1957 Sewickley Traditions, Anne Smith Vanderwolk ’37 lives in Pinehurst, North Carolina, and the late Anne McKnight Murdock ’37 lived in Sewickley. The story of the friendship of the three Annes, which crosses decades of adventures, families, and travel, is a heartwarming example of what lifetime friendship with Academy classmates can mean. They sorely miss “Mick.”

Former faculty members Mary Nichols, Ann deChambeau, and former Head of Senior School Jim Cavalier got together in Naples, Florida, last winter.

1936 Caroline Craig Sutton ’36 is now living in a retirement community called Jefferson’s Ferry on Long Island in New York. Her daughter, Ann, is a biology professor at SUNY Stony Brook and lives only 15 minutes away. Her daughter, Judith, writes and edits cookbooks in New York City. Caroline still makes a few toy ferry boats in her free time.

1937 The “three Annes” have been friends since kindergarten at the Academy, 84 years ago. They gathered in November for a final reunion with much reminiscing and laughter. Anne Blair Bauer ’37 lives in Sewickley and owns

Anne McKnight Murdock ’37, Anne Smith Vanderwolk ’37, and Anne Blair Bauer ’37 celebrated a friendship of 84 years in November.

1941 Evelyn Forcey Gosko ’41 writes, “Hard to believe only six of us remain. Flirted with a reunion this year, but not on my agenda. Please get in touch with me, ‘Cissy’, and we can see what we are all doing, maybe even pull together a reunion. I have two homes, one in Minneapolis and one in Key Largo, Florida. My husband and I are celebrating our 64th year together. My email is for any classmates trying to get in touch!”

1955 Joan Foedisch Adibi ’55 and husband Siamak had a wonderful trip to China recently. They have had a very busy year enjoying their grandchildren, including their daughter’s recent twins. They split their time between their home in Pittsburgh and their home in Chappaquiddick, Massachusetts.

Mark your calendars for your 55th class reunion - October 5-6, 2012. Contact your class agent, Jamie Wardrop, at jwardrop@ or 412-741-6060 for more information and to volunteer to help plan the reunion festivities! Jamie Wardrop ’57 writes, “I am still enjoying work in the Academy’s art department as the Senior School photography teacher and the school photographer.  I continue to be the ‘grinch,’ hiding away in my barn with my dogs and antique fire engine collection. In spite of my ‘grinchiness,’ I have been blessed by two great-nieces and a great-nephew from brother Bill’s (’55) daughter Elizabeth ’91, and sister Nina’s (’62) daughter Georgiana.  The little tikes are awfully cute and fun to play with. I would love to hear more from old buddies in the Classes of ’56, ’57, and ’58 like Chris Hutchinson ’57, Dick Hull ’57, Dick Sentner ’57, Pete Amerman ’57, Dave Gibson ’58, Nancy Gardner ’57, Chan Lewis ’57, Craig Wilson ’57, Kay Graham ’57, and Freddie French ’57 – all of whom should be writing in and letting us know what they have been doing lately besides planning their trips to our big reunion in 2012.  With lots of time to plan it, we should be able to get a really big group back here.  Last reunion, in 2007, though a
