Richard passed along these sage words of wisdom: "Dear Mr. Dunn, as a neurological surgeon after Princeton, medical school, a master's degree during a six-year residency, I quickly learned the necessity of hard, persistent work. ese two characteristics allowed me to pursue a 32-year career in patient care, teaching and research. I sincerely hope these remarks are not self-serving but address your question and they began at the Latin School with the guidance of its faculty. My congratulations on your guidance of the school and continue your outstanding work from a 93-year-old alumnus and loyal supporter." June Edelstone Lowell, also passed along 75th reunion advice for the current students: "is is a picture of my husband (age 95) and me taken yesterday at a wedding in the ex-hacienda of Saint Inez in Cautla. e Latin School of today is completely different, as is the world, from the one I knew. Our class was a strange one, not positive, but our education was excellent and has served me well these many years. My advice to the future generations is never waste good moments with bad thoughts! Always try to think positive and life will be easier and more productive and interesting. All our best wishes!" 1944 Mrs. Grace Dodge Kirk Mrs. Camille McDonald Weiss Camille McDonald Weiss, Grace Dodge Kirk, and Ginny Aldrich McTier '50 gathered at Lake Forest Place on June 9, 2018, for lunch with their spouses.
