1961 East High Yearbook

I uploaded the Orient 1961. That is the yearbook for East High School in Rochester. There were pictures of 337 seniors that graduated in June and another 13 that graduated in August. Then 7 seniors didn’t have a picture. No pictures of students in the under classes except if they were in some sports or activities. One of the class of 1961 was Gordon Urlacher (right) who was Chief of Police from 1985 – 1991. In 1992 he was convicted of three counts of embezzlement and one count of conspiracy for stealing police funds. Also in this class are twins with the surname of Suttera and a girl and a guy with the surname Sutera who appear to not be related.

This yearbook was originally property of one of the seniors so there is a lot of writing. I did erase the three pages of text that her boyfriend wrote as it was a little too personal.

The binding was tight on this yearbook and it made it difficult scanning some of the edges of the pages. As a result, you may notice that some text along the edges looks compressed.

Rochester Public Library has yearbooks for East High from 1904 to 1940 on their “School Heritage Collection” web page.

  1. I enjoy these yearbooks so much, Dick. For me, I just HAVE to look at every single picture. Found one for a former next-door neighbor.
