I grew up living across the street from Academy Square on First East. To us it was always known as the Lower Campus, and we played on the lawns on the south and west and among the buildings. An abiding memory from those days is the sound of music that poured from the practice rooms in the basement of College Hall on the east half of the block. We played our games to the accompaniment of endless scales and practice compositions. We attended B.Y. High School in the Arts Building on the northwest portion of the block, and additional classes were held in the other buildings. Plays and weekly assemblies were held in College Hall. The Mens Gym on the top floor of the Training School Building on the northeast part of the block included such features as a great pole to slide from the dressing rooms down to the gym floor, exercise ladders, and a ping-pong table in a caged area above the Gym.

The old high school building we used was torn down several years ago, in fact it was very old when I went there. I see info on the Class of 1948. In 2001 at the reunion, there were 7 of us attending. It is sad when you find that well over half have died. I feel very fortunate, I am 75 -- still going strong, doing many things that I probably shouldn't do." @2010

"Seven Keys to Baldpate" 1. Wildcat Yearbook staff 3. ~ ~ ~ ~ Carma married Richard Anderson. Her parents: Gerrit de Jong, Jr., [Professor of Fine Arts at BYU from 1925 to 1972] and Thelma Bonham de Jong, married in 1951 in Salt Lake City. Gerrit and Thelma had three daughters: Belle de Jong Van Wagenen [BYH Class of 1936], Nola de Jong Sullivan [BYH Class of 1942], Carma Rose de Jong Anderson [BYH Class of 1948], all of Provo, Utah. @1995 [see More Info link.] Carma was recently been editing, writing, and swimming in 750 pictures and permissions because BYU Religious Studies Center has published her 1992 Ph.D. dissertation. She just turned 75, but is going "like a house afire" on publishing deadlines. It is a big $125 book, edition of 5000. @2007 ~ ~ ~ ~ In 1935, Rosabelle and Gerrit de Jong's exquisite new Dutch colonial home on University Avenue stood close to the BYU Academy which, restored, now serves as our Provo Library. We gardened our own food and carefully cared for making our own clothes, with as little spending as possible. But the Great Depression was never mentioned to me in kindergarten or later. I thought we must be the richest people in Provo! Our parents called us all away from any activities whenever we could be together. Prayer was of utmost importance to us. Often I was a tardy child in putting down my art projects, or coming in from play outside, sometimes finding all the family kneeling around my parents' bed and impatient for me. I would sink down by Daddy, and then wiggle my freckled body under his. I felt more secure than inside a guarded tower! I pressed my cheeks into the crocheted bedspread my Dutch grandma had elaborately made to grace our new home. The warmth of that home was all around me; the huge, kindly forces of my father were encircling me, and it seems there was a channel straight up to heaven, filled with my father's voice in prayer. From the age of 5 in 1935, I attended grade school at the BYU lower campus "Training School," a practice teaching ground for our education majors. At recess, sunny or snowy, I was often tempted to dash with a friend up the flight of stairs to Daddy's office of Fine Arts, 204 in the College Hall Building (both buildings now gone). There stood Dean Gerrit de Jong's big oak desk, with a seemingly endless array of tiny drawers under the roll top. Daddy never looked at me in his life without a smile, so immediately from one hidden corner he would reach for his stash of chocolate, either real Droste Dutch or Hershey American. He shared for our ravenous palates that sensual aroma and tranquilizing taste of what essentially contributed to my handsome Amsterdamer daddy's linguistic ability to write and lecture in six languages, or his musical inspiration to compose. His bloodstream was pure chocolate! Carma de Jong Anderson is both an artist and a consultant on historic clothing and textile restoration for historic sites of the LDS Church. She is a mother of four, grandmother of 10 and recent great-grandmother. Source.

Class of 1948. Lyman Durfee. BY High band 1947-1948 ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Lyman Durfee passed away on February 25, 2012 and he is finally free from pain, pills, and all of the ailments that have lived with him the past two years. Lyman was born in Aurora, Utah, on January 30, 1930, to LeGrande and Alima Durfee. He graduated from BY High in the Class of 1948. He then graduated from BYU with a Master's Degree in Accounting.

He met his wife of 52 years, Donna Nicholson, in the BYU International Folk Dancers, and in his younger years taught square dancing and social dancing. Lyman loved jogging and working in his yard until arthritis infiltrated his body. After retiring he spent fifteen years going to assisted living centers playing the piano and singing, including Orem Nursing & Rehab where, ironically, he spent the last few months of his life. Lyman is survived by his wife, Donna, his children Ryan (Melanie) Durfee, Jason (Pauline) Durfee, Janae (Bob) Church and Dallin (Memorie) Durfee, twelve grandchildren, and his siblings, Lola Jenkins, Merrill Durfee, Myrna Herde, and Leila Costello.
