2

T oral gifts to T~inity topped out at $4,971,134 in 1983-84, a new record for the College and up more than $622,000 from last year. Annual giving surpassed its goal for the seventh consecutive year, with gifts from alumni, parents, friends and corporations totalling $1,218,639. The Parents Fund was particularly outstanding, exceeding expectations by 28%, with a total of $153,525 contributed. "The outstanding record of our Annual Fund is the result of hard work by our volunteer leaders - class agents and others who believe in the importance of helping Trinity maintain its margin of excellence," said President English. "We are grateful to them and to the thousands of donors who continue to support the College." Annual giving includes unrestricted gifts which are used to meet the operating expenses of the College. Contributions to the endowment and special funds totalled $3,752,495. This figure includes the $1 2 million gift of ornithological materials from Trustee Emeritus Ostrom Enders of Avon, CT. Leaders for the Annual Fund were Trustees Morris Lloyd, Jr. '60, chairman of annual giving, William R. Peelle '44, chairman of the Business and Industry Associates, and Peter A. Hoffman '61, chairman of the Alumni Fund. Ira H. Washburn, Jr. headed the Parents Fund, and Mrs. Walter H. Gray led the Friends. Mrs. William W. Cunningham II was in charge of Freshman Parent organization and solicitation. Douglas T. Tansill '61 and Wylie H.

creasing needs for student financial aid, challenges alumni, parents, friends and corporations to achieve higher levels of giving. The College counts on the Annual Fund when pr~paring the operating budget, which is $27.4 million for 1984-'85. Keys to a successful campaign include new as well as continued memberships in The President's Circle and The Founders' Society, as well as other giving clubs; greater participations from alumni, particularly those in the larger, more recent classes; and a special, increased effort by classes celebrating reunions next June. The end of the fundraising period will now coincide with Reunion. According to Frank W. Sherman 'SO, director of Annual Giving, the decision was made "because it seems right to finish just after Commencement, when

CAPITAL, ILLINOIS SCHOLARSHIPS

6

Four students from the Hartford area have been awarded Capital Area Scholarships to attend Trinity this fall. These scholarships, which have been awarded annually for twenty-five years, are presented to students from the Capital region on the basis of academic achievement and need. They provide recipients with financial grants for the full amount of their need for four years at Trinity. For the third year, the scholarsh ips are being underwritten by area corporations under the Capital Area Corporate Scholars program. Participating companies include: Cigna, The Hartford Insurance Group, Dexter, Emhart, Connecticut National Bank, United Technologies, The Aetna Foundation, Coleco Industries, Inc., The Barnes Group, Inc., The Hartford Courant Foundation, and The Heublein Fou ndation. This year's scholars are: Lisa AlvarezCalder6n of Collinsville (Granby High School), Constantine Andrews of Newington (Newington High School), Marlene Murphy of Wethersfield (Wethersfield High School), and James O'Laughlin of Manchester (Manchester High School). Three students have been awarded Illinois Scholarships. These sch olarships, established in 1948, are given to Illinois residents on the basis of academic credentials and need. The students are: Catherine Daly of Decatur (St. Theresa High School), John MaHaney of Morris (Morris High School), and Charles Valentincic, Jr. of Wadsworth (Lake Forest Academy).

CLASS OF '34 SCHOLARSHIP FUND The Class of 1934 has designated its Fiftieth Reunion Fund for scholarships. The fund, started in June, 1959, at their 25th Reunion, now totals more

than $65,000. More than $10,000 of this amount has been contributed in the past year. Thanks to the efforts of the late John Mason, and to regular reminders from classmates Chuck Kingston, Andy Onderdonk and John Kelly - and most especially, because of the generosity of the class- the Class of 1934 fund has grown to its present size - and will continue to grow. A number of members of the class have designated the fund for bequests. In addition to supporting the class fund, '34 has given generously to the A lumni Fund. This is evidenced by the number of times that this class has captured back its own trophy, the Class of 1934 Alumni Fund Trophy. Other classes, including 1936, 1938, 1939, 1944, 1959, 1962, 1963 and 1966, have followed the lead of the Class of 1934 by establishing funds to which class members may add over the years, and for which a purpose will be established at a major reunion.

HOLLAND SCHOLARS NAMED The highest-ranking members of the sophomore, junior and senior classes have been named the Holland Scholars for 1984-85. They are: Susanne C. Hupfer '87, James P. Sickinger '86, and Craig M. Tateronis '85. The Holland Scholarships are awarded annually and entitle the recipients to full remission of their tuition for the year. The scholarships are funded from a bequest by Mrs. Frances ]. Ho lland, the daughter of Thomas Brownell, founder of the College. Hupfer, a sophomore from Wethersfield, CT, was a National Merit Scholar. Last semester, she was awarded a prize for excellence in German as well as The Chemical Rubber Company Award for outstanding achievement in general chemistry. She sings with the Hartford Saengerbund, a German choral group in the area . Sickinger, a classics major from West Simsbury, CT, is a member of the varsity football team and was awarded a letter last year. A Capital Area Scholar, he has received prizes for excellence in Greek, Latin and mathematics. This is the second year

Sickinger has won the Holland Scholarship. Tateronis is a political science major from Auburn, MA. He also won the Holland Scholarship last year.

ELDERHOSTEL EXPANDS TOPERUGIA Trinity's Elderhostel program, which began on the Hartford campus in 1981 and expanded to the Rome campus in 1983, found a new site in Perugia, Italy, this summer. The Perugia program, which was organized and directed by Professor Michael R. Campo of the modern languages department, consisted of two, two-week sessions in June and Jul y. The curriculum included courses in Umbrian art, modern Italian history, Etruscan civilization and political and social problems of Italy. Faculty were recruited from Trinity's Rome campus and the University of Perugia. Dr. Borden W. Painter, Jr., Trinity's act ing dean of faculty, taught in both Perugia and Rome. Eighty-two Elderhostelers, all Americans, participated in the program. Meanwhile, Trinity Elderhostels continued in Rome, where 264 students attended four, two-week sessions, and in Hartford, where about 200 students came to campus during the five-week program . Trinity faculty continue to give the older students rave reviews. Economics Professor Robert A. Battis, who taught a course on the economics of the Soviet Union, found the hostelers "inquisitive," and "with the wealth of human experience" that undergraduates don't have. "Some were second generation Americans, with fami ly roots in the Ukraine, and that intensified their interest in my subject matter," he says. "And, they were awake at 8:30am!" Elderhostel is an educational program for adu lts over 60 years of age with an interest in a low-cost, vacation learning experience. Started in 197 5, Elderhostel has expanded to 700 campuses in the U.S. and several foreign countries. Trinity is the only college offering Elderhostel programs in Italy and fur-

Commencement '84 A

s every class at Trinity seems to develop .a unique style and history, so, too, do the commencements which signal their entrance into the world at large. The 158th Commencement, and the Class of '84 were no exception. This year's ceremony May 20th was marked by fortuitous cooperation from the elements on a damp, overcast day which saw brief sprinklings at noon and heavier showers shortly after the formal

program had ended. An audience of several thousand enjoyed the witty and sage remarks of Commencement speaker Brendan Gill, noted critic and author, and applauded the accomplishments of the graduates. Particularly noteworthy were the achievements of Valedictorian Ian McFarland, a classics major from Marlborough, CT. McFarland earned the Holland Scholarship for three consecutive years as the student with the highest average in

his class, received numerous prizes and awards as an undergraduate, and on graduation was awarded the W.H. Russell Fellowship and a Thomas F. Watson Fellowship for study in Europe. In addition to being named Valedictorian, McFarland had earned the distinction of Optimus - for attaining the grade of A- or better in -all required courses. Salutatorian Margaret Reimer earned the distinction of Optima as well. The Class of '84 blazed its own historic trail: for the first time there were more women graduates (212) than men (202). In addition, the Senior C lass Committee introduced some innovations to the traditional senior activities. In an effort to build class identity and spirit, according to committee member Jane Melvin '84, the group planned the first event, a Sunday champagne brunch, to be held in March. To the senior week activities in May they added an evening cruise along the Connecticut River and arranged to have the Senior Ball held outside on the patio of the newly-renovated Mather Campus Center. Finally, on Commencement Day the committee gave a single yellow rose to every woman graduate. Members of the Class of '84 also gave generously to the Class Gift, contributing over $2,000 to the Senior Class Scholarship Fund, which was started by the Class of '82. This scholarship goes to a rising senior who has never received financial aid but requires it in the senior year. This year's undergraduate degree recipients came from 29 states, the D istrict of Columbia, and four foreign countries. Of the Class's 414 members, 141, or approximately one-third, were from Connecticut. In addition, there were 29 recipients of master's degrees and six individuals who were awarded honorary degrees.

