From our classmate John Stark April 4, 1968. Spring Break. David Sullivan and I arrived at the De Vargas Hotel in Santa Fe to a scene that I can’t erase from memory. Around the corner from the historic old town plaza, white rednecks in the hotel lobby were celebrating news of Martin Luther King’s assassination, drinking to their good fortune. Sully & I were appalled, but theirs wasn’t an isolated reaction. According to Jesse Jackson, the FBI in Atlanta jumped on tables in jubilation. Dr. King’s assassination still shocks me 50 years later.

Have any of you seen this historic house? South Mesa Trail (south Boulder). Built by Doris DeBacker Bykerk`s great uncle. This portion of the Dunn House was built in 1875 by John DeBacker. DeBacker sold the house to John and Emma Dunn in 1901. The Dunns raised three children in this house. Their daughter, Ruth Dunn Helart, in an interview given in 1982, recalled the Dunns famous berry bushes and apple orchards, remnants of which can be seen just south of the house. Although this area was covered with farm buildings and stone walls which served as fences, the only things you`ll see now are the foundations of the buildings and a few walls that have survived the years.
