News from Mike Mayor

In a recent email conversation with Michael Mayor, he reported that he is still involved with prosthetics, and his work has evolved into a tighter focus on what he has been doing in parallel with replacements all along. He is working at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College, helping to run a large retrieval laboratory studying the damage done by patients using artificial joints, like total hips and total knees. He has done evaluations of about 12,000 parts since 1975, and continues to do more several mornings a week. Michael took the results of his research to the annual International Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in San Francisco in February; his analysis was well received and in late February was already having an impact. Thank goodness for Mike’s dedication; my wife and I are feeling pain in our joints and may need to reap the benefits of his lifelong commitment.

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.