THE PRESIDENT'S CHARGE TO THE CLASS OF 1984

V

ou have nearly finis h ed your time as students at

~ Trinity, and perhaps as formal students any-

where. I'm sure it's a happy period in your lives, but perhaps a somewhat scary one, as well. I suspect that right now there is a big question in your minds, and that is: "What will happen to me next? What can I expect? Can I, like the person in the proverb, expect to be healthy, wealthy, and wise?" Let's think for a minute about your expectations. Can you expect to be healthy? Almost certainly yes. You live in a time when people have learned to understand the body, to cure it of many ills, and to alleviate its pain. Take care of it, and it will last you much longer than the finest motor car that was ever built. And help take care of the world's body, too. In the nuclear age we are all uncomfortably prone to suffer together the great and final common accident. So make the world's health your concern also . Can you expect to be wealthy? Almost certainly no. But you do live in a society in which, if you apply yourself, you will have all that you need: clean shelter, comfortable clothes, and interesting, nourishing food. You can raise a family, go places, see and learn things. Remember, that you do not have to own Cape Cod in order to walk on the beach. Can you expect to be wise? Yes, almost as wise as you choose to be. You live in a place where there is no book you cannot borrow and almost no play you cannot see or concert you cannot hear, right in your own home; a place where history screens itself before your very eyes. You have formed a solid foundation of knowledge here at Trinity College; so delight in the expectation that it will grow constantly broader and deeper in years ahead. It need never stop growing, no matter how old or feeble or indigent you become. Perhaps you have one final question: Can you expect to be happy? Of course you can. You are blessed to be a human being, with the capacity to work and learn and create and love. You live in a world - or a part ~f the world- in which the real physical necessities of life will be yours, almost for the asking. So do not frustrate yourselves with unnecessary worries or unrealistic expectations about the unimportant things you do not truly need and are beyond your control. But cultivate high expectations for yourselves and for the important things within your control. I know that these expectations will be realized abundantly in your lives, and tj:lat you will fihd a happiness and a fulfillment which will delight us who remain at Trinity, who have known you, and who wish you true success with all our hearts. James F. English, Jr. May 20, 1984

IN HIS ADDRESS to the Class President English exhorted the graduates to expand their knowledge and develop high expectations for themselves. Below, a proud family poses with its graduate.

THE COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS by Brendan Gill

h, how lucky I am to be here. A Doctor at last! And in my home town, too. My father was a real doctor here in Hartford, a sawbones, who could chop people up and put them together again. But I never for a moment hoped to follow in his footsteps. For one thing, I couldn't stand the sight of blood. And I suppose nothing could be less reassuring for a patient than to have a surgeon pass out cold just at the moment he was starting to operate. For another thing, I was too scatterbrained a student to achieve the discipline required of a doctor. When it came to mastering a subject I always tended to fall back upon improvisation instead of scholarly diligence. When I was studying mathematics at the Kingswood School here, I was the despair of my teacher, Mr. McGuinn, because I used to make up the answer first and work my way back to the proposition. One year, taking my college boards in geometry, I received a 32, the lowest grade given to anybody in the entire United States that year. Up to that time Mr. McGuinn had been thoroughly ashamed of me. But from

that moment on, he began to take a certain pride in my peculiar accomplishment. After all, I had become a superlative of a kind. As between one superlative and another, worst has precisely the same value as best. Once when 路one of our sons was being interviewed by the dean of admissions at Yale, the dean turned to me and asked me what class I had been a member of, and when I said "1936" he groaned and said, "Oh God, we were scraping the bottom of the barrel that year!" And so they were. To show you what a miserable student I was, and how unjustly fortunate I was in my schoolhood days: my senior year at Yale, I had cunningly worked my way down to taking a single course, which met but once a week. Moreover, I was the only student in the course, which had to do with seventeenth century lyric verse in England. I had written but a single paper, when my poor professor shot and killed himself. Not because of my paper, I assure you, but for more appropriate reasons. Because he had given me a high


The Class of '84 hears merry words of wisdom from a distinguished Hartford son. grade on that paper, and because the English department didn't know what else to do with me, that single grade became my so-called average for the year. And so I was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and to other, totally undeserved honors. And now you know why I said at the beginning of these remarks how lucky I feel to be standing here today, characteristically embezzling a degree, while all of you have spent hard years earning yours. Or am I wrong? Are you all improvident scamps like me? Have you discovered how easy life can be? If instead of being difficult, you simply put your shoulder to the wheel and not push, and the wheel gives way. On an occasion like this, I am supposed to strike a serious, if indeed not a solemn note, and to warn you that they are not long, the days of wine and roses. Well, fiddle-faddle! We spring from a Puritan culture. And we cast a fearful eye upon merry occasions, sure that sooner or later we must be severely punished for having enjoyed ourselves. That was how people felt here in Hartford when I was growing up, and perhaps they still do. But between you and me, they are radically wrong. Some years ago, I set down my conviction that not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the argument that life is serious, though it is often hard and even terrible. And saying that, I was prompted to add that since everything ends badly for us in the inescapable catastrophe of death, it ~eems obvious that the first rule of life is to have a good time. The second rule of life is to injure as few people as possible in the course of doing so. There is no third rule. Well, my Puritan friends were highly disapproving of this pagan formulation of mine. But I see no reason, year after year, to alter it. Life is a fine thing and well worth the living. But the terms in which one lives it and the means one employs in the course of achieving one's good times are subject, of course, to constant sc:rutiny. For pagans, like Puritans, have standards of excellence, though they are by no means the same standards. It was Whitman, greatest of our poets, who sought to point the way for us. Whitman said, "0, to sing the most jubilant song," and for him that jubilation was earned out of a life of largely secret anguish, both in respect to his family and to himself. And it was Emerson, Whitman's mentor and champion, who said, "Give all to love, when the half-gods go, the gods arrive." Not that Emerson was all that ready to follow his own precept. Concord in the nineteenth century was just as leery of happiness as Hartford used to be. If you felt happy, something awful was probably just about to happen. Well, it is not so. If you feel happy, you will almost certainly provide the occasion for happiness in others. Happiness is a benign infection, and in an ideal society might well reach epidemic proportions. Alas, we

are far from living in that ideal society. Neither in our personal lives nor in our professional lives are we allowed to be at ease with ourselves. "To loaf and invite our souls," as Whitman said. Instead we pitch into a headlong pursuit of what William James long ago called the "bitch goddess success" - that fierce rat race which nobody wins, though one rat may emerge ahead of another as he plunges into the grave. We live today in an age of hype, an age in which as Andy Warhol has said, "Everybody deserves to be famous for fifteen minutes." And what follows from this proposal is something familiar to all of you: that the person we recognize as a celebrity is someone who is famous for being well-known. It is an age, as Adlai Stevenson pointed out, in which a man has to prove himself unfit for public office in order to be elected to it. Hype has everything to do with making good, but

of living a good life it knows nothing. It cares everything for our price and nothing for our value. It usurps and exhausts our energies, and when we reach out to seize the prize that we assume it offers us, there is simply nothing there. Our greedy hands close upon emptiness. I see no sign this age of hype is coming to an end. On the contrary, we are ever increasingly a society of consumers, and what we consume strikes me as being daily of less worth. The best we can do in our architecture is to build a Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York, where in shiny brass and voluptuous pink marble, the message incessantly repeats itself, "buy, buy, buy." In what was once a school of higher education in New York, a course is now taught in window box gardening. How to grow dill and rosemary, to say nothing, I suppose, of marijuana, on your window sill. What on earth is all this nonsense about? The one sure thing is that it has nothing to do with what is on earth, and of the earth, and in the earth, nothing to do with how we are as sentient beings, capable of touching each other and being touched. Everything is so much easier, and gentler and more agreeable than the age of hype is prepared to let us believe. Once upon a time, Madame de Stael, in her villa Lac Leman, was giving a party, and she took her latest young man around the salon, introducing him to the distinguished guests present. Afterward, one of these guests protested that the young man had little in the way of small talk. "Ah," said Madame de Stael, "speech is not his language." And so it is with all of us. There are many kinds of language, and speech has little to do with most of them. You have come this far to this time and to this place by dint of nearly always obeying rules and nearly always following the leader. But this occasion is indeed a commencement, far more a beginning than an end. And what could begin for you here is an end to merely obeying rules and following leaders. I am aware that this is a challenge not readily accessible to all of you who are going on to schools of law and medicine and the like. But surely there are a goodly number of you for whom a diploma isn't really a passport to still another educational destination, but a statement of achievement that you are now blessedly free to set your own course in the world. Which I hope means doing battle with the false gods that beset you on every hand.

