Edward C. 'Ed' Cobb - Class Of 1956 VIEW PROFILE

Edward C. 'Ed' Cobb

Although most biographical information states that Ed graduated from Hollywood High in 1955 with his band mates (The Four Preps), the fact is he was a 1956 graduate from South Pasadena High School. Back then it was better to have all the boys promoted as being from Hollywood (Hollywood High). Why would they say "Oh, and one of us is from South Pasadena"?


Here is a photo of the group at that time. Ed is the tall one!

"Twenty Six Miles Across The Sea." That was the song that made the Four Preps famous. Our own Ed Cobb, 56 was one of the four. An outstanding guy; tall, blond and a keen interest in people, played football. Religious and a caring person.
He wrote music, did voice over narrations and ads. Loved horses and the open spaces of western Wyoming. He was an all-around great person to grow up with.
