Kasia Newman Deuel made a quick visit to campus and enjoyed seeing the major landmarks of her youth with her family, including her son Emmett, 5, who enjoyed riding his scooter around “Mommy’s college.” She says that the “campus is looking great.” She is happily doing public policy work on marine conservation with The Pew Charitable Trusts, coming up on 10 years with the organization. She works from home in Beverly, Mass. She enjoys catching up with classmates when in D.C. or NYC and welcomes a chance to connect when folks come through Boston.

I’ve personally been enjoying the Netflix documentary series Remastered, created and produced by Michael Zimbalist. Each episode of the series is directed by a different filmmaker and “investigates high profile events affecting some of the most legendary names in music, presenting groundbreaking discoveries and insight.” My favorite episodes include one about the murder of Sam Cooke and another about the short, mysterious life of blues music pioneer Robert Johnson.

That’s it. Please send more updates my way. Thank you!
