After graduation in Delhi in 1974, I attended art schools in London, Minneapolis and the San Francisco Bay Area. I received my BFA in sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute, where I met my husband Sheldon Brown.
I returned to India only once for 6 months in 1976 to study sitar and weaving in West Bengal. Later that year I settled in the Berkeley/Oakland area, where I lived for 17 years. Read more from Phoebe.
More from Phoebe: "Mr. Takala was the reason I finally understood math. Sweet man,funny too!" writes Phoebe Bradley. Phoebe and Chuck Wells, both AIS class of 1974, send us this obituary of their fondly remembered math teacher, Mr. Reino (Ray) Takala.

I was at the reunion being as it was just down country in Virginia, this year I brought my wife of two years (I thought it would be interesting for her to see the fascinating people that make up our group). Met with Deepak and Raoul (my best buddies in Delhi)... I was in Delhi from 1966 to 1971 (didn't graduate from AIS).
I work for the U.S. Government, close to retirement thank GOD! My wife is already retired and tapping her foot impatiently.. ;) Have lived in the DC are since 1984. I work in the IT systems/web development/graphics/imaging area. Jack-of-all-trades, really.
I had a great time at the reunion, didn't see you, Mary, but love the pictures. Congrats on your class nomination! David

Dear Mary, I am Tim Brown’s sister. Thank you for all the fun photos of the reunion. We had taken our kids to Italy on the weekend of the reunion and thus did not attend.
I was delighted to see Rekha’s picture and will get back in touch with her. I have three kids, ages 18, almost 16, and 11. My husband and I have lived in Baltimore for ten years, the longest either of us has lived anywhere. I teach art history at the VA nursing home in Baltimore. Thanks again, Nancy

Steve Cowper firstname.lastname@example.org
The class of 1974 and those lazy days shooting hoops and hanging out in New Delhi seems vaguely familiar and definitely from another lifetime ago. I remember good times but as I get closer to 50 if I can remember anything that long ago it is a good day.
After Delhi we went to Alexandria Virginia where I went into complete cultural shock because I had to deal with a public high school and 400 classmates. It was an interesting time for me and also very lucky for me that John Hoefling & others from the Delhi days were around to keep my perspective in check.

Aloka Dalal email@example.com
I just recently completed my medical training, a la Patch Adams... and with Internship completed I just got the license in hand. I am a breed of "Matured" students and a very rare creature according to Indian standards. So far, I wish to remain a simple GP (general practioner) bringing back the house calls and the little black bag. Nothing special, just back to basics. I am really excited to meet you all, since I was always on the wrong continent during the scheduled reunions in the past, will be wonderful to catch up those I have met for over 30 years! Thanks for having the drive and intiative to keep this going...All the best, Aloka
Gail Deakin Teuscher firstname.lastname@example.org
It was such a nice surprise to get a call from Mary Williamson saying she was looking for 1974 AIS alumni. Mary was able to locate me thanks to Roni Nagaich’s information regarding my dad. She proceeded to tell me about the upcoming class reunion in July 2007 in Philadelphia. I am very excited about it and look forward to seeing those of you who can make it. Seeing the familiar names on the list of classmates from the ’74 Encore!!! newsletter brought many memories and a big smile to my face. Read more from Gail

Alan Egler firstname.lastname@example.org
Regretably, neither of my sisters, nor I will be able to attend the reunion next weekend. We are the Egler's. I'm Alan '74, my sisters Karen '72 and Alice '76 only spent 1969 and 1970 at AIS in New Delhi after spending 2 years in Calcutta. (Say hi to Mary Flanagan Novak for me....she's done a great job tracking down and communicating with all of our classmates from AISC in Calcuttta). My sisters and I are all married with our families; I settled in NJ, Karen is in Brentwood TN, and Alice is in Holis, NH. Read more from Alan
Linda Finlay email@example.com
I, too, am sorry to have missed the reunion. I was under work pressure and, living in England, it was a little far to come. (Yes, I know, bad excuse as several of you made it from India!). All I can say is that I’ll try and make the next one – even better if it is just our class.
It seems a potted biography is called for, so here goes…
I’ve been living in England since ’75. I first trained as an occupational therapist and then I became an academic psychologist. Since getting my PhD, I’ve worked as a freelance Academic Consultant writing and teaching around the country and, sometimes, abroad. (My early drama training has helped enormously with my public speaking!). For any of you who may be interested, my speciality field is using qualitative research methods to research the lived experience of disability.
On the domestic front, I’m married to Mel. He has six grown-up sons who are now producing children. So, although I’ve never been a mother, I have the pleasure of being a grandmother! We live in a house in Scarborough (NorthYorkshire) with beautiful views across the North Sea.
In proper Indian fashion we have ‘open house’. We would be honoured to have any of you come to stay if you’re in England. Namaste Linda

