Recovering Our Reunions

 

The usual suspects at their 50th.

Didn’t know they were lost? We have next to nothing on our website for our 5th, 10th, 15th and 20th reunions, other than some remembrances in “Reunions – An Irregular History” by Class President David Saul. We need pictures and info for the 5th through 25th.  If you have some, please send them to Class Historian Bob Popadic rpad7@tiac.net (978-468-5855).

Since shortly after our 50th we have had pictures up on our website for our 25th, 30th, 35th, 40th and 50th reunions.  For the 25th all we have is a class portrait on the Kresge steps taken with one of those old cameras that swept the crowd, enabling someone to appear on both the left and right ends of the picture – just run fast and keep your head down.

Just recently Bob put up “Facts About” for the 25th to 50th reunions.  These pages can be reached from the Photos & Articles page, either from the left hand stub, or within the page by going to Memory Lane and then selecting a specific reunion, where there are links to both the Photos and Facts About pages.

The Facts About pages have info about the reunion such as: attendance, class events schedule, POPs Program info, Reunion Committee Members, Gift Committee Members, class gift, class scholar, and class officers.  If you see something wrong or have something to add (we still have holes) please let Bob know.

Remember to check the right stub on the home page under “What’s New On the Website” for notice of recent posts.


The 55th Is Coming – Class Project Announced

Jaume Plensa’s Alchemist was the starting point for an Alumni Leadership Conference (ALC) campus art tour. You may have missed it at the 50th reunion, I did. It was installed on Mass Ave near the Stratton Student Center in 2011. The piece is in stainless steel with white enamel paint and was commissioned by an anonymous alumnus on the occasion of the Institute’s 150th anniversary.  Rather than the usual letters our piece has numbers and symbols.

Since our 50th there have been some changes on campus.  Among them was the demolition of Bexley Hall (W13) in 2015. At least for now, the Bexley site has been replaced by a park.

Remember in our day if you got off at the Kendall Square T stop to find MIT you need a sign.  Coming development will place the admissions office and MIT museum right where you get off the T.

These were some of the changes noted by those of us who attended the 2016 ALC.  The attendees initiated a class Project – Where Have You Been and Going, Techie? - to capture remembrances, current experiences and outlooks for the future; and publish them on our website in the “Then, Now and Beyond” section and if we get enough contributions to produce a book.  Unlike Bios, done for the 50th, which focused on us individually, the Project focuses on topics and their evolution over 50 plus years, into which we weave our personal experience.

MIT Scholarship and UROP Brunch News 

Representing our Class of 1964, David Saul attended MIT’s Scholarship and UROP brunch on April 12th.  At the event David got to meet and interact with one of our Class’s scholarship recipients, Alyssa Smith ’17.  Alyssa is from Rhode Island and pursuing a double major in computer science and media studies.  She described a UROP project she just completed at the Media Lab where she analyzed Twitter data to detect media bias.  This summer Alyssa will be working at Harvard’s prestigious Berkman Center.  We should all feel very proud to have such an accomplished young woman being supported by our class.  The associated photo is of David Saul, his wife, Susan, and Alyssa Smith.

MIT Class of 1964 50th Reunion Retrospective

Dear Classmates:

Our 50th reunion is now history and what a grand and glorious event it was!  Or to quote one of my two-year-old granddaughter Miranda’s favorite words – “Wow.”  As outgoing Reunion Chair and incoming Class President I thought I would recollect a few of those memories for those who were not able to join us in person but were included in our celebration.  1964 produced one of the largest reunions in the recent past with 214 classmates and 207 guests attending at least one event during the weekend for a total of 421 people.

Thursday
The rainy weather did not bode well as we began our reunion but it was gone by Thursday evening when we attended the 117th Tech Night at Pops.  If my arithmetic is correct, the Boston Pops had only been in existence twelve years when the first MIT night was held.  Before Pops we gathered at our base hotel, the Marriott in Cambridge, for a buffet supper.  It and all of the other meals and décor were coordinated by Suzanne Strauss, wife of our Treasurer, Bruce Strauss.  We cannot thank Suzanne enough for the fantastic job she did.  And Bruce kept everything on budget.  Pops itself was great fun, as usual, with 1964 having the best seats in the house.  Highlights included a visit from Tim the MIT beaver mascot and singing “Happy Birthday” for his 100th.  The last program item was a Beatles sing-along and 1964 was an enthusiastic participant.

