  1. My name is John H Bohn. In 1969, I was recruited by Paul Simms to help transform Tech News into a newspaper that addressed issues of importance to the Black and Latino students at CCNY. I am not sure why Paul asked me to be a part of this endeavor; I was white, and I had no background in journalism. Whatever the reason, it was then and remains today one of the high points in my life, I am now 65 years old,, married 45 years with sons and grandchildren, but when I looked through the pictures and early issues of The Paper,, Paul, Luis Rivera, Joudon Ford, Arlette Hecht, Francine Covington, Tom MacDonald, and all the other folks from those early days came back to me, all of them young, resilient and full of idealism. Your ongoing success makes this old man very happy..
