Historical Sketch

The Lake Charles, Louisiana community organized the first Lake Charles Central and High School in 1890 at the site of the present Central School (809 Kirby Street). In 1893 John McNeese, the City Superintendent, authorized the splitting of the two schools and Lake Charles High School (LCHS) was born. As the community grew, the High School expanded - first to an annex building on the Central School site in 1895, and then to the Enterprise Boulevard location in 1903. The school remained at the Enterprise Boulevard location until 1983, when the school board merged LCHS and W. O. Boston High School to form Lake Charles-Boston High School.

The school sports teams chose the “wildcat” as their mascot. LCHS supported a variety of sports teams through the years, including football, basketball, baseball, golf, track, and boxing. The Wildcats particularly excelled in football, winning several championships. In addition to cheerleading and pep squads, LCHS also boasted a marching team known as the Kilties.

LCHS students enjoyed many organizations and activities to complement their academic pursuits. Student organizations included the National Honor Society, Student Council, Band, Debate Club, Drama Club, home economics and secretarial clubs, service clubs, and social clubs. During wartime, students sold war bonds and collected recyclables. Students produced a yearbook, known as The Pelican in 1913 and 1914, and later the Catalog. The student newspaper was the Wildcat.

In 2002, a group of alumni formed to create a memorial to LCHS. The group relocated the mosaic “Wildcat” monument, given by the Class of 1968, from the school to Lock Park. The memorial also included the sale of engraved bricks, a Kiltie statue, a plaque of alumni war casualties, and a plaque of principals.

Scope and Content Note

The collection is composed primarily of memorabilia collected by the LCHS Booster Club and donated by them and other alumni of the school. Included are publications, clothing, sports memorabilia, newspaper clippings, photographs, booklets, scrapbooks, artifacts, and administration documents dating from 1895-2003. The MSU Archives continues to collect materials from LCHS alumni and their families. The LCHS collection reflects the social customs, achievements, and defining events of the school and its students.

The collection is organized in series, described in the Series Description section. Newspaper clippings were photocopied onto acid-free paper and the original clippings were discarded. Duplicates of clippings and photocopied materials were usually discarded, but in some rare instances two copies were kept. As the collection continues to grow, new series will be added.
