Members of the U.S. Naval cadet ROTC can be seen carrying the state flags as they walk toward the graduation procession being held at Birmingham High School's Tom Bradley Stadium. The name of one of Birmingham High's most famous graduates - financier/philanthropist, Michael Milkin- is partially visible on the track surface. Other famous people that attended Birmingham include: John Davidson, Lucy Arnaz, Sally Field, Bobby Sherman and Cindy Williams, to name a few. The school was built on the site of Birmingham General Hospital and was acquired by Los Angeles City Schools in the early 1950s for the token price of $1.00. It was founded in 1953 as a 7-12 grade combined high school, and became solely a senior high school in 1963. Photograph dated June 20, 2002.
