Adam Falcone was elected chair of the board for Whitman-Walker Health, a health center in Washington, D.C., that specializes in LGBT and HIV medical care. At Brandeis, Adam’s last name was Falk; later he and his husband legally changed their last names to Falcone (a blend of their former last names, Falk and Connor). Marc Tyler Nobleman writes, “After six years of work, multiple debunked rumors, 34 rejections and more status updates than any friend should have to endure, my nonfiction picture book for older readers, ‘Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman,’ is now available.” It tells the little-known story of Bill Finger, who wrote the first Batman story, designed Batman’s costume, and gave Gotham City and the Batmobile their names. According to Marc’s book, Finger’s onetime partner, Bob Kane, took all the credit for creating Batman. Finger died in 1974. Kimberlee Schumacher, who has served as director of family, interfaith and community programs at Combined Jewish Philanthropies in Boston for the last five years, was named interim executive director of the Jewish Federation of the North Shore. The leaders of both organizations say they are talking about a potential partnership.
