During the late 1800s and early 1900s, thousands of Native American children were wrested from their tribes by the U.S. government and sent to boarding schools as a method of forced assimilation. Six-year-old Charles Belgarde was one of them.
THE ADVANCEMENT EXPERIENCE CENTER
In 1965, a Ford Motor Company executive invited Fred Brodsky, DMSB’66, to pilot a rare Shelby Cobra 427 roadster—when the Northeastern University co-op student was just 20 years old. Key in hand, Brodsky slipped behind the wheel, sparked the muscle car’s V8 engine, and burned rubber.
Northeastern has been a very important part of Sam and Nancy Jo Altschuler’s lives. Sixty years ago, Sam received his MBA degree with Nancy Jo at his side. Two months later they were engaged, one month later they bought a new home, and on November 15, 1958, they were married. What a great year!
