’71 Update

Well, it’s been 42 years since I graduated from Deerfield, and I finally have some news that might be worth passing along: I retired from Goldman Sachs in March of this year (after a mere 35 years there) and have been wearing out my passport (and my welcome) ever since. My wife, Anne, and I have been to Europe, Asia (Turkey), New York City and Colorado over the course of the past 3 months, and it finally feels good to actually sit still for a while. We still live in Weston, Massachusetts, but plan on selling our home and moving to our place in Woodstock, Vermont sometime in 2014 or 2015. I was recently elected Chairman of the Board of the Vermont Land Trust (where I have been on the Board for the past 7 years), and this is proving to be quite a time sink. I love the organization and the work that we do, so I don’t really mind the demands on my time. Anyway…it does keep me off the streets. After a long hiatus I am planning on attempting to resuscitate my golf game (this is still very much a work in progress), and Anne and I plan on continuing to do a substantial amount of traveling: Europe again in September and then New Zealand in February. Best wishes to all ’71’ers. Hope to see you at a future 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 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?
