Lee (Hardy) Oswalt


From Carol Himmelberger Dixon's profile (without permission)


hi all, it's good to know I am not alone in remembering Connie Lee Tanner, tho I know we each have different memories of those times. I remember those of us who were "Yankees" went out of our way to greet him and try to make him feel just a little bit welcome, tho I know that by and large he was not. Those were difficult days for me and others who were thrust into a strange culture and onto the midst of the Civil rights turmoil. Yes, he was quiet, and as was said, he was probably scared to death. I hope Charles can locate him and invite him to the reunion.

What do Alan Hoskins, Mike Langley, Glenda Sanders (Motes), Vic Ruffalovich, Linda Chandler (Page), Nancy Ball (Miller), Lee Oswalt, Elvira Heybey (Butterworth), Richard (Dick) Klock, Doug Lyle and Mike Mckinney have in common?

Over the Christmas holidays in 1945, after World War II and when it looked like a normal future was possible, they were conceived. Of course this assumes a normal 9 month term and it is possible other classmates belong in the group. It has always been fun for me to think of myself as a Christmas present.

Nancy Ball (Miller)

Now THIS is too funny!! I haven't pondered the timing of my conception at any great length, but I will say I have a mighty cute picture of my parents (dad in uniform, mom looking quite pert, wearing a hat) sipping cocktails at the Pump Room in Chicago, Christmas 1945. And I was born September 25! ;)

Karen Beyerle (Binkoski)

Yep, Nancy, lots of hotels near the Pump Room, Chicago. Your dad certainly had style!

(And what cuties both your parents were :)  Miss them both. )

Some of you may be curious about the special characters used by your computer for e-mail, twitter, Google, etc.

The following web site provides an interesting article on the subject.

Hardy Oswaldt - I have located copies of two  obituaries and would like to send them to you.  Would  you like them to be in Adobe or whatever system..


The students are:  Herbert Del Tyson and Lyndon Faulkenberry.


I will send these copies first. 


If you find others that you have worked, send them on and I wil obituary search.  I am pleased with the number that I have been able to locate.


Annewhite Thomas Fuller 


The Bill Frazier whom I am searching attended our 30th reunion at the Roundhouse.  He lived on Harrison - either the house on the corner or the second one in.  The house was partially renovated and cleaned out in the past 10 years.  I have not seen Bill in a number of years.  He suffered with some mental problems.

Great work, Annewhite!  Thanks for finding these.

I see that the obituary for Del Tyson has been located. How can i access it? he was a good friend of mine back then. Thanks for your hard work! I am also pleased to read about everyone's experiences of Connie Lee's coming to our school and how each person was affected by that-and for those who went away to college and had experiences with those of other races-it just warms my heart!

Who is collecting the checks? All I see is credit card payment information.

Hi Peter!

Ron Carter is taking the checks.  His address used to be there and I hope is still is somewhere.  The process as devised by the site is somewhat confusing.  You can mail the check to Ron at 3229 Riley Road, Huntsville, AL 35801 or simply give it to him at the luncheon on Friday.  Hope you are well.

OK, this is getting just a little tooo freaky... And why didn't we notice this before 50 years had passed?

I sat and talked to Connie Lee Tanner at the benches by the bus stop one afternoon while we were in high school.  I asked him why he wanted to go to HHS.  He said that he could not get the science courses he needed at Council HS.  He needed the science courses for the school he wanted to go to.  I asked him what he wanted to study after high school, and he said, "Don't laugh." (He was serious).  I said I wouldn't and he said that he wanted to study mortuary science so he could be a mortitian.  I told him that I thought it was an honorable profession and was sad that he couldn't get what he needed at Council.  I had heard a rumor that the NAACP had bought his books for him because apparently, he came from a poor family.

Interesting conversation.  Thanks for sharing it.  We tried to find him early on and couldn't.  Several have shared experiences with him.  Some don't remember him actually graduating with us.  My memory is just not that good.

Jessica Dykes (McGee)

It appears that the 50th reunion of HHS was a tremendous success!  Sorry I had to miss. Congratulations to the entire committee for the planning and execution of the plan.  Looks like everyone had a wonderful time.  A special thanks to Charles for his excellent organizational & commicational skills.  All was very much appreciated,

I want to say "THANK YOU" for the hard work of "all the classmates" who planned and hosted the HHS Class of 1964 50th Reunion! What a wonderful experience -- it was great to see so many smiling faces and realize how little we have changed -- just older and wiser. At dinner I sat at a table with classmates from Florida, Virginia, and California, rewarding your efforts by coming from far and wide to participate. I want to also say thank you to Charles Gattis for the flattering pictures of us all - allowing us to have memories to share with our families. 

Best Wishes to "The Class of 1964"

Stay Happy and Healthy - hope to see you all again in 2024!!!!!!laugh

Charles and all who worked to hard...once again my many thanks for all of your hard work. You did an excellent job and your efforts were really appreciated!

Jessica, I was so looking forward to seeing you! Since we both live in TN maybe we can get together here.

Charles and all, thanks so much for all of your work!   "Pat Morrison" (now Trish Bolian)

Connie Tanner did not graduate in 1964 and I think that was the only year he went to HHS. I, along with several others, was "being made an example of" for poor academic preformance. We were not "allowed" to be seniors with the rest of our class, but were classified as juniors until after summer school. Connie Tanner was in "my" junior home room in1964. He was the son of a sharecropper. His family lived on a farm owned by one of our classmates. Sorry, but I can not remember who.
