MLML 50th Celebration – Part II

By Jim Harvey (2 September 2016)

We are starting to get some of the pictures from the MLML 50th Anniversary celebration, so for the next few blogs I am just going to post pictures from the weekend. All the following photos were taken by David Schmitz. Please comment as needed. I will try and identify people but I will need help.



On Friday afternoon (5 August 2016) we had a VIP Reception, a few photos from that event.

Then on Saturday morning, the MLML clan began to assemble. For most the day people reminisced, caught up, and toured the lab.

The entry way started to fill up by 1100.

L to R: Mickey Singer, Carol Greene , Keiko Sekiguchi,  Jo Guerrero, John Hunt. I need help identifying everyone else


All of the labs were photographed although some people missed their allotted time and did not make the lab photo. I have added many lab shots here, but did not list all the people. So if someone wants to make a go of listing all the people in your lab’s photo, I will amend this blog.

  1. What a fabulous gathering, and the “mixed “(up) group is of course the Salinas “trailer trash” years.
