IN LOVING MEMORY
posted 6 April 2018

If you passed through New Delhi or AIS in the 1960's or 1970's you know that Alfie and Ernie Campbell were the
heart and soul of the community. Their success in creating community is a major reason why so many of us cherish strong and positive memories of India and AIS. Students gathered at their home most Sunday evenings. The high school October camp at Hathni Kund is legendary. Families joined one another for Kashmir togetherness at the family summer camp. These wonderful shared experiences built community and memories for a lifetime and beyond and were the direct result of Alfie and Ernie's loving outreach to those
around them, at every level.

Please take a moment to click on this link to read the Campbell Family Life Remembrance of Alfie, who brought so much to our community and in gratitude
for a life well lived.
- from Jennifer MacPherson Abidari (Class of 1973)
