More old photos



Janice sent in a couple of old photos from back in the day, when me and Janice, Laurie, Val, Kay and Lynette all worked on The Driftwood newspaper at the University of New Orleans.

Anyone remember the name of the person sitting in front of Michelle? I think she only stayed a semester, and I think she was news editor.

One of you Driftwooders should put a cutline on this sucker and ID everyone. I've seen the picture before and still from this distance I can only make out Val (Mr. Cool) and Lynette.

Laurie is on the left, then Kaye, then Michelle sitting behind the unknown editor, then Val, then Lynette, and then me. I think it was taken my first year at UNO which was my sophmore year. Michelle and I were both 19. That year, Michelle was features editor, I was photo editor. I think Kaye had stepped down as editor in chief but was working on layout and creating graphics. Not sure of when that happened, she had a hiatus, stepping down as editor for a while then returning as managing editor when Michelle took off for Germany. Val and Lynette were graphics. As Laurie would say "I just do ads"

Was this spring '83? Were we living on D'Hemecourt? Anyway isn't that the features editor Christine?

kateco said...

and where's the U in the UNO? there might be someone in there that would give us a clue to when this was.

Michelle said...

Michelle Wallace and Kurt Spanier are on the U. I think that mystery chick is Christine.

Janice said...

Ok then, I'm wrong about the year. Maybe it's the year that Michelle was editor? But, if Kurt was there,it might have been when Kurt lived at D'Hemecourt. He kind of disappeared from the driftwood scene after that.

nice pic of you Michelle, someone deserves a prize, you would never let anyone take a picture of you.

Janice said...

Freda, I have many more where that came from

I dropped the ball on the recent weekend assignment -- too tied up in the painting, but I'm going to send in some late entries soon. Got to do some scanning.

hey Janice, I don't know if anyone checks this far back, but I'd love to see some more pics.
