Production of this book was made possible through the efforts of Alexandra Muchura, Nicole Jamieson, Louise Moran, Jeuley Ortengren, Patricia Cousins, and Elizabeth Messina. Photographs appearing in this book were sent in by those responding to the class survey. Other photos are from the Chaffee Epilogue, the Loomiscellany, and the Loomis Chaffee Archives.


Fifty years of our lives — wow! How did they go by so quickly?! We spent our Chaffee years in bobby socks, saddle shoes, and skirts, chafing against the restrictions on clothes and behavior that were placed on us. We graduated in our white dresses and bouquets and innocence — out into a world that has changed so much it’s hardly recognizable. Our tie shoes now are apt to be running shoes (or, at the very least, sneakers) and our Secretary of State is never seen in a skirt, while most of us spend our lives in blue jeans. Our communities have become bigger, the circles widening to include first boys, then African Americans, and now people from all over the world. Our news in 1961 was just starting to come from the TV as well as newspapers; now we’re bombarded with information on our smart phones. Our class chose many different paths through the past 50 years. We are single, married, divorced, widowed. Some of us had children; some of us had careers. In “retirement,” we are authors, gardeners, golfers, and volunteers. Some of us had lives totally different from the expected and some of us never even left our home towns. But all of us graduated with a Chaffee education that stuck with us, even as we separated and flew apart. We may have gone deeper into specific fields after high school — history of art, psychology, mathematics, political science, economics, biology, social work — but the basic approach to the problems of life had already been instilled. When we watch the little girls in Afghanistan today risking so much to learn how to read and write, how to think carefully and critically, how to build bonds with each other, we are profoundly grateful for all that Chaffee offered us. Now we have a moment to gather together and reminisce, to laugh and tell stories, to share with each other the last 50 years of our lives as we move on into the next stage. Who knew, when we were so anxious to be able to call Senior Room our own, that someday we would all be senior citizens?! Who knew, when we were so anxious to be rid of saddle shoes, that someday we would be wearing orthotics?! Who knew, when we were so anxious to get out into a wider world, that we would be called upon to live in a world continually realigning itself?! Here are some of the stories of our lives. We hope you enjoy them, and have a wonderful time at our Reunion!

party and gave a wonderfully amusing musical toast at our rehearsal dinner. One year later, Allan retired after a 35-year career with Exxon International. Togetherness is the “name of the game” since then. From 1997 to 2000, we traveled frequently to Pennsylvania to care for Allan’s father who passed away at age 95. In 2006, we purchased an oceanfront, fourth-floor, two-bedroom condo at the Jersey shore in Long Branch. It is a short 60 miles from our home, so we are able to enjoy the pool, beach, boardwalk, and other amenities except during the coldest winter months. Having decided to remain in New Jersey for our retirement years, in 2008 we moved a short distance from Madison to Morris Township, into a spacious townhouse with the master bedroom on the first floor, two upstairs bedrooms, and a loft. Both homes have space for visitors. Reunion and birthdays seem to come up with increasing frequency. In 2007 we attended Allan’s 45th Reunion at Darden Graduate School of Business, University of Virginia, and then his 50th Reunion in 2010 at Lafayette College. For Barbara’s 65th birthday in January 2008, Allan arranged a surprise party with entertainment and dinner at a local French restaurant. Later in November we marked his 70th with a four-night stay in Atlantic City. We are looking forward to my 50th Loomis Chaffee Reunion in 2011. Favorite memory from my Chaffee years: 1) Being the first in my class with a driver’s license, carpooling from West Hartford; 2) French class, which led to my 30-year career with French companies; 3) Great faculty and, wonderful classmates; 4) Field hockey and other sports teams One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Profit from your excellent education at Loomis Chaffee, and stay close to your classmates.

Education: three-year student Occupation: sales and marketing consultant Family: spouse, Serge Mosovich Personal interests and hobbies: I enjoy hiking and walking on trails near our country home in Millerton, New York. I am not quite a gym rat, but I do go regularly and actually lift weights. I love to walk in Manhattan anywhere! Film enthusiast; fashionista who loves shopping for designer bargains; love New York City — could not imagine living anywhere else, except maybe Paris, and some place warm for winters. What I’ve done and where I’ve been: Successful career in advertising. I own a firm representing directors of television commercials and music videos. Also, in earlier years I was a production assistant, stylist, location scout for various television commercial production companies before moving into sales. In 2005, I reinvented myself and went to work as director of development and then executive director of the SoHo/TriBeCa Partnership, a nonprofit helping homeless men and women performing community services. I took my sales skills and moved them into the fundraising arena. I met a lot of very social and wealthy New Yorkers. It was a lot of fun! Also, became active in SoHo community affairs and politics. Have traveled to Europe, Africa and spent many vacations in Argentina. My husband was raised in Buenos Aires, and we travel there frequently to visit with family and friends. Sadly, my language skills are not great. Get French mixed up with Spanish, thanks to years of French lessons at Chaffee. Favorite memory from my Chaffee years: Honestly I am flooded with images and snippets of memory of so many things … and I cannot create a hierarchy or pull one in particular to the fore. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: As Sandra Day O’Connor said, “Long fuse, short memory …” 

Since retirement, we have done more traveling and moved to another house (one with a master bedroom on the first floor). Along the way, we acquired more cats. Both our girls live locally in Maryland, but one son lives in Madison, Wisconsin, and the other one lives in San Francisco.

