Yesterday, we reported that Alvin Hall ’74 was among a group of people who rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on Monday, April 26. It was a followup to an earlier story about three Bowdoin grads-Jon Chapman ’96, Tom Davidson ’94 and Ray Martinez ’96- who rang the NASDAQ opening bell on the very same day (we didn’t know about Alvin when we posted the first story).
Now, we learn that another Bowdoin grad participated in the NYSE closing bell ceremony on the very same day! Michael Townsend ’90 is the tall guy in the back in this video.
Anyone else ring a bell that day?
