John L. Hammond, Portland, Oregon, has been retired for twenty years, but his wife, Alice, has only recently retired, enabling them to experiment with "snowbirding." After thirty years of living through the Pacific Northwest's wet and gray winters, they spent January and February in southeast Arizona, near Tucson, and enjoyed the change greatly. They plan to go back again next year, possibly for three months. John and Alice were guests at the Portland reception that President Nugent attended. She brought them up to date on current developments on campus and gave a lively and interesting talk on the values of a liberal education such as Kenyon offers. John says, "It was good to be with such a goodly company of Kenyon folk, mostly young, of course. But there were a handful of older types, like us."