My brother Jay and sister Mary are Class of 1973 and 1976, respectively. My father was re-assigned from the embassy to Military Ocean Terminal Bayonne, New Jersey, in May 1966, and we spent the next four year (grades 5 through 8 for me) at St. Henry School in Bayonne, New Jersey. I had to overcome culture shock at first, but I eventually won a partial tuition scholarship to high school. My father decided to join the U.S. Civil Service and move to Pennsylvania where I attended Camp Hill High School. Read more from Charlotte
Deb Heggie firstname.lastname@example.org
My family lived in New Delhi in 1967 and 1968 (5th and 6th grades) following stays in Sri Lanka and Pakistan. We returned to the SF Bay Area and remained there since my father left the Asia Foundation for the World Affairs Council. I graduated from UC Davis and then attended graduate school in Southern California where I met my husband. I obtained a Ph.D. in clinical psychology in 1986 and moved to Connecticut right after graduation. Read more from Deb.
John Hoefling email@example.com
Unfortunately I only got to spend two years in Delhi. Short as it was it definitely changed my life. After graduating from Frankfurt American High School in Germany I went to George Washington University, a natural fit as DC is the only American city I really know. Saw a lot of Eric Marguis and Steve Cowper in those us days. In 1978 Steve and I headed off to Saudi Arabia... Read more from John.
I have two sons ages 27 and 16. I run a successful child care business in Lakeridge, Virginia. I'm divorced. Happy with my life. Please feel free to contact me at V. Hjort; 1982 Brooke Farm Court; Woodbridge, VA 22192 or call me at 703-490-0917.

I attended AIS from 1969 through 1973 (8th through 10th grades). I’ve stayed in touch with Linda Finlay, and we’ve exchanged visits between New York City and England over the decades.

Kiran Mehta KMehta@kennedycovington.com
It was wonderful to see so many classmates at the 2005 reunion, and wonderful also to read to read notes from so many others posted at the website. Class secretary, Mary Flanagan Novak, is doing a great job drumming up business! Here goes for my life saga (to date):
Following graduation I entered Cornell University, and ran into Malcolm Wilson on just about our first day as Freshmen. A blast from the past, since I had not seen him since about the 8th grade. Spent four cold but very rewarding years at Cornell and was married to a wonderful girl named Constance (we're still married, actually) during the summer between my Junior and Senior years. (That would be 1977). Read more from Kiran.
Lee Moore aisalum@AndreaAndLee.org
For me, AIS was part of a very positive transformation in my life. When I arrived at AIS in the Fall of my 7th grade I was a pretty shy person. The openness and trust of AIS was wonderful.
The teachers and the way that we related to them was great. I remember that one year the teachers put on two Halloween parties – one for the middle school and one for the high school. I remember expressing interest in meteorology to Mr. Strong and then some months later some instruments arrived as well as a “chicken coop” and I became a school “weatherman”. I also remember the many musical projects Mr. Adams energetically produced. Read more from Lee.
Haruko Tsuruta Morimoto HMorimoto@aol.com
Haruko, right, and her sister Chikako met with fellow AIS alum Seiichi Sugiyama, class of 1974, for dinner in Tokyo August 26.
It was so nice to see all the photos from the AIS-AES Reunion, and read your mini bios. I am grateful to all of you for making this possible, especially Mary Flanagan Novak for taking up the job as class secretary. I am currently living in Tokyo with my family.
I attended AIS from 1969-1971 with my sister Chikako Tsuruta (Class of 1972).
Chikako and her family live next door, but since we are both so busy, we communicate through e-mail like everyone else. Read more from Haruko
Meg Murphy email@example.com
The best years of my life were those growing up in India from 1965 to 1973, five years in New Delhi as a day student at AIS and three years as a border while Mother and Dad were living in Bombay.
Returned to the U.S. in 1973 convulsed with culture shock. Finished twelfth grade pretending I had moved from Indianapolis because India was akin to coming from the moon! Graduated Boston College, B.A. Eastern Philosophy 1974 and philosophized my way to my first job working at Harvard University for President Bok. After a couple of years I was promoted to the Development Office and directed the Acknowledgements Program for him during the 350th Harvard Campaign. Worn out by the severe winters and endless grey skies I moved to LA in 1988. Read more from Meg.
Ann Pearson firstname.lastname@example.org
I was at AIS in New Delhi from 1969 - 1972, father posted with the Canadian High Commission. My stay in India was to have a huge impact on me as, after finishing highschool in Canada (and a year off travelling in Europe, working in Ottawa) I studied religion in university, focusing on Indian religions. I took another year off school and went back to India for 10 months, mostly travelling around the whole country, but basing myself in Pune. Read more from Ann

