1967: Civil Defense Club

I'm second from the right. I was more or less drafted into this august body of men due to my recently having acquired a General Class amateur radio license. This allowed me to operate all of their radios. There was only one other ham in this picture. Can you spot him?

No, not the guy with the pocket protector; good guess though. It's the guy in the lower left. As I recall his father and mother were chauffeur and housekeeper to some rich family. This was in Greenwich, Connecticut. I was fifteen, nearly sixteen.
