From the yearly archives: 2009

A reminder to everyone that Homecoming is on October 24th, 2009. The game against Fordham begins at 1PM.

On Friday night, we invite attendees of the Marquis Founders dinner to a pre-reception at the House beginning at 5PM. Our alumni can then proceed to the dinner together.

Later Friday night, because we are on probation and cannot have social events on campus with alcohol, we are going to Mothers Bar and Grill on the circle in downtown Easton. We encourage alumni to stop by the House before heading down. The undergraduates will provide transportation for any alumni who require it.

On Saturday, we will be serving breakfast in the House and there will be tailgating on March Field prior to the game. The annual brothers meeting will be at noon in the living room this year. We will again have a tent up in case of inclement weather and a BBQ for food throughout the grill.

Our own Tom Neff ’59 was recently featured in a Wall Street Journal article on Spencer Stuart’s role as a CEO recruiter.

As for AIG’s CEO assignment, Spencer Stuart was chosen because the recruiters “were already up to speed,” says someone close to the situation.Thomas J. Neff, Spencer Stuart’s 71-year-old U.S. chairman and top CEO recruiter, is a pivotal player. Mr. Neff, who joined the firm in 1976, has handled more than 150 CEO and more than 350 board searches, including the appointments of Boeing Co. CEO Jim McNerney and Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack.

Mr. Neff also helped recruit Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to be president of the New York Federal Reserve in 2003.

Brother Schimmel ’09 recently asked Lafayette’s archivist to scan in historical DKE photos as well as a high resolution image of our chapter crest. You can view the photo gallery here or via the navigation bar to the right.

There are images of the original Rho News, our old house burning, our current house under construction on March field, the Guernica behind the bar paneling, and many other historic images.

Here’s a little flavor. For more, go to the gallery.
