“All-School” Reunion a Success – October 11-12, 2014

Many thanks to the nearly fifty guests who shared the Valley community over Columbus Day weekend, 2014. Alumni, family members, former faculty and neighboring friends enjoyed a number of activities, including a history presentation by Denis Clark DS’69, Jack Newell DS’56 and Bob Gatje DS’44. Denis showed slides of the original Telluride hydropower plants while discussing their early history and evolution of the educational training for engineers at those remote locations. Bob gave selected readings from his memoir of student days at Deep Springs in the 1940s. Jack also gave selected readings and caught everyone up to date on the impending publication in early 2015 of his history of Deep Springs, The Electric Edge of Academe. Other activities included a group hike to the Druid, a tour of the ranch cattle herd and valley grazing allotments conducted by ranch manager Janice Hunter with SB cowboy John Stuart DS’12, and a fine BBQ dinner provided by the SB cooks and BH Chef Marc Mora. The next “all-class” reunion will be the centennial itself in 2017.
