with SmartWood and support efforts to save old growth trees." You can
contact Herb via e--mail at email@example.com. Some of us have taken to the
skies: Joan Saks Berman, AB'62, writes, "I was in Norway in June to
attend the Women's Worlds 99, a.k.a., the 7th International Interdisciplinary
Congress on Women, held on the university campus in Tromsö, north of
the Arctic Circle," while Avima Ruder, X'62, an epidemiologist for the
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in Cincinnati,
presented the results of her research on the mortality of dry cleaners
at the International Conference on Epidemiology in Occupational Health
meeting in Herzliya, Israel, in mid--October. From Sandra Jackson Cohen,
AB'62, we hear that, at summer's end, she returned home to Annapolis
after "completing the harvest at our blueberry farm in Michigan and

wooded cliffs of the farm." When she is not harvesting, Sandy is the
assistant attorney general of Maryland. Janet Varner Gunn, DB'62, AM'64,
sent us her very first alum message: "Following 17 years of ongoing

George Phillips (Tosca in Philly, 1961)." From Queens College, Jack
Zevin, AB'62, MAT'64, announces that his new book, Social Studies for

Associates of Mahwah, NJ. Barbara Flynn Currie, AB'68, AM'73, majority
leader of the Illinois House of Representatives, writes, "I had a good
spring legislative session, sponsoring a variety of measures that made
it to the governor's desk. Some of my favorites include prohibiting
corrections officials from shackling women during labor and childbirth,
requiring unsolicited commercial e--mail solicitations to identify themselves,
establishing pilot programs to beef up training for welfare recipients
on their way to the world of work, and requiring parents to keep firearms
unloaded and out of the reach of children." Keep up the great work,
Barbara; those of us in your district are pleased to have you represent
us. As 1999 moves to its end, we wish you a healthy, happy 2000 and
hope that all of us last longer than New Dorm, which is to be razed
in the millennium. Don't let the Y2K bug bite. And keep us posted with
your cards, notes, and calls. College alumni, please send your news

I are renovating the house that we own on Crete."
College alumni--Deanna Dragunas Bennett, AB'67, writes: All our classmates
seem to have gone to ground and become un-- communicative over the summer.
This could be because of summer activities. Or is this because we've
become introspective at the prospect of most of us celebrating a 55th
birthday next year? This is a more important milestone for your class
correspondent than 50 because I will become retirement eligible! Since
there's no new news, I've again mined our reunion book to share some
of the wide range of avocations noted by classmates. Alfred J. ("Sandy")

in a coronary artery. I await a second round of the same for a blockage
in another artery." Harvey Mantel, AB'73, AM'76, writes, "Married and
family life have been going very well for us; Titania and I will be

which celebrations it was great getting together with all the mutual
friends in attendance--likewise our SSA 20th...Losing one of my best
friends, Joshua Fein, AB'73, was tragically difficult--we all pulled
through it; such losses are indeed painful--as when late, great brother
Dr. Fred departed this world in January 1992 after a valiant three--month
battle with pancreatic cancer." An adult inpatient psychiatric social

The Class of 1995 celebrates its 5th reunion June 2–4, 2000. College
alumni—Kathleen Abbott, AB’95, writes: I finally have some Class News
of my own to contribute. After four years, I decided to stop talking
about it and actually started law school at the University of California,
Davis. It’s a big change from Chicago (they won’t give me $1 shakes
on Wednesday, and no one understands the need for big orange chairs
in the library), but once it snows in Tahoe I’m sure I’ll get over it.
Since she and I did everything together in college, I guess it is only
fitting that everyone’s favorite Montanian, Nadine M. Horning, AB’95,
is also back in school. Nadine is getting her master’s in education
at Montana State University in Billings. If anyone would like to contribute
to the Kath-Dean Education Fund, please feel free to e-mail me! I recently
heard from another classmate who is back in school. Charlotte E. Kaiser,
AB’95, writes, “After four years of living in New York City, I decided
to return to Chicago to finish my last two years of law school. I’ve
managed to see some alumni here and there, but I would love to hear
from any of you who are in the Chicago area or elsewhere. Please e-mail
me at c-kaiser2@ nwu.edu.” On May 29, Andrew A. Moshfeghi, AB’95, married
