Despite COVID-19, the Class of ’66 had an extraordinary reunion in October. As of press time, we’re setting a record for giving at a 55th reunion: $6.9 million—and still growing! For classmates who want to donate to our successful endeavor, log on to Although COVID-19 kept us from breaking a 55th reunion attendance record, we did have the largest number of participants at this year’s reunion luncheon: 47 classmates! These achievements were due to the extraordinary leadership of the reunion co-chairs, Marily Allen Howekamp and Phil Litts, and to our Class President, Michael McGinnis. Marily has spearheaded our fundraising efforts. Janet Wilson Greig lives in Palo Alto and is involved with nonprofits, working on behalf of the democracy in our nation. She also enjoys seeing her children and grandchildren. Still living and working in Oakland, architect Michael Murakami says he’s still designing “stuff” and enjoys visiting his and Nancy’s granddaughters in Zionsville, Indiana. Fully retired, David Howekamp has lived in Lafayette with Marily for 50 years. They enjoy being with their five grandchildren. Ever the optimists, they’ve been loyal season ticket holders and are confident that the Rose Bowl is just around the corner. Dee Hawk Pearce has lived in Orinda for 50 years with her husband, Russ. She’s a retired executive from Kaiser Permanente and continues to mentor Cal undergrads as an advisor at Chi Omega. After careers in journalism and public affairs, Steve Swatt has written four books, primarily about California political history. Liz Parrish Lindsey lives in the Monterey Peninsula and is a realtor with Sotheby’s International Realty.

Class Secretary: Mary Beth Mulvey Buck, 212 East 63rd St, New York, NY 10065,
