WEET JDRIAK 

Alumnae Magazine 










I., 



t A 



Dear Alumnae and Friends, 

On Christmas Eve, Central Virginia was treated to an unexpected snowfall — just 
enough to transform the campus into a winter wonderland on Christmas morning. I can- 
not describe the beauty and peace of Sweet Briar that morning as I walked my two 
dogs — ours the only footprints, for a few hours, in this pristine world. 

Fortunately, the snow was the only surprise to occur over the holidays. In a world 
braced for the possibility of Y2K computer failures and millennial terrorism, the year 
2000 arrived without a hitch, thanks at Sweet Briar, to the good offices of our excellent 
computer support staff. 

I know you were impressed, as I was, by the global nature of this New Year's celebra- 
tion. Many hours before midnight, at my family's gala millennium party at Sweet Briar 
House, we learned firsthand of the turn of the clock to 2000 in Australia and Europe, 
from guests who had received word via computer. Television stations broadcast count- 
downs in Sydney, Beijing, Moscow, and Paris — more important, given Y2K fears, than 
those in New York and Los Angeles. 

The entire millennial event served to underscore just how interconnected and interde- 
pendent the world has become. This issue of your Aluimiae Magazine focuses on the ways 
in which Sweet Briar is preparing students to meet the challenges of globalization. While 
many colleges and universities are just beginning to internationalize their institutions, 
Sweet Briar is in the enviable position of building on existing programs and establishing 
new ones. Both our International Affairs Department and study abroad programs enjoy 
national reputations. 

Our look at the international side of Sweet Briar would not be complete without rep- 
resentative alumnae. The myriad achievements of all the Sweet Briar women we tracked 
down for this issue are impressive. Our alumnae are working as diplomats, scholars, 
lawyers, professors, businesswomen, anthropologists, writers, and volunteers literally all 
over the globe. Their experience and insights demonstrate both the value of a Sweet Briar 
education and the College's continuous need to reshape and expand its curricular and co- 
curricular offerings in response to new international opportunities. 

Underlying Sweet Briar's efforts in international education is the goal ot achieving 
peace, justice, and prosperity for people of all nations. It is a vision we are determined to 
uphold and act on long after millennial-inspired hopes for the new century fade into 
memory. 

Larry and I wish you and your families health and happiness throughout the New Year.

Sweet Briar College is larger than it looks. 
The physical campus — 3,300 acres of woodlands and 
lakes — does not begin to tell the stor\'. Sweet Briar is big — 
as big as the world— 126,080,000,000 acres big. 

Long before words like "internationalization" and "globaliza- 
tion" became as common as "um" or "v'know," Sweet Briar had 
already established an internationally-respected Junior Year 
Abroad Program. The College's mission to "prepare women 
to be active, responsible members of a world community" 
has been carried out across the curriculum as far back as 
anyone can recall. Sweet Briar's founder, Indiana Fletcher 
WLUiams, spoke French and completed her formal educa- 
tion with a two-year tour of Europe and the Holy Lands 
beginning in 1844. 

Peggy Aurand '64, an attorney specializing in Latin 
America, remembers, "The exchange students, the girls 
from Saint Andrews wandering the campus in their red 
robes, and the speakers from other countries who came to 
campus — all made us realize that there was a big wide 
world out there and we better see some of it." The same 
holds true today. 
Currendy there are 23 international students on campus. 
Thirty-five percent of the junior class studied abroad last year. 
Facult)' research and innovation, formal and informal alumnae 
connections, ties with the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, 
and events like the Sweet Briar Seminars 1999-2000 International 
Writers series make the campus a crossroads of international 
friendships, scholarship, and artistic expression. 

"This international dimension is a big part of what Sweet Briar 
is about, so much so that we are not always conscious of it," savs 
Jeffrey Key, International Affairs Department chairman and asso- 
ciate professor For Professor Key, and for the College in general, 
meeting the challenges of Sweet Briar's second century includes 
becoming increasingly intentional about making use of our dis- 
tinctive international assets. 

Right now, in the year 2000, the College has an enviable inter- 
national infrastructure. We have strong abroad programs in Paris 
and Seville, as well as a number of affiliations throughout the 
world. Sweet Briar is one of the elite "International 50" private 
colleges noted for their contributions to international affairs, 
including students who attain advanced degrees in international 
studies and foreign languages. The College is among the "most 
wired" in the nation, a tool that supports a global curriculum and 
international career connections. But, at the turn of the millen- 
nium, it seems all of this amounts to an excellent start. We cannot 
afford to rest on our laurels. 

Ambassador Harriet Coons Babbitt '69, deputy administrator 
of the United States Agency for International Development, is on 
the front lines of the international challenges and opportunities 
current students will face upon graduation. She says, "AH of us are 
in the middle of something ver\' large which we understand very

poorly. That is, the whole process of globalization. It affects 
everything from how diseases move across borders, to how 
we communicate with one another, to how we deal with 
terrorism, to how we exchange cultural standards and val- 
ues. Absolutely even' aspect of our lives and the lives ol 
everyone on the planet is affected by it. 

"We don't know all the twists and turns it will take. 
But at this moment in history, all roads lead to globaliza- 
tion. It is a wonderful time to be entering into the interna- 
tional affairs arena." 

