Michael Lynes recalls that freshman meeting where we were told about the high probability of marrying another freshman in the room. He took it to heart, marrying Kristine Bowen. Last year their son Matthew ’05 married Maureen Sherry ’05. Like father, like son! Meanwhile, their daughter and a fellow Middlebury graduate are making plans for wedding festivities in both the U.S. and Kathmandu, Nepal. * Harry Friedman has traveled twice to Cuba: first with an art museum group in 2003, prompted by the idea of streets full of 1950s cars, but that was not the case. Americans were a rarity there in 2003. Second trip, eight years later while traveling with a theater group, Harry discovered he was one of very many Americans. * Jeffrey Frankel wants to clarify that his title at Massage Envy is chief legal officer, not chief learning officer. (So much for googling “CLO”!) His company is a contra-indicator of the economy, doing very well the past three years. This summer a trip to Europe is planned with his wife and daughter. Son Derrick is a graduate student in Los Angeles studying cinematography. Jeffrey figures the next step is contemplating retirement, when he will manage his rental houses, learn to play the guitar, and reread all his Colby textbooks. * Dan Alexander, a mathematics professor at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, experienced two milestones last year: daughter Caroline started her first year at Wellesley, and his academic book about mathematics history, Early Days in Complex Dynamics, was published by the American Mathematical Society. Feeling he had been working on it forever, Dan said the book was written with two Italian mathematicians. Obviously a few trips to Puglia, Italy, were required! Younger daughter Elise is on her way to a career in the thespian arts. * Karen Chadbourne has begun an intensely rewarding counseling internship at a group home for adolescent girls as part of a master’s degree program leading to a “retirement” career in counseling. Karen spent several years working with art therapy at the local children’s hospital, and she plans to bring the expressive arts into her counseling activities. A recent school project in Hollis, Maine, involved co-leading a women’s group in building a medicine wheel, based on Native American traditions. Her present career is as a full-time financial analyst for Pratt & Whitney. * Camilla Moore Doctor has worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs for 21 years and the federal government for 31 years. Honored to serve our nation’s veterans and active-duty service members, Camilla works for the VA in mental health services and residential rehabilitation treatment programs in the Hampton Roads, Va., area, where she and husband David live. She also works for CARF, an organization that accredits rehabilitation facilities, and is very involved in her church and community. Last summer, while attending her 40th high school reunion, she visited with classmates Jackie Lindsey Wynn and Sylvia Hodges Melvin. No thoughts yet of retirement as she still has a 26-year-old son living at home and in graduate school. * Lisa Turtz Birnbaum finds it fascinating and rewarding to work in private practice as a psychiatrist for two medical groups in the Bronx. Many patients improve greatly with medication adjustments, and Lisa feels quite appreciated as the only psychiatrist in her medical group setting. Daughter Zoe graduated from Colgate last year as a neuroscience major, and medical school is next on the horizon. Zoe is also a ballet dancer and, after working two summers with a neurologist at the N.Y.U. Movement Disorders Clinic, she became fascinated with the use of dance therapy for patients with Parkinson’s Disease. Younger daughter Rose, a sophomore at Mt. Holyoke, is majoring in English with a studio art minor.
