  1. Hi Dan. How can I purchase a copy of your book “Jocks”?

  2. Thanks for this update. Many writers I know are keeping them in their thoughts, and we’re all waiting anxiously for news.

    Can you recommend how I can confirm that my Mom Josephine Cognato (maiden name) graduated Staples approx (she’s 88) Class of 1944?

    • No real way. I don’t know that a registry exists. I’d say check out yearbooks (at Staples and the Westport Library), and/or microfilm of newspapers from that year (which usually listed graduating classes). Sorry I can’t be of more help!

    • If she’s 88 she would likely have graduated in the Class of 1948.
