Son Quentin Read gets married

Our son, Quentin Read, got married on April 30 in Tennessee, to Mary Glover of Murfreesboro, TN. Quentin and Mary met in his first year of grad school at UT five years ago. They maintained a long-distance relationship while she started her PhD at Notre Dame. On Thursday Quentin completed his doctorate in Evolutionary Ecology and Biology (his field work was on the effect of global warming on species diversity in Alpine grasslands) and on Saturday they got married at the Museum of Appalachia in Clinton, TN under the care of West Knoxville Friends Meeting (Quakers). At a Quaker wedding there is no officiant–the couple, after a time of silence, stands up and declares their vows. The congregation are the celebrants and minister with their own testimonies. It was a beautiful ceremony–the pouring rain let up half an hour before the wedding began and they got married in beautiful clear afternoon sunshine. Quentin is now doing a post-doc in forest science at Michigan State while Mary gets her PhD in biology, analyzing evolutionary developments in the life cycle of walnut flies. Hopefully they will move to North Carolina when they get done–our daughter, Dino Mangano, just moved to a house 300 steps from ours, and her mom (Maria Mangano) and I have delegated to her the task of nagging Quentin about moving back to NC!

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.
