Class Notes: 1950

Class of 1950

Tom Trombetta writes: This is my first attempt to be included in the alumni section of the California magazine. I am currently more than 98 years old, a veteran of WWII (1944 to 1946), disabled, but still trying to meet the challenges as best as I can. I received my master’s in economics in 1950 and my teaching credential in 1954, both at Cal. Because I was married, a father, I had to work during my Cal education, so I did not take advantage of all of the Cal benefits. I did give away my two tickets to the Rose Bowl in 1950! My pain was somebody else’s fun. I served as a teacher throughout much of my career, including in Japan, retiring in 2000. I still correspond with my former students in other countries.
