Next Reunion in 2006. Got news? Tap out a note to magazine@bates.edu! Bill Farrington Jr. is the new headmaster at Braintree (Mass.) High School. For the past 10 years, he has been principal of the Montville (Conn.) High School…. Charles Love has been teaching geology and anthropology for 30 years at Western Wyoming Community College. “I have conducted 16 years of research on the Wind River Range glaciers, measuring how quickly they are melting, four years of research on 13 separate sequential Pleistocene glacial outwash and morainal events, and, between all that, kept track of various aspects of Wyoming archaeology. I have spent a good portion of my Ôfree time’ researching the archaeology of Easter Island in the South Pacific. I have won grants to the tune of $145,000 to take students and other archaeologists to the island to excavate during the last two summers. We are trying to get a handle on how they moved those colossi by examining the road characteristics. We have two statue replicas on campus, one of nine tons and 13 feet high, and one of 5 tons and eight feet high. We are currently experimenting with moving them. (Moving the nine-ton statue upright was a topic of NOVA in 1988.)”… Son Kevin donated part of his liver to his father, Frank Rollins, last December. Frank recently retired after 37 years with the Department of Behavioral and Developmental Services for the State of Maine…. Alex Wood completed the 2002 Pan Mass Challenge, the two-day, 200-mile charity bicycle ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown, Mass., that supports the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, “without any mechanical or bio-mechanical breakdowns,” he reports. Alex says it’s a life-changing experience and hopes some classmates will join the ride next year; contact him for details at alexander.wood@pharma.novartis.com.