This issue of the Alumnae Magazine offers a snapshot — a 
quick, incomplete glimpse — of where we are and where we 
hope to go in a rapidly changing world community. 



Ambassador Harriet C. 
Babbitt '69 Encourages 
Liberal Arts Undergraduates 
to Indulge Their Interests and 
Explorelheir Possibilities 





Thirteen years ago, the 
Alumnae Magazine caught up 
with Spanish major and attorney, 
Hattie Coons Babbitt '69, on the cam- 
paign trail. It was 1987; her husband, Bruce 
Babbitt, was seeking the Democratic nomination 
for president. Since then, Hattie's desire to "make a real 

contribution in the areas of education, children's issues, and the environment" has found expression in 
her positions at the top ranks of government service. 

In 1997, Ambassador Babbitt was sworn in as deputy administrator of the U.S. Agency for International 
Development (USAID). USAID is the government agency that provides economic assistance and 
humanitarian relief worldwide: helping countries to recover from conflicts and disasters, promoting 
economic growth and agricultural development, engaging in democratic reforms, advancing education 
and training, and protecting the environment. 

The USAID appointment was a natural segue from her previous position as the U.S. permanent repre- 
sentative to the Organization of American States (OAS). From 1993 to 1997, she led the successful 
U.S. effort to reform the OAS, making the organization more responsive and effective in carrying out 
high-priority hemispheric goals— emphasizing democracy, human rights, and sustainable development 
and trade, 

"In my job," says Hattie, "the most useful preparation I had was in Spanish and law. If, as a 1 7-year- 
old, I had been calculating a career at the State Department, I probably never would have picked 
Spanish as a major. But it turned out to be the perfect skill. 

"In the political science arena, you can and should do a bit of wandering around. I meandered 
through my undergraduate career. 1 loved art history, literature, and language— all of which were 
underscored by my Junior Year in Madrid. I turned my nine-month, two-semester experience in Spain 
into 15 months by tacking on the summers before and after for travel. 

"If you had asked me at Sweet Briar if I imagined myself as a diplomat, negotiating treaties, it would 
have sounded more incredible to me than going to the moon. I had no idea that I was, in many ways, 
preparing for what I'm doing today."

Global and Innovative: 
Professor Berg Discusses 
SBC's History Department 



"Consider this," asks Professor Berg. "It's 1977. A 
history department of four people has one opening. 
One opening. Out of all the applicants, they hire a specialist in pre-colo- 
nial Africa. I was hired 22 years ago, fresh out from Berkeley. I am here 
because this department is committed to being global. 

"The department's commitment existed long before I arrived," says Profes- 
sor Berg. "Professor Lysbeth Muncy literally established the field of German 
social history. Professor loan Kent was well known for her work on the 
legal history of Great Britain. I wouldn't put myself on the same level with 
these people. But, there are scholars in Europe who assume that Sweet 
Briar College has a large African studies institute." 

According to Professor Berg, "One of the great joys of teaching at Sweet 
Briar is the opportunity to convert cutting-edge research into courses all the 
time. We're not locked into a rigid program." 

Berg, who teaches and publishes as an African historian, has also devel- 
oped courses in modern European military history and modern Israel. His 
most recent offering is "The Idea of Race." Though some may seem unre- 
lated, these courses are outgrowths of his main research and writing. For 
example, in the process of answering military questions pertaining to 
Africa, Professor Berg became engaged in a wider field of study. The result 
is the course "War and Society in Modern Europe." 

"This is the way real innovation takes place within the department," 
explains Professor Berg. "Real innovation is not the product of programs. It 
is not the product of managerial planning. Rather, it is the product of schol- 
arly work. The thinking is: Hire the best history scholars and let them do 
their thing. The department may develop in ways you can't plan— and 
that's good." 




Professor Gerry Berg makes a point in class. 



Traditional and 
Cutting-Edge: 

Government and 
International Affairs at SBC 



Sweet Briar's international 
attairs major is based in the 
Department of Government. It 
is where students begin their 
studies with essential courses 
like "Introduction to Interna- 
tional Politics" and it is where 
they gather tor "Senior Semi- 
nar." In between, international 
afitairs majors may be spotted 
elsewhere, studying Latin 
American culture, African his- 
tory, commercial Italian, or 
Taoism. They may spend junior 
year abroad, extern with multi- 
national corporations over 
spring break, or take a semester 
at American University. This is 
what Jeffrey Kev, department 
chairman and associate profes- 
sor, calls the "multiplier effect." 
Input from other departments 
and offices dramatically 
increases the scope of the 
major. 

"Government and interna- 
tional affairs," says Professor 
Key, "is a fairly wide-open and 
flexible major. The College has 
international expertise and 
resources in disciplines ranging 
from anthropology to religion." 

Professor Key's short-term 
goals include identifying Sweet 
Briar's existing international 
assets and then rethinking the 
major to ensure that majors are 
benefiting from all that is avail- 
able to them on and off 
campus. Another related goal 
is adding new courses and 
creating co-curricular opportu- 
nities in response to world 
events, emerging technologies, 
innovative graduate school pro- 
grams, and new career possibil- 
ities. 



