Class of 2019

Sep, 2019

Nancy Harris writes: “My husband, Brad Parsons ’76, and I enjoyed seeing our youngest son Colby Parsons ’19 graduate. He joins his older brothers, Spencer Parsons ’13 and Cameron Parsons ’14. With all the boys living in different cities in the coming years, we can now happily look forward to seeing them at the many Brown reunions ahead.”

Russell Pierce claims to be the only member of the Class of 1953 to march in the 251st Commencement procession. “I was especially proud that our family now has three generations of Brown graduates, including my wife Anne Guerry Pierce ’58, our daughter Betsy Pierce Dallapé ’86, and son Russell B. Pierce Jr. ’87 and his wife Lisa Strauss Pierce ’87, and their son Ethan G. Pierce ’19. Two other grandsons, Charles Dallapé ’22 and James Dallapé ’23, round out our family list. I ponder whether our family will end up with more Brown degrees than the original Brown family!”
