Immaculate Heart High School is a private, Catholic, college preparatory school for young women grades 9-12. The school is located in the Los Feliz neighborhood in Los Angeles at the intersection of Franklin and Western Avenues. The campus was owned and operated by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who had founded Immaculate Heart Convent, College and High School on their 13-acre property in 1905. Its leaders in the 1950s and 60s included Dr. Anita Marie Caspary and renowned artist Corita Kent who led a much publicized rebellion against the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in 1969. The college closed in 1981 due to financial difficulties but the middle school and high school continue to operate on the original site.
Photograph caption dated April 21, 1964 reads "Immaculate Heart High School mothers and daughters will present a luncheon and fashion show at noon, April 30, in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. More than 1,000 guests are expected to attend the event, which will have 'Cherry Blossom Time' as the theme. Models will be 12 students from the senior class. Among them are Karen O'Connell, left, Rose Bevanda and Pat Freedman, all Valley residents."
