Tom Ruggles sent me this photo of the Coast of 1950. I know the date, because the leader at right is Tony Ambrose, '50, and I was playing was my freshman year. Others I can identify are trumpets: George Howard, Wheaton, Chuck Knudson, Bill Hovey; trombones: Dunklee?, ??, Walsh?, Rand?; saxophones: Jack Bethel, Wayne Keller?, Paul Simel, Shepherd, Roger Mathes; drums: Lee Sarokin; bass: Tom Wilson; piano, Dick Lezius; leader, Tony Ambrose.

Please help with these identifications...(thanks, Jack Morgan)
