Jim Dossinger is living in a retirement community in Winston-Salem, N.C., near two of his three children and two grandsons and “a new grand dog.” His third child and two granddaughters are in D.C. He is involved with the Winston-Salem Symphony, where his “major project” at the moment is the selection of a new music director. He says, “When there is time I try to play golf (badly) and fly fish for trout.”

Bill Everett has published Mining Memories on Cyprus 1923-1925: Photographs, Correspondence, and Reflections in a Kindle e-book format on Amazon.

The book is based on his grandfather’s two-year effort to reopen the ancient mine that provided copper for Agamemnon’s armor (Iliad, chapter 11.) Bill’s efforts to put this memoir together “have led to many meaningful relationships with people on Cyprus as well as opening parts of my past that I never really knew.” He says he continues to be active “with writing, art, woodworking, and church and community activities in the Smokies.”

Naftaly “Tuli” Glasman retired from the University of California after 44 years of service, and says he “feels great physically and mentally” and is active with volunteer work. He says he is “more senior” than most of us because he didn’t join our class until after he had completed mandatory military service in his native Israel. He and Lynne have been married for 44 years, and are blessed with “three kids speaking lots of languages, and eight grandkids ranging in age from 3 months to 20 years!” He reports seeing Bruce Corwin when he visits Santa Barbara. He writes “Lynne and I wish the Class of ‘62 long years of continued healthy growth.”

Tony Scirica, senior judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, has been awarded the prestigious 2017 American Inns of Court Lewis F. Powell Jr. Award for Professionalism and Ethics for “exemplary service in the areas of legal excellence, professionalism, and ethics.” Tony was appointed to the U.S. District Court in Philadelphia in 1984, and then to the Circuit Court in 1987, where he served as Chief Judge from 2003 to 2010. He chairs the Judicial Conference Committee on Judicial Conduct and Disability, and also is a senior fellow at the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

Dave Hedges sent in a Rochester, N.Y., obituary notice on a former classmate, Jim Snyder. After completing graduate school at the University of Rochester, Jim taught American history at Monroe Community College. He was especially noted for courses he created on World War II and the war in Vietnam. He is survived by wife Judy Peer, two daughters, a son, and a granddaughter. We offer our condolences to his family.
