Leslie Wilbur

Recently I authored a book titled Destination USC via Luck, Pluck, and the GI Bill. It was based on a series of my stories published in Hawaii after I had retired from the faculty of the USC School of Education. I transmitted a copy to Dr. Janette Brown, Assistant Vice Provost of the USC Emeriti Center. After reading it, she invited me to establish a website, with her assistance. I asked myself, “At the age of ninety-three, what use would I have for a website?”

Henry B. Clark II

Since his retirement in 1994, Henry Clark was been able to explore his interest in writing fiction and actually wrote several novels, one of which has been published, Trophy Boy. Not only did he spend hours upon hours writing, he also became something of a front-line political activist, mainly in a small organization called The Alliance for Democracy, founded by Ronnie Dugger in 1996.

Steb Chandor

Since retirement, Steb has remained an active member of the medical staff at the USC University Hospital and Norris Medical Center, performing consultative duty. He also continues to teach medical students and pathology residents at USC.

Later served as fund-raiser for the medical school, head of fund-raising and public relations for the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy, public relations director for the College of Continuing Education, and finally, as director of public relations for the Kenneth Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital. Retired in 1992.

Carole W. Gustin

While Carole was no longer paid to work at USC, her love and commitment to the Trojan Family kept her quite busy. She became Program Chair of the USC Staff Retirement Association in 2003, and in 2005 she became the SRA President, a position which she held until 2009.
