IN MEMORY OF BETTY WOOD
Ron Osterberg ‘54
By being herself, she helped me gracefully ease back into a life that wasn’t all male. We talked about the things we talked about in high school with the added maturity of four years. Our lives had broadened. We talked about our choices of majors, how girls were more attracted to smart boys than in high school and how many once important things no longer were.
We talked about what happened to Alan Goycochea who joined the army in our junior year and had recently become a commissioned officer. Betty and Alan had gone steady in Junior High. She mentioned that she had recently taken an interest in Ed Cuen. I think her words were: “The more I see him, the more I like him.”
I didn’t see Betty after that summer. It is my loss.