I finally realized that the fantasy was not to be. After a series of adventures, I landed at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City. I was there for a gala re-opening at the beginning of the 1990s and it was a challenging, glamorous place to be. I am now living in in Southampton, New York, and loving every minute of it. I always say I am living in paradise. My guiding principle is to live as healthily as possible — physically with diet and exercise; and spiritually and emotionally with generosity and open heartedness; and to be aware of, and let go of, any old stuff. I very much look forward to seeing all my classmates at the reunion.

In 2004, I shifted career paths completely and trained to become a certified professional co-active coach (CPCC) through the internationally recognized Coaches Training Institute (CTI). In addition, I challenged my own boundaries and limiting beliefs and completed the CTI Leadership Training Program, an intensive 20-day experiential program of self-discovery and transformation. I also completed CTI’s Leadership Mastery course. In 2006, I launched Carolyn Sanzone, Inc. The company offers leadership development programs and consultant support to organizations and individuals. The focus of consulting work is on developing leaders and enhancing the impact of positive leadership in nonprofits and universities. Over the past several years, I have developed and presented a number of highly interactive programs focused on professional development areas such as managing overwhelm and burnout, overcoming limiting beliefs and maximizing leadership, to name a few. In addition, I have done work with nonprofit boards and worked with organizations to identify and develop emerging leaders. And I co-designed an intensive self-discovery workshop for women entitled “Finding Your Authentic Voice.” I have coached over 75 clients and have been awarded the International Coach Federation’s PCC certification credential as a professional coach. Favorite memory from my Chaffee years: I have many memories related to my residence at Loomis (I was a faculty brat). Favorite memories involve music, notably singing with the Madrigals and the annual multi-school spring choral festival, and singing Czech folk songs in Latin class with Ruth. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Follow your passion, dare to dream, act from choice, and claim your destiny. Your path will unfold in many wonderful ways throughout your life.

When we left Loomis in June 1961, we were about as well prepared as any young men could be to get on with their lives and make their mark in the world. No matter how we felt about the boarding (or day) school experience,

there’s no doubt that we graduated with a quality education, emerging social skills, ambition, curiosity, and hope. We would need all of that to meet the challenges before us. The “Sixties” were shaping up to be one of the most extraordinary and complex decades of the 20th century: JFK, MLK, Vietnam, Apollo, Woodstock, the Beatles. It was a time of stupendous achievements, colossal miscalculations, social upheaval, cultural changes, and occasional peace and harmony.

While history was being made, our lives were taking shape, too. College, graduate school, military and humanitarian service, marriage, family, career — personal and professional lives unfolding, punctuated with challenges and triumphs, setbacks and joy. Every one of our stories is unique and fascinating. Looking back, it would appear that our class was pretty exceptional, and it was: brainy scholars, natural leaders, gifted athletes, talented musicians and singers, eloquent debaters, credible actors, hunks, runaways, comics, and cutups. In reality, our class probably wasn’t much different from others before or after ours, but it’s hard to imagine any bunch of kids with more personality and potential. The following pages tell the story of our Loomis Class of 1961: who we are and how we got to where we are today. Our thanks go out to all of you who have generously shared your memories of Loomis and the 50 years that have elapsed since that time on the Island (sounds like punishment, but it really wasn’t, was it?) And thanks, especially, to Loomis Chaffee for publishing this keepsake Class Book for our 50th Reunion. We hope you will enjoy the memories and journey into the present with roommates, teammates, accomplices, and friends. Welcome back to our glorious school for this monumental event, our 50th and possibly last major class reunion. This is a time to reconnect, catch up, and celebrate the friendships that have endured. Surely the memories will include recollections of the beloved teachers who taught us so much and inspired us to achieve and belong. And most certainly, we’ll remember and honor our comrades no longer with us who will be missing from the Alumni Parade on Saturday. Dave Ashworth 

an attack squadron and retiring as captain in 1990. After 27 years as a Delta Airlines pilot, I retired in 2003 with over 23,000 flight hours. I have lived in Park City, Utah, for 28 years and have enjoyed the winter sports, beautiful summers, and working for several charities, my church, and the Park City Mountain Resort. Retirement has been a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends, volunteer, serve the community, and try to make life better for others. My door is always open to friends from Loomis (Chaffee), powder hounds, and bikers with class on BMW motorcycles (OK, Harleys welcome too!). Favorite memory from my Loomis years: study breaks at the SNUG, Wolcott football with coach Al Beebe, weekends at Brad Sauer’s home, late night excursions drinking beer (won’t say where) with a favorite teacher (won’t say who) One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: The best things in life aren’t things. They’re your friends. Stay in touch with the friends you make at Loomis Chaffee. They will be among the best you will ever have.

