Celebrate Your 50-Year Reunion in 2022

In 1972, Booth professors and future Nobel laureates Eugene Fama and Merton Miller published The Theory of Finance. The Godfather ruled in movie theaters, while Neil Young's "Heart of Gold" struck a chord as a No. 1 US single. Swimmer Mark Spitz set several world records at the US Olympic Trials in Portage Park, Chicago, on the way to winning seven Olympic Gold medals later that year.
