A man in Connecticut

In 2014 my school in Melbourne Australia was holding an art exhibition. The curator of the exhibition was American, partner of a former student of the school. We were chatting about where he came from in the US. I mention I had a friend who was Head of a school in New Hampshire. When I mention the school, he said they used to play sport against the school. I asked him which school he attended. It was Deerfield in Massachusetts. I said the only person who i knew who worked there was a person called David Dun***. It turned out this fellow had David as a teacher. I met David in 2005 at an education conference in Washington. I noticed his family named matched a person I had met in a school in New Hampshire in 1987. It turned out that this person was his father. The coincidence continues. A close colleague was visiting a sister school in Connecticut in 2017. She was given a person to look after her for the day. This fellow had worked in Melbourne in the 1980s, for a year. When she was introduced, the fellow wondered if she new her brother David's acquaintance in Melbourne - which turned out to be me. These experiences happen to me all the time, but this is the most extreme. Might be because I have worked in three quite large schools. Who knows, but thought it may help your research.
