Judy, can you follow this link
to the thread of Susan and my comment-versation just now? and/or see my second comment under Lawrence (Dick) Lawson, In Memory
i.e. i wonder if you could ask Lawson's wife if there were any pieces of his writing or links to such, or sources where we could buy copies—info we might put on his in memory page, or somewhere on this site so classmates (like me) could read some of his written work, and thus his work live on in us?—in all due tenderness. long sentence huh? hope you can get the gist. grateful ole marty my/our heartfelt sorrow to his wife.

as i also said on Dick's page, "Susan, I wonder if we could get a piece or two of Dick's writing to share here among us classmates, or references or links as to how to get copies for ourselves. Us writers (and inventors) live on in our work. I would sure love to read some writing by Dick on any subject, in any genre, even technical—i'll bet he snuck himself into it even when he mightn't be spose to. Robert's writing has me very curious as to what his friend might write as a writer." And thank you for YOUR wonderful sharing from your heart (and mind!).

dear John. it is wonderful to hear you speak about your life and your passions. it fills with wonderful form a relatively silent, mysterious classmate in elementary school whom i don't recall encountering in junior high or high school—likely because yes each hall was larger than most other high schools, as much as your perhaps continued kindly meek silence.

I have fond memories of your presence at Orrington School, even or especially with the minimum of interaction i observed. a kind of gentle mystery that's stood with me until this many years to this speaking out. i am grateful for the whole journey, and again most especially grateful for the new-or-fulfilled view this website gives all of us of each other. to me it is way more than any other form or media of reunion or even classroom could afford. kind of fantastical magical.

i have whistled misty all my life, along with o-o-o baby baby, ebb tide, a white sport coat, probly since i first heard them, as i walk or bike a path or road or sidewalk alone, going anywhere of peace in some common, blessed quality of joy, a habit born, perfected, and first-borne on my walks from home at 2024, the eight or so blocks up & down Orrington to & from school. i actually have nearly always blended the two, misty and ebb tide, back and forth into each other and out, balancing and pivoting on the three notes-and-meter they both appear-to-me to begin with.

i do love your rendition of misty. and also have enjoyed watching it with the sound off as a graceful soft dance fully as beautiful and soothing to my eye as the audio is to my ear; an odd-view pure visual aspect, i offer you, of musictosoothe.

i remember coming clearly conscious of my love of the solely-visual motion/installation/performance art of a musician dancing with their instrument(s) in absence (or oblivion) of sound at a renown child violinist's solo performance at a vast ETHS auditorium where i was with my mother way way up at the back, and i was stunned at how beautiful this dance was visually, even (or especially) when i didn't pay attention to (or struggle to hear) the sound. that was probly before i was in h.s..

i enjoy greatly your hands' rendering of misty, with and without sound.

hope you do, John. ole orrington classmate! grateful to see you on here.

dear Richard. bless your family in your mourning. i and a number of others of our classmates are cancer survivors, and others too gone. ¶ a college classmate of Roy Guttman (ETHS 1964) and myself, Wink Pearson, has said to me and others this year, "Roy and Alan were my good friends too - a universal perception I believe. A reflection on their character/generosity more than a measure of our magnetism. … A truly humble, compassionate teacher and guide in a chaotic world. That we still miss them reminds us again that length of life never correlates with the mark we leave." ¶ sendin you love.

i like the idea of a plaque there right nearby!  Rick please let me & us know how to enact that.  bless us each.

Jun 08, 2018 at 3:33 PM


interesting that their office address is

5600 S. Woodlawn Ave., Suite 400
Chicago, Illinois 60615

i believe 3 blocks W. of where Roy died, April 22, 1968.

thank you Rick for your research & dedication!  i think this is excellent, short of running our own.  it worries me that they liaison between the police & the victim, where the CPD have a long tradition from our day to now of producing the victim, and racistly so.  but maybe they can effect change in even that.  bless their best intentions and ours.

  i suggest posting this on our Message Forum and on our Home Page at some point.

     bless us each with peace & community, however brief.  grateful ole marty

i just magically google-found Roy's younger brother Myron.  he is happy if i post his reply to me on this page:

Dear Marty, Leo and Stanley,



What a wonderful surprise to hear from you! And yes, you found the right person. Fifty years is a long time, but there’s hardly a day that I don’t think about Roy and my parents. Your email brings back wonderful memories of our lives in Skokie, and my times with Roy and his friends in Hyde Park.


Thank you for all the wonderful things you wrote, as well as for the links to the class of 1964 web site. I wouldn’t have known where to look for it.


As you figured out, my wife Barbara and I have been living in Boulder for the past five years.  It’s a wonderful place to be, with lots of opportunities to be outside and a beautiful mix of small college town and city life. Barbara and I met in the summer of 1968, and we’ve been married for almost 48 years. We have a son, Robert, who lives in New York City with his wife and two children. We spend a lot of time with them, in an otherwise quiet existence. You found me, so you’ve figured out that my professional life is well known and not worth saying much about. Mostly, I’ll say that I’ve had a lot of fun, and continue to do so.


If you make it to the reunion, please enjoy yourselves and give our love to everyone who thinks of Roy and the rest of the Gutmann family.


With best regards,




Myron Gutmann

dear Victor. thank you for your dear Mr. George comment today on the Message Forum. to me it stands tall & sacred beside your posts in 3 locations here on our website on your experiences while in the Army from 1969-1972. i had related evolution in heart & fashioning in h.s. from my hand-drawn marine emblem book covers and delight in playing & drawing war scenes at Orrington School. i applied for Conscientious Objector status I-O as a sophomore in college, forced Draft Board 100, Evanston to consider it by not applying for Student Deferment my senior year, appealed their "no" decision 3 times, receiving a "yes" before graduation. served 2 years non-military Alternative Service as a lab technition in surgical research at IU Med Ctr in Indianapolis' west side, Oct 68 - Oct 70. so far, i'm aware of 3 of our classmates who achieved I-O status from our very reluctant Board 100. i deeply recall and appreciate the gentle countenance i knew you to bare throughout the Evanston school system. again, i particularly appreciate your sharing your brief encounter with Coach George.
