Class of '34

Urgent to my 1934 classmates: Before the next issue of Vermont Quarterly, PLEASE send some news for our class column. I hope we can have a larger and more interesting write up next time. Many people read our column because it is their only connection with our class and the University. Unfortunately, our column this time will be brief. I have recently returned to Burlington from our camp in Colchester. This year, William ‘35 and I celebrated our 65th anniversary and that was indeed an important event. In June, we attended William’s class of 1935 reunion, which was great, and we also welcomed the arrival of our 17th great- grandchild, happy events. However, other news is not happy. On August 5th, William passed away. We were blessed that we were able to have more than six years at home, enjoying as normal a life as possible, after his stroke in 1993. Being able to attend UVM home hockey games was a special highlight in his life.

Class of '36

Eleanor Coburn wrote sadly to let us know that her husband and our classmate, Dean Coburn, died suddenly on June 13, 2000. We will all miss him. Eleanor plans to continue spending winters in Vermont. I haven’t heard from anyone else for this issue, so please send me some news for future Vermont Quarterly magazines. It will be a great way for all of us to keep in touch as we count down to our big 65th reunion during UVM’s Reunion Weekend on May 31—June 3, 2001. Hope to see you all there!

Class of '38

Thanks to Mr. Brokaw, we are part of “The Greatest Generation.” Your secretary would be happy to hear what’s going on with the “Greatest” these days: Where are you? What have you been doing? What interests you? What news do you have of your ’38 classmates? How do you keep your youthful spirit? What’s the most recent grandchild count? A postcard or a note to me at the above address is assured of an enthusiastic welcome.
