To The Great Class of 1952
It was with a mixture of surprise, pleasure and humility that I received the beautifully framed letter of appreciation from George Aman at our Class dinner Friday evening of our 65th Reunion, particularly after I later had a chance to read it carefully.  As you all know, I did not expect to be president, and certainly John Clutz deserved the honor in view of his many years of devoted service to the class.  It was a great honor to be president of this remarkable class and a challenge to live up to the standards set by those who preceded me as president. A heart felt "Thank You to all who signed the letter and to the Class for allowing me the privilege of serving as President of the Class of 1952, 2013 - 2017.      Put Brodsky
