Since 2007 is the 50th 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 website at www.sjc58.com. I have added to their website a feature that I didn't have available last year and that is a discussion forum. I have now added a similar forum to our website. Feel free to give it a try if you are so inclined. It is at www.sjc57.com/forum .
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 http://www.saintjosephscollege.ws/. Bill Wall (Rhet '63) has a very detailed account of a day in the life of a seminarian at St. Joseph's at the "memoirs" page at http://tinyurl.com/2vyjym which also has some other articles and a photo album.

|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|
|Here are a bunch (about 60 +) pictures of various members of our class at various times and places.||Class members|
|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.
