Dean Miller’s son gets married in D.C.

Cross Campus offers its congratulations to the happy couple, who are, we hope, on a beach like the one above, or hiking through the Himalayas, or doing something else exotic.

Cross Campus can hear the bells — William Kamens ’09, the son of Yale College Dean Mary Miller and East Asian Languages and Literatures Department Chair Edward Kamens was married on Sunday to Rachel Butler ’08.

The couple met during their years as Yale undergrads. They were married at the McLean Gardens Ballroom in Washington, D.C. in a ceremony officiated by Jewish Chaplain James Ponet ’68, and the wedding was featured in the New York Times’ wedding announcements.

At Yale, Kamens majored in history of art. He is currently a research assistant in the Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine Department at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Butler is a kindergarten teacher at the Alliance for Progress Charter School in Philadelphia.

“It was a wonderful wedding,” Miller told the News on Monday.
