The Class Birthday Card

  List of Known Class Birthdays
 

MOST OF US IN THE GREAT 

ARE NOW APPROACHING
(or have recently passed)
80

 

 

With a few outlying exceptions ranging all the way from 1940 to 1945, almost all of us were born between March 1942 and April 1943. So most all of us are (or will be) celebrating our 80th birthdays between March 2022 and April 2023. (Some born before 1942, however, are already there!)

 

Interestingly (maybe, or maybe not?), of the well over 300 known birthdays of our currently surviving classmates, the most common birth month among them is November with the most common known birthday being November 30th. One can only speculate that many of our fathers shipped off to war near the end of February 1942 (less than 3 months after Pearl Harbor).


Happy Birthday,

 

Here's a
Classic '60
For Our Classy


 

Known classmates' birthdays: The charts below contain chronological lists of over 300 known classmates' birthdays during each month of the school year.  Women are listed by their maiden names. (The classmates' birth year is indicated next to the month except where otherwise noted parenthetically.)
 
If you are not receiving birthday cards annually from us, it probably means  we don't have your birthday or your correct address so let us know. If your birthday (or that of any other classmate you know) is omitted below,
please send me an e-mail, and report it to me.
