FROM THE PRESIDENT

S

ometimes alumni ask me whether Trinity students take full advantage 路o f all the College offers. Rather than give a general response, I would like to tell you in this report about two students whom I have known well in their years at Trinity, Josh Lahey and Nicole Simpson. By the time you receive this issue of the Reporter, both will be off-campus on academic adventures of their own design. Josh is gearing up to hike the Appalachian Trail from south to north; he will write the experience up as a psychological study of hikers on the trail and what motivates them to undertake the challenge. Nicole is in London, at King's College, comparing the health care policies of the United Kingdom with those of the United States. She will apply to medical school next fall. Each of these students illustrates what we are aiming for in the liberal arts curriculum at Trinity. In our mission statement we describe TrinitY as "a community united in a quest for excellence in liberal arts education." Our paramount purpose is to foster critical thinking, free the mind of parochialism and prejudice, and prepare students to lead examined lives that are personally satisfYing, civically responsible, and socially useful.

Josh Lahey came to Trinity from a small town. He had a tough time deciding-between Trinity and West Point: he felt that he would like to be a national leader and that the Army was the most obvious place for -him to learn and lead. I got to know him well in my freshman seminar called "Socrates Citizen." As one of my student advisees, Josh, along with the others, wrote weekly interpretations of our readings and discussions. His

writings were passionate and ambitious; I remember that I sometimes pressed him to make his prose sparer and more exact. During that year he followed the conflict in the Middle East-and particularly in Kuwait and Iraq-with fascination and concern. Josh's grandparents came to the United States from Lebanon. His involvement in student government was more and more intense; he was elected president of the freshman class (and has been elected class president every year since). When we began the strategic planning process, Josh joined the committee on Fraternities and Sororities. He was an ideal student appointment because he represents the balance of realism and idealism that characterizes Trinity's best traditions. He was a strong voice for a number of the initiatives that we are now implementing, particularly the re-emphasis on student governance in our residential life, the efforts to bring faculty and students together in the dorms, the dining halls, and the student social organizations, including the fraternities. An eager, inquiring student, Josh found during his sophomore year that he would need to fashion his own major in order to bring together the disciplines-history, politics, religion, languages-that would allow him to make sense of the Middle East. With the help of Dean Spencer and Professor Kiener he was able to design a course of study that allowed a full play to his own curiosity and yet at the same time gave him the guidance to set high standards in disciplinary and interdisciplinary work. Josh tells me that: Education should never be limited to political science or economics or any one field . You need to broaden your horizons. The liberal arts is the sort of education where you continue to grow-it provides a constant education. Nicole is an immigrant to the United States, fromJamaica. Her family came to Hartford in the long, proud tradition ofWest Indian settlement and success in this state and city. Even as a freshman, she knew that science was her great scholarly passion. She was not here long before she knew she would major in chemistry. She enrolled in Professor Craine's Introduction to Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. "It was as a result of these classes," said Nicole, "that I made the decision to pursue medicine as a career." Her success there led her to venture out into other fields of science-and of the liberal arts as a whole. Thus she has taken courses in Critical Reading with Professor Rafferty, Psychology with Professor Hall and Dean Woldu's Music ofBlack American Women. 011tside the classroom, Nicole's commitments have been as numerous as Josh's. Her focus, however, is quite different: Nicole sees her knowledge of science as an instrument to help those who live in poverty. She worked for a number of years in the Adventures in the City summer program. There she tutored young students who, with a little help, will fol-

low in her footsteps to Trinity and other selective colleges. She has also participated in Trinity's Upward Bound program, one of the oldest and best in the country. In the program she. worked as a tutor with a Bulkeley High School student, helping him to enrich his math skills. In addition, Nicole participated in a 10-week biomedical summer research program at Yale. She was one of 19 students selected from a national pool of applicants. During the program she conducted research in otolaryngology. Nicole wants to be an obstetrician and gynecologist, working with disadvantaged young mothers whose children are often brought into the world with little or no prenatal care. She wants "to be there to guide mothers," she says. "Bringing children into the world is half the battle." Nicole knows from her work with children in Hartford that no one approach can resolve the dilemmas of America's inner cities. But she feels that the liberal arts education she will complete at Trinity gives her a sensitivity to and sophistication about the challenges we face as a nation. These are two students out of nearly 2,000 at Trinity. The hallmarks of our teaching and learning at the College are those that we have emphasized in our strategic planning and in all of our work: the closeness and collaboration of students and faculty in and out of class; the love oflearning and the liberal arts; the commitment to experiences-in the city especially- that test and temper ideas; the balance ofbreadth and depth, initiative and guidance, rigor and imagination. In athletics, in the arts, in the social sciences, the humanities and the sciences-Trinity students quite characteristically throw themselves into their work, in and out of the curriculum, and pursue it w ith ambition, joy, and realism. In this issue of the R eporter you will read reports that speak to the hours and hours of work that students, faculty , and staff have put into the implementation of our Strategic Plan. All of us-and perhaps especially our graduates-will need to work hard to make this vision of Trinity come true. For myself, however, I want to underscore the continuity in what we do : students like Nicole and Josh make these efforts and expenditures worthwhile. They come to Trinity for its teaching tradition, for its engagement with the world, and for the balance it strikes between curricular and extracurricular opportunities. Some 16- or 17- year old may ask you in the months ahead, "Why Trinity?" These young people may not be interested in our fiscal discipline or the details of our curriculum. T ell them, rather, about Josh and Nicole, and about the ways in which Trinity and its' teachers help our students to grow into maturity in the liberal arts. For these great traditions of inquiry and discussion will be more essential than ever as those who study here seek to make sense of their lives and their world. -Tom Gerety, December 199 3

FROM THE DEAN OF THE FACULTY

trategic planning is the principal theme of my report for 1992-93, as it was the year before. This year, however, our focus shifted from the Strategic Plan itself to the implementation of the Plan. Once the Plan, reviewed and revised, was formally adopted, and the outlines for the C apital Campaign adopted, a number of standing committees, ad hoc committees, and task forces turned their attention to specific ways in which the challenges and ideals in the Plan would be realized in specific actions and programs. In March, five task forces were created and each was assigned a fairly large number of initiatives from the Strategic Plan. Their task was to come up with specific measures, timetables, and budgets for each of these initiatives, and they were asked to do this within a few weeks. The reports that followed all - to one degree or another- included proposals with major implications for the faculty. In some cases, new courses and indeed new curricula were called for. In other instances, there were new plans for faculty interaction with students outside the classroom and for faculty leadership in developing new ways of working with the city. It was not until the summer that the President and I met with the leaders of each of the task forces. In a series of intensive meetings we worked through each of the task force reports in an effort to discriminate among those initiatives that could be easily and inexpensively set underway immediately, those that needed further refinement but that could be undertaken without extraordinary additional budgeting, and those whose realization would have to wait until the Capital Campaign began to bring in new funds . Once those meetings were concluded, it was possible for my office to begin to shape plans for the coming year, plans that would lead to the real fulfillment of some of the primary elements of the Strategic Plan . While elements ofTrinity's academic life run through the entire Plan, touching on teaching and curriculum and research, there are three particularly large and overriding areas of academic significance: the First Year, the urban initiative, and the continuing and enhanced support of faculty initiatives in teaching and collaborative study. Plans for the First Year, or "Year One" as it is called in the Strategic Plan, are complex and ambitious. The task force that worked on the First Year has proposed an extension of the Freshman Seminar into the second semester. During the summer members of the Curriculum Committee and the General Education Council refined that proposal for presentation to both committees this fall. Dean David Winer and I have now appointed a committee , chaired by Deans Mary Thomas and Jack Waggett to work through the administrative details associated with the residential, social, and city-directed elements of the First Year. As I have said, this is an ambitious undertaking but m any of us see the First Year as the cornerstone of the academic-intellectual aspects of the Strategic Plan. The urban initiative is, in fact, a set of initiatives, beginning with a Hartford experience for students in the First Year. We also plan an urban program, modeled on Guided Studies and the Interdisciplinary Science Program (ISP); this will be an interdisciplinary program for a small group of entering freshmen. This coming summer a group of faculty will work together to devise the curriculum and we anticipate offering this program to freshmen entering

Trinity in the fall of 1995. Additionally, we will be planning for a cities concentration, again an interdisciplinary set of courses, available to students in a variety of majors. We also expect to bring a more urban focus to a significant number of courses currently being taught, and we are planning to bring Hartford area "experts" in government, law, the arts, etc., into our classrooms. As a capstone, we are developing ideas for a major annual symposium on a city-related路 issue, a symposium that will bring major figures to our campus. One effect of the Strategic Plan has been to encourage considerable discussion among the faculty. Nowhere has this discussion been more energetic than in relation to the proposed teaching initiatives in the Plan. A result of these discussions has been the renewal of an earlier plan requesting support for collaborative study. In our discussions this summer, the President and I determined that these apparently divergent interests were, in fact, entirely compatible, and that both of them addressed the same crucial issue: the development of a faculty whose "grassroots" initiatives in teaching and research must be nurtured and supported. In other words, we are looking at faculty enrichment in the largest sense. I will be chairing a committee this fall that will propose guidelines for faculty proposals to establish short-term working groups, whether for teaching improvement or collaborative study. The Capital Campaign will seek money to create an endowment to support such efforts, but for the short run the College will provide funding so that the first proposals can be reviewed in the spring of 1994 for funding in 1994-95. During the past year, there has been considerable interest in the planning for "bricks-and-mortar" enhancements in the Library and in the buildings that house the Arts. In both cases, architectural changes, whether new structures or additions to older buildings, will be part of the face-lift of the Mather quadrangle. And in both cases, additional space will mean improved programs for Trinity students, ranging from sophisticated electronic retrieval systems in the Library. to increased rehearsal and performance spaces in Theater and Dance and Music, to improved and enlarged studio spaces in Studio Arts. At the opening Faculty Meeting of the year, I announced that this, my seventh year as Dean of the Faculty, would be my last. My years in this position have been richly challenging and rewarding; now, however, I look forward to turning my attention and energies full-time to teaching and research. -Jan K. Cohn

In and out of the classroom, the city enriches the curriculum

A

t some colleges, students study urban architecture through slides projected on a classroom wall. Or, they read about poverty and illiteracy in textbooks. But at Trinity, the curriculum increasingly reflects the view that the liberal arts can be richly explored in an urban environment such as Hartford. In a variety of disciplines and programs, students have opportunities for firsthand educational experiences in the city. For example, in 1992-93, 262 students completed internships for academic credit in the Hartford metropoli:tan region. "The internship program is a wonderful resource for students who wish to enhance their liberal arts education by becoming involved in another kind of learning - learning through experience, learning by working at different kinds of agencies, and by getting involved in different kinds of activities and organizations," said Anne Lundberg Utz, coordinator of the internship program. Last summer, about eight faculty members, with assistance from Michael Kurdziel '94, a philosophy major from Holyoke, Mass., found ways to incorporate an element of either community service or urban studies into specific courses. In President Tom Gerety's freshman seminar on the The City and Its Citizens, students from major cities, suburbs and rural towns come together to study the past, present and future of American cities. Part of the course is traditional in format: students have required reading, writing assignments and classroom debates. But, their course work takes them beyond the campus, too. For instance, the seminar students have traveled to Norwalk, Conn. to discuss that city's redevelopment initiatives with key officials. The freshmen in Gerety's seminar also have volunteered as teaching assistants at nearby Maria Sanchez School. "It's been

sad, but amazing to see the stories of poverty that we've read about come alive through the children I've been tutoring. The piles of statistics we've examined have a new life and meaning now that they can be applied to real people that I've gotten to know well," wrote Mary Davis '97 ofBellevue, Wash. , in an essay for the seminar. Another student, Matthew A. Casillas '97 ofSanta Ana, Calif., described how meaningful it was to work with the elementary school students on their computer skills and to see the smiles on the children's faces. "Little did I know (at first) that my experience would be more than volunteer work, but an inspiration for something I would like to do for the rest of my life," Casillas wrote. In other courses, faculty and students collaborate on original research that draws upon the resources of Hartford and other urban areas. In an oral history project directed last spring by Associate Professor of History Michael Lestz '68, Trinity students interviewed non-reading adults from the Bob Steele Reading Center in Hartford and created "living documents" that tell the life stories of these individuals. "It's collaborative," Lestz said. "It's like a duet between the historian and the person telling the story." The powerful narratives that resulted highlight the eti-

ology of illiteracy, the life experiences of the illiterate, the patterns of oral culture within the community and the effects of literacy education. Lestz explained that the oral history project was designed to serve as a model for future collaborations between institutions of higher education and literacy providers. "We moved from thinking of the oral history projects as a database to thinking of them as a source of literature," he said. "The vivid texts that emerged are not simply a touchstone. They also show that non-readers can 'make' history; they can build sustained narratives, structured in creative ways, that mirror the dilemmas of their world." An interdisciplinary minor, Studies in Progressive American Social Movements, (known as SPASM) integrates the academic study of social movements with hands-on experience in the community. Students take courses on topics such as religion, race and poverty, and also work at internships. SPASM participants focus on learning how to effect social change, not just by helping people, but by working with people, explained Professor of Economics Diane Zannoni, who is the coordinator of the SPASM mmor. Deborah McBride '93, who won a W ai:son Fellowship to work with


women vendors in Central America, was one of the first students to complete the SPASM minor. As an undergraduate, she served as a coordinator of the Praxis community service dormitory and taught English classes for Spanish-speaking food service employees at Trinity. McBride is an excellent example of a Trinity student who successfully combined academic studies with practical experience in the community, Zannoni said. The Hartford Studies Project, which is affiliated with the College's American studies program, is engaged in researching the cultural history of Hartford from 1865 to the present. Project members hope to publish a book of essays and photographs through the Smithsonian Press. The Hartford Studies Project's participants now number about 20 faculty members, undergraduates, graduate students and independent scholars. Through a variety of individual and collaborative projects, they are examining in a multi-cultural way "how Hartford got to where it is now- politically, socially, racially and ethnically," explained Associate Professor of History Susan D. Pennybacker, an urban historian whose research for the Project focused on perceptions of race among blacks and ethnic whites in the city. Pennybacker also has worked as a consultant for Hartford Public Schools which is revising the sixth grade curriculum and will include a unit on the city's history based on findings of the Hartford Studies Project. As part of the Project, Assistant Professor of Sociology Stephen M. Valocchi has directed an oral history project about everyday life in Hartford during the Great Depression. Photographer Nancy Albert '88 has directed the creation of a 1,500-image slide collection drawn from different local historical archives and from a systematic effort to photograph all of Hartford's contemporary neighborhoods. Both undergraduate and graduate level research projects - such as exploring the archives of Hartford Public High School or exploring the architectural history of funeral homes - have provided additional source material for the Hartford Studies Project. Last spring, Assistant Professor of Fine Arts Kathleen Curran and her seminar students became immersed in original research on Josiah Cleaveland Cady, a once well-known 19th century architect who attended Trinity in 1857. The buildings that Cady designed include St. Anthony Hall at Trinity as well as the

"The piles of statistics we've examined have a new life and meaning now that they can be applied to real people that I've gotten to know well." - Mary Davis '97

American Museum of Natural History and the original Metropolitan Opera House. Curran and her students undertook the first-ever, in-depth examination of Cady's impressive architecture library, which he had bequeathed to the College and which is housed in the Watkinson Library. Only two such architecture libraries remain intact in this country, making the Cady collection "important and rare ," according to Curran. In mapping the architect's life and career, class members traveled as far as New York and Washington, D.C. to view his buildings and study his correspondence. Accruing evidence about Cady's life and work in such a hands-on way was challenging for students accustomed to a more theoretical style of research, Curran observed. For their final projects, the art history students wrote research papers, which Curran found helpful in creating an exhibition, "A Forgotten Architect of the

Gilded Age: Josiah Cleaveland Cady's Legacy," which opened at the Watkinson Library in the fall. "It was a lot of work for us all. The students did an incredible job," Curran said. In an earlier course on contemporary architecture and urbanism, Curran assigned students to work in groups and develop proposals for redesigning New Britain Avenue where it borders the campus. She then brought in architects to critique the students' design projects which called for such improvements as a hair salon, a police station and a disco on the well-traveled thoroughfare. In a theater and dance department course, Approaching Education Through Movement, students acquire practical experience teaching creative movement in Hartford public schools. During the past 20 years, the College has built bridges to health-care organizations in Greater Hartford. Primarily through the efforts o(Joseph D. Bronzino, the Vernon D. Roosa Professor of Applied Science, many engineering undergraduates have had the opportunity to work on independent study projects or to serve internships at Hartford Hospital, the University of Connecticut Health Center, St. Francis Hospital, the Institute of Living and Newington Children's Hospital. "As a nutter of fact," Bronzino noted, "we now have more requests for students than we have students."

FROM THE DEAN OF STUDENTS

-' .~

A

t the beginning of last year as the College's Strategic Plan was nearing completion, we wrote about our efforts to meet what we already knew would be one of its most important goals: that students take greater responsibility for their lives at Trinity, in and out of the classroom. We found during the course of the year that this message was growing stronger, for the specific recommendations being made by the various Strategic Plan Implementation Teams were being echoed by the students' own calls for greater self-governance. (To be sure, there are days when the cry for "student empowerment" can be a little frustrating, but by and large we are pleased at the initiative students are taking!) Thus, with a single message coming from both the strategic planners and the students, we in the Dean of Students' Office have embarked upon developing our own strategic plan for the future, which, like the College's, considers separately two periods of student life: the first year and the upperclass years. Both hopeful and fearful of what to expect from the absent "leavening" influence of upperclass students in the dorms, we housed all freshmen together in five dormitories in the 1992-93 academic year. The results were reassuring. Rowdiness did not increase, and we were able to maintain a level of well-attended programming difficult to achieve when the students reach the independence of their sophomore year! These programs were dedicated to the issues which confront new students: how to manage their time, how to make use of support systems on campus, how to negotiate their new social lives. Involving faculty more often than before, these programs included a pioneering initiative called "Faculty Associates," a group of faculty affiliated with each first-year residence. The Faculty Associates volunteered to help plan events with the students, including a most successful series of all-dorm formal dinners in Hamlin Hall. The new all-freshman residences also provided the opportunity for experimenting with dormitory self-governance by way of Dorm Councils, a small group of students elected both to plan programs and to adjudicate certain disciplinary transgressions in the dorms. We continue this year to concentrate on helping first-year students make successful transitions to college life, and we anticipate that much of what we are doing will fit well into the Strategic Plan's vision of a coherent first year. But, we are by no means neglecting our upperclass students. The "Senior Experience" dormitory will continue to focus on the other crucial transition, to life out of college. Theme dorms in general are flourishing; students can choose to live among social activists (Praxis), healthy eaters (wellness dorm), or musicians (music dorm). Beyond the residences, we have an active Student Activities Office, which last year, for example, sponsored weekly Comedy Nights in the Bistro and organized Friday night trips to the movies or an evening ofbowling and pizza. Our students continued also to participate in record numbers in community outreach programs. And, students organized new groups such as the Elms Community to encourage informal discussions among faculty and students on a wide range of topics. Whether through internships or community service projects, Trinity students have long been able to both benefit by and benefit from Hartford. The Strategic Plan has now asked us to consider how we can forge other ties with the city; some are already underway. As part of New Student Orienta-

tion, first-year students have the opportunity to visit a variety of sites in Hartford, from the Mark Twain House to a home for the aged. The Student Activities' Office offers students tickets to a variety of events downtown, including plays at the Hartford Stage and the Bushnell. To make trips to downtown Hartford or to the mall easier and safer, we have started a regularly scheduled shuttle service. We are well aware in our office that the city is not entirely benign. The on- and off-campus shuttles and the student late-night escorts, the Guardian Bantams, seek to address this concern. In addition, we have almost completed the installation of security screens on the first-floor windows of every dormitory. Security poles with emergency telephones have gone up all over campus. Campus Safety officers regularly speak with students in their residences about security. In general, it is our goal that students feel not only that the College is doing all it can to ensure their well-being, but also that they themselves must tak~ responsibility for acting sensibly and cautiously on this urban campus. Our energies this past year have been directed to many areas, but in all we attempted and accomplished, we were buoyed by the enthusiasm and thoughtfulness of our students. We are pleased that the needs of our students are tru1y at the heart of so many of the proposals coming from two years of strategic planning, and all of us in the Dean of Students' Office are working to ensure that these plans become reality. -

board appears to be reading, but his ears are tuned to the conversation on the nearby telephone. "The dean is AWOL," the unsmiling woman seated behind the desk reports, deadpan. "Yes, he's AWOL. I don't know where he is." She asks the person on the other end of the receiver to help track him down. Within minutes, her phone rings. "Hello, Dean Winer," she says as the afternoon sun begins its descent behind Summit Street. "I have a young man here who needs a signature. I've already spoken with him about waiting until the last minute." She secures permission to sign the form. As soon as she puts pen to paper, the student in front of the bulletin board snatches the document off her desk, sighs "Thank you, Kay," and vanishes down the stairs. "This is the last day of advising week," the woman explains resignedly, a smile tugging at the corners of her mouth. "The deadline for turning in registration forms is today, and we've had a rash of sick grandmothers." The dry wit of administrator Katherina Jalbert is treasured in the Dean of Students' Office, where problems and concerns flow through the door every hour of the day. On average, Dean David Winer, Senior Associate Dean Mary D. Thomas, and Associate Dean Kirk W. Peters have 4,500 meetings with students annually. Winer, who has been the Dean for 18 years, starts each day with a call to the Campus Safety Office. This day is

no different. "Thankfully," Winer says, "nothing unusual happened overnight." By 8:30a.m., Winer, Thomas, and Peters are discussing a weekend fight between two students. Whenever a serious penalty is under consideration, the three deans meet; and they vigorously debate many questions: Should the student who threw the punch be suspended? If fighting is not grounds for suspension, what breach of conduct is? Is there another punishment that would be in the student's best interest, such as allowing him to continue his courses but preventing him from participating in extracurricular and social activities? How do you balance the roles of educators and disciplinarians? Before the deans finish, several students appear as character witnesses on behalf of the student who is facing the penalty. The deans listen to the student's peers, ask them some questions, and then explain the issues they are considering. The interests of the College, the victim, and the perpetrator are all of concern, Winer explains, but the bottom line is that there must be a punishment. The College cannot allow fighting. The students leave the office, and

the deans make their difficult decision. They agree on who will inform the students of the penalty and who will call their parents . The involvement of parents in the lives of their children adds another dimension to the work of the deans. A parent once told Winer that his job would more appropriately be titled "dean of parents." "In the case of this fight, the two students-and their parents-will probably feel OK," Winer said. "But in a case of date rape, both sides feel as if they've lost." The deans return to their separate duties. It is only 9:15. Winer spends the next few minutes with a sophomore who is having academic difficulties. The student comes in daily to work out a study schedule that will help him structure his time. At 9:25, Winer returns the call of a male junior's stepfather, who is concerned about the student's planned open semester. "One thing most parents are concerned about when a stu-

dent is three-quarters of the way through college and decides to take a semester off is whether or not he or she will come back," Winer tells the parent. "I can tell you, most return to Trinity." Then, as he frequently does, Winer calls upon his personal experiences. "I have two sons who took time off, and both came back," he says, adding that he, too, is a stepparent. "There has to be an understanding between the parents and student. Just because a student is taking time off doesn't mean the student has no responsibilities." At 10 a.m. the three deans gather again. This weekly meeting-unlike a broader one that includes staff from several departments that report to the Dean of Students' Office-gives Winer, Thomas, and Peters a chance to share information and issues. Each of the deans has individual areas of responsibility. In addition to being Dean of Students, Winer oversees the administration of seven offices and is a tenured member of the psychology department. Thomas represents the dean's office on the Faculty Academic Affairs Committee, oversees the planning of new student orientation, participates on the committee designing and implementing the Strategic Plan's Year One Program, heads the faculty committee on student governance, supervises the director of the Women's Center, and teaches Latin. The directors of residential life and student activities report to Peters, who also oversees fraternities and sororities. The deans spend much of their time providing personal counseling and academic support to students, dealing with discipline problems, and meeting about campus-wide issues of importance.

