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:
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).

The Class of 2000 has been announced as the winner of the 2015 Quenby Williamson Best Reunions
Costume award. Underneath the round medallion is "Game of 00s" which appears to be some sort
of play on "Game of Thrones."

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.

was there also but doesn’t get any credit for photography.

The University flew its flags at half staff in honor of Gillispie, and its news story about his death is
