Chief scientist for weapons of mass destruction at the FBI's labs at Quantico, Ben Garrett recently co-authored Historical Dictionary of Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Warfare. These days he spends most of his time outside the laboratory, traveling extensively in his work with foreign governments and federal agencies. Sally will retire in 2010 as chief nurse executive of Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute.
Columbia, S.C., attorney John Foster represented Governor Mark Sanford in the well-publicized constitutional case centering on the governor's right to refuse federal stimulus funds, which in this instance amounted to over $700,000,000. The governor lost, but John's argument before the state Supreme Court was a thing of beauty. Both daughters are working in finance-Vesta as an international equities trader with BofA in Portland, and Isabel in money management with Sanford Bernstein in Atlanta.
Our man in Phnom Penh, George Hannen is teaching at Pannasastra University of Cambodia and doing real estate investment projects in Southeast Asia, mostly beachside development and rubber tree plantations.

After retiring in 2007, Terry Esterkamp and wife, Nancy Lloyd, went to work in candidate Obama's Colorado campaign, with Terry eventually serving as a state delegate. He's running his best 40 since Camp Carolina, lifts like crazy, and claims to have revived his moribund tennis game. First grandchild, Avery Ireland Esterkamp, celebrated her first birthday in May.
Jane and Doug Cook celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary in April, just about the time they completed a vacation house on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. The Cooks have four grandchildren with impeccable Davidson credentials-daughter Sigrid '91 and A.J. Morgan '90 have two children, and daughter Gretchen '97 and Coley Dominiak '97 also have two. Doug is executive VP of Bollinger Insurance in Short Hills, N.J.
Penny and Joe Kilpatrick live in Winston-Salem, close by daughters Megan and Jennifer, and granddaughters Eleanor and Greta. Joe continues to consult with North Carolina non-profits, relationships born of his many years with the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation.
Robert Norfleet likes the fact that daughter, Katie, a med student at UNC Chapel Hill, participates in an innovative new program that permits her to complete third and fourth year rotations in Asheville-near his favorite trout streams-rather than bouncing around the state. Robert lives in Danville, Va., where he works as senior director of business and operations for the state's Institute of Advanced Learning and Research.
After a long and productive career in occupational medicine at Cleveland's St. Vincent Charity Hospital, Pat Bray does clinical work two days a week and volunteers at the inner-city Horizon Science Academy, a public charter school, as its AP American history teacher. Bette serves as dean of the college of science at Cleveland State University.
Kay Oser of Bloomington, Ind., married Davis Liles at North Litchfield, S.C., on June 14. They will live in Charlotte, where Davis is an architect with AECOM, when he is not volunteering for Davidson. He and Frank Heiner chaired the record-setting 2008-2009 Class of 1970 Annual Fund campaign, which exceeded goal with 85.4 percent participation and $140,787. Bill Gammon is assisting Frank and Davis in this year's 40th reunion campaign.

John transferred and graduated from University of Texas, where he also got his law degree. He enjoys gardening and running, and ran in the 2008 Boston Marathon.
Paul Peteet has practiced internal medicine with the University of Georgia Health Services in Athens for the last 20 years. When not attending to student medical needs he likes to hike, camp, and jog. He and Amy have two grown daughters.

Jeff Lynn is the president of Dunham Sports, a chain of 155 sporting goods stores stretching from the Dakotas to Pennsylvania. He and Kathy live in Clarkston, Mich., a suburb of Detroit. They have two grown children, and make it when they can to their house in Florida. Jeff talks frequently to Steve Baldwin, who lives in Davidson and works for Airgas.
John Carlson is in the midst of retiring from 35 years practicing litigation and appellate law in Nashville. He met his wife, Kathe, at Vanderbilt law school, and she is now a freelance writer. In retirement, John is looking forward to reading history and doing traveling that was postponed when he was working.
For the last 35 years, Brian Evans has practiced commercial real estate law in Charlotte. His firm recently merged with K&L Gates, an international firm. Brian and Kathy have a grown son and daughter and two grandchildren living in Charlotte. They relax by going to their house in the mountains of Ash County, N.C.
For the last several years Frank Dana has been practicing elder law with his own firm, Upstate Elder Law, P.A., in Greenville, S.C. He has found that field rewarding and good change from the adversarial aspects of litigation. Frank and Susan have a daughter, Caroline, who graduated from the University of Georgia in 2008. Frank is still playing tennis, and his U.S.T.A. team won the state championship in 2009.
Correction: It has been brought to my attention-by Judy Redding-that she has been married to Spencer for 30 years and not the person I identified in the class notes in the spring issue of the Journal.

