The Gecko Project: 1964 Gecko Yearbook

The American Community School 1964 Gecko Yearbook is now available for your viewing in our Photo Gallery.

As mentioned in a previous Post the digital yearbook files were contributed by American School of Vientiane, Laos alumni. Thank you ASV alumni!!

The yearbook was scanned and digitized a few years ago by an unknown (at this time) member of the ASV alumni group. Over the years it seems some of the files became out of order. Also, there seems to be some duplication of a few pages of the yearbook. This may have happened when the ASV Alumni Association website got corrupted a while back. I don’t have a hard copy of the 1964 Gecko Yearbook. So I am not able to go through the files to put them in proper order, remove duplicates, add possible missing pages, etc. Hence, I need *your help* to arrange the yearbook files into their original order.

How you can help:

1. The best way would be, if you have a copy of the 1964 Gecko Yearbook, to mail it to me so I can go through it page by page to make the necessary corrections in the current digital files. If you’d like to help in this way, please email me for mailing instructions.

2. Alternatively, if you have a copy of the 1964 Gecko Yearbook, and are willing to take the time to do a page by page comparison with the pictures located in our Photo Gallery, then email the results to me along with properly scanned missing pages, etc. it would be a big help to me. If you are willing to undertake this project, please email me for instructions.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Bob, are you still in need of a 1964 or a 1965 Gecko?


    • Hi Robert,

      Yes, I could use a copy of the 1964 Gecko first so I can compare it to the one provided by ASV alumni to fill in the missing and or out of order pages, etc. After that I’ll need the 1965 Gecko. But, hold off on sending to me until after Oct. 1st. I’m moving on Oct. 1st and don’t want to run the risk of your copy of the Gecko getting mis-routed by the Post Office during the move. I’ll email you after I’ve completed the move and I’m comfort the mail is flowing smoothly to the new address.

      Thank you so very much for your contribution. Very, very much appreciated! 🙂

    I was in Saigon from 1959 thru 1961, and attended 4th and 5th grades – I have copies of the Gecko yearbook for 1960 and 1961 – I’d love to scan them and upload the pages if you are interested? If you can provide a email/web location I’ll do that, thanks!

    • Hi, Bill and welcome to our Saigon Kids group. Great having you join us.

      The 1960 and 1961 Gecko yearbooks are located in the Photo Gallery (see left Menu area to get to the Photo Gallery). But, thank you for your kind offer.

    My family lived in Saigon for 21/2 years. We all were in the theater bombing. “List of the Adrian Messenger” starring Kirk Douglas . My father had us sitting in the balcony .My father saved me that night. I had gotten up 3 times to get candy for my brother and sister. Dad got mad and told me to sit down…….10 minutes later the whole place was a nightmare! My parents were on top of us. Yelling and screaming.
