My son Sam is married to a Japanese woman and teaches English near Nagasaki Japan.

Grandchildren:

Don't expect any of these anytime soon.

Comments:

I graduated from Hawken School and, after a couple of years at Princeton, took a few years off to work on riverboats and see the world. Ended up in Madison, WI and got a PhD in Applied Economics. After a few years as a professor at Penn State I returned to Madison and now run a small consulting firm called Pacific Economics Group Research. I mostly work in Canada. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, mostly to obscure locales in the West.
The biggest tragedies in my life have been the deaths of my wife Elizabeth Lowry (heart attack) and my subsequent life partner Ann Kelley (colon cancer). I was fortunate to be able to parent her two children for a couple of years after Ann died. Despite these setbacks I have great kids and a stimulating career and enjoy my life living on a drumlin overlooking Lake Mendota in Madison. My partner Jean Deuster is a retired doctor and lives in suburban Milwaukee. Regrettably, I rarely return to Cleveland since my parents died years ago. I would come more often if the Browns were better!

School Story:

I have lots of fond memories from my two years at Woodbury. Al Maples, Hugh Lewis, Stewart Peck, and the rest of the guys in Sal Fabrizio's homeroom. Parties with Janet Bolz, Sally Cooper, Laurie Stein, and Shelly Frisch. Grammer class with Mrs. King. High school football games at Shaker. The Albert Ladanyi experience. Hanging in the neighborhood with Bert Debenedetto and Bertie Riley. Had some friends at Hawken that some of you will remember from grade school. Jimmie Marcus and the estimable Howard Halle (RIP).

Classmates You Still See Regularly:

I see Stewart Peck on my occasional visits to New Orleans.

Happy birthday Sally! I still fondly remember a party in your basement. Would it have been in the ninth grade? Hope that you are doing well.

Yes, he was an outstanding teacher who taught his students to think "outside the box" and made us feel that we were special and had some talent.  I believe that I participated in a summer class that he taught at Woodbury.  At some point I wrote a paper on architecture for him.

Condolences to the Rini family, a warm memory from my elementary school days.  Somehow my association with them did not make me a very good bowler!

I had a crush on Billie for several years at Fernway.  I remember her sitting up at the front of Mrs. Stark's class. Or was it Mrs. Emsweiler's?  So cute!!!  

RIP Billie

I am fortunate to live near Lake Mendota. I enjoy walking down the hill (I live on a glacial drumlin) to see the sunsets.
