Who do you remember?
I remember most of them, even though it was 5 years before I joined.
But then again, I am old!

The only one I can't place is John Dotterer?? I remember attending at 12 years old.

This is so cool! I was only 9 at the time, but I do remember all these wonderful people, other than John Dotterer. Joe seems to think he went to school with one of his children?

I remember Mr. Dotterer from the Harry Lundeberg School when I was working there in 1971-72. Apparently, he was the Public Works Supervisor for the Navy when the place was the Torpedo Testing Facility, After the Seafarers International Union purchased the property, they hired him to be the maintenance supervisor, as he knew everything about the property, electrical, plumbing, etc. He had a son named Joe a year or so older than myself that also worked there.
