Chemical engineer; retired EPA in 2002 after 31 years. Still consulting when I have to. Grow lots of fascinating stuff on my 12 acres. So much left to little time. History is a passion. Sorry I didn't have more discourse with those who have left us. History lost forever.

One thought on “Class of 1915

  1. For those keeping score, the Alumni Directories (Purple Books) show 75 grads for 1915, 9 less than the 84 listed above. The difference is that the Directories missed 8 senior photos on pages 22 and 23 of the 1915 Champion, plus the two seniors (Cook & Guthrie) not pictured; but the Directories did add in 1912 grad Theodore Cushman to partially make up the difference.
