    Silas Dunklee later became the ski and tennis coach at Colby College from 1966 through 1968. He managed the NCAA's at Sugarloaf Mtn in early 1967. He was a classmate of mine in 1970. He later went to New England College and died too soon at the age of 69. He was a great friendly and energetic human being.
