1953 NOTRE DAME HS YEAR BOOK TELLS A STORY
Early in 2008, Museum Board member Gary Fredburg acquired a 1953 Notre Dame High School "Arches" yearbook that once belonged to Wilfred Luer Von Der Ahe Jr. The high school senior lived on Oakdale Lane in Studio City. Within the 55 year old book were two "ordination cards" commemorating Bill Von Der Ahe's ordination as a Catholic priest. Checking with Notre Dame High School, we learned that Bill remained a priest until 1968. He pursued agricultural projects until his death in June of 2002. He lived in Maraposa, California.
