March 20, 1944 Fairfax VA US Middle East Analyst Widowed 3
After graduating from Central, I attended Hamline University, majoring in Political Science but actually taking more language courses than Poli-Sci courses. Between my Sophomore and Junior years, I spent the summer in South America, mostly Colombia, on the SPAN program.   I was on the staff of the university’s newspaper, the Oracle, all four years at Hamline and was Editor-in-Chief in my Senior year. From Hamline I went on to two years’ graduate study at Princeton University, majoring in International Relations. I spent the summer between my two Princeton years in Rabat, Morocco, as an intern in the U.S. Agency for International Development.
After leaving Princeton in 1968, I joined the Peace Corps, and spent  two years in the Philippines, setting up and running the Provincial Development Staff in the office of the Governor of Aklan Province. Back in the U.S., I was on the campaign staff of the Republican candidate for Attorney General in the 1970 elections. Starting in January, 1971, I was a staff assistant for the Minnesota Senate Committee on Elections and Reapportionment.
In mid-1971 I joined the U.S. Department of State as a Foreign Service Officer (diplomat) and spent nearly 30 years in that profession, serving not only in Washington, DC, but also in U.S. embassies in Pakistan, Turkey, Colombia, Mali, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Bahrain. A misdiagnosed congenital heart ailment forced me into retirement in 1998, and then, a few months later, a mild heart attack led to an artificial heart valve and a lot of new energy. After a few short post-retirement jobs, in late 2005 I ended up back in the State Department in Washington, and worked on several jobs there until 2009, when I joined a private company called Pluribus International, through which I have been working until the present as a contractor (Middle East Analyst)  in the Department of Defense.
I met my future wife, Hadia, while I was on my first diplomatic assignment in Pakistan, and we were married in 1975. We have three sons – the oldest is a lawyer in Boston, working for a company in the health field; the second is a linguist in Washington, specializing in Central Asian and Middle East languages; and the youngest is a captain in the U.S. Army, now posted in Ft. Hood, Texas, after deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. After 32 years of marriage, my wife died of cancer five years ago, not quite 57 years old.

Jim Rosenbaum
October 12, 1944 Minnetonka MN U.S.District Judge (Ret.) Now doing mediation and arbitration with JAMS Married
     After Central, I (unsurprisingly) attended the University of Minnesota.  I rather quickly discovered my lame math skills would end my medical career, winding up with a degree in English and Theater.  (Much thanks to Ms. Malman and Ms. Corby.)

      On to law school, with a whole bunch of our Central classmates.  After law school I moved to Chicago, serving as a VISTA lawyer, and was in court virtually full-time for nearly three years.  After my VISTA service, I stayed with the same civil rights organization.  This was the best thing that ever happened to me.  I met, worked with and married Marilyn.  She has put up with me for 40 years.

      Back to Minnesota in 1972, private practice, and three beautiful daughters showed up (Alexandra, a singleton, and Victoria and Catherine, twins less than two years later - they are in the process of finishing a set of 7 grandchildren for us).
     I was appointed Minnesota's United States Attorny in 1981, and to the U.S. District Court in 1985.  I retired from the bench in 2010, after 25 years' service. Marilyn has been a Minnesota state judge since 1992, and is still serving.
     I am now a private practice mediator/arbitrator and enjoying it.  Marilyn and I are mad for our grandchildren and just enjoy being with them and each other.  

     I get up every morning and shave the luckiest guy I ever met.

Hello Classmates, I hope to see you all at the reunion, and will likey be flying in from Hawaii.
Just a brief bio.
After Graduation I received a football and wrestling scholership to Gustavus Adolphus College.
I was accepted into Vet School at the Univ. of Minn. in 1964 and after graduation in 1968 practiced in Minn., Wisc., Montana, and finially California, where I was introduced to fine wine and given my unusually keen sense of smell and a great curiosity, I started making wine as a hobby and winning many awards.
I started a very small winery in 1978 called Rosenblum Cellars After a lot of work and a lot of fun, the winery grew from 400 cases to 220,000 cases and we sold it to a large drinks company called Diageo in 2008.
I got married to Kathy O'shaughnessy in 1969 and we just celebrated our 43d aniverssary. we have 2 girls, Shauna, age 28 who is the winemaker at our new winery Called Rock Wall Wine Co. and has a Masters in fine arts. Kristen age 26 lives in Eugene Oregon and is working on Medical school.
I love to ski, fish, bike, play raquetball, and drink good wine and eat good food whenever I can.

