In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

The Wildcat Newspaper Staff of 1958

Considering how much communication media have changed over the years, I thought it might be interesting to think back on how many people were needed to prepare and publish a high school newspaper. We did not have desktop publishing then and designing the layout and preparing the paper for type set in camera ready copy was a real chore. Judy McKellar, bless her soul, did most of that as editor, with our help.

Is it not incredible that the paper was first produced in 1925? There was no word processing then, for sure.
