Gone will be the walks through the familiar corridors and gone will be the daily renewal of close friend¬ ships with students and teachers here. As we continue on our separate pathways to the future and participate in new activities elsewhere, it will be our privilege to recall the days spent here as Vineyarders of the Regional. It is my hope that the pictures and words in the 1963 VINE¬ YARDER will be to all classmates and friends the spark capable of igniting, into a bright and excit¬ ing flame, the fond memories of experiences and friendships here. 2 TABLE OF CONTENTS Foreword _ 2 Dedication _ 4 Administration and Faculty_ 5 Seniors _ 17 Underclassmen _ 49 Academic Life _-_ 59 Sports __ 67 Activities _ 77 Yearbook Staff_86 Patrons _ 88 3 DEDICATION BECAUSE in the year of 1959 he and we entered together this new building which we alone now leave: BECAUSE together we started this new Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School on its way with hope of establishing a standard for others to follow: BECAUSE he has been our Principal and we are now the first four-year class, the first full product of our School: BECAUSE he has led us through our trials and tribulations : BECAUSE the School as we remember it will be the School as he and we have made it together: BECAUSE we believe our School will go on to greater things in future as traditions grow: BECAUSE he and we will always have together the distinction that together we were first, together the beginning of it all: FOR THESE REASONS we, the Class of 1963, respectfully dedicate this, our VINEYARDER, to Mr. Charles A. Davis, Mr. Charles A.

The School Committee of the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School extends its most cordial and sincere best wishes to the Graduating Class of 1963. You, who have had four full years of our Regional High curriculum, go forth as examples of your community’s interest and devotion to its young people. We hope that what you have gained during your four years here will stand you in good stead wherever you may go. 6 SUPERINTENDENT’S MESSAGE In every educational institution throughout the nation the need for a sound evaluation of new cultures, new countries, new scientific theories and even new sciences is coupled with the need for educating more and more qualified people. In our school the response to this challenge has produced a signific¬ ant theme for this the fourth year of the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School. The theme: evalua¬ tion. More is expected of the high school graduate today, so you must go into the world with more to offer. You must develop your abilities, interests and achievements to high levels. In evaluating your scholastic records, I know that you are well equipped to face the challenges of life. I hope that your successes of the future will be seen as the answer to the cry for more. Not more numbers but more quality. I hold as a cherished privilege the opportunity which I have shared with the faculty in molding the academic framework within which we have worked. I value the contributions of the students in the develop¬ ment of our educational foundations. I hope that we have established a school which will have a long and distinguished history. I congratulate you and wish you success in your future endeavors. May you always be as proud of your school as your school is proud of you. CHARLES E. DOWNS PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE CHARLES A. DAVIS Sputnik I, the prime mover of the Sixties, the Tin-Lizzy of our space age, has, figuratively speaking, jettisoned the missiles of educational apathy into a deserving orbit; far out of the way of man’s eager curiosity. In the past the educational lag between theory and practice was no less than twenty years; but in the wake of our orbiting astronauts there has been a most welcomed renaissance in educational pedagogy and endeavor, which has closed the gap considerably and has recharged the atmosphere of our nation’s classrooms. The most significant change is in the attitude of the student. Although there are still those who would have you believe that the Three R’s stand for Rah! Rah! Rah! we take hope in the greater majority who have come to realize that education is the prosperity of youth and that our educated youth are our nation’s posterity. Herbert Hoover, at a reception given him by the State of Iowa on his 80th birthday concurred when he said: “that a nation is strong or weak, it thrives or perishes upon what it believes to be true. If our youth is rightly instructed in the faith of our fathers, in the traditions of our country, in the dignity of each individual man, then our power will be stronger than any weapon man can devise.” As we evaluate your past four years of school I am confident that your school has met that chal¬ lenge. I am happy and proud to have shared those years with you, and be assured that I will follow with interest your future endeavors and take a personal pride in your inevitable success. Good luck and Godspeed. 8 GUIDANCE COUNSELOR’S MESSAGE . a school should be evaluated in terms of what it is striving to accomplish and in terms of the extent to which it is meeting the needs of its students . . This quote, taken from the Manual of the Evaluative Criteria published by the National Study of Secondary Schools, is truly apropos when speaking about schools. However, it takes on more signific¬ ance when the reference is made to each graduate of 1963. For after all, our school will be evaluated in terms of how successful our students and graduates are able to develop a proper evaluation of them¬ selves. Their ability to determine reasonable goals and the means of achieving those goals will ulti¬ mately be their success or failure as well as the school’s success or failure. From birth you started to make judgements and evaluations about yourselves and your surroundings. This process has intensified through the years until you reached, you thought, the apex of this search in your senior year. However, with graduation this search will become the predominant motivation in determining your thoughts aud actions. You are leaving the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School where more people have been interested in you and your future than possibly there ever will be again. It is my hope that you have progressed in this search arid have taken advantage of the opportunities here in high school. It is also my wish that you all attain that mark of a successful person in the ability to make a just evaluation of your¬ selves and your fellow man. Good luck and Godspeed . . . JOHN J.

