This Junior High yearbook has many photos of Edward Olmos! Take a look at the index. There is also one classroom photo on page #14 that "I believe" is Edward Olmos (last pic, second boy from the teacher) which is not in the index, take a look at it and tell me what you think!
I am a huge Battlestar Gallactica fan myself and it is so cool to see him as a kid in all the groups and clubs he was involved with, I have included a couple of his photos, but not all. Junior High yearbooks are much harder to come by than the High School ones.

This yearbook has no inscriptions!
Cover is a little dirty, that's about it.
Fantastic photographs showing the students and faculty in activities, sports, and candids. Some great pictures of the school and the area.
I would be happy to check the yearbook for a name if you like, simply send me an email!
