Memories of School:
The photos on this website have awakened many latent memories of my time at Nairobi School.
My fondest memories are focused on sports experiences there, especially rugby, cricket, and hockey, both at House and School levels.
I also recall building an 18-hole golf course that started near the front of school, toured the lower playing fields, crossed the oval, and went behind the san, to the upper fields between Rhodes/Nicholson and Hawke/Grigg. The greens were simply closely-mown areas with a coffee tin filled with concrete and a flag embedded, but it provided good practice for full shots and chips when we couldn't get to the Vet Labs course.

A sincere thanks to Steve Le Feuvre for maintaining this website.

Since Leaving School:Left Kenya in 1973 to attend college in the US. Discovered that the Nairobi School education prepared me very well for college in the US. Graduated from the University of Michigan with a Masters in Aerospace Engineering.

Have worked for the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory for 25 years on many different R&D projects for the US Navy and Government.

Married with three children ages 21, 18, and 11; living in Maryland, USA
