Jane and Walt Daniels (with grandson Andrew) went on a safari to Kenya and Tanzania with Intrepid Travel. “We saw lots of animals, obviously, and about what we expected to see. Somewhat unexpected were the comfortable temperatures due to high elevation—lower temps than at home. This was a bare-bones tour with tenting most nights without fences and hyenas and zebras wandered through camp in the middle of the night. Our guide was every bit as good as the high-priced tours with our bus getting prime spots for viewing because we got there first (price is getting up really early).” Jon Meyer’s photographic portfolio, Just Another Pretty Landscape, was published in LensWork, No. 163, June 2023, pages 38-51. He was very happy with this because LensWork is one of the premier, if not the premier, photographic fine art publishers. The link to Jon’s website features many of the images in the Industrial Art Gallery: www.jonmeyerphotographicart.com. From co-head agents Ken Johansen, Phil Kron, and Jim Adler: “The class of 1960 always excels in its support of the College through the Dartmouth College Fund, but this year we outdid ourselves. Our participation rate of 72.2percent ranked us second among all classes, our 20th year in a row hitting more than 70 percent. We raised $464,442, our 18th straight year for breaking the year-out dollar record. We had 58 classmates (13.7 percent) who were 1769 Society members—the highest percentage for all classes. Thanks to everyone who made it happen.” Larry Dingman returned from a three-week trip to Alaska with Gayla Troup. He visited some old summers of 1963-76 haunts near Fairbanks and other places along the Yukon. Fun and great memories! Before our last reunion John Goyette urged trying to invite a Dartmouth professor to speak to our class on “The Origins of Bigotry,” a subject that deeply infects not only American society but world populations as well, and we’ve been ducking the issue. Remember, recent obituaries, Class Notes, and past newsletters are easily accessible on our class of 1960 website, www.1960.dartmouth.org.
