In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

Ever wanted to take a class at Yale?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take a course at one of those extremely expensive Ivy League schools? Wonder no more.

Yale has put a handful of courses on the internet ... and the price is right ... free.
They filmed the actual classes and you can download the video, download it as an MP3 file (audio only) or watch streaming video. These are entire courses - about 20 classes and generally run an hour in length.

You will need to go to the above title (it contains a link) and explore the departments and courses that are being offered. There are only a handful but I expect they plan to offer more.

And after watching one of the courses, you can always say something like this, "Part of my college education included Yale."

This is very interesting. I checked out their English and history courses. I would like to do one of these. Thanks for letting us know.