Both as friends and as teachers they have given unstintingly of their time to aid us in our various class activities: they have given us sound advice and judgments, and have faithfully done their du¬ ties as class advisors. Whether our problems in¬ volved details of a class meeting, a dance, or the Senior Play, Mr. Robichau and Mr. Knight were on hand to help us. We are greatly indebted to them and wish to express here our deep feeling of gratitude. A WORD OF THANKS TO OUR CLASS ADVISORS 36 CLASS HISTORY As Freshmen, we entered the Martha’s Vine¬ yard Regional High School shyly, for the new school was a strange place to us. However, it did not take long for us to become acquainted with the new environment and new teachers. We met our advisors, Mrs. Winifred Eggers and Mr. Joseph Robichau, selected our courses and received our schedule cards. At first there were many trips to the Guidance Office to change our courses and classes. After we had revised our schedules- and settled down a little, we held our first dance, the Freshman Hop. We worked diligently on the planning, the decora¬ tions, and the refreshments, and as a result the dance was a success. The year went rather slowly until spring; then, all of a sudden we were out of school and facing a whole summer of work. Our advisors, Mrs. Eggers and Mr. Robichau, continued helping us in our Sophomore year. At the beginning of the year we sponsored a dance which was enjoyed by all. The Class of 1963 witnessed the first season of football at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School that year. We were proud of many of our Sopho¬ more boys who took an active part in the sport. At the end of the year we were all anxious to order our class rings on which was stated— The Class of 1963! To celebrate this important event we held another successful dance. As Juniors we acquired a new advisor, Mr. Elliott Knight, in place of Mrs. Eggers, who 37 had resigned. To honor our boys who were still participating in football we sponsored a Foot¬ ball Dance early in the season. Also in the fall, we received our class rings. Many of us started to make plans for college entrance, and once more there was a great rush of our class¬ mates to the Guidance Office. Then we looked forward to the biggest event of the year, the Junior Prom. We selected committees which spent many hours planning for the big event under the leadership of an able cbairman, John Clements. Our time decorating and planning for “My Blue Heaven” was well spent for the Prom was a great success. We were happy to see our classmates, Susan Grimmet crowned Prom Queen and Kenneth deBettencourt, Prom Kill " . Following the Prom came the graduation of the Class of 1962. Walter Jenkinson, selected as Graduation Marshal by the departing seniors, spent many hours practicing ceremonies with them and conducted himself with dignity. It was sad to see our friends go, and we thought about next year when we would be in their places. 38 Finally came the big year. We were, at last, Seniors! At the beginning of the year there were many activities, and even then we knew that our last year at the Regional was going to fly. One of the first orders of business was the selection of the different Yearbook Staffs; everybody signed up eagerly. The Senior boys worked very hard to sup¬ port their team for the last season. To encour¬ age them and to ’greet the visiting Nantucket team, we held our second Football Dance. We were proud and happy when our boys won most of their games. In October we had our pictures taken for the Yearbook and by December we were busy exchanging prints. On top of all this, most of the Seniors were taking examinations, sending out applications, and trying to decide what school, college or job they would be head¬ ing for in June. Before we knew it, it was 1963! In the early part of the new year, we started working on our Senior Play, “A Night On The Town,” which was directed by Sally Shurtleff, Ruth Legg, Judith Conrad, and Doren Voetli. In February we received our invitations and name cards; and we were rudely reminded of what lay ahead. Class Day, the Senior Banquet, The Graduation Ball and finally our Commencement exercises. The spirit of the Class of 1963 will remain with the school forever in our school Alma Mater, written by our classmates, Sally Shurt¬ leff and John Clements. As we look back on September 9, 1959, the first day as Vineyarders of the Regional High School, we remember the card tables used for teachers’ desks, the unfamiliar voice speaking on an unfamiliar public address system calling- lost students back to the office, and the many faces expressing curiosity. As a result of the efforts of many dedicated people, we have been able to see improvements in the school, and even more important, in the work and interest of the students. The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School has graduated its first four-year class, the Class of ’63. 39 MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED Joseph Rokicki and Ruth Chatterton CLASS MOST COURTEOUS Gregory Mayhew and Elizabeth Hyde MISS SENIOR CLASS Merrily Benz 40 PERSONALITY PLUS Edward Medeiros and Kathleen Willoughby FAVORITES CLASS WITS Edward Medeiros and Kristen Kingsbury MOST STUDIOUS Joseph Rokicki and Ruth Chatterton 41 42 MEMENTOS OF ’63 CLASS MOTTO To the past, our gratitude; to the present, our thoughts; to the future, our hopes.

