My father is seated in the second row from the back, second from the left (with the light glinting off his glasses). The only other person I know in the photo is Gene Haas, standing in the back row, fourth from the left.
My father's name appears twice. First under "No. 2 Best Speech" and again in "No. 3 Achievement." I know no details.
I still have the book he used for the course. It's title is, of course, How to Win Friends and Influence People.
Dad finished this course in December, 1966, the same month and year he received a certificate in Management Development. It's likely the Carnegie course was part of the management development course.
His certificate reads
Dale Carnegie Courses
This certifies that
has successfully completed the
Dale Carnegie Course
in Effective Speaking
and Human Relations
In Witness Whereof this certificate
is issued under our hands and seal
this 7th day of December, 1966

It's fun to see a photo of Dad in a classroom setting with the other students, however, my father was a lifelong learner (as we say these days) whether at work or taking courses at the mill, and more often at home while making repairs around the house, learning the new skills of woodworking and clock building, or reading the newspaper.
