"What a wonderful surprise to get your message and to see all that's been happening.
"Steve's "brute force mailing" did find its mark and the information listed for me is correct. I will find my way through the Registration process and hopefully be "onboard" soon.
"I have great interest in attending the 45th and should I relocate to Connecticut in early spring I would be very available to help with the "event management". I have been fortunate to return to Wellesley a few times each year and it truly is amazing the memories each of us holds. Dottie and I went to a little brick elementary school house at the end of her street. It was a bit surreal to drive back and find only a grassy park in its place. I was also surprised and saddened about the classmates we have lost.
"In looking at the Rocky's "Horror Show" picture Parker is the guy in front holding the banner. As for the mystery man; does the name Brent Lathbury strike a familiar note. Maybe someone will know."
Unfortunately, we had to tell Frank that JHB had already figured it out, and that he didn't win the $100. Next time, try Hialeah.
This note is hard to describe, and we cannot post it as written - unless you can turn your screen on its side and upside down. As best we can make out, here's what it says:
"Subj: SNAPSHOT (TO KEEP OUR CLASS REMEMBERED, CONNECTED AND UP-TO-DATE per 10-20-02 letter from Webmaster)
"Date: 11/04/02 10:54:08 AM PACIFIC DAYLIGHT TIME
"From: *no computer* KIDDOO, NANCY AKA DEFINITELY FOUND
"After speaking to you & discovering how computer illiterate and naive I have been been to the "NO RULES" out there on the world wide web - I'm attempting to catch up before it's too late for me! You asked for a recent picture and I thought it wise to send you one & give you my blessing, as you share it with our Class of '58. As you can see, I'm still alive & kicking - I'm still known to show some good spirit - as to that "flashing smile", well, what do you think?! I haven't changed a bit ... How about you?
"... I have an idea for the Class Web Site. It has been very hard for us to lose the friends we are now losing - and for me - this reminds me of the life we have left to live and maybe we can, as a class, find a way to celebrate it a bit together. We share on the internet our address, phone number and e-mail address - what about including our birthday for those who may want to send b'day cards to friends we are "finding" after all these years? I mean - our ages aren't really a secret - since we all went to school together & it might be fun to do - Bob Gallerani informed me several years ago that we had all become "Old Farts" and there are a lot of funny b'day cards out there for old folks these days! We seem to be a class that can do anything & this might be another way to stay connected on a regular basis - by using the internet to post b'days on each person's class list Ladies aren't supposed to TELL their age but since you have the Tattled Tales I'll begin by giving mine & you can share this picture as my recent birthday picture - my b'day is 11-10-40. I am writing this note in this fashion to you as a reminder that some people still communicate by SNAIL MAIL!!! Since NO RULES apply, please let me know if you posted my picture on our web site. Keep up the good work. [smiley face]"
Before posting this work, we asked our Webmaster what to do about it. "Yep, she's got us, all right," he said, "No-computer-Nancy sent us a repro of a painting of a leathery old woman of the old wild West - we can't print it without getting endless copyright releases from the legal beagles. Then she used a whole bunch of hard-to-print font faces, and wandered all over the pages - right side up, sideways, upside down, and - get this - the coil spiraling down to the end! People would break their necks reading it on the screen. Anyway, just type it in the best you can. Admit it, she beat us." It took us a couple of hours to get it posted. We'll write Nancy about the missing picture.

November 5, 2002
While we were working on the Brejcha story, our lawyers advised us we may have misprinted some information about the Nominees for Class Offices. Also, they believe Bruce Ramsey, Esq is representing the group, or is, at least, their spokesperson. Surprised by these findings, we assigned our reporter, WB, to follow up.
Since Tattled Tales was informed the nominees had been meeting at Ramsey Castle, WB went there. Upon arrival at the Castle gate, WB found a couple of burly guards posted there, liveried in the Ramsey style. "What do you want?", one of them said. WB told him he had a message for the nominees. They asked him whether he had authority to be admitted. WB stammered, "Well, I don't know ...", to which the guard said, "Then, you can't go in; go away!" The persistent WB, standing his ground, retorted, "Maybe you can deliver the message inside?" "What's it all about, let me see that!" the guard demanded. WB gave him the note. The guard put it in a machine near the gate, which shook and rattled for a minute, and then spit it out. He said, "OK, No Bugs. Let's see what it says." He read,
"I hope you've all seen the film, DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS, because I think I get to play Steve Martin's role in the WHS scam. You know, the idiot brother, Ruprecht.
"So, I plead being slow and cantankerous, in only now recognizing I have completely botched your honorable Estates.
"I finally realized today that JUDGE Martha W Copithorne is something nearer to the truth for her. But I hestitate to guess the true nature of things with Mssrs Ramsey & Gulliver. So, I hope your honors, you would enlighten me as to exactly how I should address you?
"Lucky me, I'm in California, hopefully out of reach of your worthinesses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and State of New Hampshire, so I can ask this question at all.
/ss/ Editor, Tattled Tales
The guard snickered, then told WB, "OK, we'll do you a favor and take it in, now go away! Get lost!," brandishing his nightstick. Scared, WB ran off.
WB went to the hospital, where Battaglia was being treated for a couple of broken ribs and broken nose. Battaglia was told about Priscilla, Dick Emerson and our memo. He asked WB to send a message to Ramsey, which he couldn't write, so dictated this:
"To the Honorable Mr. Ramsey:
"Dick Emerson and I have plotted nothing whatsoever. Your nomination was duly seconded by Michael Gray.
"The only intriguing question is whether you, Ms M Witherell Copithorne and Mr W Gulliver propose to handle the class offices in a suitable manner.
"And, would you kindly explain that to us commoners in language we can understand?
"I take it this means you do not refuse."
Taking leave of Battaglia, our reporter made a copy of his missive (reprinted above) and returned to the Castle with some trepidation. There, the guard was even more brutish, snapping, "What are you doing back here!!?" "I have another message for the nominees or whoever is in there," WB bleated. The guard snatched the paper out of WB's hands, ran it through the machine, and read it. "OK, I'll deliver this one, too! Now, get the hell out of here. Out! Out!", thrusting his nightstick toward WB. WB left in a hurry.
"I cannot help it if my simple writing is hard for some to understand.
