Ann, LOVE your comments. Glad to see a Fellow Christian graduate from AC. Seems most who post on the reunion site have learned nothing. Sad but true. Howard Colby

Very nice to see you on this alumni site, Howard! Please post some pictures of you and Marjorie; and tell us a little more about the last 50 years! I enjoyed your comments about Dean Blackwell and the Chicago church. I began my WCG days on Blue Island Avenue in 1959.

First met Dean in the Chicago church in 1957. His Bible studies at the time were on the early history of the church and he would bring in dozens of his books and read to us from them.

His Sabbath circuit included St Louis, Chicago and Milwaukee. Actually went with him on one ocassion to these services. St Louis was Friday evening not far from where the ball park was located so we'd get to hear the cheering from the stadium. Then it was off to Cicago for the late morning service there. Shortly after concluding, it was back to the car and driving to Milwaukee. It was a grueling circuit and left you exhausted.. But meeting all the church people was a great blessing. I met Ken Fischer in Milwaukee and later his son would be one of the students in my Jr Hi English class. Met the Steeps there as well. I wish my memory was as Sharp as Andy Voths. So many people came from that Chicago congregation to attend AC and later work in Pasadena.

But I'll always remember Dean Blackwell and his foundation building from history of a much different Church than most have been exposed to.
