Clint welcomed two great-grandchildren this past summer, bringing the total to nine! The couple was also busy entertaining rela- tives. Their family members are spread all over the country, but they all love to come back to visit their folks in Norwich, Vt.


’44 N MAY 29–JUNE 1 Phyllis Emmerich Blair traveled back


to her home town of New Castle, Pa., in August to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the family business, Blair Strip Steel,


Libby Cone Gardner and


Our 70th reunion was great! I attended with my daughter,


The class extends its deepest sym- pathy to the family of Adrienne


with the company’s employees and retirees and their families. Phyllis’s three children and a grandchild were on hand; she calls the event “overwhelming.” Phyllis later headed for her villa in Boynton Beach, Fla., across from the Country Club of Florida, where she’s an avid golfer. Phyllis has recently picked up playing bridge too, and enjoys it. She recalls leaving Skidmore in 1942 to work at General Electric in Schenectady and later moving to NYC to work for Bell Labs, where she met her husband. He passed away in 2003. Peggy Gluck Wolf spends summers in Maine. The Tucson, Ariz., resident is grateful to be healthy and able to travel a lot. She welcomes hearing from older Skidmore alumni living in the area. Doris Merz Wyckoff has three grand- children and five great-grandchildren. She traveled from Lake Worth, Fla., to New Jersey this past summer to attend a family reunion. One of her favorite freshman- year memories involves Monty Woolley (the star of Broadway’s The Man Who Came to Dinner), who bought Doris her first legal drink at the New Worden Hotel in Saratoga. Many of us remember the New Worden and its Michelob beer and cheese popcorn. Maxine Weingarten Donofrio visited Saratoga this past fall. On her way to take a special sightseeing train to the Adirondacks, she stopped to take a walk around the old Union Avenue campus, which “brought back wonderful old times!” When not busy in real estate, Maxine has lots of fun with her two great-grandchildren. She spent a month on Key Biscayne, Fla., last winter. “What an elegant island!” At age 92, Maxine speculates that she is the oldest living member of the Class of ’44. Class president Ronnie Whiting Brandon loves hearing what’s new with every member of the class. Daughter Bobbie flew in from Denver, Colo., to drive her to Boston and Cape Cod for vis- its with her three great-grandchildren this past summer. While there, Ronnie also celebrated several 90th birthday parties and family reunions.
