Gamma Sigma Chapter
Delta Tau Delta
1964 - 1967
The last time you felt wanted.
Be patient, fools, for there are many, many
more of you where these came from before
we all become just dust in the wind.
The Shoe Box Monster
There is no editorial order to the following
pictures which were scanned at random as
they were collected from their safe home in
The Shoe Box in October of 2023 in
West Oakland, California, USA.
L'chaim, you all!
Who says lost time can not be found again?
Your safest shelter, 4712, around 1966
Pittsburgh, Pa. in 1964
One last picture may not tell it all,
but it can tell an awful lot.
That's all of the pictures in the shoe box
of boys will be boys (will be girls)
Will be monsters.
Thanks to Brother Russ Gourley,
who lit this fire in
The Shoe Box
The B side of this hit record
By posting these pictures on my personal web site,
I acknowledge the important influence, not always positive,
but never completely negative, these three years of American
college fraternity life had on my development as the
American artist I became. Why did all the picture
taking stop abruptly at the end of 1967, you may
ask? One word comes to mind. And that word is
Tet. Life for many American young men changed
direction, radically for some, never to return
to their former vectors in life, which seem to be
represented in these photos. So it goes. This page
will be as close as I come to revisiting that gone world.
While I don't salute you, Gamma Sigma, with
a warm affectionate smile I do remember all of you.
