The list above is taken from the sixth grade graduation program dated June 18, 1953.  Like most other members of the class of '53, I went on to graduate from Jamesville-DeWitt High School in 1959.  I later attended Syracuse University and lived in CNY until 1983.  I live now in Madison, MS, where I am in private practice as a psychotherapist.

Despite moving from the area, I have managed to maintain contact with some of my old classmates.  But, of course, over the decades, others have passed away or simply become "lost."  It is in the hope of  re-establishing contact with these lost classmates that  this site has been created.  If any of them--or their friends or family--should come across this page, they are encouraged to click here to contact me by email.
