Alumni January Newsletter
Classmates & Milne Alumni,
If there are any University/Milne student teachers in your Milne experience, please let me know. Here is what Judy Koblintz Madnick, 1961, wrote me when I asked her:
"I met one at a funeral on Friday. His name is Mel Horowitz. He student-taught in the fall of 1961 social studies. Off the top of my head, I remember Samuel Starr, who student-taught under Dan Ganeles, but I don't recall what year. Another student teacher's name was Walter Silver, who also taught under Dan Ganeles. Sam I remember because he was a retiree who always wanted to teach. I believe he flunked student teaching and never taught again. As it turned out, he was the brother of one of my in-laws' best friends, and I saw him again at a bat mitzvah!! Walter Silver married a woman that I knew, so I always remembered his name. I ran into him a couple of months ago at the new Cheesecake Factory here in Albany. I would never have recognized him, but I recognized his wife. Then there was Bob Niles, a math student-teacher. Again, I can't recall the year. I've run into him a couple of times over the years, which is why I remember him."
Perhaps you can send me a list of the student teachers you remember. You can look at the Faculty and Staff listings on the Milne website for additional subject information. I would appreciate your help.
Reverends & Doctors at Milne
The second project began when I copied off the names from the Milne Alumni Name Directory with the titles of Rev. or Dr. I would like to know more about the people listed and if I have missed any clergy or doctors. (Note: This list has been updated and is available at Careers.)
I would also like to know whether the doctors are Ph.D.s or M.D.s and what their specialties are. If you could write me back with any information you know, I would like to add and update this list. You can copy the list and paste it onto a new e-mail to Mary Welch with the additional information.Thank you for your help.
I would like to eventually create a list of Milne attorneys, teachers, writers, artists, and other professions and interests. These lists would not be published, but I believe they will be helpful in connecting alumni with each other.
Family Name Directory - 1893-1977
(Note: The list originally included in this newsletter has been updated and is available at Family List.)
If you have any comments on this list, as to siblings at Milne, please let me know.
I hope you have a good month until the next newsletter. I look forward to hearing from you.
