Class of 1968, BS in Chemical Engineering
Bruno is our fourth dog in the last 30 years. He is now about 11, and we adopted him from Grateful Dogs Rescue when he was about 2 years old. He has the run of the house, is a total mooch and is thoroughly spoiled.
In September, Phil and I traveled to Munich, Dresden, Leipzig and Berlin. In 1932 and 1933, Phil’s father lived in Germany and studied pathology after graduating with his medical degree from Johns Hopkins. We took photos at many of the same places that his father did. The bombings of WWII damaged or destroyed many of the buildings, but the restoration has been remarkable.
Here are two photos: one of me, Phil and Bruno visiting the Agate View Petrified Forest in April 2017 [at the top of the page], and another of Phil and me in Berlin in October 2017.
In October, we celebrated the 60th anniversary of Catalina High School in Tucson – which I attended – and the 10th anniversary of the Catalina High School Foundation.
UA’s first woman chemical engineering graduate, Marylyn Tobey, was in Catalina High School’s first graduating class in 1957. The honorary co-chairs were Hal Ashton, 1958, of Ashton Construction in Tucson, and Paul Gray, 1960 Catalina and 1967 PhD Arizona, former dean of engineering and provost of UC Berkeley. Professor Gray is a good friend of Catalina and the University of Arizona.
Unlike the middle class, college prep environment of the 1960s, today Catalina is smaller and serves as a magnet school for children of foreign-born parents. In the last 10 years, the foundation has awarded $179,359 in scholarships, grants and school purchases.
