- Grad year: 1966
The 1966 Chemical Engineering class held its 50th anniversary reunion on September 21st to 23rd. The class’ seventh reunion since graduating was based at the Granville Island Hotel; activities included a beer night for the grads, a dinner for the spouses, lunch on campus, dinner at the hotel and breakfast at the ’Off The Tracks Bistro’ on the Island. Eighteen of the twenty one remaining grads and their spouses attended the reunion. The photo was taken during the lunch at the new Engineering Students Centre, a recommended venue for reunions, and includes Dr. Englezos, Chemical and Biological Engineering Department Head, and retired Chemical Engineering professors Dr. Epstein, Dr. Branion and Dr. Wilkinson (all of whom still have an office on campus). Sadly missing from the photo, as they are no longer with us, are Ron Nicholson, Morris Mennell and Marlene Gosling. Marlene, the only female among the nearly 1,000 engineering students in 1966, passed away in June, 2016.
