John Silver writes, “Lee ’65 and I sold our house and bought a top floor (third) condo on a large canal—it included a lift and slip for our sailboat. Last month nine intrepid contemporaries and I (which is to say crazy old poots) sailed from Useppa Island (near Sanibel) to Tampa Bay in the course of a week.” * Jerry Shapiro says, “Lots happening in my life: Still teaching at Santa Clara (my 52nd consecutive year in college), new granddaughter, new book on the boomer generation (Finding Meaning, Facing Fears in the Autumn of our Years). In memory of my roommate, Gordon Bowie ’65, I dug back into my old reel-to-reel tapes of the Colby Folksong Society and converted them to mp3s. It’s been fun reconnecting with Mary Stinson Bowie, Lois Lyman, Nancy Green King, Wayne Fillback, and Erik Thorson, and sharing our music and erstwhile careers as folksingers.” * Bob Gelbard reports, “I’ve just completed eight years as a member of the Colby Board of Trustees and am now term-limited out. It has been a wonderful experience. All indicators are tremendously positive, and it is really exciting to be on campus with outstanding students and faculty. (Colleen Khoury also stepped down after 16 years as a trustee. Jim Crawford continues, so we had three ’64 representatives on the board these past eight years.) My wife, Alene, continues as a member of the board of governors of the art museum. For those of you who have not seen the construction of the museum’s new addition, you’ll be astonished by its beauty. I continue my second career as a business consultant, mostly in Indonesia, but also Latin America, the Middle East, and Central Europe. I’ve been traveling to Jakarta almost every six weeks—great for frequent flyer programs, not so good for the body. I’m also on several corporate boards, both in the U.S. and in Indonesia. We still live in D.C. but try to spend as much time as possible at our house in Friendship, Maine. We had a wonderful hiking and wine-tasting trip to Argentina early this year, but didn’t do both simultaneously. The hiking was outstanding in southern Patagonia. Our daughter, Alexandra ’03, is working on her doctorate in sociology at Michigan State and does her research in Cuba.” * Art Fulman writes, “As I approach my seventh decade, I remain active as a lawyer, while transitioning cases to a younger colleague who will ultimately take over most of my files. I continue teaching a course on municipal law and public policy at Suffolk University Law School. I love the interaction with students. They keep me on my toes with their questions and enthusiasm. I’m also active in local government in Concord, Mass. Travel remains a major interest. This year it’s South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. My twin grandchildren live in Wellesley, and my wife and I do whatever we can to spoil them, consistent with the strict rules set down by their parents! I see Doris Kearns Goodwin from time to time. Her son Joe is at Harvard Law School and is running for the state senate. Her son Michael is a highly regarded history teacher at Concord-Carlisle Regional High School. Doris, of course, remains very busy writing, speaking, and appearing on various TV shows.” [Editor’s note: You’re actually approaching your eighth decade, Art. Congratulations.] * Don Gilbert says, “After 30 happy years in Houston, Susan and I are about to make a fresh start in the Golden State. She has been offered the role as head of human resources at the University of California, Davis. My business is ‘portable’ and can benefit from an extension of my network into Calif.” * I’ll be sending a class letter soon with more of your news and views. Many thanks!
