Letters from alumni about Princeton
I attended in a Princeton event last night. First time in 43 years. A small traveling show of the Triangle Club visited Los Angeles, where I live now.
The LA alumni association president called to ask if we'd put up two of the performers for the night, and we did. The Triangle function was delightful; I rekindled friendships with two former 61 classmates, both of whom looked vaguely familiar, with names I remembered, and they seemed to remember me, too. It was wonderful meeting others, too, from other classes, people who are in my opinion making their lives happen.
So, I think I may get more involved in Princeton affairs here in LA. Why'd I stay away for so long? Looking back, I think my years at Princeton were filled with youthful excesses and lack of focus..... not the best time in my life. But perhaps over time I've made my own successes... no reason to hide any longer, nor was there ever any such reason.