"More than half of the students who come in talk about their family background," says Peters, noting that the number of students who appear in the Dean's office increases as the fall semester wears on and the winter holidays approach. "Family issues are still with them." Students having academic difficulties sometimes come to the office on their own; others are called by the deans after they are identified by their professors. According to Thomas, these students often need assistance in structuring their time or advice on getting extra help. "Traditionally, a dean's office wouldn't do as much academic counseling," she says. "But here, students come to us with questions, and the faculty call us."

At today's meeting, Peters reports on the progress fraternities and sororities are making in complying with the new trustee guidelines. Thomas discusses the development of an honor code and the work of the student judicial com- . mittee. When they finish, Winer dictates a graduate school recommendation to Jalbert, whom he refers to as his "reality guardian." Shorthand is only one of her talents, which include her sixth sense about which students need to see the deans immediately and which can wait until tomorrow, and her adept handling of visa problems as official liaison to Trinity's international students. A reporter from Connecticut's CBS Television affiliate, WFSB , arrives at 11. She is doing a story on sexual and racial harassment grievance committees at colleges across the state, and she interviews Winer next to the preponderance of empty cardboard coffee cups on his desk. Before going to lunch, Winer returns the call of the father whose son was punched in the weekend fight. He listens patiently, punctuating the conversation with an occasional comment or question. As he listens, he twists a yellow, plastic-covered paperclip unmercifully, finally tossing it into the wastebasket and picking up a rubber band. ''I'm a stepparent of four children," he says, once again c路alling upon personal experience in relating to the concerned father. "Three of them are in their 30's, but I still remember the teenage years. I don't know which is worse: being dean or being a parent. I think being a parent: At least as dean, sometimes you go home to another set of problems." -Elizabeth A. Natale

FROM THE DEAN OF ADMISSIONS AND FINANCIAL AID

0

ne of the drawbacks to a career in college admissions is the peculiar timetable which tak~s admissions officers away from their college

campuses just as the freshmen whom they have worked for so long to recruit are arriving and settling in. In admissions, the fall means travel, high scho~l

visits, and college fairs, so we never really are able to spend much time with the new students as they begin to become part of the College community. We tend to lose touch with the individuals with whom we have spent so much time during the past 18 months, and it is only in the late fall and early winter, when travel is done for another year, that we reestablish those contacts. Consequently, we rely primarily on faculty colleagues to let us know how the newcomers are faring. One can only imagine, therefore, my excitement at the feedback on the Class of '97 which I received from members of the faculty during the opening weeks of the fall term this year. The heads of the studio arts and musical theater programs went out of their way to let me know how pleased they were at the level of interest and talent in their areas among the freshmen. At the same time, several freshman seminar instructors stopped me on

12

the Long Walk or called to express how pleased they were with the initial efforts of their students. All of the comments seemed to center around the characterization of this class as hard-working, earnest, and involved. Succinctly put, this is the stuff that an admissions dean's dreams are made oÂŁ1 This positive beginning for the Class of 1997 is in contrast to an external environment which remains dif:ficult at best for selective institutions such as Trinity. We continue to bump along at the bottom of the demographic trough, and although the trend line will soon begin to turn upwards and we will see a slowly growing number of high school graduates , the rate of growth will be much less rapid than was the decline of recent years. The continuing economic woes in many of our primary market areas give further cause for concern about reaching enrollment targets. However, Trinity successfully de:fied these gloomy trends during the just completed recruitment year, and indeed experienced an increase of more than 200 applications, or 7.3% over the year before. Applications topped the 3,000 mark for the first time in :five years, making the selection process more complex than ever, a somewhat pleasant dif:ficulty considering the alternatives. The members of the Class of 1997 arrived at Trinity from 35 states, the District of Columbia, and seven foreign countries, bringing with them an enormous variety ofbackgrounds and experiences. Once again, Massachusetts produced the greatest number of new students with 117, followed in order by Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and California. As is always the case, smaller but significant groups of freshmen also came to Trinity from locations across the country, with at least six students coming from the District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Texas. Twenty percent of the new


students chose Trinity as Early Decision candidates, and for the second consecutive year there were slightly more women (243) than men (235) in the freshman class . Also noteworthy is the continuing growth in the number of students indicating a strong initial interest in majoring in mathematics or the natural sciences, with over 29% of the class stating this preference. Twenty-four freshmen are sons or daughters ofTrinity alumni/ ae, and 11 have siblings who have attended the College. Finally, over 14% of the Class of 1997 are students of color, and the more than 500 minority applicants in this year's pool represented the largest such group in College history. It is difficult to pick up a paper these 'days without reading an article about the perceived decline in the basic a~ademic skills of American high school students, but Trinity's freshman class, as always, defies such negative dep~c足 tions. Once again, the academic credentials of our new students are extremely solid, with such quantitative factors as test scores, grade point averages, and class rankings placing them among the very best graduates of our secondary schools. While clearly any group of 478 individuals will demonstrate a range of abilities and talents , the 'admissions committee feels confident that each of the entering students is capable of handling the considerable workload at Trinity and becoming productive, well-educated, David Borus

loyal , and satisfied graduates of the College. This year, Trinity will spend approximately $7.5 million of its own funds to support these incoming students and their upper-class cohorts. Nearly 45% of the entire student body is receiving need-based financial assistance from the College, and given both the costs of private higher education and the state of the economy, it seems likely that this level of demand on institutional budgets will continue for some time. Of course, this crucial support for deserving students would be impossible without the continuing generosity of the College's alumni/ae and friends. Trinity would indeed be forced to become a lesser institution if it were not fortunate enough to have this base of support from which to aid able undergraduates. Once again this year, the College met 100% of the demonstrated need of every admitted applicant, a practice which places us in the company of a small and select group of institutions across the country. I believe that alumni/ ae can feel justifiably proud of this institutional commitment, and of the important role which they play in its continuance from year to year. As of this writing, we are well into the fall term, and I, along with my admissions colleagues, am again "on the road, " meeting and talking with still anoth~r

group of prospective students. And yet, we gain great satisfaction

from all of the signs that point to the quality and ability of the group of478 members of the Class of 1997, back on campus and well into the process of becoming members of the Trinity family.

High expectations +finite resources

the world offinancial aid today

"Well,

14

what do you do all day," asks the next-door neighbor of Anne Zartarian, director of financial aid at Trinity, "sit behind a desk and give out money?" "If only it were that simple," Zartarian says with a smile. The neighbor's image of the job, while inaccurate, is understandable. Misconceptions about financial aid and college costs abound. Institutions of higher learning have been notoriously unsuccessful at educating the public about ongoing efforts to cut costs and improve efficiency, while at the same time assuring quality and access. Some facts which often go unrecognized serve as illustration: *Every student at an independent college or university receives a "tuition subsidy" from gifts to the institution and endowment earnings. This subsidy is about $8480 for each student at Trinity in the current academic year. The tuition fee charged covers only 68% of the actual cost of educating a student at the College. *In 1991-92, independent colleges and universities provided more than $4 billion from their own institutional resources for financial aid. These are more dollars in grant assistance to undergraduates than the federal government gives these students in all

Anne Zartarian

its grant programs combined. At Trinity, the College's contribution for financial aid from all sources has tripled since 1984-85. In 1992-93 total College funds from all sources spent for financial aid were $7,828,000, or 83% of all financial aid received by Trinity students, excluding loans. In 1992-93, of$9,454,000 spent on financial aid, the College contributed $5,710,000, or 60% of the total. *If the state system of higher education were to assume responsibility for educating students now attending independent colleges and universities, the additional burden for taxpayers would exceed $12 billion annually. *Nationally, the average state appropriation per student at a state university is roughly $5,700, regardless of the student's ability to pay. The average amount of state funds spent on a student attending an independent college or university is $600, mostly in the form of financial aid for needy students. *The number of students receiving financial aid at Trinity has risen

sharply. In 1981, 32% ofTrinity students received some form of aid; today, the figure is 45%, ~hich includes loans. The average Trinity family receiving financial aid pays about $8500 while the student is in school, and the student responsibility continues with loan repayments after graduation. "People may not understand the philosophy behind the federal government's helping people pay for college with loans or grants," says Zartarian, a former Classics instructor. "A college-educated person earns approximately a million dollars more over his lifetime and therefore pays comparably higher taxes. And, an educated work force is necessary to keep the economy going. So the government gets a good return for its investment in financial aid. "Nonetheless, the value of the money allocated in the federal programs has gone down over the years, when adjusted for inflation. The Pell Grants, formerly called the Basic Grants, are an entitlement, and consistently run in the red. If you


qualifY for a Pell Grant, the federal government is committed to giving you what you are entitled to. The supplemental grants, which provide additional funds for Pell Grant recipients but are not entitlements, have not kept up with the number of families who qualifY, or with the economy, which has put many families in 'temporary' need. The only area where there's been substantial growth that in any way keeps up with inflation is in the loans available. "That's the federal money. From the state we get a direct grant allocation, based on the number of students enrolled here from Connecticut, and direct state scholarship money from all states which a student can use at any school. Those have really been reduced in the last few years. For example, the maximum Massachusetts grant used to be $2400; this year, it's $700. And the number of students from Massachusetts has not gone down. Maryland decided last year in the middle if the academic year that they were going to cancel their state scholarships to students. Cutbacks in the state economies have really had a big impact on us. "The biggest growth in need has been in what I think of as the upper middle income students. The mean income of families getting financial aid in the freshman class this year is about $50,000. That figure has been increasing because of income creep. And with the current economy, people

have made financial commitments such as large mortgage payments that they can't break when their income goes down. "Typically, in the past when we forecast the need for financial aid, we assumed that family contributions would keep up with inflation. Two years ago we were hit badly when the family contribution actually went down against inflation. So, now in forecasting, we assume no increase in family ability to pay." Families of college-age children find many aspects of financial aid confusing, including the form they must complete with their application for aid. The federal government's "simplification" of the !Jeeds analysis formula a year ago has further muddied the waters. "While the federal government decided at that time to treat student income differently from in the past and exclude home equity as a consideration," Zartarian said, "the institutions themselves have some latitude in the information they require for institutional funds. So, Trinity does ask about home equity, and we do have an expectation that a student will help pay for college from a summer job. Some schools have decided to make these decisions on a student-by-student basis, using the federal methodology numbers when it's to their advantage. This makes it very hard for families to understand aid awards among schools. There is more variation now among schools in terms of disclosure, too, in their explanations to a family about how much they're going to end up paying. Schools are getting away from th,e standardized way when they think there's an advantage to giving a family somewhat less information. Disclosure has become such a problem that the College Board has scheduled a panel discussion on the subject/ "The complexities of the formula

still have families making mistakes and not qualifYing because they didn't do things on time. High school counselors are fewer in number now, and they are responsible for more students, with more different kinds of problems, so they don't always have all the information to pass on to students," she said. The ever-growing mounds of paper generated by these students and their families is processed by an office staff which includes Director Zartarian, an assistant director, a full-time secretary and a "less than half-time" secretary, as well as work-study students who do data entry and file . With two needs analysis formulas for each student, an increased number of applications and increase in the time spent on each student's application, Zartarian estimates that the paperwork is at least twice what it was three years ago. Increases in paper, file folders and file cabinets aren't the biggest problem facing financial aid at Trinity, however. What is a worry to Zartarian and other College officials is how Trinity can continue to meet students' needs 100 percent without drawing so heavily from the College budget. "We're pretty good at patching things together for students," she says. "Students get financial aid only after their families have done everything they can do. Students here borrow money, .work while they're on campus, and, usually there's a substantial family contribution, too. Conversely, everybody gets a discount because of income from the endowment. "This is a shared endeavor. It's not just the College's saying, 'Here,' and handing the education to someone. A family who really wants to send a student here, and a student who really wants to come here have to help themselves first, and then the College does its part. It's not just giving money away; it's putting things together."

FROM THE VICE PRESIDENT FOR FINANCE AND TREASURER

T

he 1990s are proving to be a period of constraint and financial stress for both public and private institutions ofhigher education. At a time when many institutions were experiencing major difficulties, the College concluded its 23rd consecutive year ofbalanced operating budgets. Trinity continues to be very much a "tuition-driven" institution. Approximately 75 percent of our educational and general income resulted from tuition and fee charges. This proportion compares with 69 percent 20 years ago. In support of the 1992-93 operating budget, the College set tuition and fees at $22,990, a total that still fell well short of covering the actual cost of a Trinity education. In effect, each student received a "hidden scholarship" of $7,850 from endowment income, annual giving, and other revenue sources. Budget spending in 1992-93 increased 5.8 percent with total expenditures approximating $60 million. The largest single component of our expense budget remains employee compensation (salary and related benefits). This category increased 3. 9 percent (to $27 million) over the previous year, and was influenced in a positive manner by the cost control initiatives instituted within our health care programs. It is interesting to note that compensation in 1992-93 represents 45 percent of our total expenses, compared with a figure of 52 percent ten years ago. Two reasons for this decline are: (1), the total number of employees at the College has remained essentially constant for the last few years; and (2), salaries and wages, growing at just over the inflation index, have thus been increasing at a rate less than other budget segments. On a consistent basis, financial aid, the second largest component of the budget, is the fastest growing area of the College's operations. This past year alone financial aid increased $1.3 million - a 16 percent increase over the prior year. In the past decade, this line has grown approximately $6.8 million (from $3.0 million to $9.8 million) or 227 percent. Even after adjusting for inflation for that time frame, the increase in total financial aid has been 131 percent in 1982-83 dollars. During these same ten years, total tuition and fees increased approximately 57 percent in constant dollars. The contribution to financial aid from Trinity's own budget sources increased from approximately $1 million in 1982-83 to almost $6 million in 1992-93, or a 500 percent growth in ten years . From a constant dollar perspective, the $1 million of ten years ago becomes $4 million in 1982-83 dollars, still a 300 percent increase. In that same context, the growth in constant dollar funding from all other sources during the ten years has been 73 percent for endowment income, 57 percent for gift income, and 29 percent for federal, state and other areas. Debt service increased $1.0 million (76 percent) in 1992-93 because of the July, 1992, sale ofbonds (highlighted in last year's report) through the Connecticut Health and Education Facilities Authority. Proceeds in the amount of$10.0 million were used for capital improvements and repairs to our physical plant. Related to this was the decrease of$1.0 million (34 percent) in alterations and repairs. Monies were transferred from this category to the debt service line. Utility expenditures increased $200,000 (11 percent) to almost $2.0 million because of increased consumption during last year's harsh weather, and price increases in almost every utility category.


Robert Pedemonti

During fiscal 1992-93, the College's endowment increased in value by . $19.8 million through gifts and investment performance, reaching its highest level ever- $176.6 million at June 30, 1993. The portfolio produced a total return (income plus realized and unrealized appreciation) of 16.0 percent. This compares quite favorably with the returns of 13.6 percent and 13.2 percent for the S&P500 and the Lehmann Brothers Government/Corporate Bond indices, respectively. The continued growth of the endowment is largely attributable to the diversification of the investment portfolio and the fairly strong financial markets during the year. Trinity's combined asset allocation was 50 percent stocks, 34 percent bonds, 4 percent real estate, and 12 percent cash reserves. Under the College's endowment spending policy (five percent of the three-year average market value of the portfolio), $7.4 million of endowment earnings were used to support academic and other operating activities of the College. , At June 30, 1993, the College's physical plant assets consisted of 71 buildings, with 1,523,000 square feet on a 100-acre campus. Book value after depreciation totaled $57,881 ,000; replacement value of the facilities on an insured basis was $208,831,000. With funding from bonds issued in July, 1992 through the State of Connecticut Health and Educational Facilities Authority (CHEFA), the College carried out a vigorous program of capital improvements and rehabilitation. Projects were distributed relatively evenly among the dormitories, academic and service facilities, and physical plant. In the residence halls, the primary work involved High Rise and North Campus where renovations totalled $2 million. Both buildings were refurnished and had new entryways designed. In High Rise, space was created for the College radio station, WR TC, while North Campus saw the addition of a seminar classroom and major exterior construction involving new windows and a brick facade. Substantial upgrading was also achieved in Ogilby, Anadama, and Jarvis dormitories where improvements included the upgrading of bathrooms, replacement of floors and installation of alarms, sprinklers and lighting systems . These three projects were funded with budgetary dollars. On the academic side, the College invested $1.4 million in the Clement Chemistry Building to replace antiquated laboratory fume hoods and ducts with state-of-the-art equipment. Other improvements included renovations

17


of two classrooms and the creation of two offices and a faculty laboratory in the basement. Renovations in the Jacobs Life Sciences Center resulted in two faculty teaching laboratories for the psychology department. New seating and lighting were installed in Boyer Auditorium, along with the latest audiovisual facilities including a permanent, glass, rear-screen projection system. The main level of the Life Sciences Building was also redecorated. In Ferris Athletic Center, the old Trowbridge Pool was converted into a full-scale fitness center and weight room, complete with new entries and access for the disabled. Other changes include expansions of the offices for the women's coaches and of the visiting team locker room. The synthetic floor in Unit D was replaced with an environmentally safe, urethane sports surface, the first such

installation in a higher education facility. A new chiller plant, consisting of twin 500-ton units powered by natural gas engines, has been built adjacent to the heating plant. Interconnected with the aging chillers at the Life Sciences and Austin Arts Centers, the new chiller provides increased capacity and efficiency for the central cooling system. The expanded plant also addresses environmental concerns by using ammonia as the refrigerant. Finally, CHEFA funding will also contribute to the ongoing program of roof replacements and repairs. It is estimated that the College will expend $750,000 for this work over a three-year period. In addition, plans for renovating Mather Hall are now being formulated . This project will be designed jointly by Charney Architects of Hartford, and Hartman-Cox Architects ofWashington, D.C., Trinity's

Despite many pressures before us (i.e., competition for talented students and faculty, escalating costs for financial aid funding and employee health care, changing and new technology, and maintenance of physical plant), we face the future with confidence because our resources are strong. With a new strategic plan in place, supported by a creative faculty, gifted students, and loyal alumni/ ae Trinity is well positioned to excel in this decade and the next century. Our commitment is not only 'to keep Trinity's underlying financial base sound, but also to make the College a stronger and more prominent leader in the national educational community.

From Mom's to Marriott- Dining in Mather lives on

Trinity's exalted mission is to nurture the hearts and minds of its students. But, if the College fails to nourish their bodies, not much mental enrichment can occur. Probably no single factor influences dayto-day morale as much as the dining services. Food service makes up a significant chunk of the College's expendituresalmost $2 million in 1992-93. "It's an important matter for us," said Alan R. Sauer, Trinity's business manager and budget director. "We want to make life at the College as attractive as possible." The daunting task of feeding 1550 resident students falls to Marriott Educational Services, a division of the giant national food and hotel corporation. "The College's business is education. Food service is not our real expertise. We don't know from peeling onions and making soup," Sauer explained. Marriott does indeed know about making soup-it provides all food service and catering at the College. Since 1993 it has also managed the Smith Alumni/Faculty House. Sauer said the College is pleased with the balance of"quality, consistency, fair price and expertise" the company offers. Marriott has also introduced a profusion of choices that would astonish even recent graduates. Where once lines snaked through Mather Hall to reach steam tables offering a total of three choices among entrees, students now traverse the bountiful "Crossroads at Marriott." The renovated area boasts as many as a dozen stations where students assemble their own meals. These include familiar fixtures, such as a salad bar and the "Three Squares" station, which offers traditional entrees. Innovative stations, such as the "Pasta Factory" and the "Wok Bar," where students can select and stir-fry their own dinner, also flourish. The vegetarian and heart-healthy offerings of the "W ellness and You Bar" counterbalance a tempting array at the dessert bar. "At Trinity we are probably at the cutting edge of what's available to colleges," said Vijay J. Sharma, director of the din-

Trinity students choose from an array of entrees at the bountiful "Crossroads at Marriott."

ing service. "Our challenge is to provide food service that students can customize. We want to make sure that if a student wants a grilled hamburger or pasta or a cooked meal like Mom's, then it's ready for them." Dietary information, including calorie counts, is posted daily and the menu also rotates on a 15-day cycle to prevent the "if-it's-Tuesday-night- they-must-have manicotti" syndrome. The emphasis on wide selection and self-service has brought its own surprises-food waste has dropped significantly. Cooks prepare 80 pounds less pasta a day than they did when servers doled out the spaghetti. Marriott's success is evidenced by increasing enrollment in the voluntary board plan. Three years ago, about 1,150 students signed meal contracts. Last fall, more than 1,400 did so , or 90 percent of the students in residence. High enrollment in the meal plans has even caused some overcrowding at peak times-a problem addressed by the offering of still more options. The Mather dining room is now open almost continuously froin 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. For the past two years, students have been able to use their meal tickets to eat at the Cave or at the new Bistro in the Koeppel Student Center on Vernon Street. The Cave specializes in "grab and go" items and grill food. The Bistro offers a quieter, more

sophisticated atmosphere, in an attractive room with a view of the Chapel. Seniors may also eat in Hamlin Hall now. While the food service is generally well regarded, the venerable practice of complaining about college food is still upheld occasionally. One mordant Tripod critic recently described Mather's "Chicken Teriyaki" as "chicken soaked in some sort of nuclear-based barbecue sauce." He turns for relief to the Bistro "where the food, service and atmosphere make the Mather dining area look like the dungeons of the Bastille." Marriott, however, works hard to satisfY. Sharma polls students frequ ently, asking about the menu, cereal selection, frozen yogurt flavors and a galaxy of other items. A recent poll of 1,000 diners produced suggestions that will shape the menu during the spring term. "Our philosophy is: find out what they want and find a way to give it to them," he said. Each month Sharma also hosts a catered dinner so that students can discuss the food service with him . "My premise is that we should delight 路 people with the food service. We're not satisfied w ith simply satisfYing people," he said. "That's a real challenge when you are serving dinner to 1,000 people with 1,000 different tastes, but that's what we want to do. " -A ndrew Walsh '79

FROM THE VICE PRESIDENT

Our focus this past year has been helping our alumni and friends increase their knowledge about, and interest in, Trinity's Strategic Plan; gaining financial support to help implement the plan; and projecting a more clearly defined and more visible identity for the College. We've come a long way!