"We want our majors to be 
prepared for a whole host of 
international experiences, stud- 
ies, and job opportunities — 
both traditional and 
cutting-edge," says Professor 
Key. "Last April, for example, 
I was invited to observe the 
Foreign Service examination. 
It was a great privilege. Histor- 
ically, it has been a closed 
process. The person who 
got me in the door, Steve 
Eisenbraun, is on the Foreign 
Service Board of Examiners. 
We met at the American Club 
in Bangladesh and now he is 
coming to Sweet Briar — for 
the second time — to talk to 
students about international 
careers in government." 

While some international 
affairs majors follow traditional 
paths to the State Department 
and other government agencies, 
others are taking new paths. 
"Governments and diplomats

are not the only actors in inter- 
national relations," says Profes- 
sor Key. "AH over the world, 
people are organizing them- 
selves spontaneously around 
shared interests. Women's 
groups are talking to women's 
groups. Environmentalists are 
joining together. Health-care 
workers are mobilizing in crisis 
situations. We call them non- 
profits in the United States, but 
globally they're referred to as 
non-governmental organiza- 
tions or NGOs." 

To illustrate his point. Pro- 
fessor Key uses the experience 
of international aftairs and 
French major Amy Woods '95 
(see Alumnae Magazine, Win- 
ter 1999). After receiving her 



master's degree in foreign ser- 
vice from Georgetown Univer- 
sity in 1997, Amy went to 
work for InterAction, a coali- 
tion of non-profit organizations 
providing humanitarian assis- 
tance worldwide. She served as 
a program associate tor Inter- 
Action's Commission on the 
Advancement of Women 
through 1999. Today Amy 
works in the San Francisco 
field office of CARE, one of 
the world's largest private inter- 
national development and relief 
organizations. 

Professor Key's own research 
centers on South Asia: interna- 
tional relations and U.S. 
regional policy; the political 
role of NGOs; and ethnic poli- 



Replacing "Chaps and Maps": 

Eileen Scully '78 Joins the Princeton University 

History Department 

Eileen Scully 78, a history and politics major, is now an assistant professor 
of history at Princeton University. There, many of the areas she covers are a 
continuation of interests she developed at Sweet Briar: American foreign rela- 
tions, 20th-century imperialism. Pacific Basin history, international utopi- 
anism, and international history. 

After graduation, Eileen studied in Taiwan and Hong Kong through the Yale 
in China program. She received a master's in Russian Area Studies from 
Georgetown University in 1983 and a doctorate in U.S. -Asian Relations from 
Georgetown in 1994. 

Commenting on her curriculum vitae, Eileen is quick to point out that "It's 
not as lockstep logical as it looks. I'm a historian and we know how to craft a 
good story. My academic career was much more haphazard. I switched my 
major in graduate school five times! Japanese history, Russian history, 
Chinese history— at one point, I was in serious trouble because I had too 
many credits and no major." 

Eileen's indecisiveness in graduate school worked to her advantage in a com- 



tics and federalism in India, 
Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. He 
has done fieldwork in Pakistan, 
Nepal, and Bangladesh, and 
speaks Urdu and German. His 
interest in preparing students 
for "a whole host of interna- 
tional experiences" takes on a 
new meaning when he shares 
his own adventures. 

In August 1988, after a 
plane carrying President 
Mohammed Zia ul-Haq and 
U.S. Ambassador 7\rnold L. 
Raphel exploded in midair, 
Professor Key wisely decided to 
leave Pakistan. His first, hasty 
attempt to bribe his way past 
airport security failed. Getting 
out was not going to be easy. 
Looking out his hotel window, 



he could see the machine guns 
and tanks moving in. 

"An American journalist, 
who had a letter from the 
American Consul General 
requesting a 'free to leave' cer- 
tificate, was flat-out reftised," 
recalls Professor Key. "The 
Superintendent for Foreigner 
Registration in the Karachi 
Central Jail just threw the letter 
back across the table at him. I 
didn't have an officiiil letter or 
any diplomatic backing. But I 
knew Islam. After the Superin- 
tendent finished getting red- 
faced angry with me, I decided 
to appeal to his 'better angels.' I 
reminded him how the Prophet 
Mohammed had taken care of 
travelers, digging wells and 
providing food. Clearly, I had 
negotiated special consideration, 
because he wrote out a chit for 
my 'free to leave' certificate." 

Listening to Professor Key 
recount the story, it is obvious 
that he obtained satisfaction 
not from coolly pushing the 
right cultural buttons at a criti- 
cal moment, but from forging a 
connection vsdth another 
human being in the midst of 
horrible circumstances. And no 
matter how they are 
described — traditional or 
cutting-edge — making these 
types of connections appears to 
be what international affairs at 
Sweet Briar is reaUy all about. 



petitive job market. She went directly from completing her dissertation to 
teaching at Princeton. 

"1 teach international history. American diplomatic history as a field is dying. 
It's hard to teach just American-centered foreign relations. The job is now 
advertised as international history or international studies. Foreign relations 
today is taught with a global perspective. We've gotten away from 'chaps and 
maps'— great men and their game plans— to examine things like global 
economies and peacemaking institutions." 

