Sorry that I am unable to attend the 50th. I'm sure it would have been (or perhaps was if you don't see this until it's over) a good time.

Unfortunately, work responsibilities have prevented my attendance.

Hope this finds you well. Perhaps I'll get to Ann Arbor one of these days and buy you a cup of coffee or something.

Dear Al,

It was a pleasure hearing from you. I am well and enjoying a productive retirement. As it happens I am scheduled to receive an award from my undergraduate alma mater, the University of Chicago, this weekend so I won't be able to make it. The event sounds great and if anyone writes up a description of how it went I'd love to read it.

I've stayed in contact with the SRC, as I was on the advisory committee for the joint degree in survey research program for a number of years.

Please give my regards to Reynolds Farley and anyone else from the 60s who is still around.

Ann E. Biddlecom
Just a quick note that I have to go on a work trip outside the US that same week and cannot come to the PSC reunion -- I just got confirmation a week ago. I am sorry to miss this!!!!

Karen F. Glaser
I am so sorry to be missing what sounds like a wonderful gala. Declan is running the Venice marathon that same weekend with his brother and sister and I have promised to go and support them. It is such a pity as I would love to see everyone again and hear all the latest news at the PSC.

Stanley Kent Smith
It sounds like it will be a memorable event. Unfortunately, we won't be able to make it. Please give me regards to the attendees from the "glory years" of 1972-76. Best wishes for a fantastic celebration.

Mary P. Arends-Kuenning
I am looking forward to it! The PSC was such an important part of my graduate formation.

Vanessa L. Fong
I'm so sorry my schedule probably won't allow me to join you. This sounds like a fabulous event, and I hope all of you have a wonderful celebration!

Deborah S. Carr
Looking forward to seeing everyone and spending my upcoming Academic Year in A2!

John Traphagan
Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend. I will be in Japan on those dates. It would be truly great to be there. I miss the PSC, U of M, and Ann Arbor a great deal. I've often thought it would be great to visit there again, although I'm sure it has changed.

Eddy Berry
I will not be able to attend, although I'm sure it will be fun and interesting. Congratulations on the success of the PSC and Best Wishes for another 50 years of excellence in science.

Nan Johnson
This is a great idea, and I am looking forward to the anniversary events!

John Ellis Anderson
I won't be able to make it to the reunion, but I'll be thinking about you all up there. I certainly appreciate the time I spent at the PSC, and everything I got out of the experience. I'm attaching a picture from a recent event which includes my wife Lynda (also a PSC alum) and our 2 daughters. Congratulations on your 50th anniversary and enjoy your celebration.

Sharon Ghuman
I wanted to touch base with you about the Reunion. I am soon joining the NYC Dept of Health to study the effect of the 9/11 disaster on rescue workers, residents in lower Manhattan etc. It is very exciting but between the travel and getting set up in the US (receiving sea shipment, moving into apartment, job paper work), it is far more hectic this month than I had expected.

Given this it is looking difficult for me to come to the Reunion. I am sorry about this. But once I settle in I do plan to visit Ann Arbor still as I want to see everybody. The weather may not be as nice as it is now - but at least they will not be English clouds. With all best wishes - and do enjoy the Reunion!

Jack Leroy Goodman
[To Ren Farley] I'll wear my [PSC] shirt if you wear yours. It will be great to see you and others. It's been a long time.

Barry James Edmonston
We have accepted an invitation to a wedding in Annapolis for that weekend. Too bad because I would have liked to go to Ann Arbor for this wonderful celebration.

Shubha Ghosh
I have meandered so far from econ and demography as a law professor that I feel like a fish out of water or just plain prodigal. But I would love to attend. Let me get my act together and register as soon as possible. It would be good to catch up.

Joseph Chamie
Unfortunately, prior to the announcement, I made other commitments. I'll be out on the west coast (Wash. & Calif.) at that time, participating in some workshops and making several presentations.

Karen Kulthau
I am so sad that I will not be able to come to the celebration. I was looking forward to it but I have a conflict.

Gordon S. Bonham
Thank you for the notice and the invitation. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend.

Rebecca L. Utz
I wish I could make it. I would love to come back to Ann Arbor, and would enjoy the program. However, travel budgets are tight this year, so I doubt I will be able to swing it. I really like the website you put together.

Susan Marie De Vos
It sounds wonderful, and the Pop Studies Center will always have a special place in my heart, but I cannot over-emphasize how difficult it is to travel these days, alas.

Megan Beckett
Regrettably, because of work, I have extensive work travel earlier in October and cannot extend time away from my children. I trust that you are well and I hope that PSC will post pictures from the reunion and updates of PSC alum.

Mohammad Ali Faour
I would have loved to attend and meet with old friends and colleagues, but I have other prior commitments. But I am sure your reunion will be successful and enjoyable to all attendees. Please send them all my best.

Neil G. Bennett
I look back fondly on my couple of years at the Pop Studies Center. Sorry I can't make it. Best to all.

Raymond Lewis Langsten
I would love to attend the 50th anniversary reunion. Unfortunately I have a very busy fall coming up, and won't be able to get away at all during the coming months. But I look forward to hearing about all the festivities.

Lois M. Verbrugge
I am so sad not to be at the PSC reunion, more than anyone can guess! But I booked a trip to Borneo before the reunion dates were chosen, and there's no option. I will greatly miss seeing so many friends and colleagues.

Maurice M. MacDonald
Thanks for organizing this event. We really appreciate the opportunity and understand the effort it involves.

Matthew D. Shapiro
Sorry that I will be out of town for this wonderful celebration.

Paul Cheung
I am very happy that this event is being organized. I am sorry that due to work commitments and travel, I can't attend.

Pamela Webster
Looking forward to it! :)

Betty Alberts
I am looking forward to seeing old friends.

Robin Barnes
The reunion sounds like a great idea and I regret not being there.

Kimberly D. Cartwright
I live in the Netherlands and it's too far to come.

Purvi Harendra Sevak
I would really like to attend! Thanks for organizing.

Roy C. Treadway
With regrets, I will not be able to come to the 50th anniversary of PSC. I was doing graduate studies in Demography and Human Ecology at the University of Michigan 50 years ago when the Population Studies Center was formed. I remember that time well.

Ross M. Stolzenberg
Congratulations on past, present and future success as a leader of world demographic studies.

Anna Maria Santiago
It would be wonderful to obtain contact information for PSC graduates via a listing of participants or directory.

Xian Liu
I look forward to this reunion.

Cameron D. Campbell
Sorry I will be unable to attend. My teaching schedule for the fall won't allow me much time for out of town trips.
