Hart High School | Newhall, California

(From left) George Harris, Hart High School principal from 1949-65, and C.M. MacDougall, longtime Newhall Municipal Court judge, greet Ronald Reagan, president of the Screen Actors Guild, at the school auditorium in the early 1960s.

Harris, in a June 2000 Signal interview when Harris was 90, said the occasion "was either '60 or '61, before (Reagan) was governor of California. I took a group of seniors in to hear him speak at the auditorium."

The Henry Mayo Newhall Auditorium at Hart High School opened Sept. 12, 1952. It was closed following the Jan. 17, 1994 earthquake and reopened six years later.


About Hart High: Hart High students were housed in 1945 on the Walnut Street campus of Newhall Elementary while the school was being built one block to the west. The new campus opened in September 1946, and it was the Santa Clarita Valley's only high school until 1968 when Canyon High opened. From the 1940s to 1968, students came to Hart from all over the SCV. (Agua Dulce was split down the middle; kids on the east side went to high school in the Antelope Valley.)
