The book that we are going to
be presenting to the School
when we visit them in a few weeks is done. It's got a range
of fascinating stories and lots
of photos of the good old days. We could not have done this without the help of Celia Murphy ('79) and, of course, without the photos from Taka Yamanouchi
('70) and Tim Brown ('70), who thoroughly documented our lives at the time.
For those of you who submitted photos with your stories, we were not able to use all of them due to pixilation problems, so we apologize for that. The book is published by Mixbook. (You will have to create an account with MixBook) While it is expensive on its own without a 50% sale, it's more reachable if you go on the site daily and wait for a 50% discount at the top band of the site. If you order as a group of 10, the price goes down even further. You can view/order the book with this link. Otherwise, please click here if you'd like just the stories. We
hope you will enjoy this labor of love!

BIG Exciting NEWS!

Please help us welcome Claire Saint-Rossy (Class
of 1975) as our new Board Treasurer. Claire attend-
ed AIS from January 1965 through June 1968, along
with two older sisters and a younger brother, dur-
ing the period when their father worked with the United Nations - UNESCO took their family to New Delhi. "I am amazed when recalling the rich exposure to Indian religious and cultural sites that I got through the myriad field trips planned for us by AIS's elementary school teachers - what great teachers they were."
Claire moved to metro DC before the 2015 reunion, which made it possible for her to reconnect with a handful of old friends who attended. Now she is able to visit with close friends with some reg-
ularity. We are lucky to have her on our board and feel confident
that our fiduciary responsibility to the association will be fulfilled. Welcome aboard, Claire!

I wanted to share that my eldest son and eldest daughter were recently invited to India for a week to attend a wedding and see
the Taj Mahal. My son's roommate during his freshman year at
Emory University is from New Delhi; and they have always main-
tained a good, close friendship. My two eldest had never been to
India before, and they were excited to go to New Delhi with the
hopes of also touring AES to see where their mother went to school. (Unfortunately, they were only able to drive by the school and by
my childhood home and neighborhood in Chanakyapuri.) They
were, however, successful visiting the Taj Mahal.

"It was an absolute honour and pleasure to meet our alum Martin Gray, acclaimed National Geographic photographer and anthro-
pologist who has spent the last 35 years on an amazing pilgrimage: visiting 800 sacred sites around the world. His love for photography began here at AES (then AIS) when he was in 7th Grade, 1966. As part of the photography club, he took photos of the campus and contributed to the school yearbook! Out of the 165 countries that he has travelled to he says "India is the best, its magical." Our HS Art students loved his stories and his energy!" - from The American Embassy School

It's time to update our alumni files...specifically, the class rosters
and your contact information!
Please check on the link below to see if you're listed in your class roster as FOUND or LOOKING FOR.
If you are listed under "Looking For," it means we don't have your contact information in our offline database or you were moved back under that list because the address we have on you is no longer

Convenient Ways to Donate

The theme for the AIS/AES Alumni Associations 2015 Reunion, India Lives in All
of Us
, captured the spirit of alumni who lived at one time
in New Delhi and attended the American Embassy School (formerly the American International School). Shortly after the success of the 2015 Reunion and the admiration of
its theme lingered on, the Board voted unanimously to adopt the theme as the association motto.
