The Fletcher School continues to be that great hope at a time when nations are tested with a new financial crisis, as well as by tension between governments, cultures and religions... There is much work to be done, and the role of the Fletcher education has never been more relevant. In 1933, the revered historian and scholar of international relations James T. Shotwell addressed the first class of students at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy with a lecture titled, “The Task of Diplomacy Today.” History tells us that at this particular time, seventy-five years ago, diplomacy was in demand, with Hitler and the Third Reich on the rise and Japan expanding its position in Asia. Similar to today, the world also faced economic crises, most notably with the United States’ Great Depression, which was at its height when Fletcher came into existence. In many ways, the School’s founding was an act of great hope in a time of deep despair. The Fletcher School continues to be that great hope at a time when nations are tested with a new financial crisis, as well as by tension between governments, cultures and religions. Hope springs from the collaboration we are witnessing as countries avoid isolationism and work together to weather the financial and ideological conflict storms. There is much work to be done, and the role of the Fletcher education has never been more relevant.
and students on our seventy-five-year history, including insight from one of our own, German Ambassador to the United States Klaus Scharioth, F74. In his keynote speech, Scharioth offered a European perspective on the financial condition that has rocked the global economy to its core. As is true of all institutions across the nation, Tufts, and Fletcher, is not immune to the current economic turmoil. As financial markets slide downward and remain volatile, The Fletcher School finds itself in a situation where we must make an even greater effort to set priorities and allocate scarce resources prudently. Now, more than ever, we need the strong support of all Fletcher alumni and friends in The Fletcher Fund and our capital campaign to assure the School’s continuing success in these difficult times.

Fletcher Looks Ahead to the Future As we celebrate and reflect on 75 years of preparing the world’s leaders, we eagerly look ahead to the future in the form of Fletcher’s impressive 2008 incoming class. An academically and professionally accomplished group of individuals, the 248 newest members of the Fletcher community were selected through a highly competitive process from a pool of over 1,600 applicants, and include students enrolled in our newest degree programs: the Master of International Business (MIB) and Master of Laws in International Law (LLM). The inaugural MIB class is diverse, talented, and experienced. They have demonstrated deep international exposure, solid academics, and proven professional skills. More than two-thirds of the class has significant private sector experience from companies including ExxonMobil, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Booz Allen Hamilton, Proctor & Gamble, and Royal Bank of Scotland. The remaining third comes from the public sector, non-profits, and the military. On the whole, the MIB students are looking for truly international careers that span the public and private sectors.
officers, returned Peace Corps volunteers, and lawyers, to journalists, intelligence analysts, community organizers, and marketing directors.
In August, Fletcher also welcomed the inaugural LLM class, consisting of sixteen dynamic students who share impressive credentials and a commitment to international law. The class is geographically and professionally diverse, with students from twelve countries, representing the continents of North and South America, Asia, Europe and Africa. Their work experience encompasses academe, public international law firms, non-governmental organizations, judicial clerkships, and ministries of foreign affairs and trade.
Overall, the incoming class is made up of students representing six continents and fifty-seven countries, including: Nepal, Rwanda, Iran, Afghanistan, and Colombia. They range in age from twenty-one to forty-eight and have earned degrees from top colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad. While they have unique backgrounds and individual goals, they share a common commitment to engage in international affairs and an aspiration to make meaningful and important contributions to the world. Only halfway through their first semester, the 2008 incoming class has already begun to engage, challenge, and enrich the Fletcher community.
MIB and LLM students join the newest members of our Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy (MALD), mid-career Master of Arts (MA), and Ph.D. programs who come to us with a wealth of academic, professional, and life experiences from a varied array of disciplines, industries, and sectors. They have studied fields such as political science, engineering, business, and history and held positions ranging from diplomats, military

Keeping Murrow’s Legacy Alive at Fletcher By Rebecca POLLARD Pierik
The students filed into the dining hall for the meeting, covered from head to toe in traditional burkas, except for their faces, which, in keeping with tradition, they revealed within university walls. “ While leading a recent tour of the Middle East, former ambassador to the Middle East and Tufts professor William Rugh brought 100 American visitors to lunch with students at a women’s college in Dubai. The students filed into the dining hall for the meeting, covered from head to toe in traditional burkas, except for their faces, which, in keeping with tradition, they revealed within university walls. “At first sight, the students probably confirmed stereotypes held by the American visitors just because of how they were dressed,” says Rugh. However, as the Americans mingled with the female students, many of them began to see that these students did not fit the stereotype. “The young women were bright, assertive, very focused on education and careers—little like the Americans expected,” says Rugh. After the trip, one of the American tourists called Rugh to say the experience had changed his life, and that he wanted to know what he could do to help Americans to understand the complexities of Arab culture more fully. After forty-one years as a diplomat, educator and author, Rugh has observed again and again how stereotypes and misunderstandings dissolve in the face of this kind of cultural exchange. An ambassador to the Middle East for thirty-one years, Rugh worked in nations such as Qatar, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia to build understanding of U.S. foreign policy. Then in 1995, he took over leadership of AmidEast, a private company that provides cross-cultural education for Americans and Middle Eastern people. Now, as the new Edward R. Murrow Professorship of Public Diplomacy at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy—a position endowed during Beyond Boundaries: The Campaign for Tufts—Rugh plans to continue his work bridging cultural divides though education. He says he feels especially honored his title carries Murrow’s name. “I started my career as a junior officer with the United States Information Agency in 1961—the same year that Edward R. Murrow became the agency’s director,” recalls Rugh of the agency that was charged with communicating the official U.S. position to nations abroad. “I really admired him. We all did. He is recognized as the best director the agency ever had.” Widely acknowledged as one of the most influential
journalists in our country’s history, Murrow also made significant contributions to public diplomacy that are less well-recognized, according to his son, Casey Murrow. “Most people know my father for his career in journalism, but biographers often gloss over his later years as director of the U.S. Information Agency,” says the younger Murrow, who was only eight years old when his father took on Senator Joseph McCarthy in a series of televised reports that helped bring about the end of the “Red Scare.” “When President Kennedy asked him to lead the Information Agency, he felt it was his duty to his country and a critical point in his career. He wanted to make the agency’s work more about reporting and less a public relations venture.” To extend his father’s legacy of excellence in public diplomacy, Casey Murrow joined with alumni and friends of the Fletcher School to initiate the professorship. He says Rugh, with his lifelong dedication to bridging cultural divides through education, is uniquely qualified to hold this position. “My father was deeply committed to educating the public, and I’m thrilled that the Fletcher School is leveraging its resources to train tomorrow’s leaders in public diplomacy,” says Casey Murrow, who himself heads an educational nonprofit in Putney, Vermont. The Edward R. Murrow Center at the Fletcher School holds the senior Murrow’s complete records and his library, and provides ongoing programming geared toward advancing the field. The younger Murrow states, “I think my father would have been honored to know that his work continues to have the deep influence that it does.”

