On January 1, 1960 when I was a junior in high school in Iowa, I began writing nightly entries in my 1960 one-year diary. On August 9, 1965 I wrote my last 1965 diary entry during the summer after I had graduated from Park College (now Park University) in Parkville, Missouri on April 25, 1965. I've compiled a Blogger platform blog in which I transcribed each nightly entry. Knowing the 50th anniversary reunion of our Park graduating class would happen September 17-19, 2015, I wrote periodic posts about the reunion that I had been asked to help plan. I now write a monthly post to keep A 1961-65 Park College Diary "current." It can be found at
