What song most reminds you of your school days?
All the Kingston Trio stuff that Rick, Bill and I  harmonized to.
Which reunions have you attended?
Only the 25th.

Fondest memories of your days at Central:
-- especially at the Vagabond-sponsored parties .

My life since graduation:  
After graduating from Central, I attended the University of Tennessee  in Knoxville for two years and East Tennessee State University for one.  In 1966 I traveled to Manhattan for a one-week visit.  Fifteen years later, I moved to Atlanta, having spent the intervening years in New York attending Columbia University and working as a writer and then a copy editor with The New York Times Index and The New York Times Information Bank.  While not working 9:00 to 5:00 on West 43rd Street, I played guitar, wrote and recorded music, and performed around town with another entertainer by the name of Veda Neu.  The height of our career was performing at the Beacon Theater on Broadway.

 In Atlanta, I became a copy editor with The Atlanta Journal.  Later, I migrated to the legal field.  I now work with a large international law firm -- Kilpatrick Stockton - as a non-attorney member of the Litigation Department.  I live and work in Midtown Atlanta.

 After retirement (which I hope is soon), I plan to  divide  my time between Ft. Lauderdale and Atlanta.
