Hopkins Grammar School
The Class of 1965
of the HGS class of 1965
took place on Friday June 11
and Saturday June 12, 2010. It was an extraordinary event, principally
because so many of our class returned, many for the first time in 45
years. Among the returnees who care were Paul Howe, who flew in from
Kazakhstan, Bill Coniff, from Boise, Idaho, Peter Nagel, from Kittery
Point, Maine, Bill Walik, from Seattle, Herb Stocking, Jeff Burt, and

Saturday, June 12
What followed for
'65 was a "Hot Stove"
roundtable discussion with George Grande, who spent his Sixth Form
year with us. George is a nationally know sportscaster, one of the
founding members of ESPN, and let us in a wonderfully articulate and
thought-provoking discussion of the sports world.
Then followed the dedication of
Thompson Hall – named for Mary Brewster Thompson, Principal of
Prospect Hill from 1939 to 1952. This impressive addition to the
campus was made possible, in part, by a donation from John Malone '59.
A portrait of Mr. Malone was unveiled at the dedication ceremony.
The day concluded
with a festive picnic “on the
Hill” (tented with table seating) with the New Haven Chamber Orchestra
performing and fireworks!

Our class banner, which once hung at our graduation and then at reunion
dinners in the gym, has been transformed into a large photo that now
hangs with dozens of others in the Heath Commons and was brought out for
our 45th and hung before center stage.
Nothing endures but change.
