From the Mar-Ken 1940 Yearbook, as a Freshman:
GLORIA DE HAVEN (Born in California)
“Do Re Me Fa So La Te Do”
The above is what Gloria, known as “Glo”, sees in her sleep every night instead of sheep; for during the day she has studied hard to be a great singer and has sung up and down that scale over and over. But if your sleep is thus disturbed, we’ll try playing your hit tune favorites as a remedy, “Deep Purple”, and “All the Things You Are”, perhaps when we’re finished you’ll forget your worries and the dislike at ever becoming fat. Remember, you like clothes, and your hobby of collecting perfume is a pleasant one. And so we have Gloria, who between studying her favorite English, and seeing all of the newest shows, takes time out to tell us that her favorite book is “Rebecca”, and her favorite color blue – – the hue of her own pretty eyes.

Gloria deHaven received the Ninth Grade award for All-Around Achievement in 1940.
