Letters to the editor


Outstanding issue

I have just had an opportunity to read the 2004 winter edition of the Cornell Report. I have always enjoyed receiving and reading the Report in the past. This most recent issue is unusually outstanding. My compliments to you and the staff on an outstanding job. It was both very informative and interesting.

Remembering Cornell

The Cornell Report is an outstanding alumni publication that provides a wide variety of topics that appeal to college graduates. Of course, Charles Milhauser’s contributions are priceless pieces of the rich history of the college.  I am ever so glad that I am once again on the mailing list. My honorary alumni membership awarded upon my departure has always been a substantial part of my personal and professional history and my 32 years as a dean of students have left me with a treasure trove of student friends and happy memories. I have often conjectured that my best professional years (1957-1969) were those 12 years that Dorothy and I spent at the college. I retired in 1989 from Millsaps College to Anacortes, Wash., where we built our retirement home on a lake on Fidalgo Island.

Stuart Good,

Thank you, alumni

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can’t thank you enough for all the good wishes I received by phone, letters, and e-mails since
I announced my retirement as alumni programs coordinator. I know I have had the best job on campus, because I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful alumni during my 28 years in the Alumni Office. I am going to miss all of you, but I do look forward to my retirement (and marriage). I will still be attending activities on campus, so I will see you on the Hilltop. Thank you again for all the kindness extended to me. My door is always open.

Bev Moser Perlenfein,

Annual Report correction
