A Message from Class President Bob Briggs

[President Bob Briggs] Welcome to the Class website. It is intended to supplement the Princeton Alumni Weekly, to help disseminate timely information about the varied activities of the Class, and to facilitate more effective communication and interaction. Its content is constantly changing so please access it frequently and help us by supplying photos and items of interest that concern our Class. Its value is enhanced by your ideas and participation. The Princeton Alumni Weekly is the only vehicle that goes to all members of the Class, not just those with internet connections, so please continue to supply our Class Secretary, Dick Grieves, with news by clicking  here .

Current News

[Sue Pierson] Part of the business at the Class's Virtual Class Meeting (see the next item) was to make Sue Pierson, Director of Residential Dining, an honorary member of the Class. She had shortly before that meeting received an Award for Service to Princeton from the Alumni Council. That award was written up on page 9 of the PAW for June/July 2020, and also  here .

The Class's Virtual Class Meeting, replacing what would have taken place during Reunions, was held via Zoom on 6 June 2020, with good attendance and a high level of satisfaction all around, despite the somewhat difficult conditions. Dick Grieves's minutes (in downloadable pdf format) are  here .

Lawrence Davis writes as follows: “I’ve just finished writing and publishing a novel based on my great-grandfather’s life during and after the civil war. He had to walk a path between his antislavery family and the confederate draft law which set him on a journey he never expected as a P.O.W. in the notorious Camp Douglas prison in Chicago. After the war he lacks funds to marry his sweetheart and asks her to wait for him not less than three years, no more than five years to allow him to go to California to earn money. After a journey to home, family, and peace, his life demonstrated that hardships can be overcome and a successful life achieved. The Life and Times of Jim Henery Shore is available at amazon.com. I hope readers will enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.”

The University has put together a Virtual P-rade video as a kind of substitute for the real thing. Our contribution was put together by the Reunions chairs, Barth, Briggs, and Bush, and is available for download (in mp4 format; it's large, so it will take at least a couple of minutes to download) here.

The University has at long, long last announced that the 2019 winner of the Class of 1960 Quenby Cullen Williamson Award for the outstanding Reunions costume was the Class of 2009. The theme was "09-tendo" and the marchers were dressed as Marios and Marias. Roll over the image to pop up a larger version.
