Oy! After high school I went to Madison, spent my Junior Year in France and accidentlally got a Masters in French...(a long story).  But I didn't really like teaching French and so I got married, got a Ph.D. in French Theatre..(another long story), studied Mime and became the Associate Director of the Wisconsin Mime School in Spring Green, got a divorce,  started a professional outreach theatre company in Milwaukee in 1974 (Friends Mime Theatre), was partially paralyzed in an auto accident, took over the company as Artistic/Producing Director in 1996--now called Milwaukee Public Theatre--and am still at it!! (Whew!)

Thanks Jack for all of your hard work to put this together for us, it's wonderful.  I love the music!

The past 50 yrs. have been a whirl wind of hard work, fun and travel. Remember when our parent's would say "Time goes faster when you are older" Boy Does It!

After high school I went to Methodist-Kahler School of nursing in Rochester, MN.
I worked at the Mayo CLinic for a while, then moved to the cities for a year or two; then back to good ole Wisconsin.
I  retired in 1987, out of the VA hospital where I was responsible for heart, orthopedics, and inservice education.
We continue to travel the world and are still doing it. We've been on all seven continents.

May 14, 1943 NYC Board of Ed (retired) Single 1
 After graduating from college, I came to New York City and worked a couple of odd jobs while I got my teaching license. I taught high school English in Manhattan and the South Bronx for 14 and a half years. Then I was a guidance counselor for 15 years.

During those 30+ years, I also raised a son, traveled as much as I could and dabbled in art.

In retirement, I have volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and Clearwater, studied Italian, t’ai chi, watercolor, Chinese painting, pastel drawing and ceramics, have traveled to China, Ecuador, Italy, Greece and Southeast Asia, visited my son, his wife and my two grandchildren as often as I could (wherever he was stationed) and finally have had the time and energy to take advantage of the myriad cultural opportunities New York has to offer.

June 17, 1943 Retired Teacher Married 2
What a life after High School!

In the Fall of 1961 I went off to Whitewater State College.  During my Senior Year I sat next to a cute guy from the Track Team in a class called Revolution and Reaction.   By August 1965, we were married and have shared a life of love, laughter and challenges.

While I earned a BEd at UW-Whitewater, my husband, Arlyn earned a BBA.  We both continued our education at UWM.  I got my MS while he got an MBA and became a CPA.  Our entire working years were spent in Wisconsin.

We raised our son, Crist, and daughter, Andrea, in Whitefish Bay.  Crist went off to Johns Hopkins and did his graduate work at MIT.  He lives in California with his wife, Rachel, and the joy of our lives, Granddaughters Josie and Cassie.  Our Andi went to Georgetown and returned to UW Madison for her graduate studies.  She lives in Maine, and yes, we do travel coast to coast a lot!

"Retirement" has been a very rewarding time for me.  Quilting has become a great avocation.  I not only make quilts, I design them.  Best of all I share my knowledge and skills teaching others.

In 2004 my husband retired.  Since then we have lived in Trempealeau, WI overlooking the Mississippi River summers, and Queen Valley, AZ in the foothills of the Superstition Mountains winters.  We have enjoyed traveling all over this Great Nation by plane, Amtrak, and car.  But, best of all are the Falls here in Wisconsin at Badgers and Packers Football games.  We've been to two Rose Bowls and several other Bowl Games, but haven't won the Super Bowl lottery yet.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at the Reunion and the Brewers in the World Series!

