1964 - 40th reunion
Our 40th gala at New Haven’s Polo Grille had spirit and reasonable number as 15 classmates and nine spouses returned to Yale.
Bob and Becky Mitchell traveled from northern California, where he still practices cardiovascular surgery. Lew (dean at Northwestern) and Jill Landsberg flew in from Chicago en route to Nice, France. Skip and Joyce Stilp from Wisconsin appeared to be more than enjoying retirement. Other Wisconsonites included Bill and Mary Alice (M.D. ’66) Houghton. Their daughter, Shelagh, was Class of ’98. Stan and Maxine Rosenberg came down from Boston and provided free antacids. Steve and Gillian Waltman from St. Louis punctuated the evening with subtle one-liners and critical ecopolitical wisdom. Tom and Claire Cardella added a nice Washington, D.C., touch. Remo and Christiane Fabbri, psychiatrist extraordinaire and lay minister, were the only locals.
Class treasurer Bob and Wendy Lyons had flowchart and charge card machine in hand. Mary Digangi and Diane Shrier, while not discussing mental health issues, debated the virtues of comfortable fashions and long-stemmed footwear.
Tony Bravo looked the picture of health and wealth and will someday be the fourth great tenor. Bob Briggs had brief lapses of memory and reaffirmed that fantasies have no boundaries.
Tom Lentz, presently associate dean of admissions, concluded that we were most fortunate to have applied to Yale Medical School in 1960 and not later.