basketball referee for NYC high school girls What I’ve done and where I’ve been: Following college and business school, I worked for EF Hutton (!) before starting Avatar in 1970 out of my bedroom. After numerous trials and tribulations, including nearly going out of business, the company gained traction and steadily gained assets under management, peaking in 1995 with $4.5 billion and 60 employees. I sold the company to employees in 2003. I have been happily retired since. We’ll run out of time before we run out of places to see! Favorite memory from my Loomis years: Setting off fireworks, which we had purchased in South Carolina returning from Fort Lauderdale during spring break senior year, in the middle of the quad at 2 a.m. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Life is long, with plenty of time to make up for mistakes or to change direction. Keep trucking. It is how you finish.

Occupation: self-employed voice teacher Family: spouse, Mahala; children: Kathryn, Robert, Jennifer, Andrew, and David; grandchildren: Matthew (14), Abby (10), Hannah (10), Mia (10), Ellie (8), Zachary (8), and Olivia (6) Personal interests and hobbies: biking, cross-country skiing, music and opera, travel What I’ve done and where I’ve been: My primary occupation for the last 


30 years has involved activities encompassing my opera-education program in Boston, Opera con Brio. Briefly this has included the teaching of some 75 different courses and the leading of numerous opera tours all over the world. (See www.operaconbrio.com) Favorite memory from my Loomis years: Happily, I must admit to many fine memories from my Loomis years. One is a very special and personal one: My senior–year roommate (Steve Karp) and I would periodically slip off to the Studio where I, with my “fake book” of piano melodies would accompany Steve in a recital of songs (rather like singing in the shower - I suppose). It was great fun and a wonderful break from the prep–school rigor and routine. Afterwards, we might sneak off to the SNUG for an unauthorized late–night snack. (Additional non-printable vignettes I’ll save for the reunion.) One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: My own favorite quote, as a teacher, comes from a line in Chaucer: “And gladly would I learn and gladly teach.” While the line focuses on teaching per se, it has a universal application: We never cease to learn, and then to share what we learn. My advice would be to do just that.

Symphony. I have also successfully raised two boys. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: a very supportive academic environment with competitive varsity football, wrestling, and tennis One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: “Come back after recession is over and do it all again.” Expect recognition of your performance (work, personality, principles, general interests), not your pedigree. Consider volunteering for public service and/or military service to round out your education, especially if jobs are scarce.

Then I returned to school for an M.A. in English and went overseas to live and work. After 12 years in Indonesia, Kuwait, Poland, and the United Arab Emirates, I returned to the U.S. and managed to land teaching positions at the Community College of Rhode Island and at Brown University’s Summer Studies program. These days I teach (and learn!), play pedal steel guitar part time in country-western bands, and saxophone in CCRI’s small orchestra. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: jamming with Joff! One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Study early and often; if you like science, study literature, too; if you’re a humanist, take science courses; draw; and play an instrument.

In 1982 I married Judy James, a Spanish teacher at a suburban Detroit high school. Last November we celebrated our 28th anniversary. We have one child, Blair, now a grad student in education at George Washington University. She graduated from the University of Michigan last year and wants to following her mother’s footsteps. When I haven’t been traveling with the team or with Judy, I’ve been officiating high school and college football and basketball games.

Va. / Canal Zone 1965–1967 Occupation: professor of English Family: spouse, Marcia; child: Sam; grandchildren: Maya (11) and Noah (8) Personal interests and hobbies: squash, tennis, skiing; music, plays, and books; France, Italy and Spain What I’ve done and where I’ve been: I graduated Yale in 1965 and was commissioned in the Navy the same day. I spent two years in Virginia Beach or the Panama Canal Zone, but sometimes at sea. Two years teaching at the Peddie School before the Annenberg millions poured in, and a great summer at the Bread Loaf School of English convinced me to go back to graduate school. I met Marcia Shonnard, a cute IBM systems engineer, through faculty friends at Peddie. We married in the summer of 1969, and thanks to her patience and generosity, a fellowship or two, and the GI bill, I finished a Ph.D. in English at the University of Virginia in 1974. A year before, thanks this time to Marcia’s cuteness, I had a job at Sewanee (the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee), where I have been teaching ever since. I was chairman of the English Department off and on for 10 years, directed and taught in the Interdisciplinary Humanities Program for six or seven years, and organized and directed the writing program for several years. Tennessee made connections to New England a bit difficult, but we picked up the language quickly, kept a huge vegetable garden most summers, and spent 


sabbatical time in Italy, New Zealand, and lately New York City. Marcia left IBM to be the DP manager who installed Sewanee’s first computer and since then taught Computer Science and ran many parts of the university’s business side. Director of Personnel (We hadn’t started calling it human resources) was the last straw, and she retired in 2007. I then started a three–year phased retirement (meaning I teach one semester a year — no committees!), which becomes full time retirement after the fall semester of 2011. Recently we’ve spent much time in New York City and hope the Market and the Euro will let us travel more in France and Italy. And lately, I’ve caught up with Loomis friends in New York, New Haven, and Williamstown, and especially in snowy Utah. Our son Sam and his wife, Sarah, are parents of our two spectacular grandchildren: Noah and Maya. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Show up.

