We are reaching out to share that 2019 will mark Princeton Football’s 150th season, which is also the 150th season of college football. To commemorate this truly historic year, Princeton will face Dartmouth at iconic Yankee Stadium on November 9, 2019 (3:30 PM), just days after the 150th anniversary of the inaugural game between Princeton and Rutgers.


Tickets for this special game are now available for purchase! We hope you will take advantage of the allure of Yankee Stadium and Princeton’s impressive undefeated 2018 Ivy League championship season to engage your classmates and consider planning a class mini-reunion, organizing a tailgate, or hosting a post-game reception.

BE SURE TO schedule Alumni Day 23 Feb 2019.


Check the President's Page (2nd down on the left) for some really good news.


Our heartfelt thanks to Jim Wallace for guiding us through the Treasury maze.



At the ReunionFriday dinner at the Nassau Club were Abbotts,

Alexander H’50, Anderson H’50, Campbell, Cronheim,

Dipple, Duncan, Erdman, Haynes, McAlpin, Rivinus,

Robinson, Rose, Schluter & Young. The food and company

were great, and David McAlpin gave a touching memorial

to classmates who had died since our 67th.


Anthony Fittizzi, Chairman of the Committee on Reunions,

presented the Society of the Claw award for service to the class

in Reunions and the P-rade to Schluter and McAlpin.


Rain and lightening were threatening for the P-rade, but we had

our individual piper, who played lots of “Scotland the Brave”

and “The Artillery Song”. Campbell, Haynes, Rose, and Schluter

were there.  This year, the Old Guard led the P-Rade… which turned

out to be a good thing for us.


We went through the arch as normal.  Then, as we went around

the turn to go in back of the reviewing stand, there was a lightening

warning.  Everyone had to get into shelter.  Bummer!  Finally,

after the rains came and the lightening threat continued,

the P-rade was officially canceled.  It made no big difference

to 1950, since we had finished our P-rade, but it was a real

shame for the younger classes with massive bands and

decorations, etc.


There was another great dinner on Saturday, hosted by

Judy Schiede in honor of the Old Guard.

It rained on Alumni Day. Surprise. Actually, it Princeton-ed.

In attandance were Jean Fox, Bill Haynes and Charlie Rose. The awards speeches by Daniel Mendelsohn *94 and Charles Gibson '65 were among the best ever. Worth the price.



Your hardworking executive committee had a meeting on 5 Feb 2018.

We did some long range financial planning. At our age "long range" has a limited meaning.

David observed that we do not need a fancy directory for our 70th.  Al volunteered to format it.   Dottie can provide and Excel sheet with all sorts of class info.

















NOTES. We do not list email addresses on this web site, since they are not password protected.   You can get addresses for classmates who have listed them with Alumni Records by clicking on Tigernet.
