The current political situation has me wondering whether all those 1960s protests were for naught. I continue to practice international corporate law at Duane Morris, where I primarily represent Brazilian-based institutions and individuals in their U.S. business operations. For balance, I take piano lessons; serve on the board of an unusual chamber-music group, SHUFFLEConcerts; and am on the advisory board of Humanitas360, an NGO serving Latin America. Retirement is an existential discussion for me and my husband, who also continues in his law practice. We live in Manhattan, and our daughter and family live nearby, which is a definite plus.

Charles Giuliano has published three illustrated books of poetry since 2014: “Shards of a Life,” “Total Gonzo Poems” and “Ultra Cosmic Gonzology.” He is working on a family history, “Gloucester Poems: Nugents of Rockport.” Charles writes, “The new book includes an extensive interview with my mother, Dr. Josephine R. Flynn. She was a 1933 graduate of Middlesex College of Medicine and Surgery, which later became the campus of Brandeis. There is discussion of studying anatomy in the just-built Castle during a winter before heat was installed. This pre-history of Brandeis offers rare and intriguing insights.” Retired lawyer Larry Greenberg still plays basketball and tennis. His family — wife Judy, sons and grandchildren — are doing well. Judy retired last year as director of the Kreeger Museum, in Washington, D.C. Larry writes, “One of the things I am thankful for, and for which I will always be indebted to Brandeis, is the friendships I made there, which endure to this day. Though this IT world is way beyond me, I exchange emails regularly with friends throughout the country, and I am also fortunate to see many of them.” Leonard Lubinsky has lived with Marian Solomon ’66 in New York City for 10 years. After 25 years as a Massachusetts school superintendent and 12 as director or co-director of a teacher certification program he founded, he has mostly retired (though he still reviews preschools trying to become part of New York’s universal pre-kindergarten program). Leonard serves on the board of his synagogue and on the advisory council for the 92Y Himan Brown Senior Program; he also volunteers at the 92Y nursery school. He writes, “Our two sons and their families have moved nearby (one family in Westchester and one in Brooklyn). As a result, we have four grandchildren to dote on.” Lawrence Rosen retired from the Cromwell Chair in Anthropology at Princeton but remains an adjunct professor of law at Columbia. His two most recent books are in press; they continue his interests in comparative law, culture and the Middle East. His essay on Islamic mosaics won the Donne Prize from the Royal Anthropological Institute. In 2016, Princeton awarded him the Graduate Mentoring Award. Marc Sapir writes, “Alive and well, so far. At 75, still fighting for justice, playing my bassoon, cavorting with grandkids, writing, skiing, backpacking and working out at the Y.” Linda Tobin and her husband, Stephen Pepper, who live in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, have three children and a grandson. Linda recently returned from a stint volunteering at Aravind Eye Hospitals, in Madurai, India. “I’ve been to India many times,” she writes. “My first was after my junior year at Brandeis in 1962, through the Experiment in International Living. I still have good friends there.” Stephen retired after working at NASA for more than 40 years.
