Short profiles of Bobbi Nickels '70; Reese Moriyama '10; and Felicity Shoulders '08, followed by full Class Notes listings.
I appreciated Blake Timm's comprehensive look at the history of football at Pacific. I thought I could add a few details on the decision to drop football in 1992...Thomas Beck, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, 1991-2003, Forest Grove, Ore.
Congratulations! I love the new format of the Pacific magazine. I actually shed tears of joy upon reading that football has begun again after 19 years...Patricia Campbell Tennant '56, Prineville, Ore.
As an aging veteran, I was absolutely enthralled by your most recent e-issue...Colonel Daniel W. (Jake) Jacobowitz, USAF (Ret.) '65, Lorton, Va.
I enjoyed your article in the magazine (Fall 2010 “The Last Rich Year”). I suppose it was especially meaningful to me since I was at Pacific from 1941 until January 1943...Edsel V. Colvin '42, Gold Beach, Ore.
While I admire the sentiment, (Voices, “The World Cup and Immigration," Fall 2010)... Sean Butler '07, Spokane, Wash.
Fred Scheller ('43, M.A. '54) was the finest...Lunette Erwin, Houston, Texas
Although Pacific University is located on the western fringe of the continent, alumni live in all 50 U.S. states. Not surprisingly, most live in Oregon, followed by Washington, California and Hawai’i. There are just five alumni in distant Delaware (greetings Blue Hens!), but besides Idaho (in fifth at 400) there are pretty good contingents in Arizona (395), and over 200 each in Alaska, Minnesota, Montana, Oklahoma and Texas - enough for a great Go Boxers party!
Football and football (soccer), Jane Austen, malarial lizards and vineyard aches and pains.
