WELLESLEY … High School, not College


1950 was the year that I (and my sister Peg) graduated from Wellesley High School. It was also the year that 13 of our classmates joined us for a weekend at the Chatham Crest on Cape Cod. It was our final fling !

The picture that you see was actually taken by a “Life” magazine photographer and used in an article on graduates living it up at the beach. The only thing was they got it wrong. They thought we were Wellesley COLLEGE students !

My friend Gayle (smack in the center of the picture with the Wellesley sweatshirt) sent this to me recently and I have to admit that I barely remember being there. But pictures don’t lie and I’m the 4th from the left on the couch and my sister Peg is the one on the other couch who is lying down and has a big grin on her face.

I guess we were a tame group compared to today’s youth but we managed to have just as much fun … and we always did it en masse !

Did you know that I was missing from that photo?...OH! it is all girls!

But that IS my era and I recognize the accouterments (and 'dress code').

So even though this is not "all about me"--grin! I did retrieve some memories from your very VERY 'neat-o' pic, from the year 1950 (actually I was 1951).

Thank your thoughtful friend Gayle for me, also!
PEACE!

I would be almost ready to bet that you had more fun. Today's kids work hard to convince themselves, but we just had it in our innocent way.

Cool pic!
Tho I followed you by a few years, it doesn't seem that we had to try as hard to have fun as kids do today. And kids today can't imagine that we had any fun back then.
