To maintain the memory of Mt. Lowe Military Academy, its history and lore, by building a place where, thru comaraderie, former cadets and staff can share their experiences for the enrichment of all.
Mt. Lowe Military Academy, operated by "Major" Dargin (Dargin, John Hayden, b. 1897, d. 1961, Hollywood Forever Cemetery), and later by
"Captain" Gruber, and located on Palm Street in Altadena, California, has lasting memories for hundreds of former students. The school, closed long before Internet access became a reality, has been a target for much interest, nostalgia and questions by former students. This site will present all information and photos which can be located about Mt. Lowe, and we will also provide a web-based location for information, questions and answers to be shared.
