Sixties yearbooks online one day?

Hello Ankara folks. I don't know if anyone else is like me, but I'm getting to the point that I can remember many of those long lost names but I'll be darned if I can see the face, so to speak, that goes with it anymore. I keep thinking how great it would be if I had a yearbook, but mine have long since disappeared.

Anyhow, I was thinking that in this modern computer age it would be çok uzel if we could get the site to put the yearbooks online. Otherwise, as perhaps a way to raise funds for the Ankara reunion organization, they could put yearbooks on cd disks and sell them to the alumni over the web...I know three cd yearbooks I'd buy tomorrow if they were available.

While I'm here I'd like to say hello to Nancy Gilbert ('71) and Maria Hace (Haskell '71). If your're out there...hello girls, hope your're well.

Does anyone know whatever happened to Debbie Woods? I saw her once, thirty years ago, in California.

Take care all,

Eric Mowrey '71

The yearbooks on CD is a great idea. I might have to hook up my flatbed scanner again. I have 66, 67 and 68.

Marilyn, thanks for the posting. I recognize a few of the names - probably big brothers and sisters of my class of '65 classmates. I don't know what it would take to put yearbooks on line but it's a great idea. Mine have also disappeared during the moves over the last 4 (!!) decades or so.

We do plan to scan the yearbooks and make them available on the AnkaraAlumni.net website. We've been working on locating the missing and updating the Ankara Alumni Directory -- prepping it for a mailing on December 11th......then we can start on the yearbooks. We have most of the 60s readily available - but we may need help with copies of the 50s and 70s. Anyone with a yearbook, scanner and time is free to volunteer to help! Mike Morrison '64 has already been volunteered for the early 60s - but all other class years are open!

You should check with our alma mater. I think that they have copies of all of the yearbooks in the library.

Other than surfing, I am basically a computer illiterate. I do have the '54-'55 and the '55-'56 yearbooks (called The Turkish Towel back then) that I could send to someone to scan or have someone lead me step by step through scanning and sending to somewhere.

Lets talk about your yearbooks. Between you and I and maybe somehelp from someone, we ought to be able to do something.

As I was buying a yearbook each year, I don't think I ever realized how important they would be later. They've served to keep a lot of memories alive over the years.
