Welcome to the web site of the

Westfield High School
Class Of 1962 (New Jersey)

From September 1959 to June 1962 a little over 400 of us residents of this planet Earth shared at least six hours a day, generally five days a week, and almost 40 weeks a year in the company of one another. Then, on June 21, 1962, things started to change. We went our separate ways.

  • Some of us immediately jumped into the work force or military service.
  • Others continued their education at schools far and near.
  • A few of us continued to live in the same house we occupied as students at Westfield High while others began a practice of changing hometowns many times over many miles.

Almost all of us have kept in touch with a handful of friends from those high school days, and few have failed to wonder every now and then, "whatever happened to ...?"

In the Foreword to the 1962 Weather Vane yearbook, it was written
There is perhaps satisfaction in reflecting on past gains, and certain pleasure in relishing the good of the moment, but joy, happiness rests only in unrest, in the yet unattained goods to come.
We've let more than a half century come between then and now, and perhaps now is the time to let ourselves reflect on past gains, to pause, look back, and reconnect. We had a reunion — the big one, the golden, the 50th — in September, 2012. (Click here for Reunion Wrap-up.) Now we are thinking about having another.
Whether you attended the reunion or not, however, let's take the time both to reignite memories of our high school days and to share with each other what we have attained in these many years.

This web site will help in that pursuit. Please visit often.

Class Directory

Over almost two decades, Gerry Madea maintained the authoritative directory of the members of the class, the Classmate Contact Information Document (CCID). Sadly, Gerry died in early 2019 without plans for turning over the responsibility for maintaining the directory. Some classmates, pictured below, have stepped forward, engaged in numerous zoom meetings, and attempted to reach out to all our classmates to keep these records up to date.

Pictured are Bob Willard, webmaster; Kim Peck, co-webmaster; and committee members Carol Robbins, Jock Waltman, Sandy Neuss Mitchell, and Dottie Hoff Clarke, chair. Missing from the picture is committee member Bill Tittle.

When you register for this website you are encouraged to enter address and phone number information. You can select whether general location info displays to other registered users of this site; it is never displayed to the general public or made available to search engines. Specific street addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers are available only to designated website administrators.

Please notify the Webmaster of any changes to your contact information.

Gerry regularly emailed updated copies of the CCID to classmates. If you need a copy (the last edition was prepared in August 2018), just ask the Webmaster.
A new Class Directory was prepared in October 2022 and was emailed to classmates with correct email addresses.