Eileen is a firm believer in mixing international affairs with overseas study. 
She spent her SBC junior year abroad at Exeter University in England, where 
she gained more than an international perspective on American culture and 
politics. "1 developed a sense of humor and irony at Exeter. The experience of 
being 'outside,' in a place where U.S. concerns made up just a small part of 
the newspaper was eye-opening. It altered my sensibilities. I felt free to com- 
ment and I did. And what came out was surprisingly funny." 
These days, Eileen's sense of humor keeps her going through the challenging 
process of teaching and publishing. Her book Bargaining with tlie State from 
Afar: American Citizenship in Treaty Port China is due out this )'ear from 
Columbia University Press. Imperial Campfollowers: Itinerant Western Prosti- 
tutes in an Age of Empire is forthcoming from the University of North Car- 
olina.

Asian Art and Religion: 

Goulde is EngagecTOn Both Fronts 

John Goulde, director of Asian studies and 
associate professor of religion, is in the process of 
rearranging his "Asian Art" course to take full advantage 
of a major exhibition in the College's Pannell Gallery during the 
Fall 2000 semester. 

Organized by the Museum of Art, Bin Harod in Hafia, Israel, 
"Half-a-Century of Chinese Woodblock Prints: From the Com- 
munist Revolution to the Open-Door Policy and Beyond, 1945- 
1 998" is the first of its kind. According to a press release from 
the University of Pittsburgh, "This is the only time the Chinese 
Embassy has given its support to an exhibition of this sort that is 
not curated by their own Ministry of Culture." 

In addition to the "Half a-Century" exhibition. Professor 
Goulde is gearing up to initiate Sweet Briar's own John B. and 
Irene Vongehr Vincent '40 Collection. The alumna gift, which 
consists of Chinese propaganda pamphlets, records, journals, 
and Taoist talismans, is now completely cataloged and will be 
on display in the Mary Helen Cochran Library during the Spring 
2000 semester. Professor Goulde, who created the "Ukiyoe" 
website with Julia Paris '99, is planning a website for the 
Vincent Collection, featuring the modern artwork included in 
the gift. 

During the Fall 1999 semester. Professor Goulde presented a 
paper, "Changing Perceptions of U.S. -Korea Relations: From 
Cold War Big Brother to Regional 
Arbiter," at the 14th Annual Confer- 
ence of the U.S. -Korea Security Stud- 
ies Council in Arlington, Virginia. At 
the same time, he was preparing for a 
different assignment, arranging a 
panel and coordinating a seminar for 
the American Psychoanalytic Associa- 
tion's meeting in New York, Decem- 
^ ber 16-17, 1999. 

^ jM^ ^^ "I know a little about Freud and 

■^'^^ — ^" even less about psychotherapy," says 
Professor Goulde. "And, that's fine. 
The program is about Korean culture. 
"In May 1 999, I gave a talk at the 
Korea Society in New York. The two-day program examined 
ethical constraints, the status of women, and modern Confucian 
values within Korean society. A member of the audience, a psy- 
chotherapist, contacted me afterwards. As part of its annual 
conference, the American Psychoanalytic Association is 
exploring how global cultures — the socialization 
of children and family relations — impinge upon 
psychotherapy. It's called an Interdisciplinary 
Colloquium on Anthropology-Psychoanalysis. 
The panel I've put together will provide the audi- 
ence with anthropological, literary, philosophical, 
and religious materials which they can then exam- 
ine and discuss within the context of their fields." 

The title of Professor Goulde's paper is "The 
Reluctant Confucian Family: Confucian Ethics in 
Modern Korea." 




Professor Grimm 
in Brussels 

Ken Grimm, professor of 
government, is currently on 
sabbatical leave. This fall, he 
traveled to Brussels to research 
current NATO policy. When 
he returns to campus next year, 
he wlU be scaling back his 
schedule in preparation for 
retirement. 

For 31 years. Professor 
Grimm has headed SBC's 
international affairs major — a 
responsibility he is handing 
over to Professor Jeffrey Key. 



"We have a good working rela- 
tionship," says Professor 
Grimm. "We're both Texans 
and that solves a bunch of 
problems right off the bat. 

"The department has had a 
lot of success. Our alumnae 
have gone on to do great 
things. We want to continue 
that tradition and do even 
more to prepare students for 
the future. Jeff has some great 
ideas about how to bring a new 
dimension to the major. I'm 
looking forward to supporting 
his efforts." 



Professor Richards Writes Again, 
and Again, and Again 

A little over a decade ago, in the summer of 1 989, Professor 
Mike Richards was just sitting down to revise his book, Europe 
1900-1980: A Brief History, when suddenly— BAM— the wall 
came tumbling down! It took him (and the world) a few years to 
recover from the shock. But the new edition — a collaborative 
effort with Paul R. Weibel titled Twentieth Century Europe: A 
Brief History — is on the shelves and a new book is already in 
the works. 

"The European book," says Professor Richards, "has been out 
for a year and is doing fairly well. Our next topic is a bit 
broader — A Brief History of Western Civilization. There's a need 
for it. It is a 200- to 300-page text designed to be supplemented 
with additional lectures, discussions, readings, music, and art- 
work. Now that we have the web, students can visit whole 
museums. It's no longer necessary to put everything into one 
large, expensive textbook." 