Edward Murrow’s Legacy and the Real World Broadcast News Remarks by Harry Radliffe, F73 given at the Murrow 100th Anniversary Conference: “Public Diplomacy and International Citizenship” Tuesday, 15 April 2008 Good afternoon Dean, members of the faculty, students, guests, It’s a real pleasure to be with you here and to be a part of your annual forum on Murrow. Quite frankly, it’s also a relief to be out of my office in New York. You may have noticed a lot of news reports recently speculating, again, about the future of the organization that employs me [CBS]. If it seems that CBS News is in perpetual upheaval, one explanation is the inordinate amount of time our colleagues and competitors in the press spend discussing and speculating about CBS News. There’s a direct correlation to the reason we receive all that attention and the reason we are all here. It boils down to one man: Edward R. Murrow. CBS News receives an inordinate amount of attention because News is the house that Ed Murrow and his band of brothers (and one sister) built. It’s a house that, with the exception of two years, has been my home for my entire professional career. If it seems that our house is a little unstable, I would not deny it. We have our disagreements, and a habit of airing them openly and loudly. Animal House comes to mind—or some sort of dysfunctional family. Some of my colleagues say that the factional warfare at CBS News resembles, in part, the war in Iraq. Over there, you have the Shia, the Sunni and the Kurds. Over here, we have our factions, too. So, in the interest of full disclosure, I should tell you that I’m here as a representative of the Kurdish faction of CBS News—also known as 60 Minutes. But if you can get past all the titillation and sensationalism that inevitably accompanies a medium that reaches into millions of people’s homes, there’s a better explanation for the focus on us. The spotlight on the goings on at CBS News is part of a broader discussion about the future of journalism itself and the future
“The spotlight on the goings on at CBS News is part of a broader discussion about the future of journalism itself...” of broadcast journalism in particular. These are interesting and dangerous times in journalism. The annual report on The State of the News Media describes a “new era of shrinking ambitions,” “fragmentation,” and oversupply with “too many news organizations doing the same thing.” The old business models
6 FLETCHER NEWS Fall/Winter 2008
are dated. Traditional advertising is drying up, and people are still trying to figure out how to make money on the Internet. We are probably in the midst of a fundamental retrenchment in the news business. Newspapers, radio, and TV are all in turmoil as costs skyrocket. Every once in a while when I come back from a shoot somewhere, they show me the final tally of costs on my story. They’re shockingly high. At the same time, like the annual report says, there’s increasing audience fragmentation. That just means that with hundreds of channels, or choices available to you, it’s not surprising that there aren’t as many eyeballs watching CBS, NBC and ABC as there were when there were only three networks. Ah, the good old days. None of this is new. These trends have been developing for years. The dilemma is how to solve it, and the future is anything but clear. The attempt to chart a path to the future has inevitably led to conflict and major soul searching, especially regarding broadcast news. You have to remember that the networks are a business, driven to earn profits. While a particular news program can be profitable, there’s a natural conflict between news gathering and the bottom line. No one outlined the issues with greater clarity than Ed Murrow. In a speech to the Radio and TV News Directors Association, Murrow laid out the dilemma. In my opinion in what is the most important speech in the history of broadcasting, Murrow described television this way. He said, “This is instrument that can teach. It can illuminate. Yes, it can even inspire.” He went on to add, “But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise, it is merely wires and lights in a box.” Basically, he’s saying it’s up to us. Murrow made that speech fifty years ago. He could have written it yesterday. So you see this debate’s been going on for a while. I was originally asked to speak to you about Murrow’s world at CBS News. I wish I could. I wish I could have been one of “Murrow’s boys.” The news organization they built from scratch lured me and many of my colleagues to broadcast journalism in general and to CBS News in particular. But by the time I joined CBS News, Murrow was long gone, driven out by the same dilemmas and frustrations we still deal with today. But Murrow’s legacy permeated the CBS News I joined. He

was the reason I joined CBS News. He was the reason I got into broadcast journalism. He believed that news was a sacred trust, that news reported accurately and fairly could not only inform, it could change things. News and information were powerful. They still are. CBS was the only place I wanted to work. I used the word “joined” a moment ago when I mentioned my beginnings at CBS. I used that word intentionally. For me, and many of my colleagues, working for CBS News—the house Murrow built—was more than a job; it was a calling. “Joining” CBS News was like joining the Church. Journalism was our religion. Murrow’s DNA flowed through the veins of CBS News. He was the north star, our guiding light. When I started and for many years after, some of the original members of his team—Charles Collingwood, Eric Sevareid, Douglas Edwards and Richard C. Hottellet—were still working there. Walter Cronkite had not been one of Murrow’s boys, but he inherited the DNA and was driven by the same passions that drove Murrow. Those same passions still drive many of us. I’ve had the honor and the pleasure to work with some of the giants in the history of broadcast journalism—Walter Cronkite, Harry Reasoner, Peter Jennings, Ed Bradley, and Mike Wallace. Steve Kroft, Scott Pelley, Leslie Stahl, and Bob Simon, my colleagues at 60 Minutes, are all driven by the standards Murrow set. I hope this doesn’t sound like some corporate PR pitch, but if you could see and hear the shouting matches that take place in our shop every day, you might be surprised. They’re not about ratings, although we all want to know if anyone’s watching, they’re mostly about journalism, language, facts, and fairness. CBS sent Murrow to Europe to be the director of talks. He got into news by accident. Casey was telling me yesterday that he was in Vienna for the Anschluss. When there was no one else from CBS to cover the events, Murrow filled in, and the rest as they say is history. Murrow hired Shira who covered Berlin, and together they covered the Czech crisis, the crisis in Danzig and the Polish corridor. Anyway most of you know what followed. Have you ever heard some of those broadcasts? Through the static of history and the poor quality of audio feeds in those days, they still send chills down my spine as I listen to them broadcasting the first draft of history. I often wonder what it would be like if Murrow was a working journalist today. Can you imagine? Bill O’Reilly, Larry King, Keith Olberman, and Ed Murrow tonight on some cable channel. No doubt Murrow would be stunned and thrilled that technology has made it possible to broadcast live from battlefields, refugee camps, conference halls, and street corners anywhere in the world. In Murrow’s day the quality was accepted. There wasn’t any alternative and there wasn’t that much competition. NBC and the old Mutual Broadcasting System were also in their infancy, just like CBS. Today, there’s more competition than anyone can reasonably absorb. I can only speculate how he’d feel about the cacaphony coming from the broadcast nets, cable channels, radio, the Internet, and YouTube. I can’t begin to imagine what he would make of the blogosphere.
Harry Radliffe, F73, CBS Producer of 60 Minutes
The fact that an ordinary American with a cell phone, a built-in mic and a camera can record a picture or a comment that can fundamentally alter the outcome of an election would certainly take some getting used to. It’s produced a kind of whiplash journalism that I’d like to think he would find distasteful. But I think Murrow would be impressed that being courageous is now routine. When he and his colleagues broadcast that report on Joe McCarthy, when they reported on Lt. Radulovich, who the U.S. government asked to repudiate his own father, over allegations that turned out to be false, when they reported on the plight of migrant workers—that was groundbreaking stuff. The risk of repercussions for them all, Murrow in particular, was real. But Murrow withstood it. Today, reporters routinely take on everything—the President, government, big business, science, and institutions, without fear. Aggressive journalism is routine. Despite all the angst about the future, we are living in a golden age of journalism. Despite obvious flaws, the quality and quantity of good reporting has never been greater. American reporters are anxious to report the world. What’s holding them back are the economic realities of that same world. The major networks are part of large corporations focused on the bottom line. It is difficult to ask them to hemorrhage money so me and my colleagues can run around the world covering stories. Hopefully, we’ll find some way to sort out the economics and construct new business models that can finance the future.

Ralph Bunche Scholarship Fund, A Collective Fletcher Effort By Rebecca POLLARD Pierik
The extraordinary legacy of Dr. Ralph Bunche—United Nations diplomat, international peacemaker and civil rights champion—is felt the world over. Perhaps best known for negotiating the end of the first Arab-Israeli war and ushering in a new era of UN-mediated peacekeeping, in 1950, Dr. Bunche became the first African American to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. The grandson of an ex-slave, Dr. Bunche endeavored to advance civil rights of African Americans, working alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and leading, with him, the historic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965.

