’52 News

The following ’52 notes were compiled by J. R. Allen:

Last May, Bill Hinshaw and a small group of his friends and their accumulated families held a reunion on “their” beach at the mouth of Newport Bay, CA. They had changed mightily since the late forties through early fifties. Bill tried the surf and found it as he had remembered, but several others decided not to cope. He writes “They were probably wiser than I in that, but there are some things one can never give up, especially when I had had to leave it every year to go back to Deerfield. Hopefully we will do it again next year and keep going back.”

From J.R.: I had the pleasure of speaking with Virginia Warren, Jump Joe Bob Warren’s wife, a few weeks ago. They live in Bedford, NH, and to the best of my knowledge, Bob has more grandchildren than any other member of our class: twelve.

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.
