The next day, the Washington Post ran a short article about the
concert. Dexter Flood carefully preserved the clipping, and sent
us the picture at left (click it for a larger image). Dexter has identified some of the students
visible in the Post's photo: at center front row in glasses and plaid
pants, Ellen Vogel; Dexter is to her right, and to his right is
Bernadine (Bernie) Greene. If you recognize anyone else, please let us know.
|The Coke can which is sitting on the Duke's
piano at the left of the
photo still exists. Dexter and Ellen sliced it in half, Ellen
kept the upper part, and Dexter has the lower part, seen at
right. This gives a whole new meaning to the concept of splitting
a can of Coke with someone!
Thanks to Dexter Flood for the photographs and information.
