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.

Book Being Published on Oliver Buntin

The book will be chock full with all sorts of stories, pictures, newspaper articles, awards, etc. Look at subject for Title - SIMPLY THE GREATEST. Some of you have seen my homemade book and a lot of you are familiar with people I talked to when I developed these stories.
The book is on the "launch pad" in countdown now, and I truly believe it will be in our hands later this year. My Uncle Bill Farmer in Choctaw, OK, has put up some money to start, but the publisher, also in Choctaw and great friend of my uncle, says we need about another $1000. I have a few sources including some Farmer relatives who may be willing to help with the cost. It would be great to have some Farmers because of our kinship to the Buntin family. If anyone else would like to help, they will be acknowledged in the book. They can get in touch with you, Ouida, or with me at 601-357-
0020. Thanks, Ouida, and Best Regards.

PS I am attaching the Miss Peg picture where Oliver was winning the National Championship in 1968 in Tonawanda, NY.
