Skule Days, 1961-1965

The Class of 6T5 produced a souvenir album on the occasion of their 50th reunion.

Construction on the Berlin Wall began in 1961 as the CivE Class of 6T5 prepared for its first day at the University of Toronto.

During their four years of study, these students witnessed the height of the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the assassination of President Kennedy and three Stanley Cup wins by the Toronto Maple Leafs!

These experiences bonded the Class of 6T5 and helped to create lifelong friendships.

The Class of 6T5 highlighted these special connections in souvenir album, which was distributed to all classmates in celebration of the 6T5 50-year reunion.

Sue Joel (CivE 6T5) with Nick (CivE 6T5) and Marg Walker wrote, edited and compiled the album.

Sections in the album include:

  • Skule Days, 1961-1965: includes photos, memories and overviews of what happened in their four years of study, including Survey Camp
  • Recaps and reminiscences of past reunions
  • Highlights of the 50th reunion
  • Dedicated individual pages where each class member contributed personal memories, photos and updates about family and career.

The nearly 75-page album is clearly a labour of love. Thank you to the Class of 6T5 for sharing your cherished memories with the Department.
