As a classmate of Anson Dorrance, I suppose I could have imagined him pursing a career in sports. The committee recalls Anson as the most athletic member of the villa class of 1969, which — to be fair — is faint praise.

Her elegant web site was brought to our attention during a recent (and lengthy) e-mail thread .. it includes rave reviews from the New York Times and elsewhere.
And for grins, here’s a very brief youtube video of Michelle.