Currently my wife and I own and operate a small bed and breakfast on Nantucket called The Sherburne Inn. I am on the board of several island nonprofit organizations and play in a number of “super-senior” golf events. Favorite Memory from my Loomis Years: Making the game-ending tackle on a goal line stand against Choate to help our undefeated football team win its closest game. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Make reading a lifelong habit! Regardless of how specialized you become in your chosen career path, create a reading list for yourself that reflects the diversity of your Loomis “liberal arts” curriculum.

Personal interests and hobbies: my children, my grandchildren, golf, traveling, and getting my novel published What I’ve done and where I’ve been: My business allowed me to travel the world and meet and interview some amazing people in all walks of life. I broadcast from the Great Wall of China with N.Y.C. Mayor Koch, did three hours with Larry King from London during the Royal wedding, and flew on the first Concorde to land in N.Y.C. after two weeks in London and Paris researching the plane, attended Ronald Reagan’s Inauguration; met with President Carter in the Oval Office, visited all of NATO countries as a guest of General Al Haig, and landed in a chopper at the Iron Curtain; conducted a full orchestra at Carnegie Hall and danced with Minnie Mouse on the stage at Radio City! It was tough duty but someone had to do it! Favorite memory from my Loomis years: My last day after working in the kitchen for four years and graduating with “The Best of the Best.” I can’t wait to see everyone again at the reunion. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Be true to yourself no matter how tough the going might be, and when you meet “someone who knows everything,” they don’t!

In my four years there I did better in almost every respect than I had done at Loomis. In 1965 I was tapped for Blue Key, the then men’s honor society, and graduated with Honors in History. In 1965 I was married to a Middlebury classmate and enrolled in the University of Pennsylvania Law School where I later became articles editor of the Law Review and from which I graduated Cum Laude in 1968. In 1968–69 I served as a law clerk for Judge Abraham L. Freedman of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia. In 1969 I became an associate in the Cleveland office of the then large and now global and very large firm known as Jones Day. In the same year my son, David, was born. 



During the next 14 years, my life and job choices were heavily influenced by the significant challenges posed by my wife’s lengthy and ultimately losing battle with breast cancer and my responsibilities as a single parent. During those years, I worked as a law professor on the faculties of the Universities of North and South Carolina and Washington and Lee University. In 1983 I remarried and returned to law practice with Jones Day. I was made partner in that firm a few years later. My daughter, Sarah, was born in Cleveland in 1988. In 1993 I was induced by friends who knew of my experience in both law practice and legal academia to consider becoming a law school dean. In 1994 I was appointed dean of the then–independent Dickinson School of Law, Carlisle, Pennsylvania. My major visible accomplishment in that position was to lead the efforts that resulted in the merger of Dickinson School of Law with the Penn State University School of Law, as a result of which I worked for five years (1997–2002) as dean of Penn State’s law school. After eight years as a law school dean and following the election of Ed Rendell as Governor of Pennsylvania, I was appointed executive deputy general counsel of the governor’s office of General Council. In that position, I oversaw litigation conducted by lawyers in the executive branch of the Pennsylvania government. In 2006 I accepted the position I now hold: general counsel of the mid-sized (175 lawyers) law firm of Stevens & Lee, which has offices in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, and South Carolina. I provide legal and ethical advice to the law firm and its professionals, and I am responsible for the hiring and career development of young lawyers, a combination of enjoyable tasks that keep me very busy. My volunteer work is demanding but very interesting service on the American Bar Association’s Law School Accreditation Committee. In 2009 I finally got lucky in marriage when I was married to Pam Peterson Glenn, a teacher of English as a Second Language and more importantly, a terrific wife, mother, and stepmother. I hope to remain actively employed for a few more years despite the fact that I suffer from post–polio syndrome, a combination of disparate symptoms, the most serious of which is slowly developing recurrence of the paralysis of my right shoulder that was most severe 60 years ago when I contracted polio. But despite the nuisance of this condition, I am very happy to have a wonderful wife, great children and step children, and a lively granddaughter, Phillies tickets, and work that keeps me mentally younger than my body. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: Writing a story about a LoomisWilliston football game on the bus back to Windsor and having the article


published, intact, in The Hartford Courant; all of Jim Wilson’s classes One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Despite the great importance of your formal education at Loomis Chaffee and later, learn as much as you can from experience because some of your challenges in life will require responses for which no formal courses of study alone could possibly have prepared you.