“Dr. Bunche was a brilliant statesman and scholar. He truly believed that it was possible to use mediation to bring two sides of a conflict to common ground—whether abroad or here on American soil,” (FACA). During his time at Fletcher, Smith helped establish the Ralph Bunche Society to raise awareness about the contributions and issues of minorities and people of color to the field of international relations. Still active, the society has come to serve as a model for campuses across the country. Now Smith and the FACA, in conjunction with Fletcher dean Stephen W. Bosworth, are working to further extend Dr.

Bunche’s legacy on campus through the Ralph Bunch Endowed Scholarship Fund. Fletcher will use income from the fund to support scholarships for students of color, allowing more students from diverse backgrounds to study at the School. Smith says the Bunche Fund will help counter a troubling trend. Talented students of color, he says, are being lured away from Fletcher to programs that can offer more competitive funding packages. “I go to a lot of events for prospective students of color. The question I always hear is ‘How am I going to afford Fletcher?’” explains Smith, who holds a position as a manager in information security at Deloitte and Touche. “The financial side of graduate school concerns these students, and that is playing a big role in where they choose to go.” Along with helping more students afford tuition, Smith says the Ralph Bunche Endowed Scholarship Fund will send an important message that Fletcher recognizes that a diverse student body enriches learning for all students. “This is a scholar’s program. We plan to award the Ralph Bunche Scholarship to scholars who reflect the legacy of Dr. Bunche,” he explains. “The Ralph Bunche Scholars will be connected to the critical issues of our time, and they will connect others at Fletcher to those issues, too.” Ralph Bunche Jr., F71, a key supporter of the initiative, recalls how his own time at Fletcher exposed him to a wealth of new perspectives, thanks in large part to the diversity of ideas he encountered there. “The education I received from Fletcher was top-notch. The students in my classes came from a range of backgrounds, in terms of gender, international experience, and military experience,” says Bunche Jr., now a financial and
Fl etcher Ne w s
development consultant for countries in Africa. “This really helped me to understand people, their histories, economics, and politics. “I’m very pleased to help bring that experience to students who may not have access to it otherwise.” Bunche Jr. also says the scholarship fund is a fitting tribute to his father, who held a deep commitment to education. “My father firmly believed that education had the most important function in world, allowing people from many different walks of life to come together in dialogue,” he says. Bunche Fund supporter Karen Hastie Williams, F71, remembers Dr. Bunche from her childhood. While studying at Harvard, Bunche met her father William Henry Hastie, who was a professor of law, and the two scholars became friends and collaborators. Hastie went on to become the first African-American circuit court judge. “We were in Philadelphia, and Dr. Bunche was close by in New York at the UN,” recalls Williams. “I remember the two of them would get together frequently and organize groups focused on helping African American students develop their understanding of international challenges.” Williams says her own experiences at Fletcher gave her a solid understanding of international relations that has served as a foundation for her career. An expert in public contract law, Williams served as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and later represented victims of terrorist acts, from the bombings at the U.S. Embassy in Kenya to 9/11. She says the Bunche Fund can help Fletcher do an even better job preparing tomorrow’s leaders in international relations and diplomacy. “There is a need for Americans who are interested in diplomacy and foreign relations to have broad spectrum of experiences,” says Williams. “It’s ideal to have class members from all of over the world and from all backgrounds studying and working side by side.” Along with making a gift to the Ralph Bunche Endowed Scholarship Fund, Williams hosted a party in her Washington, D.C., home last fall to kick off the fundraising campaign. Fletcher alumni from 1964 to 2006 attended. “When Dean Bosworth asked me to join this effort, it was natural for me to get involved,” she says. “Everyone at the party was very enthusiastic about supporting it. I think we’ve hit upon a real need as well as a great way for alumni to give back to the School.” The Fletcher School is still actively seeking gifts to the Ralph Bunche Scholarship Fund.

NEW YORK China’s energy policy was the topic of a panel discussion, “Global Oil and Gas: A New Contender, China,” hosted by the Fletcher Club of New York in April. Bruce McKenzie Everett, F70 (retired from ExxonMobil Corporation and now adjunct professor of international business at the Georgetown School of Foreign Service and adjunct associate professor of international business at the Fletcher School), Sammy Buo, F74 (director of the Africa II Division in the United Nations Department of Political Affairs), and Erping Zhang, GMAP03 (director of the Association for Asian Research in New York City), discussed the implications of China’s energy policy for the region and international policymakers and businesses. Dr. Ronnie Goldberg, chief policy officer at the U.S. Council for International Business, moderated. Tarek Zeidan, F09, was selected as the recipient of the New York club’s unpaid internship scholarship in June. The $1,500 scholarship is made possible by the generosity of club members, membership fees, and event attendance. Tarek is a Lebanese national who interned at the Al Hayat newspaper’s United Nations Bureau, covering UN events for the media outlet.

Ambassador Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, permanent representative of the State of Qatar to the UN; and Daniel Levy, senior fellow and director of both the Middle East Initiative at the New America Foundation and the Prospects for Peace Initiative at the Century Foundation. Farri Cress, F70, vice president of the Fletcher Club of New York, served as moderator. This interactive session focused on some of the promises Israel and the Palestinians undertook at Annapolis and how both sides missed many opportunities to resolve major obstacles to peace. The panelists concluded that no fundamental change is going to occur in the region before 2009 and that while Annapolis was a great idea, it was too little, too late.

A Lasting Legacy How do alumni who feel indebted to a former professor express their enduring appreciation for the guidance provided within the classroom? In a generous gesture, they dedicate the actual classroom in which so much wisdom was passed down to the name of that same professor. On Monday, September 22, the Fletcher Community gathered to dedicate one of its most oft-used classrooms to a former professor who made a lasting mark on so many of his students. A beloved professor of international politics during his two-decade tenure at The Fletcher School from 1967–87, Dr. Uri Ra’anan also served as director of the International Security Studies Program and chair of the Curriculum Committee. A gift from Dr. Ra’anan’s former students at Fletcher—made in anonymity—has enabled the naming of Cabot 205 in his honor. His former students, along with former Fletcher colleagues professors Richard Shultz and Robert Pfaltzgraff, joined the Fletcher Community in welcoming Ra’anan back to the campus twenty years after his tenure at Tufts. Both Shultz and Pfaltzgraff offered their thanks to Professor Ra’anan for guiding their careers and setting a high standard of excellence in teaching. Cabot 205 served as the location for many of Professor Ra’anan’s classes, wherein his ability to draw detailed regionalized maps of the world and his passion for scholarship left an indelible mark on those who taught alongside him and attended his lectures.
Now director of the Institute for the Study of Conflict, Ideology and Policy at Boston University and an associate of the Davis Center at Harvard University, Ra’anan has authored, co-authored, edited and co-edited more than twenty-five books, and contributed to nearly twenty others. He is an expert on Soviet affairs. While his teaching days at Fletcher are long behind him, his legacy as a professor committed to both his students and his research will last, and Ra’anan’s name will continue to be spoken within the Fletcher Community and by those who remain forever grateful for his teachings.
Phyllis Oakley and Dean Stephen W. Bosworth
On August 18th, Dean Stephen W. Bosworth bestowed the prestigious Dean’s Medal upon Paul Martin, the former Prime Minister of Canada, at an event that took place at The Rideau Club in Ottawa. The award acknowledged among his many accomplishments, Martin’s work on the L20, a forum of international leaders convened to address the world’s most pressing issues. The L20 concept has become an essential teaching tool used by the last six GMAP sessions.
I have understood that Roman emperors had someone behind their chairs, whispering in their ears, “You are only mortal.” I think we have had the modern equivalent of this phrase in Iraq and Afghanistan. In other words, we have made mistakes and it is time to reassert a renewed American diplomacy based on realism, capacity matched to actions, and some humility after we have relieved the helmsman Mr. Magoo of his duties. I believe the rest of the world is waiting. I am sorry that my generation has left all of you an America not as the shining city on a hill in a prosperous and democratic world, but in a dangerous, competitive, and changing environment, with global warming, poverty, and terrorism high on the agenda. It is over to you to make it better. —Phyllis E. Oakley, F57, recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award, speaking at Fletcher’s convocation in September 2008. Fall/Winter 2008 FLETCHER NEWS 15
Fletcher’s 75th Anniversary Gala
On October 11th 2008, the Great Hall of the Jefferson Building in the Library of Congress was the setting for an event that marked the climax of what had involved more than a year’s worth of programming—the 75th anniversary of the founding of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. More than 650 members of the extended Fletcher Community walked the exhibits halls (“Exploring the Americas” and “Thomas Jefferson’s Library”), enjoyed fine cheeses, fruits and desserts, and danced to the rhythms of a 12-piece band. An evening that began with smiles, conversation and a lavish five-course dinner transitioned quickly to recognitions of achievement, great stories of past experiences and shared hope for the future.