"On the other hand, your recent messages reveal that you, Citizen Richard (Emerson) and, perhaps undisclosed others, are operating as a self-appointed COMMITTEE ostensibly for a high purpose such as Liberty, Equality & Fraternity.
"Under the cloak of authority and mandate of the above, you have advised me that I cannot decline the nomination because Citizen Michael (Gray) seconded the nomination.
"The COMMITTEE's nomination process bears a striking resemblance to the French Revolution and the process of selecting candidates for the guillotine (which reminds me of a guillotine story, but I will save that for another day).
"My questions is, does your COMMITTEE plan to provide the nominees with blindfolds, a glass of wine and a cigarette if they are elected?
"(for Judge Martha, Bill the Counter and himself) "
WB said, "It seems like a very conciliatory letter to me, but what do you think?" Battaglia was irritated. "Look at their demands: A cigarette! What honest citizen can afford that anymore, after all the taxes those high muckety-mucks dumped on butts. It's a sinful poor tax all right. And, then, they want wine, too! The rich just keep on sinning, doesn't hurt them a bit. What good's a blindfold going to do them, anyway, when they've been blind all these years to the plight of the working class? You tell me! They don't even deserve the guillotine, which costs us a pretty penny to sharpen, every time after it passes through one of their thick necks ..." Seeing that Battaglia was making an unexpected recovery from his wounds, but was still lashed to the bed, our reporter walked out.
On the way back to Tattled Tales' offices, an informant stopped WB on the street, with this story: Mike Gray had tried to charter a boat out of the country, but the Coast Guard boarded it and has him under detention somewhere. He is being questioned, but we don't know about what.
This turn of events was clarified somewhat, by a scribbled note delivered surreptitiously to our editorial offices:
"I don't recall seconding Bruce's nomination, but then again maybe my short term memory is not as good as my long term. Whatever, it wouldn't make any sense to not withdraw it because then it would be duly withdrawn and that wouldn't be right either (there's a Catch-22 in here somewhere).
"In addition, my limited experience in trying to get Walter [WB - ed] to change anything can result in something that's worse than the first version.
"With all of the above in mind, I refuse to withdraw the seconds that I didn't make for Martha's and Bill's nominations.
"Now, the most important thing to keep in mind is that their candidacy is now in the public domain and that they cannot not run nor not accept the nomination without a vote of the citizenry. Since this may prove to be an obstacle, I think that each of them should put forth a platform on which to gain public support.
"Do I hear any seconds? "
So, it appears Mike Gray did second some of the nominations, but may be worried about the Ramsey reach, or the alleged Battaglia faction.
Checking our records, we found that Arthur Young had originally seconded the nominations. But, kudos to our reporter WB for recovering Mike Gray's confession, despite Gray's attempt to delete the evidence.
Tattled Tales assures its readers that we will continue to cover this growing story - which we uncovered! - of political intrigue and clandestine operations.
November 4, 2002
"Would be happy
to be on the list of WHS Class of '58. My wife and three daughters are now
living on Long Island in the village of Plandome, and I get up to
Wellesley frequently, to visit my mother in Needham, and other family and
friends in the Boston Area.
"In light of your notorious reputation for intrigue and cabal, it's obvious that you and Dick Emerson have conspired to create a public enemy target list and disguise it as a nomination for class officers.
"With all due respect for our departed brethren, the duties of office for our class are clearly life-threatening. Because of this, Martha, Bill and I need to ponder whether our family obligations can allow us to accept your kind??? nominations.
"On the other hand, we are very concerned about Priscilla who must feel like she is on the endangered species list.
"We will confer about your insidious proposal and analyze security requirements that will be necessary.
"In the meantime, if there is any funny business, just remember that we know where you live!
"(for Judge Martha, Bill the Counter and himself)"
Is some sort of negotiation going on among the nominees, unknown to Tattled Tales?
November 2, 2002
Not totally French, yet, despite a LIFETIME in Paris, Dorcy writes,
"Dear Steve, Walter, and Dottie,
"The Oregon Slug made it to France! Steve, your letter addressed to the
Cape was forwarded by the South Chatham post office to my niece in
Norwell. Since you put "Please forward if necessary" on the envelope, she
sent it on immediately to me here in Paris and I got it a few days ago. I
was just about to answer today when I got your letter, Walter, addressed
directly to me here.
"Congratulations on the website - I spent hours reading it. But it was a
shock to see how many classmates are no longer here....
"Dottie, I recently came across the letter you had sent about the last
reunion. I had never answered since it got to me when it was already
"The address and phone in South Chatham are correct and I will be there on
and off until end of summer 2003. When I am there I will find my old
photos and will send some on to you - I know I have one of Hardy School
kindergarten or first grade class!"
Last month, the HOT PURSUIT TEAM contacted or located Barbara Barry Nealy, Sarah Battilana Wian (who hasn't told us her Vermont address yet), David Beal, Curtis Blinn, Linda Burdick Strauss, Robert Eldredge, Paul Farnham, Julia Graham Allen, Nancy Kiddoo, Gary Lapham, Marcia Leahy Crago, Frederica Matera, Ann Maynard Brodzinsky, Robert Metzler, Howard Pritham, William & Joan Silvano Tobin, Beverly Swain Ellis, Theodore Villa, Linda Wilson Dillman and Carolyn Young Worthington.
There are still over 45 classmates out there on the run. We use various techniques to find missing classmates, including searches of public records, phone books, GOOGLE, etc. But, the most effective method remains personal acquaintance with relatives and friends. PLEASE take a look at the MISSING PERSONS list (on the Class List): If you can tell us anything about those who've lost their way, it would be helpful (Send e-mail to Dottie, Steve or Walter).
finally gave myself a break and went through the entire site and read
everything. I am so impressed with the whole thing. It was great to read
all the bio's and hopefully we will get more. I love seeing all the other
pictures from the yearbook on there too, I like seeing all the other
things that our class was doing back then. We certainly have a very well
educated class and we have all kept busy doing exciting things through our
whole lives. Maybe we all have not reached our potential yet, but we are
all certainly doing our best.
Our reporter interviewed Webmaster Walter Battaglia about this report, who exclaimed, "You see, it's just like I told you! There is a groundswell of support for my Chairmanship. And, after I'm made Chairman, Dottie - and the other officials - will have to give me a Gold Star every day!" As Battaglia launched into a tirade on Party loyalty, our reporter ducked out for another appointment.
