Bill Johnson ‘62

The class of 1962 was provided with a "Senior Shed" for smoking cigarettes on school grounds. Times have changed.

One of my fondest remembrances of Jesuit is that we were a close knit family. The camaraderie still lives today. I still stay in touch via email with classmates. Jesuit offered us a Catholic education and taught us to be good, Christian men who would help each other. In addition, it had high academic standards. The senior steps were hallowed...

The beanie was fun but the seniors seemed to have the most fun with them. They would knock it off your head and then put it back on for you. The only problem was they would turn their senior ring upside down and slam the beanie back on you. I think most of the freshman class had bumps on...

March 2013 We were all very thankful to Bishop Lynch for asking the Jesuits to set up a high school in Dallas since there was not one here for boys, only Ursuline for girls. This time was pre Vatican II and the Jesuits wore the Spanish black robe in all classes which I liked and I wish they did it...

Michael J. Sweeney ‘ 64

I car-pooled with Mike McCarty and Steve Ramsey. I remember in 1963, driving to Oaklawn via Central Expressway from Richardson one morning. We were all studying for something. Mike was behind the wheel of a new Pontiac Lemans (with the shifter on the dash). He was looking over at my book studying when rush hour traffic came to its...

Memories of Integration

Jack Harper '58: I am a 1958 graduate and was a classmate of Charles and Arthur. In thinking back about it I am rather surprised that it was not really a big issue with the students. It was all very natural and I guess I was unaware of what a groundbreaking situation we were involved in. I remember a few...

David McGowan ’69

Just some random reminiscences: I think junior year was all about becoming seniors. Wow! Seniors got to punish freshmen for perceived insubordination; seniors got to use the senior doors, seniors were kings of the senior patio. Mostly, seniors had their own smoking lounge out by the handball courts. Actually I didn’t even smoke but the idea of a smoking lounge,...

Howard Davis ’60

"Yes boys, St.Valentine is a member of my Family Tree. My forbearers were from England, serving as Officer in the Colonies against the Rebels. And during one of the armed conflicts my Ancestor caught sight of a Rebel fleeing among the trees. He lifted his rifle, drew aim, cocked his piece, AND SUDDENLY THE REBEL’S HAT FLEW OFF AND...
