Robin Berrington writes that 2019 for him will involve “down-shifting into a lower gear.” (As readers of prior reports from him know, “lower gear” for Robin still puts most of us to shame.) He wants to “shed many of my activities” and “focus” on his work as a docent at the Freer/Sackler Gallery in D.C., and a board member of both the Contemporary American Theater Festival and of the Japan and Korean/American Student Exchanges. Highlights of the year included a trip to Umbria in Italy “with a group of old Japanese friends who had hired a guide to take them from Bologna through Urbino and other cities, ending in Rome,” and a return trip to Japan to announce his retirement from the Noguchi Foundation, where he visited Nagano, Kanazawa, and Kyoto.

Bruce Corwin writes that the movie business runs well in the family. He reports his nephew, Brad Fuller ’87, a Hollywood producer, won the 2019 Critics Choice Award for best Sci-Fi or Horror Film—A Quiet Place.

Ever the diligent class president, Bruce reminds us that we are “Aiming for our 60th—but need help.” (Assume he means the planning committee, not getting to the site in walkers!)

David Fiske: “Mary Ann and I in January celebrated our 50th anniversary. I’m still enjoying the beach life in Rehoboth Beach, Del., doing freelance writing and editing, and enjoying granddaughter visits to Washington, D.C.”

Mike Riley wrote to share with classmates his “2020 vision of marital hospitality and Christian neoteny” that he will engage with “online outreach.” He writes, “My card will say: Michael H. Riley, PhD / T’INKER / Christian Neoteny & Marital Hospitality / Theory and practice of visits by self-appointed Quixotic Young to self-respecting Married Couples with a Camelot, Eden, or M-anger to share. 904/315 8945.” He has a very interesting website at

Finally, a sad note: In the fall, John Magee, who was living in Sequim, Wash., passed away after battling cancer. He is survived by his wife, Bobbie. Dave Hedges heard the news from John’s brother-in-law, Bob Jaunich ’61. Dave writes that John “led a rather free-spirited life, mostly on the West Coast, and including several jobs.” Dave, Phil Calhoun, and Ted Hillman connected with him by phone a few years ago, but “could never entice him back for a Reunion.”