CLASS OF 1964 The Junior Class has been active in many things this year. Our first big project was a bottle drive which the class organized and carried out successfully. We sponsored a football dance in November for the visiting Nantucket team and we also held the traditional Valentine Dance. Of course, the .prepara¬ tions of the Junior Prom have kept the class busy all winter. We have been working on our third class play, with Mr. Snow as director again. Twenty-two members of the Junior Class were invited to join the National Honor Society. Two of them hold offices in the Society, Two Juniors also hold offices in the Student Council. Many mem¬ bers of the class are active in athletics either as cheerleaders or as team players. Juniors are prominent in the chorus and orchestra, and in the band which plays at football and basketball games. Membel of the Junior Class participate in the Spanish and French singing and conversation groups and the Spanish and French plays. Judith Leonard Class Historian Sponsored By MICHAEL FONTES, JR. MR.

Early in that year we held a dance to augment our treasury. Soon after our dance we held a food sale in Oak Bluffs. Our most important event of that year was a Valentine’s Dance which seemed to he enjoyed by all. Now, as Sophomores, we have held a Christmas dance and a very successful bottle drive that covered the entire island. We have formed a committee to work on ideas for future projects to be presented to the class. The committee has helped in organizing the class meetings and projects. Sports, music, and clubs have been a source of interest for many of our class members.