Meanwhile, and without the least trace of shame, continue wherever possible to take ruthless advantage of your parents and other relatives. You must never let them forget that they brought you into the world without consulting you. And that their obligation to you can, therefore, never be discharged. Take as a model Bernard Shaw, sitting at ease in The British Museum in his late thirties while his poor old mother went on giving voice lessons to help keep him alive. Shaw said later, "I didn't throw myself into the struggle for life, I threw my mother in." Your parents ought to be able to take good care of you well into your fifties and sixties. Insist upon securing from them full financial disclosure. Make sure that if they ever wish to go on a holiday, they ask your permission to do so. Make sure also that they keep their hospital expenses to a minimum. Nothing is more distressing to right-thinking young folk than to see their parents and grandparents lolling about in hospitals when they ought to be hard at work . . Have I any further words of advice to impart to you with the authority that my cap and gown appears to grant to me? Well, perhaps two, the first of which comes from a wonderful early friend of mine, Mrs. Frederick Lewis Allen, who told me once that her father had taken her aside and said that while he could leave no wealth to her, he could give her words of advice that would be worth more to her than any amount of gold or silver. The first was that she was never to sit down at a cocktail party, and the second was that she was never to put her tongue on the runner of a cold sled. Armed with this advice, Mrs. Allen sailed untroubled through life. Finally - and is there a more beautiful word in the English language than "finally," unless of course, it be those two words, "in conclusion?"- And so finally, and in conclusion, I give you a few words of Yeats, the poet by whom I have always lived and by whom I intend to die. In age, Yeats wrote of the preciousness of life, of its richness and savor, and said that he would be prepared to live it all again, even if life were to prove to have no more meaning than blind men battering other blind men in a ditch. To lead a worthy life, Yeats said, we must learn to accept it all, rejoice in it all, without regret or remorse, because, he said, "When such as I cast out remorse/So great a sweetness flows into the breast/ We must laugh and we must sing,/We are blest by everything/Everything we look upon is blest." And this is what old Dr. Gill- no, new Dr. Gill, if not young Dr. Gill - wishes for you on the luckiest of days for him. Thank you very much. • Brendan Gill is the drama critic for The New Yorker.

Alumni like the varied activities, the chance to stay on campus, and the family orientation of the program. Spouses and children seem to have just as good a time at Trinity Reunion as the graduates do. The festivities started on Thursday and culminated in the Half-Century Club Dinner, wh ere 24 members of the Class of 1934 were inducted into the club. On

Friday, a full schedule of lectures and seminars by faculty began; this aspect of Reunion continues to generate great alumni enthusiasm and participation. Some of the topics offered this year were: "Heroes and Villains in the World of Sports," "The Art of Adultery in Indian Painting," "Congress and Special Interests," and "The Bishops, the Bible, and the Bomb." There was plenty of music for the ears, highlighted by a fabulous Broadway musical revue directed by Dr. Gerald Moshell and performed by students, and a jazz concert by Charlie Weeks' ('59) "Hornblowers."

AWARDS

EIGENBRODT CUP AWARD Thomas Deal Reese, Jr. Class of 1961

20

Fifteen years ago Trinity honored this alumnus 路 with an Achievement in Life Award in recognition of his gallant combat record with the U.S. Marine Corps. Regrettably, this life that was so full of promise was taken from us in a tragic accident last December. In the span of his brief but shining 44 years, however, he exemplified the qualities that make not only a superb Marine, but also an exceptional human being. His leadership qualities were evident in his undergraduate years when he was captain of the freshman and varsity football teams, president of the sophomore dining club, senior warden of the Chapel vestry, a member of the student senate, co-chairman of the Canterbury Club and vice president of Alpha Delta Phi. Commissioned in the Marines following graduation he served in the Corps for nine years, seeing combat service in the Dominican Republic and as a company commander in VietNam for which he was awarded the Silver Star and three Purple Hearts. In keeping with his unselfish character, he was wounded while braving enemy fire to rescue a fallen member of his rifle company. After an extended recuperation he left the Marine Corps in 1970 to become a Congressional Liaison Officer in the Postmaster General's Office, while simultaneously earning an M.B.A. degree from George Washington University. He rose rapidly through the administrative ranks of the Postal Service, serving as special assistant to several top ranking agency officials including the Post Master General. In 1981 he was

there was plenty of fine food for the palate at the New England Clambake Friday under class tents on the quad, and at Class Dinners Saturday at various locations on campus. The newly-expanded Mather Campus Center, particularly the air conditioned Cave-Pub facility, provided bright, new facilities for the weekend. The sports program came off surprisingly well, given the heat. Younger alumni in particular got into the annual softball game, which was moved from the softball diamond to the shadier quad. One of the most popular spots on campus all weekend was Trow bridge pool, and the posted hours were extended to give alumni a better chance to get down to Ferris to cool off. Children of all ages were on hand for Reunion. Preschoolers were cared for in a nursery .in Funston Dorm, while older children were kept busy with the All-Sports Camp, movies, cookouts and a day trip to Mystic Aquarium.

EIGENBRODT A WARD is accepted by Mrs. Thomas D. Reese. named director of the Office of Strategic Analysis in charge of economic forecasting. Shortly before his death he left the Postal Service to become a vice president of Ziehl Associates, a New York telecommunications firm. His devotion to Trinity was legendary: it is said that hardly a day went by that he did not find time to telephone one of his classmates. His loyal service as a class agent inspired his countless Trinity friends to achieve record levels of support for their alma mater. The Trinity Club of Washington, D.C. remembers him as one of its most active and dedicated members. Mr. President, it is with pride that we salute one of Trinity's most beloved sons by naming him posthumously for the highest award that can be given an alumnus. The Eigenbrodt Cup is given to THOMAS DEAL REESE, JR. Class of 1961.

The Annu al Reunion Class Parade seems to gain more momentum each year, with the senior classes glad to see the old tradition back in style, and with the younger alums ready and willing to get in line. Afterwards, the National Alumni Association recognized some of its most outstanding members. In addition to those pictured here, awards were given t,o the following: The George C. Capen Trophy went to the Trinity Club of Hartford as best alumni club, and the Jerome Kohn Award for highest percentage of classmates returning to Reunion was won by the Class of 1934. The 1916 Alumni Fund Trophy went to the Class of 197 3 for the best fundraising record among the younger classes, while the Class of 1934 Trophy for the best Alumni Fund record among all the classes was awarded to the Class of 1960. T wo members of the 25th Reunion Class were recognized as the first registrants for Reunion: reservations by Peter Henriques and Arthur Judge '59 were received at the College March 7.

GREAT PREDATORS, such as these Siberian tigers at the Bronx Zoo, require large populations of prey animals.

