45th Reunion (Class of 1976)

Celebrating 45 Years

The Class of 1976 Remembers

In 1976, the first commercial Concorde flights took off, cutting transatlantic flying time to 3.5 hours; the National Basketball Association and the American Basketball Association agreed to a merger; Apple Inc. was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne (one year after Microsoft was formed!); Democrat Jimmy Carter defeated Republican incumbent Gerald Ford to win the U.S. presidential election; the U.S. Naval Academy inducted its first class with women; and even more momentously, the Gilman Class of 1976 graduated that spring.

2021 Class Notes

During these uncertain times, Gilman continues to strive to strengthen the mind, body, and spirit of its students...and of its alumni. Now more than ever, we are excited to celebrate what inspires and connects us. We hope that you enjoyed this trip down memory lane and, despite the pandemic-driven social distancing and travel restrictions, are still able to share with us a story of an encounter with a classmate.