Our shelves may reach their 4,000 book capacity by June. It is a fine collection. This year many of our language students were fortunate because our library now has many new books of the Spanish and French lan¬ guages, a great asset in their studies. The book section is increasing along with subscriptions to many magazines which our library contans. Supervised by a qualified librarian aided by stu¬ dent librarians, all students are wel¬ come to use the library for reference work and outside reading during study halls and after school, as well as for special class projects and for reading pleasure. ASSEMBLIES This year our assembly programs were both academic and educational. Well-known experts of the Island came to speak to us on marine biology. Is¬ land history and other special topics. We have also been addressed by guid¬ ance ' directors of colleges, business schools, and nursing schools, and even by recruiting officers of the armed forces. These guidance assemblies have been very valuable in helping us choose our careers and giving us con¬ fidence in our plans. We are grateful to Principal Davis and our guidance counselor, Mr. Ahern, for making all these assemblies possible. DRIVER EDUCATION The Driver Education class was de¬ signed to teach young people the cor¬ rect way to drive and to give them an opportunity to earn their licenses. The class met twice a week for ten weeks. Usually special movies which emphasized habits of safe driving were shown at the meetings. Those who completed the entire course suc¬ cessfully were “certified” by the State of Massachusetts and became eligible for reduced insurance rates. Sponsored By ATSCO OIL CO.

New teachers were working together and making a go of it. Since that first Regional year, this Department lias grown and matured, always with the future and the students in mind. Now, after four years, the Department is something we can all be proud of. It offers each student the type of mathematics he is likely to be needing in his life¬ time, and it is tailored with a good teaching program to help all serious students to master the subject. The courses offered cover a broad range from Shop Mathematics and General Arithmetic to Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and even a touch of Calculus. CIVICS In the Civics classes, community group life and community welfare are the main topics of study, including our homes and families, Americans as workers, the United States Govern¬ ment, and the Constitution under which it operates. This freshman course teaches students how they, as citizens in Aniferica, can use their spe¬ cial gifts to help create the satisfying life w ' hich they desire for themselves and for others. OFFICE WORKERS Administrative assistant in the cen¬ tral office, Mrs. Richard Colter helps eveiymne, answers phones, and keeps files . . . and with only two hands! She is assisted by volunteer High School girls who find the experience helpful. Often this job becomes inter¬ esting and exciting, because we feel that we are helping to run the school as we type out important bulletins and even the daily menu.

TLNG Edgartown 61 BIOLOGY This has been a stimulating year for the Biology classes. Thanks to Mr. DeFeo’s enthusiasm, the students have learned to take a real interest in the science of life. While we have done the usual book study and labo¬ ratory ' work of a Biology course, we have carried our activity further to after-school labs and week-end field trips on the Island. Also this year we had our first Science Fair, together with the other science classes. Proj¬ ects were made by students in all sci¬ ence courses; and three prizes were awarded in each of the divisions. Bi¬ ology, General Science, Chemistry, and Physics. Here some Biology stu¬ dents are shown with their Science Fair projects. BIOLOGY CLUB Members of the Biology class formed an active club under the leadership of Mr. Samuel DeFeo. This Club gave students additional time to practice laboratory techniques and to work on special projects. The main project of the club was a tree nursery which was started on the school grounds. This nursery not only supplied specimens for classroom study but also will provide decorative shrubbery for the school in the future. PHYSICS The Physics class this year has de¬ veloped a healthy respect for Sir Isaac Newton while following his foot¬ steps in the study of gravity, force, motion, and the measurement and structure of matter. Electrical, elec¬ tronic, mechanical, and other projects were undertaken and perfected for dis¬ play in the February Science Fair. Heat and light were also studied in the course. All these activities under the able direction of Mr. Stewart were found to be interesting and in¬ formative by the students. AT«Kic momts K. M. PACKER Sponsored By R. M. PACKER CO., INC. 62 Vineyard Haven CHEMISTRY Designed to meet college entrance requirements, this course has in¬ cluded study of the principal ele¬ ments, their reactions in combina¬ tions, and their uses in pure or com¬ pound forms. Each student preparing for college has heen required to com¬ plete a paper or a project, and the projects have heen part of the Science Fair. The project must he related to the coui ' se studies and laboratory work, and each student has devoted much thought and effort to his task. SPANISH CLASS The classes in Spanish offer three years of language study to provide the student with basic understanding, speaking and writing of Spanish. The Spanish alphabet, vocabulary and pro¬ nunciation are stressed. Agreement of adjectives, tense differences, and con¬ jugation of verbs are investigated to give the student the tools for conver¬ sation and translation. Individual thinking and self-expression are en¬ couraged through the language stud¬ ied. Spanish history and geography augment the course. SPANISH FOLK-SINGING GROUP Once a week the Music Center has come alive to Latin rhythms when a group of second and third year Spanish students have met to prac¬ tice singing of Spanish folk songs in preparation for the special Language Program presented in the spring. Leader of the group is John Clements; Marjorie Coutinho is accompanist at the piano, and Mr. Weissberg is on hand as advisor. What next? Shawls, capes, castanets, tambourines, and maybe El Toro.

