New York and Boston receptions

On Thursday, 13 April 2023, the Master, Baroness Amos, accompanied by Rebecca Baxter, Interim Director of Development and Harriet Bayly, Deputy Director of Development, hosted a reception for Old Members and friends at The Campbell Bar, New York.

This was followed, on Saturday, 15 April 2023, by a similar reception at The Somerset Club in Boston; we are very grateful to Bruns Grayson (1974, PPE) for supporting this special occasion.

Dr Jen Thum (2010, Oriental Studies), Associate Director of Academic Engagement & Campus Partnerships and Research Curator at the Harvard Art Museums, and Dr James Grice (2004, Engineering), Senior Staff Engineer at EMCORE Corporation commented: “It was so wonderful to meet Valerie in person and connect with many Old Members who live and work so close to us! We had no idea the Univ community in our area was so large, cutting across several generations. Among other topics, there was impassioned talk about the importance of the Humanities, even among Old Members who studied science subjects. We both felt that we could have kept talking with everyone for far longer — and we hope that Univ will host more opportunities for us to gather in New England in the future!”
