summer in mid-August. The Federals had a good start by defeating the Lee " B " team, 19-0. Two other triumphs were a 25-7 victory over Mount Vernon and a 6-0 rousing victory over the Groveton Varsity. Every¬ one considers Fort Hunt ' s first grid team a success.

The team, coached by Mr. Colna, was aided by good pitching and catching as well as having some members with previous playing experience. The team played its home games at Wayne- wood Recreation Area. Because it did not have a home diamond, and may not have for several years, the team had to play at a disadvantage.

However, as the season progressed, the team learned more about the sport; and the hopes are that next year ' s team will get off to a better start with more experienced participants. During this season, the track at Fort Hunt was completed and with it available for practice next year, the future looks good. FHHS Opponent Ed ison 18 63 Woodson 13 100 Groveton Lee Mt.

The re¬ mainder of the team gained some valuable ex¬ perience this year which will help prepare them to be tough foes next year. The team was very fortunate to have been given playing and practicing privileges at such courses as Wood- lawn, Belle Haven, Army-Navy, Westwood, Springfield, Quantico, and Fairfax.

Participating in var¬ sity matches were 15 boys, four of whom had had previous experience. The coach, Mr. Pattisall, played the experienced players in the singles matches and the boys further down the ladder in the doubles competition. Over half of the team will be returning for three years, so Fort Hunt should be assured of good tennis teams. Our " Rac-Queteers " held their matches at the Belle Haven Country Club courts.

The combination of experience gained from Miss Woolfolk ' s direction, and the fact that the entire squad will return in full force next fall, should lead to a successful ' 64- ' 65 season.

Under the direction of Miss Duncan and Miss Woolfolk, the squad worked toward this goal. During football season they had a bonfire at which time they wore the players ' jerseys, burned a Major (in effigy, of course!), and danced the Bunny-Hop. The other pep rallies held throughout the year were quite successful, especially the one for the opening of the long-awaited gym. The squad also helped to promote school spirit by promoting a " Victory Week. " Aided greatly by the J.V. and Freshmen cheering squads, the cheerleaders have helped to instill enthu¬ siasm in the student body.
