“Come together…” (The Beatles)
“Someday we’ll be together…” (Diana Ross and the Supremes)
“Come on people now, smile on your brother (and sister), everybody get together…” (Youngbloods)
A recent unofficial, unscientific poll reveals that most people from the Harvard/Radcliffe Class of 1973 react with denial when asked to respond to the fact that in a few short months it will be 50 years since commencement. “It can’t be.” “No way.” “How did that happen?” “I don’t (look) (act) like those old geezers from the Class of 1923 that I saw.”
Well, Class of 1973 it’s time to come together and embrace our 50 th . We’ve all achieved, grieved, tried, failed, suffered, rejoiced, loved and learned. Some of us are nationally and internationally known leaders and make significant contributions to their fields and people’s experiences. Most of us have less visible lives but also make significant contributions to the people and communities we encounter. We have a great deal to share with each other.
A reunion is the act of coming together again after being apart. Please plan to be a part of the coming together of the Great Class of 1973. The plans are in the works for a wonderful time in Cambridge. ClassACT HR73, along with the HAA and reunion committee, will keep you updated as the planning continues.
50TH REUNION VIDEO PROJECT
Above are the videos featuring classmates we have so far. The playlist is very hard to see! You will find it along the top of the screen just to the right of the title of the forum. It looks like this ≡. Click on the ≡ button. That will open a drop down menu. You can then scroll down the menu and choose individual videos to play.
For almost 50 years many in the Class of ‘73 have taken our college passions and continued to work, in ways large and small, towards a more equitable, responsible and engaged community. This pursuit has taken on many forms. Over the next several months, with Rick Brotman ‘73 at the helm, ClassACT HR73 intends to create a series of videos illustrating the stories of how our classmates are working towards positive change in their communities, the nation and the world.
If you would like to be interviewed about a project you are doing or an organization you are affiliated with, please fill out the form below and someone from the ClassACT HR73 team will get back to you. Let’s celebrate the work we’ve been doing to change the world!
