"Jack's Treasures": Original Source Material from Jack and Lucille Naughton's Personal Collection!

We have all heard the saying 'it's not what you know, it's who you know", right? Well, we are very lucky to know Lucille Larrivee Naughton ---for a lot of reasons, btw---- but for a new reason today. In response to our discussion in here the other day about seeking original source materials from the 1963-67 years at SBHS, Lucille sent me a box she refers to as "Jack's Treasures". (Jack Naughton, for those who may not know, is Lucille's late husband, whom we all knew as Brother Christopher, back in the day.) The box arrived today. "Jack's Treasures" is a scrapbook of photographs, show programs and newspaper clippings from 1964-67, personally preserved by Jack. You will recall that Jack was the Dramatic Director and Lucille was the Music Director of the plays presented during that period at SBHS! The major productions those years were: The Music Man, Oklahoma, and Annie Get Your Gun, with other, smaller productions interspersed. It is the veritable Motherlode of information on that particular facet of SBHS life and times! It is going to take some time to catalogue, scan and present all of this here,---- but it is coming, folks!---- so please be patient. Here is a little taste of things to come! Now we need to find that Motherlode of SBHS sports material for that same period! Who's got it?  ;) N.B. Most of the pics are Polaroids, and they have faded somewhat over the past 50 years. Haven't we all?  ;) Merci beaucoup to the late jack Naughton for preserving these memories, and to Lucille Larrivee Naughton for sharing them with us! Wow!  ;) Much, much more to come!

Kismet! How could I NOT post this one?  ;) Sr Lucille Lucille Larrivee Naughton) Music Director, and Br. Christopher (the late Jack Naughton) Dramatic Director.

The Shield October-November 1963

Ok, boom!  Here it is, The Shield October-November 1963 Issue, cover to cover!

Who's That Lady?

Since we haven't yet identified the lady in the pic with Betty Garvey on the First Day at SBHS, here is a little help. The first pic is the lady in question; the second pic is a close-up of Lavina Ferraro, which appeared in the very same issue of The Shield. Are they one and the same person? So, boys and girls, the question is..... "Who's That Lady", with period correct accompaniment from The Isley Brothers. This version was originally released in 1964, but it was not a hit at that time. The song was then updated and re-released in 1973, when it became a smash hit. Check it out:
