Class of 1986

Still living on the banks of the Roaring Fork River in Western Colorado where I am a partner in a law firm with offices in Aspen, Glenwood Springs, and Rifle. (Can’t beat “Rifle” for a great name of a western town). We put the raft in the water in our yard on Memorial Day for a float down to the Colorado River, but the low snow pack this year means for a short rafting season and a long dry summer. My nine year old boy is a jock – hockey, skiing, baseball – go figure. The six year old girl has converted most of the house into her art studio. I still see Chris Romeyn ’86 and Dave Meyer ’86 often as they live here in the valley. Dave and I saw each other a lot while dropping off the kids for ski lessons at Aspen Highlands last winter. My Deerfield obsession with Pink Floyd was fulfilled in seeing Roger Waters play the Wall in Denver recently. It’s been great to catch up with old classmates on Facebook. Thank you, Trip Wileman, for turning me on to the ultimate lego: a fully-operational Unimog. Now I also want a real one too!

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.