Dr. Peter Ackerman, F69, Chairman of Fletcher’s Board of Overseers and Gala Chair, welcomed guests and discussed the school’s many new challenges and opportunities. Ackerman emphasized the need in today’s world for Fletcher’s unique offering, and spoke to the importance of new initiatives such as the Global Master of Arts Program (GMAP), the Institute for Human Security and the School’s most recent additions: the Master of International Business and Master of Laws in International Law degrees, and the Center for Emerging Market Enterprises. The podium was then turned over to Dean Stephen W. Bosworth, who bestowed the Dean’s Medal upon Ambassador
Wolfgang Ischinger, F73, for his “unique ability to create opportunities out of crises and to address the world’s most pressing issues.” Ambassador Ischinger’s extensive career of service to Germany and the international community includes positions in Washington, DC, Paris as well as several senior positions in the German Foreign Office where he went on to serve as Deputy Foreign Minister, the nation’s highest civil service post.
honor was bestowed upon Conley Tyler for her professional achievement in conflict resolution and for her role as an emerging leader in the global community.
Additionally, Melissa Conley Tyler, F96, National Executive Director of the Australian Institute of International Affairs, was named the recipient of the Fletcher Alumni Association of Washington, DC’s Young Alumni Award for 2008. This
“…never before has our interdependent world needed leaders prepared by Fletcher more than it does now.” – Dean Stephen W. Bosworth
As the evening continued into the twilight hours, guests mingled—continuing to strengthen the “Fletcher Connection”—and discussed the significance of the day. Though 75 years have past since the doors to The Fletcher School first opened, the need for its vision is even greater today.

Besides promoting ways to use defense procurements to support civil projects, Jim is also working with a consortium of power plants to develop sources of biofuels. For another partner, Jim is raising capital for an “exotic” Emerging Markets Fund. All three activities are mutually reinforcing and serve the same objective of creating new means of economic cooperation and development. Jim’s son has just finished his junior spring semester abroad at Karlsruhe University in Germany. Both his wife Tanya and daughter Vera are actively employed in public relations at major New York firms. “Tanya and I plan to celebrate the 40th anniversary of our meeting at the Fletcher Library during our visit to Mireille and Somsey Norindr on the Cote d’Azur. Somsey helped to arrange our first meeting.” Happy anniversary, Jim and Tanya! Philip Coonley reports that, after thirty-seven busy years, he is thinking of retiring from the Department of Transportation’s Volpe National Transportation Systems Center in Cambridge, MA, perhaps to something more focused on environmental sustainability. Since we last heard from him, Jacques de Suze has been working for a U.S. TV production company based in Paris. They cover events such as the Tour de France and the America’s Cup, and
adapt U.S. TV channels such as Discovery, ESPN and MTV to the European markets. Separately, he has also developed plans for a new information and entertainment channel that will launch in Europe and North and South America in 2009. Anne Emerson reports that she and husband Peter have each “retired from our full-time occupations in the past year and are having a most wonderful time doing all those projects pent up in our brains for the past forty years.” And, Anne shares, “We have two lovely grandchildren under two living five minutes away, which is a completely unexpected delight.” Nancy Roche Morino writes that she has been living in Rome for the past eighteen years, both “because I am married to an Italian, and because I love the city.” She is writing a book on her experiences there and looks forward to having it published in 2010. Nancy, your classmates (at both Smith and Fletcher) look forward to reading it! Nancy Tumavick is still working on Pakistan development issues both under contract to the USAID Mission in Islamabad (will return for the third time at the end of October), as well as working with a couple of the development firms in D.C. Bill Wilson retired this summer as Provost of Saint Michael’s College (Vermont) after thirtyseven years of teaching and administration. His interest in Vietnam has not waned over the years; he spent a sabbatical a few years ago teaching English at the National University-Hanoi for his practicum in earning a degree in teaching English for speakers of other languages and has returned to Vietnam otherwise in a variety of capacities. He has now turned his energies toward adult learning, having served
as chair of the State Literacy Board and a board member of Vermont Adult Learning. He will still teach a course each year at Saint Michael’s. In addition, retirement will be full with the arrival of a grandchild this year and their commitment to building a cabin in Walden, VT, on land he originally purchased when he left Fletcher for Vermont. Dick Wyttenbach-Santos writes that he has had only three jobs since he left Fletcher. He retired from the Navy in 1991, and immediately started working at the University of Guam as a tenured associate professor of political science, history and continuing education. He also served as vice president for student affairs at the University of Guam (retired in 2003) and now works part-time for a member of the local legislature as a researcher/writer and political advisor. Dick is an elected member of the Central Executive Committee of the Democratic Party of Guam and is also active in the indigenous rights movement. His older daughter returned from Salt Lake City to accept a position in D.C., and his younger daughter is moving to New York City to work on her master’s at The New School. One grandson (of four) just competed for Guam in judo at the Beijing Olympics and did well. Finally, yours truly, Carolyn Setlow , thanks all of you who replied to her request for news and reminds you that we are approaching our 40th anniversary—as hard as that is to imagine! My life continues to be full—with a new marriage, continued career in marketing research at GfK, plans for some travel with my husband Andy (to Oregon this fall, and Egypt in January) and enjoyment of my two sons: Daniel (21), a senior at the School of the Chicago Art Institute, and

