Brynn Aurelius (A.B., '62) For a general update, see the writeup in my profile in the William and Mary Alumni Today-2009 book. Of possible interest to American History enthusiasts, I am a member of the Society of the Cincinnati, the Society of Colonial Wars, and the Saint Nicholas Society of the City of New York. (11/09)
Peter Bradley (B.A., '64) After leaving the College I joined The Peace Corps. I still remember the day I got the letter, I was still on campus. They invited me to "Iran." Iran? I barely knew where it was, history or no history. (In my mind, I put it where Iraq is.) We trained at the University of Texas in Austin, picniced on the L.B.J. Ranch, were sent to Mexico City and back by bus (that was fun!), and learned about teaching ESL and how to speak Farsi. Two years in Iran, with a side trip through Afghanistan and India, taught me a lot about a history I was barely aware of, and bacillary dysentery. More later. We just figured out where the ink is for the printer, so it's back to work. (11/09)
Alice Luzader Cade (B.A., '68) I am a retired middle school social studies teacher. I taught for 33 years in Prince William County Virginia. I taught Virginia History and Government; U.S. History; U.S. Government and Economics, and, finally, World History. I designed and wrote county curriculums for eighth-grade government and for world history. I continue to be an avid reader and enjoy passing on a love of history to my grandchildren, who made their first trip to Williamsburg this summer. I currently work as a paralegal for a small law firm in northern Virginia. One of the attorneys for whom I work is also a history major, class of 1972. (11/09)
Stephen Row (A.B., '68) I retired from Richmond Newspapers, Inc., in 2003, relocated to Knoxville, and remarried in 2004. We relocated to Greenville, N.C., in June 2006, when my wife became chairman of the Psychology Department at East Carolina University. Since moving here, I have done quite a bit of freelance writing, and this past summer, I had an article published in the Colonial Williamsburg magazine on current archeological research into the "Lost Colony" at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site. I write for the East Carolina quarterly magazine and have written for several other magazines and newspapers (including one article on actress Linda Lavin for the W&M alumni magazine), in addition to teaching a course in beginning reporting at ECU since spring 2008. I'll be teaching my sixth class in the spring 2010 semester. (12/09)
James Cobb (B.A., '69) I am pastor of Ascension Lutheran Church, Baltimore and had a new book published in Jan., titled Lutheran DNA. Wipf and Stock publishers. (3/10)
Kay Driscoll (B.A., '69) I married W&M graduate Larry Driscoll in August, 1969. After living in Ohio and New Jersey, we moved to Oak Park, CA, in 1988. I received a Master's Degree in Library Science from UCLA in 1992 and worked as a children's librarian in Oxnard, CA, before recently retiring. We have two children, one a video and film editor who lives with his wife and our first grandson in Culver City, CA, and the other a children's librarian who lives in South Pasadena, CA. (3/10)
