Martha entered Lamar spring semester of 1955, on track to graduate in January of 1958 (thus qualifying her as a member of the Class of 1958), but she sped her way through Lamar, graduating in June of 1957. At Lamar Martha was a Student Council Representative, a Gym Leader, an Office Assistant, and a member of Mirabeau, Kachina, Christian Student Union, and the National Honor Society.
A native Houstonian, she stuck around Houston long enough to earn her BA in History at Rice, but then "They [Martha and husband Mike Kahn] moved to Pasadena, California for Mike's Naval duty and then to Palo Alto in 1964. Except for two short relocations they lived in the Bay Area ever since."
Please send any memories you have of Martha at, before, or after Lamar to me for inclusion in her In Memoriam entry on www.lamar58.org and in the next update.
