Hello, everyone...
The mini yearbook is great! Love the photos, color, collage arrangement and all the people having a good time!

Please thank the photographer and his assistant for putting out such a special book.

Since I couldn't open Joann's letter, I'll check it out on the class website. Thank you Paul.

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Lafayette Eaton III


After graduating from VHS, I continued to live with my parents while I went to VJC (Solano College)for 1 1/2 years. Then I "transferred" to UC Berkeley, majoring in mathematics. Luckily for me, just about the time I decided that math was not for me I discovered genetics, switched majors and got a B.A.(!) and M.S. in Genetics there. Meanwhile I got married (1963) and my daughter Heather was born (1964). I then went to Stanford (1966-1969) and received my Ph.D. (Population Biology) in 1971. Melanie was born in 1968. I made the mistake of taking a job at Indiana State U. instead of staying to finish my thesis, I taught there from 1969-1971. In 1971 I went to the U. of Cincinnati, where I did teaching and research until 1973, when I joined the Peace Corps and went to southern Chile (with family) from 1973-1976, to start a genetic improvement program for Monterey pine. In 1976 I returned to the USA, got a divorce and saw a job offer fall through at the last minute. I worked in the CA. Dept. of Employment in Vallejo for a few months, then returned to Chile and got a job on the faculty of the U. of Chile. I did teaching and research there for 25 years, marrying my second wife Viviana in 1981 (at my parents' house in Vallejo!). If you want more information about what I did, you can put my "formal" name (Lafayette Eaton) on "Google Scientific".
I currently live on a small plot of land at the base of the Andes on the edge of Santiago, Chile. I have retired from teaching and research (well, mostly), I work from home doing Spanish-English translation and editing, mostly of scientific papers. I have one wife, 3 dogs, lots of fruit trees and a pretty tranquil, happy existence. If you read this and plan to visit this lovely stringbean of a country, perhaps on your way to Easter Island or Torres del Paine, write me or give me a call.
