A look at some 1962 prices. Many things are ten times as much in year 2005, but, oddly, many food items are not. presumably farming efficiency in the US has grown somewhat faster than inflation.

Joe Cramer

In the class of 1962 up to his junior year, over the years Joe Cramer has become the "Wyoming Riddler." Puzzles for all occassions, his puzzle activities have a following of something like 40,000 now. Many of the puzzles can make your brain hurt.

It's reasonably clear that a talent like this is something some people have, and most don't. It's not taught in school. One just somehow discovers they have such a talent.

See his web site for a comprehensive look at Joe's life and activities, including a short autobiography, and mention of a autobiographical books that he hopes to publish.





45th Reunion



The class of 1962 invited the classes of 1961 and 1963 to participate in its 45th class reunion in 2007. Details of the planning can be seen at

Reunion web site

Bill Wiltse's son Bill was the event photographer, and provided the
