Loring Knoblauch '64 reports on Class lunch in Chicago

On May 7, 2013, the Yale Class of 1964 had a lunch at the new Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House just opened on Oak Street. Bill Moeller, Bill Bowe, Cole Oehler, Ted Jones, Bob Reum, Bill Lear, and I attended. (A typical lunch turnout ranges from 6 to 12.) Great pride in Yale's hockey victory was savored by all. All seven of us are still working either part or full time and all seven of us are planning to attend our 50th reunion (though many of us have never attended a previous reunion).

It is endlessly fascinating to find out how much we all have in common even though we have taken quite varied paths. Everyone is giving back in some way or the other. Most are moderate, middle-of-the-road political thinkers, not extremists. All are active, interesting people and our conversations range over an incredible range of topics.

We have been having lunches three or four times a year for at least seven years now and people still seem to enjoy each other and the lunches. A golf outing is planned for this summer for those of us who are still aficionados. Two of us still interview for the Yale Alumni Schools Committee.

If Yale classmates are visiting Chicago and know well in advance, we would gladly organize a lunch to include them.