William H. Hopkins 55 Windy Acres Charlestown NH 03603 603.504.6662 hpknslaw@comcast.net billhopkins@comcast.net

Education: four-year day student; B.A., English, Yale University ’65; J.D. Vanderbilt University ’68 Occupation: retired Family: spouse, Annita; children: Christina, Elizabeth, Amelia, William (the younger), and Rachel; grandchildren: Sarah (20), Youssef (19), Mehdi (16), Samuel (13), and Daniel (11) Personal interests and hobbies: other people’s children, wine, duplicate bridge, wine, the White Mountains of New Hampshire, wine, the once honorable profession of law, and, of course, my own children and grandchildren What I’ve done and where I’ve been: At Yale, I joined the track team to satisfy the PE requirement and, by senior year was Yale’s best hammer thrower. I am still fifth on the Yale all-time list. I actually qualified for the 1968 Olympic Trials and kept throwing the hammer and discus into the 1980s. After graduation, I married Rachel J. Pomeroy ’62 and went to law school. After teaching school for a year to avoid the draft, I joined a small law firm in Plymouth, New Hampshire, and practiced law in the same building until I retired as senior partner in 2002, burnt out, discarded by my wife, and disillusioned by the changes in my chosen profession. We sold our house on the hill, my office condo, and I moved away to find a new soul mate, Nita, a certified surgical assistant. I also finally took the tests to become a certified wine professional (by The Society of Wine Educators). During the years in Plymouth, I ran various entities (the Yale Club of New Hampshire, Bar committees, and the New Hampshire Bridge Association), was involved in local politics and charities, was a charter member of a new Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship, taught wine and bridge classes, coached track in the spring, skied and hiked, cut wood to heat our large modern home, and welcomed more than two dozen kids into our family: exchange students, Fresh Air Fund kids from New York, foster children, and troubled kids from the courts. Enriching the lives of other people’s kids was our continuing charitable activity as we endeavored to raise our own kids to become the best people they could be. My criminal law practice led to 


being appointed to the New Hampshire Adult Parole Board, where I served as vice chairman for 10 years; so, I also got to meet many of the state’s most evil individuals! I have survived three serious hospitalizations and probably should not have lived to be 67. I’m pretty much disabled now, but I have hosted a wine course on public television and continued that hobby. But, fellow classmates, I have learned enough to have abandoned the Republican party which, I believe, is responsible for the decline and fall of the United States of America. I think we have lived in the best of times in our history and that America and the world are facing very troubling times. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: During senior year, I used to occasionally pick up boarding friends who had sneaked out for dates. One night, the president of our class joined my date and me, and made out, VERY passionately and loudly in the back seat with a lovely young woman from West Hartford. Her contented moans have stayed with my erotic memory files since! One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: After you have completed your education and found a soul mate, figure out where the two of you want to live, and, if you can make a living there, GO and don’t look back. Becoming part of the fabric of a community is the best way to ensure happiness.

One of my proudest achievements was as founder/ producer/director of the Stamford Theater Works (1998–2008) in my hometown of Stamford, Connecticut. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: The entertaining and creative pranks that classmates would devise to escape from the rigorous academic pressure that was Loomis. However, sports, for me, was my personal means of escape, and so our 1960 undefeated football team must rank as my favorite Loomis memory — BUT making out with my prom date at the “Studio” is a close second! One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Don’t give up on your desire. If you don’t know what it is — find it! 

I worked in a family photo store/studio, delivered newspapers, visited Cuba, went to Loomis, and Washington and Lee University; I was in the U.S. Army for 12 months near Saigon and 6 months near Da Nang. I saw little action but did see Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, and Tokyo. I attended the University of Florida and received an M.A. in Political Science with an emphasis on Latin American studies, married Laurie, and thankfully still am. I then joined the CIA and worked on Latin America (analysis) and the new technologies (including something called ARPANET). Travels include: Cuba (again), Caribbean and Central America; South America; Africa; Summer Olympics in 1972, 1996, and 2000. When I retired, I got serious about photography and helped start a consortium of 90 artists, still taking pictures, some of which are actually for sale. Still traveling, including annual month-long road trips through the 50 states.

The CRM program, the only one of its kind in the United 


States, seeks to meet the need for scientifically trained specialists able to move effectively between the worlds of academia, research, policy, and management in three primary areas: coastal and estuarine ecology, coastal geosciences, and coastal social science and public policy. I received my undergraduate degree in government from Tufts University, a Ph.D. in political science from University of Connecticut, and did post-doctoral work as a fellow in the inaugural class of the Marine Policy and Ocean Management Program at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. I served in the National Science Foundation’s Office for the International Decade of Ocean Exploration, was deputy director of the Texas Sea Grant College Office, and the director of the Office of Research and sponsored programs at the University of Southern Mississippi. I have been a member or held leadership positions in professional organizations relating to science, environmental resource management, and public policy, including the Coastal Society, Ocean Leadership, Board on Oceans and Atmosphere, Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, the Albemarle Pamlico National Estuary Program, and the North Carolina Coastal Resources Law, Planning and Policy Center. I taught and wrote on United States marine policy, the role of science in the public policy process, and have had a long-term and continuing research interest in the policy processes that have shaped United States marine and coastal policy over the past five decades.

