Evan Bush's innovation of a pre-P-rade luncheon on Reunions weekend has noticeably improved attendance at our off-year reunions. At the luncheon this year were Bromley, Detjens, Forcione, Harris, Jackson, Keller, McGlynn, Santy, Southwell, and Villency, some with spouses and/or friends. The luncheon featured spirited and moving discussions of both how we had happened to attend Princeton, and what at Princeton had had a particular effect on our lives.


The P-rade itself took place under swelteringly hot but still enjoyable and stimulating conditions, with most of the luncheon attendees, joined by others whose names have gotten misplaced. Signing in but never seen were Ev Bond, Hillegass, Howson, and Weiss. Credit for the first picture above is due to Tex Harris. The second is from PAW's slideshow, available  here .

The University reports that we have done very well this year on Dues for what they (appropriately?) call Senior classes. 318 out of 557 active Class members, or 57.1%, have paid. This gives us the highest rate, by a noticeable margin, of any Class between 1955 and 1965. Congratulations to Treasurer Bob Seabring for his hard work in this respect (and others).

A small but enthusiastic group of Classmates attended the Awards Luncheon on Alumni Day on 20 February, where they had a chance to meet one of our two current Sachs scholars, Sarah Cen, and to hear about other astonishingly accomplished undergraduate and graduate students and alumni.

The psychic pain created by a disappointing game against Yale was eased somewhat by our annual post-game Class Cocktail Party in the library at Terrace Club. Attending were Beaver, Bush, Conway, Detjens, Hillegass, Joan Sachs Shaw, and Southwell. Reported to have been around, but not seen here, were Gargalli, Howson, Max, Santy, and probably a few others. Those who did not attend missed a wonderful variety of food, including spiced tofu, skate, chicken wings, salsa and guacamole, and sandwiches and wraps, along with lots of beer and wine, and good companionship. Photography credits: Vicki Beaver, Phyllis Conway, and Peggie Hillegass. Mack Emmert was there also but doesn’t get any credit for photography.

One of the driving forces behind the Daniel M. Sachs Class of 1960 Scholarship was Prof. Charles Gillispie ’h60, who died on 6 October. Gillispie was Dan’s undergraduate mentor and served the Scholarship for over 50 years, in part by interviewing candidates. The University flew its flags at half staff in honor of Gillispie, and its news story about his death is  here . That story includes a link to  the Sachs Scholarship donation page  on our Class website, which we encourage you to use at this time in Gillispie’s honor.

We're over 70% for the first time in four years, and let's hope we can maintain this pace as we move on toward our 60th. We are among those few Princeton Classes who have reached this mark.

Special thanks to Rich and Dave Dodge and the Regional Chairs for their outstanding work.

Final results for 1960s 51st Reunion campaign are participation of 68.8% (413 donors) and $188,935. 68.8% is above the 60 final participation rates for 2006-07 (67.0%) and 2007-08 (68.1%). $189K is 13% above the $165,000 dollar goal, substantially above the $153,599 that was raised in the 49th (2008-09) and is the 3rd highest non major dollar result ever for 1960!

Overall Annual Giving (for all classes) raised $50,010,045 from 61.3% of alumni. Our goals were $49 million and 61% so these are strong results and 60s campaign was an important contributor to our effort. Of particular note is that the youngest 5 classes (2006-2010) averaged 73.0% participation and the 1st reunion class (2010) had participation of 83.3%! 61.3% is the highest overall participation rate in the last 42 years.

President Philip Detjens reports that, although final figures are not yet in, it appears that the Class has the second best ever participation rate for Annual Giving in an off year, and the same for the amount raised. Congratulations and heartiest thanks to Rich McGlynn and Dave Dodge, who were in charge of our effort.

pre-game luncheon Harvard game Only a few members of the Class were seen on Harvard weekend, whether at the pre-game luncheon in Jadwin, the game itself, or the post-game cocktail party at Terrace Club (held jointly with the Class of 1959). At the luncheon: (from L) Tom and Peggy Wing, Evan Bush and Mack Emmert, Paul Raeder (long-time Annual Giving liaison to the Class) and (farther right) his partner Bob Holley, Dave and Peg Willard (behind), Lillian Salazar and Mike Southwell, Peter Williamson, Jeff Beaver, Philip Detjens. Seen somewhere but not in the photo: Dave Pearce, Joan Sachs Shaw. There were presumably many others there, but not at either the luncheon or the cocktail party. Those who were there got pleasure from a beautiful Fall day but surely less pleasure from an error-filled losing effort at the game itself.

So far 296 classmates (or 49%) have given or pledged a total of $2.65 million, which beats our previous giving total. Now a $500,000 Class of 1960 Challenge Fund has been established which will match on a dollar for dollar basis all additional and new gifts which are above your previous best. If for example your previous best donation was $100 and you give $1,000, the Challenge Fund will match your increase of $900 and the University will receive a total of $1,900! You will receive shortly a letter providing additional details on exactly how to participate in this program.

