1965 - 40th reunion

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2005 - Autumn


The Class of ’65 had a wonderful 40th reunion in early June. We enjoyed the traditional shore dinner under the tent at Harkness, and a lovely dinner at the Quinnipiack Club on Saturday. Twenty classmates made it back and enjoyed catching up—some have been regulars at reunions, others first-timers. Attendees included Amy and Tom Aoki, John Coyle, Greg Culley, Mike and Susan Cummings, Carl and Emi Ellenberger, Chris Gates, Frank and Donna Grady, Gary Gross and Betsy Shure, Bob and Donna Gryboski, Reed and Ellie Heffner, Dave Hill, Edgar and Ellen Hull, Carl Hunt and Joyce Shoemaker, Ron Karpick, Mohandas and Joanne Kini, Larry and Linda Ossias, Bob and Mary Pickens, and John and Greta Seashore. Five of us have retired and some have switched career paths, but most are still practicing medicine actively. Just can’t keep this group down. There was considerable sentiment for having the occasional mini-reunion more frequently, especially for those of us who live relatively near each other. Perhaps we Northeasterners could gather at Carl Ellenbergers’ Mt. Gretna (Pa.) music festival next summer. If anyone is interested, let me know ( Is anyone on the West Coast up for organizing something out that way? We hope to see even more people next time around.
