Alumnae Gifts Up For 1977-78 

The Gifts of 3,086 alumnae to the 
1977-78 Agnes Scott Fund totaled 
$377,702. This included bequests of 
$158,094 from the estate of Laura 
Steele '37, and $2,970 from that of 
Florence Smith Sims "13, as well as a 
$16,000 annuity. This number of 
donors represents 35 percent of the 
8.888 active alumnae. 

With the leadership of William C. 
Wardlaw of Atlanta as General 
Chairman and Elizabeth Blackshear 
(Lib) Flinn '38 of Atlanta as Alumnae 
Chairman, some 4,176 alumnae and 
friends gave a total of $1,095,701 to 
Agnes Scott in 1977-78. This amount 

By Pan! McCain 
Vice President for Development 

includes gifts for endowment and for 
the renovation of Buttrick. 

Except for those who preferred to 
give anonymously, all individuals, 
foundations, and businesses who made 
their gifts directly to Agnes Scott are 
listed on the following pages. These 
donors made their gifts to the College 
from July 1, 1977, through June 30, 
1978; gifts received after the latter 
date will be shown in the report 
for 1978-79. 

The Tower Circle is that group of 
donors whose gifts were $1,000 or 
more. The Colonnade Club includes 
those who gave $500 or more, the 

Quadrangle Quorum for donors of 
$250 or more, and the Century Clu 
for those who gave $100 or more. '

Please let the Agnes Scott Fund 
Office know of any corrections wh: 
may be needed so that we can be 
sure our records are accurate. 

To worker and donor alike, the 
entire College community welcomei 
this opportunity to thank you and 
express our appreciation for your 
fine response.

Agnes Scott's Endowment and 
Other Permanent Funds 

ROUGH THE YEARS alumnae and 
inds of Agnes Scott have provided 
s to build the College and to 
;ngthen its programs. Many of these 
s have made it possible to improve 
ulty compensation, to increase 
ancial aid to students, and to add 
)ks for the Library and equipment 
the classrooms and laboratories, 
viost of the gifts received each year 
unrestricted. The College can 
)ly them to scholarship awards or 
some other budget needs. When a 
; is designated for a specific 

purpose, the College respects the 
donor's wish. 

Some restricted gifts are made for 
the Endowment so that the principal 
will be held intact and only the income 
will be used for general or specific 
purposes. Gifts for student loan funds 
are meeting a growing need. Sometimes 
a donor will make a gift but will select 
a life-income plan such as an annuity, 
thereby benefiting both the College 
and the donor. 

Agnes Scott is indebted to alumnae 
and friends for their interest and 

generosity in establishing the 
following permanent fimds for the 
College. The amount shown for each 
fund represents the total of all gifts 
received through September 15, 1978. 
This list describes individually all 
funds of S 1,000 or more, but it does 
not include scholarships provided 
anuLially by the donors. 

Please let the Development Office 
know of any errors or omissions so 
that corrections can be made.

FOR 1977-78 


• eighty-ninth academic year — and my fifth as 
sident — was an unusually full one, with a schedule of 
ies and pleasures which seems to grow each year in 
e and pressures despite the welcome intervals of 
■eation and reflection when we can appreciate the 
uty and serenity which are the setting here for all our 
y days. 

t is hard to realize that five college years have come 
gone since my family and I moved into the President's 
ise on Candler Street in July, 1973. For us these have 
n five years of happy associations and friendships, of 
sfactions which even the inevitable demands and 
blems of a president's job have not diminished. A 
tion of this annual report will be devoted to a brief 
imary of these past five years. It is good to take stock 
asionally, to see what has been accomplished and what 
remains to be done, to gain a fresh perspective in the 
it of past events, to measure recent achievements against 
lier projections and hopes. But first, a look at the 
7-78 academic year. 

^ew members of the Agnes Scott community would 
;ct the same events and developments in trying to list 
highlights of a given college year. But there are usually 
le which most of us would agree have contributed in 
lificant measure to the year and to our ongoing 
icational program. I have made a selection for mention 
e; others of perhaps equal importance could certainly 

[Tie academic year saw both renewed commitment to 
liberal arts tradition and the addition of several new 
irses and programs which add flexibility and appeal to 
curriculum, especially for those students interested in 
eers after graduation. New freshmen/sophomore 
linars included such offerings as "Women in Art," 

"Chemistry of Over the Counter Drugs," and "Rags to 
Revolution" (American jazz). We saw our first student 
enrolled in the new Agnes Scott-Georgia Tech dual degree 
program in engineering, and this program with Georgia 
Tech was expanded to include degree programs in 
computer science and industrial management. Through 
the R.O.T.C. programs at Georgia Tech, Agnes Scott 
students may now receive academic credit and a 
commission in the Air Force or Navy R.O.T.C. 
Scholarships are also available with these programs. We 
expect to have our first students in them in the coming 

How can a liberal arts education be strengthened to 
make it an even more effective preparation for professional 
and business careers? This is a question which 
faculties in colleges like Agnes Scott have been much 
concerned with in recent years. More and more of our 
students are interested in business careers as well as in the 
traditional professions. Accordingly, in the summer of 
1977 a Faculty Task Force surveyed a number of high 
ranking corporate executives throughout the Southeast by 
means of a questionnaire which sought their advice as to 
courses which would be most useful to the liberal arts 
graduate seeking entry into such careers as banking, 
advertising, publishing, insurance, manufacturing, utilities, 
and law. Response to the questionnaire was excellent, and 
in the spring of 1978 the faculty approved a program 
proposed by the Task Force called a "Preparatory Program 
for Business." The program will be offered for the first 
time in 1978-79 and consists of some nineteen courses in 
such diverse fields as economics. English, mathematics, 
psychology, philosophy, political science, and theatre. A 
student must complete nine of these courses in three areas. 
Her official transcript at graduation will then carry the 
notation that she has completed the "Preparatory Program 
for Business." The program does not alter requirements 
for graduation, nor does it constitute a major, but it can 
be useful in choosing related elective hours required for 
graduation. Although the program does not of course 
guarantee a student a job at graduation, it should help 
her to become familiar with the basic skills and knowledge 
required for entry level positions in business today. 
Advance registration this past spring indicates a strong 
interest in this new program. 

Among departmental innovations this past year was a 
colloquium sponsored by the Department of Philosophy 
under the title "Man's Control of Life: an Examination of 
Values." On nine successive Thursday afternoons in the 
winter and early spring there were discussions in the 
faculty club followed by dinner in the President's Room 
of Letitia Pate Evans Dining Hall. The colloquium 
featured visting speakers from the Atlanta community, 
with follow-up discussion sessions chaired by professors 
Richard Parry and David Behan of the Agnes Scott 
Department of Philosophy. The purpose of the colloquium 
was to explore a series of contemporary issues related to 
traditional philosophical concerns and to provide students 
a forum in which "to practice their dialectical skills." 

Once again Agnes Scott's annual Writers' Festival was 
a distinct success. Held on April 13 and 14, the Festival 
brought practicing authors and poets to the campus to 
meet with Georgia college students and to discuss with 
them the craft of writing. Among the professional writers 


participating were novelist John Yount, poet Larry Rubin, 
and fiction writer and poet Josephine Jacobsen. Panel 
discussions with students were led by Nathalie Anderson, 
published poet and alumna, and David Barton, published 
poet and Assistant Professor of English at Agnes Scott, as 
well as visiting teachers. Prizes of $100 each were awarded 
for the best short story and the best poem submitted for 
the contest by Georgia college student writers. This was 
the seventh consecutive year that the Festival has been 
presented by the Department of English at Agnes Scott. 

In the area of the natural sciences, the chemistry 
departments of Agnes Scott College and Georgia State 
University offered undergraduate chemistry majors the 
opportunity this past summer to conduct research with 
faculty members. Directed by Professor Marion Clark, 
Kenan Professor of Chemistry at Agnes Scott, this 
undergraduate Research Participation Program, funded 
by a grant from the National Science Foundation, gave our 
students the opportunity to experience full-time research 
activity in the company of professional scientists and thus 
to discover whether or not they were seriously interested 
in scientific research. In addition to materials and overhead 
expenses, the program provided a $900 stipend for each 
student for the ten-week session. Agnes Scott's Department 
of Chemistry is one of a very few in Georgia which has 

been accepted for the National Science Foundation's 
Undergraduate Research Participation Program. This 
recent grant was the fifth which Agnes Scott and Georgia 
State have received for this cooperative summer program. 

New in the Department of Art this year was a print- 
making laboratory described by Professor of Art Leland 
Staven as "one of the best equipped in any college in the 
Southeast." The laboratory boasts three motorized presses, 
two vacuum-operated silk screen machines, a photographj 
darkroom, and numerous drying racks. Students in print- 
making courses learn basic etching and silk screening 
techniques as well as photography processes which can be 
used in combination with etching and silk screening. 

For the second successive year the faculty held a most 
enjoyable and productive retreat during the winter term, 
this time at Pine Isle on the shores of Lake Lanier near 
Gainesville. This year's theme was "Building a Great 
Faculty," and some 75 faculty members met for a 
weekend of lively discussion in a friendly and informal 
atmosphere which allowed time also for meals together, a 
Saturday evening party, and a Sunday morning chapel 
service. From this second annual faculty retreat, as from 
the first, came a number of productive ideas for the future 
as well as an increased sense of mutual appreciation and 
friendship among colleagues. A third retreat is planned 
for the winter term of 1979. 

The close of this academic year brought the retirement 
from active duty of Assistant Professor of Mathematics 
Ronald B. Wilde after thirteen years of service to the 
College. Mr. Wilde was a popular teacher and an active 
member of the College community. By vote of the Board 
of Trustees at the spring meeting he was granted 
emeritus status. 

The recruiting of sufficient numbers of qualified student 
continues to be a top priority at Agnes Scott. It is pleasant 
to report, therefore, that this fall's entering class will 
be slightly larger than that which entered in September, 
1977. We are encouraged, too, by last year's retention 
figures for upperclassmen. For example. Dean of Students 
Martha Kirkland reported at the spring meeting of the 
Board of Trustees that as of last May 10 over 84% 
of the students eligible for return in September had 
re-registered. She reported further that the 1978 graduating 
class of 1 10 seniors was 72% as large as the freshman 
class which entered in 1974 — a figure far above the 
national average. Despite these encouraging figures, 
recruiting and enrollment remain major challenges for 
the entire College community. To be sure, the Office of 
Admissions and the Faculty Admissions Committee are 
leaders in our efforts to enroll and retain students, 
but success in this vital work is dependent upon all 
sectors of the College family: students and faculty, 
administrators and trustees, and alumnae. We continue 
to intensify our recruiting activities with new publications 
and enlarged mailing lists, greater efforts in bringing 
prospective students to the campus, and more involvement 
of alumnae groups in recruiting throughout the country. 
For example, the Admissions Office and the Student 
Admissions Representatives sponsored last November an 
"Advance" for junior and senior high school students 
considering Agnes Scott as a possible college choice. 
The largest group ever to attend an event of this kind at 
the College, 166 students, came to the campus from 


ven states and Venezuela to take an advanced look 
;ollege classes and dormitory life. They met faculty 
mbers from every department, as well as the directors 
admissions, financial aid, and career planning; discussed 
ious aspects of "advances in self-awareness" in clusters 
by faculty, students, and alumnae; toured "Atlanta 
night" on buses; and found free tickets available for 
Atlanta Symphony, the Blackfriars production, or an 
anta Hawks basketball game. The final event of the 
dvance" was an informal question and answer session 
h the President after which the prospective students 
re invited to visit the President's home. The "Advance" 
1 be repeated in the coming year. Among new 
jlications aimed primarily at prospective students 
. most attractive full-color brochure describing briefly 
Agnes Scott campus and the Atlanta community

Idings and a map of the Atlanta area with directions 
reaching the College. (Copies of this brochure are 
lilable on request to my office or the Office of 

Vith respect to overall College enrollment, we have 
ceeded in the past few years in halting the progressive 
iline in enrollment and stabilizing it in the mid-500's 
hout sacrificing academic quality. This year's entering 
5S, for example, contains six National Merit Scholars 
A'ell as Air Force and Navy R.O.T.C. scholarship 
iners. While we are most encouraged by the continuing 
h quality of entering classes at Agnes Scott, we are 
; satisfied with the results of our efforts toward 
reasing numbers. We are continuing our efforts in 
ry way consistent with maintaining traditional standards 
h academic and personal. The active participation of 
mnae in these efforts is most important. 

' am sorry to report the resignation of our Director 
Admissions Mrs. Ann Rivers Hutcheson '59, effective 
i past July 1. Following her marriage last year, Mrs. 
tcheson found that her growing obligations to her 
lily at a critical time in their lives made her decision 
:essary. She has rendered outstanding service to Agnes 
itt as Director of Admissions since 1973, developing 
lost capable staff which, under her leadership, has 
ried out an energetic and intensive admissions program 
tnusually difficult times for all private colleges. 
Qes Scott remains greatly in her debt. 

\s a successor to Ann Rivers Hutcheson, Judith Maguire 
idel '73 was appointed Director of Admissions effective 
y 1, 1978. We were most fortunate to have on our 
nissions staff a person of outstanding capabilties and 
)erience to succeed Mrs. Hutcheson. Mrs. Tindel joined 
admissions staff in 1973, following her graduation 
m Agnes Scott, and was appointed Assistant Director 
Admissions in 1976. Her exceptional personal qualities 
1 devotion to Agnes Scott are enhanced by unusual 
;rgy and organizing ability. She is already hard at work, 
i I am confident that she and her staff will continue 
the splendid tradition of Ann Rivers Hutcheson 
d the late Laura Steele '37. 

Our efforts in admissions and retention have been 
;atly aided by the very capable work of our new Director 
Financial Aid, Bonnie Brown Johnson '70, who 
umed her duties only last year. Already Mrs. Johnson 
i brought to our financial aid program new enthusiasm 

and standards of professional performance. Today over 
70% of our students receive some form of financial 
assistance, and our financial aid budget exceeds one-half 
million dollars. 

Another office which receives increasing attention 
from our students and planners each year is the Office 
of Career Planning. Agnes Scott students, like their sister 
students everywhere, are showing more interest in 
opportunities and careers in business, especially 
in those areas hitherto virtually closed to them. As a 
consequence, the scope of our career planning activities 
has been extended with corresponding increases in 
personnel, facilities, and budget. In July of this year 
Mrs. Kathleen K. Mooney succeeded Miss lone Murphy 
as Director of Career Planning, and Miss Murphy assumed 
new duties as Coordinator, Alumnae Services, Office of 
Career Planning. A graduate of Notre Dame College 
of St. John's University in New York, Mrs. Mooney also 
holds a master's degree in political science from Syracuse 
University and comes to Agnes Scott from Bryn Mawr 
College where she held the position of Assistant Director 
of Career Planning and Administrator of the Summer 
Institute for Women in Higher Education Administration. 

Our career planning programs are by no means limited 
to undergraduate students, and each year greater numbers 
of alumnae and Atlanta area women avail themselves 
of our services. One of the most successful of the past 
year's activities was a workshop conducted by Mr. Richard 
Irish, made possible through the generous gift of an 
alumna. Entitled "How to Hire Yourself an Employer," 
the workshop was open to Atlanta area women but limited 
to 50 persons. Almost three times that number applied, 
and of the actual participants 24 were alumnae and one 
was an undergraduate. 

Our Carnegie Administrative Intern this year. Miss 
Fatma Kassamali, was assigned to the Officer of Career 
Planning; and her project for the year was the preparation 
of a Career Planning Manual. It should be of great 
help in the future to those seeking to use the facilities 
of the Career Planning Office. An innovation during 
the year was a career newsletter which was made available 
to all students. Placed in the residence halls for 
distribution, the publication featured job outlook 
information, summer and part-time job opportunities, 
and related information. 

In the area of student life and student activities, the 
year was a busy and exciting one indeed. At the beginning 
of her annual report to me, Dean of Students Martha 
Kirkland wrote, "If ever I plan to retire in order to write 
the proverbial novel, this would be the year." That 
introductory sentence was followed by a straightforward 
and comprehensive summary of student activities: crises 
and problems as well as joys and accomplishments. 
In other areas of this report, especially in the listing 
of the year's highlights, a number of these developments 
are mentioned. Suffice it to say here that Dean Kirkland 
concluded her report with the statement that the most 
enjoyable part of being the Dean of Students at Agnes 
Scott continues to be "the opportunity to work with 
students . . . and the joy of working with my staff." 
The student reaction to her year's work was happily 
expressed by a "Dean of Students Appreciation Day" 
this past spring, when students feted the Dean and her 


staff with a variety of activities reflecting their appreciation 
of her concern for them. 

I have mentioned above the gratifying decrease this past 
year in the number of students transferring or dropping 
out. As one evidence of this fact, Assistant Dean of 
Students Mollie Merrick '57 reports that during the 
1977-78 year transcripts were sent to other colleges for 
75 students. Of those 75, 37 are returning to Agnes Scott 
and 38 are transferring or dropping out. In contrast are 
comparable figures for 1976-77, when 54 out of 90 
students sending transcripts to other colleges left from a 
student body which was slightly larger. Such figures, 
I believe, are evidence of the active and individual concern 
shown for our students not only by the Dean of Students 
and the Dean of Faculty and their dedicated staffs 
but also by virtually all who teach and serve in other 
ways at Agnes Scott. 

On assuming my duties here five years ago, I expressed 
the hope that "Agnes Scott can become recognized 
increasingly as one of the chief cultural centers of the 
Atlanta area." I believe we are continuing to make progress 
toward that goal, as the following selective listing of 
"highlights" will indicate. Again it is worth noting that 
the great majority of these events, plus many not listed 
here, were open to our neighbors and friends in Decatur 
and Greater Atlanta.

Again under the creative and efficient leadership of 
Alumnae Association President Mary Duckworth 
Gellerstedt '46 and Director of Alumnae Affairs 
Virginia Brown McKenzie '47 the Alumnae Association 
enjoyed another memorable year. My admiration for our 
alumnae throughout the world increases with each year of 
my service at Agnes Scott. Their loyalty and concern for 
the College are evidenced in numerous ways, but their 
own lives and achievement and service are the most 
telling testimony to the quality of the educational 
experience each of their succeeding classes has found 
at Agnes Scott. In the past year I have enjoyed individual 
visits with them in many places, and I have met and 
spoken with them more formally not only in Atlanta and 
Decatur but also in Columbia, South Carolina; Jackson, 
Mississippi; Memphis; Florence, South Carolina; Chapel 
Hill (The Triangle Club: Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh); 
and Abingdon, Virginia (The Tri-Cities Club). 

