1984 - 20th reunion

Our class dinner was held at Peter Glazer’s (therapeutic radiology at Yale) and my (molecular biophysics and biochemistry, Yale) house in Guilford. The weather was cold and rainy for June, so we brought the tables inside and lit a fire in the fireplace. We were joined by David (ENT, New Haven) and Karen Astrachan; Lenny (founder of biotech company, Alexion, in Cheshire, Conn.) and Linda Bell and two of their children; Jan Blustein (health policy, NYU) and Leslie Greengard; Joe Chambers (cardiology) and Barbara Coda (anesthesia), who are living in Oregon; Rich (AstraZeneca in Delaware) and Sara Leff; and Paul Rothman and Frances Meyer and their three children. Paul is at Columbia University but is moving to the University of Iowa this summer to be chair of medicine. John Krystal (psychiatry, Yale) and Bonnie Becker and their twins attended, and Mark Stein (urology in New York) and Andy Sternlicht (antibiotic biotech in Boston) were there. Ken Rosenblum has a new undertaking: machines that dispense prescriptions in doctors’ offices (InstyMeds). Look for them.

On Friday night at the clambake we were joined by Dave Shrier, who is in diagnostic imaging at Rochester, and Josh Schor, who is the medical director of a Jewish nursing home in New Jersey. Michael Caplan, who is in the physiology department at Yale, and Marnin Merrick, who is a radiation oncologist in New York City, also joined us. I was very happy that our son, Sam, kept himself occupied playing football in front of Harkness with David and Karen Astrachan’s two very congenial boys.

Several of our classmates sent their regrets: Aron and Peggy Wahrman had a baby in May, Hope Francesca, and so could not come; Ana and Dan Kolansky had a family matter to attend to; Bruce Haffty (therapeutic radiology, Yale) was giving the radiation oncology boards; and Kim Gutner was taking her children to Europe and so could not attend.

All of us greatly missed our friend and classmate, Sabra Jones, who died in a rock climbing accident since our last reunion.
