Class News



We share a photo passed along by Bob Wright taken from the official Commissioning Ceremony of Ensign Kara Dowling, Class of 2020.  Classmates fortunate enough to have met Midshipman Dowling will recall her poise and comfort at Class gathering and her total appreciation for the 72CE internship that sponsored her in Cambodia.  Kara shared with the class an amazing diary she kept while overseas. See a letter from Kara (Cambodia) here.


Andy Snow picture from our 10th Reunion

Jimmy Stwert at his 50th (Our 10th)

Note from Andy:

Cool. Attached HERE is the full resolution file to make it the best it can be. I scanned the slide years ago (1996) and saved it. 

And he was as gracious and wonderful as you would expect. What an amazing human being. Frank Capra’s movie "Wonderful Life" is one of my favorites. 
Donna Reed is glowing. I well up every time I see and hear them on the screen.
Back to the 80s... PAW ran it in B/W back then since they didn’t do color printing.
Yet, it’s all about the sea of ORANGE HATS, right? 
And the faces of the guys when we were there for our 10th Reunion. 
They don’t look old to me now, so we’ll be fine in 2022. 
WOW. Where do the years go, hey? 
 All the best man.

Jim Marshall '72 - Princeton Veteran's Association

A discussion with Jim Marshall '72 concerning his Princeton experience and  the Princeton Veteran's Association here.



How many Princeton grads does it take to assemble a baby gate?

How many Princetonians does it take to put a baby gate together?
The answer is none. It takes the spouse of a Princetonian.


The befuddled Princetonians are Bob (I'm an Attorney) Wright and Doug (I'm not that kind of an engineer) Harrison. After a couple of futile hours they called spouse Joan who told them how to do it.
