Eli Botkin (MS '51)

Eli Botkin, MS in Physics, has published a chapter titled “Still Finding Pleasure After 90” in a new book on aging, Aging Wisely . . . Wisdom of Our Elders, by Irving I. Silverman and Ellen Beth Siegel. The book is a compendium of essays by an extraordinary group of 75 seniors and the professionals who care for them, on a wide range of topics about how we age and how we can do so better.

Richard Smyth (BS '51)

It is a good idea to try to collect information about our classmates.  My wife is the Alumni Notes editor for her class (1952) at Occidental.  She has found the long-time graduates don't respond well to internet notices.  They often do not have access to email and/or forget to look at their email.  They move to retirement homes and forget to re-establish their email address.
I am living in Lompoc, CA, which has the best climate of anywhere in the world.    My wife is here with me.  We have 5 grown children.  They have 12 children (grand children).  They have 6 children (great-grand children) with another one due this week.
