7 March 2011
I had lunch with Br. Al Conahan today at Jerry's Deli in Woodland Hills. After our meal, Al gave The Museum of the San Fernando Valley a great old, battle worn, Phi Delta Psi sweatshirt, and a gift to The Museum from Br. Clay Koerner in Bakersfield. Clay sent a bound book of Pierce College Round Up newspaper from 1964 to 1965.
Here are two photo-clippings from the book.

I recall Bob Puccini, but other than his initiation into our Fraternity at Pierce College, I know little more about him. My notes say that he was in the insurance business and that he graduated from Birmingham High School.
The recent acquisition of a 1961 Birmingham High School "Tomahawk" yearbook narrows down the likely time he pledged Beta Chapter. Since he graduated high school in 1961, he may have pledged that same Fall.