Friday
After breakfast our class assembled on the steps of Walker Memorial for our formal class portrait.  Watch for a future link to view the photo.  We then assembled in more or less good order and waited to march into Commencement in Killian (aka Great) Court.  We were preceded by the faculty in all of their academic regalia.  As we marched behind our class banner to prime seating we were applauded by all the assembled guests.  It was an exhilarating moment and I have to say we looked pretty good.  The MIT web site has video up and our entrance starts about four minutes into it.  Our spouses and guests were whisked away for a champagne toast and a viewing location with narration.  At Commencement, President Reif’s charge to the graduates was both humorous and inspiring.  He spoke about the importance of MIT in solving global problems and the role that its graduates play in improving life for everyone on the planet.  His reference to MIT as “a gift to the world” embodied its mission.

We were reunited with our guests for lunch in the Student Center.  Part of lunch was set aside for our class business meeting.  We thanked outgoing President Bob Popadic, Vice President Emma Root and Webmaster Bob Gray.  We welcomed new Vice Presidents Jim Monk and John Meriwether, joining Bill Young and Andrew Silver.  Bruce Strauss continues as Treasurer and Bill Ribich as Secretary.  Subsequent to the meeting Bob Howie and Maury Shulman agreed to become co-Webmasters.  We also inducted Robert Dimmick from the Alumni Association as an honorary class member for the yeoman work that he has done for our class over the past 2+ years of planning and execution.  Robert was everywhere during the weekend making sure all of the arrangements went flawlessly.  We can’t thank him enough.

The rest of Friday was filled with tours, department open houses and living group visits.  I am told that Course 16 had ice cream but it was all gone by the time I got there.  Late afternoon we had a class speaker program, coordinated by classmate John Meriwether.  John had a diverse set of faculty and class speakers, including himself, in a thought-provoking program.  John had a coup in having Susan Solomon, Ellen Swallow Richards Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry & Climate Science, as one of the speakers.  Professor Solomon will be heading up MIT’s new multi-disciplinary initiative on the environment just announced last month.

Friday night’s dinner was a casual affair in the atrium of the new Brain and Cognitive Sciences building.  It gave people a chance to relax and catch up with old friends.  Several of the living groups scheduled their own smaller dinners to do the same thing.

Saturday
Technology Day took up the morning with the theme of “The Future of Planet Earth.”  Faculty speakers talked about the challenges we and future generations face with energy, food, water and population.  President Reif echoed the theme from his commencement talk about how MIT is unique in its ability to solve those problems.

Our class got to march again, this time led by Tim the beaver into the Alumni Association lunch and to the acclaim of all the other classes.  This luncheon was the opportunity for our class to present its reunion gift to MIT.  Jim Monk, who, with his gift committee, has done a terrific job, spoke eloquently on our behalf.  We came very close to our financial goal but have until the end of June to get there.  By the end of the day we did achieve our participation goal of 64.64%!  There is still time to contribute, if you have not already done so.

The day after our reunion I emailed President Reif to thank him for everything MIT had done to make our 50th a success and for his personal involvement.  I want to share with you his response:

Dear David,
 Thank you so much for sharing how pleased you and your classmates were with the reunion this year. We are truly fortunate to have such loyal alumni and such well experienced staff to work with them.

 Please share with the whole class my sincere congratulations and deep gratitude on reaching the terrific participation goal of 64.64% this past weekend. It is, indeed, impressive!
 
Best wishes,

L. Rafael Reif
President
Massachusetts Institute of Technology


In the afternoon we held a memorial service for classmates who are no longer with us, led by classmate Russ Norris and Institute Chaplain Bob Randolph.  After reading the names of departed classmates we had remembrances from their friends.  It was moving and appropriate.