John Caswell , also in D.C., reports that he and his wife Wendy are experiencing the bittersweet emotions of becoming “empty nesters” as their daughter Valerie started college at Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA, in August. John is starting his sixth year teaching history at the Calverton School and Wendy works as an official reporter producing the transcripts of proceedings for the U.S. House of Representatives. Away from the nation’s capital, John Koeppel is still in San Francisco and reports that his daughter-in-law Kimberly, married to son Adam, A05, will start at Fletcher in 2009. Harry Petrequin continues his work as a consultant in international development based in North Carolina. He has sons in law school (Marc Christopher and Paul Nicolas) so “retirement deferred.” David Levintow sends the following: “Not much to report except that five years ago I moved from Bethesda, MD, to Lyme, NH, where I live on the side of a mountain (they just call it a hill here) with a great view of the Upper Connecticut River Valley. I am enjoying the scenery and occasionally teach a short course at Dartmouth’s adult not-for-credit program. I meet a couple times a year with fellow Foreign Affairs Retirees of New England and did my last consulting assignment in Zambia a few years back, after I found the seventeen-hour return flight from Johannesburg to Atlanta proved to be a flight too long. I did get to Fletcher for a short visit and learned that current grads are considered state of the art in the globalized business world, much sought after by international business and non-governmental groups working overseas. Today’s students seem especially well qualified in green
approaches to old daunting problems. Fewer seem to be attracted to World Bank, USAID and State career paths.” So, there we are: still working, retired, surely not retiring (!), and looking forward to being together once again at Fletcher for our 40th reunion in May 2010! But, like David, don’t wait until then—visit Fletcher soon, and be impressed! 1971 William Hoffman firstname.lastname@example.org 1973 Nihal Goonewardene email@example.com The 35th Reunion resulted in an F73 class gift of $41,860, with 34% participation. Not surprisingly, the number of Leadership Donors surpassed the consistently high average of twelve in the recent four years, to reach fifteen in honor of this reunion year. This is a record for leadership giving by any one class, especially in light of our consistency and broad response to burgeoning needs at Fletcher. Please see the list of donors in this issue. The May reunion weekend brought together twenty of us, including some spouses. Another eight friends from ‘71, ‘72 and ‘74 joined us to help celebrate this milestone. We got a rather early start on the celebration with a Thursday night dorm party into the wee hours and visiting old haunts on Friday before the official opening of the alumni weekend that evening. The Reunion dinner for twentyeight was hosted by Christiane Delessert and John Shields at their elegant home by Crystal Lake in Newton, and was joined by Prof. and Mrs. Alan Henrikson. Our class elections following dinner reconfirmed
Nihal Goonewardene as Reunion Chair, Fund Agent and Secretary. Greta Greathouse was named Social Director by acclamation. After thirty-three years of distinguished service with the German Foreign O ffice, Ambassador Wolfgang Ischinger retired from public service as Ambassador to the Court of St. James this May. A stalwart alumni supporter and member of the Board of O verseers, Wolfgang has hosted many glittering alumni activities in D.C. and London including the launch of the 75th anniversary year of Fletcher in London. In recognition of his enduring loyalty and signal accomplishments as German Ambassador to the U.S. during a particularly difficult phase of the bilateral relationship, and two years as ambassador in the UK and other prominent responsibilities undertaken, such as chief European Union representative for the Troika negotiations on the future of Kosovo in 2007 and as Head of German Delegation for the Dayton Peace Accord and State Secretary of the Foreign O ffice, Wolfgang was invested with the Dean’s Medal at the 75th anniversary gala in D.C. He currently chairs the Munich Security Conference and serves as Global Head of Government Relations and Public Policy for Allianz, the giant financial services conglomerate. The 75th anniversary gala weekend was kicked off by F73 and Fletcher friends with Friday dinner for twenty-four at the Potomac, MD, home of Nihal and Chrystal Goonewardene , followed by Saturday brunch in D.C. in celebration of the 60th birthday of Greta Greathouse . The brunch drew a large gathering and was the fourth out of six planned across the world in celebration of this momentous gift to humankind. Pre-gala celebrations continued

Dale Stackhouse is still married to Robin Olds and practicing law as a partner and chair of the international practice group at Ice Miller LLP in Indianapolis. Laurie MacNamara Hendrickson recently hired three Fletcher graduates from the class of 2008—Jessica Dunsmore, Hai Huynh, and Joseph Angeles—to join her team at Booz Allen Hamilton as the newest members of the Economic and Business Analysis team. Rick Weston serves as a director of the Regulatory Assistance Project, a small non-profit funded by charitable foundations and federal agencies to provide policy advice and technical assistance to state and national governments on matters relating to the economic and environmental sustainability of the electric and natural gas sectors. Most of its work is domestic, but about a third is international. Rick and his wife Karen, a veterinary technician, still live in Vermont and have two children: Rachel (20) is a junior at Smith College and is spending the year studying at the Sorbonne; Paul has just started at Swarthmore College. For the first time since 1988, Rick and Karen have the house to themselves, an odd sensation. Hans Fenstermacher is happy to say that he and his family have finally joined the ranks of his illustrious fellow Fletcherites living and working in the D.C. area. In 2006, he sold his translation business to Translations.com. He stayed with the company as vice president and is now taking on more strategic responsibilities in D.C. Before that, they lived in the Merrimack Valley, north of Boston, since starting at Fletcher in 1985. He and his wife
Janet (a Tufts graduate) have been married twenty-three years now. Janet is teaching high school chemistry and they have three kids: Amy (19), Lucas (15), and Sam (14). Amy is a sophomore at Georgetown and is majoring in Russian/Chinese and any other languages she can get her hands on. If anybody is in the neighborhood, Hans would love to hear from you and catch up with folks after so many years. Pedro Moreno is planning to launch the Father and Daughter Alliance (FADA) to help 5,000 girls in five countries on three continents complete primary school. He currently works at The White House Drug Policy Office on demand reduction among youth. He and his wife Amy have three children, two boys and one girl. Paul Bagatelas and Christine Lauper Bagatelas , who lead the Fletcher Club of Dubai, hosted two receptions for Tufts/Fletcher alumni at their home in Dubai recently: in March 2008, the Club honored Shashi Tharoor, F76, PhD79, on his recent book publication; and in June 2008 welcomed to Dubai Fletcher Dean Stephen W. Bosworth and Sr. Associate Dean Deborah Nutter.

He is working near the Pentagon in Crystal City (Arlington, VA), involved in military cooperative transfers and sales to foreign customers. Nick Gill and his family are mourning the recent loss of his brother-in-law, Paris Genalis. Nick himself is facing a health setback; having survived one round of cancer back in 2000, he has most unfortunately been diagnosed with a type of cancer which is incurable, having metastasized. He and his wife Anne both turned fifty this summer and enjoyed trips this summer to her home in Alsace and then the Lepontine Alps (Ticino), the Berkshires, Truro, and Montreal. They were joined in Montreal on the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec by our

Jennifer Croft recently returned to the U.S., after finishing her contract at USAID Bulgaria (she was the last American at a close-out USAID mission now that Bulgaria is in the EU!). Jennifer and husband Andrei have decided to settle down for a while in Portland, OR, where she hopes the Fletcher network will prove useful as she looks for an internationally oriented job, “a bit of a challenge in the Pacific Northwest!” Susannah Cernojevich was seconded by the American Red Cross to work for the International Committee of the Red Cross as a communications delegate. Her first assignment was in Kathmandu, Nepal, where she had the opportunity to learn about the field activities of the ICRC in assisting victims of conflict. “Nothing could be more satisfying than trekking through the foothills of Mt. Everest in order to reunite families and deliver word from loved ones affected by the conflict. While I was there I met up with fellow Fletcher friend, Julie Werbel , F96, who was on mission with USAID. We enjoyed a fabulous Fourth of July at the U.S. Embassy in Kathmandu.” Susannah is now on mission in Monrovia, Liberia, where she will be until August 2009.

