The 1941 Medical Graduates celebrated their 71st anniversary with a lunch at Graduate House on October 11 2012.

Only two people were present, Mary Wheeler and James Guest. They are friends of long standing, having read Science together before commencing Medicine. They have kept in touch since 1935 so there was plenty to talk about. The food was excellent.

On 9 October 2010, 150-odd graduates and partners gathered in the Australian Club to celebrate 30 years since graduation. The high ceilings, parquetry floor and ornate surroundings added gravitas to the gathering that contrasted with the informal enjoyment of the attendees.

The formal part of the evening consisted of speeches – including an entertaining presentation from guest speaker, and part- time descendent of Sigmund Freud, Nathan Serry – welcomes from the organising committee and a marvellous video-collage of old photographs.

The 1949 medical graduates celebrated their 61st year since graduation at the Racquet Club, Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club with a luncheon on Wednesday 20 October 2010. Graduates attending numbered 16, and there were 20 apologies (two from London and several from interstate.) Inability to attend was due mainly to personal or family illness or inability to travel, but one regular attendee came from Queensland and another from South Australia.
