All Hail To You, Hail Hawthorne High
Welcome back Street Racers, Surfers, Hodads, and Low Riders to
the Early 60s
when A&W ruled on the south end of Hawthorne Blvd. and
the Wich Stand ruled on the north end of Inglewood.
In between was nothin' but
Cruisin' and Street Racin'. If you wanted to pull over between these
two ICONS OF THE DRIVE IN SET, then Frosties,
Taco Tio, Sallys, and a few other places that have faded from memory were your pit stops.
No one picked up any girls because no one knew how. Oh sure, all the
guys talked the BIG TALK, but no one had a clue.
My name is John Baker (Hawthorne High Class of 62) and this website is dedicated to all
the early 60s stuff that happened in and around Hawthorne and Hawthorne High School.
There's a page dedicated to our Favorite Teachers.
There's a "What's New" page to find out what's
been added to this Website recently, or the Alumni
List so you can find a classmate's email address. There's a Feedback
Page to find or talk about specific classmates, teachers, or any topic
that you deem relevant. You can add feedback by going to the Guestbook
Page. You can use this page in any of a number of ways. It's basically
to ask questions to the masses. In fact, you can click on any of the topics
up above to randomly bounce around the site. Please check back from time
to time as this website will be constantly changing.
I sincerely want to thank the City of Hawthorne and especially Tom Quintana, the Public Information Officer
for taking time out of his schedule to give me access to Hawthorne's photo archives. He and his staff are the greatest
and without them this Website would truly suffer. Thank you all.
