Montgomery Village MD 20886-1303 Electrical Engineer, Realtor Married 3 East & West Hill, Belle Sherman Got through Cornell and the Army by '69. Moved to DC suburbs of Rockville & Montgomery Village, where I still live. Married Francie in '76. Instant family with 3 sons, the eldest is now 50 this year. Made my living designing & testing military radio receivers and systems. As 45 rpm records have become obsolete, so have discrete receiver designs. Today our cell phones have multiple receiver-transmitters as well as powerful computers built in to our cell phones. My final projects involved designing, building and testing Satellite hardware. EO1 (Earth Observing 1) is an experimental satellite on which I completed designs, and tested the proto-flight hardware. Since 2005 I have been assisting Francie in her Real Estate business. We still assist clients in buying and selling homes in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC.

Gainesville FL 32603 Professor Emeritus-University of Florida Married 3 Cayuga Heights Teaching math!!; In addition to my teaching at the University of Florida, I was a grad student at Rutgers for 5 years (where I was a teaching assistant), I taught at Northern Illinois for 2 years. While at Florida, I took two sabbaticals: one at Tennessee (Knoxville) in 1979-80 and one at the University of Kentucky in Lexington.
I like canoeing, hiking, and camping.  Son Greg and I have had a blast recently fishing with grandson Zachary (4 years old).  At Blue Springs (on the Santa Fe River) last weekend he caught 8 blue gill, each about 3 inches long.  
 
On the IHS side, I think about the impact my teachers at IHS have had on my life.  While all my math teachers were excellent, Miss Stenson, Miss DePew geometry and trigonometry), and Miss Neighbours gave me the basics few of my students saw until they were ready to graduate from college.  While I only had about 6 weeks of calculus with Miss Neighbours, it was just enough for an overview of the big ideas.  The basics I learned at IHS served me well as a math major at the University of Wisconsin and Rutgers.   
 
 
I also loved taking Latin from Mrs. Ernstein (who taught French to my mother) and Miss Sicilia (two years).  Miss Sicilia was bossy, opinionated, and judgmental, but I loved her.  She always lectured us that our job was to study hard.  She hated Benjamin Franklin and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  She thought Franklin was a scallywag, who was always looking out for his own interest.  (She claimed he was cutting deals with the British, while working for Independence.  She also hated his quote: "Honesty is the best policy because she thought you should always act honestly even if it wasn't in your best interests.  I don't remember the reasons for her distaste for FDR, but I am sure his love affairs and politics didn't sit well.)  While it may sound odd, Miss Sicilia was also helpful in my math career because she taught me what a conditional sentence is.  (Every definition and theorem is a conditional sentence.)

Williamsville NY 14221-3850 Court Reporter Married 2 Henry St. John, then Boynton Jr. High After graduation from Alfred State College, I began a career in court reporting in Buffalo, NY, first in the free-lance field, then in 1973, became a Supreme Court Reporter until my retirement in 2002. Now I'm back to free lancing on a part-time, as needed basis which suits me just fine. I was active in the NYS Court Reporters Assoc for many years, was on the Board of Certified Shorthand Reporters for NYS approximately 10 years, ending up as Chairman for a year.
I met my wife, Helen, also a court reporter, at my first job, and we have been married 43 years the end of October this year. We have two married daughters, Karen and Kristen, and three grandsons.
I credit Eve Firra, my shorthand teacher at IHS, with giving me many of the tools that have helped me to succeed in my profession. So many things she taught me I have passed on to other colleagues and students along the way, as well as to my children and grandchildren. She was a real taskmaster but always had an eye for success in her students.
Along the way, I have enjoyed cooking, baking, gardening, reading, needlepoint and cross-stitch, growing African violets, travel, listening to opera and classical music, as well as being active in our church. We travel to Florida every March for some rest and relaxation as well.
Hard to believe 50 years has passed. Kudos to all who have worked on the reunions over the years and to everyone who has developed this website. I'm sorry I can't attend the reunion this time, but I'll be thinking of all of you. I'm sorry to hear of the classmates who have passed away all too soon. It's been fascinating to read where life has taken so many of our classmates. It has been and continues to be quite a ride, but one day at a time we keep moving on, waiting to see what's around the next corner.
I'll never tell.
