At commencement Katherine Ostrye wore a 71-year-old mortarboard that belonged to her grandmother, Sarah Buffum Hardman ’32. Katherine’s two aunts, Hulda Hardman Jowett ’61 and Mary Hardman LaPorte ’69, had also donned the cap when they graduated. Now the well-worn cap will be passed on to Katherine’s cousin, Alicia LaPorte—who will be a Skidmore freshman this fall—in the hopes that she’ll be the fifth family member to wear it.
