Symbols and Songs

Welcome to the Casa Grande Union High School visual blog, covering the years 1964 to 1971. Most of the items are from Alex Jay’s (class of 1971) collection of high school material, from 1967 to 1971. Items before 1967 belonged to his sister, Mary, class of 1967. Issues of the student newspaper, Cougar Growl, dominate the blog. Performing, literary and visual arts posters, programs and publications are the next largest group. Posts will appear daily beginning August 18 and ending November 8; the schedule (subject to change) is below. Many of the blog items were donated to the Casa Grande Valley Historical Society, an organization worthy of your support. Please consider volunteering or donating money or personal items.