The older I get, the more radicalized I have become on behalf of the voiceless in society and those who will come after us. Working on blending patriotism with environmentalism as a viable methodology for motivating our generation to really demonstrate how we love our country; i.e., keep it healthy for Megan, Theo, and Belle; and all creation. I am starting three new companies simultaneously, each addressing some aspect of the patriotism/ environmental marriage. I am recruiting! Written a few books along the way, but I am most proud of being able to find a balance in my life; so, family, work, and charitable endeavors have gotten their fair share of me. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: The vicarious pleasure in my buddies’ 7-0 season; especially Cummings, Beams, and Karp. Being taken out of a baseball game after two pitches; I hit the first two batters I faced, and Ralph 


Erickson yanked me. The diversity of men, who each brought different gifts to the campus, and the down-time where we could just interact as friends. My peers and my professors encouraged me to think, and for this, I offer eternal gratitude. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: 1) Delight in the diversity in creation as one’s greatest teacher; 2) Don’t buy into the current mantra that success is measured by how much you acquire or your balance sheet. You won’t find meaning there; so, pursue doing well by doing good; the rewards are deeper and more lasting.

hemorrhage on a gorgeous Saturday in August 1988. My daughters and step-daughter graduated from LC, and all are pursuing their interests and goals in Boston and New York. My step-son is in Micronesia prosecuting criminals. I am about to start my 43rd year as a trial lawyer. My stock description of my practice is that I deal with disputes involving large sums of money and trashy (or worse) behavior by some or all involved. My firm gave me a sabbatical in 1986–87, which we spent living in Paris and introducing our children to Europe — a transformative experience for all. My wife, Lillian, and I are now looking at the next (final?) phase, although I am still resistant. We travel and play a lot of golf. I did spend a few years involved in management of our golf club including two years as president. The experience of being responsible for a decent–sized business owned by more than 1,000 of my closest friends was a great experience for someone who had spent four decades passing out advice. It was a blast, and I learned a lot. I have had more than my fair share of second chances in my life, for which I am very grateful. I strive to return the favor. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: Snow removal at the rink, especially after a blizzard that almost covered the boards — no Zamboni. I also think quite often about Tom Temple who was at Brown. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: With the exception of continuing to learn how to write, do not view college as merely a step to another level by taking courses that lead in that direction. Try to find the best teachers at your school and learn for learning’s sake.

Craig and Trinidad Pause

Education: four-year boarding student; B.A. engineering, political science, Northwestern University ’65; A.A. architecture design and construction, Santa Monica College ’96 Occupation: retired Family: spouse, Trinidad; children: Mark, Alfredo, Daniel, Veronica, Christopher, Edward, and Garry; grandchildren, Daryl (31); great-grandchildren: Adriane (28), Aimee (28), Kathryn (21), Steven (16), River (8), Alfredo (8), Alyssa (14), Kristina Marie (10), Andromeda (8), and Scott (3) Personal interests and hobbies: architecture (modern era) practical design, CADD or draft board; reading (history or historical fiction, numismatics (American), cooking (large groups, basic menus); commodity markets What I’ve done and where I’ve been: After graduating from Northwestern, I spent the ’60s and ’70s traveling the world under the auspices of PanAm, albeit on the poverty level. What a marvelous world of wonders we had then. The mid ’70s and ’80s found me raising my first family in the San Fernando Valley outside L.A., scrambling up within the PanAm organization, skiing on mountain snow in the morning and on ocean water later in the day, still using pass privileges to gander at the world. Then in the mid ’80s disaster struck. PanAm started floundering, the wife of 15 years decided to go find her “real” self, and our precious stock tanked. So, after accepting a quite generous buyout and losing a small fortune, a wife, and a child, I found myself unemployed, living on the boat in Marina Del Rey, and faced with the prospect of reinventing myself. After an abortive attempt at early retirement, I discovered a lady with six children who encouraged my very lost soul to try a different approach to life. Thus, after a year of gentle persuasion and abject coercion, I found that I had quit smoking, drinking, and abusing the universal expletives. I had joined an active religion, gone back to college for the architectural degree I had always desired, become employed by a very secure and remunerative U.S. Customs Service, and married to Trinidad De Los Reyes. The next 25 years has been 


