Mary Jo Linville (Deichler)

Thanks so much to all the committee members for planning another fantastic reunion for all of us to enjoy.  It was a great party and such a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with old friends.

I don't know who is in charge of maintaining the web site but it is so well done and such an excellent tool for all of us to stay in touch.  Thank you!!

Carole and I have been unable to attend the reunions because they have conflicted with the Jewish sabbath, so I was happy to be able to at least view the last thirty minutes of this one on streaming video.  Kudos for that.

The idea that we are all about to hit the half-century mark is pretty scary.  It seems like just yesterday that Mr. Meckley was chasing me around the school and wound up suspending me over sideburns.  Ah, the sixties!

Best regards to everyone.

Many, many thanks to Margaret, Eddy and each member of the reunion planning team!  It was a fun weekend!  I enjoyed visiting with folks at the Friday evening gathering and then at the Saturday party.  We are blessed to have a group from our class who are willing to invest the time to bring us back together.  Again, thank you!

Sorry to have missed you Bill.  You always were a fine young radical. How simple sideburns seem today!  Take care and keep posting.

Chris, I turned into a fine old radical conservative!  wink

Bill -

As fellow Vandy AND Wolfson alums sorry you had to miss the 45th Wolfson (it was GREAT to connect with so many) - hope we can connect at the 50th!

My wife, Margaret Hooper (Vandy alum also) and I have attended all our 5 year reunions @ Vandy, but this was our first Wolfson reunion.  Must admit we will be more inclined to attend the Wolfson 50th and not the Vandy 50th!

Will be interested to learn about your conversion to "radical conservative!!"

Greg, thanks so much for the picture of you, Tube and Russell. You guys never lacked attention from the girls. I also enjoyed the picture of Glenn - always loved that hair.  Carol Kuhling, where is she now?  If any of you have pictures of Russell from days gone past, please send them to my email at My mother, his daughers and Angel love seeing the old pictures. You all are so special to me and my family!

Bonnie is way too kind, but I wish I could have been at Ed's house Tuesday nite.

Earl Owen Mc forgot to take his tie off.

Dick, regarding my conversion to radical conservatism, it's been so long that I don't remember!

Actually, "radical conservatism" probably isn't the right term.  I am mostly libertarian.  I've always had that impulse, it's what motivated me to defy the school's hair code our senior year.  When I decided to go to graduate school in economics, the University of Chicago seemed like the obvious destination and that is where I wound up.  I missed Milton Friedman by five years but did have the opportunity to study under Gary Becker, George Stigler, and Bob Lucas.  The end result for my politics is that they are mostly synonymous with the Wall Street Journal editorial page.

The real change in my life occurred around the time of our marriage, when Carole and I gradually adopted a more observant approach to Judaism.  That proved to have profound effects on our lives and our careers.

Actually, I think Bonnie got it right.  You guys are the best!  Bonnie, didn't see you at the reunion.  Missed you!  Xoxo Christy

Dale Kelly,

We posted in the class of '70 Message Forum, the obituary for Susan Vanzant Hassell.  Thank you for letting us know.

So happy to see these old and new pictures.  

So sad about Carol Ann Tindell and Susie VanZant Hassell.  

I had a nice phone chat with Carol Ann two years ago when Roy and I were in Ellijay.  She was her same energetic self, would have known that voice anywhere.

My favorite memories of Susie were her brilliance and her sweetness.  In Girl Scout days her sash was covered front and back with badges. 

Love ya'll, Survivors.

Happy New Year everyone.  I wasn't very active in Wolfson activities except the Drama Club.  Is there anyone who remembers me?  And what and how do you remember?  I have memories but the names have gotten tangled up with the activity.  I hung out in Ms Wilson's office a lot.

Will Ms Wilson and Ms Blair be at the reunion?

Shirley Louise Atkins (Hartman)

Would LOVE to see Pat Blair (Guidance) again! Funny lady! She was the chaperone Jan Taylor, Pam Hiller and I had during a summer tour in Europe in 1968 (along with a few Bolles boys and a slew of Lee kids). Saw her a couple times during my college years but then she disappeared. 

Have been looking for Pat and Ms. Wilson in conjucture with our 50th reunion. Anyone have any idea where these two ladies are now?

01/17/19 12:45 PM #187    

Shelley Andriesse (Anckner)

Does anyone know Pat Blair's and Ms Wilson's middle names?  Ms Blair went from Wolfson to a college in St Augustine to counsel.  I don't know where after that.

We honor thee, dear Wolfson

A friend throughout our days.

Unfurled in noblest pride.

It's a little bit dim but if you enlarge or put the readers on :) you can see the titles. Remember when radio stations used to leave stacks of their current playlist at record stores all over town (remember record stores?).  I used to spend hours at the Record Bar on Forsyth Street when I was actually supposed to be at the library around the corner. Found a bunch of these in a box in the attic a few years ago. Here's the one where Crimson and Clover was #1.  This was also the week that I bought Led Zeppelin 1 with some birthday cash and I was more obsessed with guitar shred than slow dance (still am) but there are some prog rock tracks mixed in here too. It's amazing how musically diverse top 40 radio was back then and how long the playlists were. Cox and iHeartRadio play such a small list of songs so repeatedly..60 currents..that's a blast from the past truly.

I would go to the Record Bar every Friday after I got my paycheck from Clark’s Market, and I would buy a record or two!

I fondly recall disposing of a lot of disposable income at the Record Bar and Abe Livert's. Which one had the store on the right just inside the front door of Regency Square?

Elizabeth Aka Shannon West Breedlove

There was a Record Bar at Regency..I think I was in Tallahassee by that time. The crew at the Forsyth street store knew me obviously and would tip me off to new stuff. I got some pivotal albums like Are You Experienced, Led Zep 1, Laura Nyro's "Eli and the 13th Confession" , and  Miles' "In a Silent Way " before they were even reviewed in Rolling Stone. (Obviously I found the Allman's "Live At The Fillmore East" on my own and bought it first day out) When I got to FSU I got a job at an indie record store across the street from campus and lived on cheap bad-for-you food so I could spend all my money on music and concert tickets. Needless to say the music I spent my money on wasn't very popular in a freshman women's dorm ;)  On one hand I love it that I can go to Spotify and hear new releases and really obscure older stuff, and that I am on there so much their algorithm knows me enough to make the discovery playlists relevant but it doesn't compare to the experience of walking into a record store and the guy/gal behind the counter going "when this came in I knew you would love it" and turning you on to something magical
This is a piece I wrote for an online music magazine about losing that experience.