News from our 35th reunion! Fifty-eight classmates managed to arrive in Davidson before the end of the reunion weekend. The food, drink, and service provided by the college were excellent and abundant. There was plenty of time for catching up with everyone. The college looked in great shape! Spring Frolics is not anything like we were accustomed to. Thanks to Charlie Slagle for chairing the '74 reunion organizing committee, to Jerry Godbehere for the slide show, and to John McCartney for his humble dinner address. Kudos to Bill Giduz, Herb Dimmock, Frank Folger, Bo Phillips, Jim Alexander, Bill McIlwain, and Mike Thomason for keeping the basketball tradition alive (albeit 3-on-3 half court instead of 5-on-5 half court). Drew Gadaire '12 (Steve Gadaire's son) was the hero on the baseball field, hitting the winning home run in the seventh to defeat UNC Greensboro. Our 40th reunion is in 2014. Mark your calendars now. Pictures from the our 35th reunion are available at: davidsoncollege.printroom.com/. (At the site, select "Davidson College 2008-09", then "Reunion Weekend 2009," then "Alumni Weekend - Class of 74.")
JB Fawcett, who was raised on third Watts but transferred out to UNH, has been found. Contact me if you want more information.
John McCartney didn't wait too long after stepping down from the Davidson Board of Trustees. Covance Inc. announced in May it has elected John to its board of directors.
Lieutenant General Jack C. Stultz became chief of Army Reserve and commanding general of United States Army Reserve Command on May 25, 2006, after serving as the command's deputy commanding general since October 2005.

Stultz served as the commanding general of the 143rd Transport-ation Command, which provides command and control to 12 units in the southeast United States. Jack recently retired from Proctor and Gamble after 28 years of service.
Our condolences to Mark Monson on the death of his father, Dr. Donald Malvin Monson, on May 31.

Gus Succop wrote, "Our daughter, Anna, has been admitted to the Davidson Class of 2013! Looking forward to our 35th class reunion April 23-25 of 2010. Hail, O Davidson!"
Congratulations to Rick Mullen, who was promoted by Coastal Federal Credit Union to senior vice president and chief lending officer.
Secretary: Michael S. Pappas, St. Louis, MO; 314-973-7799 (c); firstname.lastname@example.org
Many congratulations go out to members of our class who are making marks in and supporting government and its administration on both the federal and state levels. Bill Winkenwerder, who served as undersecretary of defense for health affairs from 2001-07, now is in a different sort of private medical practice: that of providing strategic consulting services to companies and health care organizations. His company has been engaged by none other than Johns Hopkins HealthCare to develop programs to benefit returning and wounded military personnel and their families, as well as healthy behavior programs. Bill has attracted national attention with his expertise, and continues to give speeches around the country, as well as work with charities for cancer and for returning veterans with brain injuries and mental health disorders, as well as the Davidson Athletic Foundation. Wife of 22 years, Pride, and son, Will, are doing well. Bill still lives in Alexandria, Va., and keeps tabs on "political currents"-his wording!
Similarly, Howard Ling has been director of UNC Pembroke's M.B.A. program since the spring. The program attracts all ages and is accessible from three different campuses. Howard will certainly put his own inimitable stamp on the future business leaders of North Carolina!
Richard Wassen writes from Roseville, Minn., a Minneapolis suburb, where he is doing well as a senior fellow at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities.
Although Ed Willingham was mentioned in the last issue, he and Carol (Connor) '77 have done the math for Davidson's version of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Granddaughter, Connor, daughter of son Kirk '01 and daughter-in-law Reid '00, has been hopefully given early acceptance to the Class of '29! Seriously, Ed, many of us can't think that far out-or are too afraid to!
Pete West vows that, after 30-plus years of having a piece of him stay at our beloved institution but never coming back to claim it, that he will, in fact, show up at our 35th in April 2011. You heard it here first. Pete has an aviation industry consultancy, West Advocacy Group, in the Washington, D.C.-area, and is also in government and industry affairs for the Next Generation Air Transport-ation System from the Joint Planning and Development Office. You're busy, Pete, but not that busy! With all those contacts, surely someone can fly you down-see you in '11.
Speaking of '11, let's all commit to coming en masse for our 35th. After all, the "Largest and Dumbest Class" can pull it together to set a new kind of record that will hopefully help expunge the memory of our low collective GPA!
From the Alumni Office:
Congratulations to Jim Wynn, who has been elected as president of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network/United Network for Organ Sharing (OPTN/ UNOS) board of directors. Jim is chief of transplant surgery, professor of surgery, and Mason Distinguished Chair in transplant surgery and immunology at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.
Our sincere condolences to John Dunn on the passing of his father, J. Ralph Dunn, Jr. '43, on July 9.

