Photograph article dated August 6, 1964 reads, "'Larry's room is a horrible mess - radios and equipment all over the place,' Mrs. Alex Shulman of Sherman Oaks said with pride. 'There isn't a radio in our house that Gary hasn't torn apart to see what makes it tick,' echoed Mrs. William Klemens of Northridge, smiling. The two mothers spoke in glowing terms of the things their sons had learned during a summer enrichment program in electronics at Pierce College. The course, offered by the college in conjunction with the Gifted Childrens association of San Fernando Valley, was taught by Albert De Martin and Harry Jones. What made it unusual was that the 20 students were all boys between the ages of eigth [sic] and 12." Photograph caption reads, "A what? Pierce college instructor Albert De Martin and his 'gifted' young summer school students in electronics examine the pattern on an oscilloscope at class session."
