If you are a graduate of Beverly [Massachusetts] High School in the Class of 1960, or were ever in our class at any point along the way, this is your website. These 64+ pages also may be of interest to others that were in high school with us, i.e., members of BHS classes of '58, '59, '61 and '62. There are links to the Ryal Side Elementary School page, the unofficial Camp Herrick website, and to many other Beverly related websites. You can submit pictures to share with your classmates, and enjoy well over 1,000+ images and photos already published here.


Our classmates, who voted to establish this site at the 41st Reunion in 2001, hoped everyone will use it to get in touch and stay in touch. We want to be able to contact everyone for the next newsletter, and reunion invitations. Please keep us updated with your latest email address and especially your regular USPS mailing address. If we have your email address you will receive about 2-3 unsolicited emails per year, always about BHS '60 matters.


Here you can post bulletins within the guidelines of this site. Announcements will keep you informed. Perhaps you can help us locate "lost" classmates (see list)? Sadly, there is also a list of those known to have passed away. The Webmaster will help you contact your old friends from long ago if possible.


Rest assured that no personal information will be posted on this site without specific permission.


See below for a list of Recent Updates to This Website. Below that list appears a few current notices.

2)  One of our old favorite websites, beverlyhighalumni.com, was shut down without any warning several months ago, so all references to it are in process of being eliminated from here (bhs60.com) website. I used to suggest that short autobiographies be placed on that website on the Class of 1960 page, and I supplied links in several places to it from here. It was run by Beverly High School, and was useful to many BHS classes. Don't know why this happened.

Emails "Gone Bad"
Attention BHS '60 Members: I'm in charge of communications to BHS '60 members. Since the Reunion Committee will no longer pay for snail-mail except for the Reunion Invitations themselves, I am limited to email. It is very difficult to keep email addresses up to date, so I'd appreciate any help here that you can provide. This is a list of those of our classmates for whom I once had a valid email address that has "gone bad." The point here is without a valid email address a BHS '60 member is "out of the loop."

Tribute to Al Baisuck (d.) From a Friend
From: David Knight <2dv8@outlook.com>
To: brandy_pond@yahoo.com
Sent: Sunday, April 17, 2016 3:43 AM Subject: BHS '60 Deceased Page Comments

I am inclined to write a short missive here in regard to Al Baisuck, a departed friend. I miss his quiet and soft spoken brilliance immensely. I was his friend for many years in silicon valley and feel it is worth noting Al was one of the great software architects and inventors of the high technology revolution. Al can be said to be responsible for the invention of Design Verification Software for integrated circuit design. Now an industry in the hundreds of millions. He leaves a trail of invention and innovation that will last for decades and longer. Al was truly brilliant and found time to be a wonderful human being as well. His innovation is missed and his sense of humor always remembered. Truly a great one.

All kind regards,
David Knight

A Note About Facebook

There are quite a few of our BHS '60 classmates that now have a Facebook page. Facebook is the number one social networking website worldwide. It allows you to easily keep in touch with many friends at the same time. It is a bit superficial, but fun. There are others from classes that were at BHS with us, those in BHS '58, '59, '61, and '62. People you may know are joining all the time.

Beware of All "Reunion" Pay Sites

All self-described "reunion" and "find your long lost classmates" type websites are suspect, at the very least, and if you have to pay to join, or to get access to advanced features, positively so. The only way you might find anyone is if that person also happens to join the same website you did. These sites publish false entries with actual names of some of your classmates. Think of a fisherman baiting a hook, or putting out a chum line (chump line, in this case). Some of us joined one of these years ago, and proved this. Because I knew the actual location of 300+ member of BHS '60 at that time, I could spot the bogus entries immediately.

If you have to pay, don't stay

Help!! Volunteer(s) Needed

NOTICE: I think this site needs a little reorganizing and revamping. We are open to comments and suggestion on this idea and anything else, for that matter.

PLEASE: If anyone with close ties to BHS Class of 1960 knows HTML, I could really use some volunteer help, on this site and especially the related Camp Herrick and Ryal Side Elementary School sites, as I do not really have the time to do everything properly.

Contact the Webmaster

Attention BHS Classes '57 through '62: Some of our classmates do not have their yearbooks anymore, and some never had one. Occasionally I get a query asking if a yearbook is available. Please consider sending unwanted yearbooks to the address you see here. Not to get overly morbid, just realistic, let your future heirs know about this. Unfortunately, when we pass away our yearbooks are probably tossed in the trash, when they could be making another of our classmates very happy. Thanks in advance.
