Looking for a forum member called Bluegoose

Hi all,

 

I am in need of your help.  I have read various comments on charm schools, and one of the comments contributed by Bluegoose caught my eye.  In her comments, she noted that she attended the Patricia Stevens School of Charm in Oakland back in 1968.  My wife eventually joined the Detmer Agency in SF and participated in a number of shows throughtout the Bay Area.  She even ran for Miss Oakland at one point.  All that said, I would really like to have a chance to talk to this person and find out if she may have known my wife.  My wife graduated from high school in 1968 in Oakland, and there is a very good probablility that this person may have crossed paths with her.  At the least, she might be able to point me in the direction of finding historical info/pics of this particular school.  

 

I ask this only because my wife passed recently in August of 2023, and I am trying to gather pictures for her Celebration of Life.  

 

Thank you all,

 

Mike Rosen

I went to John Robert Powers and Patricia Stevens when I was a young girl. But, not in California.

@49miker. There's  no poster registered with the name Bluegoose.  The is a bluegoose but the person is not currently active and has no activity.

 

The spelling must be exact.

I'm so sorry about your wife. I'm sure you miss her very much.

 

I'm not sure how you can find this person, but I went back in the posts and think I found the post you were talking about. It was actually by a poster named "egoose" (instead of "Bluegoose") and was from 2015. It said:

 

"Hi, my year was 1968, Patricia Stevens, Modeling School, Oakland California, had to drive 40 minutes to get there, at 7pm at night, a little scary, but I got there and did become a runway model, for a few years. Did learn a lot of self confidence, I just wanted to be Twiggy.Great experience for a 17 year old, if I remember correctly it cost me $600. ELISE P."

Good luck to you in your search!

@49miker - I echo what @haddon9 said. And if you look at the end of the post, she put her name "Elise P."

May your wife's memory be with you always.

 

Perhaps Bluegoose was on a different forum?  Best of luck.
