October 19, 1943 Minneapolis-St. Paul MN Professor of Philosophy/Folk Musician www.michaelkac.com Single 1 Graduated from Haverford College (PA) in 1965 and did three years of grad work at U of PA before moving to UCLA and finishing Ph.D. in linguistics. Joined the faculty of the University of Minnesota in 1972 and have been here ever since. Published a couple of books and numerous articles on arcane subjects, along with the other strange things that academics do. In college I became a professional musician, playing folk music; worked with some rock bands, including the Philadelphia-based Mandrake Memorial, with whom I recorded two albums as keyboard player and backup singer; then joined guitarist Linda Cohen in a duo performing an eclectic brand of music I call renaissancebaroquerockjazztechno. These days I am back with folk music, playing an average of 1.7 gigs per month.

Worked on IHS '61 50th reunion! Helping to maintain contact as two Lindas plan the 55th. Details in Current Class Notes:What I've been up to:George Kent
It was great to see so many people at the reunion.  There never is enough time to have all the conversations one would like to have, but as someone said in the past - it is better to wish there had been more time than the other way around!

As the 55th approaches, we are again struggling with classmates "disappearing".  Please let us know when you change email provider, phone number, or mail address.  The list of those for whom we have no valid contact information is growing.

January 27, 1944 Cambridge MA Lifelong volunteer, wife, mother, grandmother Married 2 Cayuga Heights Boynton Boynton Spent the year after high school in Germany. Concentrated in German at Harvard.

Married George 12/65 and became a Navy Wife. Grad work and teacher certification. Couldn't get a job. Decided to start family. Raised 2 nice kids while George was at sea. Did lots of volunteer work and substitute teaching. Taught every level from Montessori pre-school to senior high (almost any subject). Elder in Presbyterian Church. Chairman of the Ombudsman Council for the Sixth Naval District.

Love visiting new places, although I no longer enjoy traveling by plane, especially overseas. Visited diplomat son in Uzbekistan, Thailand, and Ukraine. As of July 2016 they are back in Ukraine again where GP is Deputy Chief of Mission at the US Embassy. Oldest grandchild is starting her sophomore year at BU. Nice to have her in the area.

Worked for two years on our 50th reunion. Great fun getting to know classmates I hadn't known well before. Loved the process of searching for and finding folks who had slipped off the address list. It was wonderful to see such a good turnout for the reunion. I hope more will add their profiles to this online history of our class.

55th reunion was smaller in size, but still lots of fun.  So good to visit with all who came.  The older we get, the more the friendships from the past mean.  Many thanks to those who arranged the reunion and to those who attended.

I’ve got my firewood all cut, so I’m looking forward to a long winter when I can hunker down and dig into my latest musical fascination, blues and boogie piano. Some other members of our class expressed an interest in a jam at our reunion, so if any of you have any thoughts about that, send me an email at rkoski@zoom-dsl.com.
