1952's 55th Reunion, May 31-June 3, 2007

 Our 55th Reunion was a wonderful experience of fellowship and remembering.  We all owe great thanks to Bill and Mary Murdoch, to the members of their Reunion Committee, to all the others in the Class who helped, to the undergraduate crew who served us loyally and cheerfully, and, of course, to the 150 or so Classmates and several hundred family members and friends whose participation made it such a memorable occasion.
