Ellen Waters and husband Paul have two children, Dana Sclafani ’05 and Ross, who graduated from Harvey Mudd College in California. Both kids worked for Lehman Brothers, Dana as an investment banker in NYC and Ross at the Eagle Energy subsidiary in Houston, Texas, and now they’ve both changed jobs but stayed in their respective cities. Ellen and Paul are retired from long careers in banking, finance, and education (Ellen did a 10- year stint as a teacher). They spend five months at their home on Figure 8 Island in Wilmington, N.C., and seven months at their home in the Woodlands, just north of Houston. Ellen was lucky enough to travel with Dana through Spain, Italy, Greece, and Turkey. In May, they toured the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, and Russia. Ellen enjoyed summer at the beach swimming, biking, reading, and watching the waves with a beer in her hand. A New York Times-bestselling author of sports-related nonfiction, Sally Williams Cook recently published How to Speak Baseball: An Illustrated Guide to Ballpark Banter, co-written with James Charlton. In it, Sally seeks to “decode the amusing, clever phrases that pepper commentary about the sport” and share anecdotes that illuminate baseball history. She observes, “It’s been a big hit, and although the book hasn’t been out long, it’s already in its third printing.”

Matt Rosen passed along the sad news

that Christine Wright Hanley died on May 2. He offers this tribute to our friend and classmate: “Chris possessed both physical beauty and a beautiful spirit. In her work as a resident assistant in McClellan Hall and head resident in Thompson House, her quiet confidence, caring, and concern for others were always palpable. These qualities, along with her intelligence and ability to con- nect with others, were cornerstones of her life as a mother, friend, and business owner. Her positive attitude, combined with the loving support of her family and friends, enabled her to manage her cancer with incredible grace and resilience. We extend condolences to husband Daniel and their four children, including Christina Hanley Becker-Birck ’06.

History major Charlotte Bonelli never thought she would return to the Saratoga Springs area to research a book. But she did, in preparing Exit Berlin, about an extended Jewish family whose members flee Nazi Germany to points around the globe. Charlotte, who is director of the American Jewish Committee Archives and Records Center, based the book on WWII- era correspondence from the estate of a German Jewish refugee who headed for America a week before Kristallnacht and who tried to help the relatives she left behind. Charlotte did genealogical research at the New York State Museum in Albany, N.Y.
