Milne School Announces Reunion
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.