Everyone dressed up for a reception at the President’s House followed by a gala dinner and dancing at the Marriott hotel.  President Reif and his charming wife personally greeted everyone in the receiving line and posed for pictures.  Our luck with the weather continued as we were able to enjoy drinks and canapés in the garden.  A short walk brought us back to the hotel for another delicious meal.  It did not take long after dinner for people to get up and start dancing to music from our time.

Sunday
The day began with the Reunion Row.  I have to admit that I slept in but I was told that we won our first heat.  Our farewell brunch was held in the new Media Lab building with a spectacular view of the Charles River and the Boston skyline.  People were drawn to the outdoor balcony to take in the view and enjoy the sunshine.  Goodbyes were long and heartfelt with many people expressing the wish to not let five years go by before seeing each other again.

I have tried to thank everyone who worked so hard on our reunion but I am sure that, in my haste, I have left someone out.  Mostly, I wanted to thank everyone who was able to join us either in person or in spirit to make this 1964’s best reunion ever.

The Annual Scholarship and UROP Brunch was held April 6, 2014.  The event brought together scholarship recipients and sponsors, such as the Class of 1964 - Student Aid Fund.  Class President Bob Popadic and his wife Karen represented the class and enjoyed brunch with Alyssa H. Smith 2017, who along with Andrew T. Nguyen 2014 are our current class scholars.  The program, featured a panel of students discussing their experience at MIT and the impact of the scholarships they received.

MIT Class of 1964 Women in Science

The March 14, 2014 issue of Science mentions the MIT women of the class of 1964 and their pivotal role in the education of women engineers. The article includes a photo of Harriet Fell, '64, with the caption 

On the leading edge of a wave. The 25 women who entered MIT’s class of 1964 matched the graduation rate of their 874 male classmates.

The Science article is a review of a recently published book: Girls Coming to Tech! A History of American Engineering Education for Women [MIT Press, January 2014]. The photo caption only hints at the underlying story. The Class of 1964 website article on the Association of Women Students   provides more details of the changing attitudes of the MIT faculty and administration during the late 1950s and early 1960s and why the class of 1964 was unique.

Old Techie’s Guide to the Campus 


Are you a time traveller?  Not been back to the campus since graduation? Since the 25th Reunion? Since last year?  Don’t remember what the campus was like in 1964? Coming to the 55th Reunion?  Then to go back and forth in time you need the “Old Techie’s Guide to the Campus”.  Not sure if old applies to Techies or Campus or both – read on.


1964 - A Memorable Year
By David N. Saul ’64, Class of 1964 Reunion Chair

Is the media obsessed with 1964 or am I just sensitized to any mention of that year as a result of my work on behalf of our fiftieth reunion?  I don’t think it is just me.  Last week on public television there was a two-hour documentary devoted solely to historical events that took place in 1964.  Several weeks ago Time magazine had an opinion piece on 1964 that singled it out as unique and unusual.  A search on Amazon turns up at least half a dozen books on 1964 alone and expands when the early 1960s are included.  Those years that we were at MIT appear in the lens of history as transformational.  Elsewhere on our class web site Leon Kaatz has done an excellent job of enumerating some of the significant world and MIT events.

Whatever opinions the media puts forth there is no question that the world was changing in significant ways while we were at MIT.  However, to me, reunions are personal not historical.  Certainly we were all impacted by external events, be they political, cultural or financial.  But reunions are much more about how we experienced those events individually and collectively.  In particular our fiftieth reunion is such a major milestone that it gives us time to reflect and reminisce as many of us are moving to new stages in our lives.  I hope all of your changes are for the good and you joined us at our 50th reunion at MIT June 5-8, 2014.  We organized a great weekend of activities that let us share experiences with our classmates as well as catch up with what has happened at MIT since our time. MORE.

Junior Year - On the Way to Leaving

We’ve survived two years, and may be beginning to understand and respect MIT, but not necessarily love it.  If we did that how could we say “Tech is Hell”. 


