Richard Rahl ’55

November 17, 2022

From Richard Rahl: My wife and I were in the end zone where the touchdown was made, so we could see the whole thing developing in front of us.  We were in the Stanford section because we have a mixed marriage – I graduated from Cal in 1955 and Boalt in 1961.  She graduated from Stanford in 1964.

The famous Oakland Tribune photo, which I recall was named the top sports photo for that year, was in black and white.  I think I may be the only person who has a color rendition of it.  I started doing needlepoint about 50 years ago and I have done over a hundred pillow size projects, but I think this is my favorite.
