Our school newspaper was The Advocate, and here you'll find links to as many issues
as I can scan in as I have time. Check back in occasionally for new (old) issues.
I was Advocate Staff during my senior year, brought on board as cartoonist. But I'd been
severely bitten by the camera bug in my Junior year, and about halfway though my senior
year I found myself taking photos for both the Advocate and The Verdict, our yearbook.
Below are some of the shots I took in the Advocate offices, which I think were separate
from our Advisor, Mrs. Hoing's room. I'm still scanning through the tons of Woodward photos
I took back then, so from time to time I'll probably be posting new ones of our newspaper
staff here. If any of our classmates have some photos of the staff from those days,
please send them along and I'll add them here.
Vol 6, No. 9 - Thursday May 25, 1972
This was the last issue of our senior year. It has a great two-page
center spread containing quotes from nearly all the seniors on our
plans for the future.
Click on each link to open a page. These are large files (I had to
scan them in large or else the print would not be readable), so if you're
on a dialup connection some of them may take a while to load. In particular,
the file size on the pages 4 and 5 center spread is quite large. Depending on your browser
and settings, the image file may come up fit to the size of the window. You
should be able to enlarge the image to read the text. If you have trouble,
email me and I will try to help.
Pages 4 and 5 (center spread)
Vol 6, No. 1 - September 1, 1971
This was the first issue of our senior year.
There's a shot on the front page of some of the teachers sitting in
Frank Moran's mail truck (remember that?), a page three spread of the
new teachers who came to Woodward that year, and an editorial on the
school's namesake, Judge Woodward. We see on the Calendar that Sept 14-17
were the days that we seniors were scheduled to have our yearbook pictures
taken (I got a rare haircut that week to satisfy mom...), Sept 18 was the
GSA Car Wash day, September 25 our football team was hosting Einstein at home,
and the Pom Pon Coffee house was open, and September 19 was the Class of '73
"Slave Day" (If I'd only had nerve enough...).
