CLASS OF 1968 | 2017 | ISSUE 1

I’ll open with the observation that I am unaware of a lot of energy swirling around our upcoming 50th (May 24-27, 2018), though maybe—as I have stated that I do not wish any leadership role—I am not entitled to make any such remarks. However, three of our classmates, Sandy See, alexander.h.see@gmail.com; Stuart Ober, ober@staurtober.com; and…

Local news first: Judy and I celebrated our 70th birthdays and 44th anniversary and were recently musing how convenient it is to still be in love. When she noted that this may be more a matter of habit than conviction, I wasn’t taken aback. I can’t be choosy, as anything I get is more than…

I will start with Wig Sherman (Army vet) who let me in on a Wharton reunion at a dinner hosted by Jay Hoder (Navy vet) in Vero Beach. (Back in the day, back in Rhode Island, they played ’ball against one another.) Bob Runk ’67 (Army vet)—and some non-Wes guys—were present. “As you might expect,…

First, I will note that my wife, Judy, spent the fall in Paris and was there on Friday the 13th—and fairly close to some of the incidents—but she was not directly threatened and made it home safely a week later. We love France and she had a wonderful six weeks but never reckoned on it…

A successful Reunion takes all kinds of things to come together and the 50th is the biggest of all. Sandy See (seescape@verizon.net), Stuart Ober (ober@stuartober.com) and George Reynolds (greynolds@sandpointefunding.com) continue trying to identify volunteers for our 50th Reunion committee. There is a wide range of tasks that need doing but, with a good-sized group in place, no one will be burdened.…

2018 is not really that far off—at our age, we know how the years fly by—and yet that is our 50th Reunion, the big one, the Last Hurrah. To pull it off properly, there are a million things that need to be thought through and taken care of and, in all candor, we haven’t done…

I spoke to Dave Webb last summer: very busily retired on Cape Cod after 42 years at Choate. One of the kindest guys in our class, it is no surprise that he volunteers at Hospice two days a week. Barb is volunteering at a couple of libraries and arts venues, and both are in several…

I will open with a lovely letter I got from Guy Baehr as it is a model for you all: “I guess I’ve been putting this off for a decade or two, But I thought I’d send you an update now that I seem to have come to a convenient turning point. Which is to…

JOHN F. HOLLENBACH ’68

JOHN F. HOLLENBACH, a builder and architect in Vermont’s Champlain Valley, died Apr. 4, 2014, at age 68. He was a member of Beta Theta Pi and received a master’s degree in architecture from Harvard University. He moved to Vermont as a landscape architect in 1973, and then started work as a builder in 1974.…

Johns Hopkins University Press published Cut These Words into My Stone: Ancient Greek Epitaphs, translated by our own Michael Wolfe who has been flying high but, until now, under the radar of yours truly. A little research revealed he has focused largely on bringing an understanding of his Muslim faith to a wider audience. Highlights…
