Hal left all his papers - 25
years at State & 35 at Sustained Dialogue/Kettering to George Mason's
School for Conflict Analysis & Resolution. Their library is
digitizing all 50 or so archival boxes. I commissioned a portrait of Hal
to hang in GMU's new conference center, Point of View, that they've named The
Rosalynn & Jimmy Carter Center - a mini Camp David. I hope to have an
unveiling mid - late November w/presentations by some GMU students who used
Hal's papers in their research. I hope you'll be able to come.From: Bob Eby

Connie and I are staying active while enjoying life here at The Cedars retirement community. Still raveling a lot - NYC, San Francisco, Chicago, Wisconsin, and some to Lewis & Clark territory. Also go each year to Santa Fe, NM for a week of opera.

Under the leadership of Ed Tiryakian members of the Class
of 1952, along with other Princetonians, met on April 16th for our annual
spring luncheon in Durham, N.C.
The bottle of Seavy wine shown in the picture was
provided by Ed and illustrates the importance pf past achievement that
continues. Bill Seavy's family, sons and daughter, Dorie, maintain and improve
the family goal of providing fine Estate Wine.
At the gathering Dr. Kieran Healy, a Princeton PhD, gave
a review of how graphics may be used for
digital analysis and understanding. Poorly done, Dr. Healy showed how digital
analysis can result in "fake news", although he did not use the term,
We are pleased that Ed is doing such a fine job of
keeping us focused. His reward will be in Heaven.

and I have a small cottage at The Forest at Duke CCRC in Durham, NC. Two of our
3 children and families are within 45 minutes and the youngest daughter and
family are in the process of moving from Natick, MA to Vienna, VA… 4.5
hrs distant by car. Nancy and I are celebrating our first great
grandchild. I confess it does seem odd to me that my daughter is a
grandmother. Hope you and yours are doing well.

HI George and All:
As indicated by the message below Ellen and I attended the service for Gary
yesterday. It was superb, in every detail. Not to be missed. I’ll send a copy
of the program to anyone who wants one (It’s 6 pages).
"Dear Mrs. Andlinger and Family:
I am writing as the President of the Class of ’52 to express to you the deepest
sympathy of the Class on the death of your husband Gary who was our loyal and
My wife Ellen and I attended your beautiful service yesterday celebrating
Gary’s life held in the Princeton University Chapel. We heard the words of
respect and gratitude from Princeton’s President and Gary’s colleagues and then
the loving remembrances from his family. We sang the hymns and
listened to the beautiful music (the magical flute). All of that gave us a
wonderful picture of Gary and his family.
Then we enjoyed the fine hospitality at the reception in the Andlinger Center.
There we met several people who had worked with Gary, including two who
described him as "spiritual” and "a great man.” We are sorry we did not meet
you. However we will have fond memories of the occasion, and the Class
will long remember Gary.

My name is Karis Cha, and I am a student at Princeton University, in part thanks to the Bruce A. Beery, Class of 1952, Scholarship. I just wanted to reach out and say "thank you" for allowing me the privilege to attend this prestigious school that would have been beyond my wildest dreams.
I am graduating this year from the Woodrow Wilson School. I have been focusing on health policy and international development; my thesis is on family structure in India (specifically, how parents' marital quality affects children's health). On campus, I am mainly involved in Manna Christian Fellowship, in which I serve as a junior small group leader, and Six14 Christian Dance Company, for which I am the president. I have enjoyed many wonderful friendships born out of my time at Princeton, as well as much academic and spiritual enrichment. again, thank you for your family's contribution to my stay here.
Please let me know if you are on campus in the coming semester, and I would be glad to meet you or show you around campus. My email is email@example.com. Blessings, Karis Cha
