Douglas Arnstein

After 38 years of working at many corporations building and managing the delivery of systems and ensuring adaption/success, I hung up my laptop last year. Along with stints as an employee at Bank of America and Blue Shield of California, I also worked for many consulting companies and had the honor of working at Sperry Univac, The State of Washington, Pacific Gas & Electric, Chevron, Wells Fargo Bank, VISA, Charles Schwab and Co., SEI Investments, and Optum, a subsidiary of United Health Group. Whew! On the personal side, Catherine and I moved to Sonoma, CA, in 2015 after many years in San Francisco. It’s a slower pace up here with almost as many wineries as Napa Valley. My new motto is “Have Corkscrew, Will Taste”. I still keep in touch with classmates near and far. As you have heard, I have been recruited to join the 50th Class Reunion Committee and am looking forward to supporting the festivities. Hope all is well.

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?
