It was a silent reel-to-reel movie of my high school's activities in the early '30s. Maine Township High School (as it was called in those days) in Park Ridge, Ill., still sports a beautiful 1929 red-brick art deco facade. Notable alumni include folk singer Steve Goodman (class of '65) and actor Harrison "Harry" Ford (class of '60), who broadcast basketball games from the booth of WMTH-FM in 1959. In my day, Maine Township was known as Maine East, and it had a reputation for its multiculturalism. There must have been over a dozen ethnic and national clubs: Polish Club, Korean Club, Indian Club, Filipino Club and so on.
