The Past is Prologue


Over the course of the 1969-1970 school year, seniors in a newly added elective course undertook an ambitious task: creating a historical record of the Demonstration School's first 55 years. The name of the course was "American Problems," and the instructor was history teacher Leland R. Johnson.