a whirlwind of finishing raising the children into their own lives, working both northern and southern borders while based in L.A., finishing both of our degrees, getting Trinidad’s home-based legal business up and running, and toward the end, in nursing Trinidad back from a triple cerebral aneurism. When the customs service morphed into Homeland Security, I retired permanently at first opportunity, and we now spend our entire time together between Palm Desert, Culver City, Las Vegas, and Kapa’a Kauai. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: There are so many from which to choose. From watching Sputnik traverse the inky black autumn sky outside Maher House, riding the cows at night on the farm, exploring the steam tunnels, interacting with the townies of Windsor; I guess the most poignant is the most unforgettable. When I was a freshman, living in Maher House, on Sundays I would walk down the Farmington River toward the Connecticut River with the only two friends I was sure I had in the world. Jason and Ginger were their names — the golden retrievers of Skac House and Nick Rogers. And they would stay with me while I read. God, I was homesick. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: From kindergarten through the eighth grade you received your basic training, the tools with which to format your universe: basic, unsexy, repetitious, and boring. Throughout your four years at Loomis you were presented with a smorgasbord of new concepts, thoughts, actions, reactions, theories, attitudes, and personalities. Now comes college and the chance to refine your position in your universe; just don’t forget the basics.

I was attached to the Marines for two years, and after completion, went back to Mass General to complete my surgical training. I became board certified in general surgery, and I worked in Exeter, New Hampshire; and Clarksville, Tennessee; finally completing my professional career in Ottawa, Kansas. I was president of the medical staff in Exeter and president of Premier Medical Group in Clarksville. I was chairman of the Planning Board in 


Kensington, New Hampshire; on the boards of trustees of both the hospital and the local church. The best thing I have ever done is staying married to my closest friend for 45 years. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: Without a doubt, the best memories are my years on the varsity teams coached by Ralph Erickson: football, basketball, and baseball. He was one of the finest men I have ever known. I also remember fondly several faculty members such as Mr. Worthington and Mr. Joffray. Mr. Nick Rogers, who taught me physics at Loomis, became my patient while I worked in Exeter. He and his wife were wonderful people. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Try to learn about many different professions during your summers and vacations. There are lots of choices for meaningful careers that you will never know about if you wait for someone else to guide you. You must take an active role in discovering the unique opportunity that is right for you and will lead to both financial success and happiness.

Yale University ’72 Occupation: financial analyst, vice president for credit/loss analysis Family: spouse, Monica MacAdams; daughter, Ashley Personal interests and hobbies: fantasy baseball and a cappella singing What I’ve done and where I’ve been: I took a break from law school in 1967 to become a VISTA volunteer as community organizer in the South Bronx (1968– 69); I was special assistant to Sen. Charles Goedell (1969–1971) and author of the legislation to cut off funding for Vietnam War (S 3,000) and then returned to law school after his defeat. I was legislative assistant to Sen. Mac Mathias (1973– 1976); special assistant to HUD Secretary Carla Hills (1976–77); consultant to Felix Rohayton (1977–78), dep. director of NYS Emergency Control Board (1978–79), dep. director NYC OMB (1979-1982), pres. of NYC Housing Development Corp. (1982–1984). I jumped into the private sector in 1984 and have been cleaning up financial disasters ever since. I launched BIG — Bond Investors Guaranty, a municipal bond insurer joint venture of AIG and Solomon Brothers in 1984; joined E.F. Hutton in 1986 — couldn’t save them; saved Dime Savings Bank of New York acquired by WAMU in 2001 (but couldn’t save WAMU). Now forecasting credit losses at Freddie Mac; so far so good. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: the night we used silverware from the dining hall to inscribe our class year (1961) in the so-called “Senior Path.” (We were sophomores at the time, I think.) One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Find a way to give back. 

I have always been physically active, and after Loomis, I lettered in soccer at Harvard and later played in a semipro league in Toronto. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: the camaraderie in playing soccer and singing with the Glee Club and Pelicans One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Try to attend as many reunions as possible, as probably some of your longest lasting friends will be your Loomis classmates and not necessarily the ones you were closest to while at Loomis.

My work life focused on helping improve the lives of children and has been a wonderful run. Now my wonderful wife, Joan, and I split our time between Grafton, not far from two of our granddaughters, and a vacation home in Tamworth, New Hampshire. Life is good. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: The friends I made.

After graduate school (six years at night while working for Federal Paperboard and living in Stamford), I moved to Wilton at age 28 (where Tony Kissling and Steve Pettit lived) and became a financial advisor with Eastman Dillon — through mergers it became UBS. I then moved to Morgan Stanley in 2007 and Westport Resources in June 2010. We renovated our summer house in Fenwick (tore down and rebuilt in 2009) and moved here to semiretire over the next 10 years. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: rolling beds over from Founders in the middle of the night with Nick Feakins and others One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Try to keep a network of friends, or to reestablish one after college as I did with Ned Babbitt, Sam Havens, and Tony Kissling where we get together every year for a golf match. 

