Since 2007 2017 is the 50th 60th Anniversary of the graduation from St. Joseph's of the class that entered as Sixth Latiners in 1951, I thought all of us who spent some time in that class might enjoy a website with our recollections -- verbal and visual -- of our experiences and friendships during those years.
I had hoped to continue working on this website now that the celebration has come and gone and still hope to do so. For the moment, however, I am in the process of moving back into my home in San Francisco and have also begun developing a similar website for the class behind us who will have their golden jubilee in 2008 with the celebration on Saturday, April 26, 2008. You can see that (now dormant) website by clicking here.
NEWJohn Hunt has sent me a dvd with video of the Alumni Day Mass from last April. I am in the process of converting the files to a format that can be viewed from this website. This involves many, very large files so it may take some time to complete. However, here is a link to the page as it now stands.
I have received a couple comments from visitors to the website who
have pointed out to me that there is a St. Joseph's College website that has
other collections of memories. The site is

seminarian at St. Joseph's at the "memoirs" page at

|Feb 12th- I just got in a pictures' contribution from LoringMcAllister -- a great collection including lots of good shots of the Prof-Rhet softball game and even a couple of original Latin compositions. As usual, I have high hopes of eventually integrating these pictures into the website, but wanted to make them available this way in the meanwhile.||Loring's Pictures|

|Even during vacations, our class did a lot together with each other and with members of other classes. Here are a few pictures of some of the vacation activities. A party in San Mateo, a party at Jerry Distefano's house (Grattan St? in SF), a class dinner at Pinelli's restaurant, and camp counselling at Camp St. Alberts on the Skunk line and at the CYO camp.||vacations|

Second High Class Picture (Thanks to contributions by John O'Brien, Jim Tonna, and Denny Reidy, I think we have now matched the faces with the names and have them keyed. Thanks to Denny also for correcting the year of the photo and to Rich Monahan, I think, for supplying the photo in the first place. Let me know if we have any errors that need correcting.)
You can get a somewhat larger version of each picture by clicking on the picture and I have still higher resolution versions of some of them that I could email.
Don't forget to join your classmates for the Golden Jubilee Celebration on April 28, 2007.
