                    ARE YOU A FAN OF "DOO-WOP" ?

THE FIFTIES PRODUCED A NUMBER OF GREAT "DOO-WOP" GROUPS AND WE WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE ONE AT ANACOSTIA HIGH SCHOOL. "THE BOBOLINKS" SANG THEIR WAY INTO OUR HEARTS BACK THEN AND, WITH THE ADDITION OF SOME BACK-UP MUSICIANS, THEY CHANGED THEIR NAME TO "THE MEMORIES" AND 
CONTINUED PERFORMING IN THE D.C. AREA FOR MANY YEARS. AT LAST CHECK, THEIR WEBSITE WAS DOWN SO, WE ASSUME THAT THEY ARE NO LONGER ACTIVELY PERFORMING.

As of 6-20-19, I was no longer able to access the Memories website. Please e-mail me if you have information on their current situation.

What comes to mind when you hear those words? Of course it's the huge Curtis Brothers chair that stood in Anacostia for many years. It was torn down some years ago but was replaced with a new one in 2007.  Mr. Charles Wendell Curtis, the man responsible for "The Chair", Passed away in March of 2007. See "Obituaries" section below.


  ANACOSTIA SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
                                               WASHINGTON, D.C.
THE  CHAIR .....
In the mid 30's there was a visionary couple who saw the need for a new Jr.-Sr. High School in Southeast Washington, D.C. They began a letter writing campaign to Congress that, after much additional effort, produced Anacostia Jr.-Sr. High School and eventually, Kramer Jr. High School. The couple was William J. and Phyllis E. Plemmons. Their daughter, Patricia (Plemmons) Lambert, AHS '61, has some pictures and copies of documents pertaining to the founding of AHS. Pat's brother Jack graduated from AHS in '39, her other brother Robert graduated from AHS in '44.

                            Elaine Kilbourne, our beloved teacher who passed away on June 14, 2014, was both a                             mentor and an inspiration to many of her students. She taught at AHS from 1948-1968,                             Wooten HS from 1980-1994 and the University of MD from 1968 to 1979. Guy Toscano had                             a paver, inscribed to her memory as a dedicated teacher, installed at his Alma Mater, the                             University of MD, at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center, Moxley Gardens, Paver G2.

                                               May she rest in peace and in the hearts of those who loved her.
