Mrs. Duffield's first year at Santa Cruz High was also my first year in Journalism. I became Sports Editor of the Trident. In my senior Year, she picked me to be Editor-in-Chief...followed by Jan Quivey as next Editor. Jan and I see each other in Portland on occasion...and chuckle about our common experience with Mrs. D. We all hung out in evenings at the Sentinel, taking over desks, and carefully restoring them to the condition in which we found them (most of the time). Mrs. D was an enabler with this exercise.
After editing my college newspaper, I went to work for the San Jose Mercury-News. After that, I went into broadcast media...owning radio stations in Portland and Kansas City.
This career in media began with Mrs. D---a unique woman....R.I.P.

Thank you for being such a wonderful lady...and a superb educator. You inspired my beloved brother in your class at Santa Cruz High. He learned so much valuable information to prepare him for a wonderful career in journalism. As he passed several years ago....I want to thank you in his behalf. Your legacy will live on in the education community in Santa Cruz - and in the hearts of many. Bless you Mary!
