Title slide of Nancy Upper’s Kaleidoscope of Passions presentation, Power of Ampersand ©2019 Nancy Upper
Nancy Upper’s husband, Dr. Dennis Upper, earned his B.A. in English from Yale University, his M.A. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Cincinnati, his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Case Western Reserve University, and the prestigious Diplomate in Clinical Psychology from the American Board of Professional Psychology.
Dr. Upper’s years at Yale led to enduring ties to the University. In May 2014, Dennis and Nancy attended the 50th reunion of Dennis’s Yale Class of 1964. A popular event at the reunion was the Kaleidoscope of Passions, created by classmate Edward Massey. The Kaleidoscope consists of six-minute slide presentations by 15 classmates on avid interests of theirs.
September 17, 2018, Dennis Upper suffered a terrible fall down thirteen stairs. September 18, he died.
Nancy continued their ties to the Yale community. At the 55th reunion, May 29 – June 02, 2019, Massey and reunion organizers repeated the Kaleidoscope of Passions. Classmates had learned of Nancy’s research on the ampersand and invited her to be one of the Kaleidoscope presenters.
