Far Away

A while ago I reported that we had moved from Stanford to Cold Spring New York. This was part of our plan to return to London, where we are right now. Were we in Cold Spring we would certainly have come along to our Grand Reunion. As it is we send our greetings and wish we could be there.

We now spend much of our time in London but we still have our home in Cold Spring. London has many attractions as well as memories of the many years that we lived here before moving to Stanford. For both of us, work goes on. Ilse had a painting accepted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and I continue with scientific work. Somewhat to my surprise this seems only to get harder as I now am pretty much free to work on what I want and think is really important. And, as always, time is the scarce resource.

We wish everyone a memorable sixtieth Reunion!

All our best wishes,

Michael & Ilse Godfrey ’55

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?