A moving Service of Thanksgiving for the Life of Clif Maloney, concluding with the singing of “Old Nassau,” was held on 9 October 2009 in New York City. The Class was represented by Bush, Cartier, Detjens, Fuller, Rousseau, Joan Sachs Shaw, Southwell, and Williamson, some in Reunion jackets. The University was represented by both Paul Raeder ’h62, longtime Alumni Relations liaison, who had worked closely with Clif over many years, and his successor Nat Howe.

John Cartier, Class Treasurer, writes as follows about the Class’s dues collection:

The opening results for our first dues mailing this Fall has been very successful. We have received over 125 responses, including Class gifts and contributions to the Sachs Scholarship Fund. I am hoping that in this, our 50th year, we can do extremely well in terms of participation. My hope is to exceed the ber which would set a new record for participation and give us a strong balance for the Class treasury. An early response from everyone is very helpful.

Efforts for the 50th Reunion are underway and I encourage everyone to return your Registration forms as soon as possible. If anyone has any comments or questions about the Dues Appeal, please do not hesitate to call me at (212) 472-8177 or via email at JCartier@nyc.rr.com. The sooner you respond, the less expenses we will have to incur for additional mailings. Many, many thanks to all those who have already participated and to all those who will participate soon.

Virginia Maloney ’10 writes as follows:

My father, Clif Maloney, passed away last night [26 September 2009] at Base Camp 3 on Cho Oyu in his sleep. [His guide] Marty notified me this morning. Marty is safe and coming down the mountain... My dad's last words before going to sleep were “I’m the happiest man in the world. I’ve just summited a beautiful mountain.” We know that he died doing what he most enjoyed.

UPDATE At approximately 930am local time on 24 September, after a nine-hour climb in extreme cold, Clif summited Cho Oyu, the oldest [by four years] American ever to do so.

Clif Maloney is climbing again. As of this writing, he is camped at 22,000 feet on Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world (8201 m/26906 ft high), on the border between Nepal and China. He is aiming at summiting on Wednesday 23 September. A complete recap will appear on the Wild and Crazy page when he is back.

Our class enjoyed a relatively huge turnout at our 48th Reunion, due probably or possibly to Evan Bush's soliciting participation in an early meeting of the 50th Reunion Planning Committee, followed by a Class Lunch at the Nassau Club. Lunch featured a delicious tilapia entree and the presence of several wives, who toned down the occasional rowdiness of the preceding Reunion Planning Meeting. So many people wanted to attend that we were forced to move some into an overflow room. An incredible downpour at noon cleared up before 2pm, allowing a dry and festive P-Rade. Classmates seen somewhere included Becton, Barth, Beaver, Briggs, Bush, Conway, Detjens, Harris, Hopper, Keller, Kramer, Lippincott, McGlynn, Major, Maloney, Seabring, Southwell, Tellander, Williamson, Willard, and Wing, plus Joan Sachs Shaw, along with assorted spouses, partners, children, and even grandchildren.

what the Sarasota area has to offer were Hobart (Skip) and Janis Swan, Bill and Vivienne Lambrecht, 
Bruce and Pat Higgins and John and Toni Gartner. Unfortunately, none of us brought a camera.

Senior Pauline Yeung has been named the recipient of the 2008 Daniel M. Sachs Class of 1960 Graduating Scholarship. Read the University’s announcement.

Check out the new Wild and Crazy page for some stuff that may be even more interesting than grandchildren.

2006-07

Quenby Williamson, wife of our classmate Peter, died on 11 June 2007. Quenby was responsible for designing and producing our 30th Reunion costume, which we have used, with her help, ever since.
[It is Class policy to announce on the website deaths only of classmates, and then only by listing (as at the bottom of this page), leaving comments to the obituaries appearing in PAW. In this case, we have deliberately bypassed that policy.]

Eighteen members of the Class, plus Joan Sachs Shaw and various wives, attended Reunions 2007.  More 

Our Treasurer, John Cartier, writes soliciting increased support (both financial and otherwise) for the Class. The letter is  here ; a PDF version is  here .

The University has announced two recipients for Sachs scholarships from the Class of 2007: Joshua Goldsmith and Emily Stolzenberg.  More 

Our annual Class Dinner was held with the Class of 1961 on Monday, 5 March 2007, at 6pm at Racquet and Tennis Club in New York City. The featured speaker was Ann-Marie Slaughter ’80, Dean of the Woodrow Wilson School and a Sachs Scholar. She discussed the Princeton Project on National Security, a multi-year research project aimed at developing a new, bipartisan national security strategy for the United States.

Philip Detjens reports as follows on Alumni Day:

I was honored and privileged to represent the Class of 1960 at the Service of Remembrance 
held at the University Chapel in Princeton on Alumni Day on Feb. 24. This Service pays tribute 
to all members of the Princeton Community—alumni, students and faculty—who have 
died during 2006. Our Class had 15 classmates listed.

[See the list of recent deaths at the bottom of this page.]

