25th Reunion

1991 — Twenty-fifth Reunion

Cary A. Koplin


It was a terrific weekend, more than living up to expectations! The old Campus was filled with more than 800 of us, including 382 classmates, 252 spouses and “friends” and 169 children. But for a downpour on Thursday night (thank goodness for the tent) the weather was spectacular. It was great to talk to so many old friends, many of whom hadn’t been seen in New Haven for twenty-five years.

The festivities got off to a great start on Thursday afternoon with a panel led by our class vintners, Ted Elliott, Josh Jensen and Leigh Wilson (who deserve a tremendous “thanks” for generously donating 50 cases of wine for the class dinners). Their theme, “Vines and Bottles: Not a singing Group” was enjoyed thoroughly by the ninety plus attendees. After cocktails and buffet dinner in the tent we were serenaded by the Whiffenpoofs and Whim ‘n Rhythm of 1991.

Friday featured three lectures/panels which were not only well-attended but also stimulated some lively discussions. John Bockstoce, our Northern explorer, presented in the morning a fascinating slide show of his several trips through Arctic waters.In the afternoon, Tom Porter moderated a panel on “Community: Our Families, Domestic politics at Home – Our Health and well-Being.” Panelists included Stephen Clement Lynn Harrison,Jonathan Lieff and Steve Shelov. Highlights included Lynn’s warnings about heart disease and Jonathan’s (better received) prediction that many of us have a good chance of living to 1001 The politicians in our class then led a stimulating discussion moderated by Al Warren and featuring Frank Heintz, Carl Pike, Dick Tolbert and John Kerry.

Cocktails Friday night started at the tent on the Old Campus, migrated to the quadrangle adjacent to Beincke Library and were followed by the Class Dinner in Commons at which Biff Folberth and Murph Levin presented a giant $4, 196, 600 check to Benno Schmidt representing the amount donated/pledged to date toward our Twenty-Fifth Reunion class Gift. (The books remain open so we still have a little time to set another record.) Yale class Awards were presented to TomBarry, Biff Folberth I Cary Koplinand Murph Levin in recognition of the time and effort they have expended on behalf of our Class during the last ten years. Entertainment in the tent that evening was provided by the ten living Whiffenpoofs of 1966 and our own RichLook.

Saturday’s activities included a panel on the global village and classmates’ involvement in international activities with TomBarry as Moderator and including Chris Armstrong, Bill Burke, Jeff Koplan, George Littell and Dave Pinkham Most of us spent the afternoon at the Class picnic at Holiday Hill in Cheshire, where a proud Biff Folberth and “ringer” partner, Chips Barry, defeated their erstwhile opponents from the Class of ’71 to win the tennis tournament. Cary Koplinand GregWeiss were elected Co-Class Secretaries and AndyBerkman was elected Treasurer. After dinner in commons we repaired to the tent for dancing to the music of “Straight Lace” featuring songs of the 60s.

Everyone agreed that the Classbook was a great success and a catalyst for attendance and the special feelings evident throughout the weekend. We are indebted to Federal Express Chairman FredSmith, who on extremely short notice agreed to ship the Classbooks free of charge to all classmates.

We intend to schedule numerous regional Class events during the next five years leading up to our thirtieth reunion, and we look forward to the continued participation of as many as possible of the members of the Class.
