OAKS - Volume 31
A yearbook is a yearbook is a yearbook, and by any other name it remains just that, a year book.
It attempts to place the year before its readers. And, mirabile dictu,
it takes just about a year to do it.
The 1965 Oaks was conceived last
April in the office of Miss Agnes
Renner when she announced the appointment of Don Miller as editor,
Chuck Pirrera as literary editor, and
Mert Hart as art editor.
From then till school's closing in
June was a time of planning. A
theme for the book was the first
major consideration.
The editors along with Miss Renner selected "St. Ambrose in the
Community" for their unifying principle. Then there were the usual
Editor DON MILLER directed the consistent schedule of copy production and
photographs to produce this 1965 OAKS.
