Sorry to miss reunion

To the great class of 1975,

It is with regret that I will miss this year’s reunion (the first one I think I’ve missed) as we will be traveling with our children celebrating Elizabeth’s (DA ’10) college graduation and Thomas’ (DA ’12) 21st birthday. Have a great time, raise a glass for me to Varsity Crowd and I will hope to catch up with you guys before the next reunion.

A quick update: Jane and I semi-retired as of 12/31/14 and are now focused on board work and, mostly, trying to spend more time with each other and the important people in our lives. The kids are rockin’ it and we could not be more proud. We recently built a net-zero house on Lake Sunapee in NH and hope to spend about half our time up there (interestingly, it is about five houses away from where Mr. and Mrs. Boyden spent their summers for 50 years or so). Travel, reading, sports, and food and wine will take up the time we are not spending on a variety of boards. I am still playing soccer and skiing the backcountry when I get the chance and relish the encounters I have with DA folks such as Schulte, Peter Weinberg, Fritz, Rafferty and others. Life is good and I hope to see you soon.

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. 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?
