University High School
Class of 58

University High School

West Los Angeles

You have arrived at the homepage of the University High School Vagabond Class of Summer 1958. At this Web site you will find just about everything you ever wanted to know about people in the Vagabond and Tahitian classes . Where they are now, what they've been up to for the last 40+ years, their families, their careers, their accomplishments and their failures.
The 40th Reunion happened on October 17th, 1998 and was a great success. Over 300 people showed up, ate dinner, danced, schmoozed and made contact with old friends. It all was over too soon. The next day about 50 people showed up for a picnic at the University High campus. In the future this Web site will feature photos, lists, and commentary about those two events. In addition, more biographical sketches, family photos and photos from the past will be featured. The content is up to you. If you are a member of one of these two classes and you want to be included, send your information to one of the two addresses below. We are particularly interested in what you thought of the Reunion. Any comments or suggestions for future reunions would be greatly appreciated and would help form the 50th, which is what's next in 2008.
As for the format of this Web site, the "Reunion" page as well as the minutes of the committee meetings will be dependent on the input of the class members and the reunion committee. The Reunion Committee will meet one more time in the first week of November 1998. The minutes for that meeting will be posted in some prominent place on this Website so that people can know what their conclusions were about the reunion.

So if any of your Info has changed since 1998

Please Drop us a note.

  • Ron Chase writes: Classmates may be interested to know that I've published a book, and that in any case I am still alive. To verify these statements I attach two images. One is the cover of my book and the other is a fairly recent portrait of the author (together with some subject material from the book).

    Vagabonds may have more than an ordinary interest in the book since two of the species featured in it are local residents of Southern California. The sea hare, Aplysia californica, is illustrated on the cover. Beach goers have no doubt seen specimens stranded near the shore, often covered in their own purple ink. Also featured in the book is the brown garden snail, Helix aspersa. Although Vaggies probably consider this animal a pest, or worse, it has been my bread-and-butter experimental animal for the past 15 years. Californians should be grateful that I import about 1,000 of the snails to Canada every year.

    The book "Behavior and its Neural Control in Gastropod Molluscs." 
    is published by Oxford University Press , New York, 336 pp

  • Another sad note :

    Dear Friends and Family,     
                                               Margaret Ohara (Inouye)

    This is Robert Shinohara, Margaret's youngest son. I am here to inform you that on Saturday,
    June 16, 2001 at 3:30am, my mother, Margaret Shinohara, has passed away at
    Brotman Emergency Hospital.
    As far as the funeral services are concern, we will inform you as soon as we decide on the
    place and time.
    Please feel free to call me at anytime regarding on this subject.


    Robert Shinohara

  • from Linda Howard (Slavin) via Gidget:

    Margaret's funeral was unbelievable.  It started at 7:30 and ended at 10:00
    and there were at least 500 people. The service was done in English and
    Japanese. Judy Lewis (Steinberg) gave the eulogy in English and another
    friend gave one in Japanese.  I had forgotten she started the first Asian
    sorority house at UCLA.  About 100 women stood and sang their sorority
    song and one of the women spoke of all Margaret had done for the house.
    There were two women from the Wellness Community that also spoke of the
    inspiration she gave to others.  Margaret would have truly proud of the way
    she was honored.  The only people from school were Judy Newman (Lean)
    and Judy Lewis (Steinberg).


  • Another note and some pictures from a relocated Vagabond. Michael J. (Mickey) Ventura ventura1.jpg (5042 bytes)

    I also attended Emerson but got kicked out of UNI in A12 for fighting. I had to finish at Conoga Park for diploma. Oh! the futility of pugilism. I'm looking for Jim Corbett - Bob Harpham - Tak Kawahara - Dennis Kaisuka - Peggy Croft and many other friends.

  • Hi All,
    Taking the class name seriously, we have moved to Chicago where I've accepted a position at the Museum of Science and Industry ( neither of which I will be remembered for at Uni ) as Director of Exhibits and Creative Director. The job and city are great (except for the odd sub-zero day) and Domenica and I are really enjoying ourselves.
    A few years here and it will be back to sun and smog for us I'm sure.

    Take care, Mike Devine.

