On the coffee table of Tony’s beach house, where we’ve been staying in South Haven, is Richard Applegate’s very entertaining pictorial history of the area Photographic Memories Grand Rapids: Josten’s Printing and Publishing, 1996.  In the section on sports, of which SH has a proud tradition (they always beat our asses), is a picture of 6 SH footballers sometime around 1900, before and after the game, p188.  I think Jim Harbaugh could use it for motivation

Mr. Applegate identified the combatants as C.O. Monroe, Harold French, Arthur Ryall, Howard Webster, Harold Webster, Calvin Donahue, and Arch Haven.  I’m sure their descendants are proud of them.

I retired from the Rheumatology division of Michigan Medicine end of June '19 after 36 years there. Upon hitting Ann Arbor for the second time (I went to school here) it took me almost 8 months to meet Kathy, 17 months to buy her a house (on Harbal, where we still live), and 37 months to marry her. Kids never came, but we've been blessed with a crowd of colleagues, friends, neighbors and family that continues to grow. Lots of them are going to show up in this log eventually. Stay tuned.