November 1, 2002
We haven't been able to get anywhere near the other nominees yet.
So the Class election campaign begins.
NOTE: NOMINATIONS ARE IN ORDER UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2002
October 31, 2002
This seems to put the Kabosh on Kings and Queens, but where does it leave citizens of this Republic? What with an election in the offing, Dottie wants to know "what exactly are these people [the class officers - ed] going to be doing?" A very good question, one that Tattled Tales thinks should be answered.
So, the Tattled Tales CANDIDATE CHALLENGE: Let's hear it from you, the candidates, just exactly how you are going to fulfill the duties of your office. And, anyway, what are the duties of your offices? We will report their views, or the lack of them, as soon as we know them.
How very sad that we have lost three of our finest--and rejoice that we
still have Priscilla. As for Walter's suggestions [nominations - ed], I
offer a hearty second. Martha Witherell, because I invariably (and
alphabetically) sat near her and benefitted from her wisdom on all
subjects; Bill Gulliver, a friend from the ole neighborhood, and whose mom
was a terrific lady; and Bruce Ramsey, a member of my church, and with a
great gift for contagious humor. Let's draft 'em all.
FURTHER NOMINATIONS ARE NOW IN ORDER UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2002.
October 30, 2002
Send in your LIST - it need not be a list of the entire class. All it takes to win is proving Mike wrong on anyone in the class, except the young lady.
CURRENT STAKES: MIKE OFFERS TO PAY THE FIRST ONE TO PROVE HIM WRONG; HOWEVER, EACH OF THOSE SUBMITTING WRONG GUESSES WILL OWE MIKE THE DRINK OF HIS CHOICE.
Does anyone want to improve the odds?
And, remember, Judy Hammond Blatchford offers $100 to the first who can prove the boy in Rocky Memory is NOT Brent Lathbury.
So, HURRY UP check those photos and your memory carefully. SUBMIT YOUR ENTRIES BY E-MAIL, subject: SENIOR MOMENT SWEEPSTAKES. Your IDs must be clearly stated, and you must put your full name, address and phone number on the memo to enter.
Staff and employees of Tattled Tales, and contest judges, are ineligible for this contest.
If you want to be a SWEEPSTAKES JUDGE, please e-mail Tattled Tales right away.

"Well, I am a Washington political reporter for The Washington Times and a syndicated newspaper columnist, but I do not "regularly report on the Pentagon and military matters," though occasionally write about these things. Mostly politics, policy, legislative battles, the White House, etc. and whatever else happens here in Washington. But what's this "far right" and "ultra-conservative connections" spin stuff in that item? Do I detect a left-wing tilt in Tattled Tales?"
As we told Don, we checked the WT, which had him reporting on the Pentagon and military matters, in addition to his other exalted duties. We haven't written to the conservative WT about their inaccurate reporting.
Since Tattled Tales is dedicated to fair and impartial reporting, here are Don's own words about his work:
"Well, you are right, I certainly admit to a conservative perspective. But
I've written a lot over the years about lots of political issues, and, as
a reporter, written as much or more about liberal ideas and their
champions. I've interviewed most of them and supported some of their
ideas, like Moynihan's push for lower payroll taxes and personal
retirement accounts and the Democratic Leadership Council's ideas on
trade, etc. and countless interviews with people like Ron Brown,
Lieberman, Rangel, Gephardt, Daschle, Terry McAuliffe, etc."
Then, Don finally tells us what is really important:
"I loved reading all the ultra-gossip and getting caught up on what people are doing ..."
Now, if Don can only give us a scoop or two on the real goings-on at the White House: A little class LOYALTY could put Tattled Tales on THE MAP!
Marcia says she's flying to Burbank later this week for her sister's 65th birthday. Burbank is just a few miles from H-wood. Is this just a cover for some new starring role? We doubt it's just another Universal Studios tour.
Now things have just gone too far! Walter refuses to be a Queen, won't run if nominated, and will not serve if elected. Sorry, Dick.
We haven't heard from Dottie about being King or Queen. whichever, for a day.
However, WB might accept being CHAIRMAN, if that guarantees sales of the soon-to-be-published work, Collected Thoughts of Chairman Walter. It will be handheld size, bound in a pink cover. Who says we are not on the capitalist road to socialism here?
To get things going, here are Walter's nominations:
MARTHA WITHERELL COPITHORNE, ESQ for PRESIDENT. Martha is well qualified for the office. She has the major virtue of being an EXTREMELY laconic resident of the famously taciturn New Hampshire. Alumni need not fear being harangued too much, or being subjected to exhortations such as those of Chairman Walter. But, Martha is not a pushover, so we can expect strong and effective measures in fulfillment of the duties of the office. On the other hand, Martha is far enough away in remote NH, that we need not fear the intrusion of Class Government into our lives.
BRUCE RAMSEY, ESQ for VICE-PRESIDENT. As a former Class President, Bruce is acquainted with the duties of the office. As a lawyer involved in financial matters and Estates, Trusts, etc, we are sure he understands the fiduciary requirements of the office. We think he is especially well suited to keep an eye on any shenanigans of the other officers entrusted to spend our money wisely.
BILL GULLIVER, CPA for TREASURER. With passage of Sarbanes-Oxley, we have some reason to believe accountants wouldn't dare cook the books. Our fears are further allayed by the simple fact that, at last count, the Class Treasury balance was $0.00. Of course, if anything untoward happens, we are confidant that Bill is willing to take a dive, as he loves the Ocean.
NOW LET'S HEAR YOUR NOMINATIONS FOR CLASS OFFICERS.
AND YOUR SUGGESTED DATE FOR THE ELECTION.
October 26, 2002
As previously reported, Steve Kenney's OREGON SLUG MAIL pulled the heartstrings of Jeremy Chapman, Karl Christianson, George Frangoulis, Sally Kemp Scammon, Don Lambro, Gary Lapham, Frederica Matera, Bruce McCracken, and Staunton Oppenheimer.
Now our HPT follows up and adds to the list of FOUND: Marcia Leahy Crago, Merrilee Dyer, Bill and Joan Silvano Tobin, Paul Farnham, Priscilla Doran Brejcha, Marcia Sullivan Stewart, Rosemary Rice Walton and Nancy Kiddoo.
Marcia Leahy Crago reports that Linda Burdick Strauss is indeed in E. Falmouth, Mass, but that WB had messed up her address. Steve is writing her another letter.
