HAMAKUAPOKO - A home movie taken in the 1930s that shows the Old Maui High School will be shown at the annual meeting of the Friends of Old Maui High School on Saturday at the old campus.
The 3-minute movie was shot by school Principal Arthur L. Harris, who was at the school from 1932 to 1939. At the time, the school had an enrollment of more than 1,000, with 30 teachers and staff. Many of the buildings in the movie, such as the poultry unit, music room, tennis courts and agriculture building, are gone.
Harris' son, David L., who appears in the movie as a toddler, donated the home movie to the Friends of Old Maui High.
A screen shot from a 1930s home movie shows the Old Maui High School. The movie shot by the principal at the time will be shown at the Friends of Old Maui High School meeting Saturday.
Alumni and the general public are invited to attend the informal event, which will include discussion of 100 years of Maui High history, the upcoming Centennial Celebration in 2013 and election of board members.
Beverages and a dessert buffet will be provided at the meeting, which will begin at noon.
