Irma & Mordy Bauman:
closed the door on Indian Hill in 1978 when we left Stockbridge
and moved permanently to our apartment in Greenwich Village. In
2000, a year before he died, Don Emerson insisted that we create
a web site so that Indian Hillers could discover what their fellow
students were up to and share pride in each other’s accomplishments.
of our young friends agreed to set it up and it was listed for over
five years as wilchfort.com/indianhill. Ben Wilchfort, who did not
go to Indian Hill, took great care of the web pages, keeping track
of 200 early signers-on.
Canoni, Nora Guthrie’s daughter (and Marjorie Guthrie’s
granddaughter) would like to create a website where IH alumni can
communicate with each other, share your current activities and fill
us in on the past thirty busy years since most of you have seen
hear from former students more often than we ever imagined would
happen. It is a reward we don’t take lightly; it has kept
us alive well into our nineties.
the past few years Mordy and I have worked together to write our
memoir. Thanks to the help and persistence of an old IHer who decided
he would design and edit the work, the book is completed, entitled
“From Our Angle of Repose.” When it is available we
will let everybody know. A great section of it, of course, is Indian
Hill. Mordy says that it never occurred to him that he was creating
something of such lasting importance to those teenagers who still
tell us how much those summers meant to them.