Attention fellow female classmates: our fifth annual beach weekend at Ocean Isle is Nov. 6-8, so please join us. Several folks are coming for the first time, so don't let prior non-attendance hold you back. I promise that a very special experience awaits.
Linda Jones Kopel shared a fun note about Terry Hummel's visit last March: "Terry was in town promoting his movie, Rock Prophesies, which had its world premiere at the Dallas AFI film festival. Terry included us in his entourage, which meant we got VIP treatment at the premiere and party afterwards. Our two teenage boys and their friends were so excited to be a part of this rock and roll experience. They loved the movie and hanging out at a club until the wee hours listening to loud, rowdy, live music performed by some of the movie's stars. Both boys have questioned us repeatedly about our connection to Terry.... I don't think they can quite grasp how Mom and Dad could possibly know someone that cool!"
Alan Edmonds reported that back last October, Bob Westmoreland was on Jay Leno's show. With the presidential campaign in full swing, they asked people on the street in Oxford, Miss., (where Westy lives) some tough current events questions... and Westy made us proud.
Mark and Colleen Parks Jester shared that last spring's Davidson graduating class included four Fourth Cannon parents: Matthew Covington, Robby Hutchinson, Mark, and Ted Mumby. Mark and Colleen's daughter, Michelle '09, roomed with Sally Stephenson '09 (daughter of Jim and Emelia Stuart Stephenson '76) her senior year, and she is now on a Rotary scholarship to the University of Australia in Canberra, where she will earn an M.P.H. and study culture health and medicine (essentially, non-traditional health practices in other cultures, a topic she researched during her junior year abroad in China). As to Colleen and Mark, they're still in Rome, Ga., where Colleen teaches chemistry at Georgia Highlands College, and Mark teaches residents at Floyd Medical Center. They enjoy taking ballroom dancing lessons and playing bridge, and they spent their 30th anniversary in St. John last December.
The Grey House gang ate and drank their way through Charleston this past April. The group included Ken Chadwick, Steve Keener, Joe Logan, Sandy Martin '78, Pete Schenk, Jeff Sich, Chad Stephens, and Dave Trader. Dana and Virginia Beach hosted them for cocktails before dinner one night, and Chris Mangelsdorf won the "traveled farthest" award, coming from Tokyo!
It was great to hear from Lee Gillis, who says that because he transferred into our class and then spent first term of senior year out on an internship, many might not remember him... except perhaps from pouring beers at the Peregrine House or being in psychology classes together. Lee says that his summer of 1976 with the Davidson-Broughton program (and Dr. Workman) has had a lasting impact on his career in psychology and continued research on the use of outdoor adventure experiences as therapy. Lee is still in the psychology department at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, Ga., where he has been the department chair for several years. He has found that his experience with many groups of adolescents these past 30-plus years has helped in managing a bunch of academics! Lee's wife, Jude Hirsch, chairs the kinesiology department at Georgia College, and he notes that she had twice as much outdoor gear as he did when they married. They live and play on Lake Sinclair with daughter, Megan, who is a University of Georgia first-year student, studying voice performance.
On a personal note, I'm delighted to share the news that my family now includes two professional baseball players! One of my sister's four sons was drafted out of high school in 2008 by the Red Sox (so you Greenville Drive fans may have seen him, Pete Hissey, roaming the outfield this past season), and another graduated from Emory in May and was drafted by the Phillies. A third son is now hoping that the good fortune holds when his time comes.
Please join us in extending sympathy to Bud Jones, whose wife passed away in February and to Wayne Jonas, whose father died in April.
Finally, be sure to register on Davidson's new online community, Alenda Links: www.davidson.edu/alendalinks. It's a great way to find old friends and stay connected!
So that's the news from far and wide. All the best to you... and I love you, brothers and sisters.