One of the year's highlights, especially from a national 
viewpoint, was the meeting at Agnes Scott of alumnae 
association presidents and directors of twelve leading 
women's colleges throughout the country. On Alumnae 
Day. April 22, some 650 returning alumnae gathered for 
lunch in the dining hall after individual class reunion 
meetings and the annual meeting of the Alumnae 
Association. At the meeting Outstanding Alumnae Awards 
were presented to Page Ackerman '33 (Distinguished 
Career), to Bertha Merrill Holt '38 (Community Service), 
and to Betty Lou Houck Smith '35 (Service to Agnes 

Under the capable directorship of Sylvia Williams 
Ingram '52, Alumnae Association Chairman for 
Continuing Education, a number of alumnae enjoyed 
visiting historic sites in Charleston, South Carolina, and 
Thomasville, Georgia, during the year. George and 
Evangeline Papageorge '28 led a most enthusiastic group 
of alumnae to Greece and the Aegean in May. 

At the end of this session, Mrs. Ela Curry, for 16 
years assistant to former Dean of Students Carrie 
Scandrett and in recent years hostess in the Anna Young 
Alumnae House, retired after more than 22 years of 
efficient and gracious service to the College. Beloved 
by all on the campus, Mrs. Curry was known to thousands 
of visitors to the Alumnae House for her indefatigable 
energy, unfailing courtesy, and warm hospitality. She 
will be missed.

With the end of this academic year, Mary Gellerstedt's 
term as President of the Alumnae Association came to 
an end, and she begins her term as an alumna trustee. 
She has been succeeded by Celia "Cissie" Spiro Aidinoff 
(Mrs. M. Bernard) '51 of New York. Cissie Aidinoff, the 
first non-Southerner to serve as President of the national 
Alumnae Association, has been active in alumnae affairs 
and in civic affairs in New York City. I look forward 


to working with Cissie and her national alumnae officers 
in the coming two years. 

Again in 1977-78 alumnae contributions to the Agnes 
Scott Fund were a key factor in a balanced operating 
budget for the year. Almost 3, 1 00 alumnae (about 35 % ) 
contributed approximately $378,000 to the Agnes Scott 
Fund, which totaled just under $1,100,000. While the 
number of donors fell short of last year's record of over 
3,500, it represents a net gain in the past two years of 
almost 400 donors or an increase from 30% to 35% of 
our approximately 8,900 "active" alumnae. (It should be 
recalled that last year's dramatic jump in number of 
donors was largely attributable to our offering the new 
Alumnae Directory to all givers.) Again we are deeply 
grateful not only to our donors but to the hundreds 
of Class Chairmen and Agents of the Fund whose efforts 
made possible its success. 

As in the past, Agnes Scott received this year the financial 
support of over a thousand other friends — individuals, 
corporations, foundations — support which has enabled 
us to continue our strong programs and to strengthen 
our facilities and resources. The acompanying table 
indicates the general sources of these gifts and the areas 
to which they were allocated in 1977-78. Space forbids 
the individual acknowledgment here of all our gifts, but it 
is our custom to acknowledge each one personally, and 
we are deeply grateful for all such expressions of 
confidence in Agnes Scott. A number of gifts and 
grants are worthy of special mention, however, and I 
am glad to record them here. From an anonymous 
foundation we received two handsome grants totaling 
over $315,000 to aid in the renovation of Buttrick Hall. 
A second anonymous foundation contributed $20,000 
for scholarships. During the year we qualified for the 
generous challenge grant of $75,000 from the Kresge 
Foundation to be applied to the Buttrick Hall renovation 
project. Our annual share of the contributions made 
by Georgia business firms t6 the Georgia Foundation 
for Independent Colleges was $36,498. The Charles 
Loridans Foundation added $25,000 to the Adeline Arnold 
Loridans Chair of French. From the Arthur Vining Davis 
Foundations we received a second $25,000 to complete 
their grant in support of the McCain Library renovation. 
The International Business Machines Corporation made 
a grant of $15,000 for Career Planning. From the John 
and Mary Franklin Foundation came $10,000, the first 
third of a grant for audiovisual equipment. A new music 
scholarship was established by the Presser Foundation. 

From the estate of the late Laura Steele '37, long-time 
Registrar and Director of Admissions at Agnes Scott, 
we received a most generous bequest in excess of $158,000. 
Appropriate use of the Laura Steele Memorial Endowment 
Fund is now under consideration by the Board of Trustees. 
From the estate of Helen B. Longshore, aunt of Jackie 
Pfarr Michael '53, we received $52,000 for scholarships. 
Gifts from Miss Annie Tait Jenkins '14, for the Jenkins 
Loan Fund, totaled $16,000. Professor Emeritus Ferdinand 
Warren, former chairman of the Department of Art, 
has given 34 of his fine paintings to the permanent 
collection of the College. 

Under Vice President Lee Barclay's direction, 
improvements in our business and personnel operations 
have continued, and we have begun the next major 

project in our program of physical plant renovation: 
the modernization of faculty offices and classrooms in 
Buttrick Hall. This project, a most ambitious one, involves 
an overhaul of the heating and cooling systems as well 
as new lighting, new furnishings, and facilities for new 
audiovisual equipment. During the past summer, it becam 
apparent that the work could not be completed until 
well into the coming academic year, and other spaces 
for classrooms and faculty offices had to be found. The 
leadership of Dean Gary and the fine spirit displayed 
by our administrative officers and maintenance staff 
throughout long hours of extra work cannot be praised 
too highly. Substitute facilities have been arranged, 
including new quarters for the bookstore and the post 
office in the former lower dining hall. Barring further 
unforeseen complications, the "new" Buttrick Hall 
should be ready for use before the end of the current 
academic year. 

We were sorry to lose our capable Director of Physical 
Plant, Mr. Jack Hug, who left in February to assume 
a similar position at California State University- 
Northridge. We were most fortunate to secure as his 
successor Mr. Vaughan W. Black, whose experience has 
included four years on the staff of Lesley College, 
Cambridge, Massachusetts, and seventeen years with 
the First Church of Christ, Scientist, and the Christian 
Science Monitor Publishing House in Boston. Mr. Black's 
training has been wide and varied, including Armed Forcf 
schools and the Franklin Technical Institute. The energy 
and tact with which he has assumed his duties here 
have already had salutary effects upon his staff. 

This was the fifth successive summer in which Agnes 
Scott was host to a variety of cultural, educational, 
and religious conferences. It is gratifying to report that, 
in terms of income and operation, the 1978 summer was 
our best to date. 

The College suffered a grievous loss in the death on 
January 30 of our senior trustee. Miss Mary Wallace Kirk 
'1 1. For sixty-one years. Miss Kirk was an active 
member of the Board of Trustees, serving her alma 
mater with characteristic energy and devotion. A woman 
of great gifts — in writing, painting, and etching — she 
combined pride in the past and its great traditions with a 
courageous and creative faith in the future. Her life 
exemplified her ideals and her breadth of interests: she 
read widely, but she also wrote; she was a patron of 
the arts but she herself was an accomplished artist; 
she traveled throughout her life, but she always returned 
to her beloved "Locust Hill," her family's home in 
Tuscumbia, Alabama, for over a century. From her 
graduation through her last Board meeting on January 
20, just ten days before her death, she was an active and 
generous supporter of the College. Her impress upon 
the College during her life was great, and through her 
intelligent generosity it will continue for many 
years to come. 

The College lost another devoted supporter in the 
death on May 23 of beloved Trustee-Emeritus Lawrence 
L. Gellerstedt, father of present trustee Lawrence 
Gellerstedt, Jr. A widely respected member of the 
Atlanta business and civic community, Mr. Gellerstedt 
was a most active and capable trustee of Agnes Scott 
from 1944-1970.

The July issue of the President's Newsletter carried 
inouncement of the election of five new persons to the 
oard of Trustees together with brief biographical sketches 

each. I shall therefore merely identify them here and

know they bring fresh strengths and perspectives. They

Our gratitude and good wishes go to two valued trustees 
ho retired this year and were elected Trustees-Emeriti

For the Perrys, July 1, 1978, marked the completion 
f five years of service at Agnes Scott. As I noted at the 
eginning of this report, they have been good years for us, 
ad we are grateful to the many colleagues and other 
lends who have made them so. My legacy from Wallace 
Iston was a rich one indeed: an understanding and 
jpportive governing Board, a most capable faculty and 
dministrative staff, a gifted and responsive student body, 
)yal and generous alumnae, a handsome campus and 
lant — the whole soundly administered and financed. 

The past five years — 1973-78 — have hardly been 
alcyon times for higher education, especially for 

independent liberal arts colleges like Agnes Scott. Yet 
this college has been singularly blessed in many ways; 
and, thanks to the support and service of many, these have 
been years of lasting accomplishment for Agnes Scott. 
While I take personal pride in the overall record of these 
years, let me emphasize that our achievements are the 
result of the imagination, hard work, and good will 
of Agnes Scott faculty, students, administrative officers, 
trustees, and alumnae. Through difficult times they have 
displayed intelligent loyalty and patience, a high sense 
of collegial responsibility, a constructive resort to unselfish 
compromise for the common good. 

Through my annual reports, I have sought to chronicle 
the chief events of these five years; and in other college 
publications and records I hope we have compiled 
a detailed history of this period in the life of the College. 
Our indefatigable archivist, Professor Emeritus W. Edward 
McNair, is writing the history of the College, a volume 
which I am sure will be both readable and comprehensive. 
I have resisted the temptation to lengthy reminiscence 
in this fifth annual report, but I do wish to mention briefly 
what appear to me, without the benefit yet of much 
perspective, to be significant developments of these 
five years. 

The past five years have seen no change in the essential 
purpose and mission of the College. Agnes Scott remains 
firm in its commitment to the maintenance of a teaching 
and learning community of high academic and moral 
quality dedicated to Christian values and the disciplined 
development of the whole person. Set forth briefly in the 
"Articles of Incorporation" of the College, our institutional 
purpose is published in more specific form in the 
College catalogue. 

The administrative organization of the College has 
been altered to reduce the number of officers reporting 
directly to the President. Today five top administrative 
officers — the Dean of the Faculty, the Dean of Students, 
the Vice President for Development, the Vice President 
for Business Affairs, and the Director of Admissions — 
report directly to the President, with all other officers 
reporting through one of the five chief administrators. 
The Director of Alumnae Affairs, as the official 
representative of 9,000 alumnae, has a weekly 
conference with the President. With respect to faculty 
authority, the former Academic Council consisting 
of the President, the Deans, the Registrar, and the 
chairmen of academic departments, has been abolished 
and replaced by a system of faculty committees 
responsible to the faculty as a whole and operating 
under faculty bylaws. The faculty thus enjoys 
considerably more authority in the planning and 
administration of the academic program; and all 
faculty members, with the exception of instructors 
in their first year, now have a voting voice in determining 
academic policies and procedures. Operating through 
its various committees, the faculty has formulated policies 
and procedures for such faculty concerns as appointment, 
promotion, tenure, sabbaticals, and grievances. 

The past five years have seen numerous changes in 
the educational program, chiefly in the direction of greater 
flexibility and increased opportunities for students 
interested in business and professional careers. Innovations, 


including programs and courses both on and off campus, 
have been supplements to, rather than substitutes for, 
our time-tested liberal arts curriculum. For example, our 
summer programs abroad, conducted for credit by 
our own faculty members, have been increased; summer 
programs in this country now include a desert biology 
seminar and a marine biology seminar. Cooperative 
programs with the American University in Washington 
and the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta 
are now available, the latter including five-year dual 
degree programs in engineering, computer science, and 
management, and four-year Air Force and Navy R.O.T.C. 
programs leading to a commission in these services. 
Opportunities for internships, for independent study, and 
for double majors have been improved and expanded. 
The Departments of Art and Music furnish good examples 
of these changes; for example, musical instruction is 
now available in a large number of instruments as well 
as in voice, and the Department of Art has recently 
installed one of the most advanced print-making facilities 
in the Southeast. In another area, course work in 
economics and mathematics has been expanded to include 
accounting, computer science, marketing, and the new 
"Preparatory Program for Business." 

A "Return to College Program" now provides the 
opportunity for qualified women of all ages to take 
college courses and to work toward an Agnes Scott degree. 
All "Return to College" students are enrolled in regular 
college courses and meet the same requirement for the 
degree as other undergraduates. Students in the program 
are not subject to the same minimum course loads nor are 
they expected to complete the degree in the usual four 
years. Academic and personal counseling is highly 
individualized while application procedures for admission 
and financial aid have been streamlined. The program 
has been well-received by faculty and regular students and 
attracts a significant number of applicants throughout 
each school year. 

The number of full-time faculty members has decreased 
slightly since 1973, but visiting and part-time personnel 
have kept the full-time equivalent strength of the faculty 
at approximately 75. Over four-fifths of the faculty 
now hold the highest earned degree; and the ratio of 
students to faculty stands today at some 7.5 to 1, perhaps 
the most favorable of that of any liberal arts college 
in the country. Faculty turnover is low, but a number of 
visiting teachers and scholars bring fresh ideas and 
stimulation each year. For example, the Wallace 
McPherson Alston Visiting Professorship in Bible and 
Religion makes possible one or more teaching visitors in 
that department annually. 

Faculty and staff salaries have been increased each 
year. Fringe benefits have been extended to all employees 
and expanded to include increased retirement income, 
total disability benefits, group life insurance, and better 
health coverage. Our levels of faculty compensation, in 
relation to those of comparable colleges, have accordingly 

During the past five years an extensive planned program 
of campus renovation has been under way. New wiring 
and new outdoor lighting have been installed throughout 
the campus, and identifying and directional signs have 
been erected. Winship Dormitory and the auditoriums in

Pont, confer. 

Presser Hall have been air-conditioned. McCain Library 
has been completely renovated. Buttrick Hall is now in 
process of an extensive renovation. Dana Fine Arts 
Building has been renovated, and a new print-making 
facility has been installed. Repairs to the roofs of most 
buildings have been undertaken although much work still 
remains to be done in this area. The overall plan calls for 
the systematic renovation of all major College buildings 
and a general refurbishing of campus grounds, including 
roads and walkways as well as trees and other outdoor 

In the spring and summer of 1976 a professional 
planning study of the campus and the surrounding 
neighborhood was conducted for the College. Results of 
this study were most encouraging for present and future 
planning, and some of the suggestions made have already 
been implemented. For example, we have begun to sell 
off gradually some of the residential properties owned by 
the College in the area immediately surrounding the 
campus. Priority in such sales is given first to the present 
occupants and then to Agnes Scott employees. Thus the 
College has been able to maintain the stability and 
academic tone of its immediate neighborhood while 
restoring to the Decatur tax rolls a number of residential 
properties. With fewer houses to maintain, the College 
is now in the position to take better care of the houses 
remaining under its ownership. 

Since the appointment of a new Dean of Students in 
1974, there have been a number of organizational and 
procedural changes made in the offices reporting to 
her (Career Planning, Financial Aid, Health Services), 
and the relations of her Office with student government 
organizations have undergone marked improvement. The 
Office of Career Planning has been expanded in terms 
both of personnel and budget, and it is now in a position 
to respond even more effectively to the growing interest 
of college women in preparation for careers. Our financial 
aid programs have been expanded in all areas: grants, 
loans, and campus jobs; and administrative improvements 
have been effected under a new Director of Financial Aid. 
Since 1973-74, our financial aid budget has doubled; today 
over 70% of our students receive some type of assistance, 
and the annual budget is in excess of half a million dollars. 


s sum does not include monies received from federal, 
e, and private sources. 

tudent government remains a strong and responsible 
; of College life, and there is a high degree of 
peration between College administrative officials and 
officers and agencies of student government. The 
or System continues to receive widespread approval 
support. Customs and regulations governing campus 
ial life at Agnes Scott have traditionally been 
servative, but a number of changes have occurred 
he past five years which have recognized students' 
diness and ability to govern themselves in all areas of 
ipus life. The student body has been most responsive 
responsible in handling these new freedoms. At the 
le time, security systems throughout the dormitories 
e been improved without infringing on students' 
:dom of movement. 

tudent recruiting and reteniton continue to be our 
jor challenge. Despite energetic and imaginative efforts

immediate aim continues to be a student body of some 
). Student retention has remained stable, with an 
rease in this past year, and the Return to College 
gram has grown each year. On the national scene, the 
mlarity of coeducation and the current concern with 
ational studies as opposed to liberal arts programs 
tear to be our chief obstacles in recruiting new students, 
eeking to raise enrollment figures, however, we have 
intained admissions standards as well as the integrity 
1 quality of our overall academic program. Recent 
dies indicate that our strong academic reputation and 

unusually favorable faculty-student ratio are the chief 
tors in attracting new students to Agnes Scott. Under 
leadership of the Office of Admissions, we are 
ibling our efforts to attract more students to Agnes 
)tt not only through improved recruiting procedures but 
ough enriched academic programs and the greater 
olvement of students, faculty, and alumnae in our 
ruiting and retention efforts. 

n a period of continuing inflation and economic 
certainty, it is good to be able to report that Agnes Scott 

continued its tradition of sound financial operation 
i balanced budgets. Since 1972-73 we have made 
nparatively modest annual additions to our endowment, 

income from endowment has doubled. Annual 
erating expenses have increased from approximately 

120,000 in 1973-74 to almost $5,100,000 in 1977-78 
ss than 24% ). In the same period student tuition and 
;s have increased by $1,000, to $4,450 in 1977-78, a 
ure which continues to be the lowest among some 

nty leading American women's colleges. As the cost 
quality college education has escalated, we have taken 
ps to see that our necessary charges do not put an 
nes Scott education beyond the reach of students of 
)dest means. For example, while our charges have in- 
ased some 28% in the last five years, our financial aid 
dget has almost doubled. We are still able to meet 
0% of the officially indicated need of every student 
ered admission. 

