Reunion - We did it again!

The Class of '54 bears greeted us on June 5 and were not only hugely appreciated by classmates but were popular among other returning alums and the university.  Thanks to Les Papenfus Reed who masterminded the big bears and their tiny counterparts that decorated windows and tables.

Check the Events tab to see a list of those who attended, how to see or post pictures, and more. 

A new officers slate was also approved.  Please see below for names and email information.

Peg Bundy Bramhall takes over our Class History

The late Robert Martin did a wonderful job of assembling the information provided by a number of classmates. The current history is a .PDF file of over 100 pages and has some surprising and fascinating stories from a number of our classmates.  Take a look..  

Unfortunately, Robert passed away in 2013. Peg Bundy Bramhall will be taking over this responsibility and will have more information for you at a later time.

Coming soon...

Keep these dates in mind: 

  • Homecoming is October 17 and 18th. This will also mark the kickoff of Cornell's sesquicentennial events.
  • Cornell Hockey at Madison Square Garden - Saturday, Nov. 29 at 8 p.m.
