Julie Moore-Selberg

Julie was the second wife of Charles Selberg. They met in Fargo, ND, where Charlie had opened his first fencing salle. Julie was a National finalist in 1964 and was part of the Olympic Trials that took place at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York.

Julie kept voluminous scrapbooks of pets, mostly dogs and cats, that she and Charlie kept at their property near Ashland, Oregon after Charlie retired from UCSC. Fortunately, she also kept some fencing scrapbooks that document both the 1963 and 1964 US Nationals.