Between the completion of Twentieth Century Europe and 
the start of Wesfem Civilization, Professor Richards teamed up 
with Philip R Riley to write Term Paper Resource Guide to 
Twentieth-Century World History. "We wanted a catchier title," 
explains Richards, "but the book is paired 
with an existing American history resource 
guide. We were locked in." 

Written as a research tool for high 
school students, undergraduates, and 
world history teachers, the Term Paper 
Resource Cuide begins with the first 
manned flight and ends with the 
Chinese economy. In addition to thank- 
ing his Sweet Briar colleagues — Jim 
Alouf, Gerald Berg, the late Joan Kent, 
and Christopher Witcombe — Professor 
Richards acknowledges the SBC stu- 
dents in History 147, "The 20th- 
century World," who reviewed some 
of the entries and helped with the 
project. 

Next? Professor Richards has the 
go-ahead from his publisher to start 
another book.

The Hapala Legacy: 
Karin Lawson Look '74 
and Carolyn Leddy '98 

Milan E. Hapala, Carter 
Glass Professor of Government 
Emeritus, died on June 20, 1992. 
A native ot Czechoslovakia, 
Professor Hapala arrived in the 
United States as an exchange 
student in 1938. He joined the 
U. S. Army Air Corps in 1942, 
a year before receiving United 
States citizenship. He came to 
Sweet Briar College in 1947 on 
the recommendation of a col- 
league from Duke University, 
where he earned his doctorate 
in poHtical science. He ended 
up staying for 43 years. 

Professor Hapala taught 
comparative government and 
politics to generations of Sweet 
Briar students. He was an 
authority on both China and 
India. His scholarly interests 
included environmental science 
and law. His research was sup- 
ported by Fulbright, Carnegie, 
and Sweet Briar fellowships, 
among others. He started the 
College's Asian Studies and 
Environmental Studies pro- 
grams. It is no wonder that, 
when the Student Government 
Association established the 
Distinguished Teaching Award 
in 1985, Professor Hapala was 
the first to receive it. 

During his tenure. Professor 
Hapala had the pleasure of see- 
ing former students like Karin 
Lawson Look '74 honored by 
the College for their achieve- 




ments. Today, the Milan E. 
Hapala Scholarship Fund, 
established by his wife and 
children, encourages scholar- 
ship among international affairs 
majors and supports sttidv in 
the Czech Republic. Carolvn 
Leddv '98 is the most recent 
recipient. 

"Professor Hapala did not 
just teach people about the 
world," says Karin, "he showed 
it to them. He opened the 
world up — exposed it — in a 
way that made students want to 
walk out there and see it for 
themselves." 

Karin majored in political 
economy "with a twist." In part 
due to Professor Hapala's influ- 
ence, she modified her major to 
accommodate her interests. 
Instead ot looking at the 
United States' economy and 
domestic issues, she chose to 
examine how politics and eco- 
nomics interact in developing 
countries. 

After graduation, Karin 
worked part-time at the World 
Bank while she attended the 
Johns Hopkins University 
School of Advanced Interna- 
tional Studies. There, she spe- 
cialized in three areas: China, 
economics, and international 
law. With her master's degree 
in hand in 1978, she considered 
pursuing a career in finance. 
But, when it came time to 
make a decision, she chose 
instead to earn an international 
law degree at the University of 
Virginia.

who is currendy the Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Verifica- 
tion and Technology in the 
Bureau of Arms Control, U.S. 
Department of State. 

In 1988, when Karin 
received Sweet Briar's Distin- 
guished Alumna Award, she 
had just finished shuttling from 
Helsinki, to Moscow, to 
Geneva as the legal advisor to 
the Ambassador, negotiating

"I would advise today's 
international affairs majors to 
inform themselves about 
science and technology ques- 
tions," says Karin. "They don't 
need to be engineers or physi- 
cists, but they cannot only be 
political science generalists." 

Professor Hapala would 
have agreed with Karin. His 
research and teaching was 
enhanced by specialization and 
continually evolved to meet the 
demands of the times. When 
he returned to Czechoslovakia 
in 1990, for example, he went 
not only to observe the first 
free election in 40 years, but 
also to discuss pressing envi- 
ronmental protection and pol- 
icy issues with officials there. 

"Sweet Briar gave me the 
confidence to make choices, to

says Karin. "And certainly Pro-

that. Given his background,

why Professdr/Key Ghose 



"I think," says Professor Key, "that every paper and 
news magazine in America has reported that Islam is one of the 
fastest growing religions in this country. Yet, we still tend to 
think of it as an 'outside' phenomenon, something foreign. 
That's why I chose Islam as the topic of Winter Forums 2000 
and why it's great to have Lieutenant Malak Ibn Noel, Jr. as our 
first speaker." 

Lieutenant Noel is the first Muslim chaplain in U.S. Navy 
history. He is stationed in Norfolk, Virginia, at a Naval base that 
provides a synagogue, two chapels, and a mosque. When asked 
how he should be addressed — as lieutenant or as chaplain — he 
answered that his friends call him "Chaps." 

