(1) The “SENIORS” generated buzz last time: Trish (Evans) Hall ’63 called in because she saw herself on the far right. She helped identify the others as (left to right): Mike Farra ’63, Joann (Gay) Gloege ’63, Merle (Gillespie) Maust Rosecrans ’63, Anne (Martin) Lee ’63, Pat Mclarney ’63 and Tony Good ’63. Pat Mclarney, Ralph Litchfield ’60 and Sally (Bowe) Beaton ’63 corroborated, though one of the young ladies might in fact be Sally.

(2) Shelley (Markwell) Biss ’98 and Kirk Masterson ’97 identified Nich Anderson ’95; Alicia (Wright) Scanlan ’97; Ray Fordyce ’95, MAT ’96; and Georgina (Larcher) Phillippson ’98 in the promotional shot for the musical theatre production of “The Pajama Game.”

(3) No readers wrote in about this photo — probably because it’s from 1894. These ambitious folks climbed Mt. Hood, we’ve learned.
