    Photos From Jim Morrison’s Freshman Yearbook 

    In 1958, Jim Morrison attended Alameda High School in Alameda, just south of Oakland, CA. I have never read any books about Jim, so this may be old news to some. Either way, I hope you like the post.

    The freshman class only had group photos of their homeroom included in the yearbook. I guess that individual portraits were also taken, but they are not included in the yearbook.

    Jim was also on the Junior Varsity swim team. This photo is a lot clearer, easy to see him.

      Thank you for posting these vintage photos of Jim’s high school days! I’ve never seen them before, what a treat! I have read that he was an expert swimmer so I guess it makes sense he was on his school’s swim team! 🙂

      Wonderful pictures! I’ve never seen them before either. Thanks. No One Here Gets Out Alive is one of the best bios I’ve ever read.

      Hey there John, If you need any help with Jim Morrison updates etc.. I have done so much extensive research on him. I have done personal interviews as well with an original employee from the Canyon Store back in the late 60s who remembers him coming in ALOT. I know alot of places in LA other than what you have posted that you may be interested in just driving by.. I have read over 20 books on him. I don’t sign on alot anymore but you can email me if you like.

        Krislyn, have you read John Densmore’s book from 1990? It lists a lot of addresses and places where the early Doors lived, played music, partied, where their friends lived/worked, etc. I am going to look up those places later in the week and make a blog post!

      That would be Stevie Nick’s & Lindsey Buckingham. Probably pre Fleetwood Mac.
