50th Reunion Planning Underway – June 2021

FEBRUARY 2, 2021 – YAA and the Yale Development Office report that in-person reunions for Spring 2021 have been cancelled.  Details on our virtual reunion will appear soon.

Reunion co-chairs Lupi Robinson and Bob Bruner write:

Planning is underway for what promises to be a memorable 50th, to be held early June 2021 (date coming soon). Our class includes men and women who have made major contributions in their fields.  We hope to hear from some of them during the class program.  Chairs Bob Bruner (SYC) and Lupi Robinson (DC) report that Bill Porter has signed on as overall chair of recruiting, Kurt Schmoke has agreed to serve as chair of the Program Committee. Jay Gitlin has signed on as Editor in Chief of the Class Book. Tim Powell will continue as our class Tech Czar and Rick Cech has volunteered for the class survey. Thanks to all of them and to classmates who have agreed to serve as college recruiting captains. Expect to hear more in the New Year!

Karen Lawrence has graciously offered to host a Southern California pre-reunion event at The Huntington Library and Gardens in October. Plans are underway for a pre-reunion gathering in the DC area in the Spring. We are looking for someone to host a third regional gathering in the Chicago area. It takes a whole class to pull this off and we are looking for more volunteers—especially those with writing and editing talents for our class book as well as classmates  to join the teams planning our regional gatherings. If you are interested in helping please contact us at reun71@gmail.com. We need you!

To get you in the mood for the big event, Shad Dabaghi, recruiting captain for Trumbull, has suggested the following pre-reading:

    • The Game (Colt)
    • Skull and Keys (Richards)
    • Yale Needs Women (Perkins)
    • Yale: a History (Kelley)
