1970 - 35th reunion

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2005 - Autumn


Our class reunion dinner was held in the library of the Quinnipiack Club on Saturday evening and attended by 15 members as well as their spouses and guests. Following numerous photo shoots to accommodate late-arriving members, we enjoyed an excellent dinner and had a nice time catching up on the personal and professional lives of what was truly an eclectic class. The attendees included Elissa and Dan Arons, John Blanton and Beth Balschi, Paul and Judy Braun, Romney and Mary Sue Burke, Anne Curtis, Jonathan and Rosanne Ecker, Rick and Ruth Edelson, Harvey Fernbach and Ann Birk, Tom Gouge, Paul and Patricia Hessler, Gerry Kennealey, Mark and Susan Korsten, Bob and Joan Rosa, Joellen Werne, and Karl and Diane Wustrack, as well as special guest Rose Papac. Rose, one of the outstanding educators and clinicians from the classical era of Yale medical school, announced that she will be retiring this July and plans to concentrate her efforts on writing, including a book. All of her many grateful students wish her well. I will be sending out a composite of e-mails I have received that provides specific information about many members of our class. If you do not receive this communication and wish to obtain it, please contact me (