Sue Wilde Lindsey continues to have a Wilde time, asking for an update of Bob Grome's address. Stan Whitcomb note. Sue says she is sure Curtis Blinn still lives on Bacon St, but she hasn't seen him in 3 years. We're following up on Curtis.
Bill Sharron is still thinking about whether he belongs in the Class of 1958 Do we need to print a revised YEARBOOK?
Steve also sent letters to Jay Blunt, Jackie Buxbaum Cross, Gwenn Dunbar, Tuckerman Dyer, Dorsy Erlandson, Bob Luby, Gerda Sanders, Georgia Manty Doukas, Kathy Fitzpatrick Bower, Henry Ward and Richard Iliff. But, we haven't heard from any of them.
Letters to Frank Lang were returned; we don't know where he is.
ONCE AGAIN, we must ask our readers: Please check the MISSING PERSONS list, and the NON-RESPONDENTS we just listed. If you have any clues about these classmates - where they are, what they may be up to, why we don't get a response - let us know.

Moses and The Computer
M: Excuse me, Sir.
M: How did you guess?
M: But you already know; remember?
G: Well, go ahead, Moses; spit it out.
G: And what did he say?
M: You know what he said. He used Your name in vain. You don't think
he might have sent me one of those - er - plagues, and that's the reason I
lost those ten things, do you?
M: Whatever! This computer stuff is just too much for me. Can we just go back to those stone tablets? It was hard on my back taking them out and reading them each day, but at least I never lost them.
G: We will do it the new way, Moses.
M: I was afraid you would say that, Sir.
G: Moses, what did I tell you to do if you messed up?
G: No, Moses.
M: One other thing. Why did you not name them 'frogs' instead 'mice,'
because did you not tell me the thing they sit on is a pad?
G: Say good night, Moses.
M: Wait a minute, Sir. I am stretching out the mouse, and it seems to be working. Yes, a couple of the 'ten things' have come back.
G: Which ones are they, Moses?
M: Let me see. 'Thou shalt not steal from any grave an image' and
'Thou shalt not uncover thy neighbor's wife.'

"Nancy is another one of our classmates who, when she opened the senior pages in the yearbook, had to read her last name misspelled. It's Kiddoo (ki-DOO)."
Apparently, Bob City and his staff made a few mistakes writing the 1958 Wellesleyan. OK, lawyer Bob, how do you plead?
We sympathized with Posey's problems. But, we had to tell her she'd have to see an MD to get DETROL LA or another prescription for 'content control.' We didn't know what to say about her submission problem, since it actually happened 3 times. That's more than WB and a lot of other folks are capable of, lately.
October 19, 2002
This is nothing new. After JHB provoked WB into re-reading the 1957 WELLESLEYAN, even WB was surprised to see how prominent the Class already was by its WHS Junior year. The 1957 book is loaded with pictures of - you guessed it - the Class of 1958! One wonders what happened to those '57ers? We hesitate to say, also-ran, but ... At a later date, we may scan in those many pages of 1957, proof of our history.
October 18, 2002
"Picture at 26th reunion 26.5-2-1 includes me doing some sort of strange dance of greeting with Don and Pat. Actually, I was being presented with an award for the having the youngest child of those in attendance. Interestingly, that child was/is my oldest son who is now a junior at NYU - Tisch School studying film and writing. My second son just started at Savannah College of Art and Design (GA). My daughter and youngest child is just entered high school (9th grade) and I will shortly be leaving my office to attend her field hockey game. Also, since that time Sheila (spouse) has written and publishes a series of educational materials, books and manuals that form a reading instruction system for children at risk for reading failure."
"Okay, one more try as I think my first reply is lost. I teach at Armijo H.S. just around the corner from the courthouse. I teach English as a second language to level two/advanced beginners/early intermediate students for two periods, SDAIE/advanced level tenth graders for two periods , and twelfth graders at the SDAIE level for one period.
"Glad to know that the messages were received in spite of my technophobia. Yes, I need a coach, or do I need a sponsor in Technophobes Anonymous? Yes, Posy and I have stayed in touch, if sporadically, over the years. She and I have gotten together several times, most recently six or seven years ago when my son-in-law was stationed in Portsmouth VA. She is as much fun and bright as ever."
Tattled Tales is now talking to Marcia about the rest of the story ...
"We have been having some beautiful weather this week, except Wednesday when we had a nor'easter. We are finally getting color. It has been a good two weeks late in coming this year. I wonder if it is from our very dry summer. It won't be long now that we will be packing for Naples, Fl. We leave Jan. 6th and come home April 10th. It is so nice getting out of the northeast in the dead of winter. We rent a condo in Naples. It is a 5 min. walk to the beach. We have a canal going right by the front door with lots of boat activity. Amazing how many "Wellesley " people come down to Naples for the winter."
We warned Eleanor to be on the lookout for the ones on our MOST WANTED list.
So, we have to appeal to you readers: Dig up those 1956 WELLESLEYANs, check it out!. It is NOT a foregone conclusion that Judy wins all! You could be a BIG WINNER (see 10/17/2002).
October 17, 2002
professional boy-watcher!) [her words -ed.] will put $10 on
the fact that your unknown basketball player in Rocky's picture is
Brent Lathbury. No, wait! Make that $100. I just dug out my 1956
Wellesleyan- on p. 68, top picture, top row between Stan Hunt
and Frank Lang is "B. Lathbury." He is also on p. 54 of the 1957
yearbook. He must be one of the ones whose parents decided he was having
too good a time and needed to get off to private school if he was to get
into college (at least that was Park's parents' feeling).
Ok, folks. Wanna bet a long shot? I put the starting odds at 10:1 favoring Judy. Is anyone making book? Or must we go to Vegas for this one?
Another one working long hours is Bev Swain Ellis, who manages a Hallmark store until late into the evening. Dick was told all by abandoned-at-home hubby, Richard.
All this work is an increasingly familiar tune, sung by many who've lost fortunes on Wall St. Or were we robbed?
Meanwhile, we've had to put several more people on the MISSING PERSONS list, now totaling some 52 people - 23% OF THE CLASS! Maybe they've had it, and moved to Club Med. If you are taking any trips - to SPAIN or elsewhere - keep an eye out for the lost ones, would you?
