Hi all, 
As they years go by, it's wonderful to keep in touch with dear friends and remember happy times.  The pictures of all are fabulous. Always a wonderful trip down memory lane. Listening to the music on the website always make me miss my Darien high school friend Bob Baldwin, who also went to Purdue as I did.  I can vividly remember Bob doing an amazing 'air guitar' to 'Tommy' album!  I've lost touch with him over the years, and if annyone know how to reach him I'd love the contact info. 
Still living in Savannah, GA. ... when I'm not on the road as a media consultant.  My youngest graduates from Med School in May 2015, so I am VERY close to the promsied land. 
Life in the South continues to be good...and warm! Also friendly and "civil" -- the Southern way of life of my wonderful Mom, who had a great deal of influence on me. Miss her everyday. 
My children have been a big focus of my life. Son Rob, 38, attended Exeter and Harvard and is now with McKinsey, the worldwide consulting firm. Beth, 35, went to Univ. of Penn. and now lives in Aspec, CO, in Development for the Rocky Mountain School married to a wonderful guy, an architect out there, and they have a 1 yr old they named River.   My youngest, Carolyn, is 28, and will start her residency at UCLA.Harbor in Los Angeles in June. They are all wonderful people; have been very, very lucky.
After college, I spent a year as a airline stewardess with United Airlines -- walking across the country in the air being a waitress and thought better of THAT -- and then went into business and was heavily involved in young Republican politics, as well as banking.  After ERA and post-Nam, I came to my senses, and became a Democrat and eventually got into the news business. 
While reporting and editing is my love, I kept ending up on the management/money side of the biz...bringing in the revenue to buy all that quality journalism!  And, eventually founded a media consulting company, now in my 25th year.  Website is Phelpscutler.com should you be interested in buying your county paper. :-)
Sold off my community news company in Boston suburbs before moving South, and did a stint with the Dukakis presidential campaign in 1988 on the North Carolina leadership team  -- Susan "Estrogen" Estrich and all (my unsweet nickname for the campaign manager.) The first year of the campaign under John Sasso was amazing, wasn't it?  He came out of the convention 27 points ahead of Bush, and then it all went down-the-hill. Was a great learning experience.
Moved to Savannah in 1995 to a more religious-based environment for my children, and launched current company in 1998.  Married more than once over the past 40 years. Ah...hindsight. A very  l-o-n-g story!  
But have had wonderful personal and business life... and still working way too many hours a week.  
Everyone's bios are so interesting to read, but that's not at all surprising, as ya'll were all an amazing group of people.  It was the Fairfield County version of the Brat-Pack!  And, I have so many great memories.  Love to hear from anyone. 
Best regards, 
Lou

Ted McClure
Librarian Married
Let's see. I wandered off to Carnegie Mellon University, where I changed my major five times. BA, Army commission, and married in '71, MSIA (=MBA) '72. Active duty with the Army (Intelligence) in Germany and North Carolina. Spouse was accepted to law school in '79 but the Army wanted to send me back to Europe, so I bailed. Couldn't find a job, so I went to law school with her; JD '82, Campbell University. Still couldn't find a job, so we practiced in Durham and Raleigh, NC, as McClure & McClure until 1990. I was a member of the North Carolina Army National Guard beginning in law school (it was a good part-time job), and in 1990 returned to active duty teaching ROTC at NC State. Watched the Guard unit I had been with for nine of the previous eleven years go off to the first Gulf War while I spent the war in Raleigh. In '92 I moved to the Pentagon as a speechwriter in National Guard Bureau, then as the National Guard Advisor to the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence. Retired in '98 and practiced law in Virginia and DC. The front of the plane that hit the Pentagon on 9/11 ended up in my last office there. Weird. Finally, I realized that what I enjoyed most about the intelligence and law businesses was connecting people with the information they needed, so I went to library school at night and got my MSLS from Catholic University in 2002. A week after graduating we moved to Albuquerque, NM, and then two years later to Phoenix, where I was an academic law librarian. Gradually separated from spouse (my fault, not hers). In 2013 I moved to Grand Canyon National Park as the librarian in the staff research library. It's a job I would do as a hobby, and it's at Grand Canyon. And they pay me rather than the other way around!

I do wish I had known I was autistic a bit earlier than age 60. It explains a lot.

