Hey Now, Highball! (46 Weeks To Go)

By Melanie Hirschfelder Berkowitz, C’93, and Kiera Reilly, C’93

You never know what treasures you will find when cleaning out the attic, basement, or boxes of things in the back of a closet. As we countdown the weeks to our 25th Penn reunion #93tothe25th, we are encouraging classmates to share photos, memories or mementos of our time at Penn.

Melanie Hirschfelder Berkowitz, C’93, found some items from Penn in her attic. One was the Spring 1990 issue of Highball Magazine, a humor magazine created by Penn students. This issue is the 35th anniversary issue.

Melanie writes:

I was cleaning out my attic and found a few mementos from Penn you might be interested in…my personal favorite, an edition of Highball Magazine with a very interesting page inside.

No, not the masthead…

Perhaps this page?

Melanie says,

I did not write for Highball, and I’m not sure why I kept it, but the Trump thing was too funny not to share.
