Commonalities

Moore Commons puts the finishing touch on Northwoods Village. At a white-linen, quiche, and fruit-salad affair early one August morning, trustees and student leaders joined college officials
to formally dedicate the new student-apartment complex. The village’s byways now sport street signs honoring current and former trustees: Cane Crossing (Myles Cane P’81), Dayton Drive
(Joan Layng Dayton ’63), Thomas Terrace (Suzanne Corbet Thomas ’62). And Moore Commons, which President Phil Glotzbach deemed “the centerpiece” of the village, was named for Skidmore’s second president, Henry Moore. Moore’s son John (who was present with his wife, Bettina
Towne Moore ’41) said if his father could see Skidmore today, “he would be truly thrilled, as we
all are.” —MTS