S

orne clever person once said that the world is divided into two kinds of people - those who divide the world into two kinds of people and those who don't. You will know which group I belong to if I suggest that the world may be divided into those who care and those who don't. Obviously, Ostrom Enders cares about wildlife and his magnificent and very personal recent gift of ornithological books to the Trinity College Library is based upon the perception that, ultimately, caring is founded upon understanding. But understanding is not always mutual. One of the favorite stories of the great ornithologist, Sir Peter Scott, is about understanding. It concerns a palaeontologist who had paved his patio with casts of dinosaur footprints. One day, as he showed-off the patio to a visiting garden club, identifying each of the footprints - brontosaurus, stegosaurus, triceratops, and so forth - one lady hung back from the rest, clearly troubled. Finally, she said to her host, "What surprises me ' is that they would come so close to the house." With this for an introduction, I want to tell you of

the lengths some people are going to in order to preserve animals in extreme danger of extinction. The story is heartening, yet basically sad. It requires understanding. It is about a new kind of conservation and is based upon the special interest of Mr. Enders in wildlife propagation. · If you have never danced with a crane, shuffled with a tiger or helped a condor out of its egg shell, you may have an idealized view of wild creatures and wilderness characterized by untouchable noble beasts - or · · even a d ispassionate one of inexorable statistics and neat mathematical models. However, if you can admit to what Donald Griffin of the Rockefeller University calls, an "evolutionary continuity of mental experience" in all living creatures, and would be willing to take to the water after the fashion of a Konrad Lorenz to help goslings learn to swim, you are predisposed to understand what follows. At present rates of human exploitation, most of the Earth's major ecosystems will be fragmented during the next twenty-five years. Much of its most beautiful and inspiring wildlife will be lost, to say nothing of its resilience against further .-,llllllll-.


damage. This certainty is beginning to stimu late an extraordinarily diverse, often bizarre, effort to preserve vanishing animals through intensive manipulation of their behavior, even their ecology, by captive propagation. Such programs are not treating with the ultimate causation of wildlife endangerment; they are dealing with the symptoms - the loss of a species. Yet the act of preserving a species can be a powerful strategy in moving a particular populace to reconsider environmental destruction. And it would be helpful to have some wild animals still if some of the ultimate problems are solved. "Nature should be allowed to take its course," cry many who decry the care of wildlife through management or captive propagation. Few debate this view where natural and complete ecosystems remain. Where they do not, other conservationists point out that it is simply unrealistic. Regrettably, such conflicts seriously hinder efforts to propagate vanishing animals and retard other supportive projects essential to their survival. When I observe well-meaning conservationists failing to communicate among themselves about what to do for vanishing species, I am reminded of the unhappy experience of a friend in the back country of Arkansas. Driving on a dangerously muddy one-lane road, he spied a lady motoring toward him and courteously pulled into a ditch to let her pass. As she went by, she rewarded him by shouting, at the top of her lungs, "Pig." Justifiably annoyed, he maneuvered out of the ditch, angri ly roared around the corner ... and hit a pig. Failures in communication are all too common in conservation too. Clearly, only a little of nature has any prospect of remaining undisturbed. A great dying of wild animals and plants is now taking place. They are going extinct as fast as one species each day. Mostly, they are smaller creatures - many not yet known even to scientists. But at least 1,000 species of mammals and birds are also endangered. This sorry situation has been brought on by expanding human populations and consequent habitat destruction, by pollution and poaching, but primarily by alterations of the land at a rate faster than at any time in the recent history of living things. It leaves no time and no space for the slow pace of evolution and replacement by new forms; the basis of the continuation of life. The first task of wildlife conservation is to save

species in their original habitats. Preserving cranes, tigers and condors with artificial help and breeding them in captivity, is only a last resort. But, for more and more wild creatures, adequate habitat is disappearing. Last year, for example, the government of Mauritius invited the New York Zoological Society to participate in a program to save the endangered Mauritius pigeon. Less than a dozen birds remain in nature, they wrote, and the species now survives as a result of a painstaking propagation program. There are no longer adequate forests in nature. They sent us eight birds. On January 26, 1983 the first American pink pigeon pushed out of his shell at the Bronx Zoo's World of Birds. We were also invited to join in a capture and breeding attempt for the Mauritius parakeet, still living in nature but down to four or five birds. The proposed capture was a desperate last gamble which we sadly declined. Big nature reserves and many more of them are needed but even the best seem destined to become islands of wildlife in a sea of humanity. The great predators, chiefly the big cats, pose a special problem. Tigers and leopards do not make good neighbors for human beings and, as top predators, they can only be supported by large populations of prey animals. Thomas Henry Huxley once made the unpersuasive observation that, "a tiger has a natural right to eat a man; but if he may eat one man, he may eat another so that a tiger has a right of property in all men, as potential tiger meat." I worry particularly about the fate of species which have no close relatives, animals greatly different from others - whether they are attractive or not. The giant panda, the Indian gharial, the hairy rhino, are examples. There is no reason to believe that much unmanaged wilderness will remain when the children of this year's graduating class are old. Small parks, where large, prolific animals dwell, will become "mega-zoos" and have to be cared for almost as intensively. Even large reserves will have marginal or unsuccessful populations particular animals.All this means that the survival of some may depend not only upon new understanding but even upon "reseeding" from captive "gene banks." For this reason, government wildlife departments and zoos find themselves

25


26

being called upon to establish captive reservoirs of living species which have lost their homes in nature or which cannot, for the present, be adequately guarded. It is against this background, and the spur applied by man's inevitably tardy conviction that it is much worse to lose the last animal in a population than 'the first, that a series of intensively manipulative captive propagation efforts have been launched to preserve refugees from despoiled habitats. Rather than speak in the abstract, I will tell you several short stories; each with enormous immediacy: As we sit here tonight, on the equator at the Darwin Station in the Galapagos Islands, a scientist feeds hatchling giant tortoises. At the Bronx Zoo in New York, zoologists stand by to aid a pregnant Mongolian wild horse should a delivery be difficult. The species became extinct in nature about 1966. In the Bialowieza Forest in Poland, a truck driver deposits hay for a herd of hulking European bison. The last wild European bison was eaten by Poli~h peasants in 1921. Each of these activities bespeaks a dedication to the continued survival of a wild creature which, because of man, is no longer able to survive without man and each is representative of a growing new concept of responsibility toward wildlife - of care; a new relationship between man and wild animal. Now think about cheetahs. Hardly any cheetahs had been bred in captivity before 1965. But during the past few years, two hundred or more have been reared. The key was found at De Wildt, the cheetah breeding station of the National Zoo of South Africa where the speedy cats have become almost too prolific. Female cheetahs of breeding age need to feel secure, to be housed separately from other females as well as males. And, they prefer not only a choice of male partners but also to choose the time to consort with them - as in the wild. The South Africans solved this problem by covering a hillside, with halfhectare fenced "camps" all inter-connected by a fenced road. Each female cheetah was given her own home, separate from all other cheetahs and out of sight and sound of the males which were housed in groups of six or eight on the other side of the hill. In 1977, Ann van Dyk, the manager of De Wildt, took me along the inter-connecting path which she uses as a service passage to deliver food to her cheetahs. From time to time, she explained, she would ~hoose a group of males and entice them into following her food-laden truck through the passageway. Then, she would watch. The presence of the males usually brought each female to the end of her "camp" closest to Mrs. van Dyk's entourage. The males were usually interested in the females and a receptive female would leave no doubt about her interest in the males. Then comes the tricky part. Mrs. van Dyk has to pick a male - she knows each by sight - and maneuver the rejected suitors away, let the chosen

male into the female's enclosure, and keep watch for a while to be sure that nothing untoward happens. After a two- or three-day honeymoon, the male is moved out. In 1975, only seven cubs were weaned but by 1979, 21 or more were being reared each year. Experience is not enough for Ann van Dyk's task. It takes exquisite sensitivity. Such animal-by-animal understanding is one difference between the close-up caring of the new captive conservation programs and conventional efforts. Ann van Dyk has little patience with the "rather dead than bred" attitude of those who would watch man push a species into extinction rather than sustain it. She states her belief simply, "There is a need not only for people to care but to commit themselves to provide care." A different idea of care for cats was offered in the January LIFE magazine by Mrs. Oramie Lewis of Bedford, Ohio. Mrs. Lewis's domestic cat, Felix, was run over by a car. Felix was freeze-dried on the advice of her veterinarian, Dr. Marshall Pettibone, who said, "There's no sense in getting a new cat every ten years or so when you can have the same one for 50 or 60 years." Mrs. Lew_is reported, "He's just like he was in real life, except he's a little flatter in the middle." If ever an animal needed care, it is the golden lion tamarin, a tiny primate with a shining gilt-colored coat, now restricted to two patches of forest in the low-lying coastal region of Brazil's state of Rio deJa-


