DATE: Sunday, October 24, 1999
A funeral will be held today for Margaret T. (Peggy) Alper of Boston, an editor at Houghton Mifflin Co., who died Friday of cancer. She was 56.
Friends and family said that Mrs. Alper battled sarcoma, a soft-tissue cancer, for the past decade with a determined optimism.
Despite periodic setbacks and frequent surgical procedures, Mrs. Alper refused to let her illness halt her work or her walking treks around the world, including a hike across England two years ago.
Mrs. Alper was a passionate student of foreign cultures, an enthusiasm kindled in high school when she was an American Friends Service exchange student in Turkey, forging a lifelong friendship with her host family.
After earning degrees in English and education at the University of
Washington and Boston University, Mrs. Alper became a specialist in English as a second language. In the 1960s she taught as a volunteer in Venezuela and in Nicaraguan orphanages.
Born in San Francisco, she came to Boston in 1970, engaging in community service in the Latino community in Waltham and building a career as an editor of language and social studies textbooks at Houghton Mifflin, Addison Wesley, and other publishing companies.
Mrs. Alper believed so strongly in the value of foreign travel and
multilingualism that she funded study trips for a number of young people, many of whom never knew who their benefactor was.
"She did things in a quiet, unassuming way, never looking to claim
authorship or credit," said her husband, Frederic Alper. Mrs. Alper was a benefactor of many causes, including Planned Parenthood and handgun control. She was also a voracious reader, an Anglophile, and a member of the Jane Austen and Trollope Societies who loved to visit literary sites in the English countryside.
"She had great curiosity about the world and maintained connections with people all over the world," said Peggy Glass, a close friend and former Auburndale neighbor. "She had a sprightliness about her. I will always remember her recently flinging a backpack on her back to go off and discover some new thing."
In addition to her husband, she leaves two sons, Michael of San Francisco and Jeremy of New York City; and a brother, Kenneth Tennen of Los Angeles.
The funeral will be at 1:30 p.m. in Levine Chapel in Brookline. Burial will be in Sharon Memorial Park.


Don Young DON YOUNG (1942-1994)
Don was our 1960 Senior Class President. Don was a successful restaurateur. He co-owned Alejandros in Los Alamitos with his family until 1987 when he moved to Paso Robles and bought The Scoreboard, a sports bar. He ran it until he became ill with cancer. He passed away June 26, 1994. He always thought of his school years as a wonderful time in his life and remained friends with Mike Tracy and Terry Smith as well as many others. Don was married three times and he fathered three sons, Mike, Travis and Matt and one daughter, Karon Lenarth. We will miss him.

This is from Judy Snodgrass

Those we love stay with us,
for love itself lives on.
And cherished memories never fade
because a loved ones gone.
Those we love can never be
more than a world apart,
for as long as there are memories
they'll live on in the heart.

Webmaster Note: This list is open to all Millikan classmates, but I only have yearbook photos for '57, '58, '59, and '60.

IF you have any information regarding a student who graduated from Robert A. Millikan between the years 1957 to the present please send a copy of that information to Paul at:
