Thunderbird Magazine, 1995 Special Issue
Thunderbird Magazine celebrated the school’s 50thanniversary with a special edition in 1995. “Like the Phoenix bird that rose from its own ashes, Thunderbird rose triumphantly from the aftermath of World War II,” the cover story begins. The issue features the recollections of Jack Rokahr ’47, one of the first students to arrive at the American Institute of Foreign Trade, and Diego Veitia ’66, who got scolded by administrators after he and a classmate started a wildly popular nightclub for Phoenix college students.