neiro. Once, trapping for export was a part of its problem but unchecked habitat destruction seems to have sealed its fate. The tamarin's total population in na74re does not exceed 75. Its only real refuge, a 5,000-hectare reserve, is fragmented by roads and other developments. Now, a dam will flood about 25 percent of it. Even here, poaching is constant and protection ephemeral. A few years ago, the golden tamarin's prospects in captivity were not better than in nature, but that has changed. Today, there are nearly 350 in captivity, almost 90 percent of them in the U.S. and the population is growing nearly 25 percent each year. Now, the stage is set for an attempt at reintroduction into the wild and studies are underway to determine if the location tentatively selected by the Brazilians will be suitable and truly protected. On May 23, 1963, four Arabian oryx were offloaded in New York on their way to the Phoenix Zoo in Arizona. Three of them, "Edith," "Pat," and "Tomatum," were the first critically endangered animals ever deliberately captured and shipped to another country, not for exhibition, but as the nucleus of a breeding herd for the survival of their species. They were accompanied by "Caroline" from the London Zoo and their story is extraordinary. Formerly, the Arabian oryx was plentiful throughout much of the Arabian peninsula. Gradually, however, as firearms became more available, the longhorned antelopes were reduced to a few remnant populations in the south of their range. Then, early in 1961, a motorized party of Arabs from Qatar, 500 miles to the north, killed at least 48, about half of the remaining population. England's Fauna Preservation Society with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature decided to act. However, even as they were preparing an expedition, to be led by Major Ian Grimwood, there was a second raid by hunters said to have killed tQ.e rest of the oryx. Undaunted, Grimwood set off anyway and he did find a few oryx. To the three animals he brought back from his May 1962 expedition, and London's Caroline, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia donated five more from small private collections to form a "World Herd." The progeny of these nine animals, plus a few more which went to the Los Angeles Zoo, raised 36 fawns in 1982 and the captive population was approaching 200. U.S. bred oryx have now been sent to collections in Jordan, Qatar, Morocco, and the Hai Bar Reserve in Israel. Most exciting, is a reintroduction attempt in nature, in Oman. Here, under the constant surveillance of Harasis guards, whose countrymen might have once sought to kill them, Arabian oryx are being carefully reintroduced to their former home. They return not as quarry but as a national treasure. Despite increasing sophistication in animal care, improvements may come too slowly for some rare crea-

tures. If a desperately endangered species is not reproducing fast enough to survive, what can be done? If a particular male or female is unwilling or is unable to breed; if there are too few animals of one family line, or too many of one sex; if there is a fear that the species may lose wild features through generations of captive breeding- is there any hope? Thanks to advances in reproductive science, worked out with domestic animals and man, sometimes the answer is "yes." Artificial insemination is one well-known tool. Sixteen wild mammals ranging from gorilla and giant panda to Speke's gazelle and the Persian leopard have all produced young by artificial insemination. Among birds, a variety of species, from peregrine falcons and whooping cranes to ocellated turkeys have been propagated by "A.I." Fortunately, the sperm of many animals can be frozen and stored for years before use. In domestic cattle breeding, some of the most popular sires have been dead for years, but their sperm is still producing calves. Where sperm can be stored, fhe genes of a rare family line can be preserved without change. In effect, 27

SNOW LEOPARD, shown with cubs at the Bronx Zoo, has been preserved by artificial insemination techniques.


28 NATIONAL BISON HERD was established in 1907 at a site in Oklahoma using stock from a captive herd in the Bronx Zoo. Here, Zoo Director William Hornaday is shown with the first bison to be shipped to the western reserves.

a part of an animal's population might be kept "on ice" rather than taking up limited room in zoos, or even under-sized nature reserves. All the zoos in the world would fit within the borough of Brooklyn. Today, there is an even more exciting reproduction technique now producing spectacular results with some domestic mammals, including man. It is the transfer of whole embryos, not only from one animal to another but even from one species-to another. In 198 1 at the Bronx Zoo, Flossie, a black-and-white holstein dairy cow, gave birth to a gaur, a rare species of huge Asiatic wild cattle. The calf was the result of an embryo transfer from a vanishing species to a domestic surrogate, the first of its kind and completely unrelated to Flossie. The potentials of endangered species embryo transfer and storage by freezing stagger the imagination. Since 1965, cattle breeders have increasingly used embryo transfer to boost production of calves from prized stock. Hormones are administered to a particularly desirable cow to stimulate her to produce more than the usual one egg each estrous cycle. Then the cow is inseminated. In the meantime surrogate cows of lesser genetic value have their cycles synchronized with that of the original female. Next, the fertilized eggs - six to eight day old embryos - are washed from the uterus of the original cow. Usually, because of superovulation caused by

the hormones, there are as many as six. They are separated, evaluated, and finally transferred, one each, into the waiting surrogate mothers. More than 20,000 domestic calves were produced in the United States using this technique last year, none having any relationship to the mothers which bore them. Acceleration of the population growth of a very rare species is one advantage of embryo transfer. The genetic mother of Flossie's calf went on to bear another not long after Flossie gave birth. But the potentials of embryo transfer go further. A special excitement in zoological circles surrounding such transfers lies in the concept of a "frozen zoo." Cattle embryos can be kept frozen, yet viable, for years. Preservation for hundreds of years is conceivable. It may be that a "frozen zoo" could preserve animals genetically unchanged almost indefinitely. For tiny refuge or zoo populations, such a species "bank" would offer a new security from the possibilities of catastrophic disease or accident. But for most mammals, such potentials are far from realization and neither bird embryo transfer nor embryo preservation is yet practical. However, in birds, artificial incubation of eggs and the techniques of inducing birds to lay more eggs than normal is becoming common. The breeding success of Miss MacNasty, an Andean condor which lived at the Bronx Zoo, provides an important example.


At this moment, in Peru, three thousand miles South of us, so high on the wind as to be no more than wheeling specks against the peaks of the Andes, soar three Andean condors, bred in the Bronx. I held each in my hand when ix began life as a fistsized white egg deposited by zoo parents. Each was artificially incubated and reared at the zoo. The Andean condor, like its nearly extinct cousin, the California condor, normally lays but one egg every other year. By removing Miss MacNasty's eggs (she was mated to Angel from the Los Angeles Zoo) as soon as she laid them, we induced her to lay more. This response was a natural one, used to replace broken eggs in nature. Instead of producing only two young in four years, she produced eight. And, some of these youngsters are the wheeling specks now soaring over the Peruvian Andes. The potential for increasing the population of the desperately endangered California condor with the same technique is clear - if it is not too late. Cross-fostering is yet another technique in use with rare birds - and the technique of egg or chick transfer is analogous to embryo transfer in mammals. Captive-bred chicks of bald eagles and peregrine falcons are being placed in the nests of barren eagles and falcons. (These birds are barren as a result of pesticide ingestion in nature.) Scores of peregrine chicks are being successfully fostered by prairie falcons in many parts of the West. Already birds reared this way are breeding in the wild. Often, human foster parents are part of the mix. M y friend, Stanley Temple, won acceptance as a mate by an artificially inseminated, female, golden eagle at a Cornell University laboratory. When Temple 's eagle began incubation of her eggs, he had to leave class regularly, rush across campus to the cage and stand his turn at incubation duty with a hot water bottle. Only upon his appearance would his faithful mate leave her nest to feed and preen. In 1983, the Peregrine Fund, founded by Tom Cade of Cornell University, produced more than 200 young peregrines in its various laboratories and most of these birds were released either through fostering at wild bird nests or by human fostering ("hacking"). Spectacular nestings of previously released birds took place on New York City's Verrazano Narrows and Bronx-Whitestone bridges last summer. Once again, peregrines can be seen on the wing, from California to New York. In any one instance a proposal to reintroduce captive-bred wild creatures to nature, Arabian oryx in Oman or golden lion tamarins in Brazil, may or may not be practical. With the steady diminution of wildlands presently taking place all over the earth, reintroduction opportunities will be rare. Besides, "nature" will no longer be as it was. Vegetation may be altered and predators or prey animals removed. Nevertheless, a captive "gene pool" is the preserva-

tion of an option for the future. Beyond restoration itself, reintroduction may add one more rallying point for those struggling to develop conservation attitudes and preserve habitats in young countries. There is a compelling illustration from the history of my own institution, the New York Zoological Society, with the American bison. It took place at the turn of the century, when the praire bison was at its lowest ebb. The "buffalo" was reduced from 60 million in this country to perhaps 20 animals in Yellowstone National Park and to animals in captive herds at ranches and zoos. Following several years of effort, in Oklahoma and in Washington, D.C. with Congress, the Zoological Society finally received permission to ship bison west from the Bronx Zoo's herd. Their destination was to be the newly created Wichita National Wildlife Preserve in Oklahoma and later Montana and South Dakota, to begin the process of restocking the denuded bison ranges of the West. In the Fall of 1907, Frank Rush, who was to manage the new preserve, came to the Bronx to get the bison. Years later, Mr. Rush's widow related the story of their arrival in Oklahoma. It had been a sensation. Indians flocked to see the buffalo return to their old home. The squaws were dressed in their brightest. Some had been waiting for days in their rickety wooden wagons and with their multi-colored ponies. As the animals arrived, old men peered into the fifteen Bronx Zoo boxes and told excited young boys about the hunting of the bison in their youth. The first national bison herd had been established and the buffalo had returned to at least a portion of the range of the great southern herds. After a fundraising program to support further reintroductions, the Zoo sent bison to other preserves and successfully pressed for more refuges. There still exists in the Zoo's archives a pencilled letter on lined paper in the shaky hand of old age: "Enclosed I send two dollars for the Montana National bison herd. I have seen the great herds with countless thousands of the noble animals in them, and would be sorry to know that a time had come when none were left in the United States. Respectfully, Mrs. U.L. Parker Union, Iowa"

Mrs. Parker's two dollars was well spent, on a new kind of conservation. • Author William Conway is general director of the New York Zoological Society and a pioneer in the specialty of zoo biology .

