Welcome to the page for that special class from Logansport, Indiana.
57 was a GREAT year.... remember?  Even the cars that year
were spectacular.  How about the '57 Chevy or the '57 Ford?
They are classics to this day, just like the classmates of that year.
This page is being provided by a group of classmates who wanted a web presence for the LHS Class of '57 .

Here is the link to the LHS CLASS OF '57 private Facebook Group.
This site is only accessible if you belong to Facebook.

This is the St Joseph's Class of 1953 as they got together
n May 24. 2003 for their "Family Photo"
Picture provided by Pat Wolf Loner and date corrected by Rose Caldwell Cabrell's husband Ron.
Pat remarked, "Unfortunately Buzzy Iles had just passed away a few weeks
prior to our reunion. But everyone else except PHIL Berndt made it. Sure was fun."

Left to right are Larry Long (deceased 4-16-05), Dave Loner (deceased 8-26-07) and Joe Kasch who joined teammates at an American Legion Baseball Team reunion held in Logansport during the summer of 2003. The team played together beginning in 1954.  Coach Bob Hunter organized the reunion attracting several members of the team sponsored by Legion Post 61. (Picture provided by Tom Castaldi 7-5-04)

Sports were a big part of high school life. We all enjoyed
going to the games and cheering the Berries to victory.
We are including a
Sports Page with clippings
from various sources about some of the games.
If you have something you'd like added, contact Tom Castaldi.

Here is a picture of the late Madeline Ricciardi Vose (died March 15, 2009) from a web site in 2002
She had been an AKC Agility Judge and breeder; her own web site no longer exists.


Rex Shuey, Jr, has his most recent novel available for us.
Revenge Of The Hero
  After nearly a quarter of a century in the U.S. Army, author Rex W. Shuey, Jr., retired as a Sergeant Major and is now living in Italy with his Italian-born wife, Maria. Shuey was born in Torrington, Wyoming and raised and educated in Indiana, graduating from Logansport High School in 1957. He entered the U.S. Army in 1962 as a Military Policeman, and served in South Korea, Germany, and Italy, in addition to the United States. He graduated from the Sergeants Major Academy in 1980, and obtained an Associate in General Studies from Central Texas College.

You can find more information about Rex's book on the Internet.  There is also a great photo of Rex, his novel, information about the story and excerpts from the novel that you'll find may just entice you to order the book.
