Pictured: Dave Pearson, 1950
Dave Pearson is a longtime resident of Fort Worth, Texas. In 1950, he
graduated from Arlington Heights High School as a mid-term graduate
and was voted by his classmates as most popular. Since then, he has
amassed a large collection of school-related materials, primarily
yearbooks and directories.
In the late 1960s and 1970s, Pearson worked to restore and preserve
the historic Steam Engine Number 610 which was built in 1927. He
established the 610 Historical Foundation and served on the board of
directors with Amon Carter, Jr. In 1976, the 610 was used to pull the
American Freedom Train through Texas as a part of the United States
Bicentennial celebrations. The 610 is now a part of the Texas State
Railroad Museum in Palestine, Texas.
