|Howard has written "Catholic University of San Diego and Womens College" on the border of this photo, which he took on January 12, 1958. I'm not sure what memories it might evoke for a Crawford grad.
Wow - USD!! My fondest memories were the Good Time Dances at the gym. I recall Fairfield Steeleworks playing there. I was a surfer dude back then. Brings back memories of being jumped as I walked out of the boys bathroom. No doubt a group of roughnecks that didn't like surfers. We would park at Frances Parker High, get high on Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill Wine with a beer chaser and walk on down to the gym along Friar's Road. Now, my partner Connie Umbarger and I do a lot of Real Estate work in the Bay Park area, just behind the university. A long journey since those days in the summer of 71 -- Tony Flores 72
My father worked for Ninteman Construction Co., which built USD. They also built the Naval Amphibious Base in the 1940s, and did the refurbishing of Balboa Park in the 1960s. It's wonderful to be able to see some of the beauty my father left behind in San Diego! -- Linda Cotton Anderson 61
