1971 Television Interview
Thanks to Wendy Scherwat Ducourneau '72 , John William (Bill) Palik '72, and Elliott Vizansky '71 for identifying the individuals in the 1971 television interview Flashback photo.
While none were able fill us in on the reason for the interview, they did know most of the individuals pictured. They include, from left: Rick Williams '73, Brian Allen '71, Diane Sadowski '72, and Tom Cooke '73. Sitting on the floor is Julie Morrill Abbott '72.
Wendy identified the gentleman to the right as "Bear," but didn't know his actual name. Said John, "The dark-haired guy sitting in one of the few surviving pieces of Danish Modern furniture in the suite (we were very hard on that stuff) I could identify if I thought long enough, but I never knew him personally."
