Name: Ian Kenyon
College: King's College
Subject: Chemistry
Class of: 1964

Ian Kenyon and nine others who graduated in 1964 are still in touch via e-mail and managed to meet in 2012, fifty years after they first joined the GDH course in Chemistry and Physics or Maths and are now discussing a repeat sixty years on in 2022.

Nine of us from around the UK and Canada met in Newcastle in 2012 along with partners for a 2 day get together, catch up and reminiscences. It was surprising how easy it was to reconnect after so many years and re-establish the firm friendships we had had at Kings.

I have attached three photographs pertaining to the reunion. Two show the same group of six fifty years apart and are from left to right :-
George Cousins, Peter Burton, Ian Kenyon, John Bowen, Keith Knox and Frank Smith

The third shows all nine who attended the reunion, the three others from left to right being Tony Senior, Dave Porter and Gordon Freeman. The tenth member of the group who was unable to attend is Mike Paul.

This shows the 1962/3 season Kings College Basketball team who were the only Kings team ever to win the Tyneside league championship. As you can see from their strip this group also made up the great majority of the Durham University team.
