Faculty Videos

Time to take an intellectual and spiritual trip down memory lane with three of the most extraordinary figures of our undergraduate years: the great art historian Vincent Scully, the unforgettable University Chaplain William Sloane Coffin, and Sterling Professor of Humanities Harold Bloom, who passed away on October 14. Links to lectures by all three of them are present on our Faculty Videos page.

Click here for some of Professor Scully’s most memorable lectures, including talks on Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn, Maya Lin, and modern architecture.

Click here for some of Reverend Coffin’s most memorable sermons at New York’s historic Riverside Church, where he served for more than ten years as Senior Minister after his time at Yale.

And click here to view Professor Bloom’s lectures.

We’re still looking for videos of historian John Morton Blum and philosopher Paul Weiss. We’ll let you know as soon as we find them. Please tell us if there are any other professors you’d like us to search for. FIND MORE on our Faculty videos page.

Our next regular meeting will be held on the second Wednesday of the month at the Yale Club, 50 Vanderbilt Ave. We gather around 12:30pm, but latecomers are always welcome. You need not be a member of the Club to attend this lunch (but bring some cash to reimburse a classmate member who will sign for your meal). The conversation and topics are unrestrained, including lies about your golf score! For more information, please contact Dave Richards.

Class Notes

By Marty Snapp

Lanny Goldman, who taught philosophy at Miami for 25 years and at William and Mary for another 13, has just published his ninth book, Life’s Values, in which he seeks to explain what is of ultimate value in our individual lives. “Not that too many people will read it, but that’s the way of life with philosophy books,” he says. More fool them, because Lanny is an original thinker with some perceptive things to say.

He says this book is going to be his last, but he’ll never stop reading, teaching, and thinking about philosophy. “Philosophical issues don’t have quick answers, so I’m still at it. You get to deal with some of the deepest and most interesting questions. Teaching has also been rewarding because I’ve had some of the best students, some of which have gone on to become … READ MORE

Dave Wenner’s
Retirement Hobby”

When Dave retired in 2003 from a 30-year career in management consulting with McKinsey & Company, the first item on his bucket list was to learn about “the mysteries of the universe, from the largest scales (astrophysics and cosmology) to the smallest (quantum theory).” This was the delayed fulfillment of a childhood dream Dave had as a boy growing up near Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Dave started by consuming dozens of nontechnical books on the history of physics, astrophysics and cosmology, but soon decided to hire a post-doc to tutor him in physics, while collecting and reading first editions… READ MORE


We have some colorful, terrific photos of classmates having fun!

“Our Man in Bhutan” Doug Schofield and his wife Janet Schofield have been in Bhutan 11 years, while visiting or working in more than 120 countries worldwide during their careers. With a wide variety of contacts and many contributions to Bhutan, including launching the private Royal Thimphu College, Doug and Janet are completing books on their experiences there. A Tibetan monk took time off from his 3-year meditation to snap this picture of Doug – complete with Yale hat – and Janet in front of a 15,000-ft mountain in Bhutan. They expect to be returning to the U.S. soon, as three daughters and family ties pull – and those mountains get ever-harder to climb.



Rick Luis and his wife Nita Luis have sent in some happy poses, featuring good times and good friends. SEE PHOTOS