His team’s mission is to create an information and resource sharing system between existing military medical and health providers and their civilian government, UN and NGO counterparts. He’s looking for ideas and help from anyone working in other agencies in the U.S. government or on international civil-military issues. Julie Bennion started a new job as special projects manager with Washington State’s International Trade Division. Her Blakeley roommate, Ursina Plüss , has had a busy year, mainly dealing with security for the European Soccer Championship hosted by Switzerland and Austria, as deputy head of the Police Information and Coordination Centre in Switzerland. Her task was to produce security assessments to both law enforcement and political authorities on a daily basis, including holding security briefings. (Brief indeed, since there was no security situation at all.)

reunion? Great time had by all. Can’t wait until our ten-year… Aurelie Boukobza recently resigned from UNDP Morocco to start up a consultancy firm based in Paris called Be Linked. It is dedicated to accompanying private sector leaders in their growing responsibility toward civil society and more specifically NGOs and social entrepreneurs. After three years of calling Khartoum his home and working for the UN in Sudan, the “German stallion,” Christian Schornich , left the world of crisis countries in favor of a new assignment to work for the UN Resident Coordinator in Mozambique, one of eight countries selected to pilot the UN reform process. As change management advisor, he is responsible for coordinating the process there for the coming few years. Deborah Ruiz-Verduzco apologizes profusely for having been one of the few classmates who missed the five-year reunion. She writes that she recently moved from Geneva to The Hague (she didn’t even have a chance to say goodbye to Fletcherites Obaida El Dandarawy , Alex Ruppen, F02, and Annand Balachandran , F02!). In Geneva, she is in the process of opening a New York-based NGO run by Fletcherite Shazia Rafi , F83. She has been busy this past year with the ratification campaign of the Rome Statute, institution-building for the International Criminal Court, and enjoying life on a bike á la Dutch. Deborah has also has had the chance to confirm how well D.C. is treating Ale Bolanos and Rebecca Sanchez , and a few weeks ago she was able to catch up with Brian Duzsa , who had a stopover from Indonesia in Amsterdam. The dynamic Fletcher duo Waqar Hasib and Maureen
Wafer recently moved west to San Francisco, having endured one too many winters in New England. Waqar is working for the U.S. Attorney’s O ffice, where he is busy trying to get suspected drug dealers, money launderers and other nefarious figures into California courtrooms to face trial. Maureen is an international economist with Wellington Management, analyzing trends in emerging markets. In unrelated news, the demand for Sonoma chardonnay has been robust since the pair moved to California. Chris Burdick writes that he is happy to have landed back in D.C. after a threeyear hiatus in Stuttgart. Rachel Hudson apologizes for having missed the reunion. However, she was happy to have a chance to meet up with Daniel Ades in Geneva for a mini-reunion. Daniel was on a whirlwind tour raising money for his hedge fund, about which he is very excited. Heather Robert Coffman and her husband David are still happily based in San Francisco. She recently left her immigration law firm, is now working in education law, and loves getting together with fellow Fletcherites in the Bay Area. 2004 Brandon Miller brandonedwardmiller@ gmail.com Reunion 2009 May 15–17 We are coming up on our 5th anniversary!

Sasha Chanoff was also married last October, and he and his wife had a beautiful baby boy, Hayden Raphael, on July 24. Sasha reports that “Mapendo International, the organization I founded to rescue and protect forgotten refugees in Africa, raised over a million dollars last year, and now we have many Fletcher students interning with us.” Although it took a little longer than he initially expected, Erik Dahl “finally graduated from the Fletcher Ph.D. program last May.” Erik has started a new job as an assistant professor of national security affairs at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA. “My wife and I are still settling in, and if anyone is going to be in the Monterey
area we’d love to see you.” Sung Choi writes that he “FINALLY” graduated from Tufts Medical School last May. He promptly was shipped off to Newport, RI, for officer training before beginning his residency at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, CA. Sung is planning to be a Naval flight surgeon for several years before moving on to anesthesiology. A MALD alone was also not sufficient for Rozeta Shembilku . She graduated in May with an LLM from Columbia Law School in Public Law. She will continue studying at CLS this September when she begins her first year of JSD studies. The tentative title of Rozeta’s research proposal is “Designing a Legal Framework for Democratic Change.” Our West Coast superstar, Adrineh Gregorian , recently left Los Angeles to produce a feature length documentary in Armenia as part of a Fulbright fellowship. Adrineh reports that she misses Charmin two-ply toilet paper. After spending the last couple of years in Afghanistan, Bhuvana Anand will be working for the UN in Juba, Sudan, for a year with the O ffice of Project Services on infrastructure development and capacity building projects. Paola Amadei arrived in Asmara, Eritrea in February where she has been appointed as head of the delegation of the European Commission. “I love the challenges of the job and all the family is enjoying the great climate and beautiful environment of Asmara. Anyone in the region?” Dominica Drazal is now living in Shanghai with her husband and is working in microfinance. Seimin Kuan is working in the Netherlands and would love to hang out with anyone around The Hague.

and Vanessa Ortiz, F04. Rachel Gottesfeld had a great time meeting up with Salla Hagman and Patrin Watanatada in London while spending a weekend in the city. She was able to head down to England for a visit during her six-week stay in Dublin for training at her new job in the Infrastructure Finance Unit at DEPFA Bank. It was quite an adventure, especially because the three of them wound up struggling to carry Patrin’s bike on the tube from venue to venue; it turned into a laughing comedy of errors but was hysterical nonetheless! Nancy Eranosian just relocated back to California from the East Coast and is refurbishing her house before she can move back into it. Lisa Carse reports that after having worked for a year in development consulting based out of D.C., and then giving freelance consulting a try both in the U.S. and the UK, she decided to pursue an MBA.

Beginning in October, Mike Lieberman will be taking a nine-month leave of absence from his law firm to oversee operations at the Asia Foundation’s rule of law unit while the assistant director is on leave. Though sad to leave his girlfriend, new puppy, and people in D.C., the prospect of living at home in San Francisco again, traveling through Asia and re-engaging with ROL issues proved too alluring to pass up.

His production has increased substantially from last year. He produces a variety of wines and is also creating a line of lavender aromatherapy products. Donald Anderson retired from the Air Force in July and started work twenty-one days later in the same job as a government civilian employee. He is the assistant director for Air Mobility Command Analyses, Assessments, and Lessons Learned. Dora was pleased because after twenty-five years in the Air Force, he “didn’t have many good civilian clothes and because of that, had to go on a clothes shopping spree.” Janice Jensen retired from the Coast Guard in July 2007 after thirty years of active duty. She is now working in a contractor position doing computer security work at her former electronics unit at the Coast Guard base in Hawaii. She says, “Basically nothing changed for me except a major decrease in stress, significant increase in pay, and I get to wear comfortable clothes to work every day now.” She says she even fulfilled a lifelong dream of buying a blue-water sailboat for cruising around the Hawaiian Islands and hopefully the South Pacific one day. Elena Hughes is still in D.C. at the Coast Guard Headquarters but, since last year, has been working in a
new position with the National Infrastructure Protection Plan—Maritime Mode. Steve Taylor left Mildenhall in England and is now studying at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA.

Raya was thrilled to have Janice Chen come all the way out to the boondocks to attend. Janice truly received the real central Oregon experience, but still came away smiling. It was Raya and Matthias’s third celebration, as they first had a civil ceremony in December and then a German reception in June. Raya quipped, “They say three times is a charm!” Lauren Inouye is still in London working for Sindicatum Carbon Capital where she develops greenhouse gas emissions reductions projects internationally. She is always happy to welcome Fletcherites passing through and looks forward to more trips to visit other alumni scattered around Europe!

He knows he has to catch up with Brian Cathcart next! Leslie is excited to report that she is back at Fletcher for the fall semester. She and Shintaro enjoyed a visit in Yokohama, Japan.

He hopes to find an apartment in New York City very soon, so that he doesn’t “have to keep saving the world while sleeping on a friend’s couch.” Dmitri Goudkov has moved to sunny southern California to teach high school history at Sierra Canyon School. He writes, “Governor Schwarzenegger was scheduled to appear at the grand opening of the school, but the budget impasse prevented him from doing so. Next time.” O f course, his participation there would not be complete without some extracurriculars as well, in his case setting up a new bodybuilding club. Also in California—northern this time—is Valerie Seymour , who started this summer in Sacramento as a design engineer at Frontier Wind, which designs wind turbines.

