Hughes Fellows Meet in Westlake Village
September 4-8, 2012

2012 Herbert E. Lindberg

For many years, Walt, Dick and I have been getting together the first week of September to renew friendships developed in 1952 to 1954 while we were Fellows at Hughes Aircraft Co. in Culver City, CA.  Dick and Walt stayed together longer, after I left for Stanford and the Bay Area in September, 1954, but eventually we all became separated by distance as we moved from one engineering assignment to another.  This is the 60th Anniversary of accepting a Hughes Fellowship in Howard Hughes' first Masters Degree class.

You can click on any of the pictures to open a larger image in a separate tab.  Note that when your cursor is over the larger image the cursor becomes a "magnifying glass."  Click to see the image in full size, centered on the cursor position.  Right click on the image to bring up a menu from which you can save the image to your hard drive.  I strongly suggest that you put your web browser into full screen (if you have a computer screen large enough that this makes a difference).

Don't forget to close the separate tab (or tabs) as you go along so you don't clutter up your browser with a lot of open tabs.

Morning ritual -- Dick and Walt work out crossword puzzles.

Lorraine had made copies of a series of puzzles of various kinds and put the sheets on the table.

Walt's typical expression of emphasis.

Next morning -- another puzzle.  Dick says he works them out early every morning when his brain is fresh.

Meanwhile, Herb relaxes between sessions of reading Budianski's book, Battle of Wits

On our last evening, Hazel had invited nearby offspring of Walt and Dick for visiting and dinner.

Close up with Serena.

Serena is only 6 and a natural entertainer -- look at those hands!

Crop into the above picture for a close-up.

Couldn't resist another picture of this charmer.

Hazel with her ready smile -- another charmer.

Lynnette at the Jacuzzi pool -- a photographer's dream.

Serena -- constant motion.


Hazel and Mary, a happy pair.

Dick yelled, "Sunset" so I turned and snapped.
