Condolences to the family of Dr. Jean Davison ’44 who passed away on November 23, 2017. She was a brilliant scholar and was named the Lyman-Roberts Professor of Classical Languages and Literature in 1972 at her alma mater, a position she held until her retirement in 1992. On a personal note, I remember Jean well, her keen intellect, boundless curiosity, high energy, and her passion for learning. It has recently come to my attention that an outstanding member of our class, Dr. Milt Kaufman, passed away about six years ago. He was a fine athlete involved in several sports, including baseball and track under Archie Post, and basketball all four years under Fuzzie Evans. Milt was also a member of Key and Serpent, Boulder, and ROTC. We belatedly offer our sincere condolences to his wife, Rhoda "Chickie" Kaufman, and his family. Recently I have been in communication with his son, Dr. Jeff Kaufman ’74, whose daughter has recently given birth to a little girl named Eloise, which I can't resist mentioning. After all, she is Milt’s great grandchild. Warm wishes to all!

51 Sylvia Hoisington shared that on April 5, the New York Choral Society honored her at its spring gala for her fifty years of active participation.This is the big fund raiser of the society, and includes an online auction. In June, Sylvia, her sister, and a close friend, Elaine, attended their 70th Springfield High School reunion in Vermont. On this trip Sylvia and her sister visited the Hoisington farm in Weatersfield, where the new owners were delighted to see them, and took them on a tour of places where the sisters had played as children. In July, Sylvia and her sister went on a cruise of the Snake and Columbia rivers following much of the route Lewis and Clark traveled. This year the sisters also visited Portland, Oregon; Olympia, Washington; Ludlow, Vermont; and a variety of places in New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Sylvia sure gets around! Dick Fink's wife, Claire, wrote that many of his health issues have occured on the tennis court. That includes two rotator cuff surgeries. But Dick still plays tennis three days a week. In his spare time, Dick is on the computer checking their investments, or reading. Claire suffers from arthritis and severe spinal stenosis so she uses a walker to get around. Probably several of us can relate to that.

Robert Woodworth writes, “Our 65th reunion is coming up this fall. Do we want to schedule a class dinner? Please let me or the alumni office know. After ten years at Wake Robin Retirement Community, I will become president of the Residents' Association this summer.” David Prince is working full time as a professor of neurolgy and neuroscience at Stanford, where he has been since 1963. He founded and headed the Department of Neurology from 1970-89. After this long period of doing patient care, administration and basic research in epilepsy, he stepped down in 1989 to work full time in his lab. He writes, “My life's love, Reva, died in 2005. We raised three children who live in Boston and Oregon, and I have five grandchildren, who have all promised not to retire before I do. My scientific family includes many successful trainees in neurology and neuroscience research. All-in-all, life has been a pleasure, with the inevitable mix of joy and sadness. I've lost touch with most of my UVM friends from my years as an undergraduate and medical student, and contacts would be welcomed. I can be reached at daprince@stanford.edu.” Bernice Berger Miller, “Binky,” sent a marvelous documentary about her life after graduation from UVM. She continued her education and received a PhD from the University of Florida. Since then she has published seven novels, the last two have just become “live,” which means they are available on the market. The titles are Abuse and It’s All About a Name. She continues writing in several genres: novels, personal works, and children’s stories. Binky is the mother of two children, fathered by her husband Leonard Miller ’51, who passed away a few years ago. Binky still lives in Florida, but has a summer home in Vermont. As she says “Vermont stays in one’s gut.” Jean Post Lamphear let us know about the passing of Jean Millis Gilpin, on October 3, 2017. Jean Millis was an outstanding scholar, teacher, and devoted friend of classmates Bobbi Demarest Robinson, and Marylin Hinsdale Fletcher ’55. Jean moved to Burlington in 1941, when her father began his tenure as president of UVM. Jean was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta, and served on the Student Government Association. She was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and Mortar Board at UVM, and worked at the United Nations prior to marrying Bob Gilpin ’52. Fond memories of an outstanding classmate carry on. Husband Bob is now living at the Shelburne Bay Community with family nearby. Alfred John Purcell, Jr., passed away on January 28, 2018. A graduate of the college of engineering and math.

54 Nancy Preston Johnson writes, “With the advent of Facebook and other social media platforms, I suppose that Class Notes are becoming less important. However, when I check our class and see that no one has submitted anything, I guess I just want to jump into the breach. Moving forward, I hope others will join me in sharing some news with our class. I was a transfer student who came to UVM from Lawrence College in order to be closer to Dartmouth, where my high school boyfriend, Bill Johnson, was a student. I loved every minute of my time at our university. I had great teachers, most memorable was history professor Paul Evans. I loved Vermont and I married Bill. We had fifty-five years together. We ran political campaigns, created several small businesses, and raised two daughters. Bill was a Harvard trained lawyer who practiced in Hanover, New Hampshire and became a Superior Court Judge, and later a Supreme Court Judge in New Hampshire. I am retired and living in Florida. I owe so much to UVM and continue to be grateful for the fine education I received.”

Carol is busy with many friends and as an active member of the Unitarian Universalist church. Finally, from class secretary Jane: Hi, everyone! Must've been all those wicked hard storms over the winter that so many of us endured that prevented so little news sent my way this time around!

