This site provides a repository for the "Cubberley Catamount", a student newspaper that was produced while Cubberley High School in Palo Alto, California, was in operation.In 2007, the Cubberley buildings still look very similar to how they looked in the late 60s, although they are now being used as a Community Center.
The documents are mostly scanned PDFs, which are usually searchable, although occasionally characters and paragraphs get misinterpreted by the OCR software.
The site may be expanded to include the annual yearbooks "The Totem", and perhaps other documents relative to the history of the school.
If you have suggestions or comments, especially as to what I might want to note as "significant events", please use the blog feature.