October 16, 2002
"Was just looking at Rocky's pictures again. The WJrHi 1955 Basketball team picture: definitely Bill Danielson. Also, Peter Fitts [Fitz -ed], Jay Blunt - I'm pretty sure. Ask the girls who may (or may not have - I'll never tell) had more than a passing interest in them!!! Their memories may still be pretty good. Also, does Rocky look a little bit like a blonde JoePa? (Joe Paterno for those non-Penn State fans.)
Judy gets EXTRA POINTS on this exam for identified our misspelling of Fitz and Blunt, which we've corrected. We'll ignore her renewed interest in boys in this case.
We agree, and we're hoping you agree, because now we've had a number of witnesses. The strapping young lad on page 3 must be Bill Danielson, and we've labeled it that way. Congratulations to Judy, Dick Emerson and Staunton Oppenheimer for putting the finger on that fellow. NOW all we have to do is find him: he's still on our MIA list!
But, the contest is not over. Who is the player between Myles Byrnes and John Putnam on our Rocky Memory Page 1? Check it out, and send Tattle Tales your eye witness report.
Of course, she is not getting off the hook so easily. This will be a WORKING vacation, as Tattled Tales expects Judy's Compleat Guide to Spanish Cruising with Photographs, for publication shortly after her return. Ah-so, sayonara, Judy-san!
On the other hand, Steve's fired-up letters have rousted MARCIA SULLIVAN STEWART out of hiding just a few miles from WB. She pleads, "I am having trouble accessing all you have sent ... Okay, now you know the truth. I am in danger of becoming extinct, as I am way behind the times. In the meantime, I will ask a friend to try to figure it all out for me. That is my immediate plan for adaptation. ... I am a busy teacher and devoted grandmother to four wonderful little children." WB also learned that, like most Californians, Marcia and X joined the BTDT crowd in1994.
October 15, 2002
"Kathy Fitzpatrick is divorced from her husband - I'm not sure of the spelling of his name either. I understand she is a now a Methodist minister herself. You may be able to locate her through the United Methodist home office. Her husband was a minister here in Moultonborough a while ago."
"I talked to Bruce McCracken for 1/2 hour on Saturday and 1 1/2 hours on Sunday. We talked about a lot of the common things we shared in life... Warren School, living in poets corner, Boy Scout Troop 183, gymnastic and wrestling teams, gym team at UMASS, the Defenders; plus we both lost our brothers sadly at an early age. It was great to talk to Bruce on all these subjects. We had a lot of laughs. I applaud Bruce for getting to compete 4 years in college gymnastic competitions...my initial goal in life that I blew partying too much; Bruce did it and his coach was none other than Eric Kjelson.
I told Bruce about the controversy over the unknown lad in Rockie's (sic) basketball pictures. [Rocky Memory - ed] Bruce remembered the one photo right off and said that was definitely Bill Danielson. He is going to check out the second photo this week. His email address is at his office, so maybe you will get some feedback today... oops, make that Tuesday... Bruce works for the government and today (Oct 14) is a holiday.

We have about 257 people on our class list, including some 29 long-time friends and associates of the class. Of the 257, 31 are known dead. 44 (17%) are on our MISSING PERSONS list. Thus, there are 182 people for which we have some known method of contact. Of these 117 (64%) are on the Internet, 33 (13%) are on the HOT PURSUIT list, and 32 (18%) are supporting the US Postal Service. We are pretty sure those on the HOT PURSUIT list live at the addresses or phone numbers we have.
We know of only 3 people - truly a small fraction - who prefer "disconnecting" from this group, for reasons not fully disclosed.
Assuming those being pursued and the missing split as above, eventually we might find 145 (64% of 226) people on the Internet. So, we think there's another 28 or so of you out there on the web, lurking somewhere. ET Call Home!
"I had some very nice conversations with several of our old classmates this past evening.
"George Frangoulis is alive and well in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. ... His e-mail address is.....firstname.lastname@example.org . We had a nice chat. George is looking forward to communicating with the rest of the class. I will let him explain the meaning of his e-mail address.
"Priscilla (Doran) Brejcha is alive and well in Overland Park, Kansas... a stone's throw from my town of Stilwell. She moved to a new residence in Overland Park recently. She works part-time at the Trailridge Elementary School in Overland Park; not currently teaching. ... I told Priscilla that I would print off some hard copies and hand deliver them to her ... is the e-mail does not work. Sounds like Priscilla is living a happy life. I look forward to having lunch with her and her husband in the near future.
"Stauntan Oppenheimer is alive and well in Hilton Head, South Carolina. We had a long chat and he gave me some good tips on locating other classmates. ... Stauntan filled me in on the fact that he did not officially graduate from WHS, but left after his junior year for Cushing Academy... where he bumped into a couple other Wellesleyites. He wants very much to keep in touch and hopes to attend reunions... but he is not sure about the 45th next summer. He gave me some tips on finding Robert Hansen, which I will follow up on later. Bob works or worked for Chrysler Motors and lives in Maryland, North Carolina or Virginia. Stauntan also gave me the name of John Gummere, who he said was originally in our class, but left in the 10th grade to attend a private school; John is to visit Stauntan soon and I was told that he would like to be added to the distribution list... guess I will have to come up with his addresses in a week or two, after his visit with Stauntan. He also mentioned David Hersey, who left for private school. We also discussed Bill Danielson and Larry Daloz, who left in the 10th or 11th grade for Noble & Greenough. His bringing up the name of David Hersey reminded me of Bill Hersey, who was once in our class; I believe he left and graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy and later Cornell...moot point, however, as I know Bill Hershey died a few years ago. Stauntan also gave me a tip that Ted Villa may be living in Belmont, Mass. ... Stauntan also mentioned Robert Madden, who I believe was once in our class. Robert hit the big time in the business world and is a mega-millionaire. Stauntan and I had a great chat, and as you can see he was a good source of information.
"Joan (Roberts) Brackett is alive and well in Ballwin, Missouri. Joan was out, so I chatted with her husband, Tom. Seems like a nice chap. They live on the Missouri side of the Mississippi River, a few stone throws from St. Louis and about 250 mi from KC ... Sorry I missed talking to Joan. Sounds like she has a nice husband.
"... This was my first night to try reaching classmates. This is fun and warming to the heart."
"I live in Leola Pa. a suburb of Lancaster Pa. Do we have a clue as to any or how many of our classmates are located in the Middle Atlantic States. [See State of the Class - ed] ... This website and related websites have rekindled old memories and old friendships.
