1959

Today I received an e-mail from Classmates.com inviting me to preview a Dorsey yearbook. Of course I couldn't resist the opportunity so I clicked on the link and was taken to a web page that had the cover of the 1959 Circle on it. Besides this year, there were 1950, 1951, 1980 and 1984.

I started clicking through the pages of the 1959 yearbook ("annual" as I always called them). What immediately struck me was how many white folks were in there!

As with most things in life, you don't get something for nothing so after a few pages I was met with an ad inviting me to sign up for membership so that I could view the remaining pages, and all the pages of the other yearbooks.

Tempting, but not tempting enough, even the cheapest membership at $15 for 3 months.

I did run across a couple of my teachers who were there back in 1959:




And here's a couple of other pictures I snagged and posted for your nostalgic entertainment. I don't know any of these people.. maybe you do:

Mademoiselle Clementi was a trip. I really enjoyed her. I ran into Donna Mukai yesterday. I wonder if that was her aunt?

Well I've gotten into the habit of not responding to most of the comments, in large part from being so busy but I did have to respond to this one. I saw your comment to Donna on Classmates. I didn't really know her; I didn't get the comment you left - you wonder if Ms. Clementi was Donna Mukai's aunt???
