New Books and New Business

Hello all:

I just want to tell you that I am alive and well.

Also, very busy doing what I like to do. I am still at Stanford telling graduate students what they should be doing.

And I published two books recently: “Advanced Batteries: Materials Science Aspects”, and “Energy Storage”, both with Springer. And now I am working with one of my former students to get a new advanced battery company started called Alveo Energy. Those of you who remember the Latin that you took from Mr. Coffin will know that Alveo means “hole or tunnel”. The reason the the use of that name is that the critical feature of the unusually favorable batteries is that the electrodes have crystal structures containing atomic-sized holes.

My wife Patty and I sold our wonderful 47 foot sailboat in England last year, and we now have to find something else to do with our time. It is beginning to look like a cruise or two may do for a while.

If any of you are in the vicinity of Stanford, please call: 650-843-0613.

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. 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?