Sadly, this column begins with news of the loss of our classmate and good friend, Scott Harbottle. As many of you already know, Scott died in May, and as of this writing, his wonderful brothers from the Grey House Gang were spearheading the fund-raising effort for a permanent memorial to Scott at Davidson. Scott was a genuinely kind and gentle soul, who never failed to brighten my day with his quick wit and smiling eyes. As many of you expressed to me in e-mails shortly after his death, Scott was considered a friend by nearly anyone who met him, and we are still feeling the shock of his passing. On a personal note, Scott represented so much of what I appreciate in my Davidson classmates-intelligence, humor, compassion, and the ability to make the distance and years that separate us now, vanish within a moment of being reunited. Scott-we will miss you dearly.
I recently discovered that Earnie Church and I have been separated by just 30 miles-and 30 years. Earnie has been a recruiter for two decades and is now the senior managing partner of Executive Search Consultants in Greensboro, N.C.-a company that he established in 1995. He and his wife, Lori, have been married for (coincidentally) 30 years. They have two grown children and were recently promoted to grandparent status with the arrival of a new granddaughter. Earnie is particularly proud that his children are doing so well in school. As he points out, "Davidson always used to stress that 85 percent of their graduates went on to graduate school. I'm part of the other 15 percent, but my son is a Ph.D. student and my daughter is working on her master's." Sounds like Earnie is doing just fine with his B.A. from Davidson.
We knew that Sue Colan White was tough enough to compete in triathlons and half-marathons. Now it turns out she is tough enough to face down a challenge from cancer as well. As she explains, "I have had my own battle with breast cancer and reconstructive surgeries, but am looking forward to cancer-free years in the future." For the past 25 years, Sue has worked as a nurse in Norfolk, Va. During the most recent five years, she has served as staff RN in a pediatric intensive care unit. She reminded me of food fights in eating houses and climbing to the top of Chambers building on a dare. (Will Terry '54-if you are reading this, we just made up that last part about climbing Chambers.)
I sent out an e-mail in the spring asking for information on classmates whom I clumsily referred to as "missing." More than one of my classmates wrote back to remind me that they were not missing. They were simply not on my e-mail list. My apologies to all. Included in that group is the eternally patient Randy Sherrill, a Methodist minister in Winston-Salem, who has been erroneously "listed" twice, and both times corrected my mistake with a kindness that perhaps only a member of the clergy could muster.
Also, Kathryn Bridges Miller wrote to point out that her "missing" husband of 29 years, Ward Miller, is doing just fine. Ward is vice president of operations for Red Bag Solutions, which processes medical waste in an efficient and environmentally conscious manner. In her words, "We are still living in Atlanta and Rankin (25) and Kenneth (22) are college graduates and are employed! Rankin is getting married Labor Day weekend '09 to her boyfriend since 10th grade. Our youngest child, Will, just completed his freshman year at Furman University and was a starter for the baseball team. We went to the SoCon series at Davidson, and it was a strange feeling to pull against the Wildcats."
Kudos are in order to a couple of classmates: Robert Cathey recently published his first book, God in Postliberal Perspective: Between Realism and Non-Realism, with Ashgate Publishing in their series Transcending Boundaries in Philosophy and Theology. Also, congratulations to Brian Cooper on his appointment as chief financial officer for Westell Technologies, a provider of broadband products and conferencing services in Aurora, Ill. Not surprisingly, however, Brian is even more excited about his son Paul's very successful high school tennis career.
To get the unabridged version of my correspondence with Sue, Kathryn, and many others not mentioned above, as well as some vintage photos of Scott and the Grey House Gang, go to our class blog listed in the heading of this column. Hope all is well with you. Thanks to everyone who has written back with kind words about this column and our class blog. This really is a labor of love for me. Take care.

