Calling All Mount Vernon Jr. High Alumni

A ONE-TIME ONLY GRAND REUNION for Mount Vernon Junior High School (currently known as Johnny Cochran) and its elementary schools for the period of 1930 through the1950s will be held on July 29, 2012, at the Sportsmen’s  Lodge in Studio City.

Mount Vernon opened in 1926 and for many years was the pre-eminent Junior  High School in Los Angeles.  Alta Loma, Arlington Heights, Burnside Avenue, Cienega, Marvin Avenue, Queen Anne, 6th Avenue, 24th Street, Virginia Road and Wilton Place sent their students to  Mount Vernon.

The Reunion Committee is seeking to find copies of the Tribune News-Advertiser, a weekly newspaper in the ‘40s and ‘50s, that published articles about the people, businesses and schools in the greater West Adams neighborhood.  Also sought are Mount Vernon graduates, memorabilia, pictures, local histories and other historical information from these neighborhoods during this era.
