Mac Whiteman Reminisces About Fellow Jonathan Edwards Classmate George Stone
August 5, 2015 in Notes
Mac Whiteman (JE) writes: “You mentioned a group of us whose fathers were part of the NYU faculty. Also in that group was my dear friend George Stone, JE ’72. In the mid 60s, George and I lived in the Village on a small street near the Washington Monument called Washington Mews. The entire street was a group of townhouses owned by NYU. We met first as neighbors and later as classmates. Our senior year 1971-72 we lived with several other JEers in two small beach houses in East Haven. He and the others who lived there have remained good friends. … I read about a student in Memphis who was accepted at all eight Ivy League schools, but rejected all their offers in order to accept a full scholarship at Alabama. I think with the price of an Ivy education escalating out of control, you will see more and more good students taking similar routes in the future. … I like reading about my classmates, the few that I know and the many that I do not know, but as a group it is intriguing to me the many different paths our diverse class has taken.”
