50th Reunion Yearbook

Dear Members of the Colgate Class of 1973,

Here it is—an advance copy (in pdf) of our 50th Reunion Yearbook, including a record 169 profiles submitted by our classmates. Its title is Come Together, in homage to the great Beatles song, and in the hope that we can all come together in Hamilton June 1-4. For me and for my co-editors—Eleanor McNees and Steve Worthy—it has been an honor to work on this book. We are proud of the years it chronicles, and of the lives it celebrates. We are also deeply grateful to Margie Palladino ’82, and her team at Reunions Reinvented for the brilliant design and format. We think this 50th Reunion Yearbook is one for the ages and hope you do too.

The book has now gone to press. You will receive a hard copy in the mail sometime in April. In the meantime, enjoy this advanced look.

Roger Ferlo, Yearbook Editor
