From the Hammond High Class of 1959, we send our best wishes and thanks for having Bill McNabney as a major part of our educational experience. He was a great teacher, a gifted scholar, and community historian.
We invited Bill to attend our 50th class reunion in 2009 but he politely declined due to his poor health. In visiting with him on the phone, however, he was still very encouraging and shared some of this academic adventures while on staff at HHS.
He was an outstanding Mason and cataloged much of the Masonic history and their contribution to Hammond. We will be posting a tribute to Dr. McNabney at: hhs59.com, a pictorial history HHS, and downtown Hammond.
Richard Barnes, Ph.D.
