■ English Class 
    Masanori's Lecture                                                                                      
Masanori's lecture was on the many uses of the word "over."


Walt's brother Jack came to our class to talk about Walt. His talk was about memories from childhood in North Dakota, and life in Japan, and was very moving. Thank you Jack.

We were able to watch a video about Walt from a PBS broadcast televised in 1986, and a music slideshow of Walt's photographs, collected by Sanae and Akie and made into a movie by Doug.

We also learned about Walt's youth, background and activity from newspaper articles published when Walt was a college student, in 1956 and 1957 which Rosalie found and sent to us. And we heard many stories from Jack. We felt that Walt had a splendid life.