As indicated elsewhere, faculty and staff salaries have 
in increased annually, and our fringe benefit package 

for all employees is now a most creditable and competitive 

Without the organization and intensified efforts of a 
formal fund raising campaign, the Agnes Scott Fund, i.e. 
the annual total of gifts and bequests from all sources, 
has averaged over a million dollars a year since 1973-74. 
In this same period there have been gratifying 
improvements in alumnae giving, both in dollars and in 
percentage of alumnae contributors; and foundations, 
corporations, and other friends — locally and nationally — 
have continued generous in their annual support. Great 
credit must go to Dr. Paul McCain, Vice President for 
Development, to his hard working staff, and to the 
director and officers of the Alumnae Association and the 
hundreds of Class Agents who make possible each year 
the success of the Agnes Scott Fund. 

The foregoing brief summary will serve, I hope, as 
reminder that the past five years have seen a number of 
significant developments but that much remains to be 
done. To literally thousands of men and women of the 
Agnes Scott family — faculty and students, administrative 
officers and staff, trustees and alumnae — I am indebted 
for the support and dedication, the imagination and 
planning, and the hard work which have brought about 
the achievements of these five years. I am glad to record 
here my admiration for these fellow workers and my 
gratitude for their loyal labors. 


The private residential liberal arts college in America 
may well be facing in the 1980's the most difficult decade 
in its 300-year history. Current educational, economic, 
and demographic forces are working against it today, and 
projections and prospects for the future are even less 
favorable. For example, three-quarters of today's college 
students are in public, i.e. tax-supported, institutions, 
where fees are much less for the student if not for the 
tax-payer. Inflation and the scarcity of jobs have 
intensified the continuing concern of students — and 
their parents — for vocational training and the acquisition 
of marketable skills. Population projections indicate a 
significant drop nationally in the number of 18-year olds, 
beginning in the early 1980's. Not a rosy overall picture 
for private liberal arts colleges like Agnes Scott! 

For more than two centuries, however, the American 
liberal arts college has shown itself to be a tough and 
hardy breed. From its earliest years forecasts of its 
imminent demise have been issued periodically; but it has 
managed to survive and, in many cases, to flourish. A 
recent and authoritative statistical study* of the educational 
and financial condition of private higher education in the 
United States concludes that, although most presidents 
of private colleges and universities are optimistic about 

*Private Higher Education: Fourth Annual Report on Financial 
and Educational Trends in the Independent Sector of American 
Higher Education, by W. John Minter and Howard R. Bowen 
(Washington: Association of American Colleges, 1978) 


the future, "the proportion of institutions in a precarious 
position" continues to increase. The more selective liberal 
arts colleges appear to be in a stronger position, in terms 
of "holding steady" or even "gaining ground," than their 
less selective counterparts. But all too often the private 
institutions are managing to hold their own and maintain 
their quality at the cost "of a slow and seemingly 
inexorable using up of capital ... in the form of drawing 
down reserves or of using for current operations gifts 
which should have gone for endowments." 

While this precarious situation is not yet true of Agnes 
Scott, we are well aware of possible problems ahead; and 
our planning must heed these signs of impending troubles 
and include strong and positive actions to avoid them. 
In this connection let me say that the report of the Long 
Range Planning Committee submitted to the Board this 
fall contains specific proposals for securing the resources 
Agnes Scott will need to meet successfully the demands 
of the next quarter-century. 

This period of crisis for American higher education has 
seen, understandably, a proliferation of research studies 
as to its nature and effects. The chief conclusions reached 
by most of these studies appear to be: (1 ) that our 
smaller, private, liberal arts colleges are facing increasing 
competition from large, tax-supported, professionally and 
vocationally oriented institutions; and yet (2) that these 
same small liberal arts colleges are offering today, in terms 
of personal satisfaction and achievement, the most effective 
college experience to be found in all of American 
higher education. 

The research conducted over the past ten years by 
Alexander Astin*, of the University of California at Los 
Angeles, embodies perhaps the most exhaustive and 
striking reinforcement of these conclusions. The product of 
a longitudinal study called the Cooperative Institutional 
Research Program (CIRP), Dr. Astin's study was the 
joint project of the American Council on Education and 
the University of California at Los Angeles. Its 
conclusions are drawn from data gathered from over 
200,000 students in more than 300 institutions, including 
follow-up surveys ranging from one to ten years after 
college entry. The intent of this long-term research, the 
largest of its kind ever conducted, was to evaluate the 
effect of varying college experiences. 

The findings of Astin's study which are of chief concern 
to colleges like Agnes Scott may be summarized as 
follows: the most effective undergraduate experience, in 
terms of personal satisfaction and development and of 
career implementation, is that offered today by small, 
private, single-sex liberal arts colleges with high standards 
and a religious heritage. Certainly these are findings from 
which Agnes Scott and similar colleges can take 
satisfaction and fresh courage in seeking to evaluate our 
proper programs and purpose in these difficult times. 

Yet, on reflection, there is a profound and disturbing 
irony, a wry paradox, in the conclusions reached today in 
the studies of such educational researchers and analysts 

as Minter and Bowen, and Alexander Astin. At the very 
time when we are informed of the continuing decline in 
popularity — among prospective students and their 
parents — of the small, independent, liberal arts college, 
and warned of its possible early demise, current studies 
indicate with increasing evidence that this same small, 
independent liberal arts college offers the most effective 
and satisfying educational experience yet devised in the 
United States. 

In the light of this paradoxical situation, all of us who 
believe in Agnes Scott (and colleges like it), all of us who 
have reason to be grateful for its benefits and its influenc( 
have a clear and urgent duty: to spread the word of what 
Agnes Scott has to offer young women of ability and 
character and to convince more of these young women 
of the satisfactions and values — tangible and intangible, 
immediate and long-term — of an Agnes Scott education 

Four years ago, in reporting to the Board of Trustees 
after my first year at Agnes Scott, I listed five key areas 
of priority concern in my hopes and plans for the 
College. They were ( 1 ) an educational program, in 
keeping with our Christian heritage, which combines 
traditional liberal arts strengths and disciplines with 
flexible and imaginative opportunities for young women 
interested in further training and in careers; (2) an 
enlarged student body of 650-700 undergraduates with 
no sacrifice of academic quality; (3) faculty and staff 
salaries and benefits commensurate with Agnes Scott's 
stature and resources; (4) a student financial aid progran 
sufficient to maintain a student body of character and 
ability regardless of means; (5) equipment, physical 
plant, and grounds adequate for a superior educational 
program and for efficiency, comfort, and beauty.

s, mortar, well-trimmed walks, and modern fa- 
s draw new students to a college; but once they've 
litted themselves to four years, are graduated, 
eave the campus, their memories are not of build- 
but of people — their peers and professors and 
a kind administrator — and ideas — concepts 
t or practiced by those people. And so it is, when 
lae come back to a college, they search out those 
ssors and administrators whose thinking and car- 
lade impresses on their lives, 
e Alumnae Association has just sponsored the 
th annual Alumnae Council at the College. Insti- 
ls of higher education all over the country are 
ng their alumnae volunteers back to campuses to 
ne reacquainted. Our belief is that these coun- 
s will return to their communities with renewed 
r to extol the value of a liberal arts education at 
all independent women's college, named Agnes 
. There were workshops, speeches, tours of the 
us, and lunch in Winship and on the terrace; 
lone of these were as significant to the alumnae 
:re their contacts with students, faculty, and ad- 
trators — the people of the College. Attending 

classes with today's students and visiting with mem- 
bers of the faculty were the highlights of the day. 

Recapturing for a few moments those precious days 
when learning and thinking were our chief occupations, 
and wishing we had then known what we now know 
about life so that we would have availed ourselves to 
a fuller extent of the opportunity to develop our minds, 
we went back to college and sat with the students 
and listened to the wise ones who have spent a life- 
time gathering knowledge. (It mattered not that they 
were in makeshift quarters. Buttrick is being renovated. 
As a temporary expedient, classrooms and faculty of- 
fices are now located in parlors, study rooms, the 
health center — wherever a few students and scholars 
can gather. ) Yes, we're glad to see that the Board of 
Trustees is restoring, preserving, and refurbishing the 
buildings on campus and that they are envisioning new 
facilities that will attract new students (for without 
students the College would no longer exist), but the 
best part of college, to an alumna, is that it is the 
place for learning and thinking and sharing ideas. The 
development of the mind is still the main business at 
Agnes Scott College. 

The college community is 
saddened by the recent deaths 
of two professors. Dr. Marion 
Thomas Clark, Kenan Profes- 
sor of Chemistry and chairman 
of the Department of Chemis- 
try, died September 9, 1978. 

Associate Professor of English, 
Emerita, Annie May Christie 
died September 7. 1978. Tri- 
butes will be published in the

Recognizing that participation in 
drama is an excellent way in which to 
improve pronunciation and conversation 
as well as to create an "esprit de corps," 
we encourage students to act in scenes 
from the plays of Moliere, Anouilh, 
Giraudoux, etc., sometimes for the 
French Club at Agnes Scott, sometimes 
in the language contests at Clemson 
University, where our students have 
twice won first place. In cooperation 
with the Alliance Franc aise d' Atlanta, 
Agnes Scott sponsors the annual visit of 
"Le Treteau de Paris," a theatrical 
company sent from France to tour 
American college campuses, presenting 
classical or modern plays. These 
performances are a boon to the students 
who study the plays in class and can, 
therefore, laugh in the right places! 

We bring to the campus each year one 
or two French films based on literary 
works studied in class, such as Ph&dre, le 
Rouge et le noir, les Mains sales, 
VEtranger. From the "Services 
Culturels" in New Orleans we may 
borrow exhibits of photographs. "La 
Comedie Fran^aise" and "Moliere" 
were two fine exhibits shown in 
connection with Blackfriars' production 
of the Moliere play, Tartuffe. From time 
to time we bring outstanding lecturers to 

Claire Hubert 

class; Germaine Bree on Camus, 
Raphael Molho on Proust, G. Mallary 
Masters on Rabelais, and Paul Verniere 
on the eighteenth century. 

The three modern language 
departments at Agnes Scott sponsor 
annually a drama contest for high school 
students in Georgia. Last spring there 
were students from 14 schools 
participating in the French contest alone. 
Several of these young Sarah Bernhardts 
have, after high school graduation, 
enrolled at Agnes Scott. In fact, it has 
been our hope that these contests would 
attract as future students here the 
"creme de la creme" of Georgia 
language talent. It is frustrating to 
realize, however, that some of the 
richest high school French cream is 

As you know, for many years our 
students have been encouraged to study 
in the summer or during their junior year 
either in France or Canada. There are 
two scholarships available for foreign 
study: one is the Margaret T. Phythian 
Scholarship, established in 1965 in honor 
of Dr. Phythian, former chairman of the 
French department; the other is a 
scholarship given through the Cultural 
Attache in New Orleans to encourage 
the study of French. Bryn Mawr in 

Avignon, Emory in Paris, and L 
Quebec have been the most pop 
summer programs. During the n 
academic session Sweet Briar C 
has enrolled some 25 of our stud 
over the years in their Junior Ye 
France program. The preliminar 
courses in Tours, as well as thos- 
Paris, are taught by French univ 
professors. The students are abl

Beaux-Arts, the Louvre, and tht

experiences which changed me. I

they have reason to be, for their

Through travel I had the good fortune 
to be able to compare France with other 
European countries. One of the beauties 
of the French educational system is the 
extensive periodic holidays, very 
conducive to travel . I was able to go to

Greece, and Yugoslavia, and I marveled

easy to travel in Europe, for the railroad 
system is excellent (and European trains 
are just like they are in movies!) and is 
one of the student"s best friends. 

Each time I would return to Paris from 
one of these "lands unknown,"" I would 
feel a deep sense of coming home. To 
me, that feeling of belonging in Paris was 
one that, at first, 1 was not sure I would 
acquire and is the most precious memory 
I have. While backpacking through 
Europe I made the acquaintance of many 
a friendly face and many a beautiful site, 
but Paris was. and still is. mine. It was 
like being "over the rainbow,"" where all 
is magical and beautiful and where time 
stands still. In fact, one of the students 
wrote a quote on the bulletin board in the 
Sweet Briar office in Paris, which sums 
up the year perfectly; "Toto, I have a 
feeling this isn"t Kansas anymore."' 

A Tribute to Marion Thomas Clark 

By Alice J. Cunningham, 
Mary W. Fox, Julia T. Gary 

The following is an excerpt from the tribute read and adopted at the 
October 6 Agnes Scott Faculty Meeting. 

Marion T. Clark would have been the 
last member of this faculty to have 
wanted his virtues extolled in public, for 
he was a modest and humble man. He 
would have much preferred that we be 
about our business of instilling in 
students, as well as in faculty, a devotion 
to the purposes of Agnes Scott College 
and a genuine love of learning, which

Having received degrees from Emory 
University and the University of 
Virginia, Dr. Clark first was a member of 
the faculties of Oxford College of Emory 

University, Birmingham Southern 
College, and Emory University. In 1960 
he became a member of the Agnes Scott 
community as Professor of Chemistry. 
He was appointed chairman of the 
department in 1973 and was named 
William Rand Kenan, Jr., Professor of 
Chemistry in 1975. 

Dr. Clark's honors included 
membership in Phi Beta Kappa, 
Omicron Delta Kappa, and Sigma Xi. He 
had served in various offices of his 
professional societies , including terms as 
President of the Georgia Academy of 
Science and Chairman of the Georgia 
Section of the American Chemical

affiliations, he was an active member of 
the Glenn Memorial United Methodist

A Tribute to Annie May Christie 

By Judy Promnitz Marine '54 

Renewal depends in some measure on 
motivation, commitment, conviction, 
the values (persons) live by, the things 
that give meaning to their lives . . . The 
renewal of societies and organizations 
can go forward only if someone cares. 

John W. Gardner 

Self-Renewal — The Individual and 

the Innnovatire Society 

Annie May Christie in her life 
embodied the renewal of which John 
Gardner speaks. 

She sparked in students the desire to 
learn and the ability to appreciate good 
literature because her students respected 
and valued her expertise in her field, 
American literature, and because they 
knew that she cared about them, not just 
as students but as human beings in all 
dimensions of existence. 

Personally I was motivated to probe 
deeply through independent study 
supervised by Miss Christie into the 
poetry of Edwin Arlington Robinson. I 

always looked forward to our weekly 
conferences because Miss Christie 
provided me with valuable insights 
through constructive criticism. At the 
same time she was genuinely concerned 
with me as a person in other aspects of 
my life and my family's life, just as she 
was interested in all her students. 

I remember also the many happy 
occasions through the years after 
graduation when we would gather at my 
parents' home for dinner along with 
other of Miss Christie's colleagues who 
also became lifelong friends of my 
family — Margaret Phythian, Leslie 
Gaylord, Llewellyn Wilburn. and 
Margret Trotter. Hence Miss Christie 
was an enjoyable person to be around 
not just in academic settings but in social 
settings as well. 

In addition to helping her students find 
renewal, motivation, and commitment. 
Miss Christie also was continuously 
searching for renewal within herself 
through pursuit of a variety of interests 

and activities. She enjoyed hiking in 
mountains, particularly in Highland; 
North Carolina. She attended plays i 
New York on a number of occasions 
She shared her mother's love of flov 
and had a beautiful flower garden, tt 
fruits of which she shared with her 
friends. She enjoyed shopping and 
luncheon outings. For her the ordin;

George Hayes Revisited 

B\ Jane Tavlor Wliite '42 

Dr. George Passmore Hayes, 81 , 
Professor of English at Agnes Scott for 
39 years, found three things at Agnes 
Scott which influenced his staying there 
for the larger part of his adult life: 
scholastic integrity, the smallness of the 
College and classes so that relationships 
could be closer and more meaningful, 
and third, the religious foundation and 

Those alumnae who were "turned on" 
by George to the joy of learning think of 
his great scholarship and his sharing of 
it. A current professor at Agnes Scott 
said in a talk during Sophomore week- 
end in February 1976, "I pay tribute to 
the man . . . who best embodies for me 
all that I think of when I think of study 
for light and life and joy — a man who by 
his own e.xample encouraged many an 
Agnes Scott student to seek 'the bright 
countenance of truth in/The quiet and 
still air of delightful studies.' I am 
quoting Milton, of course, and I am 
speaking, of course, about Professor 
Emeritus George P. Hayes." 

It began on a country place in 
Pennsylvania, a summer residence for 
the Hayes cousins, where the children 
acted out scenes from Shakespeare's 
plays. In high school George began his 
'German experience." Latin and Greek 
came to mean a great deal with the study 

of Horace and The Odyssey. At 
Swarthmore College and later at 
Harvard, he came to love Chaucer and 

The discovery in college of the New 
York Times and the New Republic was 
his introduction to political and public 
life. Catherine Marshall wrote in 
September 1977, "... how indebted I 
have felt all these years to you and to 
Philip Davidson for the years of careful 
training and critique you gave the 
debating teams. . . 1 would say I gained 
more from my experience on the 
debating team than from any single 
course I took in college." 

His appreciation of art began at 
Swarthmore and was enriched by his 
French wife, Anne Nissiat, who studied 
art in Lyons. French became a fourth 
language when George took courses at 
Grenoble. Together he and Anne read 
the French classics. Three children were 
born of their marriage. Anne died in 

George was involved with boy 
scouting for more than 20 years, 
beginning at the time son Henry became 
a Cub Scout. Three aspects of the 
program interested him: the boys, the 
contact with nature on monthly 
overnight camping trips, and the 
companionship with scouting 


Brought up as a Unitarian Quakei 
always deeply interested in religion 
George wrote his Harvard dissertati 
on one of the early Quakers, Rober 
Barclay. His teaching years at Robe 
College in Constantinople grew out 
missionary interest. Through the ye 
Agnes Scott, he studied mysticism, 
especially the great Mediterranean 
mystics like John of the Cross, St. 
Teresa, and St. Catherine of Genoa 

A Quaker service was held with t 
children every Sunday morning in tl 
home. In addition to a period of silei 
worship, there was Bible reading an 
memorizing, then a question and an: 
time. Later they attended a Quaker 
meeting house when one became 
available, but they still continued th 
home services. After the service, th 
family usually went hiking, walking 
logs, fording brooks, then came hon 

George came to know Edna Gran 
present wife, through her organizinj 
reading groups under his leadership 
Their friendship culminated in niarr 
in 1975 in Christ Church (Episcopal) 
Sea Island. Since then, they have 
worshipped together at St. Philip's i 
Atlanta where he had a deeply 
significant religious experience. He 
been baptized and confirmed in the 
Episcopal Church. 

