Directory & Contributions

There was a child went forth every day,
And the first object he look'd upon, that object he became,
And that object became part of him for the day or a certain part of a day,
Or for many years or stretching cycles of years.    Walt Whitman

I exist as I am, that is enough;
If no other in the world be aware, I sit content,
And if each and all be aware, I sit content.    Walt Whitman

    Compiling this directory has been trickier than you might think.  (My mind is non-mathematical, and alphabetizing and counting are tedious, so watch out for stupid errors.  Well, that about covers all of my tail.)  When I began, I worked with just two sources at hand: The 1960 Lincolnite and the 35th Reunion Booklet, and I added a couple of names from memory (e.g., Bradley Fox).  Then, I requested and received more information from the 40th Reunion Committee, which sent an updated list of classmates, email addresses, and a copy of the graduation program (with special thanks to Pete Smiley and Jon Diers).  Let me know of other additions or corrections, including spelling corrections.  The alphabetical order uses ladies' maiden names.  Names of classmates married to one another are paired.

    The Commencement Exercises program lists 163 graduates.  It most likely names only those at the ceremony, excluding graduates who chose not to walk across the stage for their various personal reasons.  Also, I wonder if there were any graduates at the ceremony whose names were erroneously omitted from the printed Commencement Exercises.  The list presented here attempts to include all classmates.  I solicit your corrections and additions, as well as your patience.

    Determining other content of the directory & contributions page presents a greater challenge.  What should it contain or not?  I am comfortable publishing information that has appeared in the press or is publicly available through the Internet:  specifically, email addresses and Web site material.  If you have a Web site/page and want a link to it posted on this page, just send me the URL.  Some other information appears here as a result of brief search engine inquiry.

    I do not, however, feel comfortable publishing other career-related information and certainly not personal and family-related information without permission.  Yet, that kind of information is most significant and interesting.  So, there is the dilemma.

    It is appropriate for me to wait for people to give permission (or request) to publish such information.  Thus, if you wish any personal or career-related information posted, including geographical addresses, phone numbers, etc., let me know.  Also tell me if there is any new information you would like to present on this page.  Similarly, tell me if I have published something that you do not want on the Internet or that needs correction.  

The Class of 1960 Email Addresses to Date  Send additions and corrections for typos.  If you discover that a classmate obtains an email address and you email that person, feel free to send the Internet address of this Web site in case that person wants his or her email address here.  Alphabetical listing uses ladies' maiden names. Updated 6-21-01.

Links & Things

     Look for growth and development of new information as classmates submit their autobiographical sketches, anecdotes, memoirs, and other (contact?) information.  When that begins to happen, there will be a link, using a classmate's name, to a separate Web page devoted to that person's information.  This organizational strategy will prevent the need for endless scrolling on this page. Send name changes and spelling corrections.

     The Reunion Committee needs geographical addresses for some classmates.  "Addresss unknown" appears in this directory for those classmates.  If you know the geographical address of a classmate or have a lead on such a person's location, please email Pete (Ritchhart) Smiley or Jon Diers.  Send email addresses to Leigh Henson.

Gone

Everybody loved Chick Lorimer in our town.
         Far off
         Everybody loved her.
So we all love a wild girl keeping a hold
On a dream she wants.
Nobody knows now where Chick Lorimer went.
Nobody knows why she packed her trunk. . .a few old things.
And is gone,
                    Gone with her little chin
                    Thrust ahead of her
                    And her soft hair blowing careless
                    From under a wide hat,
Dancer, singer, a laughing passionate lover.

Were there ten men or a hundred hunting Chick?
Were there five men or fifty with aching hearts?
                    Everybody loved Chick Lorimer,
                    Nobody knows where she's gone.    Carl Sandburg

*  *  *  *  *

We have seen some
       suffering, baby.
It has not always been perfect.

After all this time
After all is said and done.

Darling, we know it
Whatever may come
We can get through it.

After all this time
After all is said and done.  The popular vocalist, Sade

* * * * *
And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.    A.E. Housman
