1967 marks the 75th anniversary of the Oracle. The first issue was published in 1892, and ever since that time students have read and enjoyed the Oracle. Times have changed, but two factors have remained constant -- Bangor High School and the Oracle.
When the Oracle was first published, the high school was in Abbott Square across from the present Bangor Public Library. The yearbook was then a magazine which came out monthly and had a June issue devoted to the Senior class. It was more literary than social, and it cost forty cents for one year's subscription. The last edition of the 1892-1893 Oracle announced a graduating class of forty-two students.
As the student body of the high school grew, the Oracle played an increasingly important role. This publication served as a link between teachers and students, for it was something that everyone had in common. Then came the fire of 1911, and the high school in Abbott Square burned. Spirits were dampened, but only temporarily.
