32 Stoddard J. Small, PhB’32, reports that in trying to track down friends from the “olden days” at the U of C, he found Gilbert F. White, SB’32, SM’34, PhD’42, and Paul E. Locklin, X’32.

38 College alumni—George C. McElroy, AB’38, AM’39, writes: Paul A. Wagner, AB’38, is retiring—again. He retired from his management consulting company ten years ago, then continued consulting (including in Vietnam), but is swearing off. The color campus newsreels Wagner took in 1937–38 have faded irretrievably, he says. Gene C. Davis, AB’38, after working his way through the University leading a jazz band and playing everything from string bass to valve trombone, regrettably decided there was more money in law than in music and became one of Chicago’s leading probate lawyers. He has retired to houses in Lake Forest, IL, and Naples, FL, and has gone back to jazz. Ben B. Blivaiss, SB’38, SM’40, PhD’46, a physiology professor at the Chicago Medical School of the Finch University of Health Sciences, is also the university’s assistant chief academic officer.

College alumni, please send your news to: George C. McElroy, AB’38, AM’39, 1411 E. 54th Pl., Chicago, IL 60615. Phone: 773/288-4918 (h).

Other alumni news: Seymour Meyerson, SB’38, won the 1993 Frank H. Field and Joe L. Franklin award from the American Chemical Society for his work in mass spectrometry.
