The entrepreneurial spirit of Eliphalet Nott lives on in alumni and friends.
Members of the new Eliphalet Nott Society agree to contribute to the College at least two percent of their equity in an enterprise in which they are the founder, principal, leader, or investor.
So far, five alumni have made commitments to the society. The newest member is David Blakelock '83, president of Streamline, Inc., of Westwood, Mass. At a meeting of the society in April, he presented a letter of intent to contribute three percent of his equity in Streamline when he liquidates his interest in the company.
Others who have contributed to the Eliphalet Nott Society include William E. Mooar '67,
society president; Clair Smith '44; Stephen L. Zuckerman '62, M.D.; and the late Arthur M. Vash '51.
In addition to financial support, society members offer advice to the College and to other alumni on services or programs from which entrepreneurs or prospective entrepreneurs might benefit. The next meeting will be held in the fall in New York City.
