Thank you Harvey…

I just recieved Harvey Loomis’s class letter inviting comments from old classmates. I realized I have not submitted anything for decades. Soooo….here I am 80 yrs old, widowed after 50 yrs. with a beautiful ( and very tolerant ) woman, growing older every day with so many pleasant memories and a few more aches with every season. Some of my most delightful memories are from my days at Deerfield with all of you and the incredible faculty that herded us from boyhood to ( more or less) adulthood…what an experience and we were so lucky to have had it. I entered Deerfield as a shy and uncertain child and exited with some self confidence and a lot of determination. Most of this came from Mr. Boyden, our coaches Ben Haviland and Hienie Hubbard… and I suppose some from Mrs. Boyden who didn’t give up on me in chemistry class. As contemplate getting onto the final bus ride I am overwhelmed by the good fortune that allowed me to become a member of the Deerfield family and to have known and learned with all of you. Let’s hope we all “finish up well”…that would please the “Quid” very much.

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.