  • Doing this page has been a lot of fun and I've enjoyed it very much. Finding lost VAGABONDS digging up the old memories and placing the pictures on the pages but tonight I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes as I write this. A few moments ago I received this message from John:

  • From: "John Seligman"
    To: "Durk Ellison" <>
    Subject: Bad news
    Date: 09 May 2000 01:43

        Sam Cornell just called me. Fred Harris died this morning at 10am.
    Apparently he had brain cancer which was diagnosed some time ago. He
    hadn't told many people. He hadn't told me. I don't know any more
    details. You might want to put something up on the web site.

    John Seligman

    You see it's the first time I've had to move a picture from the Address list to the Memorium page and a very old and dear friend at that.

    Take Care Fred

  • Just received a note from Sue Landis (Kargar) :


  • boegheim.jpg (10323 bytes) Shirley Brand (Hanson)    sent us a picture of the LWF confirmation class, 1955.  "Quite a few Vagabonds in it.  Some of these kids were at the 40th reunion and some I don't remember at all. They might have gone to other high schools".   13/3/2000



  • Ray Sanchez ( His telephone number is 310-444-7884).
     The company that did the photo albums for the Reunion sent and billed him three extra copies. He would really like to sell these copies back to our class
    if anyone would like to purchase one. They are being sold at cost of $20. 

  • Mark A. Moore is collecting information for a book about Jan Berry.

    I have lived in San Jose since 1960. I have been teaching elementary school since 1968.
    I have taught grades 1-5 and am currently teaching 5th. grade. I also teach high school   dropouts two nights a week. I have held every office in the teachers' association including president. Right now I'm the health benefits representative and the nicest thing about this position is that every year I get to go to the employee benefits conference which is always in some fun place like Vancouver, Las Vegas, Montreal, etc.


    My son, Chris, just graduated from Franklin Pierce Law School in New Hampshire.
    He is in San Jose now studying for the California Bar Exam.



    It was great seeing the web page and looking at the current pictures of so many of my classmates.

  • And, connected to the note below, on January 22, 1999, Fred Harris received a handwritten postcard from Jim Pursell:

    Dear Fred:
    Thank you very much for your note. I enjoy hearing from all of you. Chris
    [Hungerland] and his beautiful wife visited me before they went home. I felt honored.
    I am very grateful to still be able to take care of myself. At 98 I'm getting too close to that big #100! How does anyone live that long?
    I have a wonderful family--2 kids (68 and 63) 5 grand-kids and 5 great grand-kids. I lost my wife on June 16th, 1989. God is good to me.
    Bless you,
    Coach Jim

  • Remember coach Jim Pursell? Well, we just got an email from Chris Hungerland:

    I wanted to pass this along to --- who ever might be interested. The gentleman who was the coach of the UniHi track and cross country teams while we were there, Coach Jim Pursell, is still alive and well at the age of 98!!! Hard to believe, but...there it is.

    Far from being weak and feeble, Coach Pursell is still intellectually alert and physically sound. He attributes this to "living upstairs" (in a 4-plex unit at Leisure World). He still remembers the various line-ups -- and the reasons for them -- from the meets that we competed in in '55 - '58. We should all be so lucky!!

    It's my hope that you can post this on "the page" so that any who might be interested in contacting him, to reminisce, etc., can do so at:

  • All right people, it's time to send in those photos of the reunion that are just sitting in your desk drawer. Check out the Reunion Photo Page and look at what's already been sent in. There are 67 photos so far. I know a lot more are out there...let's put them up on this Web site. 1/4/99


  • Noelle

    Jeanie Price has added to the long-neglected Progeny page a link for her daughter, Noelle Saenz' Web site: Check it out. It's all about living on Maui and eating cheeseburgers in paradise and the like. 12/6/98


  • Chris Hungerland sent in a note about John Putnam, in which he says, "I don't know whether to consider this an obituary, a memorial, or simply reportage. John died so very long ago that it's hard to recall just when - 1962 or '63...." 11/29/98


  • Way back last year Euie Gierson sent in a story about his pitching career for a local (LA) hardball amateur baseball league. He just recently updated us with bunch of pictures of himself pitching and hanging out with his family. Pretty impressive for a 58 year old geezer. 10/28/98


