"How would I find the phone number and address from my childhood residence in Washougal (1942-1960)? An old phone book would be helpful from that period. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hope all is well with you and your family. Say hi to Meralee for us and hope to see you and your auto at next summer's Cruise-In, after having been disappointed with the rain concellation this past summer.
Thanks Gerald for the comments.... and it would be great if you could invite others to join. Oldtimers for the most part tend to be a little intimidated about doing very much with a computer, so although there doesn't appear to be much activity here among the members, I am able to track numbers and as of a few minutes ago, the site had passed 4200 page visits in the last month.....so although there isn't much interaction here yet, there are a good number of viewing visitors.
An easy way to invite others to the site, if you haven't already discovered it, is to go to your "My Page" up top and click on Invite Friends.
Gary Shaw, Washougal Class of 1959 is in the process of authoring a set of 6 books, titled The Eric English Chronicles, set in and around the Camas-Washougal area from the early 1960's through the present. I have attached a file that he sent me prefacing information about the books as well as introducing and relating a little about the main characters.... Also included is an outline of the happenings in the 19th Chapter of Book 1 intended for the publishers. It is not the chapter itself. Here now is the author. Click on the orange to open.

Dick Schaefer (WHS '55) has written a new book that he has published on Amazon. Its' title is The Final Conflict, and a download to your Kindle is available for $4.99. If you do not have a Kindle, a free Kindle application is available for downloading to your PC that will allow you read the book on it. Simply click on this link to get to Dick's book: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AJB3SD6
Here is a brief synopsis of the book.
A small town man is thrust into 11 days of conflict over Christmas of 1972, against the best air defense structure ever faced by strategic bombers to achieve President Nixon’s "Peace with Honor" exit strategy against North Viet Nam.
This is the Viet Nam "12 O’Clock High" told from the standpoint of the crew force flying the mission: telling the TRUE story----not the written history documented in the archives of the Strategic Air Command.
Dick informs me that his earlier book Mill Town is still available by mail for $15 including shipping from his address. Scroll down to the bottom of this main page for more information.
The following has nothing whatsoever to do with Washougal senior alumni or nostalgia. It is a small widget that connects every 10 seconds with a random webcam across the world. Some will work, some will not, but when they do, they work well, delivering real time moving images of sights around the world.
Simply click on the lettering name just below the image (not on the image itself as that will open an ad) and the webcam will open in a new larger window. It may take as much as a half minute to begin but when and if it does, it can be very rewarding....it does require a Java application which, if you don't have already, will be offered as a download right then and there.....it also works better with the Firefox browser than it does with Internet Explorer.
