Members of the NU Club of Dallas/Fort Worth learned last fall about the latest research on Alzheimer’s disease from Roger Rosenberg (FSM64), director of the Alzheimer’s Disease Center at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. Rosenberg, a 1986 Northwestern Alumni Association Merit Award winner, is past president of the American Neurological Association. Glenn Anderson (WCAS53) is president of the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Dallas and serves on the alumni club’s board of directors.

On the West Coast the NU Club of Los Angeles in November hosted Irv Rein, professor of communication studies, who discussed fame and the strategies used by celebrities to achieve it. Rein joined the group at the California Yacht Club in Marina del Rey and was introduced by his son, Perry Rein (C88, GC89), supervising producer of the television series Becker.

Cindy Chupack (J87), coexecutive producer of the HBO comedy Sex and the City, visited with 53 alumni and guests from the NU Club of Portland (Ore.) last fall. Chupack offered an insider’s view of the Emmy Award–winning series and recounted her career experiences, which included work on the TV shows Coach and Everybody Loves Raymond. An auction of one of Chupack’s autographed scripts and other television memorabilia raised $225 for the group’s scholarship fund.

The club’s winter calendar included a reception with Daniel Bernstine (L72), president of Portland State University. A summer family picnic and a party for new undergraduates are also planned.

Thanks to a grant from the Freedom Forum, the NU Club of Washington, D.C. hosted a discussion of key election results at the National Press Club in November, which was broadcast live on C-SPAN. Medill dean Loren Ghiglione moderated the event, which included panel members Joie Chen (J82, GJ83), congressional correspondent for CBS News; Susan Page (J73), White House correspondent for USA Today; Les Crystal (J56, GJ57), executive producer of PBS’ The Newshour with Jim Lehrer; and Kwame Holman (GJ82), congressional correspondent for the same program.

In October the club welcomed Penelope Peterson, dean of the School of Education and Social Policy, and education professor G. Alfred Hess Jr., who led a discussion on current trends in education policy.
