Lew Kaplan writes, “My daughter, Merrill, just received her Ph.D. in Scandinavian languages and literature from the University of California at Berkeley. An Old Norse and folklore scholar, Merrill will become an assistant professor, with a joint appointment in Germanic languages and English, at Ohio State in the fall. Her mother, the late Nancy Gelberg Kaplan ’67, would have been equally proud. My new wife of two years, Lesley Oelsner, and I now happily spend as much time as possible in upstate New York and are looking forward to the 40th reunion.”

David Moran writes, “I entered with the Class of ’69 but transferred to Brandeis University after two years. I’ve been an editor and writer living outside Boston ever since. I’m currently at BBN Technologies, and I’m married with two college-age children. I’m still best of friends with Alan Finder, Charles Cummings, and Martha Morenstein, and I have occasional contact with Glenn Yaffee ’70 and Karen Surman Paley, as well as Laurie Modell Orlov ’73, Janet Maslin ’70, Robert Kirschbaum ’70, and Stan ’71 and Harriet Kasloff Berman. Reconnecting with two of the more important influences on my intellectual life, I recently have been corresponding with former English professor Husain Haddawy, who retired to the Sea of Thailand, and I’ve begun rereading Hayden White’s Emergence of Liberal Humanism.” Our apologies to David, whose essay “Identity, Youths, and Crises,” which was published in the book Without Reserve, was incorrectly credited to David Moran ’51 in the spring issue.
