For people who attended Crawford High School or would have attended if they hadn't
moved -- or just have fond memories of San Diego in the '40s, '50s and '60s.

IT'S STILL DARK IN PACIFIC BEACH, but my heater has turned itself off and we're supposed to have a day that's warm and sunny.  Nancy's still hoping for Eggs Benedict at Green Flash, parking permitting.  Last Friday we had the Western Potato Scramble at Good Time Charlies.

Steve Brownell '64 has added a remembrance to the Faculty Obituary Page under the photo of his mom -- Senora Frances Brownell, or Archibald, depending on when you had her for Spanish.  She died in her sleep on Christmas Eve at the age of 101.  Click HERE to go there.

I'm not sure what I was doing on May 11, 1962, but Ann Roskos Roffelesen '63 was attending what I assume was the Hoover Junior Prom featuring The Nomads.  Click HERE to check out the program.

Speaking of Hoover High, remember when it, and all of San Diego's secondary schools, were multi-storied and brick?  This is the Hoover I recall, although the photo actually appeared in the 1932 Dias Cardinales yearbook.

Stan Keniston '66 sends word of the death of his classmate Chuck Gilbreth on April 18, 2012, while riding his bike on Montezuma Road.  Click HERE to read a U-T article about prosecuting the driver.

Speaking of the Class of '66, this photo leaped out of the Centaur.  I thought at first it was "tongue in cheek". but Mr. Juel's overhead projector might welll have been "the latest in audio-visual equipment" in 1966.

Click HERE to read the February 10, 1972 Pacer.  The Winter Baseball team featured a young pitcher named Chuck Rainey, who went on to some repute with the Boston Red Sox.
