1958 - 45th reunion
The 45th reunion of the Class of 1958 was an outstanding success with 20 members of the class entering into the festivities. The high point of the weekend came when Andy McGowan and Bob Donohue each received the Distinguished Alumni Service Award. The awards were given during the alumni association business meeting, which was held in the new Anlyan Center for Medical Research and Education, a major addition to the campus on the site of the old nurses’ dormitory at 300 Cedar Street.
Friday afternoon, early arrivals gathered to talk about what they were doing and going to do. Pauline Wood, who had retired from the University of Rhode Island’s Health Services, was honored by having a building named the Dr. Pauline B. Wood Health Services. Her medical school compatriot, Marcia Kraft Goin, has not retired and has been elected president of the American Psychiatric Association.
Otherwise the rest of the weekend was spent feasting. Friday evening the group attended the medical school clambake. Saturday there was a buffet at Harkness after the awards. A small group opted for clam pizza at Pepe’s. Saturday night we dined at the Union League Cafe through the good works of Michael Kashgarian.
The dinner was attended by George K. Aghajanian, John P. Arnot, Gerard N. Burrow, David A. Carlson, John A. Creatura, Robert J. Donohue Jr., Lawrence Dubin, Donald D. Duncan, Marcia Kraft Goin, Stanley Harris, Michael Kashgarian, Theodore W. Lieberman, Andrew J. McGowan Jr., Albert Muggia, Carol F. Phillips, William B. Radcliffe, Paul A. Rudnick, Raymond W. Turner, John Patrick Wood and Pauline B. Wood.
Jay Kislak and Jim Greenwald were scheduled to attend but never appeared. Ted Miller sent his regrets. Suffused with good fellowship and warm feelings for the Class of ’58, the group disbursed, vowing to return in five years.
