Welcome to the Har-Brack Union High School Class of 1957 website!

Thank you for visiting.  The purpose of this website is to document the history of the Har-Brack Union High School Class of 1957.  It was constructed by Ray Olszewski, Class of 1957 and is complimentary.  Ray has been a webmaster for the past 7 years and has created several websites.  This site's "home page" provides many things which I hope you will find useful and interesting.  This is your website and if you find missing information or would like to contribute additional information, please do so by contacting Ray by email. 

I have organized the information contained in the website as follows:


  • Welcome! Provides a brief introduction to the information contained in the site.  You are reading it.


  • 2012 Reunion Plans.  Alice Smith Gordon who lives in Tarentum, PA is the 2012 Reunion Coordinator. Ray Olszewski has offered to assist her.  If you want to help, please contact Alice. 


  • Class of 1957. This page provides images of the classmates who graduated in 1957 and are contained in the 1957 Tiger Year Book. The images were scanned directly from the year book, formatted, and labeled with names obtained from both the year book and the "Thirty-Third Commencement Class of 1957" phamplet which was handed out at the June 4, 1957 graduation ceremony at Har-Brack Campus.  Additional sources such as mailing lists from previous reunions provides a wealth of information about where classmates are or were located.   Collation work continues of different sources to identify those classmates who were not listed in the yearbook but had moved away prior to our graduation in 1957. 
  • Missing Classmates. Click here to take you to a page dedicated to identifying those classmates who are missing.  The "wanted posters" were provided by fellow classmate Syl Zembrzuski.  If you know where these missing classmates are located, please send their contact information to Ray at:  ROlszewski@aol.com. 


  • Past Reunions. This page contains information which was held in Ray's personal files he has collected over the years. Classmate Williard Anderson has created a personal Har-Brack website which can be found by clicking here. Will has collected a significant amount of information that can be found at his site.  The two sites compliment each other.


  • Links. With the advent and popularity of the internet, a number of interesting websites have emerged.  I have listed some of them and if you have others that would be useful, please send them to me for inclusion.


  • Blog.  This is a work in progress.  The purpose of the Blog would be to share information about classmates or anything else such a memories, new information learned, etc.


  • Sign-Up to be on our periodic email list.  This is an automated email management system that facilitates the capture and management of your contact information.  Keeping it up to date allows for making contact with you about our future classmates and reunions as well as addition of historical information.  
  • Where is everyone?  If you click here, this link will take you to where everyone is located using a map.  It is a lot of fun to use and who knows you just might have a Har-Brack classmate for a neighbor. 


Again, thank you for visiting and we look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at the 2012 Class Reunion.
