Your response to my questionnaire was terrific--more than 30 --each full of news! It's fun to get mail other than bills and ads. Tim Glidden Jr. and wife Katharine Lyon live in Topsham, Maine, with girls Sophie, 6, and Emma, 8. Tim is now deputy director of the Natural Resources Council of Maine. Katharine is a therapist. Tim is on the local school board, where he finds basic satisfaction and frustration. He still "collects" rock 'n roll, would like to be sailing around the world and would not give up much of what he's doing now. He asks if all of you are still crazy (after all these years). . . . David Bailey is a conductor, music teacher and instrument repairman in Nashua, N.H. Dave has had two original compositions and four arrangements published by Falls House Press. He loves the flexibility he has to spend lots of time with wife Alison, a violinist, and children, Seth, 5, and Emma, 3, and he especially enjoyed conducting Mendelssohn's violin concerto with Alison as soloist. . . . Leslie and Paul Barresi live in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, with Hannah, 4, and Joseph, 2. Paul is an anesthesiologist. . . . Alan '71 and Kathe Misch Tuttman write from Andover, Mass. Kathe is assistant DA in Essex County, and Alan is a criminal defense attorney. Jessica, 15, and Andrea, 13, are involved in tap and jazz. Kathe and the girls are active in the Youth Commission at their synagogue. Life is "insanely busy" with two careers and two girls, but they enjoy the challenge and try to find time for tennis and skiing. . . . Candace Burnett loves living in New York City and teaching Latin and communications in a public high school. Husband Larry Small is a performing artist. Cooper, 12, and Julia, 9, attend public school and study arts with the pros (a concert pianist and Joffrey Ballet school respectively). Candace collects--and is trying to get rid of--books, books, books. She wishes she were writing her 200th published story and running a marathon, wishes she weren't running up her credit cards and would like to know if you are becoming more spiritual as the third millennium approaches. . . . Attorney David DiCola writes from Providence, R.I., that he enjoys traveling with his nieces and nephews. He is very much involved in a neighborhood group dealing with a local college to manage student/town problems. He wishes he were traveling in Europe and that he could be taking advantage of everything available! (Dave would like to know what one experience at Colby had the most impact on your life.) . . . Diana (Susan) Stork is a harpist in California. Spouse Teed Rockwell is a musician and philosopher. Diana, who is on the board of directors of the San Francisco Harp Society and produces an annual harp festival in northern California, is looking for any Colby chums in California and for any who play the harp. She wishes she were not working so hard on the business aspects of the harp festival and that she were making more money, but she does love the music! . . . I'm out of space--more next time!

Philip McCahill writes that he has lived in the Rochester, N.Y., area (currently Pittsford) and been employed by Xerox Corporation for almost 15 years. Even though he has experienced no real change being 40-plus, his daughter, Martha, 10, thinks her dad is already "over the hill." Being parents is a full-time responsibility for Phil and his wife, Mary Elizabeth. Their daughter was very ill, but after 13 surgeries, all is well now, though it was not an easy time. The three of them enjoy spending as much time as possible at their Cape Cod home. Phil is looking forward to our 20th reunion in June. . . . Bill and Barby Beran Muller are living in Falmouth, Maine, where Bill is general counsel and Barby is computer consultant at UNUM in Portland. Daughter Molly, 5, and son Maynard, 9, are "truly the joys of our lives . . . parenthood can be a challenge, but a most pleasurable one." For Bill, the best thing about being 40 is still being alive . . . Maryliz Moynihan Levy and husband Rob are now parents of two: son Daniel Benjamin, 4, and daughter Rebecca Abigail, born April 1994. Maryliz works for NYNEX in product marketing but has stopped being a "workaholic" in trying to maintain a healthy balance with family life. The Levys are enjoying the suburban life in Wellesley, Mass. . . . grass, trees and space to put up the swingset. Being a parent for Maryliz is "by far the most remarkable achievement of my life." She will definitely be at our 20th reunion . . . she only missed the 15th to get married! . . . Pamela Bradley Burton was married in September 1993 in Gloucester, Mass., and is now stepmother of three (ages 25, 22, 16). Pamela works at Progress Software Corporation in Bedford, Mass., as international marketing manager and travels all over the world. Her favorite cities continue to be Paris and Rio de Janeiro, with Norway receiving top ratings for spectacular scenery. She and husband Ross attended the Olympic winter games in Albertville, France, in 1992, "a very special experience." Pamela is also very involved in the Boston chapter of Women in World Trade as a board member and in planning their monthly programs. . . . I recently learned that Pete should be now addressed as Major Peter B. Coz, USMC. Last summer he was transferred to the Washington, D.C., area to go "back to school" after many years in sunny southern California. One of Pete's latest endeavors is rollerblading (or in-line skating). He has worked up to competing in 5K and 10K races. . . . I hope you all are starting to think about our 20th reunion in June!

Our class has been productive and successful this year judging from recent news I have received. Congrats go out to Nancy Piccin, who was named New England Media Advocate of the Year by the Small Business Administration, for her reporting on business issues in the western Massachusetts region. Nancy writes for the Springfield Union-News and Sunday Republican and in her spare time performs community service in the areas of education and teen pregnancy prevention. Nancy credits Kim Marsh, in part, for her marriage to blues musician Rich Adelson: Kim apparently taught her "how not to throw like a girl," which led to an active softball career and a chance infield meeting with Nancy's future husband. Great story! It reminds me that I also met my spouse-to-be after a softball game, only I think it may have had more to do with learning how not to drink like a girl, and I was the student. . . . L.A. King was recently ordained a priest in the Episcopal Church in Safety Harbor, Fla. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Edward Cole Chalfant, Bishop of Maine. . . . Margaret Buck Hagstrom, who works as a marketing consultant in Goffstown, N.H., was named to the board of directors of a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping abused and neglected children. Margaret completed her master's in international management with distinction and teaches economics in her "spare time." She writes that Kathy Hastings Van Dorn and husband Dick recently celebrated the arrival of baby Stephanie. . . . Fellow marathoner Ben Thorndike reports that he is managing director at Scudder, Stevens and Clark in Boston. Ben and wife Joanne (Lynch '80) are busy juggling three kids and regular visits from Bob Woodbury. Ben isn't sure which is more taxing: work, the kids, marathon training or Woody's visits. Ben shared a real nice thought that, of all his professors, he respects Charlie Bassett the most "because he still remembers how my papers could have been better!" . . . Kathy Jackson writes from Brightwaters, N.Y., that she is the associate executive director of a branch of Planned Parenthood. Kathy is married to an attorney and is busy raising two sons (Taylor and David) while holding down her position as a "full-time working professional mom." . . . Alix Land recently obtained her master's in social work and works in Portland, Ore., with disturbed children and their families. Alix loves Portland for its beauty and diversity and says she is keeping politically involved fighting a right-wing citizen's group. She reports that Dan '76 and Debbie Cronin Dawe have a daughter, Allison, and a new son, William, and are living in Yarmouth, Maine, where Debbie is employed as a controller for Cole-Haan. . . . Paul Harvey is still the finest dentist in Portsmouth, N.H., where he and wife Rebecca are busy bringing up Paul III and twins Andrew and Elizabeth and plan to build themselves a new house soon. . . . Susan Plummer Mastyl now freelances as a medical/scientific writer in Norristown, Pa. Sue recently married Bill Mastyl. . . . That's the bottom of the mailbag, folks. Please drop me a line soon.
