P&S Journal: Winter 1998, Vol.18, No.1
ALUMNI ASSOCIATION ACTIVITIES
Philadelphia area alumni gathered last March for brunch in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American College of Physicians. Alumni director Katherine Couchells introduced the dynamic father-and-son duo of Regional Committee chairman Oscar'65 and Evan'99 Garfein, the latter still in the thick of his studies, each offering their generational perspective on medicine and P&S. Both appeared in almost identical blue suits, white shirts, and red ties --"a perfect cloning!" joked the proud dad.
On May 25, Dr. and Mrs. K.J. Lee'65 hosted a luncheon for more than 50 alumni, family, and friends at their elegant waterfront home in Guilford, Conn. Dr. Lee expressed his delight at bringing together his fellow Connecticut alumni and invited his classmate, Oscar Garfein'65, to introduce Dean Herbert Pardes, who filled everyone in on the momentous changes, advances, and expansions at the Health Sciences campus.
Vacationing and resident downeasters had a double opportunity to hook up. Former Regional Representatives Committee Co-chairman Richard N. Pierson Jr.'55 was the guest speaker at a luncheon on Aug. 2 at the Lobster House in South Harpswell. On Aug. 17 and 18, the northern contingent converged on the former Roosevelt estate on Campo Bello Island and at associate dean and director of development and alumni relations Dr. Anke Nolting's nearby home in Lubec for a two-day long P&S powwow with the chief, Dean Herbert Pardes. One particularly stirring moment occurred when Oscar Garfein'65 and David Chiu'73 met up unexpectedly and swapped memories with their beloved old professor, Malcolm Carpenter, who summers nearby.
On Oct. 14, John N. Schullinger'55 hosted a joint reception for the alumni association and the John Jones Society of the Department of Surgery at the American College of Surgeons meeting in Chicago.
Washington, D.C., area alumni came together Nov. 3 for a cocktail reception hosted by Dean Herbert Pardes in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Association of American Medical Colleges.
