A man of many talents, Nick Binkley ’64 is founding partner in the investment firm of Forrest Binkley & Brown. Previously he was Vice Chairman of Security Pacific Corporation, then following the merger of BankAmerica and Security Pacific, he became Vice Chairman and a member of the Board of Directors of Bank America.
Binkley is also a musician who served in the Peace Corps in Tunisia. He’s been playing the guitar in bands since his days at Webb and recorded two CDs, Let the Boy Jam and Pin Stripe Brain. Currently he is producing two films: Odetta, about the civil rights folk singer and activist, which will appear on PBS' American Masters program in 2010 and The Soft Power of Hard Rock-Behind the Iron Curtain. The latter chronicles the story of how Western rock music and pop culture helped bring down Soviet communism by infecting youth behind the Iron Curtain. It has been in production for four years and been endorsed by both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
Join the conversation. The Spring/Summer issue of WEBB Magazine is in the mail and on its way to you. In it we explore Webb’s new innovative curriculum—an educational experience being talked about across the country. From the newly invigorated core curriculum that includes The American Idea and Evolutionary Biology, to the ONLY AT WEBB series of Honors and Advanced Studies courses featuring Advanced Studies in Biotechnology and Honors Ethics & Modern Global Affairs—the Webb program is engaging students in field study and independent research work like never before.
The Webb Schools is pleased to offer a live stream for both the Vivian Webb School and Webb School of California Commencement Ceremonies on June 2, 2018. The events are available below, and will be concurrently streaming on Webb's Facebook page as well as the schools' Livestream.com page.
