The Story Behind Forever Faithful:
Celebrating the Greatest Moments of Cornell Hockey
Date: MAY 16, 2023
Location: Alberto’s Ristorante, 360 Main Street, Hyannis, MA
Come join the Cornell Club of Cape Cod (CCCC) on May 16 for our Annual Meeting featuring dinner at Alberto’s Ristorante in Hyannis and a fascinating talk by CCCC member Jim Roberts ’71 co-author of Forever Faithful: Celebrating the Greatest Moments of Cornell Hockey, and former editor and publisher of the Cornell Alumni Magazine.
“The Cornell hockey traditions have been widely imitated but never equaled,”
Jim Roberts ’71 and Arthur Mintz ’71 Forever Faithful: Celebrating the Greatest Moments of Cornell Hockey
Cornell’s hockey program has a long and storied history—so why not a book? After Jim retired from the Cornell Alumni Magazine in 2014, that idea became a plan. Jim would write a book about Cornell hockey, focusing on its history and traditions and featuring accounts of some of the most memorable games played by both the men’s and women’s teams since the opening of Lynah Rink in 1957. Arthur Mintz ’71, who has served as the game announcer at Lynah since 1987, signed on as a researcher. Legendary goalie Ken Dryden ’69, perhaps the greatest player ever to suit up for the Big Red, agreed to write the foreword. More than two years of research, writing, editing, and book production followed, and Forever Faithful was published in 2017.
In his talk, Jim will highlight the outstanding teamwork that has distinguished both Cornell’s hockey teams and the CU Press team that created Forever Faithful.
Jim Roberts became a member of the Lynah Faithful as an undergraduate, watching the great Cornell teams coached by Ned Harkness. After graduating, he worked as a musician and freelance writer. He was named the first editor-in-chief of Bass Player magazine and later served as a publisher for the magazine’s parent corporation, Miller Freeman Inc. of San Francisco. He returned to Cornell in 1999 as director of communications for Alumni Affairs and Development before becoming editor and publisher of Cornell Alumni Magazine in June 2000.
