[Yearbook] Bruce Kent


In the first set of photos taken at the old Staples High on Saturday, August 13, Bruce—in his best Malibu attire—made an unannouced visit to our old alma mater, determined to give old Stanley Lorensen the benefit of 50 years’ hindsight on his most keenly felt high school disappointment: having to travel all the way to Norwalk to find a decent supply of drugs and their absolute refusal to deliver to Westport…! Finding the doors locked, and feeling dejected, he wanders away wondering what happened to Katie…

Nevertheless, after a well-deserved afternoon nap back at the motel, our intrepid Bruce makes a full recovery and moves on to take some memorable photos at the Red Barn and, the following day, at Compo Beach…
