Wally Epstein writes to Bruce Grinnell: It was great catching up with you. It’s great that you three are breathing life into our collective class memories. After Deerfield I went to Wesleyan, Yale Law and NYU Law (in lieu of Vietnam). I married Susan, who I met on her first day at Smith. We have 4 children and 5 grandchildren.
Susan and I celebrated my 75th birthday with a trip to Cambodia,Laos,and Myanmar. It was a spectacular trip.
My youngest daughter currently works in Southeast Asia in an organization dedicated to literacy for young women.
Since law school I have been dedicated to providing legal services to deal-makers. The skill set is similar but the projects are incredibly diverse. Currently I am engaged in activities in which I have little skill but great enthusiasm: singing ( glee club in NY), bridge (my talented son is carrying me),mentoring(can’t stop a lawyer from doing this) and politics (Florida,Kentucky,NY, and wherever I can help the Democrats in this election).
I dream of a more peaceful world and I despair for the ever growing refugee crisis.
The one real positive is that I have tried to live by the positive values of the Boydens. I will always be grateful for the opportunity they provided.
