What's the purpose?
'44's - the War Babies
who sired the Baby
Boomer generation - have always
been a most active Cornell class
. . From the very first - when all
of us belonged to separate Men's
and Women's Classes under the early
leadership of Lou Daukas and Kay
Snell Sigety - we began to "cluster"...
and we're still doing so many years
This '44 website is a new attempt to "cluster" as individuals. . but this time on a modern electronic basis. Considering our age level, we're a fairly large alumni group . . Yet there are a great many who entered Cornell in the Fall of '40 who - for one reason or another - have not joined with our class organization in any of our many activities.
this quite comprehensive - and hopefully,
very nostalgic - look at '44 and what
you and our other classmates have
done over the years, it's our hope
that many of those who have remained
outside the fold will re-join the
Class and participate with us, if
only on a Website basis. How
many more ways can I say that we want
you back with us?
while we're at it, we know that we
haven't covered all of the nooks
and crannies of our on-campus and
alumni lives, and will welcome any
and all suggestions from you as to
additions. The '44 Webmaster awaits
your input. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Did you notice the line on our opening page - "Dedicated to our progeny"?
Let me say it again . . This website is forever - it's a true time capsule -
and your very hip children and grandchildren who are into computers will
be able to read about you and the on-campus and alumni life that we as '44's
all enjoyed . . Our offspring were very much in our minds when we planned this
updated website . .
This is the place!
the months to come, this '44 Update
page will serve as the location
for pertinent Class information
. . We plan to POST updated '44
info on this page two times a year -
in January and July . . . On these
same two occasions, we'll revise
- change - and update our Class
Roster, Missing Persons, and
Deceased pages. If you have any
personal change you'd like to
make in this '44 Website, please
keep the January 1 and July 1
dates in mind. Keep in touch
with us by "hitting" your
Website - just one of the ways
you can stay young by staying