DEFINING TRINITY'S STRENGTHS Discussions ofTrinity's strategic plan have taken place in homes, clubs and office buildings across the country. This summer we printed the entire plan in the Reporter and have begun a second round of discussions emphasizing our implementation strategies and progress to date. If you haven't attended such a session yet, or had a chance to read the plan and now can't find your copy, give us a call. We'll make sure you have an opportunity to read and discuss Trinity's future. Key to that future is how well we define and project Trinity's special qualities. This year we participated in a trustee-led effort to identifY the College's distinguishing characteristics and to create a marketing plan that will attract the best and brightest faculty and students as well as inspire pride in alumni/ae, resulting in volunteering and giving. The results were both encouraging and inspiring. Trinity belongs •.o a family of small, academically excellent, residential liberal arts colleges that provide a broad education, coupling traditional, rigorous study in the liberal arts with an abundance of social, extracurricular, volunteer, and athletic activities. Our research helped us define what distinguishes us within that group of outstanding institutions. 1. It is an education rich in opportunities to combine "real world" issues and experiences with the more theoretical lessons of the classroom. 2. It is a flexible education that offers a greater number and variety qf learning options than are available at other leading liberal arts colleges . . 3. It is a personalized education that enables students to tailor their learning to their individual interests, needs, and aspirations in an environment of clos'e student-faculty collaboration. You are Trinity's ambassadors. As you discuss Trinity with prospective students, fellow alumni/ ae and parents, neighbors and friends, you need to know why Trinity is special and worth attending, visiting and supporting.

While the College continues to do an outstanding job in reallocating existing funds , making tough monetary decisions and balancing the budget, some of our aspirations for the future require additional funding. We plan in the next year, therefore, to announce a major fund-raising campaign. Meanwhile, we continue to raise money for identified priorities. Last year the Annual Fund set records for dollars and donors, with $2,605,738 received from 8,457 contributors. Overall we raised $5 ,202,213 for College priorities, and we've set an ambitious goal of $2,800,000 for the 1993-94 Annual Fund and $10,600,000 overall- the most Trinity has raised in its history.

Our media efforts have been paying off. Tom Gerety appeared in print in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and The Christian Science Monitor, to name a few publications. His television appearances have also been significant - the CBS Morning Show, 20 minutes on the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour on PBS, and as host of Connecticut Public Television's "Connecticut Town Meeting." Hometown news releases written by students and op-ed page pieces written by our faculty have also been successfully placed. Our new Director of Public Relations, Jane Daly Seaberg, recently joined the Trinity administration, coming to us from Georgetown University. Her fresh ideas and leadership are sure to make a significant impact on all of our publications, media and marketing efforts .

ALUMNI RELATIONS We had a record-breaking Reunion this past June with 1,600 attending, and since just last May over 34 club events were held across the country. Jeff Seibert '79 became the new president of the National Alumni Association, succeeding Bob Kehoe '69. Bob was honored at the awards dinner of the Volunteer Leadership Conference for his outstanding service. Scott Reynolds '63 was awarded the prestigious President's Leadership Medal at the President's Clubs annual dinner dance. Doug Tansill '61, the first winner of this new award for voluntarism and generosity, helped President Gerety make the surprise presentation to Scott.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP! Volunteering and giving continue to be key to Trinity's overall success. Leadership giving and leadership service on advisory committees in career counseling, alumni admissions, development giving programs, and alumni club organizations as well as making campus visits, hosting events in your city, providing internship opportunities for students or day trips to your place of business are examples of the many ways you help to keep Trinity strong. On behalf of the entire College and particularly from those of us who directly depend upon you for good advice and hard work, thanks for a great year. We've accomplished a lot and look forward to working with you in 1994. - Karen E. Osborne

he Board of Fellows, one of the College's oldest and most venerable bodies, has a new mission: to help Trinity tap the talents of more alumni leaders. To make that possible, the Board has been reorganized for the first time since 1837. In its new shape, the Board will be a larger, more flexible body of volunteers mobilized to help the College achieve the goals of its new Strategic Plan. The old Board consisted of 12 Fellows who usually served for six years. The restructured group will be much larger-probably dozens of Fellows will serve in any given year. The Board will now function as an umbrella for a select group of alumni leaders working on tightly focused academic and administrative advisory panels.

The Fellows often served as intermediaries. In 1899, they brokered a resolution to the crisis that followed the suspension of the entire sophomore class for hazing freshmen. Five Board of Fellows committees are already working or are being formed. Two existing groups will now function under the Board's umbrella, including the Alumni Fund Steerin·g Committee and the Public Relations Committee (divided into a subcommittee for the Reporter and a second to advise on external media relations). Groups being formed include: a Planned Giving Advisory Committee, a network of regional Business and Career Advisory Committees to be located in cities around the nation, and an International Committee, which


will help the College to increase international learning opportunities and help recruit students from abroad. Other committees may be established soon. The reorganization of the Board of Fellows, which was approved by the trustees in May of 1993, was prompted by the response of several Fellows to a survey conducted in 1991 by the alumni Volunteer Leadership Task Force. This National Alumni Association task force sought to identify every opportunity available at Trinity for alumni participation and to make sure the experience of volunteering was satisfying, according to Bob Brickley '67, who chaired the group along with William Schweitzer '66. "We think the changes to the Board will provide an opportunity for more

alumni to be involved in the College in ways in which they really have something special to contribute, and ways that will draw on their professional skills," said Carrie Pelzel '74, a trustee and former Fellow. The Board of Fellows' history is long, distinguished, and somewhat quirky. Few, if any, American colleges have comparable bodies, and even at Trinity is hasn't always been clear what the Board was supposed to be doing. Nevertheless, the Fellows have often seized the initiative and played a creative and significant role in College life. When it was founded in 1837, the Board was one of several ultimately unsuccessful attempts to transplant the organizational forms and nomenclature of the Oxford and Cambridge colleges

The old science laboratory in Seabury Hall.

to Hartford. At the ancient English universities college "fellows" often provide instruction. So Trinity's trustees appointed 12 Fellows and assigned to them the "superintendence of the course of study and discipline." The Fellows apparently never assumed this weighty challenge. The Board's mission was revised in 1845, when it was charged to serve as the "College's official examining body." Until the late 1860s, the Board performed this function faithfully, journeying regularly to Hartford to administer final examinations. When the faculty reclaimed its responsibility for evaluating students, the Fellows retained their now rather vague mission to "examine." Subsequently, they often took advantage of this latitude to press Trinity on towards high levels of achievement and service. In the 1880s, for example, when the College was at one of its lowest points, the Fellows independently launched Trinity's first comprehensive fund-raising campaign. Their success provided funds for the construction of the old President's House and several other academic buildings and established new endowments for scholarships and faculty. The Fellows visited campus frequently and established a tradition of monitoring the pulse of campus life. As a result, they often served as intermediaries. In 1899, for example, they brokered a resolution to the crisis that followed the suspension of the entire sophomore class for hazing freshmen. The Fellows steadily pressed the College to grow and to build up its

standing as an outstanding liberal arts institution. In 1968, a proposal from the Board triggered the decision to admit women to the College. Since the 1970s, the Board has dealt most often with student affairs and campus life. It reported, sometimes repeatedly, to the trustees on issues including dormitory life, substance abuse, career counseling, and the experience of minority students on campus. Despite these and many other achievements, in recent years the Board suffered repeatedly from identity crisis. One factor affecting the Board's work was the growing vigor of the Trustee Student Life Committee, which posed the problem of duplication of effort. Perhaps symptomatically, the Fellows reviewed their own mission in 1985 and again in 1991. As a result of the second review, many Fellows asked the College to revise the Board's mission and structure. "The meetings are stimulating and the fellowship is wonderful, but the level of frustration rose as time went on and nothing seemed to change," said Fellow Susan Martin Haberlandt '71. The Fellows' request for a dear mandate made sense to the Volunteer Leadership Task Force. "It's important that volunteers feel that the experience is positive and productive," said Brickley. "Things weren't working out well on the Board of Fellows, but it was obvious to us that it shouldn't be abolished. Basically, it's a good concept." The alumni and administrators who reviewed the Board's historic structure quickly noted that Fellows were appointed to a standing body. Then, each year College officials scrambled to find projects for the Board to address. That seemed backwards. If the College began by identifYing projects and challenges, it could recruit Fellows whose skills and interests matched its needs very closely.

"I think it's important to cast the net as broadly as possible, and to do so in a way that unleashes the potential and talent of those seeking to volunteer," Haberlandt said. A new structure evolved during 1992 and was presented to the trustees early in 1993. Fellows will now be appointed to advise academic departments and administrative groups seeking assistance or solutions for particular problems. The long-standing Engineering Advisory Committee served as a model for the new structure. Trinity's engineering department asks a small group of working experts, especially alumni, to review its curriculum and practices to make sure they are current and relevant. The revised Board of Fellows will give volunteer leaders concrete missions and a title that honors their contributions to Trinity: Fellow of the College. The number of Fellows will vary as the College adds, rearranges, and drops advisory groups to reflect its current needs. Brickley said he hopes the new Board will also provide a stimulating setting for the College's most senior volunteers. "Currently there's a danger that, for example, trustees or members

of the executive committee of the alumni association will simply drift away when they complete their te_rms. Now they will be able to plug into work on the Board of Fellows that interests them." Fellows will be appointed by the President to two-year terms on some groups and to three-year terms on others. Current Fellows will be invited to join an advisory committee. All will remain as Fellows of the College until their original terms expire. All of the Fellows will gather on campus annually for a joint orientation that will provide a larger context for their work. At this meeting they will learn more about the long-term goals of the College and discuss issues with the president, trustees, senior administrators, faculty and students. The new system will be functioning fully next fall . "The key to success is a definite assignment," said President Gerety. "The Board of Fellows will have responsibilities that take them into the life of the College and call on them for _ advice and direction. This is an important renewal of one of our great traditions." -Andrew Walsh '79

Greek organizations make progress toward coeducation F raternities and sororities are "moving ahead" to comply with changes resulting from a September 1992 board of trustees' mandate, according to Associate Dean of Students Kirk W . Peters, the administrator working most closely with these organizations. Following an extensive review of the role of Greek-letter organizations, the board called upon the campus community to bring about the coeducation of fraternities and sororities; the establishment of closer ties between Greek organizations and faculty, administrators, and alumni/ ae; the improvement of the physical condition and appearance of fraternity houses; the strengthening of rules governing the conduct of students during pledge activities and social functions; and the fostering of social alternatives to Greek organizations. A plan to implement the board's directives was developed by a committee chaired by George C. Higgins, Jr., director of the Counseling Center and professor of psychology. The board has required coeducation of fraternities and sororities no later than September 1995. This fall was the first open rush for men and women; and although the desired number of opposite-sex pledges was not met by most of the organizations, its members did attempt to recruit both men and women. "The spirit of coeducation is the most important issue," says Peters, "so we have been supportive of any efforts made by the fraternities to open up their ranks. We realize how difficult

this transition is. Two of the fraternities tried especially hard but were unable to attract any women pledges. The goals now are to get the organizations to see that coeducation is the right thing and to make the fraternities more attractive to women." The details of having the fraternities and sororities both comply with the trustee mandate and retain their ties to their national organizations are still being negotiated. Only one of the single-sex nationals has said that coeducatipn is acceptable, and only one unconditionally forbids it. Other nationals will allow coeducational membership but insist that rituals be separate. At this point, one of the sororities has indicated that it will phase out its chapter by 1995, Peters says. On the

other hand, Sigma Nu, which when reactivated in 1983 was denied recognition by the College because the chapter refused to admit women, has declared itself a coeducational organization. Formerly located on Brownell Street, the chapter moved this semester to a house on Allen Place. Individual members of Greek letter organizations have varying views on the move to coeducation. Some are enthusiastic; others are less eager for change. Within the Psi Upsilon fraternity, for instance, opinions differ. "I would like to keep the fraternity single sex," says Joseph M. Aurilio '94. "The College is eliminating choice. No one has an objection to coeducation, but we should have the right to socialize as we want .~ ' "Most of us agree that the important

thing is to keep the house," says Joseph G. Yannetti '95. "We'd rather go coed than give up the house." Physical inspections of the houses were completed by the College before the end of the fall semester, and the owners were notified of necessary changes. Pi Kappa Alpha was shut down by the City of Hartford, and the College is discussing the possibility of assisting the fraternity with the required improvements. All of the fraternities and sororities have identified a faculty member, administrator, and alumnus/a to serve on their advisory boards. The boards, which include both men and women, held their first formal meeting with Peters and Dean of Students David Winer in December. "These are not watchdog groups," says Peters. "They will provide support, leadership, and ideas." College policy already prohibits hazing, and no midweek pledge activities were allowed this fall; but Peters admits it is hard to monitor all of the Greek organizations' activities. He hopes the advisory boards will ensure that College rules are followed. "Things just won't change overnight," Peters says of the three-year process to toward coeducation of the Greek-letter organizations. "These institutions carry so much tradition. We want to give this a chance to work. "We seek to avoid an adversarial relationship," he says. "We want to be flexible with the first-year timeline but not deviate from the long-range goal." -Elizabeth A. Natale

Administrative appointments J ane Daly Seaberg has been appointed director of public relations at Trinity. She succeeds William L. Churchill, who retired from the post last year. Before coming to the College this fall, Seaberg served as acting associate

Writing Associates program thriving The Writing Associates Program of the Allan K. Smith Writing Center entered its fifth year of operation this fall with a number ofnew practitioners. Since 1989, the program has directed highly talented undergraduate writers, who assist faculty with their efforts in the classroom and help their peers with their writing. According to Beverly Wall, director of the Writing Center, students selected for the program take English 302, Writing Theory and Practice, while serving as apprentice peer tutors in the Writing Center. In subsequent semesters, the Writing Associates affiliate with faculty as teaching assistants and work as tutors in the Writing Center, in special residence hall programs, and in many other contexts. They assist their peers by reviewing early drafts of papers, working regularly with students on their writing in individual conferences or small groups, and making class presentations on topics such as mastering the writing process or constructing a logical argument. Wall notes that 16 Associates graduated in May, but welcomes these undergraduates returning to the program in 1993-94: AlidadArabshahi '94,Jacqueline Barile IDP '94, David Cotta '94, Helen Curtin-Moskey IDP '94, Monica DaSilva

Foundation news

........................ llational foundation grants totaling more than $400,000 have been received by the College recently. A grant of$100,000 from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations in Jacksonville, Fla. will be added to an endowed scholarship fund established by a gift from that Foundation in 1985. A $300,000 grant was given by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation in support of a proposal submitted jointly with Connecticut College and Wesleyan University. The proposal was developed in response to an inter-

est on the part of these institutions in strengthening the area of internation{ll studies on each of the three campuses. In November, the College was notified of a $1 5,000 grant from the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation. This Chemistry Informatics Planning Grant initiative will allow the institutions selected to plan projects that address the challenges fa~ing availability and access, primarily of chemistry journals in science libraries. "The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations seek proposals from institutions with reputations of excellence, and Trinity is proud to be among its grant recipients," said Mary LaPorte, director of corporate and foundation relations. "The need for endowed scholarship support is clearly recognized in Trinity's Strategic Plan, and this grant is the first of what we hope will be many gifts designated for that purpose. "The Hewlett Foundation grant provides funds which enhance Trinity's ability to provide our students with opportunities to study nations, peoples, and cultures representing the diversity of today's world," LaPorte said. Under the terms of the

Hewlett Foundation grant, $75,000 will be used to sponsor two yearlong series of faculty-student seminars that will be jointly planned by Trinity, Connecticut College and Wesleyan University. The remaining $225,000 will be apportioned among the three institutions to underwrite individual initiatives. Trinity is using its portion to appoint visiting scholars from abroad during the current and next academic years. This year's scholar is Hedva Ben Israel, a senior historian from Birzeit University in the West Bank. The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Chemical Informatics Program is designed to encourage creative, innovative approaches to generating, archiving, retrieving, or disseminating chemical information. One of ten grant recipients of the 86 applicants in this one-time initiative, Trinity will use these funds to develop the model for an electronic retrieval system to serve the particular needs of students and faculty working with the literature of chemistry. The grant will be administered by Dr. Stephen Peterson, Trinity Librarian. The only four-year undergraduate liberal arts college among the ten recipients, Trinity will be eligible to participate in the next round of proposals, which could provide up to $75,000 in implementation funding.

Second 'Gathering' is historic

Black alumni start organization, scholarship fund When black alumni came to campus for an autumn weekend, it was not just to greet old College friends and celebrate Black Alumni Gathering II . They came to make history. Together they adopted bylaws to make official the Black Alumni Organization, a part of the National Alumni Association, and they voted into office the individuals who served as acting officers during the past year: AlfonsoL. CarneyJr. '70, Saundra Kee Borges '81, Jack C. Barthwell III '72, Alan K. Martin '78, Michael Pina '92, and Donna L. Williams '75. As president, Carney reported to alumni attending the first meeting of the membership that the Black Alumni Gathering was but one project of the group . He introduced Alan Martin, vice president for student support, who talked about the alumni-student mentor program that he initiated with about two

dozen alumni who were matched with juniors and seniors this fall. Donna Williams, vice president for progra.ms and a co-chair of the Gathering with Archie Colander,Jr. '7 4, told alumni she wanted their support on future events that would feature alumni in student programs, such as Black History Month in February and the upcoming 25th anniversary ofUmoja House. Vice President for Development Support Jack Barthwell announced the Black-American Alumni Scholarship Fund with a current total of$50,000 that would be presented that night to President Tom Gerety. At the dinner, the alumni met the fund 's first scholar, Tanya Danielle Jones '97 of Philadelphia, who told them how much this gift from them meant to her. Students greeted alumni at registration in the Umoja House, where members of

The alumni challenged the students, organized by David Jones '94, to a basketball game, and each side won one game. Students and alumni got to know each other at Friday night's jazz evening at the Bistro, Saturday's football game and at a dance Saturday night following the dinner. Students heard from alumni during a panel discussion about their experiences at Trinity and how they were prepared for their lives after college. The first Black Alumni Gathering was held in 1990, and the College and alumni, decided then to hold the event every three years so that no class would pass through four years at Trinity without I experiencing it. - Eugenie Devine

Homecoming makes memories for thousands

On a bone-chilling, gray day, 80-some young Bantams generated enough heat to warm more than 9.000 fans at Dan Jessee Field and torch some records in the College's book. Coach Don Miller's 1993 squad made news with mile-high scores and amazing plays throughout the season (see Sports, page 48), but then on November 13 gave

heart-warming moments and Homecoming memories to the assembled Trinity alumni, parents, friends and current students. In the process, the team became the first undefeated Bantam football squad since 1955. "It was very appropriate that the 1955 squad had planned a reunion for this game," said jerry Hansen '51, director of alumni and college relations. "They were here to witness this great event. It was especially thrilling for Paul Cataldo '57, a

" Tri-captain Joe Holstead, sidelined after breaking his leg in the Middlebury game, received a salute when the game ball was delivered by a parachutist wearing his uniform . Despite the injury, Holstead played in the Homecoming game against Wesleyan and gained four yards, bringing his rushing total for the year to over 300 yards. The Springfield, Mass. native was "very much an inspirational leader," said Hansen. Several hundred young alumni turned out for pre-game and halftime receptions ' sponsored by the area clubs of Hartford, Boston, Fairfield Country, New York, New Haven and Philadelphia. All alumni were treated to a post-game carillon concert by Daniel K. Kehoe '78 and reception in the Washington Room with entertainment by the T rinity Pipes , the Trinitones, and the Occidentals. - Roberta ]en ekes


Wrap-Up This fall marked a special time for two teams, as both

the football and field hockey teams achieved new heights. For the first time since 1955, the Trinity football team accomplished its goal of an undefeated season, finishing with a record of 8-0. The Bantams dominated the NESCAC all season long, with their closest margin of victory being a 21-7 victory over Williams College. This season marked the first time in his 27 years of coaching at Trinity that Don Miller had gone undefeated. Special congratulations must be given to the eight seniors on the team, who have compiled a 26-5-1 mark over the last four seasons. With their stellar season, many Bantams have received post-season kudos including: Don Miller- New England Division II & III Coach of the Year; Eric Mudry- Kodak All-American; Shaun Kirby and Eric Mudry- New England Sports Writers Division II & III All-Stars; Steve Mikulski, Mike Cataldo, Tom McDavitt, and Eric Mudry- First-Team ECAC All-Stars; and Greg Broderick, Rick Fonte- Second-Team ECAC All-Stars. In addition, Shaun Kirby and Eric Mudry were named the NESCAC Offensive and Co-Defensive Players of the Year, respectively, as Trinity placed eight players on the NESCAC All-Star squad. The Field Hockey team also had an unforgetable fall season, advancing to the NCAA Division Ill Final Four tournament in Fredericksburg, Virginia. This fall marked the first year that NESCAC schools could qualify for the NCAA tournament, and the Trinity women did not disappoint. After finishing the regular season with a 12-2 record, the Bantams travelled to Smith College for the NCAA regional tournament where they faced previously undefeated Plymouth State. In that game , Trinity

posted a 3-1 victory and advanced to play last year's National Champion, William Smith College. This game was much closer, as the two teams were tied at the end of regulation and two overtime periods. Trinity finally advanced after winning the game on penalty strokes, and earned a birth in the Final Four. Although the Bantams lost both games in Virginia, they still finished the season ranked fourth in the nation. Congratulations are in order for the entire team, as well as First-Team AllAmericans Lindsey Davison and Braxton Jones, Third- Team All-American Marcia Gray, and Regional All-American Mali Barkman.

