What Was your Hometown While You Were At Northfield Or Mt Hermon?

Brimfield, MA

Number of years you attended Northfield or Mount Hermon?

2 years

Dorms in which you lived:

Crossley (North) and Overton

Most memorable N/MH experience/s: could be "feasting" on Saturday nights after lights out and/or sneaking out of the dorm or something like the thunder and lightning at Christmas Vespers or a significant athletic triumph. What do you remember that brings a big smile to your face?:

Singing in the choir, glee club and "A Capella" choir was a joy and something I still miss. Saturday night dates and dances were always something to look forward to. Post graduation visits with the Donovans. Giving Nat King Cole and his family directions to Natalie's dorm when they first arrived at Northfield. Parties that Rudy Weber used to give in his apartment on the fourth floor of N. Crossley. This was after graduation, but I was visiting campus and watching the Deerfield game the day Silliman burned to the ground. Saw the whole thing.

Any secrets or stories you can finally divulge?

I'm sworn to secrecy, though I'll never forget the night my roommate Doug Ricard and I woke up to find out that dozens of alarm clocks had been stashed in our room and set to go off at different intervals. Charlie Edwards was my roommate senior year. Charlie was the hall monitor on the third floor of Overton. There was never a dull moment sharing a room with Charlie. The JFK assassination was particularly memorable because Charlie was from Hyannis and knew the Kennedy family.

What do you remember about your dummy / work jobs... that you want to share?

Working for Mr. Skib in West Hall kitchen junior year and working in Dean Burdick's Office senior year (with Frank Shorter).

Which faculty / staff members and coaches do you remember with respect and affection and why?

Tom Donovan and Rudy Weber were the best teachers I had because they kept my attention and taught me a lot. Mr. Raymond was a wonderful choir leader and conductor.
