Undergraduate Alumni Notes

Over a year has passed since the Spring 1997 issue of Duke Policy News, and the biggest news is the departure of Mary Edwards, long time director of Internships, Placement, and Alumni for the Sanford Institute. The new director, Donna Dyer (PPS '78), has taken information from old notes and new acquaintances to compile this group of Alumni Notes. If we left out a big event in your life, or if we got something wrong, please do not take offense! We will include it in the next issue, if you email us at dpn@pps.duke.edu with the necessary update.
