When The Museum receives anything, an immediate effort is made to document its arrival. Today, March 5th we acquired two year books from Birmingham High School. I looked through the senior class pictures to see if any of our Phi Delt brothers were there. Here's a great photograph of Br Michale Tozzi just before he pledged the Beta Chapter of our Brotherhood. No doubt he looks a lot like this photograph 50 years later.

Brother Robert Malone was born in 1942 in New York state. He graduated from Birmingham High School in the San Fernando Valley in June of 1960. (The photo above was taken at that time.)
Brother Malone was initiated into the Phi Delta Psi Fraternity in the Spring of 1961.
When Bob finished his studies at Pierce College, he transferred to CSUN where he earned his Bachelor's degree and later a California State Teaching Credential. He worked during college at a decorative glass company, making customized mirrors. Later he taught elementary school in Saugus and in the nearby Sulphur Springs School District. He retired from teaching after 28 years.
Bob and his wife Lynetter hare two sons Robert K. Malone III and Matthew. Bob's chief interests lie in computers, technology, cooking, current events and music.
This week The Museum of the San Fernando Valley received two "Tomahawk" yearbooks from Birmingham High School. This is a senior picture of Br. Stu Olster, who looked here very much like he did when he was among the founders of Phi Delta Psi's Gamma Chapter at San Fernando Valley State College. Later the chapter became the highly successful Pi Kappa Tau, with Br. Olster as a major leader.
