Three students of Saint Mary's College/Pre-flight school playing soccer. A caption pasted to the back reads "An outstanding athlete as well as a good student, "Bill" Ford stars at soccer, tennis and track. Here (right), he takes the ball after a pass from Lawrence Beecher (left), during a soccer game on the Moraga campus. Edwin Classon is the defending man with his back to the camera. Except in games, Ford keeps in the background."

William [Bill] Clay Ford is the grandson of Henry Ford- as in the automobile.Saint Mary's Pre-Flight School was a part of the Saint Mary's College of California campus in Moraga, Ca. St. Mary's College began in S.F., made its way to Oakland, and then finaly settled on the old base in Moraga. The pre-flight school is no longer a part of the college.
