Alumni - An AU Love Story
Donald '48 and Miriam "Mimi" (Tooke) '48 Polan

We met as teenagers in middle school at South Hall and high school at Alfred-Almond Central School (but not at college). We dated for almost two years, got our educations, married other people and met again at an Alfred Alumni Reunion after losing our spouses.

Present at our wedding, in the Gothic Chapel in Alfred, were sister Genevieve Polan Scheffer '46; brother-in-law, Karl Scheffer MS '49; cousin Frances Polan Clarke '42; Pastor David Clarke '41, who officiated; Norma Jacox Stoneham '48. 

We did not see much of each other while attending our college classes since we were not in any of the same classes.
