  1. I attended Northampton School for Girls from 1960-65. I know there is group of us dinosaurs out there, and we need more feedback from everyone in those years. It’s great to know what recent grads are doing, but we need everyone, myself included,
    to start adding to the alumni news.

    1. Dear Maunie, you and all our other 1965 classmates should have attended our 50th reunion this last weekend. There were only 2 of us: Phyllis Lockwood and I! By contrast there were at least 25 guys from Williston ’65. A problem for keeping our class in touch is the illness of Polly Eskenazy, class secretary. Greetings to all! Mary

  2. I worked at the academy for the summer of 1970 ,under supervision of an alumni Dr .Carter Marshell of Mount Sinai hospital ! I coordinated a project with students from Benjamin High school in East Harlem at your beautiful campus ! Wondering if you would know the status of information on Dr.Marshall ? Please advise thank you Jose Encarnacion

    1. Jose, I’m sorry to let you know that Dr. Marshall died in 2005. A copy of his obituary is below:

      “CARTER LEE MARSHALL, MD, MPH Born March 31, 1936 in New Haven, CT, the son of Dr. Carter L. and Grace Marshall, died February 18, 2005, aged 68, in Tucson AZ where he has lived since 1990. Dr. Marshall graduated from Harvard College, magna cum laude in 1958, from Yale Medical School in 1962, and received his MPH from the Yale School of Public Health in 1964. He was the valedictorian of the class of 1954 at Williston Academy in Easthampton, MA. After serving in the US Army in Okinawa in1965-67, he became an Assistant Professor at the University of Kansas School of Medicine from1967-69. He then joined the faculty of the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine as Associate Professor and Professor of Community Medicine. He was Associate Dean at Mt. Sinai from 1969-76, and for two years, the University Dean for Health Affairs of CUNY. In 1976-77 he helped set up a new, predominately black, medical school at Morehouse College in Atlanta. He joined the faculty of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1977 as Professor of Medicine and Director of the Office of Primary Health Care Education, predecessor of the present Department of Family Medicine. He served as Director of Medical Education at UMDNJ from 1984 to 1989. He moved to Tucson in 1990, where he was employed by Health Services Advisory Group, Arizona’s Medicare Quality Improvement Organization, becoming the Vice President of Clinical Quality Assessment. In this position he worked in conjunction with 73 Arizona hospitals to improve quality of care, until his death from pancreatic cancer in 2005. He was the author with David Pearson of Dynamics of Health and Disease, an introductory text for allied health workers, and contributed more than 70 articles to the medical literature, most recently dealing with quality assessment issues. He was Clinical Research Professor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Arizona and Adjunct Professor at the School of Health Administration and Policy at Arizona State University. Dr. Marshall leaves his wife, Norma Davenport, and four children, Wende E. Marshall of Charlottesville, VA, Holly L. Marshall of Phoenix, AZ, Katharine Iskrant of Vancouver, WA, and Carter L. Marshall III of Boulder, CO. He is also survived by his only cousin, Grace Moses, her husband, DeMaurice Moses, MD, of Tacoma, WA, and their family. Dr. Marshall served on the Board of Trustees of Williston Academy for several years, and more recently, on the Board of Directors of the El Rio Neighborhood Health Center and as President of the Homeowners Association of Finisterra. Photography, Greek history, military history, American history and Arizona Wildcats basketball were a few of his many interests.
