Title: Lincoln High School [Portland, Oregon] Yearbook 1952 Cardinal

Description: Stiff covers. Cover material is somewhat brittle and the corners are chipped. Signatures appear throughout, but pages are otherwise clean. 111, [1] pp. 11.25 x 8.5 inches.

Two notable athletes are featured: the senior Swede Halbrook (NBA center) and the freshman Jim Grelle (Olympic runner).

The opening sports page is signed by Halbrook and the basketball pages feature many photos featuring him (he is also featured on the track team in a group photo and individual photo of him doing the high-jump). Harvey Wade "Swede" Halbrook led the Cardinals to a state championship in 1952. He went on to play for Oregon State University, was five season with the Wichita Vickers (AAU), and two seasons in the NBA with the Syracuse Nationals (1960-61, 1961-62). In the 1961 playoffs he led the Nationals to a 3-0 sweep over Wilt Chamberlain and the Philadelphia Warriors, but fell to Bill Russell and the champion Boston Celtics. At 7 foot, 3 inches tall, he was the tallest player to have played in the NBA up until the 1982 draft.

Jim Grelle has been inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame, the Mt. SAC Relays Hall of Fame, and the Oregon Ducks Hall of Fame. He was a middle-distance runner who competed in the 1500 meter at the 1960 Rome Olympics (placing 8th) and at the 1959 and 1963 Pan American Games where he won the silver and gold medals, respectively. There are a few pictures of him in the track section (regular track team and cross-country team). The cross-country team took state in 1952.

Yearbook includes portraits for senior and junior classes with full names. The sophomore and freshman classes also have individual portraits, but are identified by last name and first initial. Also includes many photos of social clubs, sports teams, and various social events, with virtually all photographs identified with names.