Lawyer Married 3

Hello classmates

I was surprised recently to receive an email out of the blue from Pat Lillis.  She had received a tip-off from a cyber-stalker and had my email address!

For those who are interested:  after high school I pursued two degrees in art history, and spent a year studying in the UK and travelling in Europe towards that end, specializing in Italian Renaissance sculpture.  Art history was going to be my career.

Then apparently I got side-tracked.  I married an Australian who had worked as an attorney in NY, and we moved to Australia (at that time I still thought Sydney was on the west coast of Australia).  Good grief.  It was a shock to find that Sydney was on the east coast and that there were no kangaroos in the streets. 

Since I come from a family of many lawyers it was the logical thing to do law, which I did, and I can report that I was the first American woman to get admitted to practice law in Australia.  That required me to lobby to change the law, but it happened and now Americans can practice law here.

Somewhere along the line I obviously believed that with having 3 sons under five years old it would be a good idea to do a PhD in law, which, in my perpetually deluded state, I did accomplish by working full time, and writing and researching full time.  I am sure that my sons’ nannies who witnessed this are still shaking their heads in disbelief.  It was pandemonium but a good career move. 

I am still working as a lawyer in private practice, and probably won’t give it up.  My husband and I are still living in Sydney, Australia, and fortunately, the boys have all left home, are married (or virtually so) and have produced 3 grandchildren so far.   No doubt more are on the way, but that is not my problem! 

It was great to hear from Pat, and I wish you all the very best. 

Kind regards

Curator / mineralogist Married
Since the last reunion not much has changed except added minor toll of years and genes (what neither parent saw fit to tell you about their own infirmaties).  Still at the American Museum of Natural History and living in the City.  Still doing geological research and enjoying it.  Still enjoy travel, North Fork of Long Island, sailing, trains and life.  Look forward to catching up with you because I probably did not last time.

Still pedaling. After finishing a small college on the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge and having a sufficiently high draft number to give up my deferment, go 1A and not get called,  I thought I was safe from undesirable service, but I thought going to grad. school the safest option -- I went to Princeton majoring in Geology, although by that time I had picked up a wife, Pat changed to Batya.  When that was over I needed to find employment!
   I consider myself very lucky to have stumbled into a unique job as Curator of Minerals and Gems at the American Museum of Natural History that provides me with so many opportunities and a life's profession, which I still enjoy -- most of the time. I can chase my own interests while fulfilling the institution's mission of preserving samples from Nature. Perhaps this appears quaint in a world of extraordinary change and challenge, but I feel challenge and change enough in a single career. Some more recognizable benefits are having seen a lot of the world, traveling frequently for my own reasons, and being able to walk to work so I get enough exercise that I can keep my weight under control.  A big thrill and accomplishment was a major exhibition on diamonds that traveled here and abroad (Japan) and is being resuscitated now.  I have been doing field work, on and off,  in Guatemala since '84, looking at odd rocks with an important story and enjoying aspects of Chapino life.
  At the 20th reunion, the last for me, my life was in turmoil as Batya had announced her departure.  This  resulted in a divorce 19 years ago, relocation to the Big Apple and remarriage 18 years ago to Carole, my wonderful wife. This life change was a dramatic improvement, although it has taken time to adjust to City Life and City expenses.
    Although I keep in touch with Dave Keyes & Steve Buenning and have found Doug Jones, I have lost track of a lot of you, so I look forward to catching up on--gulp--40 years, a jillion miles, and a change in hair quotients.  But needless to say there are some hiding out there who should come in from the cold and reacquaint yourselves.  Whereas the future is what keeps us going, catching up from the past is so much easier and fun now.

scientist Married 1
A quick update: Over the years, I have lived in CA, England, New Haven, Panama, Switzerland, CA again and now Washington DC. I am lucky to be paid for what I love doing, which is studying the ocean.  I wrote a popular book entitled Citizens of the Sea which was a lot of fun and still selling after two years.  My daughter is 26, my husband of almost 30 years is a scientist too, and thanks to his son I am a step-grandmother.  Recently we bought a house on the coast of Maine and as a result I am finally tempted to "retire".  Can it really be 45 years??
PS - Just did my first live TV interview with Gwen Ifill on National Public Television  -  scary but fun.  http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/climate-change/july-dec12/reef_10-02.html
