NYC Beers and Bravado

So great to connect with Whit Armstrong, Doug Cruikshank, Doug Schmidt, Ben Patton and Will Wolf in NYC on January 26th.

Will wins for best surprise guest – he lives in DC and runs Human Development for Credit Suisse First Boston, spending half the month in Switzerland, a week in DC and a week in NYC. He was headed to the airport to fly home when he stopped by for a burger and some hearty laughs.

Whit continues to paint, Doug S. continues to deal and Doug. C continues to keep the banking industry on the straight and narrow.

Ben has written a book, due out in March. Stay tuned for the NYC event announcement.

Jon Gottscho called in to lament his own absence at the soiree and others emailed their disappointment at not being available.

When Will saw me raise my phone to take his picture he lamented, “Please – no pictures for the blog.” When I reminded him that is was BECAUSE of the blog ( that he even knew we were gathering he replied, “true enough John, fire away!” Let that be a lesson to us all – that sharing a moment of ourselves makes our class community stronger. Or just gets you a free burger and a beer! (pictured here with Doug Schmidt).

Guess we’ll just have to do it again…Feel free to host a gathering in your area, like Don Hindman did in Denver – i can get you some names and emails…

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?
