Alma Mater

The Galt Area Historical Society is searching for the author of Galt High School's Alma Mater.

Who wrote Galt High’s Alma Mater?

The last page (before advertisers) in the 1957 Galt High School yearbook has the Alma Mater printed for the first time in this yearly publication. Students and alumni sang the school’s “anthem” after school events like football games and graduations, but who wrote it, and when was it written? Class of 1956 alum Avalon Mansur’s name and grad year appears after the words to the iconic verse. Did she write it, and was it in 1956? Maybe she wrote the Alma Mater earlier. If anyone knows, contact the Galt Area Historical Society’s resident historian Dan Tarnasky at
