Retirement dinner honors 155 community members

President Charles M. Vest drew parallels between MIT's recent graduation exercises and the closing of working life when he spoke at the annual retirement dinner at the end of May.

"Commencement, as we know, signifies not so much an end to carefree youth as a new beginning. And retirement, too, while putting one phase of our lives behind us, opens up a new road for a new journey," Dr. Vest said.

He noted that the 155 members of this year's retiring class have selected a rich variety of new directions for themselves including, teaching overseas, designing sundials, skippering yachts, playing chamber music and restoring antiques in addition to beloved standard avocations like travel, fishing, golf and gardening.

President Vest thanked the group for more than 4,200 years of collective service carrying out "the myriad tasks that must be performed to make this a supportive environment for our students and to enable MIT to be the best it can be. Our quality and stature, our teaching and research programs, our sense of community and service-these are your doing."