Arne Rosa firstname.lastname@example.org
Just wanted to furnish a little background since graduating from the International School in Manila,Philippines 1974. I first attended a small Quaker college in North Carolina named Guilford College. I broke away for six months to attempt attending the American University of Beirut, Lebanon but the civil war in 1976 put an end to that aspiration. I graduated from the Univ. of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in Heath Education, School of Public Health. Read more from Arne.
Anne Rosselot email@example.com
I guess I'll come in from the cold. My oldest daughter is the age I was when I was at AIS -- seems like a very long time ago. Anyway, put me down as "found". After AIS I graduated from the American University, then U.Md. Law School. I practiced law for a while in Washington DC and Frederick, MD; then moved with my husband, Thomas Hoxie, to Switzerland for a number of years. Read more from Anne.

I've enjoyed reading the class news from everyone. I'm sorry I didn't get to the reunion this summer. I was in San Francisco with my family attending my son's graduation from graduate school. What a great city. So, to bring you up to date on what I've been up to....
I started at AIS during the 8th grade and left spring quarter of my Junior year. I moved back to Akron Ohio for my senior year of high school. I attended Kent State University where I met my husband Howard. He and I have been married since 1976 and have two wonderful children; Matt (25) and Jacqui (22). Matt is living in the San Francisco Bay area and is working in the bio-tech industry. He loves it there. Jacqui is finishing up her last year at Kent State. Read more from Mitzi

Hello all!!! Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to all of you. Pretty busy right now, then gone again for a few weeks, so I'll give you the cliff notes. Hmmmm....
College at Stephen F. Austin in Texas.
Married in Shreveport, LA in 1980. Three wonderful children: Jena, Shawna, and Colt.(18 months apart!). Then left the marriage when the kids were all under 5 years old.
Moved to Seattle, WA to get away from deadbeat Dad and bad situation with him. Raised the kids on my own until 1998 when I married again.
Currently help my husband by managing the law office. Jena also works at the law office and goes to Graduate school hoping to become a Nurse Practitioner. Shawna graduated from Beauty School and currently works in the new "beauty" side of Victoria's Secret.

That's it in a nutshell! Am sending this to you
Mary, so please forward to Chris, Sunil, and whoever else. I don't get to
the computer on a regular basis, but if you are patient, I will always get
back to you. Thanks. Patti
Deepak Sen firstname.lastname@example.org
After graduating from School in '74, I attended Delhi University and did a Grad course in Commerce. Started working immediately afterward in a garments export company out of New Delhi, started off as a Mgt. Trainee and ended up as a Director of the company till it shut down due to the owners' family in-fighting in '95.
Took a sabbatical for a few months, started my own exports in non-garments items, and took over as the Governor/Director of two high schools in Delhi that my mother had been the educationist founder of, after her demise, in '96. Read more from Deepak

As you may remember we had a baby boy last August 4th but the big news is we are now expecting a little girl in September 2006. Yesterday we found out what we were going to be gifted with. This is it .... No more children, two will be the magic number. I have always wanted a family and it is happening quickly. Maciej is doing great (you may wonder where the name came from, it was my Polish name before being adopted) is doing great. It will be nice to have a boy and a girl. Every house should have one of each ..... help soften the old man. Read more from Paul

Namaste, I realized that it was finally time for a much belated bio write-up!
After leaving Turkey at the age of 4, we lived in the USA followed by Colombia (South America), followed by ~8 amazing years on the Indian sub-continent: Lahore, Pakistan; Dacca, Bangladesh; and then Delhi, India. In Delhi, Dad was with the Ford Foundation, and I was a freshman and sophomore at AIS 1970-1972. Read more from Deniz.

Here's a bit on my journey: After the family left India in '70, we lived in the family home in Granby, MA for a year, then my father's job with Asia Foundation took us to San Francisco where I eventually graduated from high school. (My father's job had taken him and my mother to Singapore from where they adopted two Korean girls, Hye-Jin and Kyung-hee -- both married and with kids now.) Read more from Jonathan.

Much belated but at last....I've been finally found!
You finally found me living in Denver, Colorado, where I have been a very visible and highly respected PR pro as the spokesperson for AAA Colorado for the last 8 1/2 years.
Prior to that I spent a total of 17 years in paradise on the island of Oahu going to school after graduation in 1974 and working in a variety of public relations and marketing jobs before moving back to the "mainland." Read more from Mary
