April 17, 1943 Ithaca NY Associate Professor of Music Emerita Single Belle Sherman Boynton Junior High Boynton Junior High Greetings Dear Classmates from Ithaca, N.Y. I retired from West Virginia University in 2005 after twenty six years and headed home. The house I grew up in was still in the family so I settled in "for a long winter's nap." I have awakened to begin retirement by becoming an outside instructor at Cornell and forming a delightful chamber music group called Fingerlakes Flutes. Previous to my employment at WVU I was a member of the Mobile Symphony Orchestra and a member of Music in Maine, a project funded during the Johnson administration to introduce chamber music to school children. The wind quintet I played in performed over two hundred concerts a year. As we approach our 50th high school reunion I am reminded once again of the debt of gratitude I owe to all the faculty of Ithaca High School and most especially to Mr.Frank Battisti, Mr. Vito Mason and Miss S.Carolyn Marsh for their devotion to my musical education. I like to think I've done them proud.

July 22, 1943 McLean VA Retired Married 2 Fall Creek and Belle Sherman Boynton Boynton While I was at Cornell I sang with the Cornell Glee Club. During my senior year in 1966, the Glee club was invited to tour Asia by the State Department and everyone who participated took a semester's leave of absence. Of the 40 singers, eight were IHS alumni and graduates of Vito Mason's choirs: Chris and George Anagnost, Tom Cullen, Art Neal, Adam Perl, Mel Richards, John Short and myself. I knew nothing about Asia at the time, but the trip sparked an interest and attachment that has remained with me.

When I graduated in 1967 with little idea of what to do next, Mrs Hill of the Ithaca Draftboard called me in to tell me that unless I went to graduate school or joined the Peace Corps she would have to draft me. For reasons that are still not entirely clear I chose to enlist in the Army and ended up in Vietnam as an Intelligence Officer in 1969 and 1970.

Following my military commitment, I was discharged from the Army in Saigon and spent the following year wandering South and Southeast Asia, a wonderfully free time. I even ran into Susan Blair Jenny at a street market in Kathmandu, Nepal.

When I returned to the US, I studied Chinese at Cornell and received a Masters in Southeast Asian Studies from American University in Washington (Vito Mason was choral director at American during this time and I sang with his choir for the time I was there). I worked at the Library of Congress for 12 years as a Southeast Asia specialist, and then moved to the Defense Department where I worked on the issue of resolving the cases of the missing from the Vietnam War for 20 years before retiring in 2009.

In 1976 I married Gay Gibson, a Theatre PhD from Cornell who now teaches at Georgetown. We have two children, born in the mid-80s: a son, Gibson who is a PhD candidate in Theatre History at the University of Washington in Seattle, and a daughter, Anna who is a 3rd year law student at George Washington University in Washington. Gibson married in 2009, and my daughter-in-law Jessica is also a student at the University of Washington, working on a Masters in Museum Studies.

I still sing whenever I can. Most recently, I did a solo all-Sondheim program as part of a local recital series and had a chance to sing Beethoven's Ninth with the Choral Arts Society of Washington for Christopf Eschenbach's debut with the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center.

I deeply appreciate the dedication of all who have worked so hard to put this 50-year reunion together, and am especially grateful to George and Loulie for making me promise to provide this profile.

June 06, 1944 Brooktondale NY Retired/but still working Married 2 Caroline One Room School Newark Valley and Boynton IHS I was married in June 1962-two children Tery and Robin-divorced in 1967. After my divorce, I went to work as a waitress at the Old Sheraton Inn. It was there I met my husband Bruce. In June, we will have been married 39 years. We have 8 Grandchildren, 6 GreatGrandchildren and 2 on the way. Fortunately, we are able to spend time with 4 of our Great Grandchildren because they just moved in next door.
Except for a few years early on in our marriage, Bruce and I have worked together. We previously ran a small tool and appliance repair business and currently own and operate a Small Job contracting business as well as an Insurance Agency with two separate offices. I am legally retired, however,I still work most every day. We were EMT's for several years as well as volunteer firefighters-due to all the continued education required for EMT's and Insurance Licenses, we gave up our EMT certification. We are still volunteer firefighters.
Our son, Terry, was in the Navy and served both in the Gulf War and Iraq. During the Gulf War, a friend and I started the Yellow Ribbon Campaign in the Town of Caroline-at about the same time, another friend started the "Faith Hope Tree". I was a blue spruce tree in front of their home which was decorated with yellow bows, a huge sign in front and pictures of friends and family in the Military. We spent hours making huge Yellow Bows-these bows were mailed all over the world. Several of us making the bows had kids in the military-some overseas-others were there just because they cared. The "Faith Hope Tree" not only helped the military during the Gulf war-it helped the Veterans from the other wars as well-several of the Vietnam Veterans expressed their thanks because the tree honored them as well-Our Efforts got us recognized on the cover of Time and Life magazines as well as TV.
As a result of the of the Faith Hope Tree, I became friends with a lot of special people. One lady from that friendship worked with me on Geneological Research. We even wrote a book about the "Snyder Hill Cemetery" on Snyder Hill Road outside of Ithaca.
Our son Terry and his wife Laura currently live in Fort Plain, New York. Our daughter Robin and her husband Bob purchased a home next door to us.
Bruce and I live in the home where I grew up. We are both animal lovers and currently have 4 horses and 7 dogs. We have 2 Percherons, a Spotted Draft and a Quarter Horse-two of our dogs are Newfoundlands, one is a Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees cross and the other 4 are Great Pyrenees. Except for one Newfie, all are rescues. I am currently a volunteer with National Great Pyrenees Rescue.
