SITE ORIGIN: Somehow, I got in the
middle of an e-mail between Jack Lasater and Bill Williams. Jack was asking
Bill if he could act as a depository for the e-mail addresses for the Class of '52. I butted in (those who know me best will
not find that to be a surprise) and suggested we put up a little web site for the class. They both said "Go for it." The
rest, as they say, is history. ~ b. d.
JIM 'BUDDY' DANCY ('52) ~ Webmaster.
