Join us on May 23-26, 2024 for our 65th Reunion of all Reunions!

A weekend to share old and new times, visit old haunts and new campus scenes, with special Class of 1959 program events not to be missed including "Fireside chats” with Prof. Guido Calabresi and Anne Applebaum on Friday afternoon, followed by the class memorial service, and a Dick Maltby/David Shire Revue on Saturday afternoon. Yale Dining Service will provide delicious meal offerings throughout the weekend. Widows are invited to be our special guests and to share in our class memorial following the “Fireside Chats” on Friday afternoon .
