50th Reunion, class of 1963

The Pembroke College class of 1963 graduated under Brown University President Barnaby Keeney and Pembroke College Dean Rosemary Pierrel. During their senior year, President John F. Kennedy promised that a Civil Rights bill was on the horizon, while travel by United States Citizens to Cuba was made illegal. At the same time, Pembroke abolished the Forum for Civil Liberties and the Fair Play for Cuba Committee while it instituted the Socialist Discussion Group was instituted. Additionally, the Pembroke College newspaper, the Pembroke Record, continued to compete with Brown University’s Brown Daily Herald. However Pembrokers were thrilled to announce that one of their own finally became a member of the managing board of the Brown Daily Herald, though her name was never recorded. Pembroke hosted traditional events such as father-daughter, mother-daughter, and spring weekends.
