Messenger - Vol. 1, No. 3, Page 21 Spring 1992 Alumni briefs Directory to help renew old friendships Finding a former classmate can be as difficult as looking for the proverbial "needle in a haystack." But not anymore. Soon, an impressive alumni directory will be available to help you locate your old friends. The new University of Delaware Alumni Directory, scheduled for release in November/December 1992, will be the most up-to-date and complete reference ever compiled on over 66,971 University of Delaware alumni. This comprehensive volume will include the current name, address, phone number and academic data, plus applicable business information, bound into a classic, library-quality edition. The Office of Alumni Relations has contracted Bernard C. Harris Publishing Co. Inc. to produce the directory. Harris is compiling information through questionnaire responses from alumni. (If you prefer not to be listed in the directory, please contact the Alumni Office in writing as soon as possible.) The new University of Delaware Alumni Directory will soon make finding a fellow graduate as easy as opening a book. Look for details on the project in future issues.
