News from Ted McPherson ’63

As Chief Executive Officer and founder of InterSolve Group for twenty-one years, I continue to lead high-performing project teams of JUST-IN-TIME TALENT TM for Fortune 100 companies and Forbes 400 individuals. My interests in Dallas include serving on the Development Board of the University of Texas at Dallas, a growing research institution now with 19,000 students. My wife Sally and I have been involved for several years with the National Advisory Council and the In the Footsteps of Leaders program of the Gettysburg Foundation that built the new Visitor Center and Museum of 140,000 square feet on 100 acres in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where we spend time at my family home built in 1880. My most enjoyable speaking engagements recently have ranged from the evening lecture series at the Institute for Human & Machine Cognition in Pensacola, Florida, to remarks on character  and competitiveness to the Williams College men’s basketball team in Williamstown, Massachusetts, where I have played in the past twelve alumni basketball games.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
