IN MEMORY OF LLOYD THOMAS DEWHURST (Class of 1966)
written by his sister, JoAnn Dewhurst Koozer
posted 16 January 2014

Lloyd Dewhurst Lloyd T. Dewhurst, Class of 1966

My brother, Lloyd Thomas Dewhurst (1947-2005), attended the American International School at Delhi in the mid 1960's. He was there for the 1964-65 school year and possibly for part of the school year before that. My family lived in Lashkar Gah, Afghanistan, at that time where our father worked for the Bureau of Reclamation as a part of the Helmand Valley Project, developing irrigation systems for the farmers.

posted 13 January 2014

I have moved into an apartment complex for older people. I cannot believe I am turning 65 this year and eligible for medicare! I am still taking photographs and am in the process of writing a book about my life overseas. I am hoping I can get back to Istanbul one more time this year.

RAGA FOR DOUG HANEY
Written by John Adamson (Class of 1969)
posted 7 January 2014

This piece is written in tribute to Doug Haney (AIS Class of 1969) and his wife Becky (AIS Class of 1970), the ultimate Third-Culture-Kid couple.

They met at AIS and for those of us who knew them, came to embody it. While at AIS Doug was a member of a truly remarkable band called, "Yesterday's Children," hence the reference at the end.

This SONG is offered with love and gratitude for their friendship and enduring influence in the lives of many AIS alums.-John Adamson, (email dated 7 January 2014)

AIS/AES ALUMNI NETWORK - BEHIND THE SCENES
posted 2 January 2014
posted 6 January 2016 (on Facebook)

They say it takes a village to raise a child.

In our AIS/AES alumni "village," our village certainly includes the children of alumni (as well as spouses, parents, faculty and friends), who step in to prepare and help set up for reunions, do odd jobs for us and pitch in when needed.

One alumni "child" we would like to highlight is Stefan Rykowski, son of Anne Weathersby (Class of 1965), who has helped with our alumni website since July 2011 when Tim Brown (Class of 1970) retired as webmaster.

Stefan has been hearing about India all his life from his mother. He loves to travel and has taken every opportunity to visit exotic places whenever possible, including traveling to India with his family for the 1995 AIS/AES reunion trip. Stefan lives in the Washington, DC area, where he graduated from the University of Maryland with two degrees -- a BA in psychology and a BS in Business Logistics. He has worked for various consulting firms in the DC area, including IBM, and now works for the American College of Cardiology. He enjoys many activities in his spare time, including running, playing soccer, and bar trivia.

Helping Stefan administrate the web site is Mary Williamson (Class of 1974). If you have news or photos to share, please continue to send them to Mary.

Remember that this is your web site and your alumni friends want to hear from you!

JOSEPH ALLEN STEIN, ARCHITECT
posted October 2013

Calenda

As many of you know, Mr. Joseph Allen Stein designed and built the amazing structure and grounds of what we enjoyed as the American International School (AIS)...now, the American Embassy School (AES).

"Joseph Stein was an American architect and a major figure in the establishment of a regional modern architecture in the San Francisco Bay area in the 1940s and 1950s during the early days of the environmental design movement. In 1952, he moved to India. He is noted for designing several important buildings in India, most notably in Lodhi Estate in Central Delhi, nicknamed "Steinabad" after him, and where today the 'Joseph Stein Lane' is the only road in Delhi named after an architect." -Wikipedia

Mr. Stein passed away on 6 October 2001 - 12 years ago. We thought it appropriate to honor him the month of October with this photo of his street sign.

FROM JACQUELIN SINGH (Faculty)

Jacquelin Singh, 1969

Dear All,

Once I read the list of AIS/AES alumni attending (or seriously thinking of attending) the West Coast Reunion in Tacoma, a whole galaxy of familiar teenage faces emerged. I wanted to be at the reunion too! I wanted to be there in my 35-year-old avatar, the one those teenagers would recognize.

The imagination, alas, loses out to reality. So the next best thing to being there is for me to say "hi!" to each and every one of you through this missive.

FROM DAVID WELCH (Class of 1966)
posted 25 May 2013

The AISAES Alumni Network on Facebook has brought back pleasant memories and renewed friendships for many of us who went to school in New Delhi. I've enjoyed the many pictures that have been posted and thought I'd share one that's a little different and the story behind it.

Just about a month ago I reconnected with former classmate and friend John Blee (Class of 1966) on Facebook for the first time since high school! We exchanged emails and some memories of our time at AIS. At one point John talked about fondly remembering an excursion he and I made one afternoon to explore Old Delhi and Jama Masjid. He asked if I remembered photographing a young girl with hauntingly sad but beautiful eyes while at the mosque.

I was surprised he remembered me taking the photograph and told him I still had the picture hanging at home. Printing the picture was a project we meant to complete while at AIS. My senior year got cut short and I wasn't able to do it until I returned to California. Our long forgotten school project has been completed by sending John a copy after 48 years and now sharing the picture with all of you from AISAES Alumni Network on Facebook (and also the alumni website!) John and I hope it helps in a small way bring to mind many of your own wonderful experiences in India.

Lunch with Maria Sanchez and Mary Williamson

(Class of 1983) visit Arlington National Cemetery on 3 January 2013

After corresponding for the past six years, AIS/AES alumni met for the first time! "It was as though Mary and I had known each other forever!" says Maria Sanchez. "We talked and ate lunch at Zaika Indian Restaurant in Clarendon, Virginia, and then watched the Changing of the Guard at Arlington National Cemetery. The last time I went there was when I was 17 years old. It was nice to view the cemetery from an adult prospective."