The aims of the course are the teaching of prop¬ er techniques, development of auto¬ matic use of the keyboard, and of the ability to follow directions and to think constructively. During the first typewriting year the classes are given moderate speed drills, problems in tab¬ ulation, personal and business letters, and even lessons in grammar and punctuation. The second year is dedi¬ cated to increasing speed and accu¬ racy in typing letters, office forms, reports, and legal documents and also to. meeting production standards. SHORTHAND Both Shorthand I and Shorthand II are taught by Miss Barbara Lassen. This year’s Shorthand I class was striving mainly to master the basic fundamentals and correct writing pro¬ cedures of shorthand. Next year, when these students enter Shorthand II, they will try to achieve greater speed and accuracy. The dictation for transcription taken in Shorthand II is later transcribed in another class, transcription, where students are taught punctuation, spell¬ ing, and correct form for letters. OFFICE MACHINES The office machines class is taught by Mrs. Costa and consists of five senior girls. The purpose of this class is to teach the students the use of the different types of adding machines, the duplicator, the dictaphones and the mimeograph machines. During free periods, these girls help many teachers by typing and duplicating classroom worksheets. 64 SEWING With the guidance of Mrs. Drew, the Senior girls, as well as other sew¬ ing classes, have created many beauti¬ ful and useful items for their ward¬ robes. Pictured are several Senior girls displaying garments, illustrating their versatility an d skill in advanced cloth¬ ing techniques. They strive for per¬ fection in workmanship as well as speed in construction. COOKING To learn how to cook properly is a wonderful experience. Mrs. Drew has assisted us in cooking many fa¬ miliar and exotic dishes. We have also been instructed in proper prep¬ aration of an island trademark. Beach Plum Jelly. Cleanliness and neatness are im¬ portant requirements in our cooking class. We are all very proud of the modern equipment. Cooking is cer¬ tainly an adventure worth its salt! INDUSTRIAL ARTS During this school year, the excel¬ lent shop facilities of our school have come into full play, both in prepar¬ ing those for trades after school grad¬ uation and in rounding out the char¬ acter of the students by working man¬ ually as well as mentally. Mr. Catalano has shown his stu¬ dents the most efficient and the saf¬ est way to handle power tools and hand tools used in the shop.

To judge the success of his program, Mr. Pachico gave six United States Marine’s Phys¬ ical tests. Needless to say, many boys came out on top! GIRLS’ PHYSICAL EDUCATION The girls’ physical education course not only has the customary games of basketball, volleyball, and the like, but also offers the girls the chance to display their dancing ability. Taught by diagrams and records, the girls have learned square dancing, modern dancing and many new exer¬ cises. ARTS AND CRAFTS The art classes meet once a week uixder the supervision of Mr. Baer. Studies include perspective, abstrac¬ tionism, human proportion, and uses of artistic media such as pastels, scratchboard, and water colors. Mr. Baer has also instituted the use of the show case near the Library for student art displays. These attract much interest.

The group continued this year with the same objective but obtained greater results. Last year the group was its own audience; this year it offered its services for dances and parties. The most important and interesting function of the group is to improvise and vamp most of their music as they play. The members of tbe group tried to diversify their repertoire but still stav as mucb within the broad limits of Jazz as is possible. Sponsored By (L. to r.) E. Medeiros; D.
