This has been
a lost summer for yours truly due to my elderly father's death and
time spent June-August in Florida and August-September with my
86-year-old mother after his death. So a brief communication this
I received a
note from our old friend Max Eliason in Salt Lake City that
he and his wife Joyce celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary,
and his three children already have provided him with 10
grandchildren. Since his youngest has only one so far, Max has
great expectations of eventually getting to No. 1 class
grandfather, something extensively discussed in previous CCT
letters. Best of luck and see you at reunion 2001.
Lauterborn, believe it or not, is entering his 14th year as
professor of advertising at UNC. I remember when he started and
time is fleeting. He recently received the C.D. Crain Jr. Award
from the Business Marketing Association for "lifetime
contributions" and worries that people think he has peaked and is
finished. Go get them Bob, and keep at it. See you also in

significant others at the fun occasion in addition to Steve, Dan
Link, Larry Gitten and Mark Novick.

The New York Times and son Danny '95 is completing his
residency at Columbia P&S. Another son, Lewis, is a doctor at
the Yale Medical School. Alvin reports that our classmate Steve
Fybish has developed an encyclopedic knowledge of the weather
and delves into the subject as a hobby. So comprehensive is Steve's
knowledge that he can describe the weather on any day in the last
50 years. So, Steve, is there global warming?
Loconto is CEO of Deloitte & Touche Consulting Group, a $3
billion consultancy operating in 32 countries. When not on a plane
jetting here and there, Pat indulges himself in his hobby, cooking.
Although he also enjoys golf, cooking is Pat's passion. He and
Wanda live in the New York area, while sons William, a musician,
and Patrick, a marketing executive, are both Texans.

much-traveled Dick Waldman has sent us his latest itinerary;
let's see if we've got this straight. Dick lives in Inishannon,
County Cork, Ireland. He teaches at the University of Maryland, but
his classroom is in Heidelberg, Germany. Two days after moving to
Ireland last summer, he was on a plane to the U.S. to attend '58's
40th reunion. He was back in New York this spring for the 50th
reunion of his Brooklyn Tech high school class. Dick will return
this year for the wedding of his son, Mitch E'90, and his mother's

big media news, who ya gonna call? For a high-powered panel to

correspondent was struck by the number of communications that
announce retirement or some variation on the theme. Is the proper
reaction tempus fugit, or perhaps carpe diem? Rabbi
Albert Axelrad, a regular correspondent over the years as
chaplain and Hillel director at Brandeis, has decided to "step down
and move on." Brandeis's president commented that Al "will be
missed. He has helped shape much of what Brandeis is today." Al
says that the move means "retirement to" and ''reconfiguration,"
which doesn't sound a lot like fishing. He is now adjunct professor
of religion and chair of the Center for Spiritual Life at Boston's
Emerson College and may undertake other institutional posts on a
Morgan, already enjoying retirement, relates some good news in
his burgeoning activity as a painter. The well-known Ward Nasse
Gallery in Soho is including Bob's work in its year-long salon,
which means paintings on exhibition and in the bins and photos in
the artists' book. The exhibition opened in September, and works
will be on view through next July. At deadline he relayed the news
that he will have two works in the Apocalypse 1999 juried
exhibition at the Williamsburg Art and Historical
William Fuld puts the word "retired" in quotes, so we know
something else is up. After 16 years as an Anchorage district
judge, he is keeping busy as a pro tem, presiding over felony
Nordlund, on the other hand, sounds like he is ready to relax
completely in Brookfield, Conn. Flying was his profession, first
for seven years off carriers in the Navy and then for 31 years on
international routes for TWA. Just as TWA removed the B747 from
service, Norm hung up whatever it is pilots hang up. He likes
having more time with his wife of 37 years, three happily married
children, a grandson and lots of hobbies.
