Mickey, writing to www.Mar-Ken.org on November 3, 2005:
I did go to Mar-Ken for the first 5 years of grammar school. That would be from around 1938 to 1944 when I left and went to St. Ambrose School in Hollywood. From there to Blessed Sacrament for 1 year then on to Hollywood High and I graduated from St. Monica’s in Santa Monica Ca. On to Loyola U., the Navy, back to school and finished at Cal State Northridge in 1964. Life after Mar-Ken and the rest sent me to work at American Airlines for 30 years. I retired in 1995 and don’t know how I ever had the time to go to work. Retirement keeps me busier [than] when I was at American. I am a tour guide of historical tours in Boston and surround communities as well as a Justice of the Peace for the Commonwealth of MA.

By Mickey Kuhn . . 5th Grade
Easter comes but once a year,
The bunny never forgets to come here.
He brings eggs so pretty and bright
And hides them so I can find them in the daylight.
Some are green and yellow too,
Some are pink, red, white, and blue.
Some are glossy, some are dull
But the ones I like best of all
Are the ones I find by the garden wall,
In baskets big and baskets small.
