Merrill Magowan visited Deerfield in May where he has a granddaughter, Dorie, who will graduate next year. Another granddaughter, Katrina, graduated in 2009 and is now at the California Institute of the Arts. Merrill believes she is the first grandchild of our class to graduate from the Academy – any rebuttals?
Merrill retired three years ago from the profit world, and wished he had done so earlier – if only to avoid the 2008 crash. He is chairman of two non-profits: the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA and the National Tropical Botanical Garden on Kauai, HI. His golf handicap is down to 10 and he is looking forward to our reunion in 2016.
