After two terms at Amherst in 1943-44, I joined V-12 and was sent to Union College in Schenectady, NY, which is the city where I was born. At the time, my grandmother and three of her five sisters were still living there. I got out of V-12 in the fall of 1945, and I graduated from Union in early 1946. I then went to medical school at the University of Rochester, graduating in 1950. After another stint in the Navy during the Korean War, I settled in Bakersfield, California, in 1953. I finished radiology residency, then joined an established Radiologist in 1957, continuing practice with him until he developed Alzheimer's disease. In 1990 I eased him into retirement and worked four more years alone, finally retiring myself in 1994. I have never been married. Retirement has been pleasant so far. I spend most of my time in Bakersfield, but make frequent daytime trips to Los Angeles, the mountains, the desert, and the Coast. I have also made a number of trips east to family affairs and to events at Union and the University of Rochester. I am in the classes of 1947 at both Union and Amherst, and I have attended some of the Union reunions over the years, but never any of those at Amherst. Now I have the time to go to both.
