After looking over the attendance list at the last alumni beach party, the board thought it would be interesting to see where all the alumni in attendance came from. Only those folks that signed in and we were able to find an address for them in the database are reflected on the map. For this first map, we have not included the alumni names, just the graduation year, town and distance traveled. We hope to enhance it next year with names as well.

Bill Hodges ’55 passed away this spring. Bill graduated from Brown University and from the University of Virginia School of Law, after which he served in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps of the United States Navy. A life-long resident, Bill loved Baldwin and established his law practices here in his hometown. He was active in the Nassau County Bar Association, Baldwin Dad’s and Boosters, Baldwin Historical Society and other organizations too numerous to mention. He served as Counsel for the Baldwin Foundation for Education and as and Elder in the First Presbyterian Church in Baldwin.
The loss of Judge Hodges will be felt by many.
