Milne School Announces Reunion

Contact: Catherine Herman (518) 437-4980

ALBANY, N.Y. (April 4, 2005) -- Forty-five years of Milne School graduates will join for a reunion dinner on Saturday, April 9, 2005, at the Desmond Hotel in Albany. Archives from Milne and its history will be presented by UAlbany Archivist Geoffrey Williams at 7 p.m., following a welcome by UAlbany President Kermit Hall.

The Milne School was part of the New York State College for Teachers, which eventually became the University at Albany. The school was founded in 1845 as the Laboratory School, a teaching laboratory for education students at the college. The Milne School, today Milne Hall on the downtown campus, closed due to budget cuts in 1977. More than 1,300 of its living alumnae range from the oldest known living graduates from the class of 1929, with the average age of 90, to the youngest from the last class of 1977, with an average age of 46.

The event is $50 per person and includes dinner and dancing. A Sunday morning brunch will feature group tours of the former school, by reservation.