George and Edna swim every day 
attend plays, movies, and opera. Th 
go to Sea Island once or twice a yea 
to an annual Shakespeare festival in 
Anniston, Alabama. They are currei 
rereading (often aloud) some of the 
classics along with works of Virgini 
Woolf and Kenneth Clark. 

Agnes Scott's yearbook. The 
Silhouette, was dedicated to him in 
and again in 1955. A measure of the 
and appreciation felt by generations 
students for this unique and creativ 
man can be seen in these dedication 
"For helping us see deeper than the 
surface into those values which are 
and lasting." and "... how this mai

(continued on page 12) 

T. S. Eliot once wrote that the 
obligation of the poet is "to find words 
for the inarticulate, to capture those 
feelings which people can hardly even 
feel ... [to make] people comprehend 
the incomprehensible."' And it was to 
accomplish this task that Eliot took a 
traditional poetic device, that of 
landscape imagery, and transformed it 
into a symbol for the intangible, an 
objectification of an emotional or 
spiritual state which Eliot called an 
"objective correlative." 

In her book Landscape as Symbol in 
the Poetry of T. S. Eliot. Nancy Duvall 
Hargrove asks both critic and reader of 
Eliot's poetry to consider his landscape, 
his sense of place, as a major symbol and 
as equally significant as his sense of 
time, his religious and philosophical 
beliefs, and his literary sources. Unlike 
most formalist critics who view a literary 
work as a thing apart, and consequently 
to be judged solely by its organic form 
and content, Hargrove defends the 
position that an understanding of the 
actual settings is crucial to the 
interpretation of Eliot's poetry. She 
argues that without a familiarity with the 
very specific places Eliot uses, 
especially the rather obscure settings of 
Four Quartets, that much of the poetry's 
meaning will be missed or distorted. 

For those who have not visited those 
places that figure dominantly in Eliot's 
landscape — the coast of Massachusetts, 
London's world of commerce, or even 
more specifically. Burnt Norton Manor 
in Gloustershire. England — Hargrove's 
comments help to interpret passages 
containing these specific landscapes. 

As Hargrove points out, Eliot's use of 
landscape closely parallels his own

My Hand My Only Map is a small, 
beautiful hook. No care has been spared 
in its making, and there are no long waits 
between good poems. It is a gem. 

Most important, it is the work of an 
Atlanta poet, a gifted young woman, Nat 
Anderson. It was made possible by a 
Georgia Council for the Arts and 
Humanities grant and published by a 
small Atlanta press. Georgia poetry 
lovers and book collecters should not 
miss this one. 

Included in this small collection is 
"Invitation to the Archaeologist." which 
won the Academy of American Poets 
Award at Emory in 1977. It is a call to an 
archaeologist from inside an ancient 
tomb, a call that is mixed with longing, 
fear that the scientist will not hear, and 
the ancient recognition that we are ruled 
by certain mysteries. 

There are other poems which give 
glimpses of the poet's immediate world, 
poems about family, the power of 
dreams, about a growing sense of self. 

Bob Tauber at Pynyon Press in 
Atlanta designed the book and hand- 
printed 500 copies. Because it is such a 
limited edition, it is hoped that there will 
be a second printing when the demand 
for this book spreads to other areas of 
the country. In the world of small press 
publications, 500 is usually adequate for 
an unknown poet and press to distribute. 
But I would guess that Georgia sales of 
this book will use up the supply before 
New York and Colorado get their 
chance. Gif(i Maritzer Smith

Thompson entertained the entire Bai 
Association annually for many years, a

the lawyers never got the message.

considered a major factor in his lifelon 
"raid on the inarticulate," his wrestlinj 
to prune and curb the English word to 
describe the struggle of the human spiri 
for meaning ("East Coker," V. 179). 
From the desolate setting of The Wastt 
Land where nightingales sing to dirty 
ears and man is a pitifully harried and 
demeaned being, Eliot journeys to a 
landscape in Four QuartetstUal 
symbolizes his own spiritual vision:

which he says:

Glass Exhibit Set for Dalton Galleries 

Harvey K. Littleton's glass sculpture "Progression" 1977. 

H Carolina Glass "78 is the third 
series of biennial off-hand glass 
itions organized by Joan Falconer 
'61 . professor of art at Western 
ina University. CuUowhee, North 
ina. Sixty-two pieces from North 
Una Glass '78 have been chosen by 
lists to comprise the exhibition. 
1 will appear at the Dalton galleries 

of Agnes Scott from February 18-March 
15. 1979. 

The present exhibition gains special 
significance from the participation of 
Harvey K. Littleton, founder of the 
studio glass movement in the United 
States, who recently left his teaching 
position at the University of Wisconsin 
to settle in the mountains of North 

Carolina. In addition to the sculptures by 
Mr. Littleton, the show includes glass in 
a variety of more traditional container 
forms, the work of nine outstanding 
artists from the state, among whom Fritz 
Dreisbach and Mark Peiser are perhaps 
the most widely recognized nationally.

enthusiasm for learning and an uncanny 
knack of transferring his love of learning 
to his students, for whom he had the 
greatest respect and concern. 

As a teacher he was thorough, but

upholding the principles to which he 
ascribed. He was open-minded and 
judicious, but always adamant about 
upholding those principles which he felt 
w ere the foundations of a good 
education and personal integrity. 

Each of us w ho knew Marion Clark 
w as aware that he was a loving and 
caring friend, a devoted husband and 
father, and a Christian man whose every 
action reflected his deep belief in God. 
We are grateful for his presence among 
us and shall treasure the legacy he has 
left to us.

of $555,999. The median is $10,000. 
There are 12 funds in this group of 
$100,000 or more.

Miss Christie's dedication to the 
College was exemplary both in terms of 
the number of years she taught and in 
her commitment to the College — to her 
students, her colleagues, and the 
institution itself. She taught for 37 years 
from 1925-1962 and thus influenced 
hundreds of young women.

Annie May Christie had a vision of 
something worth saving; her life 
reflected this vision. Her legacy then

When I saw that page of Beowulf on the 
cover of the summer Quarterly. I knew 
Jane Pepperdene would be inside, and 
was she ever! Her report on the English 
department is a beautifully handled 
record of an achievement that must 
stand with the very best in the country 
for the last ten years. These are the same 
years in which many formerly fine 
English departments have crumbled into 
fragmented pseudo-studies. They are 
now trying to put themselves together 
again, but once more, by not yielding to 
faddish weakness. Agnes Scott has come 
out ahead. Thanks for printing Jane's 
article. It will be read with wistful envy 
on many a campus.

July 9, I was ordained here at Central 
Presbyterian Church. It was perhaps the 
highest moment of my life. My first 
month of ministry has proven to be both 

demanding and rewarding. Mike, my 
husband, is also on staff here (an 
associate, just as I am) and we are 
excited about our team ministry 
approach. The congregation has 
received us warmly and seems to share 
our enthusiasm. Our sense of call to 
ministry has been confirmed by our 
experience. There is nothing we would 
rather be doing with our lives. 

As I think back on my years at Agne 
Scott, I recall that there were several in 
my class who also felt a sense of call t( 
ministry but feared doors would be 
closed to them as women. For one 
reason or another many gave up their 

I would like to communicate 
somehow, to those who may be where 
was three or four years ago. Yes, it's 
difficult. But it is worth it. Open the 
doors you find closed !

Merle Grubbs Walker 


Bv Richard D. Parrx 

s Scott College for thirteen years, 
1958 until 1971. She received the 
degree from Hollins College and 
graduate work in English at the 
ersity of Virginia. Later she re- 
id an M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard 
■ersity. While at Harvard she mar- 
Andrew J. Walker; they raised two 
hters, Caroline and Dorothy. To- 
the end of this first career, she 
n another as an instructor in the 
;s Scott Department of English. In 
, she was appointed assistant pro- 
)r of philosophy, finally becoming 
:iate professor and chairman of the 

I her students, Mrs. Walker was an 
lectual beacon and an ideal. Stu- 
ts were impressed by two 
acteristics — the compass of her 
vledge and the humility with which 
used it. One effect of her career — 
by no means the most important — is 
number of teaching careers she 
;d found. One of these teachers 

remarked that, in writing Mrs. Walker's 
former students, she found herself ad- 
dressing a lot of people with doctoral 
degrees. Of course, Mrs. Walker's most 
important legacy is that all of her 
students — teachers or not — were in- 
fected with a respect for and enjoyment 
of ideas. 

Merle was not only a teacher, she was 
a thinker whose mind always searched 
and examined. She embodied, in a way 
that few can match, what the Agnes 
Scott statement of purpose calls our 
faith in the life of the mind. Her major 
philosophical interests were the works of 
Plato, continental phenomenologists, 
and Whitehead, the latter one of her 
teachers. Beyond philosophy, she read 
theology, literature, and history. But 
most of all, she talked about these things 
with an intensity which showed the kind 
of devotion she had, not just for the 
subjects as academic disciplines, but for 
what the subjects were about. 

Merle was a deeply religious person — 
a member of St. Bartholomew's Church 

and a worker at Emmaus House. How 
important it was to her most would not 
have known because she had such a 
sense of gravity about religion. It is next 
to impossible to speak for another in 
these matters; but at times the attempt is 
still necessary. Let us say then that her 
sense of gravity was based on the 
conviction that authenticity in religious 
belief most often must manifest itself 
obliquely; like a sacrament, it is the 
ordinary thing done in a certain way. 

She remarked to me once that, al- 
though the danger was not imminent, she 
would not like having a building or a 
room named after her. It was typical of 
what sometimes amounted almost to a 
dread of being praised or recognized. 
But at the time of her death so many 
have come together so spontaneously 
out of love and respect for this woman 
that we all recognize in one another the 
structure that Merle built with her life. 
And even she would let herself be proud 
of it.

The Department 

By Dr. Gunther Bicknese 


ROLE of German in American 
tion has undergone several notable 
es in the past 100 years. Until 
i War I, German was the leading 
n language at American univer- 

The reading of Goethe's Faust 
obligatory for most American 
ate students, an acquaintance with 
neteenth-century Novelle a matter 
irse. American students desiring to 

their education often spent a year 

at the universities of Heidelberg, 
igen, Gottingen, or Berlin. With the 

of World War I. however, the 
lum swung in the opposite direc- 
the study of German was largely 
itinued, and, although some of the 

were recovered in the late twen- 
ierman has remained in third place, 
ig far behind Spanish and French. 

War II had little effect on the 
of college German, and the strik- 
:surgence of German (and other 
rn foreign languages) following the 
ik shock of 1957 was only short- 
Basically, German, together with 
h and Spanish, is still engaged in an 
battle in an academic world that is 
ling increasingly career and busi- 

: nutshell survey of the past 100 
presented here is reflected and 
eled in the history of the Agnes 
Department of German. A few 
igo there appeared in the Alumnae 
terly a photograph of the Agnes 
German Club in the year 1902. This 
e of the "good old days" showed 
rofessor and the surprising number 
elve student club members. The 
ies and thirties, mostly under Pro- 
r Muriel Harn's devoted and capa- 
lairmanship. were years of modest 
ment, while the "golden sixties" 
ht new hope to American educa- 
n general and — especially because 
he economic boom in West 
any — to German in particular. 
Miss Harn's death Professor Erika 
r Shiver, formerly the chairman of 
German department at Mount 
3ke College, took the helm, and 
her experienced leadership the 
tment saw a period of remarkable 
h. Soon another full-time member 

Gunther Bickiusc. ihairman of the Department of German 

was added to the department, followed 
by an additional, part-time instructor. 

The decreasing overall enrollment at 
the College of the mid-seventies left its 
mark on the German department, hut 
fortunately not in the proportions one 
could and should have expected. Erika 
Meyer Shiver retired in 1973, but in the 
current academic year of 1978-79 the 
department still has two full-time profes- 
sors and one part-time instructor. Even 
today, enough Agnes Scott freshmen 
select German to meet their foreign 
language requirement to necessitate two 
beginners' sections, and we still have an 
average of two to three German majors 
per year. 

Mrs. Viola Westbrook, a native of 
Hamburg, with an M.A. in German from 
Emory University, teaches second year 
German and German phonetics on a 
part-time basis. Associate Professor In- 
grid Wieshofer Hogan (Ph.D., Universi- 
ty of Vienna, Austria) shares the respon- 
sibility for the other department offer- 
ings, above all, literature and culture 
courses, with Professor G'linther Bick- 
nese (Ph.D., University of Marburg, 

Germany), chairman of the department 
since 1969. We are pleased that all 
members of the German faculty are 
native speakers of German. 

The curriculum of the department has 
continually taken into account the fact 
that student interests have changed 
along with our ever-changing times, and 
that dedication to a liberal arts education 
does not mean restriction to the reading 
of great masterpieces by classical au- 
thors. While we still require our majors 
to take a course in Goethe's Faust as 
well as courses in the greatest authors of 
the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, 
such as Lessing, Schiller, and Kleist, we 
have added a number of courses dealing 
with the literature of our own age and a 
course called "German Life and 
Thought," which deals with many perti- 
nent aspects of the four German- 
speaking countries. To aid our students 
in understanding contemporary litera- 
ture, a study of the basics of German 
history, politics, economics, communi- 
cation, art, music, and theater is of great 

(continued on next page)

The Deporfment of German 


Another change since the late 1950s is 
a shift of emphasis in our language 
instruction. Speaking and understanding 
German have gained equality with read- 
ing and writing. The first-year textbook 
currently used by the department — 
originally published by Erika Meyer 
and completely revised in 1976 by 
Erika Meyer and Giinther Bicknese — 
emphasizes speaking and understanding 
no less that reading and writing. This 
approach is aided by the presence of a 
native German student on the Agnes 
Scott campus. During each of the past 
four years, we have had such a student 
from West Germany serving as a depart- 
ment assistant. Her responsibilities 
cover the activities of the German Club, 
the annual German play, the German 
lunch table, tutoring, and, most impor- 
tantly, supervision of the German cor- 
ridor in the dormitory, where students 
have an opportunity to practice German 
outside of the classroom in their every- 
day surroundings. 

This departmental update cannot be 
concluded without mentioning two very 
important assets that have helped the 
Department of German to retain its 
qualitative and quantitative strength dur- 
ing taxing years of constant struggle: the 
Goethe Institute of Atlanta and the 
Agnes Scott Summer Study Program in 

In 1977 a new branch of the German 
Cultural Center (Goethe Institute) was 
established in Atlanta. This opened up so 
many new doors to our department that 
it is impossible to list all the benefits we 
constantly derive from it. The Institute 
itself offers on location an excellent 

library, films, concerts, language 
classes, lectures; and it arranges for the 
schools in the metropolitan Atlanta area 
a wealth of exhibitions, speakers, and 
cultural events of all kinds, such as have 
never before been known in this part of 
the United States. 

The summer in Germany, a six-week 
intensive program of study in German 
language and literature, implemented by 
Professor Bicknese in 1971, had its 
fourth successful session in 1978. Begin- 
ning in 1980, the program will be offered 
regularly in alternate years. For six 
weeks Agnes Scott students and eligible 
students from other colleges travel to the 
picturesque medieval university town of 
Marburg and immerse themselves in the 
German culture. Living like German 

students, they enroll in special cci 
conducted by Mr. Bicknese and 
ified Marburg instructors and partic 
in numerous field trips and cul 
events. An optional post-program 
offers a two-week trip to Berlin, Pn 
Vienna, and Munich. Returning tc 
United States, students have learn( 
much German as during a full yea 
their home campus and have ex 
enced more of the German culture 
any book could ever attempt to t 
them. If it is true that the Go 
Institute is giving this department 
logistic support it so urgently n 
these days, then it must also be said 
the summer study.program in Marbi 
its single most important supplie 
blood and fresh air. ▲

One cannot think of Marie Huper Pepe 
without thinking of her enthusiasm, 
effervescence and enjoyment of life. Dr. 
Pepe is chairman of the art department at 
Agnes Scott College, a position she 
assumed after the retirement of Fer- 
dinand Warren 10 years ago. She came 
to Agnes Scott in 1951 as assistant 
professor of art. 

In addition to teaching art history and 
guiding Agnes Scott students during the 
academic year, she has also participated 
in the Scott program abroad during the 
summer months. On this program she 
has given instruction to students on art 
history in Germany, in Spain, and twice 
in Rome. Marie Pepe's recounting of the 
European summer programs makes them 
sound exciting, sometimes hilarious, and 
consumately educational. 

But Dr. Pepe's travels have not been 
confined to trips for the College. Over 
the last few years the Pepes (Marie and 
Charlie) have used available bits of 
Christmas and summer vacations to tour 
Guatemala to see the Mayan ruins; 
Canada, to attend the Shakespeare festi- 
val; Europe, including Denmark where 
Marie visited family; Peru, to see the 
ruins; Rio; and Russia. 

The Pepes continue to maintain their 
home on Lake Burton in North Georgia. 

And they have a new city home in Stone 
Mountain. The house has soaring ceil- 
ings and inviting wall space designed for 
Marie's collection of Ferdie Warrens, 
Lee Stevens, Ben Smiths, Jim McLeans, 
and, of course, Marie Hupers. 

One comes away from a visit with this 
warm, busy, loving person feeling im- 
measurably cheered. A 

Dr. Paul Garber Leads Trip to Bible Lands 

To Be in Jerusalem during Holy Week 
and Easter is an unmatched opportunity. 
Dr. and Mrs. Paul Garber are planning a 
trip to provide such an opportunity from 
March 23 through April 10. 1980. 

The Garbers have planned the 19-day 
itinerary carefully so that each day. tour 
members will see important places and 
will know the significance of that place. 
The whole journey runs from Dan to 
Beersheba and from the Arabian desert 
to the Mediterranean Sea. Though com- 
prehensive, the tour will include times 
for rest, wandering, and shopping. 

Highlights include: two days in 
Damascus which Abraham visited and 
where Paul the persecutor became St. 
Paul the missionary; two days in Jordan 
with Jerash. a Middle East Pompeii, and 
an all-day excursion to Petra, the "rose- 
red city half again as old as time;" four 
days in Galilee and northern Israel with 
visits to Capernaum, Nazareth, Megid- 
do, and Caesarea; five days in 

Jerusalem, enough time to feel at home 
in this unique city which has been called 
Everyman's spiritual birthplace; one in 
David's city — Bethlehem; one full day's 
excursion by air to Mt. Sinai with the 
Mountain of Moses and St. Catherine's 
monastery; in Judea and southern Israel, 
two days from Joppa to Jericho, remind- 
ing us of Simon the tanner, Samson, 
David and Goliath, the Philistines, the 
Qumran (Dead Sea Scrolls) community, 
Joshua, and John the Baptist. 

