Class Notes

1957: Dad’s Chevy Coupe and A Few Good Friends:
It’s not the cast of Riverdale, or Dobie Gillis — these tailgaters seems to be enjoying a Denison football game, and plugging their sororities and fraternities. If any of you recognize yourself or anyone else in the photo, let us know at denmag@denison.edu. We’d also like to know if the whole gang arrived together in the same car.

Bruce Bailey and his wife, Gail, of San Diego, together with Don Higgins and his wife, Peg, of Mount Pleasant, S.C., write that in November, 2019, they “departed on a five week sojourn to the Middle East and Asia.” The trip began with a few days in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, followed by a cruise, which lasted 21 days. This was Don’s first cruise since the Navy. “He was delighted,” they write, “as he didn’t have to stand watch or shoot big guns. Bruce, being an Air Force guy, kept looking for the pointy end of the ship without success. Fortunately, Gail was able to explain everything to him.” The cruise included port calls in India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand and finally, Singapore. “We experienced wonderful sights, outstanding food and marvelous people,” they write, adding that “Singapore was a perfect spot to finish the trip and spend time enjoying the city-state. Don and Peg spent many years living in Singapore back in the ’80s and ’90s and were able to share their love of the area. Don is still a member of the tanglin and cricket clubs in Singapore. They write that the local food and hospitality was outstanding. “One of many highlights,” they remark, “was watching an international soccer tournament on the Singapore Cricket Club grounds. The world is a big place with lots to see and do and the Baileys and Higgins families highly recommend that all who can, get out there and explore.

It was the beginning of several moves for us, all related to Chuck’s career. We loved living in Oakland, N.J.; Hudson, Ohio; Charlotte, N.C.; and finally Pittsburgh, where we have been firmly planted for 30 years. We have three children and six grandchildren all in the Pittsburgh area. I retired after loving every minute of 25 years as an elementary school librarian in the Upper St. Clair School District. Retirement was an adjustment, but it didn’t take long to settle happily into a new life. Without my Denison experience I would not have a husband of 50 years, children I love, and friends I cherish. Crawford second floor was very good to me! Joan Kuechle, now Hewins, a roommate for four years, was a remarkable gift. To paraphrase, if you don’t get old, you can’t have old friends!”

Less than 36 hours after his sports medicine clinic in Falls Church, Va., transformed into a coronavirus first-response center, John Tabacco was putting on his surgical gown, an N95 respirator mask and two pairs of gloves. He headed out to the parking lot to meet a frightened woman who had a fever and back pain and feared she had the virus. Being an internist for the Washington Redskins, he was accustomed to working in and around obstacles in chaotic locker rooms and knew how to communicate with injured players while diagnosing ailments on a football field. He asked the man in the car with the woman to get out of the passenger seat so he could climb in and give her an abdominal exam. Just a month prior, he was tending to young teen athletes with concussions and elderly retirees with aching knees at PMA Health, an immediate care facility that specializes in sports injuries. Now doing his part on the front lines of the novel Coronavirus pandemic, he joins other sports doctors across the country who are applying their skill sets in ways they never would have imagined. He determined the woman in the car had a kidney stone and not coronavirus, and felt that he had contributed to the cause in some small way. He offered her immediate care to keep her from an emergency room bed that was becoming a dwindling commodity for virus-stricken patients. Tabacco also served as a team sports physician at George Washington University.

Importantly, it proposes a way to provide these homes without decreasing the number of affordable homes available to non-essential workers.”
