Atomic Yearbooks

By Sablemable aka Jan

No, they don’t take off like rockets in the sky or explode; they just look that way!

Take a look at these high school yearbook covers that I found at e-yearbooks (www.e-yearbook.com).  Pssst!  The site is not free, however I gladly joined!

Angola High School (Angola, Indiana)



Santa Barbara High School ( Santa Barbara, California)


San Jose High School ( San Jose, California)


Riverside Polytechnic High School ( Riverside, California)


Ramona High School ( Riverside, California)


Poland High School ( Poland, New York)


Pacific High School ( San Bernardino, California)


College High School ( Upper Montclair, New Jersey)


Clay Township High School ( Peru, Indiana)


Arlington Heights High School ( Fort Worth, Texas)



Kudos to the students who worked on the yearbook staffs at these schools!  They did a fantastic job with the designs, didn’t they?

Do you have an atomic yearbook, readers?

    Very cool yearbook covers! I don’t have any, but you’ve got me thinking, because while I’m not originally from the Northern Virginia area, my daughter goes to Annandale High School, and their sports teams are the Annandale Atoms. I’ll bet they have some good yearbook covers.

    Aren’t those neat-o, Uncle Atom? I looked for Annandale HS yearbooks, but e-yearbooks doesn’t have it yet. Hopefully, they’ll get some.

    My dad’s yearbook from Benton Harbor Middle school was really atomic looking. that was sometime around 1961 or so. He Graduated from BHHS in 63′. I used to LOVE looking through his yearbooks. I was such a different world than what we have now. I have said many times I was just plain born in thw wrong era. *sigh*

    All of my yearbooks are kind of plain looking (BHHS grad ’72), but then again, everyone back in the early Seventies was moving away from tradional culture (except me!).

    I know what you mean about being in the wrong place at the wrong time, as there were things that I missed, too during the Fifties because I was just too young. You can only remember back so far, LOL!

    We must get together, Lorie, since we live in the same county.

    I would LOVE to get together sometime. E-mail me and we can set soemthing up. I am always looking for another retro lover to thrift with, LOL.

    BTW – the antique mall in Michigan city (near Wal-Mart) has a fair quantity of fifties/MCM style things. They even had a few pieces of Heywood Wakefield. You might want to check it out.
