The following item is from the Summer 1913 Blue and White, the yearbook of Los Angeles High School.

Alumni Reunion

The year 1913 is a notable one in the history of the Los Angeles High School, for it is the fortieth since the school was founded. For forty years it has been sending forth noble manhood and womanhood that have proved factors for good in almost every sphere of activity and have brought honor and prestige to their Alma Mater. To celebrate this anniversary an Alumni reunion will be held in the latter part of June when graduates of every class from 1875 to 1913 will be present. Active preparations are on hand to make this event a great success . . .

. . . Our school is proud of its alumni. The Alumni Association numbers many hundreds, and the S. '13 class will swell this total by over three hundred more.
