This Yale ’60 website is a primary communication vehicle for Classmates to stay current with what’s going on with both the class and Yale as a whole. The content is from us, about us and directed to us.

Information for this site has and will in the future come from you! Submissions can be your activities, articles, awards, family gatherings – anything that you think would be of interest to others. And it doesn’t have to be the written word – photos are welcomed and encouraged. There is also important information such as obituaries (let’s face it, they’re getting more and more frequent and are important remembrances of our colleagues) and upcoming Class events such as mini-reunions and class tents at football games.

All submissions should be directed to John Wilkinson, our Class Notes Correspondent, at john.wilkinson@yale.edu and all those that are reasonable will be posted immediately.
