Yes! Attending Reunion

Was a Municipal Land Use Planner in California for 28 years. Now I am restoring historic properties in Portland, Oregon. I also write a semi-monthly column on topics of local Historic Preservation for Northwest Renovation Magazine. Also give walking tours of interesting, historic neighborhoods in Portland. Oh, and when I have the time for it, I enjoy being semi-retired....I have also spent much extended time over the years exploring the U.K. I wonder if Niles West produced any other confirmed Anglophiles besides myself? I spent three years exporting British antiques from Australia to the U.S. -- back in those carefree days in the early 2000s when the U.S. Dollar was flying high.

School Story

So many, hard to pick just one. Maybe being part of the Dixieland Band Padukadukes (Paducha Dukes?) for Redskins Review. Being a minstral show in blackface would certainly never fly today -- nor for that matter a program called Redskin's Review. What a different world it was then...The most somber high school memory I have is of course the day Kennedy was shot and hearing Dr. Manos sobbing over the PA system. I was never the same after that. I mean, who was?

I enjoy your missives Jack, and they bring back good memories of 5140 Suffield Court...and Terrace. All the best, David Steinberg Noel

WOW! Paul Hain and I went by your house on Suffield Court in Skokie on our way to the JANE STENSON 2014 REUNION on the Friday prior to the Niles West Bash. I flew to Portland on the day after the Niles West Reunion, and spent a week with friends in the woodlands around there. I will tell Paul that you have surfaced. Also, my family and I lived in South Reislip, England, and Ingrave (outside of Brentwood), England, in 1986 and 1987. We moved there from a home we built in Ootacamund, Tamil Nadu, India. My office phone number is 9164643793, and email is david.noel@dhcs.ca.gov

Great to know you are on Earth! Best, David Steinberg (Noel)
