Class Agent Pete Foster Pete Foster writes: “I noted Tom McCoy’s ’03 comments in the February T-P in Touch and would like to offer a ‘ditto.’ As class agent, I have pleaded with my classmates for years in an effort to raise our percent contribution. There were 70 classes represented in the February issue. Only eight (11%) were at 32% or better. Think of all that potential to help T-P grow! As for me, I continue to plug away at the real estate business. Family is all well, and Jayne still puts up with me! My best, as always.” Bruce Moody is happily preparing for the casting and production of his theater work, Skittish, in San Rafael, CA, in June. Skittish is actually a collection of 12 short comedies, each one for two actors, two chairs, a table, and a door. They are written for all age groups and genders, and according to the talent that shows up for the auditions, six will be performed. Bruce is marketing Skittish to little theaters and community theaters around the Bay Area and around the country, for the plays are perfect for such theaters and such audiences. Bruce was a writer and editor on the National Lampoon during its heyday. His work has appeared in The New Yorker, Look, and The National Review. One of his first theater performances was in The Necklace of the Madonna with Bob Rafelson ’50 and Rory Harrity at Trinity-Pawling in 1950. Both Rory and Bob went on to big time Hollywood movie makers. Accordingly, Bruce advises anyone at T-P interested in future success in the theater to find The Necklace of the Madonna and perform this work at once. Pete Ten Broeck is still doing consulting work, volunteer work, and keeping busy.

Al Fisk writes: “I’m 86, my wife is 80, and we live on Sonoma Mountain. We have five children, two doctors, one teacher, one scientist, and one banker whom we see frequently. I am on the board of Sonoma Classical Music Society, which I started four years ago. I go to a book club and work in my garden that has 57 roses. I like to cook and can still beat my kids at cribbage sometimes. My wife is good at crossword puzzles.”

Class Correspondent John McDermott 618 Shady Lane Placentia, CA 92670 (714) 993-1373 JTMcDERMOT@aol.com Class Agent Henry Fisher Henry Fisher tells us: “Happy to be retired, spend time as a volunteer driver to assist ‘shut ins.’ Our daughter, who is a doctor, along with her husband runs a mission hospital in Koza, Cameroon. Our son is an attorney in San Francisco, and his wife is a pediatrician with the U. of California San Francisco Hospital.”

Class Agent Ike Van Wagner Tuck Noble has had a busy 2008, so far. He is president of the local barbershop chorus and was show chairman for their big show in March. He also sings in a barbershop quartet, plus a quartet at church. He is director of public relations for his Rotary Club and writes articles for the Arizona Republic, in addition to teaching two writing courses at the local community college. He is putting the finishing touches on his fourth novel, Ever the Twins Shall Meet—a sequel to his novel, Changing of the Gods, which was published two years ago. In September, he and his wife, DenisAnn, will travel to Israel and Jordan for a two-week excursion in the Holy Lands. Tuck also wrote to us about the following classmates: Phil Haughey is still working and enjoying it. He remains in touch with Tony Leeds, Tom Crowley, Terry Ray ’55, John Troy ’54, and Dick Clasby ’50. Phil says: “Dick’s grandson Will ’08 is a student at T-P and a terrific athlete like his grandfather! Hope everyone is well at T-P.” Quincy Hunsicker and his wife, Carolyn, continue to enjoy retirement in Switzerland (Zürich, Klosters, and Lugano) and their twice-a-year visits to San Francisco. This summer, they are taking their children

and grandchildren on a sailing trip in the Grenadines, since it is hard to visit them each year in Singapore, Minneapolis, and San Francisco. This means that they won’t be at the T-P class reunion since they are saving their overseas travel time for the Grenadines in July and August. Gil Lamb reports that he and Linda will celebrate her 70th birthday with their firstever cruise on Holland-America’s 14-day Baltic cruise beginning June 3. “It’s going to be great,” he forecasts. They are still involved with the Historical Society—a passion of Linda’s, in their Bellville, TX, home. As for Gil, he enjoys computers, newsletters, planting more fruit trees, and waiting for the Texas Blue Bonnets to hatch. Finally, he states proudly, “I still need no assistance (at age 73) to get out of bed.” Jeff Nugent—you remember, the studious one—says that he is “Pleased to be in my 44th year of teaching economics at USC, where, in contrast to a lot of places, the students get better every year. But teaching is also getting more difficult every year. “Last week I had a short visit from John Thorne from the Development Office of T-P, showing impressive engineering drawings of the new dining hall that will soon be under construction and available to our next reunion. I was most pleased to hear that, thanks to a generous donation from some alumnus/parent, T-P will start teaching Chinese. In my opinion that is a brilliant move. Greetings to all!” Bill Rewalt was featured in an article in the Grand Cayman Net News, in which it was reported that the local Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Central held its changeover night in late October 2007. Bill was honored as one of the founding members of this chapter, which continues its signature community service projects of “bus shelters, cleaning up the beaches, home repair projects, Junior Achievement, improving and enhancing literacy, Take a Kid Fishing, the science fair, and now the burglary prevention program.”

