In the University’s service
When Alumni Service Medals, recognizing a lifetime of outstanding contributions to Chicago, were presented to Robert Feitler, X’50, and Joan Feitler, AM’55, during an Alumni Weekend convocation in Rockefeller Chapel, Bob Feitler responded by thanking the institution: “The true reward,” he said, “has been my seven-decade relationship with the University.”

Four the public good
The Alumni Association honored a quartet with public-service citations.
A pioneer in vision restoration surgeries, Walter Kahn, MD’59, teaches ophthalmology at Hahnemann Medical School in Philadelphia. As a 20-year volunteer with ORBIS International—working with its “flying eye hospital” and in hospitals in the Philippines, West Africa, Haiti, India, Mongolia, China, Latvia, and Uzbekistan—he has trained more than 1,000 local physicians.
