They were just names - Margaret McNamara, Marva Sherer, Ethelwyn Sutro, Edie Horton, Amanda Stark, Ruth Grams, Sylvia Ziskind, Mark Taylor, Lois Miller, Mary Abrams, Hanna Barbera, Dorothy McKenzie, Beulah Bondi - names Phyllis Shlecter, RIFSoCal’s Chair Emeritus, said almost reverentially as she took us on a trip down memory lane. But oh the wonder of finding boxes of meticulously kept scrapbooks highlighting RIFSoCal’s first years - with pictures that brought them all to life. Get ready to visit the 70’s, hairstyles and all!
