69s Who Attended Reunion (and Moosilauke)

Here is the list of those who attended our fantastic 50th Reunion.

(Below this list (lots of scrolling - sorry) is a list of those who planned to visit Moosilauke as part of the pre-Reunion activities.)


Casual Conversation December 28, 2022: Harari's Sapiens

Time to sharpen our reading skills and get ready to discuss Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari.   Classmates David Abbott and Tex Talmadge will be our docents on this tour through history, but as David writes, see below, the goal is to get your views in reacting to the book and at looking at the future of our species.

SAVE. THESE. DATES. (Corrected dates for Reunion.)

Homecoming this past weeekend was awesome.

At this time, our next in-person gathering is planned for October of 2023: Homecoming 2023 will be the weekend of October 6 & 7. Plans are still being finalized but will likely include a climb up Mt. Moosilauke, an in-person Casual Conversation, a class meeting, tailgating, football against Yale, and plenty of free time to socialize with classmates. We would love to have a great turnout. The more ‘69s, the better!

Casual Conversation with John and Sue Leavitt, October 23

The next Casual Conversation is on Sunday, October 23 at 3 pm Eastern, and features classmate John Leavitt and his wife Sue.   The topic is Management of the Family Forest in Northeastern United States, and is described below in detail.   I hope that you will join us for what promises to be a terrific session.

casual Conversation with Ted Baehr on September 18th

After much persuading by Tex Talmadge and me, our classmate Ted Baehr has agreed to spend time with us as our guest in a Casual Conversation to be held via Zoom on Sunday, September 18 at 3 pm Eastern Time (US).  Ted has had a career unique, to my knowledge, to anyone in the Class.  He has forged his own path, exemplifying through his life and work the values he holds dear, and I consider it a real coup that he has agreed to speak with us.  I have assured Ted, as has Tex, that he will be treated with the utmost respect, as have other speakers with whom classmates might have disagreed such a
