Alaska: David Dority ’74 and Mike Newman ’74

Two couples celebrating their 50th wedding anniversaries took a trip to Alaska in May 2023.  David Dority ’74 and his wife, Claudia, were married on December 18, 1971 (Their original 50th anniversary trip was canceled due to COVID-19). Mike Newman ’74 and his wife, Peggy, were married on July 14, 1973. Claudia and Peggy are sisters, which made the trip that much more special. The couples are pictured at Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, the Newmans left and the Doritys right.
