Five alumni were part of a group that hiked to the summit of Mt. Marcy, New York’s highest peak, in August. Standing, from left, are Stu Solsky ’79, Alex Solsky, Mike Lambert ’79, Tim Lambert, Phill Mitchell ’79, Wes Foy ’79, and Pete Johnston. In front is Dan Imlay ’78. Not pictured, but maintaining base camp, was Mike Joye ’79. Mt. Marcy was named by Rensselaer Alumni Hall of Fame member and renowned geologist Ebenezer Emmons, Class of 1826, who organized and led the first recorded ascent of the mountain in 1837 and named it for New York State Governor William Learned Marcy.
To cap off their biking and hiking vacation in France and Switzerland in July, Jim and Lauren (Perpetua) Farrell stopped in Zurich to visit an old RPI friend. They found the Chrinitoid, also known as George Rickey’s Two Rectangles, Vertical Gyratory Up, Variation III, in its new home outside the UBS building in a small trash-strewn plaza overlooking a canal feeding Lake Zurich. When they approached the sculpture the weather changed from the forecasted sunny summer day to cold rain with the wind rising, perhaps to make the environment more Troy-like for their visit. In their words,“Although its new home doesn’t seem worthy, it was good to see this old friend silently spin and rotate its stainless steel flippers in the Swiss breeze, as it had in its historic home outside the Greene Building on the RPI campus until 1984.”
