1968 - 40th Reunion

     
   

Seventeen members of the Class of 1968 came to New Haven for our 40th reunion. Elizabeth Short provided the star attraction with the 2008 edition of the Class Roster, a 139-page summary of the class that will be mailed to all who did not attend. Grace Jordison Boxer came with husband Larry from Michigan. Bob Dillard, who came with wife Laura, reminded us of his passions for treating sick babies and for fly fishing. Alan Finesilver, who came with wife Cindy, is also an avid fly fisherman (Wisconsin and Montana) and works as a volunteer to help find housing for homeless people. Bill Flynn Jr. is still working as a general surgeon with no intention of retiring any time soon. Gil Grand revels in his “perpetual immaturity.” Len Grauer, who came with wife Betsy, was “delighted to see everyone.” Ralph Greco came with wife Irene Wapnir. Peter Jokl was excused from the fête due to aortic valve surgery a few weeks earlier. Marc Lippman was happy “just to be here.”Frank Lucente, who came with partner Stephen Saikin, tells us he is now enjoying “minimal work.” Allen McCutchan and wife Emily are anticipating semiretirement soon. Richard Morehead invites us all to Santa Fe, N.M., for next year’s West Coast reunion—a necessary location due to global warming (i.e., no more West Coast). Jim Ogilvie is happy to “see a happy and productive Class of ’68. We’re not done yet!” Jerry Rauch and wife Nancy have been traveling internationally, rebuilding their house and volunteering at an animal shelter. Peter Kirkpatrick says this event brings back good memories. And Chuck Post has been semiretired for 8 years, sailing along the East Coast and the Caribbean, doing surgery in the Third World and bicycling in various countries.