Pre-tour evenings at the College with 
illustrated lectures and tour-talk are 
being planned as well as a post-tour 
gathering. Dr. and Mrs. Garber are 
undertaking the tour of Bible lands in the 
spring as a service to alumnae, their 
families, and friends of the College. 
Details and price will be available later.

Dean of Students. Martha C. Kirkland 

Services administered by the Of 
of the Dean of Students include Fi 
cial Aid, Career Planning, and Hf 
Services. The office staff is also res 
sible for the housing of students, 
orientation of all new students, and 
counseling of students on non-acad«

staff provide these services to the Aj 
Scott student body. 

Martha C. Kirkland, Dean of 
dents, came to Agnes Scott in Septen 
1 974 — ' 'almost long enough ago not t 
new," she laughs. An Illinois native 
received her master's degree f 
George Washington University in 
ministration and supervision, she 
taught in the Montgomery Coi 
Schools in Rockvilie, Maryland, 
then served as chairman of the phys 
education department at Mount Ver 
College in Washington, D.C.. be 
becoming Dean of Students and 
Dean of Student Affairs there, 
simultaneously served as practicum 
visor for the graduate programs 
George Washington University am 
American University. She is Aj 
Scott's first married Dean of Studei 

Marty sees her job as dean hert 
"the best job in the world." Worl 
with young women who are concer 
with the direction their lives will ti 
who are still flexible enough to k 
from their mistakes, who are full of 
and are learning about themselves, 
most important component in mal 
her job fulfilling. 

Dean Kirkland views the unity wii 
the office itself as another import 
factor that makes her job reward 
Noting that each member of the vari 
office divisions is concerned with 
dent needs and problems, Marty po: 
to the individually oriented care 
interest taken with every student. 

She describes Agnes Scott student; 
of "high quality" and "responsi 
young women," stating that they 
here primarily for their academic f 
suits and to learn total growth, 
believes the students here are 
cream of the crop — academically 
personally." Dean Kirkland is in cl 
contact with the student body, meet 
once a week with the presidents of 
student body. Honor Court, and In 
dormitory Council. 

? Personal Approach 

e cornerstone of Agnes Scott life, 
onor system, is founded upon the 
ort. mature judgment, and personal 
rity of every student. Under the 
r system, regulations, both social 
academic, are based upon their

AssiST.^NT Dean of Students Mollie 
Merrick, a 1957 graduate of Agnes Scott, 
returned to the College in January 1959 
as an assistant to the Dean of Students. 
She received the M.A. degree in student 
personnel administration from Teachers 
College of Columbia University in 1965. 
Dean Merrick has several areas of 
student life for which she carries the 
primary responsibilities: housing, orien- 
tation of new students, and Sophomore 
Parents" Weekend. 

Dean Merrick assigns rooms and ar- 
ranges any room changes that occur 
during the year. By reading and studying 
the individual folders, she decides on the 
roommates of all new students. Another 
aspect of housing is working with the 

senior residents (housem.others) who are 
hired to live in the dormitories to counsel 
students and to deal with emergencies 
that might arise. To maintain unity 
among the dorms, the senior residents. 
Dean Kirkland, and Dean Merrick hold 
regular staff meetings to discuss campus 
events and to share counseling concerns. 
Each resident works at her dormitory's 
hostess desk, thereby affording one way 
of getting to know the students in that 
dorm better. 

Orientation for new students is an 
overall program to introduce students to 
every phase of life on and off campus 
and theoretically lasts the entire year. 
However, the official program ends with 
the Black Cat festivities in the fall. 

Mollie states that the students, 
through Orientation Council, coordinate 
orientation activities for the new stu- 
dents. The Council, consisting of eight 
students and Dean Merrick, involve the 
total campus in presenting as com- 
prehensive an introduction to Agnes 
Scott as possible. In addition to the 
Council, students from the sophomore. 

Barbara Smith, secretary: Marty Kirkland: Mollie Merrick '57. assistant dean 

junior, and senior classes are "Big 
Sisters" to incoming students, welcom- 
ing them to Agnes Scott and helping 
them throughout the year. 

One of the most rewarding programs 
of orientation is the introduction to the 
academic life of the campus. The 
academic chairman on Orientation 
Council is head of a student/faculty 
committee which plans for an intellectu- 
al component in the orientation process. 
This committee chooses a book to be 
read by all new students and then plans a 
time for small groups to discuss the book 
with a faculty member. The faculty 
members come from a cross section of 
departments and have had enthusiastic 
discussions among themselves in prepar- 
ing for the freshmen. The last two 
authors whose books were chosen, 
Reynolds Price and Eudora Welty, made 
fall visits to the campus to discuss and 
read their works. These have been 
exciting events for the entire communi- 
ty. The academic chairman also assists 
Dean Gue Hudson '68, class dean for 
freshmen and sophomores, in the more 
routine academic matters. Senior coun- 
selors work with groups of freshmen to 
help with getting courses selected and 
scheduled as well as with suggested 
study guidelines. 

A relatively new position within orien- 

tation is that of the return-to-college 
chairman on Orientation Council. She is 
in charge of a specialized orientation 
program for these students. Their "Big 
Sisters" are women who have been 
enrolled in the RTC program. Because 
these students come with special needs 
as well as unique contributions to make, 
their orientation is planned accordingly. 

Besides Dean Merrick's housing and 
orientation responsibilities, she is the 
faculty chairman of Sophomore Parents" 
Weekend, which was held this winter 
quarter for the 21st time. This was Miss 
Merrick's second year as chairman. The 
committee for this event is composed 
primarily of sophomores with a few 
faculty members who help plan and 
organize the weekend's events. A great 
success and a College tradition. Sopho- 
more Parents' Weekend introduces par- 
ents to all phases of campus life — 
academic, creative, recreational, and 

Dean Merrick, like the rest of the 
office, illustrates interest and involv- 
ment with the students. Her work with 
them from before the time they arrive at 
Agnes Scott in setting up rooms and 
roommates and then in their orientation 
once they arrive plays an important role 
in the Agnes Scott experience for each 


Director of Financial Aid, Boi 
Brown Johnson '70, sees the Ag 
Scott financial aid program as a vis 
and tangible commitment to the 
dents, a proof of the College's belie 
each student's ability. She points 
that, unlike many colleges, most of 
money used for financial aid comes fi 
Agnes Scott rather than the fed 
government. Over 70% of Agnes Si 
students receive financial assista 
from some source, and the amoun 
Agnes Scott financial aid expendec 
1977-78 exceeded $500,000. 

The main purpose of the Collej 
financial aid program is to give 
qualified students the opportunity 
attend, regardless of their families' 
nancial circumstances. Presently, 
College meets 100% of every stude 
demonstrated need. 

The amount of financial aid awards 
student represents the difference 
tween the cost of attending and 
family's ability to pay. The Financial 
Committee uses two forms, the Fan

;ge Testing Program and. more 
the Financial Aid Form of the 
:ge Scholarship Service, to deter- 
a student's need. Some of the 
rs considered in determining need 
de family income and assets, the 
;nt"s income, medical expenses, 
number of dependents, retirement 
i'ances, number of dependents in 
ge, and current living expenses. 
;cording to Bonnie, the financial aid 
age at Agnes Scott is a combination 
'pes of assistance put together for 
student and is dependent on a 
snt's class, residency, and her ac- 
bility to federal and state grants and 
de scholarships. The Agnes Scott 
on of the aid package typically 
des a grant, a loan, and campus 
oyment. Financial aid awards are 
for one year and are renewable on 
nee of continuing need, 
ants are the nonrepayable portion 
he financial aid package and are 
e possible by special gifts and the 
)wment income of the College. Last 
Agnes Scott spent $423,000 in 
ts and scholarships alone, not in- 
ing aid to return-to-college students. 
es Scott's low-interest loans, on the 
r hand, are usually repayable within 
years after the student leaves Agnes 
t, although payment may be defer- 
while the student attends a graduate 
rofessional school full-time. Interest 
ues on these loans only after the 
ent graduates or withdraws from 
es Scott. 

The employment portion of the aid 
package offers students on-campus work 
opportunities. Each student fills out 
preference and skill sheets and is then 
afforded the opportunity to work in 
administrative offices, language and sci- 
ence laboratories, the library, book 
store, post office, bank, or as assistants 
to faculty members. Freshmen and 
sophomores usually work five hours per 
week, while juniors and seniors may 
work up to eight hours a week. Students 
receive a bi-weekly payroll check. 

Currently, Agnes Scott's limited par- 
ticipation in federal aid programs con- 
sists of the Basic Educational Opportun- 
ity Grant and the Guaranteed Student 
Loan Programs, both of which are 
affected by President Carter's signing, 
on November I, of the Middle Income 
Assistance Act. 

Previously, the BEOG program was 
known as a program for lower-income 
and lower-middle-income families. Stu- 
dents whose family incomes exceeded 
$15,000 were usually not eligible for the 
Basic Grant. Under the new provisions, 
the program will be extended to cover 
some students with family incomes of 
$25,000. Mrs. Johnson indicates that 
probably twice as many students will be 
eligible for BEOG in 1979-80. This year 
about 70 students receive these federal 
grants which range to $1,600. For the 
academic year 1979-80, they will range to 

Under the provisions of the Guaran- 
teed Student Loan program, students 
and their families go to lenders in their 

own communities for funds to meet 
college expenses. The maximum loan for 
one year is $2,500 and for undergraduate 
study is $7,500. In the past, students 
whose adjusted family income was over 
$25,000 had interest charged on their 
loans while they were in school. The new 
regulations eliminate the income ceiling 
so that all students are eligible for 
federal interest benefits. 

At a time when a projected $12 billion 
will be spent in financial aid during 
1979-80 from all national sources for 
post-secondary education, Mrs. Johnson 
points out the non-financial benefits of 
the aid program. Working individually 
with students on budgets and applica- 
tions for scholarships from other 
sources, she emphasizes the need to 
impart financial responsibility and val- 
ues to students and the dual relationship 
between the College's commitment to its 
students, its stewardship of the mone- 
tary resources available for financial aid 
and the student's relationship to and 
responsibility in the partnership with the 
College in her financial aid. 


Kathleen K. Mooned, Agnes Scott's 
career planning director, believes that a 
student's major career-related decision 
has already been made when she decides 
to attend Agnes Scott and become part 
of its small, liberal arts, all-women 
environment. She herself is a graduate of 
Notre Dame College of St. John's 
University in New York and holds a 
master's from Syracuse University. Be- 
fore coming to Agnes Scott, Mrs. 
Mooney held the position of Assistant 
Director of Career Planning and Ad- 
ministrator of the Summer Institute for 
Women in Higher Education Adminis- 
tration at Bryn Mawr College. 

Mrs. Mooney notes that Agnes Scott 
graduates hold numerous types of jobs, 
have outstanding careers, and become 
community leaders despite the fact that 
Agnes Scott is not a vocational/technical 
school. Employers themselves have said 
and written that some of the job-related 
skills needed in most jobs are effective 
communications — the ability to write 
clearly and speak well, interpersonal 
skills, analytical ability, leadership, in- 
itiative, the ability to listen, the ability to 
work as part of a team, research skills, 
and organizational ability. For the most 
part, these are skills that are developed 

rather than learned from a textbook, 
developed through studies, extracurricu- 
lar activities, summer and part-time 
jobs. Agnes Scott's atmosphere "offers 
and fosters the efforts of each individual 
to participate in formal activities, to 
develop new activities, in which she can 
take a leadership role, organize a prog- 
ram, work with others on committees, 
hold elected offices, and give wide scope 
to her creative talents," says Mrs. 

When asked about the value of one 
major over another in terms of job 
qualifications, Kathy stresses the impor- 
tance of selecting a major that is of 
interest and provides enjoyment for the 
student. She believes the aforemen- 
tioned skills will be better developed in 
the study of a subject of interest rather 
than studying a subject for "practical" 

However. Mrs. Mooney emphasizes 
the importance of enhancing one's emp- 
loyability upon graduation. Describing 
the office's aids to help the student 
augment her employability, Kathy lists 
the following services of the career 
planning office; 

1) Individual counseling on career- 
related interests for students and 

2) Seminars and workshops: informa- 
tional types of programs, such as the 
three-part series on management in 
the corporate world held winter 

.^) Experimential programs: the Shadow 
Program, internships, cooperative 
education possibilities 

4) Self-assessment aids and vocational 

5) A Resource Room with information 
about traditional and non-traditional 
careers, lifestyles, the status of 
women in the work world, occupa- 
tional outlook and opportunities with 
specific employers, as well as 
graduate and professional school 

6) Access to role models: conference 
participants. Shadow Program spon- 
sors, and in the future, alumnae 
career advisers 

7) Job search and job-related skills: how 
to research a job. resume-writing, 
interviewing, assertiveness training 

8) Job referral and credentials services: 
a small, annual recruiting schedule, 
referral of specific notices to seniors 
and alumnae who list their names and 
interests with the office, maintaining 
and sending out upon request perma- 
nent reference folders the office 
maintains for seniors and alumnae 

She also mentions the College's Busi- 

Rosa Tinsley. secretary: lone Murphy, coordinator of alumnae services: Kathy Moone

ness Preparatory Program, which con- 
tains a selection of courses useful for 
many fields besides business. 1978-79 is 
the first time the program has been 
offered, and advance registration last 
spring indicated strong interest in the 
new program. 

Mrs. Mooney states that career plan- 
ning should be a four-year developmen- 
tal process, which emphasizes different 
aspects of the planning program for each 
student, from freshman through senior 
years. Kathy sees the program as a way 
to give a student a more evenly paced 
rate of accomplishment in achieving the 
four elements she views as necessary in 
a job search: know yourself, know the 
job market, bring them together, and get 
the job. The progressive steps are, 
during freshman year, group work to 
identify where the student stands, how 
well she knows herself, what she wants 
to do. and how well she knows the work 
world. In other words, freshman year 
would be the beginning self-assessment 
aspect of the program. Sophomore and 
junior years would be spent gathering 
information, and the last quarter of the 
junior year would see a re-assessment of 
self and decision of the first career 
direction the student wants to take. 
Senior year would then be focused on 
applying to graduate or professional 
schools and/or job hunting by learning 
the mechanics of "how to" in fall 
quarter and actually job hunting by 

winter quarter. 

Two major new developments will 
initiated during this spring quarte 
extern program and the alumnae ad- 
ory network. Mrs. Mooney hopes to 
the extern program over spring bri 
next year. A mailing to the grcE 
Atlanta area alumnae will ask if th 
their husbands, or their employers 
supervise a student for a week in or 
to give the student some experience i 
field in which she is interested. 

Kathy also plans to set up system 
cally an alumnae advisory network 
help students and alumnae on care 
related matters, perhaps even to 
point of helping them into the alumn 
own career field. She will begin with 
Atlanta area on this network progr 
but hopes to expand it to other lai 
metropolitan areas. 

Another implementation begun t 
year has been the Career Planni 
Office's weekly newsletter that is dist 
buted campus-wide. The double-sid 
legal sheet contains information abc 
programs, jobs, graudate school new 
statistics, and other information 
ceived about women and work. 

The Career Planning Office is th 
expanding and broadening its services 
students and alumnae by encouragi 
them towards activities and informati 
that will complement their acaden 
learning and enable them to make 
informed life/work decision.

were determined last year after 
w of statistics indicated that the 
ous 24-hour-a-day. seven-day-a-

sparsity of use during nights and 

General medical, psychological, and 
gynecological services are offered 
through the Health Center. The latter 
two services are provided by consul- 
tants. The general medical services 
include the care of minor health prob- 
lems and the referral of those problems 
that require the care of a specialist, such 
as dental, dermatologic, ophthalmologic. 

Other important aspects of general 
services are health education and screen- 
ing. The professional staff participate in 
the orientation process of new students 
and conduct fireside chats during fall 
quarter to discuss adjustments to college 
life that can influence health. Other 
special health programs are offered 
throughout the school year such as 
breast self examination, blood pressure 
screening, gynecologic seminar, and, for 
the first time this year. Red Cross First

In response to students" requests this 
year and in keeping with the current 
concept of health care, the professionals 
of the Health Center developed a Hand- 
book of Health Information for Students 
that was distributed dormitory-wide. 
The Handbook contains a list of minor 
ailments with do's and don't's listed for 
each problem. Evaluation of the Hand- 
book by students and the nurses indi- 
cates a need for expansion of the 
Handbookto include listings of addition-

plans to develop an expanded version 
this summer. 

In academic year 1977-78 there were 
1 ,800 student visits to the Health Center. 
This number included return visits,

With the Clubs 

(Metropolitan Atlanta) 

More than 65 alumnae and friends 
gathered around a big fire in Winship 
dormitory January 13 and enjoyed a 
discussion of Nancy Friday's book. My 
Mother, My Self, led by Dr. Connie A. 
Jones, assistant professor of sociology. 
Hot coffee and doughnuts welcomed 
participants as they arrived, and many of 
the group stayed on the campus after- 
wards for lunch together in the dining 
hall. Dr. Jones shared her own reactions 
to the book and moderated the group 
discussion, an exchange of ideas not 
only on the book but also on the role of 
women in society today and the many 
pressures experienced. In February the 
club had an interesting update on the 
admissions program at the College by 
Libby Dowd Wood, groups coordinator. 
Mary K. Owen Jarboe '68 and Anita 
Moses Shippen '60, assistants to the 
Director of Admissions. 


