A Message from Class President Mike Southwell
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 .
Events from previous years can be found on the Archives page.
Start planning now to attend the following scheduled events:
|Fall 2018||Tex Harris has announced preliminary plans for a 1960 80th Birthday Party, for all Classmates to celebrate those who were born 80 years ago, with a present swap and an $80 budget per person. More information as soon as it becomes available!|
2017-18 Annual Giving results are in, and the Class has done very well.
We had 339 donors from a
Class roll of 516, or 65.7% participation, and raised a total of $208,232. While that total is
slightly behind 1959's, it is better than 1961's, and our participation rate is ahead of either of theirs.
Special thanks to David Dodge and Rich McGlynn, Annual Giving co-chairs, and the section chairs
for these outstanding results!

Present swap and a $80 budget per person. Big times ahead.”

We have been once again, thanks in large part to Treasurer Bob Seabring’s efforts,
quite successful at collecting Class dues. In the 1951-1967
(senior) group of Classes, we were in the top five in both numbers and percentages of participants.
For our efforts, the University awarded us a prize of $200 (well, okay, it was part
of the Dues Incentive Program, and they
gave it to everybody, and they called it a reimbursement for expenses, but still....).

The 2018 Sachs Scholars have been announced, and they are (hardly a surprise) as
staggeringly accomplished as their predecessors. Hans Hanley ’18, an Electrical Engineering major,
will be confronting the challenges of cybersecurity at Worcester College, Oxford.
Jenny Silver ’18, a Religion major with a foot in Anthropology, will address the daunting issues
facing migrant women in Southeast Asia as a Global Scholar.
And, continuing the tradition begun last year, Samuel Barnett, a mathematician and philosopher
from Worcester College, will be working at Princeton to ensure the future safety of Artificial Intelligence.
Congratulations to all three! More information is here .
