Barbeau, Clayton

Clayton Barbeau ’59 writes that he is in private practice in San Jose as a psychotherapist, marriage and family counselor. His DVDs on "Coping" and "Surviving" are used worldwide in psychology classes and hospitals and recovery programs. The book he began writing while still at Santa Clara, The Father of the Family, won the Spiritual Life Award in 1961 and has never been out of print. It was translated into Italian for use by the bishops during Vatican II. He was rated as one of the "top speakers" in the world when he chose to cease his travels and devote his attention to his practice and two new books he is writing.

Barbeau, Clayton

In 1959, prior to graduation, Clayton Barbeau ’59 was asked by the then Chairman of the Engish Dept, to please give a communion breakfast talk to the Dad's Club of St. Joseph's Church. Clay decided he had never heard of anyone talking to a Dad's Club about fatherhood. Living in the tin buildings of married student's housing and the father of three...he accepted the task. He wrote the talk, but paid little attention to the notes...and received not only a standing ovation, but the men lined up to individually shake hands and thank him. It was then that one of the Dads spotted the notes on the lectern...and asked if he could mimeograph the talk for "our wives and the men who haven't been here." Clay agreed and a week later was presented with fifty copies of his speech. On behalf of the Alumni Journal, Dr.Wade asked if they could print it. Clay gave permission, and meanwhile various priests asked for multiple copies for the persons they were counseling. It was then that Clay wrote to Naomi Burton, Thomas Merton's agent, who had asked him to write a novel. He asked if she could help his family income by getting the speech into a magazine. A few days later, he got her reply: "Too highbrow for the family magazines, too down to earth for the intellectual magazines, stick to fiction." Two days later, she phoned him to say the John Bettin, editor at Henry Regnery was in her office and she had shown him the manuscript, He wanted to know if Clay would turn it into a book. The "Father of the Family" took seven days to write. The publisher got worried because of it talked of sex and marriage in ways more unusual than anything before. After the third putting off the publication date, Clay gave an ultimatum and the book was published. The book received rave reviews ...and was given the "Spiritual Life Award" for best book on the spiritual life in the year. It was then, at the request of Cardinal Tisserant, translated into Italian for the Council Fathers dealing with family issues. The Italian translation came out with quotations from the documents of Vatican II preceding each Chapter... quotations based upon the chapters. All editions since then have had those quotes... And the book has never been out of print, but Sophia Press this year decided to revamp the cover and it has now entered its 54th year of life and to Clay's surprise, the interviewers treat it as though it is a new work.

He and wife Patricia Schott also funded the Patricia A. and Stephen C. Schott Admission and Enrollment Services Building, which began welcoming visitors to the Mission Campus in 2012. Schott is a founding partner of Citation Homes in Santa Clara.

Oliva, Max

Max Oliva, S.J. ’61 was recently featured in the Las Vegas Review-Journal for the success of his "attention-getting" ministry, Ethics in the Marketplace. Through short talks to business groups, full-length seminars, or individual sessions, Fr. Oliva works with businesspeople—Catholics or non-Catholics—to try to sort through quandaries they encounter in the office: How should a businessperson deal with a larcenous partner, lay off people to satisfy cash flow necessities yet not crush the spirit of the former employees, or handle a contract dispute with a client?

"My experience is there's not a lot of people you can talk to about this stuff," Oliva said. "You don't want to talk to your boss. You can't talk to a pastor because he is overwhelmed with other things. You don't want to take it home and make it a big problem." That's when Oliva comes in.
