Subject: Hello out there

Can't believe its been 56 years since I graduated, class of 1949. Looking through the old Beechwood Trees I remember particularly those teachers who made a difference in my life and I'm sure in the lives of many students. Mr. Main: I wanted a life in science after his classes in biology and chemistry until I came upon the reality of math phobia and dropped that idea, but interest in science has never faded. And he had a wonderful singing voice too. Mr. Held, art teacher, who was not only a beautiful man but who was a inspiration not only to "do" art but to appreciate it. Mr. Palmer: how can I ever express my thanks to him. Literature and books became a mainstay in my life and if my house has more bookshelves in it than anything else,its all his fault. And finally, Miss Willins who never let adversity stop her for a moment. She became a good friend and was matron of honor at my wedding. As for me, I graduated from Drake University with a theater major, came back to New York to graduate from The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theater, got married, moved to Westchester, had two wonderful children, got divorced, went back to school to receive a MLS from Syracuse University and became the University Archivist for 26 years. As a side advocation I had five horses in the barn for the 10 years of our equine interest when my children were immersed in the local Pony Club and I taught dressage there. Now that the horses have been sold, the children grown, grandchildren getting ready for the college search,I, retired, share my house with three dogs, 2 retired racing greyhounds and one energetic whippet. Now is the time to sit back and remember? Right? No way. I am busier than I have ever been having returned to my first love, theater. Attending a Saturday Acting Workshop, writing short plays, and, after 50 years, appearing in a Comminity Theater play in a great part. There is more, much more, but that's enough for now. I would love to hear from anyone who remembers me. And to Ned, thanks for this site. Its a great gift.
