In the summer of 1953, Bell High School students tossed their maroon graduation caps into the sky and set out to conquer Cold War America. They did pretty well. One landed a starring role in a Tarzan movie and played some pro football; another became a surgeon and went on to run a medical school's pathology department in Milwaukee. But somewhere along the way, the Bell High Class of '53 forgot a simple ritual--the high school reunion. When 1963 rolled around, no reunion notices went out.
