Ross Barbour (1928–2011)

From the Los Angeles Times:

Ross Barbour, the last surviving original member of the Four Freshmen, the influential close-harmony vocal quartet that came to fame in the 1950s with hits such as “Graduation Day,” has died. He was 82.
Still up at YouTube: a great introduction to the Four Freshmen, in the form of a 1964 special for Japanese television: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. In the first clip, from left ro right: Ross Barbour, Bob Flanigan, Ken Albers, Bill Comstock.
