GS Class of 1978
Alan Mills writes: “Seeking to reconnect with old friends as we all sought to cope with the coronavirus, a group of friends from freshman year at Brown (West Quad, Class of 1978) decided to hold a Zoom reunion (now a biweekly get together). It has been great to remember why we became such close friends at Brown. Raymond Lane organized the Zoom and Abby Cohen, Jane and Chuck MacFarland, Amy and David Mantel, Villu Maricq, Elliot Steger, Eileen O’Hayer Towne, Karen Zaccor and I all participated.”
Ann Matteodo Dupre writes: “Having the good fortune to have three brothers precede me at Brown (Sam Matteodo ’51; Maurice Matteodo ’53; and Eugene Matteodo ’56, ’78 PhD)—their mantra was that it was appropriate for me to graduate in 1961 because it could be read upside down, proving I did not know if I was coming or going. It always raised my love and awareness to think of that distinction.”
H. Scott Hestevold ’78 PhD retired from the Univ. of Alabama on June 1 after 40 years on the philosophy faculty, including eight years as chair. He has published essays on philosophical problems involving objects, time, and identity and on problems in moral psychology involving mercy and pity. He is currently writing about the nature of space.
