50th reunion

“Mercy, mercy me, things aren’t what they used to be.”… Marvin Gaye

“They paved paradise and put up a parking lot”…. Joni Mitchell

“Look at Mother Nature on the run in the 1970s”…. Neil Young

Where were you on that spring day during our Freshman year? For most of us, mitigating the effects of climate change isn’t happening fast enough, but much has been accomplished since April 22, 1970, the first Earth Day. Back then there was no EPA, no Clean Air Act, no Endangered Species Act and no UN COP Climate Change conferences. Did you gather on the Boston Common that day with 20 million other people nationwide to voice concerns about smog, polluted water and silent springs? How did being a Harvard/Radcliffe student that day influence your thinking about the environment? Have you dedicated your career to the planet? Do you and your family reduce, recycle and reuse or have solar panels on your roof? Are you anxious about the world we are leaving our children and grandchildren? Our 50th Reunion allows us to take stock, compare notes and, perhaps, as we did in 1970, continue to achieve change together.

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!

    October 2022 50th Reunion Note

    by Henrietta Wigglesworth-Lodge

    “Who are you?”..... The Who

    “What’s Your Name? Is it Mary or Sue?”...Don and Juan

    “Let me please introduce myself, I hope you know my name”….Rolling Stones

    Our faces and the length of our hair may have changed a bit, but our Harvard/Radcliffe experiences are constants in our lives. Our reunion will provide plenty of opportunities to reconnect with people we knew then and meet others who shared the same four years in Cambridge. What was your relationship with Harvard/Radcliffe then? What is it now? Do you have vague memories or even complete blanks to fill? How did you expound on McLuhan’s “The Medium is the Message” for the Expos placement test? Did you get lost in the Widener stacks? Did you fill up blue exam books in Memorial Hall? Did you skinny dip in the Adams House pool? Where were you when Harvard Square was filled with rioters? Was there really a chimpanzee living at Cabot Hall? There will be many memorable conversations during the reunion. We hope you will be part of them. Please plan to come. It won’t be the same without you!

    “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.