She writes, “It seems I am staying in the Boston area for good. I am working at a non-profit organization called the Public Policy Institute/ ONE Massachusetts, which helps non-profit organizations
empower their boards, staff and volunteers to influence the public policy-making process through advanced policy analysis and skill-building sessions focused on messaging, campaign planning, organizing grassroots constituencies, building nontraditional coalitions and using earned and paid media strategies. Please do not forget about your fellow Fletcherites in this region of the world, and please come and visit us!” Also still in the area is Aki Nakai , who just started a Ph.D. program at the Department of Political Science at Boston University. Expecting to spend four years to complete his degree, he hopes to teach Japanese foreign and security policy in the future. Sara Monicchi just came back from Puerto Rico where she attended Annette Martinez ’s wedding. Annette married Diego Alcala on August 31st in Ponce, Puerto Rico, with a few other Fletcherites in attendance: Joie Chowdhury , Chris Altermatt , and Claudia Mahn, F09. As Sara reports, Annette and Diego “are in Mexico for their honeymoon, and they will move to D.C. right afterwards.” Sara plans to remain in Boston through November to study for the Financial Risk Manager Exam. In the meantime, she is exploring job opportunities in the U.S. and abroad. We also congratulate Elena Badiuk on her recent marriage to Francisco HernandezManzano in Mexico! As for me, I’ve just started as a Robert Bosch Fellow here in Berlin, Germany, where my cravings for cherry juice and pumpkin seed bread can luckily be fulfilled on a daily basis. Should anyone be passing through, do send an email and know that you’ll have a “local” tour guide.

GMAP I 2008 (summer) Kirsten Poitras email@example.com Having recently said goodbye after our graduation on that glorious summer day in late-July, there is little news to report. All are trying to move into normal life, postGMAP, without the message boards and team conferences wreaking havoc on already busy schedules. Who knew how much we would miss logging on, posting, and reading that wealth of wisdom each week? But life does move on, and some have already moved, changed jobs, etc. Prabhu Hariharan , with wife and daughter, has re-located to Tel Aviv to begin his position as first secretary and vice-consul at the Canadian Embassy. Karen Lock is now in South Africa with a new position at the Department of Foreign Affairs. Pauline Tweedie will be back in Afghanistan in October as the Gender Mainstreaming Advisor for GTZ (German Technical Corporation) in Kabul. And Jim Terrie is in Singapore with family after keeping athletes and others safe during the Beijing Olympics.

Although I have no first-hand information, I am hoping that Joe Vogt had a happy wedding celebration in September and that Rodrigo Marquez’s move to Minnesota was successful. Mark Maloney has invited us all to the upcoming festivities in London, Singapore, Bangalore, and Boston to launch the Boston World Partnerships interactive Webpage. Contact Mark for more details. Finally, Gil De Los Reyes is working on a GMAP 2008 Website to keep us all better connected. Thanks Gil, for the great initiative! GMAP II 2008 (spring) Xavi Fontan Xaviera.firstname.lastname@example.org So many amazing things have happened since our March graduation! Based on the news I’m getting from our fellow classmates, Fletcher has opened the doors of opportunity for a large group of us. I must say that I’m not too surprised. You are an incredibly talented group, and I do believe that this is going to be a fun ride as we track everyone’s accomplishments. Let me begin by congratulating Cour tenay
Rattray and Matt K ramer for their assignments to China. Courtenay was slated to be the Jamaican Ambassador to Japan, but is now vectored to become the Ambassador to China. He will be at his post later on this year. Matt was also slated to move to Hong Kong to work for his firm. What a great opportunity for both families! Paul Lucas has been traveling to Mauritania, Lebanon, and the Sudan. Congratulations on the promotion! Hasan Jafri another frequent flier, was part of the international group that finalized the drafting of the first ever Code of Best Practices for sovereign wealth funds, which will be made public in D.C., during the IMF World Bank meetings that coincide with the Fletcher anniversary. Kathleen Peggar relocated in June to Stuttgart, Germany, where she accepted a newly created position as the liaison officer to the Headquarters of the U.S. European Command for the Global Center for Security Cooperation. Among other projects, she is currently organizing an international symposium on security and the global supply chain. Erik Modisett just took a new
position flying in helicopters for customs and border protection in Louisiana. We are glad that you are keeping us safe! Chris Forrest is back in the cockpit and is currently in Louisiana, too. His family is doing quite well and his wife has just started her master’s in biblical studies and ancient languages. Speaking of additional educational opportunities, Gloria Garza is enrolled in the Air Force War College Non-Resident Course. We are impressed with your motivation to start a new course the same year you graduated GMAP! Sherif Mansour has been very, very busy. Last May he was promoted to work overseas with all of North Africa in his program, he published an article in the LA Times, gave a lecture at Stanford University on their fellowship program at the Center on Democracy, and is currently writing a chapter in a new book on nonviolent conflict in the Middle East about the Egyptian movement, Kefaya . Carina Hellemaa has been working with a think-tank/ NGO set up in 2000 by the former President of Finland, Martti Ahtisaari, as head of
development to help them with fund-raising, both in Europe and the U.S. She will be in D.C. for Fletcher’s anniversary gala. Angie Hatch was just recently promoted to international program manager for Australia, Spain and Singapore. At the prompting of a colleague (thanks to Gloria!), she submitted her thesis: Impact of Science and Technology Policy in Education: Can the U.S. Maintain Its Competitive Advantage? which is currently being considered for print with the Harvard Educational Review. Brian Treat is now in D.C. and will be joining us at the anniversary gala along with Pat Gambrel, Carina, Paul, Sherif, Michael Chelius and Hasan. I also plan on attending and will coordinate a fun GMAP happy hour before the dinner. Congratulations to everyone on their many accomplishments. Please send me an email with any new updates that you all might have so that we can add it to the next Class Notes Section. Looking forward to seeing some of you in October!