For everyone's information there were only five people associated with our Class at Alumni weekend. 
They were Dick Deyo, Dave Willard, Even Bush, Joan Sachs Shaw and myself.

The 22 November 2006 issue of PAW contains a letter from Webster Wheelock attacking President Tilghman’s characterization of Princeton during President Goheen’s early years (which coincided with our years, admittedly relatively placid) as “a largely homogeneous college of modest aspirations.” His letter is  here .

PAW recently profiled President Emeritus Robert Goheen  here . An excerpt from a four-hour video interview is  here .

Joe Healey, who left our class after Junior Year to go into the Maryknoll Missionary Priesthood, and since then has been in East Africa, was prompted by President Phil Becton’s letter this fall to write and reconnect with the class. You may read his email  here .

The Tigers won (a share of) the Ivy League title at the Dartmouth game on 18 November. A random and surely incomplete list of those seen at the game is: Beaver, Becton (and wife Betsy), Bellows, Briggs, Deyo (and wife Kathy), Hilles (and wife Jane), Ippolito, Maloney (and wife Carolyn), McMillan, Southwell, Willard, along with Joan Sachs Shaw.  [More] 

The Harvard game on 23 October featured a pre-game “tailgate” at Jadwin (pictures below), a highly exciting game, and a post-game reception at Terrace Club. A total of 17 classmates were seen somewhere or other: Beaver, Bellows, Briggs, Carrick, Conway, Deyo, Friedman, Ippolito, Lippincott, Max, McMillan, Pearce, Southwell, Urbaniak, Willard, Williamson, and Wing, along with Joan Sachs Shaw.  [More] 

Fifty years ago this Fall we were all green freshmen, wandering wide-eyed around the campus. Thanks to Rich McGlynn, we can see what The Daily Princetonian thought about us.  [More]

Princeton raised $40,407,617, the highest amount ever, with a participation of 58.2%. 
the largest number of alumni ever.   The Class of ’60 raised $170,709 with a 
participation of 70.3%. This is the best participation percentage for our Class in

climbing Mt. Hood in Washington.
Special thanks are due to Clif, to Philip, and to all who participated.

Our off year 46th reunion was held on 1-4 June 2006. Fourteen classmates (Achenbach, Beaver, Bush, Deyo, Detjens, Fisher, Hillegas, Hopper, Limoges, McGlynn, Prindl, Southwell, Willard, and Wing) and Joan Sachs Shaw, along with assorted spouses and children (including Margaret McGlynn ’86, back for her 20th Reunion), marched in the P-rade, thankfully dry after torrential downpours just an hour earlier.  More . Dick Deyo represented the Class at the annual Sachs Scholar brunch “send-off” to Oxford. In all, there were 38 Former Sachs Scholars and friends, including  Dan-el Padilla-Peralta , our 2006 Scholar.

Jack Huddleston died on 11 March 2006. His wife Keiko announced his death with the following email message:

Dear Friends,

Please forgive me for sending out this message in the impersonal form of an e-mail, 
but due to the number of Jack's friends all over the world this is the only way to 
promptly inform you all. I am deeply saddened to let you know that Jack passed away 
on Saturday, March 11th in his home surrounded by his two daughters, Shannon and Saya, 
and myself. 

I would like to thank you for your support and encouragement to Jack during this very 
difficult time. Please know that he immensely enjoyed receiving your e-mails and 
telephone calls which cheered him up so much. . . . As Jack wished, there will be no 
service but an open house will be held at a later date for friends.

Gratefully,
Keiko Huddleston

The family has requested that in lieu of flowers remembrances be made to  Princeton in Asia  or to  the University of Washington Jackson N. Huddleston, Jr.'s Men's Rugby Endowment .

Peter Kaplan died on 2 March 2006. A brief obituary from the Nashville Tennessean reads as follows:
Age 67, March 2, 2006 after a long illness. Beloved and respected teacher and physician 
in Nashville since 1972. He will be sorely missed by friends, colleagues and staff at 
St. Thomas Hospital, and in particular, by his family. He is survived by his sister,

You should have received Clif Maloney’s recent appeal for Annual Giving 2005/6. Please be as generous as you can in repaying Princeton for the wonderful education we were all privileged to receive, now, alas, so long ago. Just as important as the size of your gift is the percentage of respondents, so don’t hesitate to give even a token amount. You may contact Clif directly if you wish to.

John Hart Ely has died. Bob Blalock writes that John was “probably the most influential scholar of the US constitution of our time; certainly the most original thinker on the subject. Among other prominent positions he held was his service as Dean of Stanford’s law school. On top of this he was a truly nice person—in the best sense of the term.” The obituary in The New York Times called him “a constitutional scholar of dazzling originality and wide influence.” Watch for the class’s memorial in an upcoming issue of PAW.

John Graves has died. John was a dedicated Princetonian and a community activist on many levels. In fact, he had been scheduled to receive another philanthropic award in Florida next week. A brief death notice in The New York Times for 22 October 2003 reads as follows:

Graduated from Buckley, Collegiate and Princeton University
