What’s the news? We are always eager to receive your news at the Magazine, care of the Class News Editor, University of Chicago Magazine, 1313 East 60th St., Chicago, IL 60637, or by e-mail: No engagements, please. Items may be edited for space. As news is published in the order in which it arrives, it may not appear immediately. Please specify the year under which you would like your news to appear. Otherwise, we will list: (1) all former undergraduates (including those who later received graduate degrees) by the year of their undergraduate degree, and (2) all former students who received only graduate degrees by the year of their final degree.
28The Class of 1928 celebrates its 70th reunion on June 5–7, 1998. Ralph M. Buchsbaum, SB’28, PhD’32, who celebrated his 91st birthday in January, closed his “retirement business,” The Boxwood Press, to devote his time to writing second editions of his books The Living Invertebrates and Basic Biology. Nonagenarian Eloise Bailey Singer, PhB’28, goes “to business” every day with her son, Col. Ralph Bowen; drives a car; and writes, “I generally keep up with the crowd.” Singer has her grandfather’s 1876 diary, which tells how he courted her grandmother. After marrying, the couple moved to Chicago and lived with their three children near Jackson Park. Singer’s grandfather had an exhibit of pails in the 1893 Colombian Exposition.
29 Evelyn B. Oppenheimer, PhB’29, notes that the first chapter of her book A Book Lover in Texas (University of North Texas Press, 1995) makes “much personal reference to the U of C.”
