David Counter, Class of 1973 writes: “I’m sort of a member of the class of ’73, but I only spent one year at Lewis & Clark, and most of that was in Peru. Before becoming a hippie dropout in the early ’70s, I attended Shimer College in Illinois and Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. After three decades in the restaurant and bakery business, I graduated in 2010 with a degree in humanities from the University of Oregon. Five years later, I got another BA in classics. If you’re from my generation, you probably understand that we didn’t always follow the rules. I’ve been retired since 2005 and spend my time reading, walking the dog, and thinking about the world. I live part time in Portland (also in Eugene and Waldport) and am happy to be alive.”
