Four alumni were among those honored in a memorial service by Northampton Bar Association last October. Clyde Teel ’29, Nathan Reibman ’32, Herbert Fishbone ’41, and Gus Milides ’49 all passed away in 2005.

An English graduate, Teel was a founding member of a downtown improvement group. He began his practice in 1938 after completing graduate work at University of Pennsylvania. Economics graduate and attorney Karl Kline ’70 offered Teel’s eulogy. Teel died at age 97 on March 3.

Reibman, who also attended University of Pennsylvania, began his practice in 1935. An economics graduate, he had celebrated last year his 62nd wedding anniversary to wife Jeanette, a state representative and the first woman in Pennsylvania to serve a full term as state senator. Superior Court Judge Jack A. Panella offered remarks. Reibman died on Aug. 3 at age 94.

Milides, a biology graduate, dispensed free legal advice to those who could not afford it before the county ever offered a Legal Aid Society or public defender. Attorney Norman Seidel ’38, a government and law graduate who began practicing 10 years before Milides, commented on his career. Milides died on June 14 at age 76.

An economics graduate, Fishbone started his civil and criminal law practice in 1950 after attending Cornell University. He was eulogized by attorney Joel M. Scheer. Fishbone died at age 83 on March 29.