President susan king iohnson '67 
included in a newsy letter a gift check 
from the Shreveport Club to the College. 
This group is particularly interested in 
promoting Agnes Scott to qualified 

young women in the area. "Our club is 
small," she wrote. "The ages are varied, 
and so are our interests, but the day we 
meet for lunch is lively and stimulating. 
It is no less than one would expect from 
individuals educated in an academic 
tradition who have continued to grow." 
This year's Founder's Day luncheon was 
at Susan's home on February 20. It was 
"primarily social, with a fleeting busi- 
ness meeting, and very successful!" 
Their future plans look toward a coke 
party for high school students interested 
in hearing about Agnes Scott. Serving 
with Susan as incoming officers are Sara 
Margaret Heard White '58, vice presi- 
dent; Stewart Lee Nelson Mead '71, 
secretary; and Helen Heard Lowrey '67, 


"The presence of Dr. Edward McNair 
made our Founder's Day meeting espe- 
cially enjoyable and memorable for all of 
us," wrote President Chee Kludt Rick- 
etts '68 after the Tidewater group's 
luncheon February 24 at Cedar Point 
Club in Crittenden, Va. "We listened 
with tremendous delight to his humorous 
and informative talk, and he graciously

favorite professors and College per- 
sonalities as well as changes taking place

Alumnae Tour Historic Southern Houses 

The Agnes Scott Alumnae Associa- 
tion, together with the Georgia Trust 
for Historic Preservation, organized a 
one-day study trip to Macon from 
Decatur on April 5. The trip included a 
visit to Betty Talmadge's home in 
Lovejoy, a tour of the Hay House, and a 
visit to the Jarrell Plantation, near 
Forsyth. Mrs. Talmadge. who is secre- 
tary of the Georgia Trust, guided the 
group through her home, where exam- 
ples of her prize-winning needlework are 
displayed. The Hay House, a national 
historic landmark built between 1855 and 
1860. represents the Italian Renaissance 
style of architecture. There the group of 
thirty-nine alumnae and friends plus a 
group of Macon alumnae had lunch on 
the grounds. The tour's conclusion, the 
Jarrell Plantation, contrasted in its sim- 
plicity of architecture and setting to the 
two earlier sites and rounded out the 
group's study tour. 

The Hay House mansion provides architec- 
tural contrast. 


Solly Veole Daniel '52: Mother, Model, Minister 

By Joann Hathiuvax Mcrriman '58 

Reprinted with the author's per- 
mission from the New Haven 
Register, January 9. 1979. 

The fine blue eyes, dramatized 
with nearly-theatrical makeup, 
steadily regard the century-old 
Bible that belonged to a Method- 
ist-minister great-grandfather. 
"Here's Jesus' mission and my 
hope, in Luke four." says The 
Rev. Sally V. Daniel, newly or- 
dained in the family faith and, at 
47. after 15 years as a profession- 
al model and fashion coordinator, 
starting a second career in the 

She searches out verse 18: 
"God has sent me to . . . proclaim 
release to the captives, and recov- 
ering of sight to the blind, to set at 
liberty them that are bruised." 
Calling herself a "liberation 
theologian," Ms. Daniel explains 
that she always refers to God in 
non-sexist terms, not limiting the 
concept to maleness by calling 
God "Him." "God is both male 
and female. Mother and Father. A 
woman in the pulpit makes a 
profound statement about the na- 
ture of God." 

A 1952 honors graduate of 
Agnes Scott College. Decatur. 
Ga. (where she was elected to Phi 
Beta Kappa). Ms. Daniel lives in 
Atlanta with her husband of 26 
years, attorney T. Emory Daniel, 
Jr. They recently visited her par- 
ents, Mr. and Mrs. William H. 
Veale of 295 West Rock Ave., to 
celebrate both Christmas and the 
Veales' 50th wedding anniver- 
sary. The couple's four married 
children and families came home 
from two continents. Their roots 
here go deep. Mrs. Veale's 
forebears, the Beaches, settled in 
New Haven in 1638. 

Ms. Daniel was once a fulltime 
wife and mother of three, active 
in the church and in such large- 
scale community endeavor as 
heading up the DeKalb County 
United Way Appeal. "Fifteen 
years ago," she recalls, "I was 
fulfilling all that was expected of 
me and my contemporaries. I 
worked hard, both inside and 
outside the home, but I wasn't 
getting paid. 

This gradually changed, start- 
ing one evening when her hus- 
band returned from a political 
rally which, as vice-president 
(later president) for the nonparti- 
san League of Women Voters, 
she didn't attend. He had won a 
door prize, a modeling course. 
"He thought I'd enjoy it," 

smiles Ms. Daniel, who stands six 
feet tall in heels. "I surely did. It 
led to a position as model at a 
large Atlanta department store." 
Freelance fashion modeling fol- 
lowed. Soon Ms. Daniel was busy 
showing new styles during lunch- 
times at hotels in the city, as an 
independent show manager. Later 
she taught at the Atlanta branch 
of a national modeling school. 

In 1971 she became fashion 
coordinator for Sears in down- 
town Atlanta. She was responsi- 
ble for fashion shows held in the 
store and at outside locations, and 
also traveled in the metropolitan 
area to update audiences with 
style shows and slide-illustrated 
lectures. In addition, Ms. Daniel 
instructed "Discovery" classes, a 
ten-week course for young people 
ages 9-17 on health, fashion, 
makeup, modeling, and exercise. 
As part of the physical education 
curriculum at area schools, she 
spoke to children on good groom- 
ing. Last summer she resigned 
after her ordination, having talked 
to an estimated 50,000 children 
and taught over 3.500 students. 

"Serving in this way was very 
important to me," Ms. Daniel 
observes. "Many students had 
low self-images when they en- 
rolled in the Discovery course. 
Some were actually about to drop 
out of high school. The instruc- 
tion improved their self- 
confidence to the point where 
several decided not only to finish 
secondary studies but also to 
work their way through college. 

In the midst of working this 
long-range magic on Southern 
youth, Ms. Daniel had a second 
turning point. She attended a 1975 
summer program. "The New 
Role of Women in the Church." 
offered by Candler Theological 
Seminary at nearby Emory Uni- 
versity. "It changed my outlook 
completely." the former New 
Havener remembers. "When it 
concluded, I knew I wanted to be 
part of the church in a radically 
new way. I struggled with myself; 
1 knew going to seminary plus my 
job would be very difficult, but I 
also knew the ministry was where 
I belonged. Fortunately my hus- 
band has been totally sup- 

There were problems. "I had 
had paid help two and a half days 
a week for some years, but the 
maid had to leave us. I felt it was 
my duty to do the whole thing 
myself — clean house, hot meals, 
fresh laundry, family needs 

tended to — besides bringing home 
a paycheck. Finally it got to be 
too much. I was getting worn to a 

"One day I just told the family 
that I'd taken care of the house 
for 20 years, and now it was my 
turn to 'do my thing.' Everybody 
would have to pitch in. I felt very 
revolutionary at that time 
speaking out as I did, but I'd been 
growing and changing too. The 
growth was very painful for us 
both. Things were difficult for 
about four years." 

"Gradually Emory has become 
a real feminist: an ardent support- 
er of women's economic, social, 
and political equality. He's a far 
better cook than I am — and he 
shops for groceries, too. Every- 
body does a share. We call it an 
equal employment opportunity 
household,' though that's not an 
original phrase. One result is that 
we all have new feelings of 
accomplishment and a new unity 
we never expected." 

Ms. Daniel notes happily. 
"We're both sure of ourselves 
now. and I'm glad we've both 
become liberated, in a sense, 
within our marriage. I never had 
to make the choice some women 
are faced with when their hus- 
bands can't adapt or grow: either 
stifle your career needs or get out 
there and hack it on your own." 

She and her husband, she adds 
"are working on our 'third mar- 
riage.' Some couples do this se- 
quentially, with different people. 
We're doing it with each other, 
and we're together because we 
choose to be. I can't imagine life 
without him." 

Ms. Daniel feels that all her 
past volunteer work, all her teach- 
ing and encouragement of young 
people, had prepared her for 
service in the church. 

"I'm mellowing," she com- 
ments, pointing up the growth and 
inner struggle that still periodical- 
ly overtake her. Despite her ele- 
gant exterior, she is closely in 
touch with her own humanity. 
Often she is in physical pain from 
old injuries to back and knee, and 
must swim for exercise rather 
than jog or play tennis. 

She acknowledges the jagged 
upward spiral of a faith often 
tested. "Periods of anguish about 
faith and life are standard and 
suitable," Ms. Daniel says. "An 
advantage to starting seminary as 
an older person is that I've al- 
ready worked through the hor- 
rendous self-doubt, the "why am I 

here?' questioning that someti 
causes seminarians to drop 
for a year to resolve. I won't 
any time." 

On the other hand, she ha 
time to make mistakes, no 
years after graduation for " 
soning' as a pastor. I'll hav 
jump in, risk, and pray 
grace." Ms. Daniel expect" 
complete Master of Divinity 
gree requirements at Can 
Theological Seminary. En 
University, in March, and 
graduate in June. (One of 
lecturers in that significant, in 
1975 summer program was L 
Russell, Associate Professoi 
Theology at Yale Divi 

Ms. Daniel would like to 
come minister of "a small ui 
church in a changing neigh 
hood — that is, one where m 
church members no longer 
nearby, maybe one with 
homes that young couples 
buying and renovating. I'd s 
off by ringing doorbells!" 

Ms. Daniel also sees a nee 
rural areas. "There's not all 
much difference between city 
country people. All people 1 
similar kinds of problems, 7 
all hurt and bleed. I do v 
'cut my teeth" in parish mmis 
I'll go where I'm sent." 

""When I do become a paste 
Ms. Daniel laughs. "I'll h 
with me the best church woi 
anywhere." She means husb

elected chairperson of the 
ministrative Board of Allan 
1 ,900-member Glenn Memc

She stresses, "I want especi 
to preach. A good 20-mii 
sermon requires 20 hours of st 
and work, and I'm willing to 
in that kind of time. Why 
believe the laity are hungry

New Playwright Mokes Mark 

Marsha Williams Norman 
Byck '69 was an unknown playw- 
right one and a half years ago. 
Today, she has a track record. 
Broadway producers know her 
name. So do a lot of Hollywood 
movie and television producers. 

The reason for the fame and 
publicity is Miss Norman's first 
play. Getting Out. Getting Out 
was produced at Actors Theatre 
of Louisville in November 1977 
during ATL's first Festival of 
New American Plays where it 
won ATL's 1977 Great American 
Play Contest. Miss Norman's 
story about a woman felon's first 
day of parole freedom was recent- 
ly picked by the American Thea- 
ter Critics Association as the 
"Best New Play in a Regional 
Theatre for 1977/78." It is to be 
included in The Best Plays of 
1977-78, the next edition of the 
craft's annual reference manual. 
The play has also been named 
runner-up for the first Susan 
Smith Blackburn Prize, a literary 
prize that goes to an outstanding 
English-language play written by 
a woman. 

Miss Norman's play-writing tal- 
ents were encouraged by ATL's 
director/producer Jon Jory. Jory 
had been intrigued by her work in 
the Jefferson County school's 
special arts project and the week- 
ly "Jelly Bean Journal" she wrote 
for the Louisville Times. He urged 

her to write something for ATL's 
first playwright's contest. Jory 
encouraged her to search back in 
her experience to some painful 
period and to write a play about 
that time. She focused on her first 
post-school assignment, a two- 
year stint at the Kentucky Central 
State Hospital with emotionally 
disturbed children. Instead of 
doing a play just about that 
situation. Miss Norman decided 
to explore what happend to such 
adolescents later on and concen- 
trated on a person's release from 
an institution, in her play's case, a 
prison. She notes that getting out 
and being out are as big a dilemma 
as the imprisonment was, and she 
sees Getting Out as the represen- 
tation of release from prisons of 
all kinds. 

Thus resulted Miss Norman's 
drama about Arlene, a convicted 
murderer who has just been re- 
leased after several years in pris- 
on. There are two Arlenes in the 
play, and both are frequently on 
stage together. One is the current 
Arlene who faces both the shock 
and fears of her new freedom and 
the memory of the events that 
turned her into a terribly dis- 
turbed problem child with an 
early criminal record. The other 
Arlene is Arlie as a child and 
teenager suffering from parental 
neglect, various forms of deli- 
quency, and the inefficiency of

Alaska Lures Alumna 

By Judy Hamilton Grubbs '73 

"Greetings From Nome!" 
writes Mary Paige Lucas "73. Last 
fall Mary Paige accepted a posi- 
tion teaching children with learn- 
ing disabilities at Nome (Alaska) 
Elementary School. The move 
has brought both professional and 
personal adventures. 

A city of 2.500 on the Bering 
Sea, Nome still has the appear- 
ance and open atmosphere of the 
old west gold rush town it once 
was — "the only place in the world 
where you can walk down the 
street and breathe gold dust." 
Walking is, in fact, Mary Paige's 
primary means of transportation, 
to which she credits great im- 
provement in her figure. Her 
Alaskan diet may also have 
helped. She describes eating 
blueberries and cranberries pick- 
ed while camping on the perma- 
frost, locally caught crab and 
salmon, and reindeer meat. She 
plucks, cleans, and cooks ptar- 
migan, a quail-like bird hunted in 
the area, and has even shot and 
skinned a red fox. Hunting, she 
explains, is necessary for Alas- 
kans and is not considered sport. 

Her most exotic culinary effort so 
far is "the creme de la creme of 
moose"" — moose heart — 
delicious, she says, with wild rice 
stuffing. The high cost and poor 
selection of groceries in Nome 
has also prompted Mary Paige to 
bake her own bread and order a 
year"s supply of non-perishables 
from Seattle. 

Teaching in Alaska also pro- 
vides new and exciting experi- 
ences. Three-quarters of the 380 
students of Nome Elementary 
School are Eskimo, and Mary 
Paige says the cultural differences 
are amazing. "Eskimo people are 
not aggressive or competitive — 
they are mellow and loving. We 
have almost no behavior prob- 
lems, so teaching is very pleasant 
in that way. . . . And they're 
above grade level, for the most 
part."" The creative and energetic 
faculty participates in many team- 
teaching activities in the open 
space school, which is '"equipped 
with everything known to man to 
teach with, including a big gym, 
home ec. department, bilingual- 
bicultural department, and color 

videotaping studio." 

In her time away from school, 
Mary Paige is compiling quite a 
list of Alaskan activities — dogsled 
and snowmobile riding, ice fishing 
for crab, cross-country skiing and 
backpacking, and even gold pan- 
ning. She finds the native culture 
fascinating, with skin sewing, 
whaling, hunting, and ivory carv- 
ing still a way of life for the 
Eskimo people, and she is learn- 
ing the Eskimo language, Inupiaq, 
which has three dialects. The 
energy and openness of the peo- 
ple are also factors in her growing 
love of Alaska. 

In December Mary Paige re- 
ported that Nome was down to 
four hours of daylight and temp- 
eratures of 13 degrees below zero, 
with 30 below chill factor. There- 
fore even the hardiest of adven- 
turers, as Mary Paige is surely 
proving to be, may be forgiven a 
respite: after three days at 
Alyeska ski resort at Christmas, 
her holidays were completed with 
eight days in the warmth and 
sunshine of Hawaii. ▲

Florence E. Smith 


By Philip Davidson 
Professor of History, 1928-1942 

The news of Florence Smith's death 
and of her generous bequest to the 
College brought back to me, after my 
immediate sadness at the loss of an old 
friend and colleague, a flood of happy 
memories of her and of the Agnes Scott 
of the 1930s. 

In spite of the Depression and the 
boiling up of events which led to World 
War II, those were lovely years. The 
ideals of the College were simple and 
clear — devotion to liberal learning, deep 
religious conviction in the leadership of 
the institution, and dedication to an 
educated womanhood. 

It was a time of some of the most 
vigorous and capable teaching I have 
ever known on a college campus. There 
was an intellectual verve in the faculty 
and student body and a sense of high 
moral purpose that is very rare and very 

Florence Smith had a vital part in 
achieving that quality of life on the 
campus, for she embodied in her own 
life and teaching the ideals of the 

A graduate of Westhampton College, 
the woman's college of the University of 

Richmond, Florence received the M.A. 
and Ph.D. degrees from the University 
of Chicago. She joined the Agnes Scott 
faculty in 1927 and retired in 1965 as 
associate professor of history, emerita. 
While at Agnes Scott she was active in 
the Phi Beta Kappa chapter and in 
faculty committee work. 

Florence was one of the neatest and 
most organized persons I have ever 
known. Her hair never fell down, her 
shirt waist never pulled loose from her 
skirt, never a pin was out of place. Her 
teaching was the same way, perfectly 
organized, systematic, and she and 
every student in the class knew exactly 
what they were doing and where they 
were going. Occasionally she would 
have to miss a class, but she never liked 
me to take it, because she said I 
disorganized the students. 

Florence was a beautiful musician and 
loved to chaperone students to concerts 
in Atlanta, riding the Decatur street car 
all the way to town for a nickel. During 
the early years of the Atlanta Sym- 
phony, Florence was one of its violin- 
ists. She was also a pianist and an 

She was a very private person and 
kept her personal life separate from the 
College, but her influence as a teacher 
and counselor was very strong, and 
students flocked to "Miss History 
Smith's" classes and office. Her life- 
long scholarliness and kindness con- 
tributed much to the life of Agnes Scott. 

Those of us who knew the earlier 
years of the College have followed it 
with affection and pride. In spite of the 
enormous changes in society and the 
great financial pressures that make every 
college president's life a burden, the 
College has been true to its ideals. 
Whenever Mrs. Davidson and I attend 
an alumnae gathering here in Nashville, 
we come away with a glow of apprecia- 
tion for the continued strength and 
influence of Agnes Scott College. Flor- 
ence Smith's contribution to that influ- 
ence will long be remembered with 
gratitude. A

The Department of Histc 


In 1584 Queen Elizabeth I calls Parlia- 
ment to session. 

The decade of the seventies has been a 
time of growth and change for the 
Department of History and Political 
Science. There have been personnel and 
curriculum changes of course, but in 
addition, new programs have been de- 
vised and entirely new kinds of experi- 
ences have been made available to our 

The Department of History and Polit- 
ical Science is one of only three surviv- 
ing "double departments" at Agnes 
Scott. The marriage of the two disci- 
plines is rather an eccentric inheritance 
from the past, but we manage to survive 
in amicable, if unnatural, harmony. A 
notable development of recent years, at 
Agnes Scott and elsewhere, has been the 
rapid increase of student interest in the 
social sciences. Psychology, sociology, 
and economics have grown by leaps and 
bounds. Political science has partici- 
pated fully in this development and now 
at the beginning of the eighties, appears 
to be ready to declare its independence 
and seek the status of a department in its 
own right. But for the time being we are 
joined as one, and this report will 
attempt to summarize developments in 
both areas, looking first at history. 

