Class of ’82 50th Birthday Celebration

At the end of April, 13 members of the Great Class of 1982, traveled to The Mid Ocean Club in Bermuda for a weekend of golf, fun and to celebrate all of our 50th birthdays together. Sam Bayne, Rob Engel, Ian Murray, Robert Douglass, Tony Manory, Eric Targgart, Joe Lotuff, Ted Ashford, Scott Kirkpatrick, Alex Navarro, Nelson Rockefeller, Jim Sullivan and Jay Winthrop were all in attendance. We also had the pleasure of having Somers Cooper from the class of ’81 join us for a few nights of laughs as well.

Many stories of our Deerfield Days were rehashed as well as new stories from the last ten years. This was the first time all of us had been together in at least ten years as not everyone returns for the reunion every five years. The weather was perfect and the golf was extremely challenging. One of the most beautiful courses in the world.

All in all it was a great weekend to catch up with all the old classmates and everyone voted that we need to now do this trip every other year!!

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?
