THE DEMISE OF
BLUE MAX
Yes he is gone. What once was a symbol of pride and honor to us, was thrown into the school dumpster like some piece of ordinary trash, by a school who no longer cared nor cherished what he stood for. Yes he was in need of some tender loving care, and we offered to pay to restore him on 2 different occasions, and each time we were turned down. They never took him to games anymore and they even stored him in the janitors closet, as if were something to be ashamed of.
Maybe the trashing of Blue Max was for the best, for today's James Madison is totally different from the Madison we knew. It has a new building hiding the old one, a new marque out front and maybe worst of all a new reputation that Blue Max would not have wanted to be a part of.

THE HISTORY OF JAMES MADISON JR. SR. HIGH SCHOOL
This information comes to us from the schools website at http://hs.houstonisd.org/MadisonHS/SchoolInfo/history.htm
On September 8, 1965, James Madison Junior-Senior High School was opened for 2,003 students, 793 of whom were Senior High School Students. By the end of 1967, Madison Junior-Senior High had reached an enrollment peak of 2,700. In January of 1968 the Junior High School population was transferred to the newly-opened Dick Dowling Junior High School, and at that time James Madison Junior-Senior High School became James Madison Senior High School. In the fall of 1981, the student population of Madison was extended to include the ninth grade; the enrollment during that year reached a peak of 2,236.

In the fall of 1965, the faculty and students of Madison were welcomed to their beautiful new school by Principal Arthur D. Herring, Assistant Principal Dr. Dale H. Perkins, and Dean Rosamund Glosup. These administrators, along with the teachers, students, and members of the community, determined the policies for the new school. The Marlin was selected as the school mascot, the school colors chosen were blue, white, with a hint of red.

Mrs. Carrie R. McAfee assumed the the duties of principal in 1974.
