Camden High School has a long and distinguished history. Many of its graduates went on to careers in public service in the city, to success in business, sports, and in the arts. As time goes by, I will be adding pictures, news articles, and other material about Camden High School.

If you have any material that you would like to see posted on this page, PLEASE contact me by e-mail.

We, the members of the Purple and Gold Committee, do submit with pleasure, this interesting edition of the yearbook of the January Class of Nineteen Hundred and Thirtytwo. In planning this yearbook, we have tried to present our life in Camden High School as nearly realistically as possible, and we hope that in the future you will receive as much pleasure from its contents as we have had in planning it. .

The President's Message to the Graduating Class


We are ending a great era in the course of our young lives. With this happy and eventful ending we leave our friends, advisers, and our dear Alma Mater behind. We are facing that period which will be the basis of our future life. 

As we go into this period, we meet the monsters of Time and Destiny. We follow them, all clinging together, perhaps looking for something to grasp, something to which we may hold for our future strongholds. Together and courageously we face this wide and spacious world. 

Let us pause for a moment and try to recall those happy and joyous days we spent at Camden High. Do you not recall that happy Sophomore year? Being called rookies? Looking at our upper classmates in amazement, trying to picture the day we would be there too? Do you recall that relief we felt on the successful completion of the Junior year? Those proms and school parties, the plays and programs? If we could but relive those days! And at last, we entered our Senior' year. We tried to convert ourselves into dignified young people. We tried to show our newly gained superiority. The "results were disheartening. We were still the same people we were in our Sophomore and Junior years, perhaps a little more serious but not drastically changed.

However, our high school life is about over. Our life here has been successful and happy. If we go out to face the trials and hardships of the world with the spirit imbued in us here, we shall surely be successful in combating every demoralizing force we have to face. So, once again I say, let us all clasp hands and, with the right mind and spirit, face this spacious and hard world together, brushing aside all obstacles and barriers, to gather at the top once more, the successful '32's of our high school days. Au revoir and good-luck. .
