Classic Bulger: A regular
visitor to Amherst, PRESIDENT
WILLIAM BULGER is nowhere more at home than at events relating to his
beloved classics [Latin Rocks, Summer 1999]. In February he
lectured on Freedom and Education in the Classical World,
at the Campus Center. In December, at the University Club, he presented
the 1999 William H. Bulger Classics awards to Thao Tran 01, shown

Top of HIS class: BOB GOODHUE 70, hanging with undergrads [Bobs Excellent Adventure, Winter 1998] during his tenure as president of the UMass Alumni Association, is now university president William Bulgers special assistant for alumni affairs. I look forward to working to make 300,000 alumni system-wide feel prouder than ever to display their diplomas, Goodhue says.
