Bert Foer, founder and former president of the American Antitrust Institute, received the Consumer Federation of America’s Esther Peterson Consumer Service Award. For the past eight years, Steven Hochman has worked at the U.S. Treasury, advising emerging-market countries on infrastructure finance. He previously rated state and local government bonds at Moody’s Investors Service. He and his wife, Jane, enjoyed their four years of living with their three grandchildren (7-year-old Max and 4-year-old twins Anna and Juliet), daughter Sarah, son-in- law Ted and dog Lily after they realized their oh-so-chic loft studio (with the great Manhattan skyline view) in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn wouldn’t quite work for a family their size. They finally found a home nearby in February 2016. Susan Kolodny is a psychoanalyst/psychologist in private practice and a faculty member at the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis. She’s the author of “The Captive Muse: On Creativity and Its Inhibition” and a book of poems, “After the Firestorm.” She lives in Oakland with Lewis, her husband of 37 years. Their son and his wife live nearby with their 2-year-old granddaughter. Carla Lipsig-Mummé’s book “Work in a Warming World,” which she authored with Stephen McBride, was named one of the 100 best books on Canadian politics. The book chronicles the role of work in producing the greenhouse gases that cause global warming and the potential of the work world to radically slow global warming. Lois Reckitt ran for a seat in the Maine House of Representatives. Bob Sunshine, P’94, P’00, stepped down after almost nine years as deputy director (and, briefly, acting director) of the Congressional Budget Office. He assumed a less-demanding senior adviser position with the organization, which provides nonpartisan economic and budgetary analysis for the U.S. Congress. Bob is looking forward to spending more time with his four grandchildren, seeing more of the world and doing lots of other things that a 50- to 60-hour workweek doesn’t permit. He and his Brandeis sweetheart, Laurie (Altman) ’68, P’94, P’00, will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in June 2017.
