My memory of the earthquake relates to a Board meeting that night. I
was on a ladder adjusting the TV sets in the lobby of the
administration building so Gene Houck could give us baseball fans a
peek. I saw the floor buckle and felt the ladder move. The Board
meeting was canceled!
I remember the Board discussion at the Livermore Campus about
deciding on a name for the new college. The finalists were London or
Jack London College (Jack London lived in Livermore as a youth) and
The Jack London Foundation was pleased and I personally was in favor
of that name. I was afraid the college would become another alphabet
college such as DVC rather than a Cabrillo, DeAnza or Chabot.
When LPC got its accreditation and became an official college, I was
the CEO of District and therefore for a short while President of LPC,
Chabot, and "Chancellor" of the District!........No change in pay!
As other things come mind in my experience, I'll be back in touch
