January 08, 1944 congordon@sbcglobal.net 7737642927 7737642027 6933 N Kedzie Avenue Chicago IL US 60645 retired library manager Single Bryn Mawr Over the course of my life I have traversed a path from 7200 South to 7200 North, with a few forays into neighborhoods in between. Inside, I still feel I'm a south sider.

BA Roosevelt University 1965
M.Ed. University of Illinois 1971
MLS Rosary College 1988

Highlight--quitting teaching for good and going back to school to get a degree in Library Science. 1984 Rosary College (now Dominican University) was the best school I ever attended, and I was lucky to have 2 brilliant professors mentor me on libraries and on life.

I found my work "home" at the Chicago Public Library where I was first a children's librarian and then a branch manager until Nov 1 2010 when I retired.

Retirement is wonderful...I have never felt so free.

I have been back to South Shore several times because for a while my boss's office was in the South Shore Branch Library. I had the excitement of having Mayor Richard M. Daley visit my branch 4 times.

Additional life lowlight/highlight=
Cancer survivor 2003.I was lucky to have discovered this at a very early stage.

Clifford Cobb, U.S. History 2, was my favorite and best teacher.

Highlights were summers at Rainbow Beach and Riverview, barbecued beef sandwiches at T Hut, laughing with friends, winning the Sing, and the Washington Trip.

December 04, 1943 dale.goldhaber@uvm.edu 8026562025 8028644847 26 Adsit Ct. Burlington, VT US 05401 Professor Married 2 So much happens in fifty years. Finished undergrad at Roosevelt and took a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from Syracuse in 1969 and I married in 1969 as well. My wife Jeanne and I have been on the faculty of the University of Vermont for many years. My area is human development and hers is early childhood education. I have also served at times as department chair and center director and am currently working on my third book. We have two sons, Dan is a professor at the University of Washington, Seattle and Ben is Chief of Staff for one of the Assistant Secretaries in the Department of Health and Human Services in DC. We also have one very wonderful 15 month old granddaughter. So far, life has been very good to us and living in Vermont is wonderful although it does tend to get a bit cold in the winter. We travel to Italy often, both to visit schools as part of our work and because it's just a beautiful place to be.

I'm not yet sure if I will be able to make the reunion or not but would certainly like to hear from any of you again.
I do have fond memories of SSHS and of growing up in South Shore although the fondness may have simply been that growing up in a fairly sheltered world, I wasn't yet aware that other places weren't as privileged as our place. But in any case, it was a good time in my life.

I am also struck by how many of our classmates are no longer with us. Statistically, it is probably about the right percentage but that doesn't make it feel much better. Although I really never maintained contact with these people, I still find myself feeling a sense of loss.

March 08, 1944 goldberg@wccnet.edu 8461 Thurston Rd Pinckney MI US 48169 Retired math instructor Single Again 2 Bradwell I attended Purdue University for 2 years, was surprised that there was no student orchestra (remember how I walked around SSHS with a french horn?), then U of Michigan for a degree in math and grade 5-12 teacher cert. I taught high school for 11 years, then community college until I retired Aug. 2010. I was married for 25 years, then divorced, and I have 2 kids, now 21 and 23. I currently live with a wonderful lady (guess that means not exactly married).

I still freelance as a horn player; I owe the musical part of my life to Sam Gorbach, who persuaded me to study french horn and give up the trumpet.
In my copious free time, I contribute to oedilf.com , which is constructing a dictionary of English where every word will be defined in the form of a limerick(!) Look for me there; my nom-de-lim is Goldie.

Here's a sample of this project:

====== drive out =======
When I worry that nobody cared,
And I wander around lost and scared,
Then a couple of beers
Help me drive out my fears.
I feel confident, loved, and impaired.

======== affable ========
Our existence is frail and precarious,
So be cheery and fun and gregarious!
An affable day
Keeps the doctor away —
Carpe diem, then die. Then they bury us.

======= diplocardiac ========
When she says she loves him and loves you,
When her heart is divided in two,
She's your great tell-it-straight
Diplocardiac mate.
50-50 your union pulls through.

========= deposit ===========
I'm a very old dog, yes indeed.
My mobility's all gone to seed.
So look in your closet —
I left a deposit;
I took a big dump and I peed.
==============================

Greetings to all!

