  The Edgar Brown stadium was donated by Edgar Brown who was the grandfather of Judy Brown, class of 58.

  I can't swear to the exact year that the stadium opened (1957 sounds about right), but I do remember a terrible incident related to readying the stadium for the first game. One of our fellow student's (Gloria Sandusky, as I recall) father worked for the power company and they were installing the field lights. He was electrocuted and the Tri-City Herald ran a picture related to the incident on the front page. They lived just down the street from me on Marie Street, about a block from Henry Bistrips (sp) woodshop building.

Happy 4th from my "tough" job here at Seaworld San Diego.

Hi all.
  On Edgar Brown, he had a couple of large gravel pits in town, the one which is now our stadium was dug and shaped for such a purpose, the second was located just west of PHS (large grass area) and was filled in about the time PHS was built. He gave the gravel pit to the school district if they would name it after him. Great guy.

Re Edgar Brown Stadium:
  I recall it being the city dump around 1950. Was that the official dump, or did people just dump stuff in the gravel pit?

To Larry Green:
  Thanks! I tell my kids that when they grow old, if they expect to be defended (at all costs) by whatever or whoever is attacking America at that time, they will want to have served in the military. I spent 2 years in Ft. Hood, TX, with a group researching how computers could be used to aid Battalion & Division commanders manage and view battlefield information.  I remember writing a cross-assembler on the CDC 3300 for the CDC 1700 which gave the civil servants 8 tests a day, as compared to 2 per day using the CDC software.
