We are pleased to announce that the IES Vienna Class of 1960-61 is going to have another reunion in Vienna, Thursday-Sunday, October 24-27, 2013!
Our gathering will start with a concert/reception at the IES Center like the marvelous one we had for our 50th Reunion in October 2011. George Trask, our classmate who has taken the lead to organize our reunions, is going to Vienna in about six weeks to make the preliminary arrangements for October 2013.
Jennifer Jerzyk in the alumni office at IES headquarters in Chicago is busy updating the address list for all our classmates. She has recently discovered a number of addresses for people who were “lost”, some of whom have already told us they are coming to the October 2013 reunion.
We ask everyone in the Class of 1960-61 to please get in touch with us as soon as possible by clicking here to tell us the names and addresses (email and postal) of classmates from our Vienna days with whom you are still in contact. In this way we should be able to bring our address list up to date as much as possible and encourage everyone to come to the reunion.
Please also let us know by clicking here that you have made the preliminary decision to attend the reunion. You don’t have to make a final commitment now, but we would like to have some indication of the level of interest as we go forward with the planning.
Stay tuned for more information on our upcoming reunion as we complete the plans for Thursday-Sunday, October 24-27, 2013, in Vienna. See you there!

I had received no notice regarding the IES Reunion in Vienna in the year 2011 and hoped that it was literally a “ball”. I do recognize a few of the names on the list of 214 student from that year of 1960/61 but have not seen anyone from our cohort in over 50 years. Unfortunately, there is no information on Anita Mueller whom I dated in Vienna during my Viennese period. I did complete my education at Trinity College in Hartford, CT, obtained my medical degree from the University of Heidelberg and completed a residency in Anesthesiolgy at Yale-New Haven Hospital. After that I married a nurse from Boston and susequently Susan and I have 3 children plus grandchildren in the U.S. and Germany.
I do plan to visit my 2 granddaughters in Berlin this year and might be able to join IES group in Vienna during the same trip.
Please keep me informed, Evan Tilley
Like the Danube, time flows on and carries us to many interesting people and places. Until Patricia Serenbetz forwarded your reunion email I had lost contact with our mutual colleagues from IES Vienna. And yet the connection with Vienna has remained, though it transformed. I married a naturalized American Viennese-born immigrant. In 1996 we exhibited his ceramics and my photographs in a Viennese museum. How could those connections to Vienna have grown, yet the contacts from my student year there be lost to the distant past? Though I really do not recall most names on the list, I found my own and brought contact information up to date.
How well I recall (from 1960) Austria’s golden beauty in the Fall, even though the times my late husband and I returned were usually in the red poppy-filled Spring. It would be interesting to hear more about the planned Vienna reunion, so I look forward to what ever information you may have available to forward!

Thanks for the update. I plan to attend.
I am unsure if I can attend in October, but will let you know, hopefully before the deadline.
Looking forward to seeing you this fall. Our reunion in 2011 was a peak experience for me. Thanks also for the tips on Berlin hotels and the QM2.
Sorry to say I will be unable to attend as a niece is getting married that weekend in NYC it appears.
I hope all is well and that the reunion is a success.
