An invitation to our Commencement
Here is where you are encouraged  to add photos reflecting our class' history. We've come up with a series of albums. You may wish to have us add more. Let us know if you'd like additional titles. Need help? Just attach a jpg picture and email  our photo editor, Al Simons, at: Identify the people in the picture, the time, place and anything else you might remember. PLEASE, notify Al if you are able to identify individuals whose names are missing from existing photos or who may be misidentified in existing photos.

Graduating members of the IHS Class of 1960 may
be identified  with an asterisk (*) in some photos - for example: Marty Malarkey*. Please recognize that lack of such association or identification of class members (or errors thereof) in any photo is purely circumstantial and is subject to editing. Al S.

Pre-High School Photos

Here's where you can submit pictures from our pre-high school years. There were several public and parochial schools in Ithaca that provided the educational foundation that led us to a place "stately 'neath the sloping hills..." where we found our high school's towers.

High School Years

Dig through those trunks. Look at those old scrapbooks and photo albums. Do you have pictures from our high school years?  Here's the place to submit them. There were clubs, sports, music and drama events. There were also proms, assemblies, field trips and parties during those years. These were all "photo ops" that someone just may have recorded for this occasion!

Memorabilia - Clippings - Artifacts

Remember those old newspaper clippings? Did you save any of the programs from dances, games, plays? How about the numerous handouts we received in school. You get the point. Here's the place to submit images of these.
