The Gecko Project

The Gecko Project appears to be do-able. Between several of you, we have copies of the Gecko for the years 1960 through 1965 evacuation copy.

As I recall ACS was started in 1958. Anyone have info on the history of ACS, or know where history of the school could be located?

I was there in 1959. I don’t recall there being a 1959 year book. Does anyone else remember?

I’m going to ask this same question in Friday’s newsletter. But, thought I’d ask here also.

How many of you would be interested in having copies of all the year books available for download as eBooks?

Please leave your comments to this post, with your views, opinions, etc. regarding this project.



PS: Thank you to all of you who have agreed to share your copies of the Gecko for the project. Much appreciated!

    I, for one, would love to have access to the 61 and 63 Geckos in the hopes of puting some names to faces in photos that I have but no longer can remember the names, and yes, I am embarrassed to say so, especially as they are young ladies of the ’60s. Life is sooooo difficult. Ken

  • Hi everyone!

    This is so fun and I am loving every minute of it. My Mom’s house burned down a long time ago and I have lost all of my Gecko’s I would love to have copies of them. I’m like Ken and need to put names to faces. The old memory is not like it once was!! All my love to all of you and it is great reading all your comments.

    Hi Guys,

    I have an excellently preserved copy of the 1963 Gecko and a second copy that has Dorothy Malone’s name on it. I can’t remember why except my mom worked as an advisor and she was a real pack rat. I would love to see the 1964 Gecko.

    Hello everyone,
    I have the 1962 and 1963 Gecko with many signatures and “memory” notes throughout. I have been out to Virginia to visit my mother and away from the blog. I sure like to see all the names and find out what you are all doing.

    Kenny, you are still so funny! Thanks for sharing your “fight” with the squirrel.

    I’m taking my mother and two of her friends to West Point on Memorial weekend to observe the 70th reunion of my father’s graduation – class of 1938. I have a neice there, Caroline, who is graduating in 2009. She is in the 7th generation of graduates in an unbroken line in my family. Quite a history and my mother wants to show her off to the rest of the widows and grads of 1938.

    Best to you all,

    Maile Miller Doyle

  • I have the 1964 Gecko. The hairstyles are really something, especially my own (gag). I’d love to see the 1963 Gecko.
    I can be contacted at lesax@comcast.net

    ALSO>>> Mary Edwards Wertsch, author of “Military Brats, Legacies of Childhood Inside the Fortress,” is writing a new book about military brats and is looking for brats to interview. She can be reached at: publisher@brightwellpublishing.net

    Drop her a line and let her know if you’re interested.

    Hi there,
    My older sister Patricia Nguyen and I were in elementary school @ ACS and recall our time there with great fondness. My (now 81yo) mother Mit worked in the library.
    We would love to have access to all the Geckos.
    I just saw Video #2. Fantastic! Loved it.
    Thank you!

  • I would love to have Gecko yearbook access too. I lost most of my yearbooks of various schools in multiple Vietnam evacuations. ebook yearbooks would be very cool!
