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.

September 16, 2016

Crawford beat Southwest San Diego last week by a score of 30-6.  Tonight's game is a 7 PM kickoff against El Cajon Valley High School.

Better late than never!!  Ginger Irvine Barnard forwards a snapshot from last year's Class of '60 reunion.  Lela Kerth Schlitz is on the left and Sabra Clardy Bordas is in the middle.

Here's the first Golden Anniversary Pacer for the 1966-1967 school year, the issue from September 15, 1966.

Phyllis Schwartz may have too much time on her hands.  While perusing her '72 Centaur she noticed that her pal Debbie Soper

is pictured among the Seniors on Page 199

and also among the Juniors on Page 157

This was news to Debbie also, but she lost her yearbook in a Nebraska house fire in 1977.  Says Phyllis, "Deb and I want to know: was it a prank? an honest mistake? Does she have an identical twin born a year apart?"

From Pomona to Ramona.  Mary Jane Rogers, Bob Richardson, and Facebook's mysterious Nancy Jane all went to work researching the life of Horace Mann Principal C. Russell Henzie.  Bob learned that "Buddy" Henzie was president of the 1935 Pomona High Student Council and Mary Jane found a 1990 Los Angeles Times article in which Mr. Henzie tries to save the 300-year old oak trees on Highway 67 near his horse farm.  I'll try to put all of this together at a later date.

Here's a puzzlement.  Jana Ditmars forwards an obituary for Barbara Jean Naish, age 83.  The article said she graduated from Crawford.  Her little sister Patricia Naish Johnson '59 DID go to Crawford, passing in 2014. I'm guessing the oldest Crawford graduates might be pushing 75, so Crawford probably was still dirt when Barbara graduated.  Maybe she went to Hoover.

Vern Bowman sends sad news.  His little brother Dennis, from my Class of '62, passed away September 7th from Lou Gehrig's Disease.  Wrestling victories for Crawford and Coach Frank Smith were among Dennis' happiest school memories.

Edell "Del" Kelley Henry '63 died of cancer September 6th.  A Memorial Service will be held Sunday September 18 2016 at 1:00 P.M. at Foundry Church 60 N.W. Foundry Avenue Bend Oregon 97701.  Click HERE to leave a message.

The Class of '67 Reunion Committee just learned of the belated passing of their classmate John Hearst on October 28, 2012.
