#OTD-ish Tuesday 27 February 1968 The Douglass Junior High School Parent Teacher Association met with Principal George Galloway. The meeting was held at the Carter Youth Center, located behind Douglass (Stanton & Pomeroy Rds SE). 

Principal Galloway is the one on the left in the center gesticulating with his hands. Ronnie V. King, a member of the Southeast Neighborhood Advisory Program, is in the center sitting at the far head of the table. 

Please comment below. Were you a member of the PTA? Did you attend Douglass? Do you remember the youth center? Do you remember Principal Galloway? Do you recognize any one from the photo? You may comment privately here.