In 1966 I married Lyle Felsenthal,(SSHS59). We have two daughters; Ellen is a professor of art and photography and also owns a "goat" rescue and sanctuary in northern WA. Robin is an LCSW, married to Brett Miller and they have two children, Nathan 7 and Jenna 5. I have been lucky to do some traveling in Europe, Asia and Mexico. Most of my time has been spent raising kids, volunteering, and working for an environmental publication. We now spend our winters in Scottsdale, AZ. I enjoy country and classic rock music, dancing, golf, and of course, DA BEARS. High School was a wonderful time for me. I loved the community we grew up in. Special lifelong friends, sorority, the Youth Center, the Sing, bowling, the Jeffery or Avalon every Sat., Mitchells and Cunis', T-Hut, and an overall sense of well-being. I remember my run-ins with Mrs. Feldman and throwing pennies at Mrs. Majors when she sang for the United Way. We laughed so hard we cried. Mostly I think of those days as happy days.

Marla lives in Pittsburgh with her husband, Hallie (10 years) and Ava (6 years)
When my children were young, I owned a plant business with a friend. We did interior decorating with plants and hosted informative plant parties. I then worked as a teachers aide in special education.
When my kids were in school full time, I went back to a real job. I worked in the Purchasing Department of Highland Park Hospital for 5 years. I then left the hospital and worked for Mainstreet Department Stores (now Kohls)in their purchasing department until they were sold. I was lucky and was hired by Crate & Barrel as senior buyer in operational purchasing. I worked my way to Purchasing Manager and 6 years ago was promoted in Director of Purchasing. In my position, I purchased fixtures, lighting, packaging and all operational supplies. I was directly involved in store openings across the country. I retired the beginning of February,2011 and I've been busy "finding myself"
I have many hobbies including gardening, knitting and reading. My husband is a photographer and we both enjoy traveling and taking pictures. One of our favorite places is Costa Rica.
My fondest memories are friends, sorority and fraternity parties.
Also..,going to Peter Pan on 71st street for french fries and a coke!

I became an obstetrician/gynecologist with a subspecialty of Maternal-Fetal medicine. After two years in the Navy in Oakland CA we returned to New Haven, then moved to Providence RI in 1982. I served as Professor and Chair of the ObGyn Dept at Brown until 2008, when I "retired" (I now work three days a week) to do the things I most enjoy...seeing patients with diabetes in pregnancy, doing research, mentoring, and pursuing my hobbies of wine making (I have a very small vineyard in my back yard) and photography.
Terri and I have three grown children (Becky, a recovering attorney who is principal of a charter high school in Providence; Rachel, a practicing veterinarian in East Providence; David, a consultant in social media living in Atlanta). We have four grandchildren (Noah, Milly,Jacob and Sarah) and we are fortunate to get to see them most Sundays since they live in Providence and we live about 25 miles away in Jamestown,on an island in the middle of Narragansett Bay, which is a great place for the kids to enjoy the water.
We love to travel, and last year visited the Galapagos Islands. This year we are planning a trip to Antarctica.
My Boyajian, our sophomore biology teacher, who taught us about evolution on the 100th anniversary of Darwin's "Origin of Species" and kindled my lifelong desire to see the Galapagos Islands...which was just fulfilled last year and was everything I had hoped for.

Margaret Annan who still lives in my superego whenever I sit down to write...

Florence Bergstrand...Latin Class lives on in all of our memories. Terri and I visited Pompeii a couple of years ago and that brought back so many experiences.

And all of the other wonderful teachers who made South Shore High School the wonderful environment for learning and maturing.

I just uploaded our graduation picture from Bradwell and it brought back memories; does anyone else remember that we sang "Bali Hai" and "The cuckoo cries" at graduation?

Highland Park, IL 60035 Married 2 Horace Mann In 1964 I married Steve Isenberg (Hyde Park 1960).We have two daughters, Barbra who is a life coach and Rachel who is a psychotherapist. Both live Fort Collins, Colorado and each have two children.
After volunteering for several organizations supporting young mothers and their children I became a labor and delivery coach.I found this to be very satisfying until making that commitment prohibited me from traveling to Colorado when I wanted to go.
We purchased a home there in 2007 and travel back and forth frequently.
I enjoy painting, reading and exercise,
and being with my grandchildren. Fortunately Diane has two grandchildren who live nearby so I get to see them often, sort of like having two more of my own.
I remember high school as being a time when friendships were foremost and teachers were old!!! Carl's, the Jeffery theater,T Hut, Mitchell's, and walking home down the rail road tracks are some of my favorite memories.
Getting caught driving at lunchtime. (Ms.Bird pulled up next to me at a stop light)was about the most rebellious act I committed. Sometimes I drove over to Hyde Park High to visit Steve during lunch period!
We were so fortunate to have grown up in a time of simplicity and peace.

Richard is retired now so I will keep working in the field I still love but taking it a little slower
I do not remember too much about school but I do remember the social life. The sing, football games at the Midway, Rainbow Beach, the JCC, and of course our great restuarants.