"I have heard from George Mc Carthy (California) and Brad Rohrer (class of 57) Annapolis Md. I am regularly in touch with Dot and Bob McCarthy and Ralph."
In case you don't know about Oregon slugs, they are the largest in North America, have a voracious appetite, and invariably move quickly to grab whatever is in sight. Not at all the garden variety critter people elsewhere are familiar with, it is indomitable in Oregon and the Northern California coast. Perhaps it is something about the climate that also produced Steve Prefontaine, one of the world's fastest runners (see http://www.prefontainerun.com/).
If you doubt the efficacy of Steve's methods, be it known that within a few days, we found Chapman, Christianson, Frangoulis, Kemp, Lambro, Lapham, Matera, McCracken and Oppenheimer. That's an impressive 50% hit rate.
Steve notes, "After thinking some more about Stan Hunt I believe
that I will send a letter to the family. Want them to know that he was an
inspiration to me in high school and maybe beyond, too."
"I saw Peter Hutton on a plane back in the '80s, maybe the '70s. He was an engineer in one of the Route 128 high tech companies, doing US Defense Dept work if memory serves me. At that time, he had taken over his parents house on Cottage Street, Wellesley"
Virginia Sleigh Sands is in education, writes children's books, has 2 adopted children (plus 4? more of her own) and does photography as well. She remembers WB's offer to sell tickets for a trip to the Moon, which WB does not. (As a favor, WB will offer $1 for each authenticated ticket presented for redemption. Otherwise, the Moon trip company is out of business.) She will work on contributing some samples to this site.
Don McNutt says Ken MacKenzie has been a super courier for FedX for years and years, and loves it. Don also notes that Dr. Howard Pritham practices medicine in NH. And, Bruce McCracken is a New Jersey road planner (note, NYC commuters!).
Walter had a long talk with Howard Braff, Anne Maynard Brodzinsky's X. He praises her, saying she is a "beautiful person" and "... she stills lives around the corner" (in S. Orange, NJ). They have several children, and share them peaceably. Meanwhile, Ann has moved in with David Brodzinsky, who is also a psychologist. Ann is an author well known in child psychological circles, specializing in adoptions. WB has pending correspondence with her.
'Scilla Jenkins Benson is rejecting WB's e-mails, following the DOS attack on the web site, and last week's virus scare. She had told WB she doesn't like or trust the Internet, so this is not a surprise. Anyway, WB is used to being rejected by ladies. Maybe one of the ladies reading this can convince her to come back to the fold (don't even think about mentioning WB).
Judy reports more confusion in Montreal, where Prudence Mors told Judy she belonged to the Class of 1962 and had just gone to a Wellesley Reunion. Pru - apparently a Wellesley College graduate - couldn't remember Wellesley High School. We'll consider this a Senior Moment. Would the several Wellesley College graduates in our class undertake straightening out Pru, and 'Scilla, too, please? [Does the College warn impressionable undergraduates about Townees too much? -ed]
Loretta Pearson Bigelow has been Treasurer - previously Assistant Treasurer - of Towns in and about Framingham. Hit by the massive budget crunches now afflicting Massachusetts, she's looking for another position. Asked about her handling of the people's money (taxes), she swears she never takes home any free samples. She insists that, anyway, there aren't any leftovers; the City's cupboard is bare. Of course, our investigative reporters will never believe that story, especially when some politicians still claim things are not as bad as they seem.
WB had a long talk with Bob Boynton, Sandra Smith's hubby. Being a Needham man, Bob warned WB several times to report fairly about Needham, feeling that Wellesleyans are innately prejudiced and cannot get things right. Hoping to placate Bob, WB risked all, revealing the little known fact that he was actually born in Needham. Bob wanted to know, however, exactly where in Needham WB lived, feeling that even Needham denizens living too close to the border are infected with "Wellesley-ness". It is not clear whether Needham Heights was far enough away. But it doesn't matter, as Bob believes WB was almost certainly, hopelessly corrupted by actually living in Wellesley for years thereafter. Moreover, Bob thinks attending WHS and playing in the WHS Band at Needham-Wellesley games is more than enough evidence to secure conviction of being a Wellesleyan. Sandra and Bob have been married since the 1960s, but it must be hell around Thanksgiving. Maybe they live in Dover because it is relatively neutral territory.

Steve Kenney says Oregon became a State in 1845, but the history books say it was 1859. The California Republic acceded to the Union in 1850. Neither State ever seceded from the Union, although many citizens of both states have often had severe doubts whether we really belonged with parts East, North or South.
One of the longest running border disputes within the United States was between Oregon and California. When the O&C lands were surveyed, in the19th century, they blew it! From Siskiyou (which Oregonians call Mt Ashland) to the coast (Brookings-Crescent City), there was an error amounting to MILES of land. The correctly drawn border would have thrown most of Brookings, Ore into California, thus reclaiming its 75% expatriate Californian population and making them pay the infamous SALES & USE TAX. This was totally unacceptable to the refugees, and successors to the O&C empire. This wrangle was finally settled about 10-15 years ago, when California generously ceded Brookings to Oregon, but took back a slice of untaxed mountain forest land running along the border to Hilt, Ore. Hilt is mostly a gas station on I5 at the foot of the Siskiyou grade, which made a bundle selling PowerBall tickets and no-sales-tax gas to Californians. They fought the settlement tooth-and-nail, but were sacrificed to California.. Now, Hilt, Calif sells high-priced California gas and Lottery tickets.to the unwary, drags out people stuck on the grade every winter, and gets by. For those who know the road, Oregon's highway and signs still occupy 2 miles of California's territory, though the OFFICIAL State line markers were moved to the correct location.
For Californians, the worst of it came during the late 1970s and 80s, when Oregon ERASED the "Welcome to Oregon" paint on all its roads crossing the border. You can still see the blacked out words on the I5 segment now in California territory. CalTrans and ODOT have an agreement about maintaining the Siskiyou grade, which apparently doesn't include removing historical landmarks. Of course, during the economic crisis of the early 1990s, Oregon's politicians changed their minds, so now the southbound lanes read "LEAVING OREGON, COME BACK SOON!" (Are Oregonians aware of this treachery?) I think this has something to do with money flowing uphill.