  • Hal Stein just sent us a photo of himself in Warrior football garb. He says that he must have been on coach Beck's shit list because the photo never made it to the yearbook. 10/28/98


  • The first photos of the Reunion have just come in from Sam Cornell. Please send your photos to one of the two addresses above so that we can put them up on our new Reunion Photo Page 10/26/98


  • Joanna Rossman (Morgan) has just sent us a brief history of her life since high school, and a couple of pictures as well. She was that beautiful tall, slender woman at the reunion who looked like she stopped aging about 20 years ago. 10/24/98


  • A Counts page has just been created. Check it out and help us with some of the missing names 10/8/98


  • We received a note and two photos from Mike Devine:

    "Dear (Reunion people)---
    Here are 2 photos...The first is me standing (I think) on a hill in Marin with small vehicles entering and leaving my neck. The second is of Domenica my wife who makes my life a very happy place for me to be.
    My best,    M"


  • 03/01/2001 Ever wondered what became of Mac Johnson? Follow the link to read his fascinating story. He lives in Elmira, Oregon, but it took him a long time to get there, as you'll see. 10/6/98


  • Barry Keenan, our infamous classmate, exploits his own misdeeds in an exhaustive article by Peter Gilstrap about Barry's 1963 kidnapping of Frank Sinatra Jr. If you've ever wondered about the intimate details of this ignoble and ill-conceived affair, read this article and learn how one can profit ($) from their mistakes. 10/5/98


  • Wendy Thue (Kelly) sent us a a couple of rare photos from our high school days. One of Jan and Arnie in a theatrical pose at State Beach and the other of herself and Sue Taylor posing at Balboa Island 1957. 10/3/98


  • We just received an E-mail from Ron Chase:

    This is a message for all my friends whom I will be unable to meet at the Reunion.

    Much to my regret I have teaching obligations that prevent me from coming. The essential facts of my life since graduation are the following. I went to Stanford University and then to Harvard Law School. I quit the law school and sold books in Harvard Square for nearly two years during the heady days of the mid-sixties. After graduate studies at M.I.T., I came to McGill University in 1971 as a professor in the Department of Biology. Although I am not fluent in French, nor a Quebec souverainiste, I enjoy living in Montreal. My academic speciality is neurobiology and especially, snail brains and snail behaviour. More about that at my Web site.

    The photo shows myself and wife Dorothy in the Bay of Fundy (note the Canadian Flag). We have been married for 30 years and we have one son and one daughter, both in their late twenties.

    I still enjoy running, but not competitively. On a recent visit to LA, I went to Unihi early one morning to run some laps on the track. It was just like the old days. The collection of weeds on the infield was the same, the pale dirt kicked up as dust, and there was a certain undefinable odour - perhaps pesticide - that I recognized as part of the place. I ran around a few times and started to tighten up, but then, as I enterred the turn leading to the stands, I sensed Al Gentry of Manual Arts running hard on my outside. I could hear fans shouting my name in encouragement. I gave it my all - and managed to finish the mile, a tired and sweating old man of 58.

    I'm really sorry that I'll miss seeing you at the Reunion. It's been fun getting in touch with a number of you through this Website. I hope everyone will buy John Seligman a drink at the Reunion for making the Website such a great success!

    I am writing on behalf of my mother Gaye (Lohrie) Versola. I am happy to report that mom is alive and well in Santa Barbara. We were informed from family members that she had been mistakenly listed on your "Memorium" page.

    She and my dad, Jimmy, have been married for 35 years and have two kids. Mom had to retire due to a series of medical difficulties, but keeps herself busy with her grandchildren.

    If all goes well, I plan on bringing mom to the reunion. She is very excited and planning for the trip has given her a new spark. I try to monitor your Web page, but if there is any information she hasn't received please feel free to send it to me.

    I look forward to meeting you in October!
    Thank you,

  • At the most recent Reunion Committee meeting it was decided to join forces with the Tahitian class of Winter '58 and to essentially have two classes at one reunion. More about that later, but for now we feature our first official Tahitian*, Francis Moss. Francis has his own Web site where you can find out all about what he's been doing for the last 40 years. As you'll find out if you go there, he is a writer. His most recent work is Internet for Kids. 7/18/98

    *Actually, two other Tahitians have managed to sneak into our Web site: Doug Tibbles and Len Traubman.