Alumni from ’55 to ’03 Enjoy Game on Renovated Tirrell Rink
Almost 30 alumni, ranging from the Class of 1955-2003, returned to campus in February for the first Alumni Hockey Game played on the newly refurbished Tirrell Hockey Rink. The game was followed by a reception at the home of Amy and Brian Foster ’79. Many stayed to view the varsity team compete against Kent School in the semi-annual night game. Patricia and John Tirrell ’50 were on hand to accept a jersey signed by all of the players, in honor of his father, Dave Tirrell, the late coach for whom the rink is named. Many family members witnessed their husbands and dads playing hockey for the first time! A good time was indeed had by all, and with a couple of Advil after the game, all was better.

Class Agent Alan Davoll George Luce was on campus in February to participate in the annual Alumni Hockey Game. George was the most senior skater in the game and played in honor of his friend and classmate Pete Harrington, who passed away in December and was one of the best skaters in our day.

Since 1996, when he retired, he has been a volunteer/activist full time on civil rights issues; president of the Pennsylvania Alliance for Democracy, board of directors of ACLU Pennsylvania, and now on the

board of ACLU Massachusetts. Over the years, he has been on the boards of Noville, Inc., an international flavor and fragrance firm; Kendal at Ithaca, a large retirement community; Big Brothers/Big Sisters; Community Foundation of the Twin Tiers; Barclay Friends School; and other community boards and committees. Clark married Jane Collett in 1965 and they have two sons and three grandchildren, all of whom live within 30 minutes. He says, “Life is good.”

Bill Dunbar updates us on his family’s adoption experience: “As we worked through the adoption process from Vietnam and having selected the last name of our daughter, Lauren Dunbar, to match the name of both a dorm at T-P and an award given at graduation, the main concern on our minds was, of course, would she be a T-P supporter? We breathed a big sigh of relief when we received the final set of photos of her from her orphanage in Saigon shortly before we had to travel to pick her up. “For a Vietnamese she’s taking well to snow sports—we hope to make a skier or snow boarder out of her!”

Class Agent Andy Baker Se Young Jeong writes us: “I am doing well here in Seoul, Korea. When I left TP last summer, I stayed in Fort Lee, NJ, commuting to N.Y.C. almost every day to prepare for the LSAT’s in September. I took it and I did OK. After the test, I just couldn’t stay in the States anymore, so I decided to come home. Coincidentally, my old Army friend referred me to an editing position at Kim & Chang Law Firm, the most prominent law firm in Korea, one week before my departure. Two days after I came home, I interviewed and got the job, the very next day! I’m learning legal languages these days. I met Arch, Gay, and MacGregor Robinson in Seoul this past November. They look great! I really do miss T-P and seeing them was a big relief for me. I wish to spend more time with them. Please tell everyone hi for me!” Will Vandeveer had a new baby boy on July 30th, 2007. He was accepted to the nursing program at Puritan Valley Community College.

of 101 on February 6, 2008 in her Pawling, NY, home. Loretta Ruth Stafford was born on September 10, 1906, in Fonda, IA. Her experience as the daughter of a Methodist minister persuaded her that life with a minister was “restrictive,” according to an interview with The Times in 1969. She and four college friends vowed never to marry ministers. In 1913 Miss Stafford’s family moved to Detroit, where she graduated from high school and attended what is now Wayne State U., the Detroit Free Press reported in 2006. She graduated from Syracuse U. She paid for her education and her brother’s by selling ribbon in a department store, among other jobs. Her college roommate introduced her to Dr. Peale, then a pastor in Syracuse. “He held my hand a fraction longer than is necessary, and I thought to myself, ‘Now this is going to be interesting,’ ” she said in the Post-Gazette interview. She said it took two years for her to make up her mind to marry him. “No way did I want to be a pastor’s wife,” she said. She became that and much more: chairwoman of Guideposts; founder of an organization that says 600,000 prayers a year for people who request the service; and originator of the Knit for Kids program, which distributes sweaters to children in

need. She wrote several books, including The Adventure of Being a Wife (1971) and Secrets of Staying in Love (1984). Mrs. Peale is survived by her daughters Margaret Peale Everett of Sherman, CT, and Elizabeth Peale Allen of Pawling; her son, Dr. John Stafford Peale of Virginia; eight grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.
