Before our 50th reunion in 2011, Nancy Greenawalt Washburn conducted a survey, in which members of the class of 1961 responded to queries ranging from career to children to catastrophes. This year Nancy sent out a survey with an updated set of questions focusing on the past ten years, the future, and how our lives have been influenced by the Whitman experience. See the survey questions and responses from your Whitman colleagues.
