Attending Reunion



After graduating from OSU '62 and OU '64 and marrying Sara I left Oklahoma for Massachusetts to attend law school at Harvard and have been here ever since, practicing as a probate court and estate planning lawyer. I have my own law office, preferring the independence of being my own boss. Have had many interesting clients over the years, from Harvard faculty and elsewhere and handled some interesting cases. I got to know John Kenneth Galbraith pretty well before he died. I get my hair cut by Barack Obama's barber. (It doesn't get much better than that does it? You may be thinking "How could Ed Foster, that loser from Harding, have his hair cut by Obama's barber?" Well, it's essentially true, can't you let me have my one claim to fame, already?) Stlll enjoy working and have no plans to retire at this time. I fly to Oklahoma City every month to attend board meetings of Coppermark Bank where I have been a Director for several years. Looking forward to seeing classmates in June!

School Story:

While driving around on July 4 with Sam M., Harding '58, we were throwing 2 incher fire crackers out the window of my 1953 Mercury. I was driving and held one of the many fire crackers in my left hand between us for Sam to light. As I tried to throw it out the driver's side window I hit the vent window and the fire cracker with burning fuse bounced to the front seat between Sam and I. We looked at each other and then Sam made the ultimate sacrifice and sat on it as it went off. I can still remember the look on his face as the smoke curled up around him. For those who are wondering, he survived sufficiently to produce several children of his own.