Miguel Monterrubio, GMAP 04 The nation of México lost a champion of diplomacy and The Fletcher School lost a dedicated alumnus on the evening of November 4, 2008. A plane carrying Miguel Monterrubio Cubas, GMAP 04, and eight other individuals, including Interior Minister and México’s second-most powerful government official, Juan Camilo Mourino, crashed into the Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood in México City. The plane was minutes from touching down at the capital city’s Benito Juárez International Airport when it fell into rush-hour traffic. Monterrubio had recently taken on the role of Mourino’s press secretary after serving as the spokesperson for México’s President, Felipe Calderon. After graduating from the Global Master of Arts Program (GMAP) in 2004, Miguel became a frequent collaborator and supporter of his alma mater, hosting various events in México City for The Fletcher School and Tufts University, including a “Tufts in the World” series and numerous functions in which he opened his home to prospective students, alumni and the greater Tufts community. His dedication to the GMAP program, along with that of Aldo Aldama Breton, GMAP 02, has proven invaluable to the continuing relationship between Fletcher and the Mexican Foreign Ministry. Since
presenting Miguel as its first yearly candidate for the GMAP program, the Ministry has since sent several students to the program. Miguel also acted as “unofficial host” of the GMAP residency program in México in 2004. “He was a great friend and colleague, full of life, always trying to develop new ideas…joyful,” added Vanessa Zárate Castillo, GMAP 06, a fellow member of the Mexican Foreign Service. “He was someone that enjoyed life, always surrounded by friends, always ready to listen and help. He was an optimist.” Monterrubio was a member of Tufts University’s International Board of Overseers, in addition to active participation on The Fletcher School’s Latin America Advisory Group, wherein he offered strategic guidance on affairs related to the field of communications, Latin America and his home country of México. “Miguel was a special person—a dedicated and exceptional diplomat, family man and friend,” noted Senior Associate Dean and Director of GMAP, Deborah Nutter. “He believed deeply in Mexico and its future. He was loved by his classmates, his faculty and Fletcher’s staff. One loved to be in his presence, for he was optimistic and caring. We, and the world, will miss him greatly, as he was destined for great things.” Before serving as Press Secretary for Interior Minister Mourino and President Calderon, Monterrubio held numerous posts in the Mexican Foreign Service, including Press Secretary for the Mexican Embassies in Italy, the UK, and the United States. He also held positions at the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including Advisor to the Deputy Foreign Secretary; Deputy Director and Head of the Department of Information, North American Desk; and analyst. In addition to his Fletcher degree, Miguel is a graduate of Universidad Iberoamericana, Instituto Matías Romero de Estudios Diplomaticos and Accademia Nazionale della Comunicazione.
Miguel is survived by his family, including his wife, Maru, and sons, Miguel and Mateo. ROBERT W. MOORE, F57, died 9 May 2008 of a brain tumor at Fairfax Nursing Center in McLean, Virginia, at the age of eighty-six. He was born in Boone, Iowa, and grew up in South Dakota and Chicago. He was a graduate of the University of Chicago. After serving in the Army during World War II, he joined the Foreign Service in 1946. He had seven overseas assignments with the State Department, including at U.S. Embassies in Paraguay, Chile, Ecuador, and Malaysia and at consulates in Indonesia and Scotland. In addition, he was the consul general in Karachi, Pakistan, and Vancouver, B.C. Mr. Moore received master’s degrees from The Fletcher School in 1957 and from the Army War College in 1963. Among his assignments in Washington, he was deputy inspector general of the Foreign Service. He retired in 1983 and became a member of Diplomatic and Consular Officers, Retired (DACOR) and the American Association of Individual Investors. Mr. Moore’s survivors include his wife of fifty-eight years, Jean Hunter Moore of McLean; his three sons, John R. Moore of Austin, William H. Moore of Atlanta, and Daniel K. Moore of Vienna; his sister; and three grandchildren. BETTY L. NEUHART, F46, died on 10 May 2008 at her home in Alexandria, Virginia. She was born on 5 December 1923 in Bellaire, Ohio. She graduated from Bellaire High School and The College of Wooster, Ohio, which awarded her the Distinguished Alumni Award, the highest honor bestowed upon a Wooster alumni. She received her master’s degree from The Fletcher School in 1946. She was a member of the Federal Civil Service for thirty years, advancing to progressively responsible positions from her initial assignment as chairman of the Foreign Service Orientation Programs at the Department of State Foreign Service Institute, Washington, D.C., to
that of regional managing director at the International Trade Administration and U.S. Department of Commerce in San Francisco, California. She was recognized with countless awards by the U.S. Departments of State and Commerce, including the Secretary of Commerce’s Silver Medal for Outstanding Management. The General Chamber of Commerce of Taiwan bestowed on her its Medal of Honor, First Class. She was one of five Americans to ever receive such an award at the time of the bestowment. She received a Doctor of Laws, Honoris Causa, from Lincoln University in San Francisco for her work as a public servant and educator and for her achievements in U.S. International Relations working in the center of U.S. International Trades Programs. The City of San Francisco presented her with the key to the city, an original cable car bell, and named the date of her retirement Betty Dickens Neuhart Day. While her children were in grade school in Bellaire, she served as a community leader in various positions. Ms. Neuhart was predeceased by her parents and her sister, Eleanor Dickens. She is survived by her four children, Mark Dickens Neuhart, Bruce Neuhart, Paige (Stan) Harrell, and Brooke Toth Perez; and her five grandchildren, Sara and Matthew Charles Neuhart, Elizabeth Dickens Harrell, Jonathan Harrell and Thomas Toth.

”I feel privileged to be a part of the Fletcher community. My Fletcher experiences have made me more of a global citizen. I give back so that others may have the same opportunity.” Bonnie Clendenning, F86, has had many associations with The Fletcher School through the years—as employee, student, alumna, Fletcher Fund supporter and volunteer, Austin B. Fletcher Society member, and Tufts Alumni Council member—just to name a few. Bonnie has put her Fletcher degree, along with her law degree and certified financial planner skills, to work, resulting in a distinguished record of leadership in the nonprofit sector. She currently serves as president of the School for Field Studies in Salem, Massachusetts, which teaches environmental sustainability, social justice, and economic development through field-based international education. Prior to this, she was executive director of the Archaeological Institute of America; vice president and COO of the Education Alliance in Framingham, Massachusetts; and head of institutional advancement for Radcliffe College. She also has worked for the World Federation of Friends of Museums in Brussels and the International Council of Museums/UNESCO in Paris. Recently, Bonnie designated The Fletcher School as a remainder beneficiary of her IRA because, as she says, “It is an easy and significant way to make a gift. You don’t need an attorney. All you have to do is download the form and fill it out. Plus, it can lead to substantial tax savings. Everyone can provide for Fletcher with this type of gift.” She points out, “Giving to Fletcher through your estate plans will result in important future resources for the school, so that it may continue its vital global mission.”
When she was on staff at The Fletcher School, Bonnie gathered the original collection of flags that now hangs in the Hall of Flags in the Cabot Intercultural Center.

DONORS TO THE FLETCHER FUND FISCAL YEAR 2008 (1 JULY 2007–30 JUNE 2008) Led by Dorothy Meadow Sobol, F66, The Fletcher Fund raised $1,363,303, marking a remarkable fourth consecutive year of double-digit growth. Fletcher Fund gifts also count toward the School’s $100 million Beyond Boundaries campaign goal. The almost 1,900 contributions to the Fund from alumni, parents, and friends assist Fletcher in providing its students a world-class education. Specifically, last year these gifts helped the School increase its average financial aid package to over $10,000, offer almost 100 students summer stipends for internship support, and provide much-needed support for faculty so they could pursue top quality research and continue to excel in the classroom. FLETCHER FUND NAMED TERM SCHOLARS Financial aid is the School’s top campaign priority. With a gift of at least $25,000 per year (two- or four-year commitment), alumni, parents, and friends can help meet this need by creating a named, term scholarship. John P. Hamill Term Scholarship Fund Michael M. Maney Term Scholarship Fund B. Craig & Libby Owens Term Scholarship Fund Steven G. Schulman Term Scholarship Fund Jonathan A. & Cornelia M. Small Term Scholarship Fund FLETCHER FUND ASSOCIATES $1,000 or more ($500 or more from graduates of the last decade) Fletcher Associates continue to account for almost 75% of the total annual fund. In fiscal year 2007–2008, 291 alumni, parents, and friends made leadership gifts. Trustees’ Circle ($50,000 or more) Anonymous Lee E. Dirks, F57 Michael M.

Also noteworthy was the alumni participation rate, which remained at 27%. A recent review revealed that Fletcher ranks number one in annual fund participation among its peer graduate schools of international affairs. This is certainly a point of pride for Fletcher and serves as further motivation to grow this number and retain this top spot. We would like to publicly acknowledge and thank all those who gave to The Fletcher Fund between 1 July 2007–30 June 2008 by listing their names in the following pages.

Thanks to all those who placed Fletcher among their philanthropic priorities this year. Every year, every gift to Fletcher ensures that the School can continue to offer its students outstanding educational opportunities in a world class facility. Your gift helped to educate tomorrowâ€™s global leaders, something Fletcher has done with distinction for 75 years. Further, a recent review revealed that Fletcher, with 27% alumni participation, ranks number one in annual fund participation among our peer graduate schools of international affairs! As a donor, your consistent annual support will be essential in our ability to continue to grow this number and maintain this impressive accomplishment. Your philanthropic commitment to Fletcher in 2007-2008 also helped the School as it strives to reach its $100 million goal in the Beyond Boundaries comprehensive campaign. Again, thank you; your support of Fletcher is deeply appreciated. We hope we can count on you this year and in the years to come.
