Harvey Dack “Harv”

Born: 6 June 1921, Toledo, Ohio
Died: 29 November 1991, Santa Barbara, age 70

From an April 1938 Mar-Ken Journal:
•The school was very deserted April 11, when the ninth grade met together for a picnic and bicycle ride. Transportation to Mulholland Dam was provided by Harvey (Speed) Dack and Jack (Poke) Moran. There were many escapades during the picnic what with Peggy Steward falling off mountains and Jackie Morrow bumping off his bicycle. At 4:30 p.m. the picnic broke up with many, many, sunburned faces and arms – – a good time was had by all who attended.
•Harvey Dack is a columnist for the school newspaper, the Mar-Ken Journal; he wrote a column titled “A Life’s Dream Destroyed” Ex-Empress Zita and the Archduke of Austria.

From the December 16, 1938 Mar-Ken Journal:
Whoops, shouts, and laughter mingled with the loud, hoarse cries of the barker greeted the students of our school indicating that the Carnival Game booths, food booths, and fun concessions met the eye on all sides. Here was Buddy McCallister, barking for the “Kiss Booth” – – the kisses being Betty Hainey and June Ross. Hal Belter “barked” for the Carnival attracting visitors to Florence Halop’s “Raffle Surprise,” Kingston Deat’s “Raffle of a Xmas Tree,” Harvey Dack’s “Wheel of Fortune,” and Ray Sperry’s “Darts and Balloons.” Marilyn Gates watched the finances, while the other girls and boys helped with the food booths and such. Throwing-of-Rings formed another popular booth.
The students of the 11th Grade worked hard to make their affair a success, and according to attendance and cooperation, it was!

From the Mar-Ken 1940 Yearbook:
From Toledo, comes Harvey Dack. He likes Irish Stew and convertible Buicks, but gets rather bored with sophisticated girls. His favorite song is “Star Dust,” which is also not a bad picture! “Harv” likes to travel a great deal, and his ambition is to become a “college grad!”
