CLASS NOTESJanuary 1976
In his three years as head class agent, Caleb Loring put together a fund raising team that collected, from us, $75,000 in much needed donations to Dartmouth. Caleb is turning over the demanding head agent assignment to Paul Doscher in 1976, when increased participation, our participation, will be the goal.
Caleb's magic money touch is apparent to his employer, the First National Bank of Boston, which recently promoted him to assistant vice president. Jamie Stewart is also toiling for the 1st.
A couple of interesting husband-wife (wife-husband?) occupational combos to report. Out in Portland, Oregon, Jeff Rogers has left a local Public Defender office and become an Assistant United States Attorney, in the civil division. He chose his office with care. It's right next door to that of veteran U.S. Attorney, Kris Rogers, of the criminal division, and at night Kris gives Jeff pointers on how to adjust to the Government routine.
Dr. Herb Brown has completed a year's stint as chief psychiatric resident at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston (if anyone remembers that old joke, please let me know), and is now a staff psychiatrist at Cambridge, Mass., City Hospital. Betsy Brown is right by his side - a social worker and administrator in the hospital's alcoholic rehabilitation unit.
Also involved in rehabilitation is Bob Cowden. First there's that massive old building in Charleston, Mass., that he's putting together by hand. More important is the program he runs to rehabilitate prison inmates by teaching them commercially useful skills like auto repair.
If you know where Topsham, Maine, is, write and let me know. I can't find it on my trusty Rand McNally. Everyone is eligible except King, Wilkoff and Aley - they live there.
Actually King can enter, he hasn't been there very long. Gus just arrived from Washington to open a private law practice, and now that he has an extra mouth to feed (James, the third boy) he can use business, so get into a little trouble.
As for Dr. Bill Wilkoff, he's busy at the nearby Naval Air Station, and Jack Aley works for the Maine Times. We'll probably have to wait until those guys form a Dartmouth Club of Topsham before it gets on the map.
Mead Over, who's nearly nailed down his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin, has been named an assistant professor of Economics at Williams College .... Jeff Wheeler is in Rio (4 blocks from Ipanema) with the Chase Manhattan Bank and Leslie, holder of a Masters in Public Health, is with him .... Roger Kline spent 18 months working on a project involving a new type of investment service for individuals, then sold it to a New York bank (large) which must remain unnamed. Rog has named his next employer, and it wounds like an honest job for a change, with McKinsey, the consulting giant, in New York.
Write a little to 440 E. 79th St, 10021. We're always open.
