Yes! Attending Reunion
Residing In Tucson, AZ USA
Occupation Retired Attorney

After college in Palo Alto, Calif and law school in San Francisco, I practiced law for over 35 years in Boston, Washington DC, NYC and Tucson in the areas of consumer protection, civil rights, civil litigation, trusts, wills, estate and elder law. In New York City, I did construction litigation in a law firm located in the Empire State Building.

In the early 90's, I was the General Counsel (chief lawyer) of the NYC Health Department during NYC's multi-drug resistant TB and AIDS crisis. Afterwards, I obtained a Masters in Public Health (MPH) degree.

President Bill Clinton was in the 1963 Boy's Nation class when we met President John Kennedy in the White House Rose Garden in July 1963. At 1963 Boys Nation events, we frequently stood next to each other because Bill Clinton was from Arkansas and I was from Arizona.

Fortunately, I also attended 1993 and 1998 President Clinton sponsored Boys' Nation Class of '63 White House Reunions. Even better, during the 1993 White House Reunion, I got to meet and chat briefly Hillary Clinton.

In 1995, President Clinton invited me and several of my public health colleagues to the Oval Office to discuss Medicaid and to listen to his Saturday morning radio address.

In 1997, I returned home to Tucson and practiced law in Tucson until I retired in 2004.

Since 2004, three mornings a week, I have been doing cranio sacral and shiatsu subtle massage therapy on hospice patients. Working with hospice patients and their families is very rewarding and very different from left brain legal work.

No children, this lifetime.

What a pleasure to have known and shared life with fun loving Clyde Williams.  Also, Clyde was a great athlete who inspired all of us on the football team.  That is why we fellow teamates  voted him the " most valuable player."  May he rest in peace.
