Charlton Lewis ’48

I was deeply saddened by the recent death of our classmate Bud Lester. Bud and I roomed together on the third floor of the Upper School. We were both on the gymkhana team. We camped together on extra day trips in the Sespe. And much else. Bud may have been the most popular guy in […]

Sam Wright ’48 and CdeP 1948

A nice note from Charlton Lewis saying he was happy to read our class notes in the latest Thacher magazine about our 70th reunion, saying it was a little too far for him. Charlton and Roxane are living in a community in Redding Connecticut, outside of Stamford, conveniently located, he says, about an hour from […]

Five members of the class of ’48 returned for our 70th reunion in June: John Bissell, Peter Dunne, Sandy Walker, Elliot Hayne (and Judy) and Sam Wright (and Terry) (Terry and I subsequently celebrated our 67th wedding anniversary in September). I heard from both Sid Liebes and Chris Boyle who were unfortunately unable to be there. The […]

Sandy Walker ’48

Continuing architecture for my sixth year at a rather slow pace. Still see Sam Wright, Peter Dunne, and Elliot Hayne. Kay and I share four of my grandchildren. One doctor, one film maker, one Fulbright scholar in Turkey, and one making very good Keenan wine, while in Brooklyn I have two high school boys and their mom […]

Over 40 years ago, a group of Bay Area alumni started what became an unbroken annual tradition called the “San Francisco Do Nothing Except Have Christmas Lunch Club.” This past December, the gathering, held at the Pacific Union Club courtesy of Elliot Hayne ’48, included: Jim Acquistapace ’61 Bill Bucklin ’48 Brooks Crawford ’51 Peter […]

Sandy Walker ’48

Still afloat and trying architecture still. See Sam Wright, Elliot Hayne, and Bill Bucklin often, and enjoy grandchildren. Two at Stanford, one playing ice hockey, one in pre-med at USC, one doing Keenan wine with his father, and a stepdaughter who won the Pulitzer prize for fiction a year ago. I am amazed; it must […]
