Wakefield Class of 1970

1970 Montage

The Class of 1970 hosted a Happy Hour gathering at Clyde's Mark Center at 1700 N Beauregard St in Alexandria on Friday, 9/28/18 from 4:00 - 7:00 PM in the Back Bar area. If you were unable to attend this gathering, another gathering is tentatively planned for April. All classes are invited to join us.

Jan Talbot '70 retired in 2018 from the University of California San Diego after a noteworthy career as a female pioneer in the field of Electrochemical Engineering. Jan was one of only two females in her graduating class in Chemical Engineering at Penn State and was one of only seven women among 3000 men in the Engineering program in 1970.

After receiving her masters from Penn State, Jan became one of two women in her class to graduate from the University of Minnesota in 1986 with a doctorate in engineering and one of 225 women to earn that degree in the whole country.