WINTER OUTLOOKS

Ice Hockey The Bantams' initial season in the ECAC East (4-13- 2 and 8-13-2 overall) proved to be dissappointing. While competitive in terms of speed, effort and enthusiasm, the Bantams were plagued by a lack of steady scoring, inconsistent play in the goal, and a young defensive corps that suffered from a lack of experience at the East level. As Coach John Dunham explains, "When we moved up to the ECAC East, we expected that it would take a three- to four-year rebuilding effort to become a play-off contender. Assuming that we can overcome our lack of firepower and resolve our goaltending situation, this team has a real opportunity to hustle its way into play-off contention." The Bantams will again field a young group of forwards, with Todd Mills (59=14) being the lone senior. The swiftskating Mills, who has averaged 17 points each year over three seasons, will be a key player in the Bantams' offense this season. Patrick Bruno (5-7=12) is an excellent two-way forward who provides experience and size. Brendan Monahan (76=13) is a solid fixture at right wing, while Patrick Ashe (1-5=6) and Ken Golden (3-8=11) are both rugged wingers with speed and power. Jon Oglebay (85=13) has displayed offensive prowess while Joe Yannetti has proven his worth as a defensive forward and face-off specialist. Veterans Oliver Cooke (0-4=4) and Peter Krawiec (0-1 =1) will also compete for regular spots.

Last season proved to be a learning experience for the Bantams' current sophomore forwards, and Coach Dunham will look to a group which includes Casey Kutner, Bill Hogan, Matt Clark, and Sean McElligott to blossom into dependable regulars this season. Incoming freshmen Neil Yonker, Terry Long, and Craig Muse all have a great opportunity to provide a spark and immediately contribute. The blue-line corps returns intact and is led by captain Chris Golini (1-3=4), who was the team's plus/minus leader (+16) a year ago. Another key returning senior is James Stuart (+5 and 1-8=9) , who has developed into a solid two-way rear guard. Junior Jordan Davis (1 - 2=3) established himself as a regular with a solid season. Smooth-skating and highly skilled sophomore Christian Sheehan (2-9=11) should build on an impressive freshman campaign. Rugged Gary Duncan (2-4=6), who possesses excellent size and skating ability, rounds out the returning lettermen. With a talented group of incoming freshmen in Glenn Cucinell, Brady Jensen, and Dan McKew, there is a strong possibility of moves up front to bolster the forward lines. The goaltending position is up for grabs as the incumbent workhorse Mike Esposito (4.24 GAA and a .884 save percentage) faces a strong challange from transfer Jason Pinto and freshmen David Finn, Peter Guiney and Hale Everets.

Men's Basketball Last season was a difficult one for Coach Stan Ogrodnik and the Bantams, as it was only the third losing season for Trinity in the last 12 years. The good news is that the Bantams will return their starting five from last season and seven of the top eight scorers. In graduating only three seniors, Coach Ogrodnik was able to give his younger players plenty of time on the court, which should benefit the team this season. Coach Ogrodnik returns 13 letterwinners from last season and will look to .power forward David Jones to lead the way. Jones was second on the team last season (13.5 ppg) and led the team in rebounding (7.3 rpg). Jones was a NESCAC Second Team All-Star in his

sophomore season and will be looking to make an impression as a senior. At the other forward position, junior Dane Aiken will return as a starter and should blossom into a top player this season. After seeing limited time in his fn;shman season, Aiken played in all 21 games last season, averaging 11.2 points per game and 7.3 rebounds, while steadily improving all season long. Returning at center will be junior Greg Haffner (11.5 ppg, 5.3 rpg), who is capable of controlling the paint with his strength underneath the hoop. Haffner led the team last season in free-throw attempts and had a free - throw percentage of. 735. Off the bench at forward will be junior Pat Kinzeler. A solid player, Kinzeler saw little court action last season but is expected to get more involved in the offense this year. In the backcourt, Coach Ogrodnik has a solid one-two combination in senior captain Jeff Almeida and sophomore Troy McKelvin. Almeida (6.0 ppg, 3 .2 apg) is a tough one-on-one defender, and is capable of controlling the offense with his ability to see the entire court. McKelvin was named to the NESCAC's All-Rookie Team last season, as he led the team in scoring (14.1 ppg) and three-point baskets (38). In addition, McKelvin led the team in steals (37) and assists (108). According to Coach Ogrodnik, "We expect Troy to continue to be one of our team leaders. He's naturally talented and aggressive, and should be that much better next year after a season of college ball under his belt." Coming off the bench, the Bantams have capable players in Steffan Tomlinson and Mark Lotty. Both saw limited action last year and will look to prove themselves as worthy contributors to the team. This year's team has the potential to regain the dominance once held by Trinity. With the proper balance of leadership and youth, the Bantams are looking to rebound from last year's disappointing season and provide many nights of fun and excitement for their fans. "We have the _talent to be an outstanding team," says Ogrodnik, "and I detect the same resolve and attitude during our workouts that some of our past championship teams possessed."

Men's Squash The men's squash players will have their work cut out for them if they are to recapture their 11-3 record and #4 ranking that they attained at the end of last season. With graduation claiming five of the ten players and only one senior returning, Coach John Anz feels that reloading could be a two-year process. This could actually be a benefit for the team, as it will allow them to grow and mature, as they have little to lose during the upcoming campaign. Leading the way for the Bantams this season will be junior Ryan O'Connell. While he spent most of the season at the number two position, O'Connell also saw some action at the top spot, which should give him confidence as he faces the nation's best collegiate players. O'Connell

ended last season with a "career win" in the Team Championship Tournament and hopefully will be able to pick up from there. Also returning to guide the Bantams will be senior co-captain Chris Felley. Felley was voted the team's MVP in 1992. He is a strong, powerful player who has dominated in the lower part of the lineup. This season, Felley will have to step up a level and provide the same leadership as he competes in the middle of the draw. Along with O'Connell, the line-up will consist of juniors Harrison Mullin, cocaptain Christian Bullitt, Adam Beard, and sophomore Austin Perkins. Mullin is a tough competitor who has had two very successful seasons so far. After playing at the number-four spot last season, he wil1 most likely move up into one of the top three positions. Bullitt finished last season with a 9-2 record and will occupy a lead-

ership post. According to Coach Anz, Bullitt has yet to scratch the surface of his potential, and could emerge as a star. Beard, who is also the captain of the tennis team, has steadily improved over the past two seasons. He will be a key player in the lower half of the line-up. Perkins was the only freshman to see consistent action last year, playing at the numberthree seed and finishing with a record of 11-3. He was voted the team's Most Improved Player last year, consistently improving throughout the course of the season. In addition to the returning players, Coach Anz has a number of freshmen who have the potential for strong performances. Leading this group is Michael Bittner, who has b.een one of the top three juniors in the country the past two years. He faces an early test, as he is likely to start in the top half of the line- up. Other freshmen expected to make an impact are Tosh Belsinger, Chris Newton, and Stephen Gregg. Predicting an outcome will be difficult this season, as a number of other teams have improved in the off-season. It is possible that the team could finish as high as fourth again, but that might be a long shot. Coach Anz expects the team to be in a position to win every match. Whether they do or not will depend on how the team matures throughout the season. "This season will be much like two years ago. Comprised mostly of juniors and freshmen, we boast a very good, very young but inexperienced squad. If we handle the pressure of tough matches and disappointing defeats well this season, we have very much to look forward to down the road," he said.

Men's Swimming The men's team was hard hit by graduation, losing three swimmers who currently hold five College records. However, junior Jeff Pennington and senior co-captain elect Luke McCarthy return to headline a strong Bantam lineup. Pennington holds two individual and three relay records, and McCarthy holds four individual College records. Sophomores Don Baumann and J eb Gutelius, along with Pennington, give Trinity formidable strength in freestyle sprints, while Eric Graham, with a spectacular New Englands performance to his credit will be counted on in backstroke. Still another sophomore, Tom Appleton, appears to have come into his own in the individual medley and distance freestyle.


Co-captain John Donahue will be on hand for the breaststroke and butterfly events, as will junior Wayne Ogorzalek, who had an impressive record last season. Diving will be handled by nifty junior Jared VonArx and incoming freshman J ustin Jarvis, a Meriden, Conn. high school standout. Other top recruits include middle-distance freestyler Scott Heidorn and individual medley specialist David McFarland. Overall, the Bantams appear well-balanced, with strength in all events. If they have an Achilles heel, it is likely in team depth.

Women's Swimming Coming off a fine 7-3 season last winter, the women's team appears equally strong in 1993-94. With most of their top scorers returning, the women will be bolstered by the addition of several outstanding freshmen. The team will be captained by veteran standout Stephanie Cope, an all-event swimmer and holder of the College 400 IM record. Sprint freestyle will again be the strength, with senior Natascha Kontny and junior Cheryl Buchanan returning, and the addition of two heralded freshmen, Lisa Giarratano and Alyson Guild. Middle and distance freestyle events will again be in the capable hands of junior Beth Downer and senior Amanda Johnson . College record-holder Kim Aguilar and sophomore Caitlin Corbiere offer a formidab le one-two in the butterfly. Breaststroke will remain a top Bantam event with juniors Leslie Orlando and Sarah Stuckey out front. Diving will undoubtedly be one of the Bantams' strongest suits. Sophomore Shara Abraham, last season's MVP, and junior Betsy Anning are coming off an outstanding season. Freshmen Lisa Bartley, Megan Gay, and Ginger Watson bring impressive credentials to their first season. Diving coach John Helm is enthusiastic about his combined charges. Other incoming freshmen that have Coach Chet McPhee smiling are sprinter Joanna McKeigue and IM/breaststroker Patty Ryan. Prospects are very bright for the Bantams, who could be on their way to the best season in many years.

starters. Fortunately for Coach Maureen Pine, she has the cornerstone on which to build in senior co-captain J ennifer Hadfield and junior Barbara Toolan. Hadfield and Toolan finished one-two in scoring last season, and hopefully will continue to dominate their opponents. Hadfield (18.6 ppg, 8.2 rpg) was elected to the New England Division III All-Star squad last season as she led the Bantams to a 14-9 season, just missing a berth in the ECAC Division III tournament. She is a physical player capable of controlling the game at either end. Hadfield set a school record last season, scoring 427 points, and is closing in on the College's all-time scoring record. Helping Hadfield in the frontcourt will be senior Kate Armstrong, junior Patty Sarmuk and sophomore Susan Lally. Armstrong, a six-foot forward who averaged 6.4 points per game last season, saw limited time due to the strength of the team last season. Coach Pine looks for Armstrong to play a major role in the offense this season. Sarmuk is also expected

to jump into the offense this season. While averaging 4.2 points per game last season, Sannuk was solid off the bench. Sarmuk and Armstrong could both enjoy a great season as opponents focus on how to stop Hadfield. Lally had a solid freshman campaign, playing in 18 of the team's 23 games. With a year of College-level experience under her belt, Lally should benefit tremendously. In the backcourt, Coach Pine lost her combination of Lisa O'Connell and Kathy Moynagh, who had started together for all four seasons they were here . Looking to fill that void will be junior Barbara Toolan. Toolan finished second on the team in scoring last season with 10.5 points per game. She holds nearly every College record in three-point shots. In her career, Toolan has made 73 three-pointers, 25 more than Moynagh, who is in second place. With a season to go, Toolan should be able to expand upon those records as well as remain a major defensive threat, as she averaged more than two steals per game. The other guard position will be decided in the preseason, by the performances of sophomores Kara Ryczek and Kathryn Sanders . Like Lally, Ryczek enjoyed a solid freshman season, playing in 21 of the games and learning under the tutelage of Moynagh and O'Connell. With a host of freshman recruits and a solid base of returning players, Coach Pine looks to senior leadership and underclass enthusiasm to blend and guide the team to another winning season.

Sarah Hammond, who was lost to graduation, and making the switch from hardball to softball in intercollegiate play. However, things look bright for Coach Wendy Bartlett, now entering her tenth year, as she returns eight letter winners and introduces three promising freshmen to her team. The switch to softball will be faced by all of the women's intercollegiate squash teams this year. Coach Bartlett believes her team is ready to face this challenge due to Trinity's state-of-the-art facility. "Our facility, with three international courts, gives us an edge since our players are exposed to softball in the off-season and in various junior and pro tournaments." Bartlett also believes a different approach must be taken by each player, since the softball, a much slower ball, puts greater emphasis on the conditioning of each player. "Along with the importance of conditioning, each player will have to adjust her strategy to effectively play the new type of game. The mental part of changing strategies is something we will definitely concentrate on." Leading the 1993-94 team will be junior co-captain Kate Whitmore. Whitmore, 9-3 in dual match play last year, was awarded Second Team All-American honors and will look to take over the number-one position vacated by Hammond. Whitmore, who was voted the team's MVP in her freshman year, will look to take her game to the next level and pace Trinity to a high national ranking. Mary Tyler, a senior co-captain, was 81 at the number-nine position last year and will also be looked upon to give leadership and support to her teammates. Three juniors will be counted on to play consistent squash for Trinity. Courtney Dann, Whitney LaMotte, and Deborah Nicolls all must make a successful switch to softball in 1993-94. Dann was 6-4 at the number-five position and looks to improve that record in 1993-94. LaMotte, who was the team's Most Improved Player as a freshman, was 10-2 at the number-six position and can only improve as she gains more experience. Nicholls, who did not play last year, will

look to better her 3-0 record as a freshman. Three sophomores will also be counted on to contribute for Coach Bartlett. Meaghan O'Malley, Carolyn Young, and Lindsey Conway all completed successful rookie seasons for the Bantams. Q'Malley, playing at the number-eight postion, had a 10-2 record and will most likely move up the ladder along with Young, wh0 had a 11-2 record competing in the numberseven position. Conway, with an a 11-1 record at the tenth position, rounds out the trio of sophomores who will be the cornerstone of the team for three more years. Three newcomers to the team are expected to make a positive contribution in 1993-94. Freshmen Elizabeth Cuckler, Mar_garet Hartigan, and Mary-Katherine Refenheiser all have had success at the secondary school level and will be counted on to make the adjustment to intercollegiate squash and the softball game. With the 1993-94 team is a nice balance of returning veterans and talented newcomers, Coach Bartlett is excited and optimistic about the team's chances. "After being ranked second in the country, we now know what it takes to make the step up - practicing and competing with a great deal of intensity and focus - so we should continue that level of playing into this year." Even with the change to softball, Bartlett contends that the more preparation each player gives, the more successful the team as a whole will be. "We are eager to make the switch. If we concentrate, with great intensity, on conditioning, technique, and strategy, we will be, once again, one of the top schools in the country."

Wrestling The parts to the puzzle are beginning to fit together. Seasoned upperclassmen, a talented freshman class, and an experienced coaching staff give this year's team a strong foundation to succeed. Leading the way for the Bantams this season will be senior tri-captain Adam Dunn and junior tri-captains Tucker MacLean and Robert Bligh. Junior Brian Roberts will contribute importantly as well. An All-America selection last season, MacLean has added muscle tone .to his lean physique and will wrestle at the 190weight class this season. As a freshman, MacLean was a New England champion, and was voted "Rookie of the Year" by the New England Wrestling Association. Last year, MacLean posted an outstanding

dual-meet record of 18-1. His success continued all the way to the Division III Na- . tiona! Championships, where he placed fifth overall . In heroic fashion, MacLean upset the fourth seed of the tournament by a pin in the second period. He then went on to the semifinals where he lost to the eventual National Champion. MacLean closed out the day with a victory in his final match, securing him the fifth-place finish and All-America honors. Coach Sebby Amato describes MacLean as a "thrilling, unorthodox wrestler with the uncanny ability to find ways to win." Robert Bligh, who will wrestle at 150 pounds, promises to be one of New England's best this season. Last year, Bligh was voted "Most Improved" by the team as he posted a 12-4 dual meet record . "Bob has great hips and balance which make him dangerous for an unsuspecting opponent," says Amato. Still, Bligh will have his hands full holding off eager freshmen Steve Vargas and Raymond Jones. Jones was State Champion in Massachusetts last year and third in New England. Starting things off at 118 pounds is senior standout Brian Roberts. As a junior, Roberts posted an impressive 22-7 overall record. He was able to place third in both the Springfield Invitational and Plymouth State Invitational, which featured stiff competition from Divisions I, II, and III. Also, Roberts recieved the "Greatest Team Contributor Award," given to that individual who most exemplifies effort, teamwork and sacrifice. Coach Amato describes Ro berts as "a fierce competitor with precise technique ." Following Roberts at 126 pounds will be sophomore Michael Zaino and freshman Jay Paramsothy. Both should vie for a varsity spot this season. At the 134 weightclass, senior Jeremy Burden will be pushed by freshman Nate MacDonald. Burden tends to wrestle on his feet, taking his opponent down and letting him back up. Coach Amato looks to Burden to show consistency in his final season. At 142 pounds, Burden will make things interesting as three upperclassmen and one freshman compete for the varsity spot. Senior Paul Moorer is quick as a cat and known for picking the ankles of unsuspecting opponents. Junior Jakob Shaw enjoys GrecoRoman style wrestling, and as a result, likes to pin his opponents from the standing position. Another junior, Brett Lindemuth, is strong and extremely agressive. Freshman Kirk Bedell, last year's New England Prep School Champion, will round out the competition in that weight class.


In the 158-pound weight clasS: two sophomores will continue to do battle for the varsity spot. Vassily Eliopoulous enjoyed plenty of mat time last season, perhaps giving him the advantage over David Weston. Eliopoulous is a leg and cradle wrestler, while Weston methodically wears down his opponents. Sophomore Jason Teebagy and freshman Jay Bangash

will butt heads at 167 pounds. Teebagy has worked hard in the off-season and is ready to prove that he is worthy of a varsity position. Finally, the heavyweight duties will be handled by junior Adam Ondricek. Ondricek is enthusiastic and eager to become a competitive wrestler. This season, Trinity has been named as

the host school for the New England Division III Championships, an honor not bestowed upon the school in more than a 路 decade. Coach Amato has worked hard to build the Trinity program over the last several years, and hopes that this tournament will showcase both the program and College as being among the top of Division Ill.

JIM MURRAY: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY The Autobiography of the Pulitzer Prize Winning Sports Columnist

Jim Murray '43 Hon. '81 Macmillan Publishing Company, New York, 1993, 268 pages, $20.00

54

This is vintage Jim Murray, writing as only he can, in reflections on his life and work as a syndicated sports columnist. His is a career studded with distinction, capped in 1990 by a Pulitzer Prize for commentary on sports. From his growing-up days in Hartford; his early days as a Time magazine Hollywood reporter covering stars like Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne; his writing for Sports Illustrated; and to his tenure as the featured sports columnist for the Los Angeles Times, Murray spins fascinating stories about famous personalities: Marlon Brande, Richard Nixon, f\1uhammad Ali, Pete Rose, Magic Johnson, Ben Hogan, Al Davis, and many more. The book takes in the private side of his life, including his personal trialsthe loss of his wife Gerry and son Rick, and his ongoing fight to retain his eyesight. As in countless columns over the decades, Murray here is candid, perceptive and brilliantly witty. Some examples from the book: "I never got bored. But I never rooted. If you root, you'll be in a straightjacket by Mother's Day. But, if I had a lead for a column going in my mind and it required, say, Tommy John or Fernando Valenzuela to do well that day, I rooted. I am a big fan ofleads." "Will sports ever return to what it was? Not so long as that red light is on. Not so long as that long-running morality play - US against THEM - is played out on camera with instant replay, pay-

per-view, network and film-ateleven. Sports is just corporate America in cleats. It should be be on the Big Board. And it's the real opiate of the people." Murray now writes three columns a week instead of six, but he expects to be on the road a while longer. However, he says, "I don't want to die in a Holiday Inn. I'd like to get a gold watch at least." METAPUNCTUATION When a Comma Isn't Enough

Lewis Burke Frumkes '61 Dell, The Intrepid Linguist Library, November 1993, $5.99 The talented and creative author of How to Raise Your IQ by Eating Gifted Children and The Mensa Think Smart Book has written what he describes as a "hilarious new approach to punctuation that goes where no grammarian has gone before." In Metapunctuation Frumkes seeks to rectifY the lamentable gaps in the English language's store ofavailable punctuation marks. While English is rich in vocabulary - upwards of one million words, it is noted - it is rendered poor in its "piddling handful of tired, overworked dots, dashes, and devices that fall short when it comes to delivering the 路 written word as the writer intended it. " Frumkes suggests the addition to English punctuation of phobic brackets, to enclose fear gone wildly out of control; infatuation marks to indicate a frivolous kind oflove; ring ofindignation to really let 'em have it; passion waves for prose ranging from purple to blue; and contempto-

drips for utter disdain. Like his previous books, Metapunctuation takes a fresh and funny approach to a slice oflife taken too much for granted. A writer and humorist, Frumkes has had work published in Harper's, Cosmopolitan, Travel and Leisure, and The New Yor-k Times. He teaches at Marymount Manhattan College and Harvard University, and orchestrates Marymount' s Distinguished Lecture Series. His radio talk show airs Sundays at 8 pm. on WNWK-FM, when he interviews noted authors and personalities such as Robert Fulghum and Bobbie Ann Mason. THE LEARNING EDGE How Smart Managers and Smart Companies Stay Ahead

Calhoun W . Wick '57 and Lu Stanton Leon McGraw-Hill, Inc., New York, 1993, 232 pages, $22.95

The Learning Edge presents a strong and persuasive case for learning as key to both individual success and corporate survivaL Authors Wick and Leon study the concept of" intentional learning at work," showing how work experiences are converted into learning opportunities. The book offers a bold new approach for transforming a company into a flexible learning organization that consistently outthinks and outsmarts the competition. Citing examples from leading companies such as Corning and Motorola, the authors show how businesses can respond effectively (and profitably) both to changing consumer preferences and to ever-shortening product and technology cycles. They present five essential components which make the learning process like a wheel, gathering momentum as i~ energizes individuals and companies alike. ' Gail Robinson, director of human resources at Lever Brothers, said of the


book: "I just read The Learning Edge: How Smart Managers and Smart Companies Stay Ahead from beginning to end. I can't remember the last time I read a book straight through ..The concepts were intriguing and the text was very engaging and readable." Kenneth Way, ch;:tirman and CEO of Lear Seating Corporation, said, "Any progressive manager should read The Learning Edge. Calhoun Wick believes a good manager must be adept at learning so that he can achieve significant breakthroughs in his pusiness. He is right on." Author Wick is president and founder of Wick & Co., a Wilmington, Delaware-based research and consulting firm, specializing in executive and leadership development for both established and emerging firms. For the past 12 years he has studied how people learn and grow through work experience, compiling one of the country's largest databases of key work experiences that directly result in career development.

