Thank you all so much for responding to the questionnaire. If you are not in this issue, you will be in the fall, since we’re limited on words each issue. * Lillian Meyer Haning went from Colby to grad work at Ohio University, where she met her husband. They taught at Penn State for a couple of years, and when the kids came along, Jim decided to take his math/electrical engineering skill into industry. They moved to California in 1955, just after their son Doug was born. Her children Geoff and Leslie are native Californians. They raised the kids there and explored all the Western states. For 20 years she had a great job writing marketing copy for Sunset magazine, which celebrates the West. Sadly, Jim died way too young, at 61. She’s had two weddings in her backyard and has four grandchildren with one off to college this fall, though not Colby. She travels to the Northwest since both sons live in Portland. She hiked in the Hood River area with her Intel-engineer son and his family, and attended a lively birthday party for her jazz-musician son, who lives in a warehouse. She went to Hawaii with her daughter’s family and has been to Scandinavia, the U.K., and China. Lillian is a gardener and a birdwatcher, and she walks in the Baylands, plays bridge, and reads. * Harry and Janet West Williams have been married for 60 years, have three children, and seven grandchildren. They’re still working part time in their remodeling/design company. Janet volunteers at the Crosswicks Library and the historical society, and is involved in Quaker projects and activities. They’ve traveled to Hawaii, Alaska, England, and Italy, and current trips are to college graduations and extended stays at their camp in the Adirondacks. Jan also keeps busy with bridge, a book club, college courses, some walking, and doing something we all are trying to do: ridding her home of much junk! * Alan Silberman and his wife, Mary, live in Stratford, Conn. Alan still works in real estate. They have daughters Lauren and Alison ’00, but lost their son, Bobby ’03, tragically to Ewings Sarcoma. Alan skis, plays tennis, hikes, and volunteers at the Kiwanis Club. * Rev. Charles Smith lives in Providence, R.I., with his wife, June (Wellesley ’49). She is past state regent R.I. Daughter of the American Revolution. Their oldest son, Stephen, is a development economist at George Washington University and author of many books about Third World development. Since Charles retired to Providence after 40 years as a Congregational pastor, he has studied genealogy and discovered Puritan and Pilgrim ancestors. He is chaplain of the R.I. Sons of the American Revolution and is national chaplain, USS LSM/LSMR Association. An LSM was a WWII landing ship. He conducts annual memorial services and sends cards to bereaved family members. He and Mary have been to Italy and the Czech Republic to be with their sons temporarily living there. He also keeps busy with his two-family house and has served as president of Hamilton House, a nonprofit senior center in Providence. * Margaret “Peg” Rodgers Jones Nichols writes that neither of her two spouses or children were Colby grads, but her daughter, Ann Jones-Weinstock, worked in Colby’s development office for a number of years. Peg is in a retirement community near her daughter’s family. Watercolors, walking, swimming, and volunteering at the Sheldon Museum, with Knitting for Kids (community support), and as a library cataloger at The Lodge keeps her busy along with bridge, book club, and Vigorous Minds, a computer program at The Lodge. Right after she wrote Peg was going to see her freshman-year roommate, Mary-Lou Roberts Friberg ’49, to play bridge. “I bet none of us can sit cross-legged on the floor as in old Dutton House bridge,” she added.