Ten years ago, as the seventies began, 
the department had undergone a pretty 
thorough "changing of the guard." Miss 
Florence Smith had retired; Koenraad 
Swart had left to assume the chair of 
Dutch history at University College, 
London; William Cornelius had moved 
west to take up his new duties as 
chairman of the Department of Political 
Science at Southern Oregon University 
in Ashland. And then, in 1970, Walter 
Posey retired after a long and distin- 
guished tenure as chairman of the 

But amid all these resignations and 
retirements there were comings as well 
as goings. In 1965, Penelope Campbell 
(Ph.D. Ohio State University) joined the 
faculty. Her appointment was made 
possible by an exciting grant to the 
department by the Campbell Foundation 
(no relation!) who were keen to help us 
expand our curriculum beyond the tradi- 
tional fields of American and European 
history. Miss Campbell has added a new 

dimension to our offerings with 
courses in the history of Africa 
Southeast Asia. Also in 1965 c;

He is a Danforth Fellow and in 1972 1 
elected a Fellow of the Royal Histor 
Society. Mr. Brown assumed the ch 
manship of the department upon 
Posey's retirement. Geraldine Mere 
(Ph.D. University of Oregon) joined 
faculty in 1966. Her doctoral studies 
been concentrated on early medi( 
history, but she had more recei 
developed strong teaching and resea 
interests in colonial America and mod 
Europe. At Agnes Scott her teachin

John Gignilliat (Ph.D. University 
Wisconsin) came in 1969 prepared

history courses that Dr. Posey wo

scholarly interest is in American intel 
tual history. He will soon complet

him for a number of years, an intellet 
al biography of Douglas Sout 
Freeman. These are the full-time m( 
bers of the history faculty but a valu;

An especially exciting curriculum in- 
novation was the inauguration in 1970 of 
our course of summer study abroad. 
Called "Social History of Tudor and 
Stuart England." it has been offered 
three times and will be given again next 
summer. The program is led by Mr. 
Brown and entails six weeks of travel 
and study in England and Scotland. 
Approximately two weeks are spent in 
London, then a week each in Exeter, 
Oxford, York, and Edinburgh. Accom- 
modations are in a hotel in London and 
at the university in each of the other 
cities. Typically, there is a lecture in the 
morning followed by a visit to some 
historical site that is associated with the 
subject of the lecture in the afternoon. A 
lecture on the Elizabethan court system 
was given in the Great Hall at Lincoln's 
Inn: "Education in Shakespeare's Eng- 
land" was discussed among the medieval 
splendors of All Souls College, Oxford; 
the seventeenth century parliament was 
the subject of a lecture delivered in a 
committee room in the Palace of West- 
minster. Each year, some of the lectures 
are given by distinguished British his- 

Another notable development has 
been the increase in the number of 
students who choose to take their junior 
year abroad. This option has been 
available to Agnes Scott students for 
some time, but in the seventies the 
number of history majors electing this 
option has grown very substantially. St. 
Andrews University, the University of 
Exeter, and the University of East 
Anglia have been the most popular 
destinations for our junior year abroad 
students who seem never to fail to 
benefit from the experience of living and 
learning in another land. A direct benefit 
to the College derives from the new 
perspectives they develop and, upon 
their return, bring into their classes at 
Agnes Scott. 

Anyone who watches trends in Ameri- 
can higher education will know that a 
key word in the seventies has been 
' "internships"— educational experiences 
beyond the classroom. The utilization of 
internships has been very pronounced in 
political science, but they are beginning

to register a modest impact upon history, 
too. During the last year or two, we have 
been pleased to observe an increasing 
interest among some of our students in 
historic preservation. Working through 
the Governor's Intern Program, we have 
been able to place two students in 
positions where they have had an oppor- 
tunity to test and develop their interest in 
this activity. Last year a junior history 
major, working under the supervision of 
an architectural historian, prepared 
nominations for the National Register of 
Historic Buildings. Her work was car- 
ried on in the Historic Preservation 
section of the Department of Natural 
Resources. This summer, another his- 
tory major will be working with the 
Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation, 
developing an annotated bibliography of 
resource materials in the field. Much of 
her time will be spent working in the 
state archives. 

History lies very close to the heart of 
the liberal arts curriculum. In addition to 
providing an intellectual e.xperience that 
is significant in itself, the study of 
history requires careful and critical 
reading, the collection, arrangement, 
and presentation of factual information 
and documented opinion. It provides a 
framework that gives coherence to other 
studies. It suggests the setting in which 
men and events encountered in other 
disciplines can be considered. Less 
tangibly, history helps widen mental 
horizons by attacking the "chronological 
provincialism" that seems particularly to 
afflict the young. Rightly considered, it 
is the record of all human activity, not 
just political ("battles and wars") but 
religious, philosophical, social, artistic, 
and economic as well. No discipline has 
broader concerns. It is our task, and our 
privilege, to help our students know and 
appreciate their own heritage and the 
heritage of at least some of the other 
peoples with whom they share this 
shrinking globe. 

The values that underlie the study of 
history are enduring. Interpretation, em- 
phasis, and insight change, but the stuff 
of history is set in the immutable past. 
Political science is oriented more to- 
wards the present. The language of 
politics is ever-changing. Recently it has 
expanded to include such terms as 
"ecology," "ERA," "Sunbelt and 
Snowbelt," "SALT," and "reverse dis- 
crimination." All these terms represent 
new public issues that involve the 

selection of alternative values, goals, 
and means. None of us can escape the 
implications of political decisions. But 
while the form of issues and the methods 
of study may change, the substance of 
politics has had remarkable continuity. 

The political science program has 
three fundamental objectives: first, to 
provide students with solid grounding in 
the enduring questions of politics such as 
those relating to the distribution of 
power in society; second, to equip 
students with the tools and methods of 
systematic political analysis; and third, 
to provide an awareness of the value 
basis of political choices. 

Two full-time faculty members offer 
courses in a variety of sub-fields of 
political science. Gus B. Cochran earned 
his B.A. degree at Davidson College 
where he was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow 
and was elected to membership in Phi 
Beta Kappa. He earned his M.A. at the 
University of Indiana and his Ph.D. at 
the University of North Carolina. Mr. 
Cochran teaches American politics and 
political theory. His research interests 
(which will be pursued in a sabbatical 
leave in 1979-80) center upon democratic 
theory and decentralization. He has 
published articles in Phylon and South 
Atlantic Urban Studies and contributed 
an article to a collection called Politics 
and Policy in North Carolina. Steven A. 
Haworth earned his B.A. degree at Yale 
and his M.A. at the School of Public and 
International Affairs at George Washing- 
Ion LIniversity. He did special work at 
the Inter-University Consortium for 
Political Research at the University of 
Michigan and earned his Ph.D. at the 
University of Virginia. Mr. Haworth 
teaches international relations and com- 
parative politics. His chief research 
interests are concerned with develop- 
ment, growth, and environmental re- 

In addition to the work offered in the 
traditional fields of political science, 
new courses have been added in recent 
years. "Environment and Politics" ex- 
amines major environmental issues such 
as the management of air and water 
resources, land use planning, and pat- 
terns of energy consumption. Students 
in this course go on field trips and attend 
lectures given by visiting experts. A 
seminar on "Marx and the Varieties of 
Socialism" is taught jointly by Mr. 
Cochran and Mr. Richard Parry of the 
philosophy department. A new senior 

Geraldine Meronev 

seminar, led by Mr. Cochran and 
Haworth, will examine each year a 
chosen in consultation with rising s 
majors. The close relationship bet 
political and economic issues has 
recognized by the inclusion in 
political science curriculum of couri 
international economics and publ 
nance which are offered by the De 
ment of Economics.

mic metropolitan area with steadily

irrently with the session of the

: Washington Semester program of 
ican University which permits stu- 

to live in Washington for about 
months and to study and observe 

the federal government in action. Here, 
too, students are involved in actual work 
experience; they also attend seminars, 
hear lectures by prominent federal offi- 
cials, and carry on a major research 
project. The Washington Semester of- 
fers programs in American government,

became associated with the Governor's 
Intern Program which places students in 
the executive branch of state govern- 
ment, state and local agencies, the 
legislature, or public and private non- 
profit organizations. All participants re- 
ceive academic credit for their work, but 
the amount of credit, and all matters 
pertaining to it, is left to the discretion of 
each student's home college or univer- 

In addition to these established pro- 
grams, a student may design her own 
internship in consultation with a faculty 
advisor. In the past, programs of this 
type have included working in a congres- 
sional office, with legal services, and 
with the DeKalb County Commission. 

Internships have added great diversity 
to our curriculum. But we realize that we 
must be selective in their use and that 
they must be kept in appropriate rela- 
tionship to the purely academic aspects 
of a student's program. All internships 
have to receive the approval of the 
department and of the College's cur- 

riculum committee before any academic 
credit can be awarded. In addition to the 
demands of her work experience, an 
Agnes Scott student will frequently be 
required to do related academic work — 
readings from a specially prepared bib- 
liography, writing a paper, keeping a 
daily journal of her activities, writing a 
retrospective evaluation of her experi- 
ence and relating it to political theories 
learned in the classroom. The purpose of 
the internship is to provide an integration 
of theory and practice, to build a bridge 
between the classroom and the world of 
political and governmental activity. 
Properly managed, each can enrich the 
other. With the careful, personal super- 
vision which Agnes Scott's small size 
makes possible, and the wealth of 
internship opportunities the area af- 
fords, we are in a uniquely favorable 
position to take advantage of this valu- 
able learning experience. 

The ultimate satisfaction for those of 
us who teach derives from seeing our 
students as they move away from college 
and establish themselves in their own 
activities and careers. History and politi- 
cal science graduates pursue a wide 
range of goals. Many of them continue 
their education in graduate and profes- 
sional schools all over the country. 
Others have entered careers in law, 
journalism, education, business, govern- 
ment, and volunteer services. A

Her kind of commitment seems to be 
becoming rarer and rarer — a total 
commitment to her profession and to her

life at Agnes Scott. 

Her devotion defies the clock. She 
gives us a sense of continuity, of being 
part of an ongoing human effort in 
learning and living. As a result, her 
indelible gift is a sense of ourselves. She 
gives us a sense of standards, of doing

Alumnae Assist in Admissions 

Bv Lihhy Dowel Wood 

MNAE are playing a greater part in 
ssions each year. Currently we have 
Alumnae Admissions Representa- 
(AARs) from twenty-seven states. 
nteen are new this year. 
le AAR Program was begun in the 

■70s by Carey Bowen Craig "62. 
the associate director of alumnae 
rs. The objectives of the program 
remained the same — to increase the 
ility of Agnes Scott College in local 
Tiunities. to increase the enrollment 
lualified students, and to renew 
est among alumnae in the quality of 
ation offered at the College, 
le basic responsibility of each AAR 
act as the official liaison between 
Admissions Office and such in- 
ted people as prospective students, 
icants. parents, counselors, and 
s in the community. The primary 
irement for an AAR is to stay 
med about the College as it exists 
The Admissions Office sends 
:s all recruiting brochures as well as 
>dic "updates." When traveling, 
members attempt to phone or visit 
:s and once a year the Admissions 
;e flies AARs back to campus for an 
sive two-day workshop. This year 
ty-one AARs from twelve states 
nineteen cities returned to attend 
es. to meet with student leaders, 
dent Perry, and other administra- 
heads, and to participate in a 
;shop session. Thus, through publi- 
ns, personal contact, and the AAR 
erence, the Admissions Office at- 
ts to keep AARs abreast of cur- 
m changes, new academic pro- 
i. social policy, and admissions 
edures. policies, and methods. 
r activities include identifying pros- 
ve students, visiting local secon- 

schools. following up on good 
sects and applicants, hosting infor- 
atherings, representing Agnes Scott 
'ge at college programs, and keeping 
dmissions staff up to date on local 

jmnae are effective representatives 
I vital part of the overall admissions 
am. This year AARs and other 
nae represented Agnes Scott at 
three college programs in thirteen 
s, seeing over 265 new students. 
s and other alumnae provided 336 
1 contacts with prospective students 
year. Six AARs and two other 
nae held six informal gatherings 
ded by a total of ninety students. 
Its. counselors, and alumnae. .\s of 
twenty-four AARs contacted 

fifty-one applicants, twenty-three of 
whom enrolled. 

Visiting local high schools is a difficult 
AAR duty. Mary Barnett Tennaro "67 of 
Upper Montclair. New Jersey, visited 
twenty-five high schools this year! She 
generated three applicants in an area 
usually not productive for the College. 

This data shows that AARs are a vital 
part of the extended admissions staff. 
The following women have proven their 
continuing commitment and concern for 
the College through the many hours 
spent in representing their alma mater.

A New Dimension 

Return to College Program Grows 

By Dr. Julia T. Gary 
Dean of the College 

Seven members of the class of 1979 
constitute an unusual group in the 
history of Agnes Scott College. They are 
the first graduates of a program designed 
especially for women whose college 
education has been interrupted or. 
perhaps, never begun. In the past, an 
occasional former Agnes Scott student 
who did not graduate has returned to the 
College to complete degree require- 
ments. A few years ago, however, we 
instituted a special program for all 
qualified women who wish to come to 
college, either part-time or full-time. We 
call it the Return to College Program. 
The women in this program are permit- 
ted to take lighter loads than a student of 
usual college age and to extend their 
academic programs beyond the tradi- 
tional four years. But they are in regular 

college classes with other students; they 
are subject to the same degree require- 
ments as other students; they are graded 
by the same academic standards. 

In the spring of 1972, Martha Jane 
Davis Jones x'51 came to talk with Laura 
Steele and me about the possibility of 
completing degree requirements. Little 
did she realize that her return to college 
for the 1972-73 session planted a seed 
which would be the beginning of a 
significant program for Agnes Scott. 
Martha Jane Jones received her degree 
from Agnes Scott in June of 1973 with a 
major in Bible and religion and has since 
earned the M.A.T. at Emory University. 
Several years later, Helen McGowan 
French x"54 and Frances Sommerville 
Guess x"53 returned to complete their 
Agnes Scott degree requirements. 

Angle Benham pauses to visit with a friend at the library entrance. 

During the 1973-74 session, Assis 
Dean of the College Mildred Love I 
"61, then Director of Admissions 
Rivers Payne Hutcheson '59, Presi 
Perry, and I began to discuss 
possibility that there were other wo 
in the Atlanta area who might wis

1974 there were fourteen women

tion Program" at Agnes Scott. Co

the program sponsored by a grou 
women's colleges and funded in pai 
the Carnegie Corporation, arrived it 
office in the fall of 1974, while Mill 
Petty was on leave, to learn al 
college administration. As we ta 
about the possible directions that 
work for the year might take, it 
apparent that the Continuing Educa 
Program was the thing which spa 
Connie's interest. During her yea 
Agnes Scott, Connie Henderson n 
an all-out effort to strengthen the 
gram, searching out areas for rec 
ment, conducting interviews, 
publicity material, and devoting far n 
time to the beginnings of a program 
we might otherwise have been abl 
do. During that first year, the fac 
endorsed the idea and in March 
adopted a statement of purpose

lian K. Kiel had had only one or 
courses at a junior college near 
ago before she enrolled at Agnes 

in 1975. Lillian selected art as her 
r and was president of Art Club 
g her senior year. In addition to 
n, there were three other graduates 
e Kiel family in early June — a son 

high school, a second son from 

Georgia Tech, and a third son from a 
graduate program at Georgia State. Both 
Lillian's husband and her mother came 
to graduation on June 3. Lillian will 
devote some time to her cooperative 
husband and six supportive children 
before she begins to work with art 

Catherine Paul, formerly a secretary 
for Georgia Power, also entered Agnes 
Scott in 1975. Catherine married soon 
after completing high school and had 
been busy supporting her young son. 
Through research in psychology for her 
Independent Study on rape and for a 
special study on the battered woman, 
Catherine became interested in becom- 
ing a probation officer or a counselor 
within the prison system. She plans to 
enter a graduate program in criminal 
justice at Georgia State. 

Mary Christina (Crissy) Jensen was a 
medical secretary and had done some 
study at DeKalb College and Georgia 
State. Her degree with a major in 
English was conferred "With Honor." 
Crissy has two children and is expecting 
a baby in late June. 

Two former Agnes Scott students 

complete the group of RTC graduates in 
1979. Ellanor Cullens entered Agnes 
Scott in the fall of 1969 but withdrew 
before completing her degree. She has 
worked for MARTA and for Emory and 
has done some work with professional 
theatre. Ellanor"s major was psy- 

The baby of the RTC class of 1979 is 
Gretchen Keyser. Gretchen withdrew 
from Agnes Scott in 1973 and was 
employed by Days Inn as a department 
supervisor. During her year and a half as 
an RTC student majoring in political 
science, Gretchen continued her work 
with Days Inn. 

The major thrust of the RTC program 
is toward the adult woman who has not 
yet received a college degree. The 
program is available also to women who 
have previously received degrees but 
who wish to come as unclassified stu- 
dents to pursue a particular course of 
study. During the five years of its 
existence, the RTC program has grown 
from the fourteen students who began in 
the fall of 1974 to almost sixty students 
enrolled in the 1978-79 session.

working with the RTC program and finds 
that the job pays significant dividends. 
She begins to work with a student while 
the student is applying for admission and 
continues to assist in awarding financial 
aid. in evaluating previous academic 
credit, and in planning course programs. 
She is advisor to the RTC students from 
the time of application until graduation. 
Also closely identified with the RTC 
program is Dr. Miriam K. Drucker, 
chairman of the Department of Psychol- 
ogy. Mrs. Drucker, at the students' 
invitation, conducts weekly discussions 
on topics of the students" choice, ranging 
from academic programs to alteration of

The very blunt population statistics 
projected for the 1980s are, in them- 
selves, a justification for a Return to 
College Program at Agnes Scott. It can 
also be said that Agnes Scott, as a 
woman's college, has a peculiar respon- 
sibility for the development of women of 
all ages. But above and beyond all the 
rational statements of justification that 
one might set forth for such a program is 
the simple fact that these women contri- 
bute significantly to the life of the 
College. They are delightful and 
stimulating students. They are alumnae 
of whom the College is proud! ▲

^ARTA Sparks New Growth in Decatur 

By Jet HarpL' 

THOSE alumnae who have been 
y from Agnes Scott for a while, be it 
ittie as a year, the environs are 
iging. Decatur is one of the sites of a 

rapid transit system which, at 
ent, links this part of DeKalb 
nty to downtown Atlanta. This 
dy new transportation system is 
iing alterations throughout the At- 
1 area, and Decatur is no exception 

new growth and life enlivening the 
and strengthing its economy. 

