Reunion 2000!

Albert HermalinIn May 2000, the Population Studies Center hosted a major Year 2000 reunion and retirement celebration for Al Hermalin. The event was held on May 12-13, 2000 in Ann Arbor. We hope that those of you who joined us had a wonderful experience returning to Ann Arbor with your colleagues who attended.

The last time PSC held a reunion was in 1986. At that time we had 125 Ph.D. alumni and the event was a great success. We now have 220 alumni and many other new colleagues and friends. Fourteen years was long enough to wait to have another big party. It was also a great opportunity to express our appreciation to Al Hermalin, who has made so many contributions to PSC, the University of Michigan, and the demographic community as a teacher, colleague, friend, PSC director, PAA president, and internationally distinguished scholar.
