Surprise! ’44's begat more than 250!

     Yes! . . When you scroll down to the list of ’44 legacies that appears below - and note the names of the children of your classmates and mine - you’ll be quite surprised as I was. More than 250 ’44 children have been listed and we know that - in time - our new Website viewers will add yet another 25 or 30 more children that we may have been missed in our research effort.

     In case you’re curious, the "research" was performed at the offices of the Cornell Alumni Magazine by Lauren Coakley, ’04, a third generation ’44 legacy and the granddaughter of our Webmaster, and Lauren was given access to the "files" by Adele Durham Robinette, the current Business Manager of the magazine and the daughter of George Durham, ’44 . . The data obtained by the two is not only extensive - it’s also authentic.

     The format pretty much follows that of Legacies 2, the website page bylined by Peter Miller, ’44, the pages devoted to a listing of the grandchildren of our ’44 classmates. There’s one major difference in the listing below, however: our Webmaster has chosen to provide the names of the legacies under an alphabetical list that uses the maiden names of our co-ed ’44's. I personally think this is a good move for few of us will recognize the majority of the listed ’44 co-ed/parents by their married names. The legacy’s name in the column at the right invariably gives you a clue as to the co-ed’s married name.

     Several interesting things come to light when you compare the Legacies 1 and Legacies 2 pages.
Our classmates appear NOT to be producing many third generation legacies . . Our grandchild legacies (see Legacy 2) total about one-third of our second generation legacies . . Are our ‘44 grandchildren applying elsewhere, or if they are applying to Cornell, are they being bypassed? . . Or are our children having smaller families? . . Or is the "tab" - the annual cost of attending Cornell - considered now by many to be prohibitive? . . I’m not trying to open up a can of worms here, but the disparity between the generations in terms of the number of legacies within the two generations is quite evident.

     I’d be remiss if I didn’t close out my page by reminding you that you can add to, delete from, and/or correct line items in this legacy list by contacting the Webmaster at As stated below, revisions can be made each January 1, May 1, and September 1. I’d also be remiss if I didn’t express my delight in being able to contact my many classmates in this manner. I express it!
