Westmont Magazine Golden Days
The class of 1948, the last to study on the Los Angeles campus, celebrated their 50th reunion in May. These “Golden Warriors” marched in the Commencement ceremony with the class of 1998 and spent two days meeting with fellow alums who graduated between 1938 and 1948. About 40 people participated in the weekend.
Activities included a lunch with student leaders on Friday, two mini-classes with Professor Niva Tro (chemistry) and Professor Marilyn McEntyre (English), and a dinner with Paul Wilt, professor emeritus of history, who is researching the early years of the college. At brunch on Saturday morning, the Golden Warriors heard from President Winter, sang favorite hymns, and watched a slide show celebrating Westmont’s heritage.
Members of the class of 1948 who donned cap and gown once again included: Leonard L. Burwell, Helen Fleisher Cox, M. Patricia Tilden Davies, Willetta Hanson Edmiston, Wayne Seelye Flory, George Hansen, Paul W. Hoffman, Jeanette Kistler Krause, Verna Spieker Krogh, Don Morford, Donald L. Norbie, Robert W. Ross, Martha Currier Schade, Sigmund C. Schade, Eleanor Tate, Edward Tuggy, and Paul R. Wiley. They received a tremendous ovation from both graduates and guests.