REVIEW~~~~~~

It was another very successful year on the field and in the arenas of New England for Trinity sports teams. The twenty-six varsity teams posted a 213-124-4 record for a winning percentage of .625. Sorry guys, but once again it was the women who carried most of the load. Nine of the eleven women's teams were winners for an overall mark of95-44-1, a .679 winning percentage. The men had nine winners out of fifteen teams for a 118-80-3 mark, a .587 winning percentage. Women's lacrosse won its second straight NIAC Championship while field hockey reached the finals and soccer reached the semi-finals. The tennis team was second in New England, the squash team was fourth in the nation and the swim team set a Trinity record of 18 wins in a row, going back to 1982-83. For the men, the basketball team won the ECAC Championship after reaching the finals two of the previous three years. The track team was an undefeated 9-0 and won the NESCAC crown. The squash team tied for third in the nation while ice hockey made the play-offs for the first time since 1979. Seven Bantams and Lady Bants were awarded AllAmerican Honors. In football, quarterback Joe Shield and defensive back-kick returner Nick Bordieri were

SUMMER SPORTS CAMPS ~~~ The athletes may be younger, but the spirit is the same in the summer in and around t he Ferris Athletic Center. Two sports camps for area youth made for a constant state of activity as the Bantams of the 1990s learned the basic skills. For the fifteenth consecutive year, inner-city youngsters from underprivileged b ackgrounds came to Trinity for the N ation al Youth Sports Program. T rinity Track Coach Jim Foster ran this federally-funded camp for over 400 participants. The Trinity College Sports C amp hosted over 100 boys and girls in each of three two-week sessions. Camp Director Stan O grodnik , T rinity's men's b asketball coach, ran the operation which is in its sixth year. The camp was visited by N BA star Rick M ahorn of the W ashington Bullets. RICHARD B.

Your SCRIBE was most fortunate to at· tend the Half-Century Reunion 1984. My youngest son, PETER '60, very kindly drove over from Syracuse and escorted me most thoughtfully to and from the meet· ing. Back to New Haven, whole and in one piece, and reasonably sober. A splendid ac· complishment indeed! Sad to say, there were only two 1916ers; namely, SAM BERKMAN and his wife and "DUTCH" SCHMITT, at the dinner. (Sam was one of the founders of the Hartt School of Music of the University of Hartford. He is now dean emeritus in 1·esidence at the Hartt School.) I was told that BOB O'CONNOR was on campus earlier with Mary closely attending him. We were ex· tremely disappointed not to see them at the reception. I did meet his brother, G. WALDRON O'CONNOR '24, who told me about Bob. Prexy Jim English, our Class of 1916 "agent," delivered his usual fine welcom· ing talk after urging us all to strip down to shirtsleeves only. The temperature being 95 or so, by the bar! We were happy to meet with Mrs. English again who ap· peared to enjoy herself, as usual. JERRY HANSEN did a great job too, welcoming the Class of 1934 into the Half· Century Club.

In October, 1983 RON REGNIER celebrated his 50th reunion at Yale Law School - another career of great service. attorney and judge. Recent conversation indicates that Ron still knows the way, not only to the courts of law but also to the gymnasium. This June your SECRETARY and Lucille had their golden wedding anniversary. The occasion was especially graced by the presence of the complete wedding party of 50 years ago; among them J. Ronald Regnier, the then youthful attorney, who ushered guests into the church where it all began.

We have recently seen Florida Golf Week's description of ADAM KNUREK's hobby as a golf scorecard collector. He began with about 300 cards from courses he played or visited. Asking friends for theirs, he also entered an exchange program with other collectors until he acquired 9500 cards from 8200 courses. Looking through Adam's collection has been compared to taking a "journey through golf history." Adam has had to cut down on his collecting and concentrate on his health program. He moved to Indiatlantic, FL to be near Patrick Air Force Base, where he gets air transportation for regular visits to Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi. MS for chemotherapy. Adam says his last reports have been encouraging and we are sure the Class of 1930 is cheering him on as we always did when he carried the ball. Class Agent: J. Ronald Regnier, Esq.

The 50th Reunion of the Class of '34 is now history and was declared a great success despite the heat and the power failure. Twenty-nine out of seventy-one living classmates were able to attend - over 40o/o. Those unable Lo return were sorely missed. Lunch on Thursday led ofi the activities and was followed by a campus tour and a visit to the Trinity Library to see and hear about the outstanding Ostrom Enders ornithological collection. In the late afternoon a Class of '34 Memorial Service was held in the Friendship Chapel in remembrance of our departed classmates. In the evening we were inducted into the Half Century Club at a reception and dinner. Friday was taken up by attendance at various seminars and mini-courses as well as golf and tennis. EDGAR CRAIG and BILL JACKSON won a tennis prize by besting a doubles combination several years their junior! The traditional clambake was held on the Quad on Friday night.

The annual alumni parade on Saturday was led by '34 with BRYANT GREEN acting as the class marshal. We admired the great desire, effort and courage of Eva and BERT HOLLAND to be present. (Ed. Note: The community was saddened by the news of Bert's passing on August 17. An obituary appears in the In Me·rnory section .) '34 had the highest percentage attendance of all the reunion classes and this was re~ognized at the alumni(ae) annual meeting. It was our honor to present to Trinity a class gift of over $100,000 - a new record. We were guests of President and Mrs. English for our class dinner on Saturday night. Several members of the Class brought us up to date on their families, careers and activities. Reminiscences and anecdotes were the order of the evening. The showing of a movie taken by DOUG GAY when we were undergraduates broughL back many fond memories. Many views of campus revealed how much of the appearance had changed, to say nothing of some of our classmates. Phyllis Mason was able to be present at our class dinner and we remembered JOHN, who exemplified the spirit of '34 and Trinity over so many years. Many people took part in making this a memorable reunion - one worthy of the Class of '34. Special thanks go to CHUCK KINGSTON and his '34 reunion committee, to JOHN KELLY, our class fund chairman. to JERRY HANSEN. the Alumni(ae) director, and his staff and to GUS UHLIG who once again provided us with our unique uniforms.

We boys of '39 (still young at heart, though graying and a bit paunchy) invaded the campus on June 7 of '84 to celebrate, commemorate, and contemplate our 45 years since our Commencement. And over the four blistering hot days of memorable festivities, a goodly number of the Class returned with their lovely ladies: JACK WILCOX (Helen), VIC HAMILTON, MIKE BASSFORD (Betsy), and DICK LEGGETT (Ruth) were there; and so were BILL COLE, BILL PICKLES (Dottie), and BOB SCHRECK (Carolyn); along with SHER MARTIN (Gina), LARRY NEWHALL, BOB BUTLER (Bobbie), and HANK HAYDEN (Mary); and of course DICK CLOW, TOM SKELLY (Clare), and BILL YATES; plus GEORGE SMITH, ED SMITH (Mary), FRANK STOCKWELL, MILT BUDIN, GEORGE STARKEY, and your HUMBLE SERVANT with Ruth. Our thanks go out to JERRY HANSEN '51 and Ann Crumb for arranging for us a Reunion Weekend that we shall long remember. The highlights were: the varied and interesting seminars, the golf and tennis matches, the clambake, the dancing and socializing in the College Pub, the convivial receptions, the Class Dinner, and the Sunday morning brunch at the JACK WILCOXes'. At our Class Dinner we were honored by the presence of our special guests, the Ray Oostings and the Wen dell Burgers.