THE SOUL OF A BUSINESS Managing for Profit and the Common Good Tom 'Chappell '66 Bantam Books, New York, 1993, 224 pages, $21.95 Described as "perhaps the most revolutionary business book of the fall," The Soul ifa Business tells how Tom Chappell rediscovered his values and redirected his life and his company, acquiring along the way a new business vision and the tools to make that vision come true. Chappell co-founded "Tom's of Maine" with his wife, Kate, in 1970. Since then, the company has grown to be the leading producer of natural personal care products in the country. But, at the height of his success, a few years ago, Chappell felt unfulfilled. He found what

was m1ssmg from his personal and profesional life at Harvard Divinity School, where he studied part-time while remaining CEO of his company. There he learned that his values - his respect for people and the environment - did not mean he had to give up financial succ~ss. Chappell's philosophy and strategies have increased his company's growth 25-30% each year and made Tom's ofMaine the most successful small corporation in America. "Not only can your personal beliefs be brought to work, they can work for you," he says in the book's introduction. In the book he gives step-by-step advice for turning philosophical ideas into practical business strategies. He also relates stories from the daily experiences of Tom's of Maine ofhow employees participated in redefining their company's values, including flex-time, subsidized child care, and a compressed work week for production employees. In turn, employees are encouraged to donate five percent of their time at work - for which they are paid - to community needs. In return the company dedicates ten percent of profits to support the arts, education, the environment, and human needs. In 1991, Chappell received the Entrepreneur of theY ear from CNBC, and in 1992 Tom's ofMaine received the Corporate Conscience Award for Charitable Contributions from the Council onEconomic Priorities. This year the Chappells received the New England Environmental Leadership Award and the Governor's Award for Business Excellence.

The first fullscale biography of the noted American author in more than 50 years, this book covers the pioneering work of Harriet Beecher Stowe and also depicts vividly women's lives in the 19th century. Born into the powerful Beecher clan, Stowe was the daughter, sister, and wife of prominent ministers. She enjoyed public acclaim, but also private adversities, including deaths of two sons and alcohol and morphine addictions of two of her other children. Author Hedrick describes the means by which Stowe channeled her pain and her ambition into a socially acceptable anger on behalf of others, recasting her own experience into powerful narratives that moved a nation. Still controversial today for its portrayal of African Americans and its unresolved place in the literary canon, Uncle Tom's Cabin was published in weekly installmentsfromJuneS, 1851 toApril1 , 1852. It created such debate in this country and in England that when Stowe met President Lincoln in 1862, he is reported to have said to her, "So you are the little woman who wrote the book that created this great war!" In this biography Hedrick portrays a complex and gifted woman, whose life and achievements reflect the complicated world of 19th-century morals and mores which was her orb. "A splendid, balanced representation of an author in her many roles, and of the way she changed her world," said Kirk us Reviews. "A masterly biography, the best I've read in a great while," wrote author Phyllis Rose. "An engaging and informative book that brings to life not just the complex and fascinating woman and writer, but also the 19th-century America

that shaped her and was in turn shaped by her," wrote Ellen Duranceau in Library Journal. The author of Solitary Comrade: Jack London and His Work, Hedrick is director ofwomen's studies and associate professor of history at Trinity.

THE HARRIET BEECHER STOWE READER

Cynthia Reik M' 63 The Stowe-Day Foundation, Hartford, Conn., 1993, 485 pages

56

This paperback volume contains examples from the many kinds of writing accomplished by Harriet Beecher Stowe. There are excerpts from her novels Uncle Tom's Cabin, Dred, The Minister's Wooing, The Pearl of Orr's Island, Pink and White Tyranny, and Poganuc People- as well as from her short fiction, writing for children, nonfiction, correspondence, and poetry. Author Reik acknowledges that the Reader had its genesis in an experience she had as a teacher. In a course called "Women in Literature" at the Hartford Public High School, which is next door to the Harriet Beecher Stowe House and two doors down from the Stowe-Day Foundation, a student asked to do reading and a paper on some of Harriet Beecher Stowe's short stories and articles. There was no accessible collection of these available, Reik says. The R eader contains an introduction, describing Stowe's life and writing career, portraits of the Stowe and Beecher families and family homes, and iilustrations from editions of Stowe's works. Reik teaches in Trinity's Upward Bound Program.

MARK TWAIN OVERSEAS A Biographical Account of His Voyages, Travels, and Reception in Foreign Lands, 1866-1910

Robert M. Rodney '3 5 Three Continents Press, Colorado Springs, Colo., 1993, 349 pages cloth $35.00, paper $18 This work is Rodney's fourth published study ofT wain. He became interested in the author's overseas travel as he considered the roles of 19th-century

study of American writers abroad and a reference guide to outstanding writers, an outgrowth of many years' experience as moderator of Great Books discussion programs. American writers who accepted political appointments, or, in the case of some, were even recruited into foreign ;ervice. Rodney believed that Mark Twain, while not in the diplomatic service, dispensed good will widely throughout Europe and elsewhere in the world. And, Twain's , travels and residences in Europe had received little notice from biographers and critics. "The popular notion has persisted that Mark Twain was essentially a creator of intriguing but out_:moded short stories, humorous anecdotes, homespun aphorisms, and boyhood tales, seasoned with nostalgic sketches of Mississippi River life. It seemed to me that this multifaceted writer deserved a fuller portrayal that should include his international dimensions," writes Rodney. What prompted Twain, other than expediency, Rodney asks, to make so many overseas trips?"What drew him on," he writes, "for weeks and even months at a time through the Hawaiian Islands, across the Palestine desert, over Alpine trails, down European rivers, across the plains oflndia? What, especially, reconciled him to those dozens of time-consuming trans-Atlantic crossings and those interminably long Pacific voyages? On the surface, these peregrinations seemed like a contradiction in a man who prized above all else his family, his circle of New England friends, his Hartford home, and his domestic comfort." Rodney explores Twain's own words on his travels, the testimonials of contemporary friends and acquaintances, and press coverage, for the meaning of the foreign experience to him. Rodney taught English literature and composition for more than 40 years at Pennsylvania State University, Colby and Union colleges, among others and served as dean ofliberal arts at Eastern Montana College. His previous books on Mark Twain include The Art, Humor, and Humanity of Mark Twain, The Birds and Beasts of Mark Twain, and Mark Twain International. He is now at work on a

FIELDING'S THE GREAT SIGHTS OF EUROPE

Robert and Patricia Foulke M'70 Fielding Travel Books, William Morrow & Co., New York, 426 pages, $1 5.00 The authors of The Great Sights of Europe have strong ties to Trinity. Robert Foulke taught in the English department from 1961-1970, and Patricia Foulke received her master's degree from Trinity. They've traveled and lived in Europe for the past 40 years, spending most of some years on sabbatical leave there. Sometimes they had their little children with them, then teenagers. "Now it is just the two of us again," writes Patricia. They have bought a car to be delivered in Europe seven times and have then had transportation to get to out-of- the-mainstream places. "It has been a pleasure to write about sightseeing within major cities, day trips around the cities and excursions farther out," Patricia says. The original Fielding guide, begun by Temple Fielding in the '50s, is still being published, dealing mainly with hotels with just a little bit on sightseeing. The book by the Foulkes focuses on sightseeing in 22 European countries, with a few historic hotels listed in an appendix. In most cases, the European cities and capitals covered are described in sections on history, sightseeing, day trips, and excursions. There is an introduction about European travel, and there are maps of each country.

Krieble Scholar Zager A recent Russian emigre, Mark Y. Zager '94 is the 1993 Loctite Corporation Vernon K. Krieble Scholar and thereby recipient of a one-year, full-tuition scholarship for $17,950. Zager and his family moved to West Hartford, Conn. in 1989. As refugees, they were matched with a local host family. Dr. Helen Lang, Zager's host mother and a professor of philosophy at Trinity, saw great potential in him and encouraged him to apply to Trinity. Within nine months of arriving in the U.S., he was accepted and enrolled. David E. Henderson, professor and chairman of the chemistry department at Trinity, describes Zager's acadernic record as "clearly the strongest in his class of chemistry and biochemistry majors." He was selected not only for his outstanding academic record, but also for his commitment to chemical research. He has done extensive research aimed at elucidating the structure ofhydroxyapatite in bone

and the role of the protein osteocalcin in bone formation. The son of Shelen andY ury Zager, Zager is the first student from Trinity's Individualized Degree Program to win the Krieble Scholarship. He ;tttributes his success in part to the school system in Russia, where he was required to take four years of chemistry by the time he reached the tenth grade. Zager completed the pre-med program at Trinity, but has decided to enter the field of computer-aided

chemistry instead. A member of the Trinity Chemistry Society and Tae Kwon Do Club, he has received the Chemical Rubber Company Award in freshman and sophomore chemistry. ''I'm grateful to Loctite Corporation, Trinity College, and Trinity's chemistry department. This is a tremendous honor and I'm truly indebted," says Zager. Since 1961, Loctite pCorporation has presented the Vern on K. Krieble Scholarship Award each year to a senior chemistry major at Trinity who has demonstrated outstanding scholastic achievement and who offers the promise of making a significant contribution to the profession of chemistry. The award is named after the Trinity College professor who founded Loctite Corporation in 1953. Loctite is a Fortune 500 company and a worldwide, market-driven specialty chemical company. Based in Hartford, Loctite's principal markets include industrial electronics, specialized medical, professional automotive, and consumer.

Debra Holik Debra Holik '94 received a $5,000 fellowship grant from Pfizer Central Research to conduct scientific research last summer. She and the 47 other college and university students who won the grants presented their project results and met with scientists at Pfizer Central Research in Groton, Conn. this fall.

recorded a double album of 40 of these songs . Iva and I agreed that he did a better job than John M cCormack. Than which no more can be said . On June '16, we were the guests ofDICK MORRIS '40 w h en he spoke to th e Noank Connecticut Historical Society about the life and career of DOC LANE. Dick's talk was appreciatively received by Doc's many fri ends and neighbors in Noank. The Historical Society has published The L og of the Downit, a transcript of a diary kept by Doc during his boyhood w hen he was sailing the waters around Noank and Mysti c. It was edited and illustrated by Dick. We have lost one more of our classmates: IVAN BENNETT. Ivan had an impressive listing in Wh o's Who . At our 50th, I had an interesting conversation with him on topics ranging from linguistics to genealogy Frank A. Kelly, Jr. 21 Forest Dr. Newington, Conn. 06111 Class Agent: Donald J. Day

63 The reward of being Class Secretary is that yo u have an excuse for calling up classmates you may not have seen nor heard fron'l for now more than 50 years. For th is report, I had extensive conversations w ith JOHN BOND, LEO CZARNOTA and BOB MADAMA. The experience is gratifyi ng. You call som eone and then there is instant response and recognition. Obviously, there's a lot of nostalgia, a condensed report of w hat's happened over 50 years and w hat's happening today. John Bond was one of the few mid-westerners in our C lass . We were quite provincial then: New England, the East and mainly the Hartford area. And John has continued to be western-oriented : degrees at the University of Chicago and the University of Minnesota; teaching in Southern Illinois, North Dakota and Colorado; and now living close to a daughter in Kansas. John is retired but keeps busy doing a lot of volunteer work for the condo complex in w hich h e lives . Bob Madama is living on the wes t coast of Florida, rel uctantly retired. He ran his own businesses until his health forced him to stop.

Bob would have gone to the 50th had not his health prevented him from going. Our talk naturally gravitated toward baseball and the Dan Jessee era. Bob was a member of the memorable combination: Beidler to Madama to FORD. During the War, Bob saw lots of action as a member of the Coast Guard, on the commander's ship in many of those famous island landings against the Japanese. Bob considered the Coast Guard as a career but finally couldn't handle the thought of regimented military life. Our talk naturally touched on HENRY ROTHAUSER, Bob 's Hartford neighbor as well as classmate, since Henry served on a Coast Guard buoy tender in Greenland waters, among other places . Leo Czarnota is still in the Hartford area, living a widower life in Wethersfield and restricted by severe arthritis. Leo taught chemistry at Hartford High but just missed going into h is preferred career w hen he was called into service only days before he was informed that he was accepted at medical school. Leo flew P-47s out of England and was shot down and imp riso ned for a year. He said that he was not mistreated as a prisoner, but underfed. T he bright light in Leo's eyes these days is a granddaughter who has made Trinity her first choice and who has, according to Leo, a good chance of being accepted. Leo is pretty much tied down and he'd like to hear from you. Most of us missed the annual dinner of the immortals at Trinity in June. To many this dinner is anticlimactic after the 50th, but it is a rewarding experience. I couldn't go, but I asked our Hartford correspondent, FOSTER RHINES, to report, which he clid. DICK BESTOR was there. He told me last year he was going to every one of them. So was WALLY ANDERSON, a stillpracticing neurologist, and TOM TAMONEY. Where was DON VIERING? At his grandson's graduation out in Ohio. A genealogical question for JERRY HANSEN '51: any grandchildren of' 42 at Trinity yet? Another question: are any of us greatgrandparents yet? Joseph J.

m Our 50th Reunion, held on campus June 10-13,1993, exceeded in every respect our classmates' most optimistic expectations . About 40 percent of our surviving classmates attended, accompanied by wives, family and friends. Our Class Gift to the alumni fund exceeded by four times the highest sum ever previously raised during annual fund drives . Attendees gathered from College registration lists are herein set out in the order of sign- in: Susie and PETE PETERSON, KEN YUDOWITCH,Jean and CARLOS RICHARDSON, Mary and RUSS COLLINS, JOE CASTAGNO, Alberta and AL EULIANO, Mary and BOB KELLY, Elaine and JOHN BONEE, ART HEALEY, PHIL CASOLINO, Celia and DAVE TYLER, Phyllis and AL STAFFORD, Emily and CHARLIE UPHAM, STEVE GLIDDEN, BILL GAVIN, Joy and BOB HALE, Adelaide and FRANK RACKEMANN, DICK GAGER, Nancy and WALT HAJEK, Barbara and BOB WELTON, Bonnie and BILL GREY, Betsy and BOB HINCKLEY, Jean and TOM ASHTON, Kathy and JIM MCANDREWS, Mary and TONY DE NIGRIS, HARRY TAMONEY, BOB VINTER, GEORGE DICKINSON, Gloria and SAL CARRABBA, Mildred and JARVIS BROWN, RAY CUNNINGHAM, Marie and JACK FAY, lbby and RANDY SHARP, Phyllis and MUSH GUILLET, GEORGE TRACY, Elizabeth and CHARLIE JONES, Isobel and PAUL WARREN. The aforegoing is recited with apologies to anyone who may have been inadvertently omitted. Please write Your Secretary and it will appear in a later publication. Charlie Jones, during the Class Dinner held Saturday night at the Koeppel Center, presented an oral tribute to former Dean and Coach Joe Clarke and which I quote, "Dear Joe: We, the somewhat elderly members ofTrinity 1943, wish to salute you at our 50th Reunion. No member of the faculty was respected more than you. Your wisdom, leadership and sense of humor were a major contribution to our well-being.You really cared. Thank you, Joe!" All classmates in attendance at the dinner signed the

tribute and Your Secretary was instructed to transmit it to J oe, which he did. Joe was thrilled to receive the tribute, happy to be so well remembered, and thanked each and every classmate for his thoughtfulness. Ray Cunningham, with the assistance of College Chaplain Nancy Charles, conducted a deeply moving memorial service in the College Chapel for members of the Class of 1943 who lost their lives in th e service of their country, and they included the following: RICHARD DEXTER, PHIL DRYDEN, BOB HUNTER, FRANKJONES, JR ., GEORGE NELSON,JOHN PEARSON, CHARLIE TOURISON and CLEVELAND WOODWARD. At the Class meeting it was proposed and unanimously agreed that the Class of 1943 would sponsor an expansion of the War Memoria! which is presently inscribed on the south wall of the Chapel near the entry, and which presently includes only the names of Trinity people who lost their lives in World War I. A fund was proposed for the purpose. Several classmates pledged contributions to the fund .

The 50th C lass of 1944 Reunion has been rescheduled for June 9-12,1994, on th e Trinity College campus. MARK TENNEY and DR. ROGER CONANT will serve as Re,!!nion events committee co-chairmen.

Please put these dates on your calendar and make sure to plan to attend this m ilestone in all our lives. Received a letter from HENRY D. (HANK) TWITCHELL, JR., which read: "On June 12 (1993), Reunion day, my w ife, Jean, and I and GEORGE BAXTER and his wife, Betty, j oined the Class of 1943 at their luncheon in the Q uadra!lgle. This was their 50th Reunion and our mutual very good friends of many years, JARVIS BROWN, and his wife, Mildred, were our C lass hosts. We had done the same five years ago for their 45th Reunion . Each time we renewed friendships with many of the attending members of the Class of '43. It was like old times!" Next year will be our Class' 50th Reunion. First, we urge all possible original 1944 Class members to join us at th e BIG ONE! Second, let's make our financi'al contribution to this Reunion class fund one of the biggest ever - .both in terms of members contribu ting and in actual dollars . Let's make ours the "Best of Show!" Third, our Class, and those just before and after ours, was split apart by the War. We returned in 1946 and later met many of our old friends and made many new friends. Hence, if those who can, w ill join other C lass Reunions than their own, yo u will find many of your friends. Members of those other classes might seriously consider joining us for old times' sake. MERRITT JOHNQUEST '47 writes and wants to know if YOUR SECRETARY has a nickname. He reminds us that his was "Moo." Sorry, Moo, I really don 't have anything that stuck besides "Elliott." Moo goes on to write an account, w ith a surprise ending about that amazing Trinity upset of a p hysically superior Coast Guard football team in 1942, at which our late classmate, JO H N FINK, played a maj or role. He writes: "That day a friend came up from Fairfield to see me, and for lack of anything more interesting to do, watch the mismatch. He had no particular interest in either football or Trinity, but by the four th quarter, he had acquired considerable. During th ose final moments with the sleeper play (where John ran the ball to the Coast Guard 10-yard-line) and other unlikely excitements he was on his feet going ape and screaming himself hoarse like the rest of us.

"Time passes, son1e 50 years. My friend pays another visit to Trinity. This time he watches his nephew and namesake installed as President. My friend's name is, of course, Tom Gerety. 路 "Bill Stern material?" You b et, Moo. Moo also notes that he and the elder Tom Gerety got together for their 50th high school reunion in 1990. Gerety is a retired judge, living in Stratford, Conn. Moo is a retired "adman" living in Ohio what Moo correctly speaks of as Connecticut's Western Reserve. H eard from Mrs. Dan Jessee, whose late husband was Trinity's football coach at the time of that famous victory over Coast Guard.

Jessee now lives in Washington State and says DON VIERING '42 and JOE BEIDLER '42 and their w ives have visited h er there. ED KELLY writes that he's looking forward to attending our 50th "with bells on." JOHN PEABODY informs us that he's learning to use a computer at the urging of his sons who "have told me that if I don't get onto it now, I will be too old to learn." John's two sons are getting married this year. John sends his best wishes and good luck with our 50th Reunion, and his regards to BILL PEELLE and LEW DABNEY.

PAUL B. KINCADE '46 w rites that he has received the commemorative medal, 40th Anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War (WWII), from the Russian Federation (formerly the U.S.S.R.). The medal was issued, not only to Russians, but also to surviving members of the U.S. Merchant Marine and the U.S. Navy Armed Guard who sailed in ships taking supplies and material to Russia. The Armed Guard men rode the merchant ships to protect them against German submarine, aircraft and surface ship attacks . Paul was a Navy signalman and served in the Armed Guard during the first year of the War, riding 10 different ships under five nations' flags. Five of the ships were sunk within three days to two weeks after he got off them, although his last merchant ship was torpedoed right outside of Boston Harbor, but didn't sink. Shortly after that experience he was selected for the NavyV-12 Progra111 and sent to Trinity w here he spent two semesters before transferring to Yale University for the NROTC Program. Mark W.

