9/11 Remembered: In Your Words

Ten years ago, the Williams community, along with the rest of the world, was stunned by the September 11 attacks, and together we mourned the overwhelming loss of life suffered that day. Among those lost were three alumni—Howard L. Kestenbaum ’67, Lindsay S. Morehouse ’00, and Brian J. Murphy ’80—as well as the parent of a student.  As they continue to be missed, their legacies live on at Williams and beyond, in their families and the communities they touched, and in scholarships and other memorial gifts created in their honor. We encourage you to learn more about Howard, Lindsay, and Brian through their biographies and portraits (links below), and we offer in the current Alumni Review a story about the ways 9/11 altered the life paths of three members of the Williams family.
