A BACKWARD FOREWORD
I trust that the weird looking Crosby High Class of 1959 alumnus who has authored this site has caught some of the spirit of old Crosby High, and especially that of the great Class of '59. Let us hope that when you scroll through its pages, you live again in memory those golden days when you were young and beautiful - when all the world was gay and responsibility was far in the future. May each page and image recall the face of an old pal, perhaps an old sweetheart, a deed of derring-do on the gridiron or basketball court, a game won or lost, a party at which you "could have danced all night".
Indeed, those glorious days are no more; they fade and grow dim with each passing year, but I am certain that the pages of this site will bring back happy memories, and as you dream of the things that were, you will be moved to smile, or perhaps brush away a tear.
Let us also venture the prayer that, when you view the pages of this site, you will find here the faces of many who have written high their names in the achievements of their city and their country, and of whom it may be said
"They came here to learn, They left to serve"
