And the Story Behind the Last Photo Is …
The photo featured in our last issue prompted a few alumni to email us with clues that helped us solve the mystery. We thank them for weighing in, and we look forward to hearing from more alumni about the photo included in this issue.
From Michael Qualls, M.S. ’77:
Well, the only person I really recognize is Major Tom Middleton, front and center of the photo. I know that I have changed since then, but I believe that the stocky guy (the second person behind Middleton in [that] row) may be me. I have lost some weight over the years but do still have the mustache and glasses. I could not find the binder that has my notes from my classes then, but I believe that the professor was Dr. Lombardo—an excellent instructor, as I remember.
This was taken in one of the classrooms we used on Fort Meade. The classes were for the Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice. The time [is] 1975/76. I completed the requirements for graduation in the summer of ’76 and was on my way overseas to Germany at the time the graduation was held Dec. 22, 1976.
From Joseph S. Jenkins Jr., M.S. ’78:
I am the person in the far right in the back. The picture was taken at Fort Meade, Md., circa 1976. It was a criminal justice class.
From Kathryn J. (Harrington) McCloud, M.S. ’77:
The picture on p. 22 is of students [in] UBalt’s criminal justice master’s program, taught (at that time) at Fort Meade, Md. The picture would have been taken in 1976 or 1977; the handsome guy in the center of the picture is Major Thomas Clinton Middleton Jr.
