A Siren, Retirement and…

Dave Knight ’58 writes, “After 40 plus years of roaming the west (principally as a not-for-profit fundraising consultant and principally in California), I was drawn by a siren, retirement and the need for a hip replacement at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center back to New England. I am currently living in Nashua, NH and very happy to announce that the siren, Jean Davis, and I plan to marry this October. Apparently, you can teach an old dog new tricks. I also have had the pleasure of seeing a number of our classmates. Bruce Grinnell, Brian Rosborough, Bob Breen, Peter Clark, Dave Knight, Roger Hoit, Robin Mahar, Dusty Miller, Mike Sheridan, Peter Sieglaff, Carter Strickland, Ed Urquhart and Davis Willis all attended our 55th reunion in June of 2013. Some of us had the great pleasure of visiting with Bob and Mary Merriam at that time. Bob turned 90 years young just a few weeks ago. That puts things into perspective. I also have had dinner with Tiff Tiffany who lives on Tiffany Hill. I guess that way you never forget where you live. I try to stay connected to the School and I look forward to seeing other classmates from the great ’58.”

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. 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?
