Richard Moore BS ’71 writes: “As tempting as it is to report on all my cool escapades over the last 50 years, it seems a bit self-serving. I wrestle daily with the question, “What if it isn’t all about me?” But if you want to peek through that window, just go to and search moorerichard001. You’ll find a very colorful and musical depiction of my life’s work as a songwriter and dilettante. My latest project is an off-grid tree house on Abiqua Creek, an hour south of Portland.

Stay in touch with your college pals, it’s well worth the effort.”