Want to talk about 25th Reunions? Ask any of the 77 participants from the Class of 1959; their wives, guests, and the 28 children who attended ... it was just sensational, thank you! "Why, you haven't changed a bit" was the standard phrase early in the weekend; only to revert to much less polite comment by the time Sunday rolled around ... but we had 25 years of excuses to hide behind. We were "welcomed" by clear but very humid. hot weather but, as Professor John Dando so aptly reminded us at. our Saturday night Reunion Dinner - "the Class of '59 was always in heat!!!" The award to the '59ers traveling the farthest distance went to JERRY OLSON who came all the way from the Seattle, WA area. Other hardy travelers, JACK DONAHUE from California, Miriam and DICK JAFFE (Texas), JAMES BROWN from Colorado, Linda and BUTCH LEIBER (Florida) plus a host of others from the Midwest. The "Smoke Bomb" award went to Ann and DENNY HOAG- their car blew up but they made it on time. Special awards also went to Roz and PETER HENRI(tUES and Janet and ART JUDGE who were the first in our class to mail in their reunion checks and reservations. Particularly memorable was Friday evening's clambake under the tents on the Quad . . . featuring those lobsters and steaks plus the reminiscing that went far into the night. Upon arrival, we were greeted by some of Hartford's finest BRIAN NELSON and BOB BRIAN, Vera and JACK ADAMS, JACK MORESCHI and his menus, BOB COYKENDALL's mini-seminar on municipal bonds, swimming coach GEORGE BACKMAN, Pat and BRENDAN SHEA, from downstate. The Naugatuck Valley group was led by DICK NOLAN and consisted of WALTER MAYO, BOB PINGPANK, JOE WASSONG, and BOB RJDDELL ... all in great spirits, led by MIKE PALMER over from Storrs. Also enjoying the moonlight and camaraderie, .Joan and DICK LOMNITZER, Gerry and BOB PIZZELLA and their children, Pat and BILL ABELES, the CRAIG BROBERGs, Marge and Coach CURT BROWN. Breda and BOB HAR· NISH, Cynthia and MYLES Me· DONOUGH. Again, special thanks to CHARLIE WEEKS for orchestrating the jazz concert (Weeks' Hornblowers) after the clambake. Gathered in front of Nor· tham and Jarvis for the music, DOUG FROST and his daughter, "Tenny," Adrienne and GENE LINDEMANN, Jerry and H. LARRY WEIL. WALT GRAHAM demonstrated his "pipes" haven't rusted as he gave us several up-tempo interpretations with his wife Lorna leading applause, along with MaryLou & BILL LUKENS. Rosi and PETER MeILWAINE, also WARREN FREEMAN ... other toe-tappers included Denny and CHARLIE NICHOLS, Anne and BILL ELWELL and Jean and JERRY MUIR. Saturday was a fun day of seminars, tours, lectures, and some very fierce tennis. Thanks to campus director TOM "Deals" KNORR, our tennis tournament

was played in slow motion. The dynamic styles of FRANK GANAK, along with Kathleen and JOE BIDDLE set the tone for the day; attracting such talent as Sandy and ARNIE ENGLEHART. Sue Campion and YOURS TRULY led the vocal jeers along with Christinia and PAUL KARDON, Linda and SHEP SCHEINBERG (the official mayor of the reunion). Julie and JIM PRICE were in charge of Gatorade. Jim still maintains, even after 25 years, that those tennis courts are the closest he's ever been to the Library! Susan and ALAN MILLER were in charge of the shade, Maureen and JOHN KENNEY, omnipresent ... it didn't work; John fell asleep ... something about the quality of the players! Also joining the cheering section were CHARLIE MURRAY, Elaine and DON KINGMAN and their children, and Joan and IRA ZINNER. Saturday saw many more ''arrivals" who surrounded those sumptuous buffet tables in the air-conditioned comfort of the Cave in Mather Hall. Enjoyed the humor of HERB MOORIN, the genuine delight over the appearance of such notables as Carolyn and BILL SCHREINER, SAM POLK, CHARLIE ARNDT, PETER ONDERDONK, FRED FISHBEIN, JOHN HARTZ, KIT WRIGHT, and PETER DUNNING. Sally and GEORGE GRAHAM were our weekend co-ordinators and their efforts were much appreciated; also great to see Rita and BOB SMITH once again . Carol and THE REV. JON WIDING have just moved to Avon ... every, one particularly enjoyed their son Danny and his magic soccer ball ... also, ANDRE LaROCHELLE, RON REOPEL, who ,·eal~y has not changed ... plus, BOB WERLY. Another enjoyable feature of the weekend - "rooming together" in the coed dorms . .. gave us a lot more time to chat plus becoming a source for some very low humor! Our Reunion Dinner was obviously a special event, with such standouts as. Margaret and ALBIE SMITH, Kathleen and JACK FOSTER; Jack's touching invocation before the dinner was especially memorable ... good to see Judy and RAY LOVEN. Prof. John Dando's witty speech reminded us all too well of our antics of 25 years ago, but did put us in the right frame of mind to enjoy our evening of dancing, plus entertainment by the Trinity Pipes. Seen "shaking up a storm" on the dance floor were Ann and HOWIE LaGARDE, the Lindy demonstration by Mary and PAUL GOODMAN, Melinda and JOHN HUNTER (the Blackbottom), Christine and MIKE REWA (the Delaware DropKick), Karma and BILL CROWELL (St. Louis Fox 'l'rot) ... all in all, a wonderful reunion!! The results of our class elections and the reunion committee for 1989: presidentGeorge Graham, vice president-James Price, treasurer-Shep Scheinberg, secretary-Paul Campion. If anyone in the Class has any difficulty identifying certain faces in our Reunion Class picture that accompanies this article, please feel free to call me collect (212) 688-8000 ... would love to chat with you. (What do you mean, we don't look the same??) Would like to personally thank those classmates for their many hours of work on the telephones and for your kind letters of appreciation but the "thanks" really go to the efforts of the College. A note of interest for those '59ers who couldn't be with us due to outside conflicts, there is already in existence a "groundswell of enthusiasm" for a mini-reunion this fall at Homecoming time ... again, contact me if you are interested. I already have commitments from 19 classmates but would need a definitive number if I were to work with the Alumni office to arrange for a Class party room. Let me know! News from DON FARMER indicates that he has been appointed academic dean

Also on the move is TOM CROWELL, now joining many other Trin grads at DRI (you should know by now what that stands for) in Lexington, MA. A couple of diligent students continue to check in. HENRY DePHILLIPS reports, "I'm halfway through medical school and still going strong!" JIM DOD is undoubtedly in the same position in psychology at University of Illinois where he is also a T.A. DENNIS GILLOOLY and TOM

HEFFERON gladly observe that they survived the first year of law school, at UConn and Chicago, respectively. Also in law school. but a year ahead, STEVE GROSSMAN manages to hold down the position of news editor for the New York Law School Reporter, in addition to studying. STEVE ELMENDORF will join Mandale's Michigan campaign as deputy state director. He has been a member of Moodale's staff since July of 1983. He returns to Michigan where he was deputy field director during the caucuses. Since then he has worked in Wisconsin, North Carolina and ~ew Jersey as a member of the national field staff. He also worked in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco as a delegate coordinator for several states after the primary season. Backtracking in the alphabet, LISA DONAHUE is still in the Big Apple, with Manufacturers Hanover, as a territory assistant. SARAH GLYNN is also in management. but of a different sort- she's been managing the Hartford Civic Center skyboxes for the Hartford Whalers for a year now! EMILIE KAULBACH is learning the ropes as a management trainee at Manufacturers Hanover in New York City, at the same office as LISA DONAHUE. Emilie's roommates are SHERRY BENZEL (see above) and MARGOT TAMONEY (don't see below). JULIE GRIFFIN reports from out here in the Second City where she is an auditor with Touche, Ross. BILL LINDQUIST is also out this way, where he finishes up at the University of Michigan. Hopefully, by the time this reaches everyone, he'll be in North Carolina as a marketing assistant for R.J. Reynolds. That brings me back to the alphabet- BRITTA KEEHN has transferred to the New York regional office of Continental Bank (from Illinois) and ROB LEAVITT is now in his third year (he forgets to remind me where but I think I remember it to be Columbia - sorry Rob if that's not right!). CHRISSY MASTERS is as dependable as always with lots of news from Philadelphia. Chrissy is still at First Pennsylvania Bank, now going through rotational tours in other departments including cash management and international administration. She also notes other Trin alums at First Pennsylvania - LINDA JOHNSON '83 and DON ATKINS. ln Texas, as always, KEITH "TEX" McATEER is at Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. By the time everyone gets this he'll be married, as well - to Sheila Davidson '86 on October 24. Also on the other side of the world (!) ANNE MICRA UD is a Peace Corps volunteer in Togo, West A.frica. And, as expected, ERIC MENDOZA-WOODS has finally gone into orbit. Eric's three latest stories are that BILL TALBOT, PAUL SCOLA and he have bought a yarn shop and specialize in macrame, that they have started a Cowsills fan club (and are looking for members) and that he has married Melinda Mendoza. At least two of those stories are definitely far out ... Back to earth and the P's. ARMANDO PAOLINO has left his research job at the State Capitol and is now director of field operations for the Towland for Congress campaign in the Waterbury area. Also in transition, KAREN PETERSEN has left Saint Lawrence College to become director of the annual fund of Trinity College in Burlington, VT. Congrats to Karen, as well! PHIL PROPPER, excuse me, Second Lieutenant Phil Propper, is now in training at George Air J<'orce Base in California for F-4 fighters. That's pretty hard to argue with, Phil. To round out the P's, STEPHANIE PAPPAS is an immunochemistry sales specialist in Detroit for American Hospital Supply Corporation. CAROL RUMERY contributes some news - she got engaged in June and also is earning her M.B.A. at Temple University in Philadelphia. She still holds her job at Mellon Bank. The S's make the most