It is always good to gather 'neath the elms. This year's R eunion was no exception as our 45th Reunion Chairman JOE SCHACHTER's "wrap-up" summary so aptly reflects: "As best I can determine from records of the last R eunion, we had one more classmate at our 45th than turn ed out for our 40th - 18 in all ! Four had not b een back for a Reunion since they graduated: DON CRAIG, DICK ELAM, PAUL KUEHN and DON SHIPPY, and their pleasure at being on campus again was truly wonderful to behold! 路 "All were particularly pleased with the Reunion activities , and well they should have been. Friday afternoon's very special President's Reception for our Class only got us off to a great start. Commendations were given personally by

NOTES

President Gerety to ARTHUR WALMSLEY, LEN GREENBERG and PHIL DAVIDSON for major and long standing service to the College, and our pride-full weekend was underway. "At Saturday's major Reunion ceremonies, the highest award Trinity can bestow on an alumnus, the Eigenbrodt Trophy, went to Arthur Walmsley of our Class! Arthur is the second of our classmates to be so honored, w ith Len Greenberg receiving it 10 years ago. (Speaking of Arthur - h e has moved and his new address is R.D. 1, Box 224, Hillsboro, N .H. 03244.) "Also at these sa111e cerenlonies, it was announced that we had established a new record for giving for a 45th Reunion Class . This was the third record for Reunion giving our Class has achieved over the years! And those of us who were there saw the biggest gri11 ever on DON O'HARE's face b ecause, as C lass Agent, he organizes the yearly fund-raising efforts of our Class Captains across the country. This year's success was due greatly to his outstanding leadership and persistence. The latest figures show that our Reunion Class Gift of $23,408 came from 54 percent of our members . "The Saturday evening cocktail reception and dinner was super in every respect. We read letters from BRUCE N ICHOLSON and DAVE R IVKIN, both of w hom couldn't be with us. Dick Elam was lauded for having come the greatest distance, from Thousand Oaks, Calif, to be with us. Our special faculty guest was nowretired Professor J. BARD MCNULTY '38 who enlivened the evening with reminiscences about the faculty during the time we were on campus, plus a few reflections about his role as the Jester's faculty adviser when that organization was beingjumpstarted back to life in 1946-7, primarily by nuny of our Class m embers. Every classmate had a chance to share his thoughts as we went around the dinner tables for comments, and some of those thoughts were downright emotional to say the least. "Among the returning group of 18 were OTIS CHARLES, Don Craig, Phil Davidson, JOHN DOLAN, Dick Elam, B ILL GLAZIER, SAM GOLDSTEIN, OREY GRACEY, Len Greenberg, Paul Kuehn, ALLEN MCDONALD, Don O'Hare, MUNRO PROCTOR, HAL RICHMAN, Joe Schachter, Don

Shippy, Arthur Walmsley and KEN WYNNE. Although not everyone was there for all the events, everyone who came obviously got turned on by the camaraderie and great excitement of knowing our Class had made a lasting impact on the Trinity of our early years, and with the satisfaction of knowing that " his" College had grown so well with the times. "Your Class officers for the next five years and through our 50th Reunion (yes, 50th!) were elected at our Saturday morning Class meeting. They are Art Walmsley as President, Phil David,on as Vice President, Otis "Deac" Charles continuing as Class Secretary and Don O'Hare staying on as Class Agent. "Although I assumed the C lass presidency upon BRAD COGSWELL's untimely passing and had not anticipated that I would be responsible for organizing our 45th, as Reunion chairman I found it a great joy to contact so many of you and to help line up your weekend. I thank you for the opportunity, and most sincerely hope you'll plan to come back to Trinity for our 50th. You'll be with fellows who likely still share your standards, your views, and certainly many of your more memorable life experiences . Mark that date in your mind now. It's surprising how soon 1998 will c01ne around!"

NOTES

I seem to always be writing to you from a different location. In three of the last four Reporter pieces, I have penned my prose from a different venue. The good news is that the same employer is the constant. Let's hope for my family's sake that it stays that way for the long term .. .I'm much too young and not nearly rich enough to consider early retirement. As I write this, I am high above fashionable Madison Avenue on the 32nd floor on 57th Street. It's hot and steamy outside (the dog days of summer are still with us), but it's comfortable in the clouds. It's 7:15 a.m. and I have just finished my first cup of coffee. I'll try to unscramble the notes that I have taken in the. last few weeks as I have talked with several of our classmates. I spoke with JERE BACHARACH the other day. J ere has been a history professor at the University ofWashington for some years now and recently finished a five-year stint as chairman of the department. His life has been more than interesting from the sounds of it. His specialty is midEastern history and he has spent a good deal of the past several years plying his trade in the mid-EastCairo and other places. Jere says that it has been a terrific experience and he's happy to have had the opportunity. But he's also very happy to be home. Welcome back, Jere. NEIL COOGAN tells me that he and his bride have decided to smell the roses after a long and successful career with The Travelers Insurance Company.

His agreement with the company included his being eligible to consult on a less-than-full-time basis and that is exactly w hat he is doing. When we talked, Neil was working three days a week and loving it. Well done, Neil. Now you can travel to see your grandchildren in Oregon or visit your daughter who is still a student in Providence.

By the time you read this, that will have been determined. Working through the administrivia that exists in all large organizations, however, our making a deal is probably a long shot. At least we can give it the old college try. From Maryland, I got a call from BILL DE COLIGNY who appears to be in absolutely fine shape. He is having much too good a time it seems to me! Bill and Margy were about to hop off to two wonderful weeks in Greece where they will do the obligatory intellectual stuff in Athens and then go have some fun in the Islands. De Co is, as usual, doing lots of interesting things with his life. He's teaching a variety of English courses at the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore. Not a bad thing to do for guys our age, it seems to me. He's also got a bunch of grandkids, courtesy of his three daughters. Makes for a lot of birthday and holiday presents, but keeps him young. Bill is also working to prepare a course for his students in the area of telecommunications. Boy, can that be interesting. I think that I'll venture down South and audit his work. I like his drawl and I need the information. ED C IMILLUCA has become head research honcho at]. & W Seligman and Company - one of the really top places to be on the Street, they tell me. He joins DICK HARLAND, V P. senior portfolio manager, who has been there for several years now. As I have reported many times before, Ed and I share an occasional glass of personality together. Ed's daughter, COURTNEY '90, played the flute at Barbara's and my daughter's wedding last month. Courtney is one talented Trintype. Also at our fete last month were JACK and Cynthia LA MOTHE. It was really terrific getting together for such a happy occaswn.

From the City of Brotherly Love, BOBBY JOHNSON tells me th at after a regular Tuesday night of indoor tennis, h e and his cronies frequ ently slake their thirst at a local watering hole.

NOTES

Hurray! All of my moaning and groaning about the fact that I was receiving only a modest amount of news from our Class paid off with three great letters! First, FRANK ROSS KING, JR. wrote路that he has b een with B ell Helicopter- Textran for 24 years. Ross is the executive director for international marketing for Bell, and lives in the D allas/Fort Worth area. Ross tells us that h e has been in contact with some of our classmates and reported the sad and shocking news that MARTIN LE BUS died in May. I also received a long and wonderful letter from JOHN D ENSEM. John has been gainfully employed for the last 10 years in systems management at Bank of America's Technology Center in Concord, Calif., w hich is about 30 miles east of San Francisco. In the m eantime,John had the wonderful four-ye ar experience of singing in the Men and Boys Choir at Grace Cathedral. H e has become a Cathedral Trustee.] ohn remarried in 1981 and his joy ever since has b een his wife, Patricia, and her son, Alex. John's own two daughters are living in New England. John also wrote glowingly of the "Sanctuary" program in San Francisco which uni qu ely addresses the homeless problem. Thanks, John. Finally, I received a great letter from ALAN ELWELL. Alan and Renate just celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary by cycling 32 miles in one morning! You probably rem ember that Alan and R enate were married at the end of our sophomore year. They have three sons; th e eldest is married. The bicycling and mountain climbing has carried into the next generation as the Elwell's middle son, Sean, is in his fourth season o拢 leading groups into the mountains of Europe during the summer months. On a personal note, Alan reflected on his disappointment that Trinity seem s to have cut itself off in more recent years from its religious roots. As for ARTHUR MCNULTY, I am looking forward to taking two sabbatical months off from Calvary Church in order to work on a book. I had a book on preaching published in the 1970s, a theology book published in the mid- 80s, and now I am working on a book recording some of my more bizarre exp eriences as a clergyperson over the last 28 years.

I hope it will one day find itself in print ... any publishers out there looking for a.nother A Road Less Travelled? These reports are so much easier to w rite when the Class Secretary has some news!

For those of you who were not at our 30th last June, sit back and read on for all the new news about your classmates who did attend. The big n ews first: On the weekend before our 30th R eunion in Hartford, our illustrious alumni Class President was married! A bevy ofTrinity alumni and classmates w inked, sn1iled and cackled in the pews of a tiny church near Milbrook, N.Y. while VIC and Jeanne KEEN tied the knot. It was a magnificent moment in time. The reception was h eld at Zibby and JIM TOZER's country place. The flowers in the church and at the reception were stupendous, naturally. For those of you w ho have not m et Jeanne, all have agreed that she is indeed a great addition to our Class. Communication b etween the couple got off to a tenuous start, however, when Vic had thought all along that somehow they would b e in Hartford th e follow ing weekend for our 30th. Jeanne's plans for an extended honeymoon in the Caribbean prevailed with the good wishes of all those present at the reception. So, 1993 has been quite the year of change for Vic since he has also moved, antique radios, wife and all, to Philadelphia to head the tax law department of Cohen, Shapiro, et al. Vic and Jeanne's new home address is 1003 Waverly St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19174. ' These notes on our 30th R eunion began on the Friday of June 11 while Elizabeth and I began our stay in a very comfortable dorm room in the new building on Vernon Street - the new one n ext to Psi U. Early Saturday morning, I first spied BILL and Martha and young son, John, HOWLAND on th eir way to the shower together. Bill is celebrating his 27th year at Allied Signal. Dur-

ing the course of a later conversation with Bill during our Saturday "Sour Hour" befo re dinner, Bill asked me if the College had always provided such a great program for the smaller children. As I was nodding a "yes" and as three-year-old son, John, was happily popping carrots into his mouth nearby, Bill exclaimed, "Well, I guess that I never needed to notice such things until now!"Take heed all you latter-day dads out there who think that bringing your littler ones to a Reunion would be out. Au contraire! They have the time of their lives, as you will, too, at having your classmates in awe of your virili ty and patience at such an elder age. Something to ponder, Vic! In marveling at Bill's longevity at the same place in contrast to my peripatetic existence in real estate (Tozer passed on to me his Peripatetica Award at the Class Banquet), we came around to discussing w ho in the Class h ad stayed or had hidden the longest in the same company. We believe that JIM BORDEN at Chase, Hunter Harris, Beth Steel; BOB ANNING with Merrill Lynch in Cincinnati; and TOM O'SULLIVAN who is retiring from Sears in Chicago after 30 years - all tie for this record. If anyone else can claim the same statistic, plea>e let me know and I'll add you to this list. At the Saturday noon alumni awards ceremony under Bishop Brownell's shadow, CHARLIE MCGILL and DAVE RAYMOND received Alumni Medals for Excellence. Both Charlie and Dave acknowledged their Class and its spirit as the major motivational force behind their achievements for the College. During the Class Banquet on Saturday night, each classmate present was given the floor to reminisce a bit. One poignant story came from DON SMITH while wife, Paula, looked proudly on. It was Don's story of how F. Gardner F. Bridge recruited him to Trinity. He told how Gardner appeared in his small Illinois town during a giant snow storm, and Don was at wo rk in the mortuary that day w ith very little business . Gardner Bridge walked in and asked Don if he were givingTrinity any attention in his college plans and ended up by helping Doq fill out his application to Trinity right then and there. The rest is history in that Don came to Trinity as an Illinois Scholar. Don's closing comment was that he be-

lieved Gardner Bridge certainly changed the course of his life that snowy day and that he gives him full credit for having built the great Class of'63. The weekend was full of great Class togetherness and to recall all here would require a full supplement to the Reporter. Class turnout was great, especially since we all have our lives apart and much commitment elsewhere. Those of you who could not make it, we missed yo u and hope you w ill return with us soon. For those who did appear, if even for a brief moment, I have attempted to do justice by spouting forth with the following kaleidoscope of tidbits from my note pad: SCOTT REYNOLDS with his samurai robe and toothbrush at 7 a.m. Saturday on his way to the men's bathroom in the Class of' 63 dorm; KEN and Suzy SOUTHWORTH keeping me company during my note-taking those early mornings; BOB and Linda BURGER looked great and are still in Norfolk, Va.;JIM DAVISON is still with the U.S. Navy in Xtal City,Va. where he specializes in the development of batteries for Naval vessels; BOB LA MOTTE stopp ed by for lunch on Saturday from Woodbridge, Conn.; D ICK BRITTAIN "Colt" was there; CHARLIE and Pat MCGILL stayed in Smith House; PETE and Burrill HASKELL were giving us the latest news on development of a new venture backrest for the car seat; the PERREAULTs have four grandchildren; DICK GOODEN is still with C itiCorp and looks quite fit ... for a banker; LARRY and Pat ROBERTSON made the most of most of the events;Jim and Z ibby Tozer had to stay in Smith House because Jim assumed the College wo uld automatically enroll them into the C lass dorm; BILL FOX won the hunk award at the Class Banquet, elected by a committee of Paula Smith, Linda Burger and Peggy Reynolds. Wife, Sandy, was not surprised and neither were the rest of the women present. Bob Burger smiled; JOHN PITCAIRN is just about to be certified as a sports massage therapist (in Dallas);TONY and Ann SIRIANNI filled us with the excitement of their latest remodeling in Bedminster, N.J.; TOM HALLORAN, DICK ULBRICH with Deede Hurlihey, HARVEY (and Pat) THOMAS, a philosophy professor in Colchester, Conn., all made high impact but brief appearances; MARSHALL BLUME

"I can't tell you how many people have told me to get back to them when I've signed up three or four others," Mr. Kellner said. It isn't just investors' willingness to sign on that's changed. Mr. Kellner noted that it isn't as easy to get information about mergers today because "the sources are a little dried up." The A-list of hot investment bankers has been largely reassigned to other areas, he said. And the M.&A. law firms that employed other sources "are smaller, or have gone into the bankruptcy business." Then there are the M.&A. players who ran into a little trouble with the law. All in all, "there are a lot of people I can't call up anymore by dint of their being fired or in jail," Mr. Kellner said.

George Kellner: On

Risk, Adv~rsity anciEducatton I

n his office, 16 stories and a few steps east of the New York Stock Exchange, George Kellner '64 sits alertly at a conference table. Next to him a computer screen continuously flashes Big Board transactions, but he glances at it only occasionally. He gives his attention to the interview. Is he more relaxed these days, as the Times article states? "I'm more philosophical," he says, "much the same as anybody who goes from being young to middle-aged. With age comes a certain seasoning and experience, a recognition that you're not the smartest person in the world and that bad things can happen. "I think people can intellectualize adversity, but until they experience it, they really aren't as experienced as they think they are. I had a time in '87 when I almost went out of business, and that changed things. Having survived it, I think that experience was a positive one, but frankly I'd just as soon not have gone through it."

Kellner came to the arbitrage business via law. At Trinity he received a "broadbased" education, acquired an interest and appreciation for literature, discovered the game of squash, and learned from some excellent teacherscholars such as John Dando, Eugene Davis, and James Notopoulos. The latter had the greatest impact, he says. "I liked and respected him enormously. He taught a course on the Ulysses motif in literature, starting with the Odyssey and going through James Joyce's Ulysses. That was probably the best course I took in college." After Trinity, he graduated from Columbia Law School, but continued to look at "other interests and activities." While working as an attorney for Carter, Ledyard & Milburn, he became interested in securities. He earned a business degree by taking courses at night, while working as house counsel for the Madison Fund. Receiving his M.B.A. from New York University in 1973, he began work as a securities analyst for this mutual fund company. He was senior vice president of arbitrage

for Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette before starting his own firm in 1981. Over the years he has been consistently interested and supportive of Trinity, most recently as a trustee. He is an enthusiastic donor, particularly in the area of scholarships. This year the income from his endowed fund as well as his unrestricted giving to the Alumni Fund will provide financial aid and summer research support for nine students. Giving for scholarships has particular meaning for him. "I was born in Budapest, and my parents came here with me in the late '40s, after the War. My parents came from comfortable, upper-middle class backgrounds. My father had a good job as a senior person for his age at Hungary National Bank. When they came to this country, they had literally 50 bucks in their pockets. "They spent the first 10 years working very hard to get their feet in the door. They were living in poverty, but had aspirations of bettering themselves, because that's what they had experienced as younger people. "The message I got from all of this was that there isn't too much certainty in life; things can be taken away from you; but, one thing that can't be taken away is your education. If you're educated, you can probably make do anywhere at any time. That has in part given me my interest in education and my respect for education. It also accounts in some respects for my willingness to take risks and probably for my personality. "I was on scholarship during my high school years, and the fact that

those scholarships enabled me to go at a time when financially my parents didn't have the wherewithal obviously affected my thinking and made me grateful to whoever gave me those scholarships. I never knew the identity of those people who made a lot of my initial educational experience possible." Kellner met a number of the Trinity students he is aiding at the President's Circle dinner in October. Six of the Kellner Scholars joined him and his wife at their table. "It's not anywhere near as important to me to have them recognize me or even know me," he says. "Frankly, I get a lot of pleasure just out of knowing that I'm making it possible. "I don't expect the recipients to be necessarily grateful. However, when they go on in their lives, if they have the ability, I hope that they will remember how they got through college and perhaps make it possible for someone in the next generation to have the same opportunity." Kellner and his wife, Bicky, have two grown children, Peter and Catherine. In addition to the Trinity Board, he serves as a trustee of Phoenix House, Milton Academy, and on a number of corporate boards. He enjoys traveling, tennis and squash, though his games are now twice-weekly doubles matches, changed from the 25 years of daily, competitive squash-playing he formerly enjoyed. He reads extensively and eclectically, balancing "heavy duty" books like The Closing of the American Mind with fantasy science fiction. He arrives early to work at his 24-person firm and works full days, though, he says emphatically, he is "not a workaholic." Risk-taking goes with the territory of arbitrage, but, says Kellner, "I rather like the fact that when I come to work in the morning, I have some idea of what's going to happen, but I could be very surprised. My business is competitive. It requires team effort among me and my partners, but it's sort of us against the world." . -Roberta Jenckes

BILL ASTMAN moved back to Honolulu last year, after teaching math and coaching track for three years at M aui High School. H e now has sitnilar teaching and coaching responsibiliti es at Farrington High School in Honolulu . H e is still a long- distance runner. GEORGE BENT, M.D. writes, "We adopted our new daughter in Warsaw, Poland on June 24 and she arrived in Pittsburgh July 18. Communication has been a challenge, but she is a true joy." Their little girl, Kinga Margaret Bent, was born on Sept. 27, 1985. Joseph A. Hourihan, Esq. 18 Tumble Brook Cir. Somers, Conn. 06071 Class Agent: Robert F. Powell, Jr.

In 1967, the year Trinity College launched its greatest class ever into business, Vietnam, grad school, et al., there were at least two seniors on campus who were stock m arket j unki es . One fellow said, "Paradise Fruit." "Paradise Fruit?" qu eried the other. "Yeah, Paradise Fruit. They have a lock on cocoa beans some place in South America, and there's go nna be a shortage of chocolate, and wh en H ershey and M ars jump in, the stock is gonna double."The prudent investor had to sleuth hard to even find w h ere Paradise Fruit was listed - the "Pink Sheets." Using borrowed money earmarked for tuition at business school, at least one of th ese cautio us typ es bought Paradise Fruit at six bucks... and held it and held it, from six to four to five to six, all through the summer and to the day that th e business school demanded payment. The day after the school bill was paid, Hershey and Mars jumped in - it is presumed - b ecause Paradise Fruit jumped to 12 dollars. The prescient sto ck picker was ROGER DERDERIAN, now one of the coun try's renowned stock pickers and brokers. Of course, today Roger ignores the

pleadings of sp eculators and makes his clients very happy. If you are interested in w hatever happened to Paradise Fruit, after Roger sold his at 12,give him a call at 203-2402542. Since the subject ofbuying and selling stocks has been introduced, you should know that your Class Agent, JIM OLIVER, also is a trading man. (Incidentally, where does the phrase "agent" derive? Is a "class agent" like an " FBI agent?" Or is h e like those government agents in the Old West, and in modern Washington, D.C. , w ho fl eeced the folks?) Jim is still in San Diego. It is not the beautiful weather, not the tequila sunrises that keep Jim in serendipity land: it is the three-hour time change that enables him to call classmates late into the night seeking contributions to the alumni fund. If you don't want Jim to interrupt you while watching "Beverly Hills 90210," or if, with a bit of pride, you ever put "Trinity College" on a resume, send in another generous donation and make an impact. Jim is taking buy and sell orders, and hearing confessions at 619- 5446545. Our lines lit up w hen a Charlie Heckscher was testifYing on CSpan before a Senate subcommittee. T his Heckscher was an expert at spying on citizens and invasion of privacy. Sensing a competitor, since invasion of privacy is the sole role ofYour Secretary, I immediately placed a call to the breezy coastal town of Portsmouth , N.H. W hat a relief it was to find that the real C HARLIE HECKSCHER is in charge of purchasing for the Seabrook Power Plant. (Life is good for Charlie and Sue - into their 27th year of married bliss who have Lela (22) and Anne (19) at Bates College.) C harlie says the wheels are going, and th ere are a few other aches and pains, but his tennis is in good form .

If you have the urge to sample th e salty airs of New England, arrange a tour with C harlie by calling 603436-3874. "He Guides Pelham's 250!" shouts the h eadline of the Daily Hampshire Gazette. Above the h eadline is, in casual repose, the photo of our own MIC HAEL WEINBERG. Mike was chairman of Pelham's (Mass.) 250-year anniversary committee. The year-long events are a huge su ccess and include town m eetings, a w inter carnival, " Old Home Day," fairs,

and a town-wide chicken barbecue. In addition to helping Pelham and its citizens have a great birthday, Mike added to the dictionary. His diligent research revealed no such word su ch as "centennial," w hich m eans " 250." Now we have "quarter m.illennium," w hich 'is certainly optimistic. In his spare time, Michael is the special assistant to the vice chancellor for research and dean of the graduate school at the University of Massachusetts. Additionally, Mike is involved w ith planning and funding research for the university. After Trinity, Mike earned his master's degree in American history at Columbia. Mike and his wife, Claudia Vander-H euvel, have two bright and energetic children, daughter, Abbie, 15, and Kenneth, 9. The Daily Hampshire Gazette reports on and on how Michael's skills made the Pelham 250-year party a winner. Now if you wo uld like a detailed history of Pelham's last 250 years or of Mike's last 49 years, then call him at 413- 2537513 . Suzy SCHEINBERG, in her charming Georgian drawl, gave a lot of dirt on her husband, and our classmate, PAUL. Unfortunately, the College editors of this column, although each is an ex-employee of sleazy tabloids, recoiled at w hat Suzy revealed . What we can say is that Paul is th e leading pulmonologist (a lung man) in Atlanta. They have three handsome boys, David, 14, Jacob, 13 and Daniel, 11. Soccer, tennis, the Falcons, the 1996 O lympics, and the Braves dominate life.

