Kellogg, Michael (Mike)

Freshman Dorm: O'Connor

Michael Kellogg ’64 writes: After retiring from the NFL (Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos), I went to law school and became a criminal defense attorney. Eventually, Gov. Pete Wilson appointed me to the bench. I have been sitting as a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge going on 19 years. I married a much younger woman so must work until age 120. We are expecting our first, which actually will be our second and third, if you get my drift--triplets! At my age I am having trouble remembering names so we have decided to make it real simple, A, B and C.