impressive showing this time out and win the gold star. SEIF SAGHRI lives in New York and works for Galahad Enterprises. STORY SAVAGE is also in New York, where she is a statistical assistant and is earning her C.P.C.U. (an insurance degree, didn't you Hartford folks know that??). The rest of the S's are spread throughout the East Coast. CONNIE SMITH is in the audit department of First National Bank of Boston and lives just down the street from Fenway Park. SANDY SMITH is in Pennsylvania getting both her law and M.B.A. degrees at Villanova. On the more exotic side, SCOTT SULLIVAN is an account executive in Miami and ANDY STEPHENSON is working as a biologist and mate on the Geronimo, a 54 foot ketch. for the summer. Sounds like we all may be in the wrong line of work. "TODD VAN AMBURGH is directing his own adaptation of Bertolt Brecht's gangster parable Arturo Vi at St. Paul's School." (He is also, obviously, trying his band at writing Class Notes for his favorite '82er!) It sounds like RUSS WILLNER is too busy to even write his own Class Note- he just received his M.S. in electrical engineering, wrote a thesis on laser induced diffusion (got that?) and has had several journal articles published. He's now with RCA in Lancaster, P A. PARSONS WITBECK sounds busy, too. She's still at the development office at Harvard (a small college in Cambridge, MA), is living in Newton Corner and "loves suburbia." Finally, the two best bits of news. TONY PACE and ANITA PACE '83 have be路 come house parents for A Better Chance, an organization helping gifted minority students prepare for college. Tony has also been an admissions counselor at Trinity. The Paces, and the program, received a welcome and very flattering write-up in the Hartford Coumnt on May 29. On the other hand, "Senator" BILL HOLDEN and JIM 'PHELPS took the time to report to TC that they had "no new news," were still living at the same address and still had the same job. Great to hear from you both anyway! And that's all for now. I'll expect to hear from everyone before the next issue. By the time you get this we'll be half of the way to our 5 year Reunion, so check in when you get a chance. Meanwhile, have a great time. Class Agents: Patricia Hooper Steven Elmendorf

Well, here we are again. I just received the most recent Trinity Reporter and as I simmer at my typewriter in the midst of August humidity, I long for a cool May Day on the Quad. How 'bout that Medieval revelry? While we either watched or read about the undergrads dancing around the maypole, it seems that most of us have been slogging it out behind a desk. In Connecticut: ANDY AIKEN is a field engineer with Bartlett, Brainard, Eacott, Inc. in Bloomfield. LAURA JOHNSTON ARLING lives in Bristol, works for The Travelers Insurance Company, and attends the Hartford Graduate Center. JANET BOLLINGER now has what she calls "a real job" with Greenwich Research Associates. CAROLINE EVANS is an assistant teacher at the Institute of Living.

According to Jamie Kapteyn, "we all get a lot of sleep and never go out." Sounds like a lot of fun . TODD BEAT! writes that "KEVIN O'CALLAGHAN, ANDER WENSBERG, and I will be expecting a guest ... MIKE BRIGHAM is joining us as the fourth member of the Trinity Suite. I don't think New York will ever be the same." Yes, you're probably right. I met ROBIN FINS at St. Patrick's one Sunday when we heard Floyd Higgins '85 give a concert.

Both work for Proctor and Gamble. Pete has just been transferred to Sydney, Australia "where he'll finally be able to continue his lacrosse career."

office furniture firm in downtown Boston. CARMEALETTE SMITH wrote that her first child was expected on May 15. So, that's all the news, folks.

After having seen DOM RAPINI putting the shot on a Toyota commercial recently, I know we all have to be somewhere. Please write soon with good news. Take care. Class Agents: Anne N.

Welcome to the wonderful world of alumni-ism (whatever that is). The only thing I've figured out so far is that we don't have to worry about sitting in I -84 traffic jams on the way back to school and most of us won't be writing "student" on the dotted line of any form asking about "employment." I envy any of you who can still do that. As this is the first "column" for the Class of '84, I don't have a lot to "report." In the future, please be sure to fill out the cards sent to you by the Alumni Office. Your classmates want to know what you're doing. Also, feel free to write or call me directly or in care of the Alumni Office at dear old Trin. To begin ... JACK GIBBONS, JON DILUZIO, and Tilvi NASH spent some time in Europe after graduation. Our friends, allies, and fellow world inhabitants haven't been the same since. If my information is correct, Jack will be settling down to work for Pratt & Whitney, Jon for IBM, and Tim for Data Resources, Inc. AMY SNYDER (who travelled in Europe with LIZ LYNCH) is in law school in Boston. PETER MARCELLO, who spent the summer doing research in a lab (how mysterious!), is in Boston, as well, beginning med school. ERIC LINSLEY has settled in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn and is working for Arthur Andersen. His Brooklyn neighbor is NANCY KATZ, who spends her time working for Ted Bates Advertising and helping her friends retain sanity, in some form or another, and find apartments. LINDA KAPNEK. MICHELE ROSNER, and LORRAINE SAUNDERS are sharing quarters in New York. Linda is busy working for National Westminster Bank, Lorraine is at Metropolit3ÂĽ' Life, and Michele is at Citibank, patiently awaiting the fall when it won't matter if the air conditioning isn't on or doesn't work. ED McGEHEE offered me a piece ofthe rock so I would assume that means he's busy at Prudential or he's taken up rock climbing. CHIP FARNHAM stopped by a few weeks ago and tried to sell me something that one puts on one's sailboat. Sorry, Chip, but I still don't understand. Anyone desiring info should wait till the next issue of the RepoTter - by then I hope I'll have it straightened out. MIKE HAVARD played some tennis this summer and began the Banker's Trust training program in September. KATIE FINCK began work at Manufacturer's Hanover at the same time. , WEEZJE KERR and LANEY LYNCH are enjoying making decisions about what's next. Running out of gas in Texas and getting shoes chewed up didn't concern them too much . BRYAN CHEGWIDDEN began law school at Yale this fall. I thoroughly enjoyed having Chegs wait on me one night

at Blessings in New Haven- I'd waited for that moment for a long time ... JOE ADLER has gone to Japan to teach English. MATT GOLDING is working in Boston. He hung up on me once this summer and I haven't heard from him since . MARTHA BELCHER was last heard from as she headed in the direction of Nantucket after finishing a summer internship with Citibank in New York. KIRSTEN HERTZ will be attending law school at the University of Buffalo. I tried to sell my van to BRIAN DRISCOLL who's enjoying the corporate life at Aetna. He didn't seem interested. MIKE SCHWEIGHOFFER hasn't been heard from since he began his job at Connecticut Bank and Trust. He and Brian were trying to figure out how they'd be able to work and play golf at the same time. Please write if you think of it. I'll be looking forward to hearing from you. If you're in New York and you see a familiar face selling hot dogs in the fall and hot chestnuts in the winter, be kind- it's probably me ... Enjoy your new adventures, Class of '84.
