Our Classmates and the AIDS Quilt

We remember our classmates who died way too young of AIDS-related causes. In her retirement in the 1990’s, Scotty Nicholls grieved the many Davidson community members who were dying from AIDS by sewing quilt panels to remember them. Learn about the 2018 AIDS Day Activities at Davidson College in an article written by Bill Giduz.

Today, an oral history recording of Scotty 's remarkable work is in the Davidson College archives.

Class of 1974 Quips and Cranks: 50th Anniversary Edition Quips & Cranks

As part of our celebration, the Reunion committee created a Class of 1974 Quips and Cranks: 50th Anniversary Edition. (Password Davidson_C74). All members of the Class of 1974 are encouraged to take a few moments to catch up with classmates before the big weekend! Classmates at Reunion Weekend will receive a hard copy when they arrive. Classmates not in attendance will receive a link to order a hard copy after Reunion Weekend.