June .^0. 1979. MARTA (Met- 
Htan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authori- 
)pened its first stretch of the rapid 

system from Avondale Estates 
ugh Decatur to Georgia State Uni- 
ty in downtown Atlanta. This si,x 
seven tenths mile stretch is the first 
of MARTA's proposed fifty-three 
rapid transit system to open and be 
nto operation. 

le East Line run from Avondale 
tes to downtown Atlanta has already 
ght changes to Decatur. New shops 
■estaurants have opened or are in the 
ess of opening, traffic has been 
jted around Court Square, and the 

air plaza over the Decatur subway 
Dn (the only subway stop on the East 
) is now a gathering spot during 
1 hours. 

;catur"s new centerpiece is located 
:ont of the old courthouse. The 
;en million dollar station is a tri- 
structure, consisting of the 600-foot 

platform or boarding area, the 
ourse or fare collection area, and 
plaza. Two twenty-five foot high 
ght murals by Georgia artist Larry 
laster penetrate both levels of the 
>n, and the skylights provide the 
orm level with natural light, 
e City of Decatur, with its three 

on the East Line (Avondale Es- 

Decatur, and East Lake), has the 
est number of stops on a rapid 
it system of any city per capita in 
ivorld. The East Line dedication 
nonies were held June 30 at the East 

station, with the system offically 
ing then. The dedication of the 
tur station was held July 1 with the 
i Quintet of the Atlanta Symphony 
i Dixie Land band performing (at 

ent times) that afternoon. During 
wo weeks prior to the system's 

ng, the City of Decatur provided 

Betsy Broadwell '79 and Wee Leng Chan '81 visit 
Court Square entrance to MARTA station. 

MARTA train stops in Decatur's underground station. 

live entertainment and an artists' festival 
on the plaza. 

Decatur mayor Ann Avant Crichton 
'61 was elected one month after the 
MARTA referendum passed in 1971. so, 
as she says, she has been "living with 
it." She is excited by the new develop- 
ments and sees MARTA's presence in 
Decatur as "so much more than a 
transportation system. It has recaptured 
Court Square for what it was — a 'people 
place.'" She views MARTA as the 

catalyst toward meeting several of the 
city's economic and neighborhood se- 
curity goals by strengthening the tax 
base and providing an alternative to the 

Decatur's new growth surge and new 
vitality promise to continue with 
MARTA estimating that by 1990, the 
Decatur Station alone will serve as many 
as 12,000 people daily on the ten-minute 
ride to or from downtown Atlanta. A

Association Plans New Yorl^ Trip 


Thk Agnes Scott Ai a^mnak Association 
invites you to a come on a three-day trip to New 
York city from October 10 through I?, 1979. The 
stay in New ^ork will include three morning 
tours around Manhattan, tickets to a Broadway 
play, lunch at President Cissie Spiro Aidinoff s 
and a meeting with New York alumnae, and a 
formal dinner at an elegant cluh. Kvery afternoon 
will be free for more sightseeing, museum-going, 
or shopping. We will stay at the centrally-located 
Wellington Prince George for the three nights. 

Plans are for a group of alumnae and friends 
leaving from Atlanta; another group who will 
arrange their own travel and meet the Atlanta 
group in New York and also stay at the 
Wellington; and a third group of New York area 
alumnae who will be invited to the luncheon and 
meeting at Cissie's. 

The three morning tours planned are L'ptown 
sightseeing and the Morris-Jumel Mansion; an 
East Side. West Side tour of New York; and a 
tour of the United Nations. The Uptown sight- 
seeing tour will go from Lincoln Center to 
Riverside Church. Grant's tomb. Columbia Uni- 
versity, and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 
largest Gothic cathedral in the world. Featured 
will be a visit to the Morris-Jumel Mansion, the 
beautiful colonial house built in \7f^5. the oldest 
residence still standing in Manhattan. The man- 
sion served as Washington's headquarters in 1776 
and contains thirteen rooms of original and 
period furniture. Luncheon at Cissie's will follow 
this morning's tour. After lunch and the after- 
noon's free time, the group may attend Evita. Ihe 
new Broadway smash hit comedy. 

The East Side. West Side tour will go from 
Lincoln Center to the Battery, from Wall Street 
to Chinatown — a tour designed to convey the 
essence and flavor of New York, its ethnic 
characteristics and its rich cultural history. The 
high ( !) spot of the tour will be the observation 
deck on the 1 10th floor of the World Trade 
Center from which one can see all of New York. 

The formal dinner will follow this afternoon 
free time. 

The third morning's tour is of the L'nitt 
Nations. The tour of the buildings and beautif 
conference rooms provides information on tl 
aims, organization, and activities of the buildinj 
as well as an explanation of the art 
architecture of the buildings, e.g., the ChagE 
stained glass windov\ and the large mural by Pi 
Krohg. There will also be time to visit tl 
tax-free International Bazaar and the Bookston

Jers was a concern that distinguished

zzical truth for an English major. So 
ch of what prepared me for life I

iding by tough and painful decisions I 
e remembered so often Descartes' 
'ice to proceed resolutely forward, 
'ing determined it the best way, not 
>wing feeble reasons to deter and 
ert us. And Pascal: "Le coeur a ses 
ons, que la raison ne connait point." 

And there we expose the taproot of 
Agnes Scott, that "des choses 
serieuses," matters of consequence, 
involve both the mind and the heart. To 
carry us through an impersonal world of 
nuclear power and computers, we have 
learned here that the finest technician is 
not necessarily the greatest pianist, and 
the most perfect prose can be the most 
useless, and that it is possible to see 
sheep through the walls of a box, as did 
the little prince, and that "all roads lead 
to the abodes of men," and that "what 
makes the desert beautiful is that some- 
where it hides a well." Here a great 
teacher not only traverses the classroom 
but also the quadrangle. It is not just an 
academic, but also a curbstone experi- 

Of all the gifts Agnes Scott has given 
me, none has shadowed me more closely 
than Antoine de Saint-Exupery's The 
Little Prince, to which Miss Allen intro- 
duced me. It has inspired, soothed, 
encouraged, amused, refreshed, and sus- 
tained me with its wisdom. 

A pilot downed in the north African 
desert meets the little prince, who comes 
from a planet scarcely larger than a 
house, with one rose bush, and three 
volcanoes the size of footstools. The 
Rose is vain but beautiful. He loves and 
cares for her. The little prince encoun- 
ters a fox in the desert, who makes him a 
present of a very simple secret. 

"And now here is my secret, a very 

simple secret; 
It is only with the heart that one can 

see rightly; 
what is essential is invisible to the 

"L'essentiel est invisible pour les 

yeux," the little prince repeated, so 

that he would be sure to remember. 

"It is the time you have wasted for 
your rose that makes your rose so 

"C'est le temps que j'ai perdu pour ma 
rose . . ." said the little prince, so 
that he would be sure to remember. 

In a world pushing forward and 
backward with logarithmic speed, a 
world in which a Mary Leakey shows us 
that Longfellow's metaphorical "foot- 
prints in the sands of time" were cast in 
volcanic ash in a Tanzanian desert 3.6 
million years ago, 1 want to present a 
concrete metaphor.

Bess Patton 

Latin Scholarship Established 

The RECE^TL^ endowed Lillian Ger- 
trude Patton Latin Scholarship Fund of 
SIO.OOO honors this 1920 Agnes Scott 
graduate for her untiring devotion to the 
Latin language and her forty-nine years 
of distinguished and dedicated teaching 
of this language. The scholarship is 
awarded on the basis of financial need 
and for excellence in Latin. 

Behind this gift lies a story of a 
lifetime of devotion between two sisters 
in Chattanooga. Tennessee. The older. 
Miss Bess Patton. had begun her career 
as a talented music teacher when her 
sister Lillian became interested in at- 
tending Agnes Scott — but lacked the 
funds to do so. Miss Bess was deter- 
mined that Lillian should come and 
scrimped and saved from her earnings to 
provide the necessary funds. At times 
these included not only her college fees 
but also her spending money and 

After receiving her degree from Agnes 
Scott in 1920. Lillian returned to Chat- 
tanooga High School, from which she 

had graduated in 1916. to begin her long 
and successful career as a teacher. Some 
summers of graduate study in Latin at 
Columbia University enriched her teach- 
ing. During her years of teaching she 
says that she must have taught at least 
7,500 students and worked with several 
thousand more in school organizations. 
Her greatest joy was to see these young 
people gain an appreciation and en- 
thusiasm for Latin. 

Now that Lillian has retired from 
teaching, her sister. Miss Bess, is anx- 
ious for young people to continue to 
benefit from Lillian's love of Latin. 
Originally Miss Bess had included in her 
will a provision for this scholarship. This 
spring, however, she and Lillian both 
decided that they would enjoy knowing 
who some of the recipients would be. As 
a consequence, she made her gift to 
establish the scholarship in a special 
presentation at their home. Thus this 
love and thoughtfulness of Miss Bess for 
her sister will soon begin helping many 
young women attend Agnes Scott. A

ress and felt much closer to the campus 
after hearing Dr. Perry. After lunch we

A group of prospective and currently 
enrolled students in the Jacksonville area 
met with alumnae at a Sunday afternoon 
reception March 18 at the home of Betty 
Ann Green Rush '53. President 
Elizabeth Lynn "27 reported that guests 
shared news of their recent activities and 
plans for the future. During the business

Los Angeles 

Kansas City 

Agnes Scotters in the Kansas City area 
met May 26 with several alums attending 
the Presbyterian General Assembly 
there and enjoyed a visit with Dr. Mary 
Boney Sheats, chairman of the College's 
Department of Bible and Religion, over 
luncheon at the Italian Gardens. An 
exchange of reminiscences and ques- 
tions and answers with Dr. Sheats was 
the "program." The group included 
Ellen Davis Laws '31, Nina Broughton 
Gaines '4L Grace Walker Winn '41 
(whose husband Albert was elected the 
new moderator of the Presbyterian 
Church in the U.S.), Lilla Powell Jones 
'46, Marie Woods Shannon '51, Ann 
Williams Wedaman '63 (who very kindly 
made the arrangements for everyone), 
and her Kansas City friend Kakie Wil- 


Edith Towers Davis '60 had a highly 
successful day on March 10. As presi- 
dent of the Kentuckiana Club, she 
presided over a meeting of alums at 
midday in Louisville, and as real estate 
agent, she made a house sale that 
afternoon. Dr. Jack Brooking, chairman 
of the College's theatre department, 
honor guest and luncheon speaker, gave 
a slide-illustrated talk on Agnes Scott's 
recent stage presentations and the work 
of that department. "Dr. Brooking was a 
delightful guest and rapidly established 
rapport with our group," wrote Edith. 
He included an update on various as- 
pects of campus life and answered 
alumnae questions. The luncheon took 
place at the Dutch Stable, a restaurant in 
Bakery Square, which is a restored area 
of the city. 

A large group of West Coast alumnae 
traveled, in some cases quite a distance, 
to meet together March 3 at Wilshire 
Country Club in Los Angeles for lun- 
cheon. Jeannette Wright '68. with great 
enthusiasm and competence, made all 
the arrangements and presided at the 
gathering. Katherine Akin '76, assistant 
to the College's admissions director, was 
in the city contacting high schoolers who 
might be interested in coming to Agnes 
Scott and gave alums a welcome update 
on the campus and ways in which they 
could help contact students. 


Sitting in the warm spring sunshine on 
the back patio of the Hay House, Macon 
alumnae joined visiting Atlanta alums 
for a picnic luncheon April 5. The ornate 
and impressive old mansion is listed in 
the National Register of Historic Places 
and is now owned by the Georgia Trust 
for Historic Preservation, given to it by 
the Hay family. Visitors were interested 
to learn that Sally Fortson McLemore 
'57, president of the Macon alumnae, 
was a great niece of Mr. Hay and had 
played in the home as a child. Mary 
Alice Isele Johnson '71 was named 
president for the coming term.

Brown McKenzie flew to Michigan for a 
meeting of this group of alums at 
Machus' Sly Fox Restaurant in Birming- 
ham, Mich., May 12. Retiring Co- 
Chairman Mary Bell McConkey Taylor 
'28 wrote that the group thoroughly 
enjoyed Viriginia's enthusiastic report of 
Agnes Scott of 1979. The chairman 
commented in her report that she was 
glad to see many new faces and that each 
one had a chance to tell something about 
her current activities. "Agnes Scott can 
be proud of her alumnae in this area who 
are rearing families, accepting respon- 
sibilities in their communities, and, in 
several cases, working as well." Becky 
Andrews McNeil '42, the other co- 
chairman, arranged the luncheon. In- 
coming chairmen are Susan Alexander 
Boone '62 and Phyllis Hess Twinney '54.

the title of the talk by Dr. Jack 
on of the English department for 
nae in the St. Louis area April 6. 

Word came from club president Virginia 
Andrews Trovillion '48 afterwards that 
his presentation was "interesting, 
thoughtful and sensitive ... he is a 
marvelous representative of ASC. Just 
wish we could go back to Agnes Scott 
and take a few more courses. We all had 
such a good time." A candlelight tour of 
Sappington House preceded the dinner 
party there. Anne Felker Cataldo '67 and 
husband Arthur (who took pictures for 
the Quarterly) hosted Dr. Nelson during 
his stay. Ann Roberts Divine '67 is the 
incoming president.

President Catherine Auman DeMaere

College. The club voted to send a 
contribution of SlOO to the Agnes Scott

had represented the College at seven 
high schools during the fall.

beyond that time, through her sponsor-

and through her active interest in her 
students, new and old. 

Harrison and Montague have intro- 
duced their biology text with the follow- 
ing thought: 

Whereas it is the special purpose 
of the scientist to deal with facts 
analytically and impersonally, he 
is not necessarily a bad scientist if 
the sum total of what he learns 
appeals to his emotions ... It is 
the Privilege of scientists, as well 
as of all other men, to appreciate 
and relish the marvels they 

She is identified in my mind with that 
idea. Because she is sensitive to the 
"marvels," so are her students, and so 
are theirs.

Her students are another monument 
she has built. From beginning Latin to 
upper level courses in Vergil and 
Euripides, she communicated her love of 
the classics in an infectious way. If a 
student desired to study an author not 
listed in the curriculum in a directed 

reading course, Mrs. Young would o

Although we students are tang 
monuments to Myrna Young's suc( 
as a teacher, inside each of us is 
intangible imprint that, as a person, 
left on our lives. She gave her 
cheerfully and wholeheartedly to e\ 
endeavor and inspired each of us to 

She seems much too vigorous to h 
reached retirement age and will re 
only from teaching; it is certain she 
never give up her interest in the scl

utstanding Alumnae for 1 979 

Virginia Brown McKenzie '47 

One of the highlights of Alumnae Day each April 
is the recognition of three outstanding alumnae whose 
sustained achievement has come to the attention of the 
Association's Executive Board. Members of the Execu- 
tive Committee of the Alumnae Association Board 
consider outstanding alumnae in three categories; dis- 
tinguished career, community service, and service to 
the College. Some alumnae qualify in all three fields, 
but one alumna in each group is selected to be honored 
at our Annual Meeting on Alumnae Day. 

The three recipients of our Outstanding Alumnae 
awards this year were: Martha Stackhouse Grafton '30, 
distinguished career; Goldie Ham '19, community 
service; and Penny Brown Barnett '32, service to the 

Martha Stackhouse Grafton was an outstanding stu- 
dent at Agnes Scott, where she was elected to Phi Beta 
Kappa. Mortar Board, and the presidency of the Stu- 
dent Government. She received her M.A. from North- 
western University in 1936, 

Martha's professional life was spent at Mary Baldwin 
College as teacher, assistant dean, registrar, dean of the 
College, and three times acting president. 

In the Presbyterian church she has served as elder, 
as moderator of Shenandoah Presbytery, and as chair- 
man of the Council on Church and Societv. 

Martha Stackhouse Grafton has had two buildings 
named in her honor, the library at Mary Baldwin Col- 
lege and the theater at James Madison University, 
where she has served as vice-regent of the Board of 

Martha and husband Thomas have three daughters, 
two of whom, twins Letty and Lib, graduated from 
Agnes Scott in 1955. Of her five grandchildren, one. 
Claire Hall, graduated from Agnes Scott this June, 

Also having a distinguished career hut cited for her 
service to the community was Goldie Suttle Ham '19, 
who began practicing medicine in Houston, Texas, in 
1926. An obstetrician and gynecologist, she was one 
of three women physicians in Houston at that time. 
After forty-one years of service, she retired in 1967. 
Dr. Ham always found time to address high school 
groups about careers in medicine. She said, "To he a 
good physician, 1 think you must have a real desire for 
a service profession because in medicine you provide 
service to other people." 

She has served on the boards of the Young Women's 
Christian Association and the Sheltering Arms Agency 
Services for the Aging as well as being a founding mem- 
ber of St. Philip Presbyterian Church. 

In 1978 she was selected to receive the Houstonian 
of the Year Award, presented to individuals who pro- 
vide outstanding role models to young people and who 
contribute significantly to Houston's welfare. 

Goldie Ham married Gordon Bell Hanson in 1932. 
Both of their two daughters, Ann Hanson Merklein '55 
and Elizabeth Hanson Duerr '58 were graduated from 
Agnes Scott. 

For service to the College the committee chose 
Penny Brown Barnett '32, who as a student edited the 
yearbook and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and 
Mortar Board. For two years after graduation, she 
served as the College's first field secretary, presenting 
the College to high schools and other groups through- 
out the nation. 

As a volunteer. Penny has contributed her time and 
talent as president of the Atlanta Club and as presi- 
dent of the national Alumnae Association. At the end 
of her term of office as president of the Alumnae 
Association, she was a Trustee of the College, During 
this era she laid the groundwork for our Alumnae Fund 
Plan, for which she has been an agent since its 

She is recognized as an outstanding Biblical scholar 
and has been teaching an interdenominational Bible 
class continuously since 1947. She has also served on 
medical, educational, and civic boards while managing 
a home for her doctor husband and five children. 

Through her exemplary involvement in the life of 
the city of Atlanta. Penny Brown Barnett has brought 
favorable attention to the quality of the product of 
Agnes Scott, her graduates. 

At the time these three awards were given, the 
speeches of presentation and response were so eloquent 
and scholarly that all who listened were moved to 
acknowledge the high calibre of abilities exhibited by 
Agnes Scott alumnae. 

Many of our alumnae need to be recognized. Won't 
you help us by listing your nominations on the printed