Californians wistfully remember that the Silver State, Nevada, once belonged to the Golden State, but Oregon has never been possessed by anything Californian. In fact, Oregon and Washington were British colonies before being conceded to the United States. Oregon is unique in having been settled by large numbers of pioneers from Massachusetts during the 19th century. Coos Bay, for example, was originally called MARSHFIELD, after the Bay State town. There is still Marshfield High and lots of other Marshfield things there. But, times changed; the true, original natives (the Koos) asserted themselves and their names. Lately, those who learned the white man's ways well are triumphant, as anyone visiting the Coquille tribe's casino, The Mill (largest on the Coast), can see.
In fact, many Northern Californians and Southern Oregonians consider themselves citizens of the State of Jefferson. This is widely advertised and supported. A few years ago, voters in California's northern counties approved a resolution to secede from California. (WB voted 'yes'.) If that ever happens, a 300 x 150 mile stretch of the coast from Coos Bay - Roseburg nearly down to Ukiah-Sacramento will have disappeared from the parent States, and by itself become one of the larger States of the Union - an area 2/3 the size of Washington. Of course, the powers in Salem (named after the Massachusetts town) and Sacramento will not let go their long-subdued tributaries easily. So, Jeffersonians groan everyday under the yoke of their serfdom.
For those who've only flitted in and out of the West, and relied on maps, know that the maps lie. Washington, for example, is a long thin sliver - only 160 miles from Portland to Seattle, and another 60 or so to BC. Meanwhile, it's 300+ from Portland to Ashland, and another 300+ to Sacramento - about 700+ in all. Oregon has some really good rest areas, but California has been cutting back: bring your Porta-Potty. (Why do you think there are so many road tunas on I5?) Here, I must warn the unwary - it's only another 385 from Sac to LA, over what-everybody-knows is the most BORING route in the world, I5, at least until you get to Tejon, the Tehachapis.
Lots of people get fed up with the tourists during the Rain Festival (October-May), so they flee the Northwets for their personal Thanksgiving in Palm Springs, the Mojave and Aridzona. When the rattlers and Gila monsters come out, they've had enough salvation; returning to the sinful baths further north. Those in between, such as this writer, are familiar with their plentiful license plates busying the really great highways Californians built and paid for.
There's a sign on Hwy 50 near I80 in West Sacramento that says it is about 3,000+ miles to someplace, Maryland. Even for Californians, that's quite a trip. I usually think of Washington, DC as being at least 4,000 miles or more from wherever I am here (mentally and physically). It's enough to make you realize that all those people passing through from Arizona, Nevada, Oregon and Washington (alphabetical here, no preference implied!) are just hometown folks.

BG Metzler (not 'betty gene', pla-ese) is a breast cancer survivor, and is very active in the Charlotte, NC Breast Cancer society and related activities. Robert M is also active in Charlotte service organizations. BG says the experience certainly changes your attitude about life, and she looks forward to living each day, one day at a time. This reporter has heard this from a lot of friends and acquaintances in similar situations, and learned it for himself; certainly something each of us should take seriously.
WB's friend, Robert Kane (not WHS), is running his 2nd marathon for the Leukemia & Lymphoma society. You, too, can help sponsor someone in these runs, or contribute to your favorite society, which raises money for research and medical care. Meanwhile, WB now manages to walk 30 min/day, per MD marching orders; but, a marathon, never!
Steve Kenney is having a Vietnam Wall experience viewing our "In Memoriam." It seems the list gets longer and harder as one goes through it. He was unhappy about HS buddy Stan Hunt being on the list, and would like to know more about what happened to him. If anyone out there can tell us about Stan's life, we'd appreciate it and will post the news. [I think he was a psychiatrist. - ed.]
Etta Harney Badsteubner opines Rebecca Cook Drew is dead, but is confused about Becky's life. Was she in and out of the Nunnery? We've haven't got a handle on Rebecca, but aren't prepared to enter another obit. Any clues you have about Rebecca would be most welcome, since she's among the very-hard-to-find on the long-lost list.
Lindsay professes Math at NYU, Albany, where he is an expert on the theory of Groups & Rings in algebra, and apparently in humans, too! Take a look at Lindsay's guess on Larry Daloz (Missing Persons). Scoffer WB has been repeatedly shamed by many of Lindsay's "wild guesses" turning out to be right.
WB found Karen Wegner Porter and Chris Holman alive and well in Montana, and had really delightful conversations with both. Karen is involved with ROCKS at Montana Tech, which is what geologists do. Karen traded notes with WB about life in the rural West, which we both enjoy. I think we had a meeting of minds about a lot of other things, too. She is a wife, mother, grandmother and did it all well! We are hopeful Karen will contribute a thing or two to our website.
Chris is semi-retired on the farm, having been a high-tech machinist in Silicon Valley nearly forever. He's made the (hand-made) stuff that makes the Internet work, hush-hush stuff for DOD contracts, and continues working with California companies. He has a heart valve problem, which is controlled by a new drug. We grumbled at each other about the cost of prescriptions, health insurance and medical care generally. As he says, Jessie James is alive and well, and owns the hospitals (and maybe the doctors & drug companies, too). His son's given him a computer, which he's going to hitch up to the Internet pretty soon.
WB also checked out Sue Bell Dennett, who is a very busy person (see Registry). Her husband, Prof Dan Dennett, teaches philosophy at Tufts, and has published several books of great interest to WB. The Dennett name has crossed WB's path before, but little did he know how closely this was connected to WHS '58. (Sue: I ordered the latest 3 books from amazon.com. This means I'll read them.)
Joan Morison Bennett was busy setting out dinner when WB interrupted. As a physicist, she did research on antennas. She's been involved with the schools for a long time and is active in local politics. She was elected to the School Board. The hot issue in Glendale, AZ is porny shops near schools, as well as getting WB OFF the phone at dinner time. (The media will do anything to get a story.)
WB continues his pursuit of Jay & Dona Blunt who are dug in somewhere near Long Grove or Lake Zurich, IL. WB surmises that Don Martin also lives not too far away. What is it about the rural area north of Chicago? Can't be The Mob - they hung out on the south side.
Robert City is a very discreet member of the Boston bar. There is a website link in the class list to his impressive credentials. We're hoping to learn more about him, despite his claim of being "computer challenged."
