Humboldt - Del Norte League
How it started
The beginning of the original high school league was a result
of a motion made in the assembly of high school teachers at the County
Institute on September 22,1906.
- Two representatives, one from
the facility and one from the student body of each of the four high
schools met in Eureka for the purpose of establishing a League.
- The executive committee,
consisting of the above eight representatives began work on drafting a
constitution to establish the league for the county high schools.
- The constitution named the
league the "High School Debating and Athletic League of Humboldt
County." The Ferndale, Arcata and Fortuna student bodies adopted the
constitution as presented. Eureka High School did not adopt the league
constitution, until certain amendments were adopted.
- The Fortuna 1908 Yearbook
lists Mr. Inskip and Arthur Gates (student) as the Fortuna High School's
representatives to the league's executive committee.
The layout to rest of this section is still up in the air! I need
suggestions on how to set this up. I know we want to include the Commissioners
and their dates of service. Does anyone know of other items that are of
historical interest not covered here or somewhere else?
