Dear Milne Alumni and Supporters,

In this issue:

* Digitization Project Update!
* Class of 1973 Reunion
* Sad News

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


To date we have received $10,772 toward digitizing all available Crimson & White and Bricks & Ivy editions. This includes $5,000 in matching funds from the Marcia Brown Library Fund. We are now able to begin our digitzation project, which will enable us to enjoy full-text web access of many of our Milne yearbooks and/or newspapers via searchable files.

Please remember that the total necessary to complete this project is $25, if you haven't yet donated or wish to increase your contribution, we're not finished yet!

For further information, see A list of donations is available at


Peter Bulger, '73, reports that the Class of '73 celebrated its 40th reunion with two events: On Friday August 16th, classmates met at the Desmond and swapped stories. The following evening, some class members cruised on the Captain JP down the Hudson. No business was discussed except to prepare for the 45th.


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.
