The Historian, Tom Anderson ('52), is responsible for collecting and
maintaining information and
memorabilia of Venice High School and the Alumni Association. This includes a collection of yearbooks,
the Gondolier, (though we’re still missing some), the Association’s newsletter, the Acclaim, photos,
newspaper articles, and much more. Due to space limitations, large objects are photographed for the
collection and the originals are donated to the Venice Historical Society.
