Evanston Twp High School
Class Of 1964
NEW - The Class of 1964/Jack Rakove Award in History
The ETHS history department every year will name an outstanding “late bloomer,” a senior who did not begin high school as an academic superstar, to receive $1,000 and a book written by our classmate Jack, a Pulitzer Prize winner and Stanford professor.
Ths idea took root on our reunion website, with over 40 people expressing support. The more of us who participate, the more meaningful the award. Please join the classmates who have pledged.
To donate online or by check – and to read full details about the Class of 1964 award — go to the left column on this page and click on the link “Class of '64 Rakove Award". Donations of any amount are appreciated and all are tax-deductible.
Your Reunion Committee will soon have its first post-Reunion meeting to determine the ongoing mission of the committee and its officers.
If you'd like to participate on the committee or even seek an officer position, please notify Judy Anderson at email@example.com as soon as possible. Keep checking the website for further information.

From our Reunion Chairperson...
Dear Fellow Classmates,
I hope that everyone who attended our 50th reunion last weekend enjoyed themselves, reconnected with old friends and made some new ones in the process. I loved seeing everyone and am sorry I did not get enough time to speak with each of you individually as much as I would have liked. For those who were unable to join us, we missed having you there.
A reunion of this scale takes an army to get it done. I was just the "General" who, with the help of Pat Wanzenberg, tried to pull it all together. A special thanks to our Steering Committee and everyone else who helped with this wonderful weekend.
Pat, Phil, Fred and I are most grateful for the warmth, thanks and support that we received from so many of you this past weekend.
I'd like to thank everyone in the class who attended our 50th reunion, as well as any of our past reunions. I'd like to thank all the classmates that have ever worked on a reunion committee, helped us on reunion weekend, and the many more that have helped us with the classmate search effort and given us leads as well as news of our deceased classmates.
I will stay involved in the database and try to keep track of everyone (alive or deceased) until someone steps up to take this part of the job over. Fred will keep the website going for the time being, and we will later make a decision as to whether to keep the website going on a long term basis. We hope everyone will continue to use the website for connecting with other classmates and learning about future Class of ’64 activities. Sometime in early October, Fred will start posting pictures from our 50th Reunion on our website. If any of you have pictures from this or other reunions that you would like to share, please direct them to Fred in accordance with instructions that he has provided below and in emails.
Again, thank you for all the warm acknowledgements that came my way this past weekend. They were greatly appreciated and will be fondly remembered.
Hope to see all of you at our 55th reunion - wherever it is!
With warm wishes,
...and now a message from your website administrator...
Just a short time has passed since we concluded the last event of our exciting and very successful 50th Reunion weekend. The combination of excellent venues, fine food, a hearty dose of nostalgia and, most importantly, time spent with good friends and making new friends made for an unforgettable experience. Of course, many thanks to my fellow reunion committee members for organizing the events and to all of you who attended and added so much energy to the reunion.
As requested by so many of the reunion attendees, the ETHS Class of ’64 website (www.eths1964.com) will remain active and available for your continued viewing and postings.
Our classmates have furnished a wealth of photos from the reunion, and they have now been posted on our website (see link at left marked "50th Reunion Photo Gallery"). You can print copies of your favorite photos by going to the "Reunion Photo Sharing" link on the left side of this page.
Thanks for your support at the reunion and for your continued participation on the website. It was a wonderful experience seeing so many of my classmates again.
