Occupation: I am an attorney, my speciality is international tax & estate planning for wealthy foreigners. I am a Vice President at The Chase Manhattan Private Bank in the Global Trust & Fiduciary Services Department. I assist wealthy Latin Americans in creating offshore trust and company structures.
Web sites: N
Life Update: It's a long way from 1958 in Long Beach, California to 2000 in Chappaqua, New York. After I graduated from Millikan I spent one semester at LBSC and then transferred up to the Univ. of Calif. at Berkeley where I graduated in 1963 in Psychology. In late 63, I moved to New York City and found a job with the Collegiate Council for the United Nations. In '64, heeding the words of Kennedy ("ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country") I joined the Peace Corps and after training for 4 months in Brattleboro, Vermont went to Brazil as a PCV. (You know the Tom Hanks movie, Volunteers? well it was something like that). I was stationed for 6 months in the interior of the state of Espirito Santo and spent the last 15 months in Recife, in the state of Pernambuco on the coast, 11 degrees South of the equator. The Peace Corps changed my life and continues to have an impact on it today. Returning from Brazil, I enrolled in a Masters program in Comparative & International Education at Columbia University. I lived at International House a dormitory for international and US graduate students. As I wanted to keep up my Portuguese, I hung out with a group of Brazilians and in 1968 married one of them. (So I did keep up my Portuguese.) In the first 11 years of our marriage we made 7 international moves back and forth between Brazil and the US. Our oldest (Erica) and youngest child (Max) were born in Rio, where my hasband is from, and our middle child (Daniel) was born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. In Brazil, I played tennis and bridge, studied print making at the Escola de Belas Artes and with some friends founded a little theater group. I became accustomed to moving every two to two and a half years. So after we returned to the States and bought a house in Chappaqua, NY in 1979 and three years passed, I said what now? I decided to enroll in law school and began as a full time student at Fordham Univ. School of Law in 1983, graduating in 1986. (When I started law school I had a husband, 3 children, a cat, a dog and 3 goldfish. When I finished law school I had a husband, 3 children, a cat and a dog. The three goldfish died. Not a bad record.) Once I started practicing law, I quickly decided that I wanted to specialize in Trusts & Estates work and felt that if I wanted to do sophisticated, complex work I needed a better grasp of tax law. So I enrolled in the LL.M in taxation program at New York University which I attended at night after work for 4 years and a summer. I don't know whether that shows I was committed or I should have been committed. Shortly after I began this program, I left the small law firm I was working for and started working for a Wall Street firm where I did international tax and estate planning for high net worth clients. After 6 years of working for a real #@$$#@@@, I decided to work on the trustee side of the business. I first worked for Citibank doing fiduciary marketing principally against the Brazilian market. Three years ago I joined Chase and have been doing the same kind of work but against the entire Latin American market. I travel to Latin America frequently (13 trips last year) to meet with our clients. Its a great job that combines by legal and technical background with my knowledge of Latin America and my Portuguese and Spanish language skills.

My two oldest children are married and the youngest is in his last year of college. The only friend from Millikan I've kept up with is Jeanne (Ferguson) Glass who lives in a small town in the South of France near Salon. We lost track of each other for 13 years and were reunited in Florence, Italy in 1976, where her mother was living at the time. What a reunion that was! Since then we've seen each other every couple of years, either when she comes to New York or I go to France. Her sister, Margaret (Ferguson) Echanique Millikan '60 (I think) lives in Staten Island. Well, you can see why I refer to myself as the long winded lady.
School Activies: I belonged to a ridiculous number of clubs, the most significant I think were Salus, Jr. Statesmen, Class Council, etc. Hobbies/Fun: Reading, golf, travel
Car-Millikan Days: a 1946 battlegrey Plymouth that was a real workhorse. It had no body or other work ever done on it and was amazing simply because it ran. Friends used to "borrow" it by hot wiring it.

Life Update: Life has been good. After Millikan and two years at Long Beach City College I started a summer job at Pacific Bell. That summer job turned into a 34 year marketing career. I was extremely fortunate to retire early at 54 and enjoy all the good things retirement offers. I've been married to Delores, the true love of my life, for 38 years. Our home has been in Orange County for the past 12 years. We have two sons, both the best a parent could ask for. No grand-children yet, but all in due time. Over the past several years I've been able to indulge my passion for travel. To date, 19 countries on 5 continents and 32 states. And many more to come.
Hobbies/Fun: Tennis, ocean-kayaking, hiking, photography and travel.

What a great website for Millikan.  I'm sorry that I missed the 50th reunion.  I moved from Santa Fe, NM back to California to be close to 3 new grandchildren, all boys.  Now living in Bakersfield and involved with my two daughters' families, gardening, and finally taking a class in ceramics, throwing pots etc.

  Retired from New Mexico State Library where I traveled throughout the state working with librarians and their boards. A beautiful place and wonderful cultures, both Native American and Hispanic.

 Spoke to another 1958 graduate recently, Sandra Deaton, who is living in Henderson, NV and doing Fused Glass, an art form she is teaching and creating.
