Describe your middle and/or high school. Was it a large or small student body? Is the school still in existence today? How has it changed since you went there?

Dad went to Loyola Academy in Chicago from fall 1942 until he graduated in spring 1945. At the time he attended, it was an all-boys Catholic school in the Rogers Park area of Chicago, on the campus of Loyola University (which Dad also attended). The school was founded and still in Dumbach Hall (built 1908) on the university campus when Dad was in high school.
The school is VERY different today. In 1957, it moved to nearby Wilmette, and in 1994, it went co-ed, merging with a nearby all-girls Catholic high school.
