  1. I am very excited to hear of a reunion for the 1960-61 Vienna year. Of course stashed boxes of memorabilia will produce Wienerish stuff to share if I can remember where they are. And, an actual get-together of classmates who we won’t recognize — well, how can you beat that? I’m in!!

  2. Christmas mail usually involves hearing from folks one hasn’t seen for a year or two but your missive on a ’61 Class Reunion really takes the cake.

    With many of us crossing the decade mark reserved only for fossils and candidates for nursing homes, I was shocked one would care about any of us, let alone be able to resurrect information for a mailing list.

    Having given my preamble, I was delighted to know of such an event because this 7 month sojourn was one of the most impactful events of my life and I know the same can be said for many of my friends. We were among those who spent the second semester in Wien and I recall the bitter winter weather which greeted us in NY for the welcome gathering. My friend Frank Ziegler( missing from the alphabetical list you’ll note) were roomies in college and remained so in Wien but we often remark about the daily trek to the dining hall in Wien where we passed the open fish market and the local “ladies of the evening” hawking their wares right next door. Yes, each of us has many stories but overall, I was so impressed with the entire trip that my wife and I encouraged our own 2 daughters to study abroad in college and they grew immeasurably because of their experience, as did we.

    Well, there is much wood to chop between now and October.

  3. I would be interested in the folks in the Spring ’61 program. Just being updated on them and what their lives entailed.

    Where now : My wife, Marianne, and I live in San Diego where we were both born and raised.We live in happy retirement in an old S.D. neighborhood. We ended our careers with the County of San Diego and travel extensively in the U.S. and abroad. We have a small trailer and travel and camp in it as well. Our two grandkids live in Durham, NC, and we visit twice a year. Our health is good and we exercise, do yoga, read a lot and do volunteer work in our community.
