Alumni - An AU Love Story
Ed ’58 and Carol (Davidson) ’60 DeChristopher

On June 9, 2008 we will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.

We met in the back seat of a car (honestly), owned by Don Carlin who lived in Harrison, while returning to our homes in Westchester County. I lived in Larchmont and Ed's in Peekskill.

I was a freshman and Ed was a Junior. We dated that year and the next. I was a nursing student and Ed was taking classes in Corning. I was in Sigma Chi Nu and Ed was in Klan Alpine.

We became engaged on Christmas Eve 1957 and married at St. Mary's Church in Corning, NY on 9 June 1958.

Ed entered the US Army on the day we were married and we moved all over the country and world until we retired from the Army in 1988.

We have 5 children: Patty (children TJ and Matt), Robert (children Lane and Blake), Karen (children Rachel and Branden), Dawn (children Amanda, Alison, Brad, and Ben), and Kevin (children Jordan, Laurel, and Olivia). Rachel is a graduate of Alfred.
