2 years till 50!

Sooo, we are now 2 years from the 50th. Better start planning, mates! My wife Marit and I are considering to attempt to come. If you will have us, that is; in March this year we were surprised to have a “travel not authorized” response from the US Customs and Border Protection, the first ever after all these years of reunions and other visits. We had bought tickets and paid hotels and car rentals from SF to LA and the Grand Canyon, all of it lost. I think our work and travelling throughout the Middle East and Africa have earned us a position on the suspects list. What was not an issue in 2013 apparently is a lot more scary in 2016. Marit is angry enough to stay away but I’ll try to persuade her to at least try again.
And in the meantime she will be busy doing her consultancies through her two companies, and I through mine, and both of us seeing our 4 grandchildren as much as possible, all of them near us here in central Oslo. Plus I spend a great deal of time on dubious things such as ARC-PEACE International Architects Designers Planners for Social Responsibility (board member and Co-Secretary), and other subversive things.
Hoping to see you in 2018, I shall remain true to, and hopefully be worthy of, my heritage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, as every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are regional events in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on regional engagement. 

Of course! Be sure to read the latest issue of From Albany Road in your email’s in-box for current news of what is happening on campus. As we also send out periodic invitations, it’s always best to make sure we have your current physical address. And if you do plan on visiting campus, why not tell us ahead of time?
