Class of 1964 Lost Alumni List

Part of the purpose of having a class reunion, beyond the fun and reminiscing, is to help find our Lost Classmates. The Office of Alumni Relations at Catholic University does not have any current information available to send the alumni listed below news about upcoming reunions and class events, and is asking for our help to find them. If you know of any current contact information for our following classmates, please email it to Michael Minetti, B.A. 2007, associate director, at

Note: the class lost and deceased lists are updated twice monthly. If you have submitted an update and do not see it reflected on the lists, it will be coming soon.