Steve Rozen just got his Florida Dental License for charity services at a clinic and also volunteers at Rookery Bay Preserve. He and wife, Midge—married for fifty-seven years—mentor a high school student from Immokalee through the Guadalupe program. “I have to say that we are living in paradise, and loving every minute of it,” Steve writes. He regrets they can’t make our 60th, but have their sites on the 65th. Ronald Downer reports that he came across his beloved freshman class beanie as he was doing some downsizing. It brought back fond memories of living in Wills Hall, making new friends, celebrating a form of independence from home, and embarking on a new and untried adventure. One of his new friends, Mike Zacchilli, became his best man five years later! Ron, looking for a new home for his beanie, sent it to the Alumni Association office. Judy Rosenblum Cohen and her husband, Dick, have been doing a lot of traveling in celebration of their 60th wedding anniversary in June 2018. They have been to all seven continents, above the Arctic Circle, below the Antarctic Circle, and most recently to Churchill, Canada, to see polar bears, Iceland, and Costa Rica. The alumni website photo gallery features a photo of Judy with her brothers, Norman Rosenblum ’66, immediate past Mayor of Mamaroneck, New York and FDNY28 team owner, and Jim Rosenblum ’62 at the NASCAR truck race in Daytona in February. Judy writes that she is looking forward to seeing many classmates at the 60th reunion in October.

Work teaching led Ann back to college, accumulating MEd, EdS, and a PhD while co-parenting four children. Throughout her forty-five year university and publishing career, Ann regularly brought new practices into use by teachers, focusing on those with the most vulnerable students. She was a tenured professor at the University of Vermont and Arizona State University, and a visiting professor at three other universities after her first retirement.

62Steve Roy Burzon survived Hurricane Irma on the French side of St. Martin. “Horrific storm and conditions, but with the love of our family and our glorious Antillian neighbors, we made the best of it and have moved forward to a new home on the Dutch side of the island,” he writes. Steve is in contact with classmates John Lazarus, and Jules Older and Effin Older ’64. Steve is now fully retired and doing not-for-profit work, mostly with their local yacht club, where he’s involved in youth sailing and sailboat racing. Granddaughter Lily Mandl begins UVM Nursing School in the summer of 2018. “All is good and thank you to UVM for having been a wonderful part of my life,” Steve says. Jules Older writes, “Do-Gooders, the word do-gooder evokes bad feelings: silly, unrealistic, interfering. To me, it’s a good word; I wear the do-gooder mantle with pride. Our two most recent mini-movies are all about do-gooding—one from San Francisco, March for Our Lives, and one from New Zealand, New Zealand Pride.” Joann Trolinger is still working as a family nurse practitioner at Sutter where she is involved in teaching and clinical work. Her husband, Don, is recovering from a TAV procedure and doing well. Both daughters are again working on further degrees—her granddaughter just took MCATs, and life is good.

They loved their time in the small town of Beaulieu-sur-Mer. “Cambridge is a real college town, with hordes of young people on bicycles,” Stephan writes. “It has an atmosphere that makes you feel young at every turn. It reminds me a little of Burlington, only without the hills and the lake.” While living overseas, they have welcomed many UVMers, including Daniel Goldberg ’67, Roy Zuckerman ’67, Jean Halpern, Gordon Josephson ’67, Jeffrey Shapiro ’67, Dennis Baum, Nadine Glasband ’67, Bob Mirman ’67, Aaron Schildhaus ’65, Cheryl Gadoci ’69, and hope that will continue.

David Nussbaum and his wife, Laurie, enjoyed the Westminster Dog Show with fellow Phi Sig brother and longtime friend Roy Greenman ’70. Facebook reconnected them with Richie Segal and Jeff Barnes ’69. David stays active as an engaged board member with the Monmouth County SPCA after a long career as a non-profit executive. Your class secretary has had the pleasure of reconnecting with a number of classmates lately, including Michael Lash at a Burlington Rotary Club meeting. After thirty-eight years as CEO and President of Carriage House Furniture/dba Ethan Allen Design Center, Michael is now advisor to start up, incubator, and small businesses—a natural next step for him with all of his years starting and running businesses in retail. I also connected with Walt Blasberg before and after he traveled to Honduras where he met dear friends, Al and Linda Gilbert, who are a part of the Hands-2-Honduras non-profit that Liz Mead Foster and I have volunteered with for a number of years. Walt was in Tela, Honduras in February where he met Linda and Al who have worked tirelessly for many years helping that community. Walt is also involved in the Islands Business Bureau in Vermont, and he recently hosted his mother’s 100th birthday at the North Hero House Inn with friends and family. Liz Mead Foster reports that she saw Mary Shaw Sondgeroth and her husband in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Mary and her husband, Dan, are permanent residents there, having moved from Austin, Texas. Mary is an expert on knowing all the great things going on in town, from music, to art, to great restaurants. Liz was there spending time with her daughter and grandson, who were at a local language school. Liz also tells me that Jimmy Taylor and Barbara Potter ’76 are working on another documentary about the Constitution—a huge project.
