Pete, Henry (1941, 1952)
Henry Pete was born on a farm in Glendale, Oregon in 1920. Skipping two grades, he graduated High School at 16, and then attended Albany College (later Lewis & Clark) on a half tuition athletic scholarship. While at Albany College he majored in history and government and participated in a variety of sports and athletic activities, especially baseball and basketball. He also witnessed the transfer of Albany College from its campus in Albany, Oregon, to its temporary downtown Portland campus, and attended classes in both locations. Mr. Pete graduated in 1941, and soon after joined the army at the outbreak of the war. Upon his return home, he enrolled in the newly renamed, and again moved, Lewis & Clark College, and received a Masters of Education in 1951. He worked in the educational field for the rest of his life. He started first as a coach, and later was school superintendent in Philomath, Oregon. Finally, Mr. Pete was President of Rogue Community College.
