Blue Devil Moment!


A wonderful celebration was held last week in the Davis Senior High School Armstrong Library. Here Principal Tom McHale, students and other administrators join members of the Class of '57 for the class donation of a reproduction of a painting called “Blue Devils on 5th Avenue” to the school. The original painting by George Luks was painted in 1918 to commemorate an event which took place on April 30 of that year when a contingent of French Army veterans marched in a parade in New York City to help promote the sale of Liberty Bonds. These soldiers were members of the Chasseurs Alpins (Mountain Hunters) who were trained in mountain warfare and defended France in the mountainous parts of the western front. They were popularly known as The Blue Devils. Their uniforms were mostly blue and their adversaries called them blue devils for their tenacity in battle, a
nickname that they readily adopted. The Class of '57 donated the reproduction as "a way of teaching and/or reminding everyone associated with Davis High about the history of our mascot." Money was collected and used to purchase the print and get it framed. The surplus contributions were donated to the school to support the Academic Center which provides tutoring services to Davis High students.
