The

Concordian

Vol. III, 1954 – 1955

This Month, meet the Column Editor of the Concordian, her husband, and her children. The husband — Donald Cleary. The wife — Pat Cleary. The address – 633 Alwick Avenue.

Don was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., but states that the hospital just happened to be there. His family was actually residing in Queens. He is a graduate of John Adams High School in Queens; attended RCA Institutes, Inc. and is now studying Engineering at Brooklyn Polytechnical Institute.

He served with the Army Signal Corps from May 1941 to October 1945 as a Technical Sergeant and spent a good bit of this time in England, Ireland and Scotland.

Don is employed by the firm of Hogan Laboratory and does electrical engineering. His interests include amateur radio transmitting (a “Ham” to the initiates) and plugging for the N.Y. Yanks. At the personal invitation of his boss, John Vincent Lawless Hogan, he became a member of the Institute of Radio Engineers.

Pat was born in Jamaica, L.I. and attended Bishop McDonnell High School in Brooklyn and Miss Dunbar’s School of Business. While in High School she was a member of Sigma Gamma Phi Sorority.

Before her marriage, Pat was employed as Secretary to the Eastern District Manager of the Dayton Pump and Manufacturing Company.

In her spare time, Pat assists in soliciting funds for the Red Cross.

Don and Pat were married in May 1947. Their two children are Kathie, 5 1/2 years and Peggy, 2 years.

We have told the story as it happened and was told to us and have tried not to put editorial emphasis on any of the facts. Nevertheless, the facts themselves seem so crystal clear that in their light, Mr. Siegel comes off as a man with a job to do.
