from Snowy Lake Tahoe (20 feet up to Christmas). Plans are moving into high
gear for our 40th reunion under the capable leadership of
Wayne Hobin. Wayne writes that
plans are going smoothly for the
reunion on 10/20 - 10/24 (Homecoming Weekend). He will be looking for
"Volunteers" to call fellow frat and team members, social and club
affiliates, etc. from our class to try to get as many attendees as possible.

celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their championship season that
included as 26-game winning streak and Dartmouth’s only appearance in the
NCAA College World Series. The occasion was a Dartmouth Baseball Alumni

passed along an article in the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly that summarized
an impressive undertaking by Andrew Urban. Andy and another lawyer
from Mintz, Levin, Cohn et al founded an organization (now) called Boston
Lawyers group in 1986 to attract recently graduated lawyers of color to stay
in the Boston area. At that time Boston wasn’t perceived as an ideal place
for a lawyer of color to start their career. The group grown into a
consortium of more than 45 members, including prominent law firms, corporate
legal departments and government agencies in Boston that is still
successfully recruiting lawyers and Andy is still on the Executive
Committee. Congratulations for taking the initiative and still following
through 24 years later.
Keep the news coming. Bob
