Alumni Notes: November / December 2008

More news is needed and should be directed to me at mkane40@gmail.com.

Several good Class of '62 sightings this August while your Corresponding Secretary and spouse Nancy vacationed in the Bar Harbor (Maine) area. Phil and Meredith Moriarty have been summering in the village of Northeast Harbor for over 20 years, and were kind enough to host Nancy and me to lunch at Phil's terrific Harbor Club (Phil happens to be President of this fine institution); where by chance we were introduced to another long time summer resident of the area, Dick Habermann, which led to Nancy and I being the fortunate dinner guests of the Dick and Carol at their beautiful Northeast Harbor home (in late stages of a massive renovation). Dick retired this year from the Fidelity fund organization, where he had a long and successful career capped with senior executive and fund management positions, while Phil remains engaged in his executive search practice in Chicago. In the small world department: Phil revealed that he, Dick, and I were fellow Freshman residents of Bingham Hall, "back in the day"! Capping off this serendipitous August, Nancy and I hosted Roger and Judy Clapp, who drove to Bar Harbor for a civic dinner and stayed overnight with us. Roger retired from NJ law practice several years ago, chose Addison, Maine as his permanent residence, and proceeded to become a large landowner there, complete with lobster boat. He and Judy are living in their garage while they construct a suitable country manor, and meanwhile are very busy with all sorts of community projects including land preservation activities along the Maine coast.

Further news from Chris Cory is that his recent ankle fusion surgery went well, and while recuperating and unable to move about he is focused on developing a massively muscled upper body.

As noticed in the previous YAM, in June our classmate Don Pillsbury, of Manhattan, died unexpectedly of a coronary after a day of biking while hiking. An obituary appeared in the NY Times, while an obituary for our www.Yale62.org website is in preparation by Bob Oliver and is online at this link. As his memorial service in Manhattan showed, Don had many friends in the Class of '62 who will miss him greatly, and his many contributions to our class and to Yale are widely recognized. Recently, word has come of another loss to our class with the death of Bob Kemp, of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, in September, after a brief illness. Bob earned an MBA at Harvard after graduation, and went on to a business career in Detroit, founding his own firm there with a childhood friend. He leaves his children and many grandchildren, and many friends. We will have an obituary in a forthcoming issue of the class website.

Speaking of www.Yale62.org, please send me your news!