Bruce Ramsey and WB have been trading one-liners, WB having taken advantage of Bruce's profession on several occasions. Bruce writes: "As for my law practice, I have been much more oriented to planning (structuring business, real estate and personal ventures and investments) than court work." Delivering another blow to WB, he says "I believe Lindsay Childs is on the right path to make contact with Larry Daloz."
Marcia DiLucci Sechrest is a Sacramento real estate agent (Coldwell Banker). WB found her after having a long talk with X, Joel, of Modesto. They agree on one thing: Marcia hates the chill and fog of Half Moon Bay. Marcia's been in California since the mid-60s, and has 5 children - 4 on the Coast and 1 back east. Her 2nd husband died of cancer last December. Marcia is a spunky gal, and is putting the pieces back together. She loves real estate in the hot Big Tomato. Spoilsport WB quipped, 'yeah, sure, the way prices are, you're giving tours of Buckingham Palace everyday.' Lucky her: she forgot about going to the square dances in Weston with WB during 7th grade, but who wouldn't? Marcia and WB will have another chat later.
Bob Gallerani, Dottie Loring and WB are trying to figure out what's happened to Nancy Kiddoo. We've put her on the Missing Persons list, as she seems suddenly to have disappeared. Anyone got any clues?
October 1, 2002
Joan also writes that Diane Cannon Jolicoeur & spouse own a Bed &
Breakfast In Marblehead, which is on the internet at
But, the mystery is not over. Who is the other fellow on page 1 (back row)? Judy thinks it is Brent Lathbury. But, does anyone else remember him?
Meanwhile, this reporter believes Dick Emerson is right about Bill Danielson on page 3. Somehow, he looks "right" to me, but I didn't know Bill well.
Will someone please come forward and help us out? Senility is NOT an excuse. Not yet.

" ... remember Band?....you could always beat me out on Clarinet! I still have my Tenor [Sax] and believe it or not, I still play the damned thing. My neighbors think I'm keeping geese in the house."
And, now this forces yet another embarrassing confession by WB. I gave my clarinet away years ago. I practiced classical piano for about 20 years, but now have mostly given it up. Rubenstein, I am not. And, another public confession and apology: Barbara Fish was really a much better clarinet player than me. The only reason she wasn't made solo/1st clarinet was old Raymond Leach's sexist prejudices (common in the '50s), that the boys had to be put ahead because they would support families in the future. I am sure you ladies know which glass ceilings I am talking about. I have always felt guilty about that., and now you know. [Being webmaster is getting tougher every day ...]
Tom tells how it is lately:
"I've been retired since 1997 as I thought that 32 years as a Probation
Officer was enough...and crime won! My wife, who was also a Probation
Officer, has been ill for the past few years, but after several
operations, we're finally enjoying retirement..
Now that we know Logan is in good hands, the only remaining question is whether WB could ever pass through its gates?
September 25, 2002
"Ralph, Margaret Sullivan and Jay Blunt and I used to live
very close to each other.... we went to grammer (sic) school together. I
had to tell Ralph that I remembered where his house was... right across
from Margaret's house... Jay, Ralph and Margaret and I used to be chums at
play. In fact, I remember the 4 of us playing "spin the bottle."
Having established that Linda is not senile, our reporter insisted, "Are you now going to claim faulty memory about those bottles, too????" Flustered, Linda retorted:
We've expanded our investigation to Lindsay Childs, and asked Dick Emerson for more documentation.
Is it possible the other person (Rocky's page 3, middle) is Bill Danielson? After all, that boy looks different from the one on page 1. But, then, who can tell about teenagers in the growing phase? The mystery deepens ...
September 17, 2002
Now, Dick Emerson challenges that claim. As he says:
"The unknown lad in picture #1 [our page 1], holding the banner on our
left, is Bill Danielson. He is also the unknown lad in picture #2
[our page 3]. Bill lived on Fiske Road, just around the corner from
Bruce McCracken. I used to live in the cul-d-sac at the other end of
Fiske until we moved to the top of Longfellow Road. Quite a few of us used
to meet for the bus to Junior High on the corner of Fiske, very close to
Bill's house. I also attended Warren Elementary with Bruce and Bill. ...
Bill attended Junior High and possibly one year at WHS, but he moved on to
Nobel and Greenough (however you spell it) along with Larry Daloz."
We at Tattled Tales did not send our investigators to check the allegations. Mea Culpa. So, until we have sufficicient confirming witnesses, we withdraw our identification of the unknown person. We extend our sincere apologies to anyone feeling offended in this matter. We will continue our investigation of these photos and report the facts when they are known.

Bev writes she has been married to Clay (Skip) since 1962. Clay hails from the Sacramento area. They traipsed about the country until getting stuck in LA. Skip is a consultant. Bev works part-time as an elementary school instructional aide and church secretary.
She has fraternal twin daughters - Christine
+ 3 grandchildren living nearby, and Michelle in Sonoma. Son, Buddy -
Clay Jr, lives in Dubai, UAE with his British wife and twin daughters.
Another daughter (unnamed!?) is coaching women's soccer at her alma
mater. Bev's sister Danni, (WHS '60) and husband moved to Arizona, where
they built a barn, straw bale house and artist's studio on their 80 acres
of high desert!
She says, "We've gotten together with Jo
Morton Clark a couple of times! Great fun! Priss Doran Brejka was here
with her husband in July and that was grand! Marcy Gress (Payne - see
below) and I talk frequently, although we don't get together in person as
much as we did when my parents were still here. I even saw Sue Drummond
Abele for a short while in the mid-nineties. A couple of years ago Dottie
Loring was over in Redondo Beach and we had lunch together - that was a
lot of fun!"
Dick is a senior software engineer at Sprint, with 21+ years on local billing (LTD division). "SPRINT built a humongous campus in Overland Park, Kansas... which looks like a N.E. brick college campus and holds 15,000 + employees ... I try to stay technical and avoid the politics of management; doesn't pay as much that way, but I have less stress and enjoy my work more."
"... Don McNutt worked across the aisle as a contractor a year ago. ... (He) is now with ADM in Decatur, Illinois."

He also noted the Kingsbury School property was sold off to developers years ago, and is now a condo complex.
Since this question bears on the success of this website, I am very interested to know the answer. Your opinion, PLEASE!

Does this support the worm-hole theory of the Universe: the black hole on NY's Wall St. somehow connected with Wellesley's Wall St, which has natural springs under it?