November 04, 1944 Berkeley CA graphic designer Divorced 1 Highland Jr. High / Mattocks
After U of M I moved to San Francisco, worked in an ad agency (just like the one in "Mad Men"), participated in the Summer of Love (on weekends), married Mark and had Jesse who's now 36, and became a graphic designer and artist. I'm now divorced and living in Berkeley with a man I met at my apartment building pool a few blocks from here when I went to UC Berkeley summer school in 1965. Sounds strange but it all makes sense. I missed our 50th but looking forward to seeing you at the 55th! Send Nancy a MessageSend Nancy a Message
David Rubenstein Minneapolis editor/writer 2 Groveland
I live in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis with my significant other and I’m still working. So far I’ve managed to dodge the big health issues and thanks to an alarming loss of body mass can do more pushups now than I could in high school. My s.o calls me a wiry little Jew. I’ve been a free-lance journalist/essayist/writer/ one way or another for most of my adult life. In the early 1970s I worked with the Honeywell Project (anti-Vietnam War), wrote and made films. Then I spent about a dozen years working mainly as a welder/iron worker and smith. It all made sense at the time. I made a lot of big objects that still exist. In 1984 I free-lanced from Israel and the West Bank and covered the Israeli elections for the Star-Tribune. Wrote a magazine article about diversity in Chicago law firms in 1991, and happened to interview and write a sidebar about a law firm summer associate, a guy named Barack Obama. I've received a few journalism awards, including one from the International Association of Firefighters, the union for the U.S. and Canada. These days I share a contract editing job with my brother, a writer with whom I have worked one way or another for more than 40 years. Lately I’ve been trying to get back into “films,” now that film and processing are free. I write this from Oaxaca, Mexico, where I am with my significant other who, more adventurous than I, has a second life in Mexico, one that started in the 90s when she lived and worked on a ranch down in Palenque for several years. She is currently a teacher in the Phillips neighborhood of South Minneapolis at a public school a few blocks from where we live and mainly enjoy it a lot, even though Phillips does have something of a reputation. We live in an older house with a double lot and plenty of garden space. The neighborhood itself has numerous community gardens, more every year. Forty years ago this was an Indian neighborhood – it’s where AIM started -- but today our neighbors are mostly Somalis, African-Americans, Ecuadoreans and an increasing number of young “urban pioneers.” We still hear gun shots from time to time but as far as I know, no one around here has been shot by accident. During the growing season I spend as much time as I can about 50 miles north of the twin cities, in Anoka County, at the 100 year-old family farm of a good friend who is now a grower for many of the trendy local-style Minneapolis restaurants. He’s been doing his thing for 40 years and the world seems to have caught up with him. My ex-wife lives in St. Paul, and we have two daughters, both back in Minneapolis after seeing far more of the world than I have. Both graduated from Central, as did my parents. My daughters are lovely, hard working, sweet tempered, generous and all in all much nicer than me. I got lucky.

Steve Rubin Attorney Married Edgcumbe
After graduation from Central, I attended the University of Minnesota receiving my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business in 1966 from the University's Carlson School of Management.

I then went on to the University of Minnesota Law School where I received my J.D. Degree in 1969. After completing a judicial clerkship with the Minnesota Supreme Court in 1970, I began the private practice of law in the Twin Cities which I have done for over 40 years. I am currently a partner in the 200-lawyer Minnesota law firm of Leonard, Street and Deinard, where I concentrate my practice in business law.

In 1971 I married Wendy Halper. Wendy is an event planner for corporations and foundations. We have two children, Scott, 37, Jacy, 35, and seven grandchildren, all under 8 years old. All of our kids and grandkids live in Minneapolis (lucky us!).

I'm an avid golfer and cyclist. My wife and I love to travel. We've been to South Africa, Botswanna, Zimbabwe, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Cuba, Israel, Egypt and several European countries, among others.

We are active volunteers, both locally and nationally. Even though we recently moved from White Bear Lake to Minneapolis, our hearts are, and will remain, in St. Paul.

I am blessed with a great family, good health, terrific friends and a wonderful community. I couldn't ask for more.

I look forward to seeing many of you on August 4. Thank you to the committee for reuniting us for our 50th.

Miss Malmen - I hope you approve my grammar and punctuation.