If you want to get the true, unprintable story on the Scheinbergs, call Suzy at 404-396-0520 . Believe it or not, Tonga 路in the South Pacific has 80,000 people living on 40 islands.

LARRY SLUTSKY was first. Although YOUR SECRETARY managed to sign his name first on the sign- up sheet at our 25th Reunion, Larry actually got here the earlier, having com e half-way across the country from Kansas. With 97 or 98 classma tes in attendance, I am told we set some kind of record! Our president, LARRY ROB ERTS, developed a severe sinus infection soon after his arrival in Hartford, and was not able to make it to the College. In 1988, Larry was elected president for life. In ending up at a hospital, Larry was not trying to get out of that office. At any rate, GEORGE BARROWS, w ho happens to be a pathologist, refused to issue a death certificate, and Larry's status as president was confirmed at the Class meeting on Saturday,June 12. BENNETT GREENSPON was reelected vice president and I will continu e as your secretary. A recent call revealed that Larry Roberts is in good health, and he sends his best wishes to everyone. George Barrows, as Class Agent, did a first-rate job in taking over in Larry's absence, and must be given credit for putting together the Class " bio " for th e excellent Reunion book. STEVE PETERS, w ho has been sharing the Class Agent duties with George, will be taking over that j ob. We thank George for all the good wo rk he has done as Class Agent in recent years . ALEX KAIRIS, who came in

from London, England, won the award for traveling the longest distance.JOE MCKEIGUE 's wife, Jean, received the women's golf award. Those classmates who were able to make it in on Thursday were treated to a Connecticut River cruise that evening. It was an enjoyable kick-off to a b eautiful weekend. During the course of the weekend, several of our classmates were part of the Reunion program. DENNIS FARBER's photograp hic art was on display in the Austin Arts Center, and Dennis was on hand for part of the time to conduct a tour of his work. On Friday afternoon, DAVID BORUS, the College's dean of admissions and financial aid, conducted a discussion of the admissions process. And on Saturday afternoon, PETER ALSOP delighted all reunioners and th eir families with a sing-along concert on the Quadrangle. Our C lass managed to get on the wrong side of the authorities at the Class Parade on Saturday. All the classes were told to assemble in front of the Austin Arts Center. The classes were lined up, with th e youngest n ear the front, going back to th e oldest. (At this point in our lives, 1968 is right in the middle!) Because the march was to begin with the oldest, the classes were supposed to wait their turn on the grassy area off th e pavement, and watch their elders pass by. Someone with a megaphone on the steps of the Arts Center kept yelling at us to "get on the grass!" But weren't we always on grass when we were students here? There was at least one case of mistaken identity. ALAN KRAMER walked up to BILL BARTMAN and greeted him with, " H ey, BILL BARRANTE!" to w hich Bill Bartman denied any Italian connection. There were some un expected connections, too. EMIL AN GELICA 's wife, M arion, had been at Torrington (Conn. ) High School a year behind Your Secretary. In their trip to Connecticut from Minnesota, Marion to ok Emil back to her home town, and this led to some nos talgic conversation. PARKER PROUT, also from my class at THS, was able to speak wi th Marion as well. A C lass Reunion is always full of mini-reunions, of people w ho shared the same fraternity, dormitory, athletic team, or student organization. I noticed that we had a small group of 1968 freshmen w ho

Walter Harrison '68 Walter Harrison '68 has b een named vice president for university relations at the University of Michigan. Since joining the University of Michigan's administration in 1989 as executive director of university relations, Harrison has reorganized the institution's public affairs functions to provide closer coordination between public policy and communications. He also has added a strategic planning and market research dimension to external relations planning. "He has helped to provide a unified approach to the University's external relations, and I count on him to serve as the University's chief spokesperson and to advise the leadership team," said University of Michigan President Jam.es J. Duderstadt. Harrison, who holds a doctoral degree in English from the University of California, Davis, will continue to serve as an adjunct associate professor of English at the University of Michjgan. He also serves on the board of directors of both the University Musical Society and the Michigan Journalism Fellows Program.

These included GEORGE MCCLELLAND, RIC HARD O'CONNOR, BILL POMEROY (whose daughter, Whitney, was on the student R eunion stafi), JACK ROHFRITCH and JOHNVAN DAM. I had the chance to meet GEORGE CRILE again at the Alumni Association meeting on the Quadrangle. BARRY DICKSTEIN related his adventures as the manager of a vari ety of radio stations around the country. And KEELY COSTELLO told me some anecdotes about life as a municipal judge in Ro chester, N.Y. I did not get a chance to see or meet all our returning classmates . But I was happy to have spoken to JOHN COVINGTON, RICHARD WEINGARTEN, BOB RUNDQUIST, ELRIC ENDERSBY, COL. JOE RUSSO ("Colonel" by authority of the Governor of Kentucky), DAVE C HANIN, RAY MADORIN, PAUL GOLDSCHMIDT, TERRY JONES, KIM MILES, PAUL JONES, BOB PRICE, JIM BARTOLINI, DAN GOLDBERG and SANDY ROSENBERG. The College went all-o ut for

this year's Reunion, and it was a most pleasant way to begin the sum.n1.er season. The alumni office has heard from MICHAEL LESTZ who reports that he completed the Vermont 100-nule endurance run of Aug. 1, 1993 in 22 hours and 56 minutes. His pacers were RICH RATZAN '67 and Miller Brown of the Trinity philosophy depar tment. Ratzan, who finished the grueling final 26 nules of the run, originally planned to enter this ultra-marathon as a competitor but was prevented from doing so by an ankle badly splintered during a spring training run. Hats off to Rich who, new ankle screws and steel plate intact, was able to successfully cover the ultimate miles of the race, and to Michael who at long last completely won one of these events. Lestz will be on sabbatical from the Trinity history department during the 1993-1994 academic year and will spend much of that time at Pingtung Normal University in southern Taiwan William T.

What a great 20th Reunion! DANNY KOREN GOLD, JOE MCCABE and ROBIN MESSIER PEARSON are to be commended for their fine efforts as Reunion Committee Chairs. Congratulations are also due PATTI MANTELL-BROAD, 20th Reunion Gift Chair, for her tireless efforts. We all looked on proudly as Patti presented President Gerety with a check for $58,453. Our Class was also the recipient of the Board of Fellows Bowl which is awarded to the Reunion Class which, in the opinion of the Board of Fellows, has outstanding class spirit, based on attendance, special reunion features and class support of the Alumni Fund. Robin and Joe have agreed to serve as cochairs for our 25th Reunion. Finally, it is a testimony to the excitement of the Reunion weekend (or perhaps simply that I was not fully awake at the Class meeting on Saturday morning) that I volunteered to serve as the new Class Secretary. My goal is to provide at least one update on each of you by the time of our next Reunion. Please help by sending information to either the alumni office or to my home. Warning: if you don't find us, I'm going to find you! Danny Korengold was the recipient of an Alumni Medal during the annual meeting of the N ational Alumni Association.

Summer is drawing to a close and, given the Midwest floods and East Coast heat wave, many of you may be just as happy to have a new season roll in. It must be summer vacation time because the mailbox is not exactly overflowing, but every little bit helps and here's the latest from the Class. CUYLER OVERHOLT JENNINGS writes that "I am putting in my morr ,r_ .' rears in the verdant hills of rural Roxbury, Conn., where I spend most of my time playing monster, putting my two little guys back into bed, and fantasizing about when they go to school. I'm trying to think of how Trinity prepared me for this ... While I float in my time capsule, I keep a tenuous connection to the world out there through free-lance business writing. Any suggestions for kid-friendly vacations? We could use one." That's all the news for late summer. I recently ran into MIKE GILMAN and daughters in the nearby Starbucks (coffee bar) while on my way to get a smog check for the car. Typical "upscale" Los Angeles conversation - where's the best place for a smog check on Saturdays? As a new school year starts, please think about sending a note reporting your latest trips, children, jobs, or hobbies! I look forward to hearing from you soon. Late-breaking news received in the alumni office: EADS JOHNSON writes that he and his wife, PEGGY BENGE JOHNSON '78, had their third child, a son named James Buchanan, on May 8, 1992.

As for myself, I wo uld like very much to have the Class of '8 1 occupy more copy space than in recent iss ues of this magazine. (Did yo u see the Class of '89 in the last issue? They covered about a page and a half, gosh darn it.) I realize most of us are riding the rocket of career success, racking up advanced degrees and busily procreating. Those things are certainly newsworthy, but don 't let that be the only reason you write. If you finally learned how to fix that leaky fa ucet, hey, drop me a line.

C 'mon now. All the news that I have received won't even make up one paragraph. Over the past six months I've received two changes of address . Whoopee! ! Even great writers couldn't do much with those two little tidbits of information. Since I'm not getting any help, I guess I'll have to write mostly about me. I don't spend m uch time traveling outside C hicago on business. However, in June of this year I had a one-day meeting in Dallas . As I was ge tting on the bus after dropping off my rental car, I heard someone call my name. Much to my surprise, there was VICKY LENKEIT SCANLON. Ironically, Vicky was also in Dallas (via H artford) for a one-day meeting. In August, my wife and I traveled to Detroit to attend the wedding of my college roommate, BERN DEMPSEY. Also attending were SCOTT (I feel faint) TAYLOR, and Scott's wife, ANNEMARIE BROWN TAYLOR. Even though Bern had some prewedding jitters (he forgot to shave), all went well. B ern and his new bride, Karen , started their honeymoon by going to an Atlanta Braves (Karen's favor ite team) versus Phil adelphia Philli es (Bern's favorite team) baseball game. The one bit of information that I did receive was that RUTH WATSON GILLER got marri ed in April and lives in Northampton, M ass . H er husband, Gary, is a psychotherapist working at W ing H ospital in Springfield, Mass. Ruth writes that she is working on her own "while searching for a law firm position in western Mass ." Yesterday, I received a note from RICH BERNSTEIN. Rich completed his hand and shoulder fellowship at H arvard in August of 1992. He has now joined a gro up of seven orthopedic surgeons in N ew H aven, Conn. Ri ch is happy that his schooling and training are over, as he is enjoying working in his new practice. Since my hand and shoulder are beginning to bother me because of all this typing, I guess I'd better qui t. Please feel free to write, fax 312-902-7626 or give me a call. I'd love to include news about you in the next R eporter. Steven R. Andsager 1170 Donegal Ln. Barrington, Ill. 60010 Class Agents: Susan Haff Armstrong Andrew S. Fox

Bronsky '83 -who has his office radio on East 40th Street tuned into rock music on WNEW 'whatever happened to the predictability · factor one expects from. those fixi.n g one's teeth? · And whatever happened to Muzak? ' Bronsky claims he won't even consider Muzak · ·- and his patients don't seem to mind.. He finds that they aren't concerned about other departures from tradition either- such as his long J:lair. "If my hair ever got in the way of my practice, I'd cut it," he says. 'J dori.'t know if it's good or bad, but it's me." Other things matter more, he has discovered, such as treating peo·ple well. ''Peopre only ask two q~es­ tions aoout orthodontists: Was he/ she nice? Did he/She hurt?" he says. For Bronsky; work is fun. "It's well-people medicine," he explains. "Every case is different - diagnostically, fu:nctiona:lly and aesthetieally, and every patient comes to me with different desires and expectations . There's a broad spectrum of patients to treat, from normal children and adults to severely-handicapped individuals." · Because of his midtown location, he sees lots of adults who either. couldn't afford or didr:t't . want to take th~ time for orthodontics when they were children> Now, they come to him · wanting to look and function better. , At Tri?ity, Bronsky w;as a biology major, a Phi Beta :k:~ppa rnember; a_President's.

Running the Monday Night Jazz Fest at the Iron Pony Pub and organizing the U-2·concert in 1983 (along with classmates with Ami Clymer Maron '83 and Wendy Gorlin Tayer '83) were among the experiences that strengthene<;l his abiding love of music. After receiving his B.S. with honors in bi'ology and in general scholarship, he attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry and·earned his D.M.b. degree. He followed that with an M.S. qegree and a certificate in the specialtY of or~hodontics from the UniversitY, of North Carolina at'Chapel Hill,. He:fhen received . ~ '(ell0ws'hip .to study the early orthodontic treatment of children' in Scandinavia. He appreciated, that opportunity to acquire a different perspective on orthodontics, and retains fond memories of Scandinavian · sights and people. Asked to J?.'lme Trinity's academic influences on his life, he has a long list starting with the biology department, for treating him like a member of the family - then and now - and for teaching ·hlin how to organize and to persevere. In .particular,.he mentions Professors of BiologyJohn Simmons and Richard Crawford and the late Professor of Biology james Van Stone. And, he adds, "Frank Kirkpatrick's classes .iri' religion prepared· rr:te for critical thought out in the wodd .. . And I often quote Eugene· Davis on ancierit history."

wedding is scheduled for October in Granby, M ass . I expect a picture for this one. ADRIENNE LOTOSKI is also getting married. Best wishes to Adrienne and congratulations to James Francis Quirk III. Also an October wedding, this one will take place in Wellesley, Mass. I was walking down the street the other day and ran into Chicago's newest entrepreneur JOHN KALISHMAN has started his own busin ess. Marketing consulting, I think. So, if you need some thinking, call John. BLYTHE BACHMANN EVERETT wrote that she is still working at The Marvelwood School in Cornwall, Conn. She was recently made chairman of the foreign language department and just last spring was appointed director of the M arvelwood Summer Program . At the time of her letter, she was very much looking forward to that big step since it was to be her first foray into administration. Blythe has ventured back to Trinity to take some students to concerts and she reports she ran into SARAH ADAMS STITT at a wedding last summer. She also mentioned that a colleague of hers at Marvelwood, HENRY WOODWARD '87, who spent a couple of years at Trinity, is teaching Latin and filmmaking. LEA SPRUANCE BEARD also wrote of her new baby girl, Jordan Lea. She was born in February (three weeks early) but Lea and Ken are both adapting well to being parents. When she's not busy with th e baby, Lea is working as a m ental health counselor for adolescents in the psychiatric division of a hospitaL Lea mentioned that she stays in touch with WEEZIE KERR, ANNIE MATHIASEN, LANEY LYNCH MAKIN and NINA PORTER.

Hey. It's m e again. Hope all's been well. We have a flurry of news on the medical front this quarter. First up are two surgeons . SCOTT SAGRAVES graduated from Chicago M edi cal School in June 1993 and accepted a surgical internship at Maricops County Medical Center in Phoeni x. Scott and his w ife welcom ed their third child - and first son - last October. DR. CRAIG CURRY and NADINE CANCELL were married in December 1992, and now live in New York City. Nadine is a senior vice president at Kidder, Peabody; Craig graduated from N ew Jersey M edical School last spring and began a residency in general surgery at Cornell M edical Center/New York Hospital in July 1993 . TRACY MASTRO CROFT is not a surgeon (m aybe there are a few things she'd like to cut out ... ) but she is hanging out at a hospital. Tracy earn ed an M.B.A. in h ealth system s administration from Union College last year and is now assistant director of the Hospital Associatio n of N ew York State. Selling m edi cal devices kept MICHAEL CONNELLY among the crowd atop our "Longevity Index," but after eight years w ith Welch Allyn, a m edi cal device manufacturer, his streak ended in April 1992, w hen he became marketing manager of vascular access products at B. Braun and moved to Bethlehem, Pa. Let's shift from the realm of m edicine to insurance (although they're hot unrelated). TOM FITZ PATRI CK, another contender for the longevity title, also made a move recently. (As an aside, I find it really amazing that so many of us have worked at the same place for over eight years... what's in the coffee at these places?!) Anyway, Tom spent eight years with Chubb & Son (most recently in Tampa) before relocating to the Skagit Valley in Washington State with his wife and son to join her fami ly's real estate business . Tom is now an associate with John L. Scott-Mt. Vernon. Domesticity suits KATIE GERBER DOONAN, who writes she's been living in her home in N ewton , Mass . for two years now. ''I'm enjoying being home full-time with our 10month-old daughter, Ellen," she says.

R estauranteur JOHN WORTHINGTON is a newlywed, having married Sheri Carson in September. John is president of Harryman H ouse R estauran t in Resiterstown, Md. , a suburb of Baltimore. Only one recent grad school completion to report: SETH MANAKER earned his J.D. last spring from Western New England Law. Three veterans of my old freshm an seminar with Clyde McKee ("Politics and Oral Communications") ch ecked in this quarter. BOB FLANAGAN sends word of his growing family. A sp ecial age nt for No rthwestern Mutual Life in Westchester County, Bob welcomed his second child in June as "Baby Danny" joined two-yearold sister, Caity, in the Flanagan household. I imagine Bob and his wife, Lanie, are quite familiar with th e sickening refrain of"Barney the Dinosaur." I just want to know one th.ing: Who invented this thing, and why are so many bambinos hypnotized by him? M y

nephew drops into a sudden stupor whenever he even sees a glimpse of purple and green. Can you relate? It's amazing ...but I di gress again. Bob also notes that he volunteers with Junior Achievement and serves on the boards of the United Way of R ye, N.Y. and Friends ofTrinity Row ing. JEANINE LOONEY LUNGHAMER, another seminar alum, should also be familiar w ith Barney's "I love you, you love m e" ditty. Jeanine and hubby, JOE, welcomed their second child, daughter, Kristin-Anne, on Feb. 6, 1993. Jeanine w rites that Jo e is doing well at LunghamerCh evrolet w hile she is back to wo rk as an analyst for Comerica Bank in D etroit. A surprise phone call from MIKE DUFFY (seminarian #3) brings som e news oflong-lost class mates . For his part, Mike is a commissioner for civil rights and discrimination (I think I m angled that title, but you get the idea) in the administration of M assachusetts Gov. William Weld . Mike says

h e has regular contact w ith the governor and even traveled to Israel w ith him for a trade mission. Seems like h eady stuff to m e. Mike reports that CHRIS DOYLE, who I tho ught was a lifer at National Westminster Bank in New York, has ditched the banking world in favor ofThe Law, w hich seems like the perfect venue for the idealistic C hris.You can find him at Fordham Law, w h ere he is a second-year student. Other quick newsbites from Mike: PAUL NEWMAN is working at a bank in Dallas, LOU SHIPLEY is part of a start- up software company located in Japan, and JOHN MOLNER and his new wife are doing swinuningly in New York. If any of yo u want to expand on these brief tidbits, give me a ring. PETER MATHIEU is a papa.

western Rhode Island. The isolated land is "full of deer," he reports, and the stone walls surrounding his property were built in the 1700s. He has hired an architect to design a center colonial farm house (modern inside, he notes) and he hoped to break ground last summer. TIM WALSH and his wife visited Peter last spring to help clear the land for the builder. The Walshes were expecting their second child last summer (any news yet, Tim?). Tim is still with C hase Bank in New York. And it looks like I'll close with another medical tidbit: Peter reports that GLENN WILSON is now a dentist in Connecticut and enjoying private practice. No news yet (at least as I w rite this in late summ.er) from last quarter's "where in the wo rld" bunch. H ello ... ?! Bye. Late-breaking news from the alumni office: REX and SUZANNE RITTENBERG DYER announce the arrival of their son (see Births). He was born at Overlook Hospital in Summit, N.J. and they predict he will be a " future linebacker for the Bantams." ANDREW GRIMALDI and Wendi Lantery were married in a blizzard in Worcester, Mass. H e is working as a proj ect engineer for ACG Inc., in West Haven, Conn. and his wife is employed in customer relations with Bell Atlantic Mobile in Wallingford, Conn. They live in North Haven .

BRIAN BRENNAN and Allison, pregnant with baby #2, also joined the party along with two-year-old Callie. Brian still lives in Baltimore, works in Bethesda, and owes us a dinner invitation! Did I n1.iss anyone? Tom and I had a great time catching up with everyone. I just received a fette r from BILL PFOHL, who couldn 't wait to send news of his new baby twin sons, William Poarsh and Joshua Bramble.

