We are deeply grateful to the following classmates and friends who have made generous pledges to launch our Fund:
Skip Ahern, Rick Albert & Linda Sloven Albert, Bank of the West*

Stanford accepted me, probably because I was a scientist who could write and had a long enough list of extra-curricular activities to appear to be well-rounded. (Forbes has ranked Stanford #1 this year, perhaps in honor of our GW reunion.) My math degree in ’67 at Stanford opened lifetime doors for me, the first one at the brand new University of California at San Diego (UCSD garnered over $1 billion in research funding this year, among the top ten public universities in the country. Note that all these honors and achievements happened long after I left and have nothing to do with me—I just can’t match the actual accomplishments of some of my fellow classmates.)
After a master degree in math at UCSD I quickly learned that it’s almost impossible to leave San Diego. Please try to vi$it if you can—the continual earthquakes won’t start up again until after you leave (your $).
I crave stability and worked as a software engineer for fourteen years for a company bought by Northrop Grumman followed by twenty years at a company bought by Lockheed Martin. LMT even tried to buy NOC, which doubled in stock price overnight—falling back the next day when the government quashed the deal. I still had enough NOC stock to put my younger daughter through Cornell (it was actually just half of the stock—oh the good old days).
It was an ideal career, combining my love for mathematical algorithms with my zeal to automate repetitive tasks (my license plate is AWTOMTR).
Throughout the years I’ve continued with table tennis and bowling and, especially, singing. Barbershop harmony is my favorite genre, including singing with a chorus that placed second and fourth in international competition. I've even had paying gigs in a Doo-Wop quintet, a style from our own era.
The real loves of my life now, however, are my two new granddaughters—it’s almost unbelievable what joy they bring. I’m looking forward to seeing our class again and honoring our mentor, Dr. Irwin Hoffman.
