The recent Och Tamale article about liberal arts education was so well done! I’m passing it on to two high school granddaughters, and for their parents to read. Excellent writing. So clear and concise!

Sci-fi, fantasy and horror author Ray Bradbury visited the University of Redlands several times. Here, he informally addresses students and faculty in the Alumni Greek Theatre. Can you identify any of the students and faculty or have a story to share about Bradbury’s visits to the University? Please send your memories to Och Tamale | University of Redlands | 1200 E. Colton Ave. | P. O. Box 3080 | Redlands, CA 92373-0999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In response to our photo from the University’s Archives on page 43 of the fall 2015 issue of the Och Tamale, we received the following information by email:

“Real surprise to see registration picture from fall, 1958. My roommate, Ron Prescotte ’59 to the left in back of Marilyn Kerr ’59, with me Wayne Martin ’59, in front of them at table. Can’t place woman in between Pat Morris ’59 and me. It’s not my brain at fault—my search engine is going! All of us were class of 1959.”
Marie Duffey Whittington ’62 provided this information:
“Man at left in white slacks is Ron Prescotte. He coached freshman football in 1958ish.”

“I think the girl facing the table is me, Norma Steeples Dreyer ’59. I recognize the dress (Delta lavender), but I can’t remember the occasion. The guy behind me is Ron Prescotte ’59. What fun to see the photo!”
Maggie McKinney Steeples Gifford ’57 reports:
“Norma Steeples Dreyer ’59 is that cute girl standing with the sweater over her arm!! Good thing is she still looks the same!!“
