I graduted Colonel White In 73 and moved out of town shortly thereafter. I remeber we had 11 high schools at that time in the city league. Now most are closed. I beleive they were:Colonel White-Meadowdale-Fairview-Belmont-Roth-Dunbar-Roosevelt-Patterson-Kiser-Stivers-Wilbur Wright.
Does anyone know what was the order in which they were closed?

Don't know how a duplicate posting got in here, but it makes sense to take it out, except it's only possible to edit, not delete a message completely.

(Sorry, folks.)

1954!! Nobody is older than that.
I graduated (after a few weeks in summer school to get my diploma) in 1965 from Stebbins. Not the same school any more. They tore down the old school and built a new one in the same place. I have heard that it is back to being a 4 year school again with grades 9 thru 12.

My mother, who passed away in 1994, graduated from Stivers High School...she was born in 1909...so assume she graduated in 1927.
Would anyone have a yearbook that has Agnes Brown pictured in it?
Thanks so much!

I wouldn't begin to say I knew more than a few people. For one thing, not that many girls came from my end of town. For another thing, I was not a part of anything like the underground sororities. And, for a third, Julienne didn't really have a lot of activities then, like there was no student publication.

I know some of the names of students that were things like class officers or who were called on a lot for good answers to questions, but that's about all.

There was one girl who was called simply "Lola" (not Lolalee) who was somewhere around, like maybe in one of the homerooms. From the sound of it, her last name was the same as that of a family that had people in the funeral home business and if memory serves me right there was reference to Oakwood.

Whadda mean nobody's older than that? There's lots of people older than that, and many of them manage to do things on computers (more than me).

Of course, that doesn't mean they found their way into Dayton History Books Online.

Riverdale, you are correct, however she is a distant relative, and we know nothing about the funeral home business, she normally goes by lee or lola,

Belmont is still in the old school. They expect to be in the new building after Christmas break. Wilbur Wright, now called "Wright Bros., is the same way, only they will now be back to PreK-8, which it was when it first opened.
Samstone, you are so bad! (It's me, Sm----na).

When I went to Belmont in the 60's the things that passed for crime were skipping class,smoking in the bathroom,an occasional fight in the parking lot and such.Kids were actually afraid of what would happen at home when their parents got a call about any of the above mentioned "crimes"!It's a shame those days are a thing of the past in my opinion!

Mr. White has done wonders at Belmont. When my daughter went there, and only for one semester before I pulled her out of there. I visited the school during class hours. The halls were full of kids and the halls were filthy. This was a child who pulled Cs in school, and brought home As from Belmont, which made me question their teaching also. After witnessing that, I pulled her out.
My grandson goes there now, and I could not believe the change. They have 4 minutes to get to class, and they do a countdown. He was only there 2 days, and Mr. White pulled him out of class. (Scared the poor kid :)). Seems Mr. White does that to all the new kids. He just wanted to get to know my gs better, and let him know if he had any problems, he could go to him. He is just what Belmont needed.

I graduated from Julienne in 1958. Many good memories and heart broken that the building will be or has been demolished. Made some good friends there and at St Albert the Great.

Suellen813HD: Actually, Martin Sheen (Raymond Estevez) graduated from Chaminade, not his boys. I graduated in '61 from CHS with his brother, John. I believe Raymnond was a '58 grad.

Hello, "joey_m". What great days at CHS. There was discipline, yet there was freedom; both properly proportioned. Some great teachers, those Brothers of Mary. They had some stories of their own, from their youth. I believe it was Brother Grundish (small in stature, slight of build) who got off a great punch when the fight broke out in Springfield, our senior year, after we upset them in football. I wonder if he ever used "the ice house" for training grounds; there certainly were a lot of fights over there.

Take care - nice hearing from a fellow grad.

Martin Sheen is the professional/stage name for Raymond Estevez, a Chaminade H.S. graduate. While he was in high school or shortly afterwards I saw him perform in "Arsenic and Old Lace." in Chaminade's auditorium with an amateur theater group. He had several brothers and one sister, Carmen, and grew up in the Brown Street area near the present Oregon District. It is my understanding that his stage name derives from Brother Martin, the Chaminade drama teacher, and Bishop Fulton J. Sheen of 1950's TV fame (Life is Worth Living). I believe he left Dayton shortly after high school to pursue an acting career in NYC.

I would have graduated from Chaminade in 1958 but was expelled for not doing my homework so I went to Roosevelt and was expelled from there according to my records in 1957. Actually, I just didn't follow their rules either. Joined the 101st Airborne and had 2 years of college finished in the first year.

Grad of Roosevelt 1955. Had a cousin who graduated from Chaminade in 1952 or 1953. He played football. One of his teamates was Faust, who later coached at Notre Dame for a short time.

Roosevelt was the first to close. My father attended there. I believe Wilbur Wright was next, then maybe Roth after that.
I think as of 2013 there is only Colonel White, Meadowdale, Dunbar, and Belmont left?

I graduated from Patterson in 1971. My sophomore year was the first year we had a football team, and in my senior year, I believe we tied for the city championship.

I too was a "trained attendant" at Miami Valley Hospital 65-66. I worked on 6SE(a surgical floor), did patient care (back then you got a bath and a freshly made bed every day), as well as temps and blood pressure checks and bedpans if needed. It was wonderful training for those going on in the field, I thought I was but found out I was more suited to work in a clerical field. I wish I would have taken accounting.

I was on 3rd floor, orthopedics. I too, did not venture into the field. Went for xray tech, but could not get the chemistry!

I can remember having to go to the psych ward several times when they called us. They had a special code for it, but I cannot remember what it was.

Did you ever have to do the 'on call' thing as a TA?

The psych ward was on 6 West but I don't know the code word. I was a "floater" occasionally, is that what you mean by being on call? Going to different floors when needed?

I did have to accompany a corpse to the morgue one time... I didn't eat any lunch that day. Such a swirl of emotions for this person and family that I did not know personally.

Fairview and Meadowdale have been leveled. My first grade school still exists, Longfellow Elementary. My Father went to that grade school also! We moved to the suburbs (Shiloh) in 1957. I went to a little school called Shiloh Springs Elementary which is now gone. Why? But then I am still amazed that they leveled the beautiful Dayton Library which was much like a castle and built some boxy little factory -like building. Fortunately I have the photos of all of them. Would love to have some interior photos though. Anyone? :)

An older thread, but interesting. For those who might not be aware, all of the Dayton High schools were able to be replaced by receiving hundreds of million dollars from the tobacco company settlement. How about a prize for anyone who knows who Thurgood Marshall was. The prize will be 64 Silver Dollars, and a secondary prize for anyone who knows the significance of a 64 silver dollar prize. Test those memories…..