"I don't know all of his life story," says Professor Key. "I hope 
he'll share that part of the story with us in addition to telling us 
about Islam. I do know that he is an American, originally from 
Chicago. And, when I first read about him, I thought: This really 
brings it home. Here is an American serving in an ail-American 
institution and he is a Muslim. I immediately clipped the article 
out of the paper." 

The second speaker in the series, John L. Esposito, is the 
founding director of the Center for Muslim-Christian Under- 
standing: History and International Affairs at Georgetown Uni- 
versity, where he is also a professor of religion and international 
affairs and a professor of Islamic Studies. 

"I can't think of a word that adequately describes John 
Esposito," says Professor Key. "You hear terms like 'world class' 
or 'expert' — well, he is the world-class expert. There is no one 
in Islamic Studies who has not heard of him. Most classes use 
one, if not several, of his texts. He dominates the field. The 
Sweet Briar Alumnae Office was stunned by his curriculum 
vitae and they're used to dealing with prolific scholars. He is in 
demand and the College is honored to have him here." 

Closing out the series is Christina W. Michelmore, a profes- 
sor of history at Chatham College in Pennsylvania, where she 
teaches courses in non-western and world history. Her research 
has focused on cultural and intellectual history, particularly 
western constructs of Middle Eastern peoples and societies. 

"1 saw Christina Michelmore at a Third World Studies Associ- 
ation conference. She presented a paper — originally about the 
Arab-Israeli conflict — that illustrated American attitudes about 
Islam in the media. She looked, for example, at editorial car- 
toons and other images coming at us through print. 

"It struck me that Michelmore's presentation fit perfectly as 
the final piece to the puzzle of how we understand or misun- 
derstand Islam. We bring it home to the United States through 
Lieutenant Noel. We bring in an academic scholar on Islam to 
educate us on Islam in the new millennium and trends in the 
Islamic world — and who better than John Esposito. Then, we 
close with some reflection on popular images that reinforce mis- 
perceptions of the Islamic world." 




he wanted students to under- 
stand not only politics, but the 
whole picture — the rest of the 
world — people, cultures, and 
possibilities." 

Carolyn Leddy '98 did not 
have the opportunity to study 
with Professor Hapala. She has 
met his wife Adelaide, whose 
scholarship helped her to study 
in Prague for her Junior Year 
Abroad. 

"I am the second student to 
carry on the spirit and legacy," 
says Carolyn, "and I hope read- 
ing this inspires someone to 
study in the Czech Republic 
the way Hillary Carlson '96 
inspired me." 

At a Study Abroad Night 
sponsored by SBC's Interna- 
tional Studies Office, Carolyn 
spoke with Hillary about 
spending a year in Prague. "She 
told me that the euphoria of 
the democratic transition was 
dissipating. Now was the ideal 
time to see democracy in devel- 
opment, to see what was work- 
ing and what wasn't working. 
She was right. It was a fabulous 
experience." 

In addition to the Hapala 
Scholarship, Carolyn was 
awarded a competitive National 
Security Education Program 
scholarship. She took classes at 
Charles University and 
arranged an internship in the 
State Department Embassy. 

"I worked three days a week 
in the consulate section, which 
is the not-so-racy part of the 
embassy. That was fme with me 
because I got to experience 
diplomacy on a personal level, 
working on visa adjudication 
and some fraud issues. I inter- 
acted with Czechs on a daily 
basis, going through the inter- 
view process. It was great for 
my language sldlls." 

Carolyn's classes ranged 
from economics to literature. 
One especially memorable 
course examined the political 
transition from a psychological 
perspective, starting in 1989. 
"Watching footage and dis- 



cussing events with professors 
and students who participated 
in and lived through the upris- 
ings, gatherings, and forums 
was unbelievable. I loved my 
Czech lit class too. I didn't 
want the year to end." 

Carolyn is currendy com- 
pleting a professional master's 
degree at Columbia University, 
studying international security 
policy with a double regional 
concentration in Central and 
Eastern Europe. She spent last 
summer at the National Secu- 
rity Division of the Congres- 
sional Budget Office, where 
she co-authored a paper, her 
first publication, "Integrating 
the New Allies Into NATO." 

"We conducted a lot of 
interviews," says Carolyn. "One 
was with the Czech defense 
attache in Washington, D.C. I 
was able to resurrect my lan- 
guage skills and practice my 
Czech in a professional setting." 

Most of the students in the 
professional master's program 
at Columbia are five or ten 
years older than Carolyn and 
have already worked in govern- 
ment agencies. But she has had 
no problem holding her own. 

"Thanks to professors like 
Grimm and Bragaw, I was aca- 
demically prepared. And my 
abroad experience — ^being on 
my own — made it easy to 
adjust to the environment. Tak- 
ing classes with people who 
have worked in government is a 
plus because they draw on first- 
hand experiences in discus- 
sions. It's very helpfiil. I learn 
more through them. 

"This is what I want to do 
with my life, working in the 
international arena, whether it's 
through the government or a 
non-profit organization. And 
through the whole process, I'm 
determined to hold on to the 
values and passions I developed 
at Sweet Briar. I would encour- 
age students to go abroad. I 
know now that, as rich as my 
Czech experience was, I have 
just scratched the surface."

