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.

THE NEWLY-REMODELED WAFFLE SPOT had its Grand Opening yesterday.  I suspect that Nancy and I will check it out this morning, icky weather permitting.

I have the Class of '66 on a May-May billing cycle for the quarterly newsletter, so regular subscribers from that class should have gotten their reminder.  Click HERE if you've been thinking about subscribing and want more information.

Dave Sleet '61 is looking for annuals from his three years at Crawford.  Email him at if you have any suggestions.

I think Johnny Downs went by "Johnny Jet" earlier in his career.   Here’s my certificate for being a "Clean Your Plate Club" member from Johnny Jet back in 1954 --  Norm Black ’68

Norm Black '68 attended Marshall Elementary in 3rd Grade when he lived at 5343 Streamview Drive. The family then moved to the Territory of Hawaii for a year and on to Memphis, Tennessee. The Black family returned to San Diego and Norm was part of the first 8th and 9th grade classes at Pershing Junior High. Then it was on to Crawford and, after that, San Diego State.   Click HERE to see an enlargement.

Mike McKittrick '60 shares a couple of postcards from his days working at Mickie Finn's.  You can actually spot him in the middle, left in white sleeves, black vest and straw hat.  Click HERE to go to the Mickie Finn's Page and see both postcards enlarged.

Frequent contributors Sharon Cramer Sceper '68 and Bob Richardson '61 pose for a photo at the Sceper Ranch and Museum in Hayfork, California.  If I understand this correctly, Bob made the trip from Sacramento because they are both interested in genealogy -- and may have had ancestors who lived in the area.

Having worked with many reunions, I think the Class of 1970's choice of Marina Village for its function on July 25th is outstanding.  Committee Members Denise Daniels, Jane De Bolt Blackwell, Rene Hansell Clay, Kris Pruski Wood and John Pacheco pose for a snapshot.

Rick Cohen '66 sends word of the passing, on April 21st, of his classmate and friend of longstanding, Mark Kessler.  You'll want to read Mark's heartfelt memorial on the Class of '66 Obituary Page.

Linda Parker Smith '70 has passed away, according to her friend and classmate Linda Knott.  Private services will be held today.
