1938 - 65th reunion

     
   

Ben and Blanche Lyons moved this year to a new and very active retirement community in West Redding, Conn., just 10 miles from Westport and Norwalk, where he had his ophthalmology practice. We had to forgo attending the 65th reunion activities because Blanche fell and injured her pelvis just before the scheduled meeting. She is recovering at home after spending some time in the hospital. Lester Wallman, married to Elizabeth, has spent more than 50 years on the faculty of the University of Vermont Medical School as a professor of neurological surgery and remains active as an emeritus professor. The Wallmans found it difficult to attend the Yale reunion because of his close relationships at Vermont and was attending some of the festivities of the reunion there. He has three children, a son, also a physician, and two daughters. John McGillicuddy is in an assisted-living facility in Framingham, Mass., and for the past 10 years has had extensive neurological problems, including severe loss of sensation in both legs. Ed Roberge of Stratford, Conn., also suffers from extensive neurological problems. Jim Radcliff, who is almost blind, lives in Fairhaven, Mass., with his wife, Betty. With all of us in our 90s, it is difficult to attend.

—Ben Lyons
