Don Dunbar, from Fairfield, Conn., is founder of Dunbar Educational Consultants and author of What You Don’t Know Can Keep You Out Of College. He’s had an office in Hong Kong for 11 years and has a business trip to China planned. His wife, Susan, retired from medical practice, and his daughter, Megan, is a psychologist for Kaiser in Portland, Ore. * Charlie Morrissey, professor emeritus at Pepperdine Graduate School of Management, sold his first company (1966-1978), to Houghton Mifflin and in 1978 headed to California. He earned a Ph.D. at Claremont Graduate University in 1997. He’s currently chairing an Internet venture, study.net, that provides academic content online to M.B.A. students. Four of his five children attended Colby. * In June, Dick Abedon and 16 family members, including eight grandchildren, visited Normandy and stayed at a château that was Eisenhower’s WWII command post and also where the Germans surrendered to the Americans. * Ruthann Simmonds MacKinnon returned to Maine from six months in London and Georgia visiting friends and family. She went to Mumbai and Malaysia, where she taught at the University of Malaya 20 years ago, then on to Goa, Kerala, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar. * Lucy Blainey Groening toured Morocco—the High Atlas Mountains, the Sahara, gorges, and valleys. A drive south along the Atlantic coast ended an exciting trip. She attended her grandson’s graduation from SUNY’s School of Environmental Science and Forestry. * Audrey Tanner and sister traveled to Finland to look up paternal relatives in Helsinki. A lunch with some Finns proved interesting: neither Audrey nor her sister speaks Finnish! Audrey’s only grandchild, Julia, graduated from Smith this June. * Barbara “BJ” Davis Howard celebrated her husband’s 80th birthday at Thanksgiving with the entire (100 percent) family! One grandchild graduated from Connecticut College, and another is off to University of Cape Town for the fall. BJ serves on the board of CONCORA, a singing group, and attends 50 concerts a year, including the Hartford Symphony. She and her husband look forward to spending time at their Vermont cabin. * Abbott Otto “Peter” Greene spent the last two winters as a charter fishing captain in Key West and summers in Maine as a captain for Bar Harbor whale watch. If he passes his USCG physical next spring, he can continue as captain until 85! If you’re in Bar Harbor, look him up at the ticket office. After retiring from airline flying, he and wife Nancy Hubbard had a fishing lodge on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska, for 20 years. After Nancy’s death two years ago, he sold the lodge. He recalls his visits to Colby in the late 1930s, his interview with Bill Bryan ’48, and their last visit with Dr. and Mrs. Bixler, in Salzburg, Austria. * Dave Sortor recalls lyrics, “How age has taken (his/her) beauty and sin has left its sad scar.” But time has not damaged Colby friendships: the Jubinskys, Weys, Bramhalls, Zullingers, Zambellos, Hunts, Lunders, Zieglers, Marshalls, Kinsmans, Pughs, Brownie, Stebbie, Andersons, Conklins, Haggetts, Wymans. A Sortor grandson captained the Bowdoin football team, and Jake O’Malley was a wide receiver for Amherst. Dave still owns the Sherborn Inn, where his wife Rosemary (Crouthamel) has nurtured beautiful gardens for more than 25 years. * Some of the above friends gathered in Waltham, Mass., to hear Doris Kearns Goodwin ’64 speak about political issues faced by Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Johnson and how those issues reappear in current political debates. She spoke of her early life, her love of baseball, and her experiences as wife and parent. Her next book is on Theodore Roosevelt. * As the Darien High School year comes to an end, I find myself looking forward to a respite from the academic routine. I’ll spend a week studying classics at Dartmouth and take a trip to France to visit my daughter (married to a Frenchman,living in Orleans). Happy summer to all!