  • Alex Solodovnikov recently found us on the Web, and responded with the following E-mail

    I am working as a consultant at Raytheon System Co. Former Hughes Aircraft Co. I   retired in 1994 from Hughes after 30 years, but came back as a consultant two years ago. I am still married and have two grown children, Cindy and Geoff and about to become a grandfather for the second time. I still live in the Palisades where I periodically run into Dave Dillon and sometimes Giget and Sam Cornell, but not together, usually in the market. Ann Smith (Drumm) and her Husband George are friends of my Wife and I, we go to dinnner and a Show on occasion. Much of my life since starting to work has centered around my family and life in the Palisades, sailing, baseball, raising kids and getting on with life. I am looking to the Riviera where I can see a lot of old classmates.

      Since the reunion, I now have 4 grandchildren: Ethan and Lily Solodovnikov 4, and 6 mos. respectively, who live in Lompoc with my son Geoff and his wife Bridget. Spencer and Brendan Haan who llive in Santa Barbra with my daughter Cindy and her husband Robert. Needless to say Joyce nd I are up in the Santa Barbra often. Recently I had lunch with Kemp  Aaberg and  John Venable. Both are well. Kemp is a celebritty of the central coast due to his surfing exploits.He recently retired from UPS and recieved a nice write up in the Santa Barbra News Press about his surfing all around the world. John is still in the estate planning business, and is doing very well, he had just returned from a Kayak trip in central Utah where he had a ball.
    Durk, keep up the good work, I enjoy reading the web page.

  • On July 6, 1998, we received a letter from Pat Nolte (Burdette)
    Dear Vagabond Reunion committee,

     I am really looking forward to the Reunion and seeing friends and L.A. again. With the exceptiong of a summer at UCLA in 1960, I have not been back since graduation when my parents moved to the Bay area. After two years at Oregon State, where I was in the same Sorority with Pat Warner, I transferred and graduated from UC-Berkeley. Then I moved to Honolulu to work and met my husband Ben who was there with IBM. Over the next 30 years our family had some wonderful experiences living in several states, Japan, Venezuala and Hong Kong. At our last IBM location was in the NY-CT area, we decided to retire on the east coast, but to a slightly warmer area, and we moved to Williamsburg, Virginia in 1994. It's a wonderful community with no end of things to do. Ben is enjoying retirement and I am working in events planning at the Alumni Society at The College of William & Mary. Our son Matt (29) is a risk analyst for Air Security International in Houston and our daughter Kathy (26) is a manuscript editor for Colonial Williamsburg.
    See you all in October.

  • Dennis Johnston is up to no good as Howard Lane, Connie Nader and Carolyn Lee are about to find out...Palm Springs, 1960 7/15/98


  • See if you can figure out what Dennis Johnston, Ron Abraham, and Howard Lane are doing hanging out in front of Barry Keanan's house in April of 1960. It looks like they're focused on something in the back of Euie Gierson's Austin Healy. 7/14/98


  • We received an E-mail from Marshall English a few days ago. He's teaching at Oregon St. University in the Bioresource Engineering department. 7/6/98


  • Sometime in the semester before we graduated from Uni, the Barons did something bad, (who remembers what?), and they were suspended from the Hy Y and thus not allowed to have their group picture in the yearbook. Howard Lane somehow managed to get his hands on the original negative which he had printed and sent to us...and it is now here for your viewing pleasure. In addition there are a lot of pictures from the Barons 1981 reunion. 7/2/98


  •   Howard Lane tells us a little about what he's been up to for the last 40 years and shows us a photo of his Harley, his wife Bonnie and his two daughters, Shelby and Gentry. 6/25/98


  •   DD Cushman (Harrington) poses on a beach with her husband George and their dog Jessie. She is the president of Baiting Brook Realty, Inc. 6/23/98


  • Chuck Powell and his wife Peggy show us what happened to them at Mardi Gras a few years ago, while Chuck shows us what he thinks of it all. 6/15/98


  • Go read the minutes from the most recent meeting of the Reunion Committee where, among other things, the very fate of this Web site was discussed. 6/15/98
