About The Tiger Den Web site

I first envisioned an alumni web site just for my graduating class, GHS Class of 1968. Just a simple site, not a lot of glitter, reasonably easy to navigate, a place to share information and make reunion announcements. As a result, visitors will undoubtedly notice that the section for the Class of 1968 has the most information, the most number of unique pages, the most photos, etc. I am willing to work with anyone from other classes to develop their sections in The Tiger Den web site.

While there were many commercial web sites, such as,,, and many others, I felt their scope was too broad to truely capture the community spirit and pride of a small Arizona copper mining town. As I developed the first pages for the Class of 1968, my vision of what The Tiger Den should be took on a new life.

In today's world where it seems everything has to be bigger and faster and more complex than ever before, I yearned for the bygone years where everything was smaller and slower and less complex. Ever since our 30th reunion in October 1998, I had been dallying with a design--and name--for a web site without making a lot of progress. Then came September 11, 2001, a horrible day in American history. Yet it was the impetus I needed to fulfill my personal vision of a Globe High alumni web site.

Before I could fulfill that vision, I needed a few things: A web hosting site; a catchy web site name; and an easily-remembered web address. Of c0ourse, the web site name and web address also had to have some connection with dear old GHS. I easily found a web hosting site, and sent an E-mail to my classmates asking for suggestions on the web address and name. Fellow classmate Robert Cubitto responded with Unfortunately, that one was already taken, so I took the next best name,, and at least took Bob's suggestion of The Tiger Den for the formal web site name.

This is my legacy as a Globe High School alumnus that I chose to share with other alumni. Enjoy.
