|Loretta (Benton) McCollum - Charles McCollum and I met again as hippies in 1969 and have been together ever since. We married in 1970 and have four children and four grandchildren. Charles quit UC Berkeley during the protest years and became a finish contractor. He made beautiful things and never worked a day in his life. He retired at 62. I went back to school in 1975 and became an RN, and then a nurse practitioner. I'm set to retire the end of November, 2016. We moved to the mountains of Southern California in 2011. [Charles died 31 May 2020.]|

Martin Draznin -
My wife Tacie and I have been living in Kalamazoo since 1991,
the longest I've lived anywhere since I was a kid in Concord. I'm
still essentially running a racket. I do academic medicine (Pediatric
Endocrinology, don't ask) at a community medical school campus, lots
of interesting kids to see, medical students and residents to teach,
the odd article to publish so my colleagues at other institutions
don't think I've retired or died, and, and, and, I get PAID for this!
I'm still dabbling at amateur radio (N5TRF). Had to stop the Tae Kwon Do
after getting to Third Dan and mostly teaching adult beginners for awhile,
knees got too sore. Studied Samurai Sword for four years, until my shoulder
wouldn't take it any more. Too bad, it's a great art. Beer brewing stopped
when I finally got too much steam from boiling up into the over the range
microwave, which died a spectacular and smoky death. Had a chance to hunt
plains game in South Africa. It was eye opening, and mind-boggling in MANY ways.
Our son just (2009) got married to a classmate from medical school, after he
finishes his residency in emergency medicine and she finishes her post residency in
Master of Public Health, they hope to work for the Indian Health Service in
New Mexico for a few years. Life in Michigan has been pretty darn good to us.
Martin contributed The Brain (He loved to learn) to our "What Was It Like?" essay collection.