Education: four-year day student; B.A. history, Yale University ’65; M.A. Latin American Studies, Stanford University ’69; Ph.D. history, Stanford University ’75; M.B.A. University of California-Berkeley ’77 Military Service/Branch: U.S. Army, Artillery, Fort Knox, Ky.; company commander basic training unit1966–67; Vietnam, artillery forward observer, battery executive officer (196th Light Infantry Brigade, headquarters based in Chu Lai and Tam, Ky.) 1967–68 Occupation: retired Family: spouse, Teresa Perez Wibel (1970–2003 deceased); Eileen Kobrin (2004–present) Personal interests and hobbies: jazz, antique maps (16th and 17th centuries) What I’ve done and where I’ve been: After college, I spent a year in Mexico and studied Latin America at Stanford after military service (including one year in combat in Vietnam in the First Corp area from Chu Lai to DMZ). I earned a Ph.D. just about the time that interest in Latin America (provoked by Cuba), in the U.S., started to end. I earned an M.B.A. to obtain a job in banking and spent two years in Mexico financing the mining industry before returning to domestic banking, moving from Bank of America to First Interstate. I loved California, but with the purchase of my bank by Wells Fargo, I moved back East to finish my career with AIG as a credit officer. I retired just before the BIG financial collapse at AIG. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: The exposure to so many new ideas and philosophies. I have managed to acquire about 4,000 books, which should keep me busy. Unfortunately, I developed my interest before Kindle, just as I finished my Ph.D., and just before the personal computer became common. One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Explore as much as you can about intellectual life. If you become aware of how broad the world is, that will stay with you. I have traveled to more than 70 countries and still want to understand more. Hopefully I will be able to continue to learn more. Do as much as you can now, because years will pass so quickly. 


My first wife died of cancer at 56 years old, and one of the features of our life together was to do and see as much as possible. That provides some small comfort for losing her at a relatively young age.

University of West Los Angeles ’83 Occupation: Los Angeles superior court hearing officer Family: single Personal interests and hobbies: dogs and dog rescue; and Long Beach Opera, Los Angeles Philharmonic/Disney Concert Hall; gym workouts; reading The New Yorker magazine; politics; and travel What I’ve done and where I’ve been: I taught secondary school for many years. I decided to do a mid-life career change and went back to law school (working and law school for four years: something I would not or could not do again). I passed the California Bar in 1983 and had a solo practiced for a number of years. I was interviewed and was accepted as a superior court hearing officer in Department 95-Mental Health Court. I conduct involuntary commitment and medication hearings. I find it interesting and varied work, but often stressful. I transitioned to independent contractor status in 2007. I will continue working for a while longer. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: Mo Brown and English literature/ composition One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis Chaffee graduate: Believe in yourself and your abilities and try new experiences all the time. Stay connected with things you enjoy, and minimize or eliminate the negatives.

638 White Oaks Road Williamstown MA 01267 413.458.0022 davewilson@roadrunner.com Education: four-year day student; B.A. American Studies, Williams ’65; M.A. English, Middlebury College ’75 Military Service/Branch: Army 1967–1970 Occupation: retired Family: spouse, Alice; child, Samantha Personal interests and hobbies: golf, skiing, reading, college sports, art museums, summer theater/dance/music, auditing classes, and travel What I’ve done and where I’ve been: my post-college career was teaching (English) and coaching (soccer, golf, others) at two boarding schools and a day school. Satisfying and rewarding, (not financially) for the most part, I nevertheless retired in 1999 at age 55 and haven’t regretted it for a second. I spend my time playing golf, skiing, helping with stats and host charts for the Williams men’s soccer team, auditing classes at Williams (more than 25 in the last 11 years); reading murder mysteries and novels; being involved with three art museums; enjoying summer theater/music/dance in the Berkshires; getting together with visiting Williams classmates; and travelling at least once a year to Europe (over 25 trips) and other parts of the world (Tunisia, Vietnam, Thailand, Mexico, and Guatemala to date). I’m blessed with a wonderful wife (got it right the second time!) and a terrific 28-yearold daughter who is teaching and coaching at St. Mark’s School in Southborough, Massachusetts. I see Ned Babbitt a lot and enjoy our golf and skiing together. My golf includes “rating” golf courses for Golfweek Magazine’s “top 100 courses” lists, and this takes me all over the country and to the British Isles. I’ve been lucky and fortunate to have lived and continue to live an interesting, active, and satisfying life. Favorite memory from my Loomis years: morning break in the SNUG; proms; soccer with Frank House and Tony Worthington, golf with Dave Simpson, and French classes with Joe Stookins; going to “Barts”; Bill Kates “taking a shot” from townies for defending the school’s honor; good friendships One piece of advice I would give to a new Loomis graduate: Do what you are good at and enjoy doing it. In other words “follow your bliss.” Take every opportunity to learn more about the arts (painting, music, and dance) and to travel. Knowing about art, architecture, etc., will make travel interesting and enjoyable. Read a lot. 
