’67 Update

Almost 50 years after graduating in 1967 finds me still close to Deerfield Academy. I have lived in West Deerfield, operating Clarkdale Fruit Farms first with my father Fred ’29, and now with my son Ben ’96.
Three years ago I moved to another house on the farm, and can now view Mt. Pocumtuck out of my kitchen window.
I have enjoyed many friendships with faculty, staff, and students, and now my children continue the warm relationships. My daughter Betsey ’94 continues doing a great job as Director of the Annual Fund.
Ben’s wife Lori teaches dance and was the choreographer for last spring’s performance of Cabaret.And now my son Ben ’96 is on the Board of Trustees, probably for the first time in almost 100 years that there’s been a farmer on the Board.
I hope to see all of my old friends in the 5-year class of 1967 in this year’s Reunion!

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 Deerfield Clubs in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on specific clubs and their sponsored events. 

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.
