1972 Jerry Tunnell, associate professor of mathematics, Rutgers University, and Floyd Spencer, owner, Sfhire Consulting, completed
a cross-country bicycle trip Sept. 25-29 from Highland Park, N.J., to Syracuse, N.Y. Ted Cox, professor of mathematics, Syracuse University, accompanied them during the last part of the journey. Jerry’s bicycle trek is a national election-year tradition. He’s already planning a New Jersey to New York bicycle trek in 2016.
1973 REUNION YEAR Robert McOwen has written and published an e-textbook (www.
) on differential equations and linear algebra. It is being used for all sections of the course at North- eastern University, where he is professor of mathematics.
1974 At the Mathematical Association of America’s Mathfest in August, Dan Kalman was part of the cast for “MAA the Musical 2.” He
also received a Trevor Evans Award, with coauthor Nathan Carter, for the year’s best MAA math article in the guise of a Harry Potter parody, entitled “Harvey Plotter and the Circle of Irrationality.”
For the last 10 years, Tony Noe has been contribut- ing to and editing the large collection of integer sequences at http://oeis.org
, which contains more than 200,000 sequences of inte- gers. Tony and Beverly Orth, married 37 years, have two daughters, Kate and Alison. Tony continues to sell his thin film coating design software worldwide.
Beverly Orth (shown above, left) has begun a graduate program in creative writing at Portland State University. She is also a full-time consultant for Mercer.

1977 Richard Brandt, who worked for 11 years freelancing and writing books, launched the online publication and email newsletter Green
Computing Report. His two most recent books are The Google Guys and One Click, available in 15 languages. He’s working on a book tentatively titled Seven Entrepreneurs.
1982 Mark Anderson is connecting 1990s-era Furbies to the Internet for a piece (working title: “Fly By Wire: A Post-Furby
Metamorphosis”) as part of an upcoming group show at Barrister’s Gallery in New Orleans. Find show details at automatanola.wordpress.com
1988 REUNION YEAR In the almost 25 years since graduation, Julia Freer Goldstein has
taken a convoluted career path. She is now a technical/scientific writer, working part-time for SLAC editing scientific documents and as a freelance commercial writer. Julia writes about many topics, from accelerator physics to semiconductor components. Both Julia’s boys are now in high school, and Alex, 16, wants to apply to HMC having heard stories about her college days.
