(1) Quite a few people recognized the beloved Willamette figures in the large photo last issue. They are, of course, members of the Office of Admission circa the 1970s: from left to right, Dennis Reese ’73, Buzz Yocom, John West ’73, Frank Meyer, Al Berglund. Sitting is longtime Director of Admission Teresa (Krug) Hudkins ’69. Michael McKiernan ’74; Jay Jamieson ’75; Robert Foster ’72; Paula Schuster ’72; Katherine Schlick Noe ’74; Bob Woodle ’63; Joan Whipple Reese ’75, JD’79; Nancy Wolff ’71; Scott Greenwood ’83; Leslie Hall ’76; Lisa Meyer ’86; and Kay Barckley ’74 all contributed their memories of these folks.
