10 a.m. - Medical Careers: Some Different Choices
Happy Manstein '72 has been a plastic surgeon for the past 27 years in Philadelphia. Although a large part of his private practice has focused on area of aesthetic and cosmetic surgery, he has served as a medical missionary in underserved countries such as Vietnam and Eritrea and has recently completed two tours in earthquake ravaged Haiti. Dick Aronson '69, now the health professions advisor and assistant dean of students at Amherst, is a pediatrician whose career in public health has involved a series of collaborative and community-based efforts to address the social and economic injustice that is at the root of health inequality in the U.S. and the world.  Together they will discuss what led them to use their medical training in nontraditional ways. Presented by the Class of 1972.

Dave Ray '72, Steve Stanne '72 and Dave Gordon '73 were all part of the band Sawdust while at Amherst, playing faintly political acoustic folk-rock. All three have continued to be musically active, and in fact Steve's current musical group, Betty and the Baby Boomers, has released several CDs and Dave Ray played back-up on the first one. They have had periodic reunions and concerts over the past 40 years, the most recent being last year at a restaurant in Lee, Mass.  Any and all acoustic musicians and singers are invited to join in a jam session of eclectic music, from jazz to string band to classic folk-rock. Presented by the Class of 1972.

2:30 p.m. - From Malcolm to Barack
We learned of our acceptance to the college the month that Dr. King was shot. We were assigned the autobiographies of Ben Franklin and Malcolm X for orientation--our initial exposure to the liberal arts. The sit-in at Westover all but overshadowed our Commencement. What impact has our student activism had on our public careers since? Nick Bromell '72, professor of American Studies at the University of Massachusetts; Rick Swartz '72, president of Strategic Solutions Washington, a public interest consultancy; Andrea Wise '11; and Wayne Wormley '72, dean of the Division of Business and Industry at Community College of Philadelphia, will join in a discussion moderated by Sandy Rosenberg '72, a member of the Maryland House of Delegates. Presented by the Class of 1972.

3:30 p.m. - Who's Policing Wall Street? Or Not?
Main Street has been hollering for well-paid Wall Street heads to roll as retribution for our recent economic collapse. Who's listening? What have they done? What else can or should be done? A panel moderated by Assistant U.S. Attorney Joe Hartzler '72 (Central District of Illinois) and consisting of Thomas Dumm, the William H. Hastie '25 Professor of Political Ethics at Amherst; U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald '82 (Northern District of Illinois); Oregon Circuit Court Judge and former U.S. Attorney Karin Immergut '82; New York State's First Deputy Attorney General Harlan Levy '77; and Lee Richards '72, private attorney in a Wall Street law firm, will explore the adequacy of the American justice system to investigate, prosecute and deter complex financial misconduct.
