Commencement Brochure - 1938 - Harvard School - North Hollywood, CA - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by Gary Fredburg - 2008
22 fresh faced boys graduated from Harvard School in June of 1938. Two months earlier, the dictator Benito Mussolini had ordered his goose-stepping troops to invade Ethiopia. It is hard to imagine that these boys, with their quasi-military training would not soon find themselves in the turmoil of war. By 1941, many of them would be nearly finished with college.
With the youngest of these graduates now 85 or 85, they are likely now gone.
The Museum of the San Fernando Valley collects, and cares about, the history of Valley students and schools. Share your old yearbooks and commencement programs with future generations.
The San Fernando Valley deserves a great Museum of history and culture.