The centennial celebration is over and The Second Century Fund is busy spending on buildings.  McCormick is coming out of the ground to be ready in the fall of 1963 for many more woman (coeds to our generation) in the freshman class. The Magnet Lab is getting its cooling water from the mighty Charles, and probably a lot more than just water. Married Students Housing is up on the western fringes of campus – what was then the frontier - now while not quite central, far from frontier.  Then there was the Cyclotron (with Harvard, you know that boys school up the river that was affiliated with Radcliffe), and the Earth Sciences Building whose incessant pile driver set the pace for East Campus finals studying.  MORE

Your Gift Committee is Up and Racing

Twenty members of the Class of 1964 have now banded together as the 50th Reunion Gift Committee.  They have been trained and will begin reaching out to every member of our class beginning in early November.  Expect them to give you a call – why, if you have already given this year, they may call just to say “Thanks”.

At a meeting of the Reunion Committee during the Alumni Leadership Conference in September, our 50th Reunion gift goals were announced.  We hope to raise at least $28.64 million with a participation rate of our class members of 64.64%.  Who says goals can’t be fun?

You can give to MIT in a large number of ways:  cash, check, credit card, gifts of homes, stocks, companies – MIT will take almost anything of value and give you, and our class, credit.  You can also pledge your gift over the next five years and it will still count in our total.  Also consider giving some funds to a Unitrust, which will pay you (and then your spouse or another person) an annual payment of 5% of the value of your trust every year.  It’s a better way to make money than many others.  Reunion Giving Information

The Red Coats Are Coming!


The red jacket has long been a symbol of achievement and longevity for MIT alumni, since alumni begin wearing it on the 50th anniversary of their graduation. We have the MIT Class of 1916 to thank for this tradition, which its officers voted to adopt at their 50th reunion in 1966. They made such an impression marching into Commencement that subsequent classes adopted it as well. For a school with comparatively few alumni traditions, the red jacket has become an honored one.

You’ll notice those red and gray striped neckties the men are wearing in the photo at top right. Known as the “freshman tie,” they were once required for daily wear in the freshman year. From the 1931 “Freshman Rules,” we note: “All Freshmen should wear regulation ties, four-in-hand, with cardinal and gray stripes. These should be worn when on the Institute grounds from the day classes begin until the beginning of Christmas Vacations . . . Formerly, when the end of the Freshmen rules regime at Technology came early in the spring, there was a big rally of the Freshman Class, a tree was planted to commemorate the occasion, and the ties were consigned to the flames of a large bonfire, while the men circled about in a huge snake dance.” When Class of 1964 volunteers met during the Alumni Leadership Conference on September 27, they voted unanimously that there was “no such thing as a Class of 1964 freshman tie,” so on the order form for your red jacket, the same tie is referred to as “MIT tie. 

The need for corresponding regalia for alumnae has been met by the Association of MIT Alumnae (AMITA), who in 2008 began presenting silver gray silk scarves embroidered in cardinal red to 50th reunion alumnae at a private gathering on the first day of Tech Reunions.

Classes buck this tradition at their peril, as the officers of the Class of 1923 discovered to their surprise at their own 50th reunion. The officers, to be different, voted on white jackets, and their classmates dutifully went along. At their luncheon following Commencement, however, when the time came to elect officers for the next term, the slate of existing officers was soundly voted down!

At your 50th reunion next year, your red jacket will see daily wear. The events where red jackets are usually worn begin on Thursday with Tech Night at Pops, and continue on Friday for the really big event for ’64 – marching in the Commencement Procession and the class portrait. Saturday, Technology Day, red jackets are worn again for the Luncheon – the class and their guests will march in to the acclaim of all – and for the Presidents Reception and gala dinner that night.

Once you reach the 50th, the red jacket becomes your MIT uniform for life, and you may wear it to any and all MIT functions with pride. I have long encouraged alumni to do so, if for no other reason than to amortize the cost!

How to get your red jacket? The order form is available as a pdf and included in the November all class mailing.

From Robert Dimmick, Our go to person for our 50th Reunion

 

Courses - Why Tech Is Hell!




The Course Groups section of the class web pages has grown more slowly than the pages for the other activity groups such as living groups and sports. This may reflect our priorities and sense of identity at the time. The courses have changed through the years as some have merged with others or simply disappeared and new ones have been spawned as new fields have appeared. Mike Drooker points out that his department --- Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (Course XIII), doesn't exist any more, having been folded back into Course 2 from whence it sprang in 1893. Our web pages are organized according to the course structure during 1960-64. You can find the list HERE and then follow the links to a specific course. MORE

Activities – Something to Do When Not
Trying to Graduate



USS Wasp in transit to Bermuda Christmas 1963. 

