Robin was born in Washington DC, at Garfield Hospital, to Eleanor and Harry MacArthur, the first child of the couple. Soon after, they moved to Kew Gardens NY, while her father was a navigator during WWII. He couldn’t pass the Army physical, so he joined the Civilian Air Patrol, and flew over the Himalayas' (called 'flying the hump') delivering supplies to China. After the war, they returned to the DC area, to Porter St, where the kids could walk to the end of the block and look down into the elephant enclosure of the National Zoo. Another move to a home on Lanier St, until in 1952 the family settled on Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, MD, where Robin grew up with her younger brothers. Robin graduated from Northwood High School in Silver Spring, MD in 1961. Their childhood was marked with the normal adventures of siblings which she was able to recount in this last week as family gathered to see her./strong>
Dear Northwood Classmates, while going through some old VHS tapes, I came across several hours of video from the 30th reunion in 1990. Please remember, these tapes are almost 30 years old and needed to be converted first to DVD, then to a format that the computer could read, before uploading them to YouTube, so please excuse the poor quality. The camera was usually sitting on a tripod therefore only those in front of the camera are on the tape. Not everyone at that reunion is visible and it is not the almost three hours of video recorded but there is about two hours now uploaded. Click here to view. Carol Cremonese also contributed to these videos with their camera.
