2008: HAMILTON HIGH: The "Golden Years"

This is the title page of the "ASTOUND!" multimedia presentation which I presented to the public at Hamilton High's 75th anniversary celebration a few years ago. For at least 10 years, I have been sorting, choosing, scanning, and adding to this presentation so that at the present time it is quite lengthy (about 30 minutes) but quite interesting. I have arranged the program chronologically from the establishment of the school right up to the mid 1950's, where I encountered a serious gap in my yearbook collection. "Astound!" software is similar to Powerpoint, but has animation features which I don't find in Powerpoint. Unfortunately, "ASTOUND!" is obsolete. I will be working on converting the program to Powerpoint. It will be a very long and tedious process. The "Golden Years" presentation is "open ended," which allows me to add material as time permits. If and when Hamilton Township is able to once again support evening community programs, this will be projected on screen on the huge Kuser Mansion theater Cinemascope screen.