H ello fellow '89ers. Welcome again to another edition of the obnoxio us and nosey secretary's gossip column. A column only for th ose with a good sense of humo r and a strong stomach for bad jokes. Well, before I start, I wanted to repo rt som e exciting news about my wonderful summer. This is th e first summer that I did not have to worry about any registrations or tests. My only worries are ge tting to court on time, meeting deadlines and getting enough sleep so I do not have to take mid afternoon naps in my office. I am actually enjoying the everyday grind of making a buck. I feel for you guys and gals who are starting your grad schools now after such freedom. Let's see ... ! w ill start with all the events that happened so far. YANI KWEE (now my cowriter) an d I had the fortunat e experien ce of seeing th e Thai playboy, A.T. (AVACHA! TAYJASANANT) and his beautiful bride, ARUN DULEEP '92 ,

tying that dreadful knot called marriage in July. '89ers in attendance at this delightful and yet "standing room only" affair were my ex-roomie, JASON MANSKE , Mr. fin ancial cons ultant of Offitbank, N .Y. ; EDMUND WONG, Mr. Khakis and O xford himself;TOH TSUN LIM; and everybody's favorite Trinity fundraising telephone solicitor and best m an, TODD GILLESPIE. Other Trinites in attendance were th e lovely and brainy SUSAN HUPFER '87 ; the Univ. of Chicago m ed student, MICHAEL PANGAN '90; the Babson M.B.A. student, KAMERON KOOCHEKZADEH '90. There were also a few others from the Class of '92 w ho were there. Let them report it in th eir own class column . This September, my co-columnist an d I will b e attending the " Laura Ashley-Brooks Brothers" wedding affair of STEPHEN FRANCIS and his darling bride, ELIZABETH ROSANO, at Trinity. Both Steve and Lizzi e are presently working and residing in that hopping but yet tiny city of Columbus, Ohio. Steve reports that he recently purchased his first house and is now in the midst of expanding his real estate. In August, Liz had a bridal shower in Old Saybrook, Conn. In attendan ce at that showe r were KATHY ELLIS, MARGARET " th e Elliot Ness of Hartford " COUGHLIN, CHANTAL BADE and, of course, Yani. They had a ball as my co-writer discovered that Chantal is currently gettin g her master's in English at TrinTrin, w hile working as a customer service rep at a software company. In September, th ey are plann in g to have another party before the wedding in the rolling hills of Maine (th ey are such the N ew England couple that we see on T.V). I am looking forward to this monun'lental affair w here I hope to see other '89ers. This time I hope they don 't put poor Yani to work like they did at th e last party. Besides at weddings, I also had the opportunity of bumping into a fe llow '89er while transversing th e streets of NYC. Recently and frequ ently, I ran into KATE DILLON, now an ex-New Yorker and advertiser. Kate, like many of us who are sick of the City, decided to pick up and move out West to Colorado to find a new niche. She left around August and should be there by now. So whoever is out there, check up on her fo r m e to make sure she's doing

well. Good luck, Kate. Recently, I got an un expected phone call from JONAH "J Ro ck" COHEN. Jonah is a neighbor of HOA KY '88 in West Hartford and reported they visit eac h other frequentl y. H e busted on m e that I was the worst b est man and that Hoa could have picked better. Jonah is still working w ith the Upward Bound program in H artford and invites other Sigma Nu brothers to call him . H e reported that RODNEY MOORE is also doing well as a teacher and coach at the Kingswood- O xfo rd Prep School (at least this is the school I thought he said). But anyway, Rod Mo is doing well as a teacher in Connecticut. H e also reported that DAVEVALZANIA was still with C IGNA and that MICHAEL MILLER was now in Massachusetts still working with CNB. Mike reported th at he attended th e wedding of CAPT. MATTHEW MAGINNISS (U. S.A.F.), and Marilyn Tansey, an engineer on the Air Force base and a graduate of Clark University. They were married in July in Lexington, Mass. In attendance at the wedding also were MARK HADDAD '91 and DAN GOLDBERG. (I think. So what if I got it w rongyou guys should have written to me.) Jonah also told me h e keeps in touch with MATT GANDAL, CHRIS LEARY and JON LEARY. One is now a lawyer while th e other is a doctor, at least that is how th e rumor goes. I also had the fortunate opportunity of receiving some letters this time. The first was from MATTHEW G. MILLER, ESQ. H e graduated from Seton Hall Law School and had passed the N ew Jersey Bar on the first shot. Congrats to you , dude. H e finished a yea r clerking with a N.J. Superior Court Judge and is now an associate with th e Parsippany law firm of Reise man & Sharp. Matt reported seeing KATE DILLON in a Hoboken club b efore she "dissed" the East for Colorado. H e also reported spending a day with NANCY COTE SULLIVAN and BILL SULLIVAN '90 in Washington, D. C. She had plans to return to Connecticut to open and manage an interior decorating business . M att also wrote that he keeps in touch with the wild man, BILL CHAREST, and the future doctor, GAIL WEHRLI. Bill is doing very well and is getting his M .B.A. at UConn while still working as a programmer at Phoenix Mutual in H artford. Gail is a m edical student

at U.S. C. M edical School in L.A. H e reported that Gail is loving every moment of it and w ishes to be a med student for life. M y second letter was from STEVEN HARROD. Steve recently moved (well it was recent when I wrote this in August) to Bangor, Maine after graduating from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (yes, the M.I.T.) w ith a master's in transportation engineering. H e is working for a trucking company and has purchased a home in Maine. H e thinks he is in love and is planning a slow and growing relationship with his main( e) squeeze. Get it, main and Maine? AHHH, I've been in the law books too much . Steve reports that he heard from MASSOUD AMIRI, the Persian prince of electronics. M ass had finished business school in Japan and was heading back to Britain. Hey M ass, send me a line sometime, all right? You 're such an international kind of guy that it is impossible for me to send something to you . M y third letter is from MELISSA FERGUSON. She reported that she graduated from th e American Graduate School of International M anagement in Glendale, Ariz. with a master's in international management and financ e. She w rote that she is now working in Houston, Texas, the last place she thought she wo uld be, with a small consulting firm. She invites all those who are in the Houston area to give her a ring. Try local information for her number; I only have her Glendale address . Fourthly, I received a letter from WILLIAM "Hank" LEWIS. Hank writes th at he is currently a Commonwealth Fellow in the University ofVirginia's graduate creative writing program where he is pursuing a master's degree in fin e arts. H e stated that previously he worked three years teaching English and coaching a two-time state champion lacrosse team at the M cCallie School in Chattanooga, Tenn. In addition, h e writes proudly that he was dwarded the UVa. Balch Prize for the best short story by a graduate student. H e also h ad two of his plays produced in Iowa and Orego n. If anyone wants his address, he can be reached at: 208 15th St., SW, Charlottesville, Va. 22903.

ELIZABETH STEINHAUSER writes from Surrey, England, where sh e is a national account manager at Procter & Gamble (HABC), Ltd. She is leaving England on an international assignment to Sweden for two years . Her new title will be associate sales manager. DAVID COPLAND has moved to Boston where he is attending law school at Boston University. The alumni office received a letter from KRISTEN WOHADLO who has been living in San Francisco since graduation. She is in her second year oflaw school at the University of California at Berkeley. She writes, ''I'm enjoying law school (strange but true) and feel as though I've made a good career choice for myself. I'm looking forward to interviewing for jobs for next summer because it will be nice to earn some money for a change. I spent this past summer studying law at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. There are so many exciting changes happening in Eastern Europe these days, it's wonderful to be able to witness it first hand." The alumni office has also learned that JENN HILLMAN '92 and SAM POTTER, who were married in June (see Wedding photo), are living in North Providence, R.I . Sam is working at the Slater Mill Museum and substitute teaching at the Gordon School. Finally, my new roommate, JENNIFER HORESTA '91, is a legal representative in the legal department at Putnam in Boston. We welcome everyone to come visit our new abode in Brighton!

Hello everyo ne! Not much has happened to me since the last Reporter article and I haven't heard from many people, so it looks like this will be a short piece. Send me mail! DEB DWORKIN wrote to me in July to anno unce that she is leaving her post in the alumni office and moving to Maine wi th ERIC BRAITHWAITE w ho will be attending law school at the University of Southern Maine. KAREN ISGUR '92 will replace Deb at Trinity. Deb also gave me路an update on Hartfqrd area news: CORRIE FOSTER's term as community outreach coordinator at Trinity also came to an end this summer and TARA LAWSON (soon to be, if not already, married to C HUCK GILL) will be taking over that position. SUSAN ERICKSON is working toward a master's in English at Trinity and working at th e Library. BERNIE LONGBOY is wo rking in the admissions office, also at Trinity. STEVE WILLARD and SUE MUIK both work at Connecticut Yankee Nuclear Power Plant and have been sharing an apartment in Middletown . PATR ICK BAYLISS is working

Deb also told me that TONI ORAM and BEN HOWARD '92 are married and living happily in Hartford. I ran into PETE PAPADOPOULOS and KIM PETERS at a re cent performance of "The Nields" (featuring our own KATRYNA NIELDS with her sister and brother-in-law). Pete just finished writing a book (many congrats!) and Kim is in school in Connecticut. I heard that INGRID BOONISAR is in Boston pursuin g her master's in education. In case yo u haven't heard, she and KIRK FITZSIMMONS '90 are engaged and will be getting married next summer. Congratulations, Ingrid! ROBIN HALPERN supplied me with some news, as usual. She is a great source! Her brother, ANDREW, has left H artford and is back in Maine now, taking classes. This summer, Robin and Andrew ran into ANN NEWMAN in a restaurant in Newport, R .I.

H ey there! I'm back again! Did you miss me? Well, I've been right here in H artford. As I am writing to all of yo u, summer is ending (remember: there's a huge time gap between when I w rite and when you read, so bear with me!) and I'm gearing up for law school classes once again . Believe it or not, I am actually looking forward to getting back to the grind, after a nice, relaxed summer, in whic h I go t to see tons of old college chums, and hear tons of old college gossip. Where to start ... I'll start with J 0 MARIE RUCC I, since I left her out of the last article (sorry,Jo), who is currently working as a service coordinator at Management Search, Inc. in East H artford. Jo Marie loves her work and, keeping in character, is extremely dedicated and is constantly slaving over her desk beyond the call of duty. I don't get to see Jo too often , despite the lack of distance between us, but I did get to catch up with her at JENN MURPHY's summertime bash at her famil y's cottage in Colchester, Conn. A fine time was had by all (although I am upset that I did not get a chance to visit the wo rld famous Colchester Bakery!) . There were plenty of '92ers there and I got lors of gossip (some of which I won't print!). Jenn is still commuting to New York every day for her job at a pharmaceutical company. PAULA CINTI made the trip up from Philadelphia, where she's working at a hospital this summer, before heading back to the M edical College of Pennsylvania for her second year. BEE BENNETT and AMY C HIODO hailed from New York.

Bee is finishing up her job at a law firm and relaxing a bit before starting Hofs tra Law this fall. Amy is still working at MOMA, and is thinking about grad school. Andersen Consulting was wellrepresented at Jenn's house : both KATHY KIMBALL and DAVE SHAPIRO were there, partying it up. Kathy is still working very hard in Hartford and living in Rocky Hill. Dave is in Stamford, also working hard and swimming in his spare time. H e was very reluctant to give me any news for Class Notes, but I threatened to pdnt nasty things abo ut him, so he caved. STEPHVOROS was around too. She confirmed Dave's report that ENRICO BROSIO is still in Stamford working for Deloitte and Touche (S teph works in the same building) but Enrico may be assigned to Atlanta soon. KAREN ISGUR filled me in on a changing of the guard over at the alumni office. DEB DWORKIN '91, w ho diligently served as our Class Adviser during our final year at Trinity, is moving to Main e, and she will be missed. And w ho better to take her place than Karen? Congrats, Karen! We know you'll do a great job as the new assista nt director of alumni relations. And of course, Karen will be far too busy to continue her duties as Class Agent, so rumor has it that JOHN NILAND's new partner in crime will be RACHEL BALLARD (who's living in Boston with LAURA CREASEY). John is also in Boston, where he recently started a new job and is sharing an apartment with DAVE GOLAS. Dave starts at New England Law School this fall. CAMPBELL BARRETT wo uld have been at Jenn's but he was busy interning down in D.C. and working part-time after having finished his first year at American University Law School. We missed you, Cam.pbell! I made it up to th e Cape once this summer, and got to hang out with C HRIS BEATON at his family's place in Chatham. IAN FINDLAY and NICHOLE PARDO were there, as well. They are all still living in Boston: Chris and Ian are working hard in the private sector and Nichole is heading back to grad school at Boston University. We went out and had fun. It happened to be the highlight of my summer, if only for the fact that we were rubbing elbows with a celebrity: yes, Dan Cortez (a.k.a., the annoying Burger King Man and the MTV sports guy) was


CLASS

hanging out at the bar in Chatham. Aren't you all j ealous? Anyway, it was great to see Chris and co., and I hope the next time I visit they can give me some more interesting news for Class Notes. '92ers gearing up for grad school include ANN REUTTER who, last I heard, was studying for both the MCATs and the GREs (better yo u than me, Reutter!). STEVE BURGESS is also studying for the MCATs . ELLEN MCCUSKER recently moved to Boston and has been applying to law schools . DREW KAMALIAN is taking classes at Northeastern towards an M.B.A. and master's in accounting. CRAIG BRAMLEY and KIM SIMMONS are studying at the University of Minnesota: Craig's at the law school, and Kim's working towards a graduate degree in sociology. CYNTHIA NAHABEDIAN is starting grad school at Rutgers University this fall. She'll be working towards getting her master's in criminal justice. (Still playing the oboe, Cyndy?) NICK SIMS finished up his first year at the school oflaw at Howard University and spent the summer clerking for a law firm in Memphis. ALLISON PICOTT is at law school in Pittsburgh. BRIAN CLAUSSEN and MATT GOLDSCHMIDT are heading back to UConn Med School this fall. Brian spent the summer interning in family practice and Matt had an internship at Hartford Hospital, and did some running in his spare time. They live together in West Hartford. I was thrilled (note : my life is pathetic) to actually receive letters and postcards from some of you! CELESTE SNOW wrote me the nicest note: she's living and working in Nashville, Tenn., and sound very happy. She works as an account executive at Retail Marketing Concepts, which does visual merchandising for retail stores, and she also spent a season as an assistant volleyball coach. Celeste mentioned that she vacationed with LAURA MACDONALD, who has just started grad school at UConn. If there is anyone in the Nashville area, look Celeste up! Thanks for writing, 路celeste. I also got a postcard from South Africa, where RON IRWIN is teaching English to disadvantaged children. He was in Johannesburg, but planned to move to Cape Town in November to get a master's in literary studies at the

University there. Ron also mentiOI"led that he has seen WANDY MOTHUDI. Small wo rld! Thanks for the postcard, Ron, and keep 'em coming! Other '92ers doing the international thing include SARAJO WAYNE, who spent som e time in Moscow recently, working for her brother's company, editing business documents and fund packages for investors. And MARIE ELENA RIGO spent most oflast year teaching at the Latin department and interning at the Arts Center at the American School of the Hague in the Netherlands. More news from the alumni office: CHRIS WEISS has written that he is living in Massachusetts, working for Lehman Brothers in Boston. SARAH HARRIS is a customer service manager at Bushwacker in N.YC. TRACY TOBIN is also working in New York, and returned to Trinity to work Reunion Weekend this past June, along with ALI RIVERS. Ali recently spent a year in Vermont working as writer John Irving's assistant, and she now has a job at a publishing company in New York. CLA IRE SUMMERS BROWN has left her job at the registrar's office and she and her husband, CHRIS BROWN '90, are moving to Long Island. Chris will be working at the Merchant Marine Academy there. Another bride, another groom, another sunny honeymoon ... Quite a few members of the Class of '92 have been tying the knot lately! DEBRA MATASAVAGE and BENJAMIN CARVALHO were married last May and now live in Hamden, Conn . Debra is a legal assistant at a firm in New Haven , and Benjamin works at BristolMyers Squibb as a research associate. LYNN HINKEL wrote in to share the happy news that she married Derek Cowburn at the Trinity Chapel last May. CRISTINA FISCHER (who is at the Yale School ofSacred Music), CAMMY JOHNSTONE (who'll start Yale Law in the fall) and JENNIFER HILLMAN were all in the wedding party. The happy couple honeymooned at Disn ey World and now live in their new house in New Jersey. Lynn has been working since graduation at The Prudential Insurance Co., doing labor and employee relations. Lynn also informed us that Jenn Hillman and SAMUEL POTTER '90 were married at the

NOTES

Chapel this past June. Jenn lives in Providence, R.I., where she works for Cadre as a software engineer. Also in the wedding department: CHRIS FOSTER, w ho is at grad school at Rochest~r University, and PAMELA O'KANE '93 have set their wedding date for May of 1994. Congrats! The alumni office has heard from PETER ALEGI who spent six months in South Africa teaching physical education and coaching soccer, softball and basketball. He has entered the African studies program at Yale Graduate School this fall. O.K., so I now know of even more '92ers who live in Connecticut and neglect to make any attempt to contact their devoted Class Secretary (that's ME, guys!). And they call themselves Bantams! Rumor has it that CHRIS OSTER is living in Bridgeport. And PENNY CARPIO lives in Norwalk and is reportedly a regular at The Art Bar. Come on guys, drop me a line! And that goes for those of yo u who aren't in Connecticut, too! Much thanks to those who have w ritten, and keep it up. See you all at Homecoming '93!

Many ofTrinity's most recent graduates have been enjoying a productive and restful summer, while others immediately tackled the pressure of the working world. I, for one, have spent the months since our graduation struggling to assemble the finest collection of Class Notes possible. Unfortunately, many classmates w ho are pursuing exciting careers and fascinating hobbies have failed to contact the alumni office, and thus their exploits remain unnoticed. In fact, only three have taken the trouble and have thus failed to escape my attention. Class President ASHLEY GRAVES writes that she is the membership development coordinator at the New York State Hospitality and Tourism Association in Albany, and that she can be found at home in Saratoga Springs. QliANTI DAVIS is working in admissions at Loomis-Chaffee in Windsor, Conn., and AMY

TATKO, in a surprising departure from her undergraduate pursuits, is working for the American Collegiate Consortium's Russian exchange program at Middlebury College as a program assistant. The other way you might find your name listed in these hallowed columns is by writing to me, your diligent C lass Secretary, calling me, or being mentioned in gossip that happens to find its way to my ears. PIPER SKELLY and his cadaver have just started the fall semester at N.Y Medical College in Valhalla, N. Y DAN SCANLAN spent the summer as an English literature instructor at his alma mater, Portsmouth Abbey, in Bristol, R.I., and is now musing over w hat to do next. PRASANT SAR decided to make a move from C hapel Hill to Boston and he can now be found sharing an apartment w ith six previously unknown roommates (Seven's Company?). He reports that in Beantown, Trinity alumni are common, whereas occupations are scarce. Also, his bagpipe lessons are progressing well. JENTHORNTON became a Bostonian this summer as well, and has just finished her program at Radcliffe and is now in the market. I spent a few days in that city myself, and randomly bumped into ANNE LYONS on one occasion and into an underclassman, who shall remain nameless, on another. While I was there, SUSAN OLSEN took me on a tour of the Boston Beer Works before returning to her accounting program at Coopers and Lybrand in Hartford, where she shares an apartment with KIM D'AMICO about 16 feet from Trinity's campus. Not exactly a bold move, but a move nonetheless ... JAY AKASIE, keeping up the skills he honed at the Tripod, has become a reporter for the InquirerMirror on the island of Nantucket, using his job as a thin veil to cover for his frequent fishing forays and other less printable pursuits. Albany, N.Y has always been home to NICOLE CRISCIONE, and it will remain her home a little longer, now that she is starting Albany Law School. She recently spent a fun weekend w ith Susan Olsen, KATE SHAFER, and Class of '92 graduate KATIE KWAK. Nicole reports all kinds of neat information: PAVINEE SAGUANSATAYA is finishing her second semester wo rking towards her master's in social work at Smith College, and will be moving to New Haven for

the " hands on" portion of her edu cation. TIM " H ellfire" WOODCOME has spent the summer working in Bar H arbor, and his former roommate (and, in fact, mine as well), MIKE JOLIE, has returned from an extended tour of Europe. DAVID BALTAZAR, w ho won the engineering prize for his work in developing an evil robot army, is starting at UVa.'s school of engin eering, and C HRIS RAU is wo rking on his master's in education at Springfield College. (H ey isn't that where the "Simpsons" live? I wonder if the Raus know them ...) Cavity Creeps b eware CRISTIN KEARNS is about ready to start dental school at U C. LA. (why th e h eck would anyone want to go to California?), and NICOLE MAUTER is headed for an M .B.A. program with M errill Lynch in New York. Ea rl ier in the summer, Nicole drove out to Sun Valley, Idaho with W ILL MACON, w h ere they joined Cristin and ASHLYN HILEY at the home of Class of '92 veteran, ANDY FIRTEL Will and Ashlyn later drove out through San Francisco before h eading back East, and managed to miss out-oftown m e by about 24 hours. Former varsity lightweight coxswain RACHEL TOTMAN is working at th e Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and living in Brooklyn. Former women's crew captain AMY MORSE was, at last report, working for a spot on the national team in Boston, and former Class of '93 member, LUKE MCCARTHY, is doing the same, except that he's trying for the men's tean1. KATIE ABEL wr ites that, after spending the summer in Vail, Colo. , she will be living and working in New York with LISA VARGAS, and that cohort, EMILY MURPHY, w ill be near at hand . So that's where we stand. I, for one, have thus far managed to avoid most anything productive, and have w hiled away my summer happily with a trip from my native West Coast to the East, a stay at the b each down so uth, and a backpacking trip in the Sierras. I am living at home in San Francisco, so if you wo uld like to share your su ccesses or fa ilures w ith th e rest of th e Class of 1993, please write and let me know what you are doing. Until next time, take care of yo urselves, and don't grow up too fast. Four years ago at this time, we were looki ng forward to the

It seem s as though the dreaded day has arrived: a deadline w ith little information to pass on. My usually fruitful sources have dispersed for the summer. At the same time, the summer issue of the R eporter containing my earnest appeal to you for news has not yet been distributed. I know all of you would have responded overwhelmingly to that plea, h ad you only had it in hand. Fortunately, everything is n ever lost, and we do have some choice news from a few of our IDP alums.

The Charitable Remainder Unitrust

The Charitable Remainder Lead Trust

You irrevocably transfer assets (cash, appreciated securities, real property) to Trinity. During the trust term Trinity invests the assets and pays you, or another designated beneficiary, an income for life often at a higher rate of yield than you were receiving from the securities. The trust is actually designed to provide you a growth of income over its life span. When the trust term ends, the assets pass to Trinity. For example, if you are 58 years old, in a 31 % tax bracket on income, and establish a trust with a stock gift valued at $100,000,

You make a gift but retain your property for your family. If this sounds akin to having your cake and eating it, too, a lead trust does just that. It allows for the gift to Trinity of the income interest earned by the trust principal for a specific term of years. After the term ends, the principal reverts to the donor or, preferably, to a child or grandchild. And, the trust appreciated principal goes to your beneficiaries free of estate and capital gains taxes! As frosting on the cake, you earn a tax deduction for the value of the income given to Trinity. For example (given the same assumptions as in the Unitrust example),

• you and your spouse will receive a total of$312,977 over your expected lifetimes; • your charitable deduction will be $19,242; • you save $14,000 in capital gains taxes; • your eventual estate tax savings could be as much as $224,949 under current law; and, • you get the pleasure of making a significant gift to Trinity.

• your charitable deduction is $71,794; • you save $14,000 in capital gains taxes; • the trust assets benefit from the same expert management that the College's endowment enjoys; • after 20 years your beneficiaries receive $148,348, free of estate and capital gains taxes;

• during the term of the trust Trinity receives $166,040; and, • you save approximately $217,286 in estate taxes.

Why Trinity? Think of Trinity as a bank with endowment assets totaling over $176,575,264 and with an annual operating expense in excess of $50,000,00. Trinity is proud of its prudent stewardship that has resulted in 23 consecutive years of balanced budgets. Your trust is secure here on campus.