A Tradition of 

INTERNATIONALIZATION 




Emily Pegues VO, a Spanish and art history major, came 
to Sweet Briar in part because of the Junior Year in Spain 
program. (Seep, ii) 

L-r above: Emily Pegues '00; Nora Pines '00 Brown University; Kim Harden '00. 



After World War II, in 
1947, Sweet Briar Col- 
lege helped to revive 
international study opportuni- 
ties for students by assuming 
sponsorship of the University 
of Delaware's respected abroad 
program. The decision was not 
made without objection. At the 
Institute of International Edu- 
cation, an all-male advisory 
committee was concerned that 
the name "Sweet Briar" would 
discourage men from partici- 
pating in the program. They 
had seriously misjudged their 
audience. The name, as things 
turned out, had quite the oppo- 
site effect. 

In August 1948, 67 stu- 
dents-34 women and 33 
men — inaugurated the Col- 
lege's Junior Year in France 
program. Five Sweet Briar stu- 
dents enrolled despite the 
political turmoil and material 
shortages afflicting post-war 
Paris. The largest group, 14 
young men, came from Yale 
University. 

In the years since, the Junior 
Year in France program has 
attracted 5,399 students repre- 
senting 262 colleges and uni- 
versities. The director, EmUe 
Langlois, expects the numbers 
to increase next year when the 
program introduces a single-

German Studies and 
Information Technology: 
'90 Grad Laura Gredys' 
Journey from Munich to ALLTEL 



Laura Gredys '90 almost blew off the 
interview that launched her career. 

In the spring of 1990, a recruiter from EDS, a leader in the 
computer services industry, was on campus interviewing SBC 
students. Laura, a German studies major, was not going to sign 
up. Why bother? But the Career Services staff changed her 
mind. "They urged me to go for the practice," says Laura. "EDS 
is a big company and a job interview is a job interview." 

At the time, Laura could not imagine what a language major 
would have to offer the world of information technology or IT. 
She found out. 

"It turned out that EDS was looking for foreign language 
majors because we have a real affinity for programming," 
explains Laura. "Learning a foreign language or learning a com- 
puter language — both require the 
same mind set. You need to be 
logical, you need to understand 
the vocabulary, and you need to 
be able to use the proper syntax. 
And, once you learn one lan- 
guage, it's easier to pick up 
others." 

Laura's German studies 
major — especially her year abroad 
in Munich — offered an additional 
benefit. "After you study abroad, 
everything seems easier," says 
Laura. "Going through the busi- 
ness and technical training pro- 
grams at EDS was easy in 
comparison because it all took 
place in English. I could understand everything that was going 
on. I didn't have to adapt to a whole new culture. Not that 
Germany wasn't fun — I still miss it." 

After eight years at EDS, Laura joined the telecommunica- 
tions company ALLTEL. She is a software development manager, 
running a team of programmers. Her group handles a large cel- 
lular phone system that performs billing functions and customer 
care. 

Laura's advice to students is to study what they love. "It will 
work out," says Laura. "Follow and learn what you love and 
you'll succeed. You'll have a track record that shows you know 
what it takes to solve problems and master difficult material. 

"IT is a great industry with huge potential. The possibilities 
are endless, even for liberal arts students without computer 
science or language backgrounds. It's hard to believe Career 
Services had to nudge me into it."

students who are in the process of

semester option. The College's 
15-year-old Junior Year in 
Spain program already ofifers a 
full-year or single-semester 
course of study. Under the 
direction of SBC and 
JYF alumna Mary Anne 
WUson '57, the Junior Year in 
Spain program has grown from 
29 to over 100 participating 
colleges and universities. This 
year, for the spring term alone, 
85 students applied and 62 
were accepted. The average 
GPAwas3.4. 

In addition to Sweet Briar's 
own JYF and JYS programs, 
the College has long-standing 
affiliations with programs in 
England, Scotland, Germany, 
Italy, the Czech Republic, 
Japan, and China. The Interna- 
tional Advisory Committee, 
which consists of key adminis- 
trators and faculty on campus, 
continually reviews new pro- 
grams in response to student 
requests for study in an ever- 
expanding range of countries 
like Australia, Ireland, and 
India. 

At the same time, the Inter- 
net is enabling the College to 
reach out to international stu- 
dents who are in the process of 
evaluating educational opportu- 
nities here in the United States. 
During the summer, Dr. 
Margaret Scouten, director of 
international studies and assis- 
tant professor of French, cre- 
ated a website hnked to 



overseas educational advising 
centers. Inquiries generated by 
the site— from places like the 
Republic of Kiribati-have 
prompted Dr. Scouten to reach 
for her world atlas more than 
once this semester. 

"We are getting the word 
out," says Dr. Scouten. "We 
would like to increase our 
numbers of international stu- 
dents. They contribute so much 
to the classroom and to campus 
life. And they directly and indi- 
rectly encourage American stu- 
dents to go abroad and study in 
other cultures. It's not unusual 
for international and American 
students to maintain friend- 
ships and meet again overseas." 

