South Gate High School


1930 through 1980

Enjoy your visit and visit often!

The original creator of was David Mandeville, Summer'56. David passed away on his 72nd birthday, October 15,2010.

David's idea behind this site was to make available biographies, photographs, and information of the alumni of the classes of Winter/Summer 1956. There were 460 graduates in '56. Their pictures from the yearbook and reunion books have been scanned into a data base. They are on that alumni's page along with any other pictures of themselves, kids, grandkids,email addresses, etc. Send any additions or corrections to me via email.
Please tell any and all alumni you know about
There will never be a charge here, unlike some websites you may have seen. This site is based on 1956, since this is the year David graduated from South Gate High School. David received feedback from some friends of classes '54, '55, '57, '58, '59, etc. and some from the 40's who would like to be included. Hence, there is a link to other classes that includes other alumni of South Gate High School.
So, sit back and enjoy a stroll through the galleries of pictures and bios of friends and classmates of 50+ years ago. Please take a moment to view the extensive "In Memory" pages. Special thanks to Doris Greathead/Edey who supplied many pictures and much information, which has helped in the creation of this website.  

It is my intention to keep this site intact the way David left it, as much as is practical.
