Peter Lawrence, BA in Sociology, Minor in Psychology, University of South Carolina. My main interests are in experimental social psychology with an emphasis on prosocial and altruistic behavior. I was a Chef for 20 years, before returning to college, cooking in large 5 star hotels across the country. I intend to pursue my PhD in sociology.

 My brother, Peter, was a gentle soul who loved his memories of WHS.  I still have his choir jacket, which has cherished patches from contests and trips.  Thanks to all who remember and loved him.

So sorry to hear of your brother's passing, Kate.  He was a very sweet boy.  I last saw him in Austin when he was working as a chef for one of the big hotels.  I will say a prayer for him and his family. 

Love, Peggy Jamieson
