1992 Hall of Fame Inductees
Name Category Class
Stephen Bentley Visual/Performing Arts 1972
Octavia Butler Journalism 1965

Octavia E. Butler was the first black woman to come to international prominence as a science fiction writer. Incorporating powerful, spare language and rich, well-developed characters, her work tackled race, gender, religion, poverty, power, politics, and science in a way that touched readers of all backgrounds. Butler was a towering figure in life and in her art and the world noticed; highly acclaimed by reviewers, she received numerous awards, including a MacArthur "genius" grant, both the Hugo and Nebula awards, the Langston Hughes Medal, as well as a PEN Lifetime Achievement award.

Larry Cole Community Service 1965
Dr. Willard Goodwin Science 1933
Willard E. Goodwin, M.D. (1915-1998) was the founder of the UCLA Department of Urology and a pioneer in the treatment of urologic diseases, organ transplantation and pediatric urology. A graduate of UC Berkeley and Johns Hopkins, Goodwin joined UCLA in 1951 and became founder and chief of the division of urology in 1953. He was credited with making 40 major discoveries in urology. The Department conducted its first kidney transplant in 1960 and has since performed more than 5,000 such procedures.
Dr. Goodwin's accomplishments included one of the first successful methods of radionuclear imaging of the kidney, the first use of steroids in transplantation, the first percutaneous nephrostomy, and innovative methods of using bowel to reconstruct the urinary tract in adults and children performed by Dr. Goodwin and another urologist, William Casey, M.D. Together, they demonstrated the safety of percutaneous drainage and developed the study of the upper urinary tract. Their work still stands among the major urologic and radiologic advances of the 20th century and is used in one form or another to this day.
Rod Sherman Sports 1962
Rod Sherman played varsity football in the early 1960s at Muir and was a four-year wide receiver for John McKay at USC. He was All Pac-8 in his senior year (1966) and made his only Rose Bowl appearance on Jan. 1, 1967 against Purdue. Sherman caught what would have been the game-winning touchdown pass but the Trojans failed on a two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter. As a result, the Boilermakers, led by quarterback Bob Griese, won 14-13.

Sherman was selected in the third round of the 1967 AFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. In his rookie year, he became the first Muir alumnus to play in a Super Bowl. He spent the following season with the Cincinnati Bengals before returning to the silver and black for the 1969, ‘70 and ‘71 seasons. He finished his pro football career with the Denver Broncos (1972) and the Los Angeles Rams (1973).

Sherman is currently President and CEO of flashbackcamps.com, a fantasy football camp where “grown-up kids” can compete with university greats of the past at three levels (player/coach/owner). The series of annual two-day camps (one of which is held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum), is conducted like a scouting combine, in which the participants draft a team.
