news from 1971

I am back in the thick of it working as a consultant to Hampton-Sydney College in Virginia. I helped manage a new campus master plan and am now leading a project to design and construct a new student center. It’s great fun to be on the owner’s side of the table when dealing with architects! Hank Haff has provided invaluable advice as I’ve made this transition.

I enjoy keeping up with Peter Ray’s recent work in documentary film making and comparing notes on camera equipment. We’ve come a long way from the long days in the darkroom in the basement of the Memorial Building. Even compared notes on hip replacements with JD Mills who was doing some research for a family member. My ordeal continues, but no longer affects my day to day activities. Not quite ready for the golf match that Mark Marcoplos and I have been planning, however. All of these remind me that the relationships we form at Deerfield have value for a long time.

Ann and I look forward to meeting our second and third grandchildren when they are born this summer.

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?
