Reunion was great! Charlotte Smith King, Emily MacLachlin Carl, and I represented our class. Campus was beautiful with all the spring plantings in bloom. At the alumni recognition ceremony Charlotte was honored with a picture of campus plantings; it was her idea some time ago to use bags of daffodil bulbs to represent reunion gifts to the college. Our class favor was a scarf representing the growth of Skidmore from its earliest days; it included all the buildings on the old campus—even Newman Hall, the little house next to Skidmore Hall. Be assured that we are not forgotten, and neither should we forget that the Skidmore we knew is still there, stronger than ever.
Beth Twiggar Goff spends much of her time resting and reading. She sends regards to all.
Sadly, I report the deaths of Frances Corwin Nichols and Jessie Savage Hurlburt. Frances was our popular social committee chair during our senior year; we remember her poise and happy demeanor. Jessie was a talented fine arts major who always greeted everyone with a smile.
And, as noted in the In Memoriam section of the summer Scope, Winnie Mittag Beasley and Virginia Barker Holmberg passed away. Winnie’s warm personality, her deep sincerity, and her many services to the college will be remembered. Gina, the scientist, was a delight to know: quiet, funny, a caring friend and serious student.
