55th Reunion
June 6-8, 2014

Philippa Strum, P’98, a senior scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., delivered the opening lecture at the Supreme Court Historical Society’s 2013 Leon Silverman Lecture Series. She spoke about Gonzalo and Felícitas Mendez (Mendez v. Westminster) as part of a series on litigants in landmark 20th-century U.S. Supreme Court cases. Letty Pogrebin has been traveling around the country to promote her latest book, “How to Be a Friend to a Friend Who’s Sick.” The book has received glowing reviews. Helen Yafa Meyerhoff writes, “Jim and I are enjoying our family, who, fortunately for us, live nearby. I still work part time as a therapist and employee-assistance counselor for a big health conglomerate, and enjoy my pastime of duplicate bridge. I am also involved in a group that discusses New Yorker magazine articles as well as a book group led by an excellent teacher (not surprising for a Brandeis English major). When the oldest of our seven grandchildren graduated from the University of Maryland recently, Jim and I had dinner with a Brandeis friend, Jane Jacobson Stein, and her husband, Bob ’60, who live in D.C. I am enjoying Letty Pogrebin’s prominence; I saw her not long ago on a TV special about the women’s movement. I would welcome hearing from classmates.”