January 22, 1943 HR DIR (retired) Www.naeir.org Married 1
Amber and I moved to Galesburg, IL in 1990 where I became The minister at Central Congregational Church, a wonderful historic church in the heart of town.  Many of you are aware of the difficulty I experienced in Brookfield, and I learned that it was not possible at that time for me to bounce back.  In 1992 I decided to leave active ministry and enter the corporate world.  I became an agent for Country Companies Insurance (Farm Bureau) for the next 5 years and enjoyed it very much.  Many of my clients were farmers as Galesburg is a rich agricultural area.  Amber, in the meantime, taught piano and organ, and accompanied the choirs at Knox College, where our son, Rob was enrolled as a voice major.  He graduated from Knox in 1995 and is a wonderful singer.  Professionally, he entered the newspaper industry and is currently the regional editor for papers in Bay City, Saginaw, and Midland, MI where he and his wife, Claire are raising our 4 delightful grandsons:  Owen - 9, August - 7, Asher - 5, and Ellis - 3.  In 1997 I was asked by Gary Smith, President/CEO of NAEIR (National Association for the Exchange of Industrial Resources) to become their Director of Human Resources, which I did for 15 years, retiring last July, six months before my 70th birthday.  You might want to Google www.naeir.org - it's a pretty neat nonprofit organization.  This week Amber and I will celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary.  We still live in the beautiful 1920 expanded bungalow we bought in 1990.  There are photos on my Face Book.  (Robert B. Clark). We are actively involved in First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) where Amber is the organist and I play tenor sax and flute with their excellent praise band,  "The Quest."  For a number of years I have taught classes in Supervision, HR Management, and Labor Relations at Carl Sandburg College here in Galesburg, which I will continue to do this fall.  I also lead a 16-piece Swing Era dance band called The Rootabaga Jammers, which I front with my clarinet, much like Benny Goodman did back in the day.  It is great fun and quite a hit around these parts.  The band is actually an "activity" of Carl Sandburg College and is made up of community musicians who all volunteer their talents - including me.  Carl Sandburg was a native of Galesburg, and the band name is in reference to a rootabaga he mentioned in one of his poems.  I find it interesting that I eventually wound up doing what my closest boyhood buddy, Jack Dresdow did professionally.  It has been a rewarding career, and Galesburg has been a great place to live.  Amber and I feel richly blessed by God, and we seek every day to live out the THANK YOU.  Bob

May 19, 1943 Retired (engineer and teacher) ReynoldConger.com Married 2

I am looking forward to connecting with old friends at the reunion.

After high school, I earned BS and MS degrees and chemistry before becoming a school dropout (from a PhD program). After 30 years working in the paper industry, I was forced into retirement by the economic situation. I then taught high school for 7 years (science and math). I got roped into being an assistant track coach (distance) one year.

Now fully retired, I live in New Mexico where I hike, run, garden and keep bees.

I also write fiction as a retirement career. I have published 5 books. Two more in the works. Check them out on www.ReynoldConger.com. My blog is rjcsite.wordpress.com.


I wish I had the hair in my then picture.  My hat now hides a bald head.

February 08, 1943 Human Resources/Labor Relations, now finally retired! Married 3

Right after high school, two years at Whitewater, followed by a two year stint in the Army.  I then worked in the Milwaukee area until I married a DePere girl and moved to Florida. I finally graduated at the old age of 30 from the University of South Florida and stayed in Florida until 1998, moving to Oregon City, Oregon, where I love it. Still married to that DePere girl and have three children in three states with no grand kids. I spent my entire career in Human Resources and Labor Relations, in both the private and public sectors.  My job now is the best I've ever had - called 'retirement'.

I still count my old classmates at Waukesha as some of my best friends. Although I haven't lived in Wisconsin for a long time, it is amazing that we have maintained close relationships only through occasional visits, telephone calls, and now emails. Through time, I've observed that our old group has kept a good camaraderie. There are such notable achievements of those I know from high school. We were and are, quite a class and quite a high school, and I pay tribute to the adults in the community that gave us such a fine school and culture to help us become responsible adults.

During retirement, we've done some road traveling and, since moving from Florida to Oregon, I've found great enjoyment with hiking and backpacking in the Cascades. Recreation on weekdays without the working stiffs is great.

The 50th and 70th Birthday Party was great and the reunion committee did an outstanding job.  Thanks to this very hard working group.
