Class of 1973 50th Reunion - Class of 1973 50th Reunion

June 1 - 4, 2023


Dear Classmates – 

“Time and change shall not avail, to break the friendships formed at Yale . . .” Those words from “Bright College Years” take on a special resonance this year as in two months, exactly 50 years after our Yale commencement on June 4, 1973, we will be gathering again. 

How time flies! But as Bob Dylan sang to us back in the day, “May you stay forever young.” In that spirit, we are looking forward to seeing all of you under the Tent on the Old Campus, June 1-4, 2023 to celebrate this milestone in our lives with a festive weekend of reconnecting and reflecting—and sharing our thoughts on the past, the present, and what lies ahead.  

There will be cocktails, class dinners, music, and dancing to the rockin’ sounds of the Bales-Gitlin band. There will be thought-provoking class panels and discussions, university-wide events, cool swag, and plenty of time to relax, to explore the campus, and to reconnect with old friends—and to make new ones. 

If you should need financial assistance to attend, please contact Janet Cappiello at or 203-432-7871. Please be assured that all such arrangements will remain confidential. In addition, surviving partners of our classmates are welcome to attend and their fees and campus housing fees will be waived.  

We can’t wait to see all of you! 

Reunion Co-Chairs: Wigs Frank, Dan Larson, Libby Burnett Reinhardt 

Class Officers: Andrea DaRif (Secretary), Al Shamash (Treasurer)
