Milne Alumni January Newsletter
January 15, 2014

by Judy Koblintz Madnick, '61

Dear Milne Alumni and Supporters,

In this issue:

* Digitization Project Update!
* Need News!
* Sad News

(Please note that links included in Milne Alumni Newsletters may at some point become obsolete.)


As of 01/14/14, our total is $12, we're halfway to our goal! If you click here and then click on the donations link, you will see that there are many alumni who have not yet contributed to this important project. Please help us reach our goal so that we are able to digitize all available Crimson & White and Bricks & Ivy editions, which will enable us to enjoy full-text web access of many of our Milne yearbooks and/or newspapers via searchable files. If we, as Milne School Alumni, don't ensure that our memorabilia is preserved...who will?

Please remember that the total necessary to complete this project is $25,000 (but, as with anything else, the price will rise as time passes) if you haven't yet donated or wish to increase your contribution, please consider doing so soon. Thank you very much to those who have already contributed.

For further information, see A list of donations is available at If your donation does not yet appear on our list, please note that the University sends updates every two weeks.


Unless you enjoy simply being reminded about our Digitization Project and learning who has passed away, PLEASE SEND NEWS!


Please note that I rely upon the Albany Times Union and input from other alumni for this information, so if you become aware of someone who has passed away, please let me know. If a name is underlined, it represents a link to the obituary. Many obituaries are available free for a limited time only.
