Recent Activities

Classmates of 1955: With the mantle of clinical tyranny set aside, I’ve been busy with Engineering School Research projects, including efforts to understand what went wrong with Metal-on-Metal hip joint replacements. FDA asked me to participate on their Advisory Panel this past summer for advice on what to do next with the 750,000 patients with Metal-on-metal hip joints in place. I am also serving on a Federal Panel examining the same issues, that will start meeting next year.

Busy, too, mentoring eight bright-eyed, bushy-tailed first year medical students learning which end of the stethoscope goes where, and teaching at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth.

My spouse is busy in her print-making studio and preparing shows of her work, with additional responsibilities with local galleries and distant ones, as well. Both of us are kept hopping with five of our ten grandchildren going to school together here in Hanover, New Hampshire.

I was pleased to catch up with William (Moose) Morton and Meg at a recent gathering in the Dartmouth Outing Club to give recognition to one of Moose’s classmates who got the Dartmouth Alumni Award. He is looking particularly well ignoring the passage of years and miles.

I’m looking forward to exploring the new Deerfield App for the iPhone and iPad.

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?
