Richard Zipser retired from a long career as professor of German literature, and most recently as chairman of the University of Delaware’s department of foreign languages and literatures. Richard is now working on an English translation of a memoir, which was originally published in German. He looks forward to another book project, volunteer opportunities, and travel. * Living in Washington State, Dick York uses a wheelchair but enjoys going to the shore to listen to the waves and remember his 60 years of sailing. He sees Maddie and Jim Harris once a month. * Linda Spear Elwell lives in Sanford, Fla., where she and her husband play golf, read, walk, and enjoy friends, children, and grandchildren. They travel to their home in Wells Beach, Maine, where they are “revitalized and relaxed.” * Janet Stoddard Gagnon reflects that she has a “blessedly ordinary” life in Charleston, W.V., where she and her husband have brought up a son and a daughter; there are now six grandchildren. * Spending the winter in Florida, PJ Downing Curtis and her husband visited with Will and Barbara McFaul Cook. PJ and John cruised to the Panama Canal and are back home in Maine, where they had lunch in Blue Hill with Pam Harris Holden ’65. * Dick Larschan attended weddings in California and visited a longtime friend in Sweden. Dick teaches mini-classes for “seniors” at the 92nd St. Young Men’s Hebrew Association and at All Souls Unitarian Church, both in New York City. He says he’s covering his bets! In Westport, Mass., for the summer, Dick is near his older daughter’s family and visits John Sitkin and Bob Mangion’s wife, Johanna. * Steve Schoeman states that after dealing with prostate cancer he now realizes “that what matters in life is not what so many people think matters. In my advancing years my focus is upwards toward heaven and not down here amidst all the tumult and noise.” * Peg Chandler Davey and Martha Schatt Abbott-Shim hiked the southern end of the Appalachian Trail last spring. The highlights “were catching up and rekindling their friendship from long ago, the trail’s physical challenge, and talking with fellow hikers along the way.” * Jean Martin Fowler’s third great-grandson has arrived to join three sons and eight grandsons! Jean lives in northwest Florida and this summer hosted the entire Fowler clan. A plan to move to a condo will free Jean and her husband from house and yard chores, and they look forward to traveling to National Parks in the West and back to New England. * Barbara Carr Howson babysits her two-year-old granddaughter once a week and also visits her husband at a nursing home several times a week.
