Welcome to the Yale Class of 1959 Website!

Yale '59 60th Reunion

Julia Foote wedding Jim Pender writes, “Please consider entering the following comments and this photograph in connection with Bill Ruddy, Tad Foote, Ted Greensfelder and Dave Driscoll, all of whom appear on the list of deceased classmates.

“I had the pleasure of living at Yale with the seven lifelong friends shown in this photo, taken in 1993 at Tad Foote’s daughter’s wedding. (L-R) Bill Ruddy, Alki Scopelitis, Mike Schumann, Tad Foote, Ted Greensfelder, Jim Pender and Dave Driscoll.

“This has been like a second family for all of us. Sadly, Ruddy, Foote, Greensfelder and Driscoll have gone on.”

“But time and change shall naught avail
To break the friendships formed at Yale.”
