Linda Austin BA, choreographer and performer, received a Performing Arts Fellowship from the Portland-based Regional Arts & Culture Council in 2014. With the support of the fellowship, she is revisiting past work and embarking on the creation of a new three-year, three-phase project, (Un)Made. She continues her efforts to support other artists through programming at Performance Works NorthWest (pwnw-pdx.org), which she cofounded in 1999 with husband Jeff Forbes BA ’78.

Douglas Neville BS now lives at a residential care facility in the Cully District of Northeast Portland. He developed cellulitis in his legs and feet and had to relearn how to walk.

Neville also did a KOPB radio show on Oregon history. His social life consists of participating in groups such as the Elks, Knights of Pythias, and Masonic Portland Lodge #55.