I had a good conversation with Alex Bass, who's had a most interesting path to becoming a stalwart in the district attorney's office. The week after we graduated, he was in Reno for a summer job fixing slot machines (in the most honest sense of the word), and wound up staying for 10 years. He spent most of that time working on lighting crews for stage productions, and even traveled with the Tina Turner Private Dancer tour before returning to Lake Tahoe as a lighting designer.
In 1989 he started law school at Wake Forrest, and after graduation joined the DA's office in Rutherford-ton County, N.C. After an election changed personnel, he worked for the DA in Burlington for 12 years before being called back to be chief assistant DA in Rutherfordton. He's now been a prosecutor for nearly 18 years. Alex has been married to his wife, Misti, for eight years, and they have two sons, Brandon (6) and Nathan (2). I told him how proud I was to know that someone in our class was still fertile. Alex is bound and determined to host a toga party at the library during our upcoming cluster reunion, so be prepared.
Maria Patterson recently finished her tenure as chair of the Board of Visitors, granting her an ex-officio status on the Board of Trustees, adding yet another to our class domination of power at DC. She recently joined Diamond McCarthy as senior counsel for their New York office, located in the N.Y. Times Building. The Texas-based firm specializes in bankruptcy and litigation. Living an easy walk from Lincoln Center allows her to frequently enjoy ballet performances, when she needs a diversion from her scuba diving in the Caribbean. She recently acquired a lake cabin in New Hampshire, where she's learning the finer points of boating. Sadly, we send our condolences to Maria over the loss of her long-term significant other, Bob, who passed away in March.
I caught Mike Kennedy on the phone as he literally was packing his car for a move from Ann Arbor, Mich., to Brown University, where has been tapped to be the new director of the Watson Institute for International Studies and professor of sociology and international studies. After graduation, he got his Ph.D. in sociology at UNC, then taught one year at U. of South Carolina, before joining the sociology faculty at the U. of Michigan. He wouldn't volunteer it, but a press release about his new position noted that he received four teaching awards at Michigan, and has held several important positions there, including vice provost for international affairs. Mike married Shiva Balaghi, a historian of modern Middle East, in February 2008. His daughter, Emma, is a junior at NYU, majoring in psychology, and is interested in theater arts. His son, Lucas, is now a senior in high school, passionate about crew, and interested in pre-med studies once he chooses a college. Mike said that his golf game has withered over time, since his days on the team at Davidson, but he's been into karate for 10 years, and is now one step away from a black belt. He encourages everyone to get a Facebook page, noting that he's recently "friended" several classmates, whose names will be protected here in case they didn't want to "friend" me, or the horse I rode in on. At least that's the vibe I get when I mention Facebook to anyone the age of my kids.
I spoke with Tom Ruby, who is happy practicing law in Columbus, Ohio. He specializes in commercial transactions, business, and banking law, and work with several business clients led to another niche of helping clients buy and sell corporate aircraft. He notes that nowadays, there are more sellers than buyers, and the economy in general has created anxiety among many clients, whom he feels need better legal guidance than ever before. Tom joined the Vorys, Sater, Seymour, and Pease law firm straight after graduating from Harvard Law School. He and his wife, Mary Jo, have been happily married for 20 years. His prior two marathons are a thing of the past, and now he concentrates on 10K races and running for pleasure.
We want to extend our condolences to "Ace" Egerton Miller, whose father, Courtney David Egerton, passed away in June.

Sam Currin wrote, "Tina (Caldwell) '80 and I are delighted to send our fourth son, Luke, to Davidson this year, both because we love the school and because we will have the house to ourselves for the first time in 26 years. Our second son, Mark '08, graduated last year from Davidson and will be starting medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina this fall. Enjoyed a lovely evening with Tom '72 and Susan Ross recently and have great admiration for his vision and fit as the new president."