“Mom and Dad won’t be home for Christmas – Going on a government all expense paid trip to Bermuda – Send money.  Off we went.  ‘Don’t have any 2
nd class insignia – use these 1st class ones’ – OK. Will there be girls in Bermuda? Of course. Does it make any difference that there is a big storm brewing with waves big enough to bash in the bridge of our destroyer escorts? – No.  What about the airline strike – how will girls get to Bermuda? – Not to worry.  Seems the only folks there were locals, those who got there before the storm and strike, and a couple of thousand folks from the Wasp and its escorts. Met a very nice gal at a hotel.  Parents asked me to join them for dinner. Declined – Dummy!” – a quote from one of the 5 midshipmen pictured above.

You won’t read the rest of that true story on our activities pages because we don’t have a Military Science page or pages for Army, Navy or Air Force ROTC. Being in ROTC was Cool when we entered as freshman and in disrepute by the time we finished grad school – times change.  If your activity isn’t listed on the Activity Groups page or is listed and doesn’t have an editor – do your part to save your group’s memories (even embellished by time) by contacting Bob^2, Bob Gray rmgray@stanford.edu or Bob Popadic
Popadicr@aol.com, and volunteering.

“I was probably the worst skier on the MIT Ski Team in the 1961 to 1964 period.  I joined only because my fraternity, SAE, required every member of its incoming pledge class to join an athletic team.  I had learned to ski in Utah starting at age 14 and thought I was pretty good, but I wasn't prepared for three things:  first, that New England skiing is often ice while Utah skiing is usually powder or slush; second, that the Team would include people from Nordic countries who had grown up on skis; and third, that I had a fear of skiing at 60 mph as required to compete in downhill.”

Want to read more?  You are in luck!  Warren Wiscombe shares his team memories on the Skiing page he edits. As do Janet (Stober) Van Blerkom for Orchestra, Bob Gray for Sailing, Bernie Yaged for Weightlifting, Jack Moter for Basketball and Tennis, a collection of folks for VooDoo, and Bob Popadic for Technique. The Activity Groups page lists many activities, but not all religious organizations, sports clubs, social clubs, musical clubs and professional societies.  Want to provide coverage for your group – let Bob^2 know.

Living Groups - Our Home While Trying

McCormick Hall opened in 1963 as a woman’s dorm.  Fraternity holiday party. Burton dinning hall under construction.

Technique 1965 reported an Institute study that found dorms wanting and raised the question of “who could be inspired while living in Burton”. 
Ah home is where the heart is – where the parties are - where the intramural teams are – where dorm mates and brothers are – and where spirit abounds.  Or maybe it’s we didn’t know any better – If Tech is Hell – why shouldn’t it apply to dorms as well. As Julius Stratton once said ”graduates have respect but not love for MIT”. More

Class of 1964 Reunions -
An Irregular History


I hope that you have not been put off by the title of this article and stopped reading it already.  If not, let me tell you the two goals I am attempting to achieve in writing it.  One is to capture some reminiscences of past reunions before they fade from my memory.  The second is to incent you all to attend our fiftieth reunion next June 5 - 8, 2014.  In particular I want to entice those of you who have never been to a reunion to join your classmates in celebrating this significant milestone. 

My disclaimer is that this is a personal history and any opinions or altered memories are purely mine alone.  One position our class has never had, but should have, in my opinion, is that of class historian.  Maybe this essay will encourage one of our classmates to take on the job and fill in many of the holes I have left open.

You well may ask what qualifies me to write about our past reunions.  The simple answer is just being the man on the spot.  I don’t remember who asked me to serve on the fifth reunion committee, our first.  I have been a member of every reunion committee ever since, serving as chairperson for more than half.  Why would I continue to do this?  It can’t just be due to my living continuously in the Boston area.  The real answer is friendship and collegiality.  Reunions have given me the chance to see old friends and to meet new ones.  That is why I do it. MORE.