In the ten years since Dr. 
Scouten accepted an adminis- 
trative position in the Office of 
the Dean, her job has evolved 
from a ten-hour-a-week task 
into a full-time directorship. 
With the exception of the JYF 
and JYS programs, the Office 
of International Studies han- 
dles all of the international 
comings and goings on cam- 
pus, including orientation ses- 
sions, re-entry dinners and 
workshops, recruitment panels, 
and abroad program evalua- 
tions.

people are happy to help when 
thev hear the name Sweet

have a reputation for quality. 
Our standards are high. At 
Sweet Briar, internationaliza- 
tion does not equal American- 
ization. We expect our own 
students abroad to immerse 
themselves and adapt to the

Student, Returns to

Volunteer 

Andrea J. Buck '95 likens 
her Sweet Briar experience to 
opening a box of candy. She 
came from Royal Holloway 
College on a one-year 
exchange in 1994 and was 
dazzled by the assortment of 
academic and experiential 
opportunities. 

"Back in the U.K.," says 
Andrea, "nobody ever would 
have said to me: Here's an art 
gallery; go ahead and organize 
an exhibition. But that's exactly 
what the gallery director, 
Rebecca Massie Lane, did. I 
was interested in arts manage- 
ment and she was willing to 
give me — a person with limited 
experience — the chance to try 
something new. 

"I found out who I was, 
what I was capable of, and 
what I enjoyed — like fencing 
with Jennifer Crispen. What a 
fantastic experience! At home, 
the educational system is 



designed to narrow students 
down. To come here and have 
a catalog full of things that you 
can try.. .well, it's a bit like hav- 
ing a sweetie box. You can 
taste them all and chuck away 
what you don't like. I felt like I 
was starting school again. 
That's what endears me to this 
place. I came out feeling like I 
could do anything and every- 
thing."

used to having to support their

participate in maintaining stan- 
dards through endowment 
funds, financial aid, and fac- 
ulty chairs." 

Andrea's SBC experience, 
working with Friends of Art 
and Friends of the Library, gave 



her insight into how to bring 
people together. And, even as 
an exchange student, she was 
impressed by alumnae interac- 
tions with Career Services and 
the Alumnae Office. 

In comparison, though, the 
numbers Andrea deals with are 
staggering: 60,000 alumni 
spread across the United King- 
dom, United States, Greece, 
Germany, Hong Kong, Spain, 
Italy — and some places, she is 
embarrassed to admit, she has 
to look up.

returned to Sweet Briar to talk

Director Joanne Mahanes. She 
also met with students to dis- 
cuss studying abroad in the 
U.K. 

"My main reason for com- 
ing," says Andrea, "was to vol- 
unteer. I'm in the business — I 
ask other people to volunteer 
every day — and I was not vol- 
unteering myself. I'm not sure 
what I can do; we're figuring 
that out. But if Sweet Briar 
needs a London contact, I'm 
here."

Stephanie Bredin Speakman '68, 
New York Times Travel Writer, 
Goes "Aloft Down Under" in 
Sophisticated Traveler 

A couple of years ago, Stephanie Bredin Speakman '68, went 
"brumby running," i.e., chasing and roping wild horses in 
southeastern Australia. It was a wonderful, rollicking adventure 
that she felt needed to be told. She pulled out a yellow pad and 
went to work. Her story, "In Hot Pursuit," appeared in the 
March 1, 1998 issue of The New York Times magazine Sophisti- 
cated Traveler. 

"My husband was very encouraging," says Stephanie. "He 
said Why not start with The New Yorl< Times'^. So I did. I didn't 
send the story anywhere else." 

Last spring, Stephanie hopped aboard a ship (the Leeuwin), 
embarking on what she thought was going to be a leisurely, 12- 
day ecological tour along the south coast of Western Australia. 
The demanding, action-packed voyage turned out to rival 
brumby running. 

"I didn't know that we were going to be the crew," explains 
Stephanie. "It was a training ship, a 180-foot, 16-sail barkentine. 
There were five paid crewmembers and about 50 passengers. 
We had to do it all, including steering. When my turn came, I 
discovered I did not know how to follow a compass course!" 

Stephanie's tale, "Aloft Down Under," made the November 
21, 1999 issue of Sophisticated Traveler. She has also wrapped 
up a documentary covering an 18-day trek through the moun- 
tains of Victoria. 

In recent years, SBC's International Studies Office has 
noticed an increase in inquiries about study abroad opportuni- 
ties in Australia. Two students went for one semester this fall. 
Director Margaret Scouten has met with the dean of admissions 
at Edith Cowan University in Perth to discuss the possibilities for 
an exchange program. 

Stephanie, a history major and current member of SBC's 
Board of Directors, understands what the excitement is about. 
Her own daughter, Tavy Hyland Jones '96, attended Monash 
University in Australia. 

"It doesn't surprise me that students are interested," says 
Stephanie. "Australia is a very safe place. It's easy to travel 
around and make friends. And it still has a frontier. Once you 
leave an urban area, you quickly find yourself in spectacular 
country with beautiful stretches of coastline — no high-rises. It's a 
young person's country. If I were 30 years younger, I'd probably 
emigrate out there." 




informal exchange, and back- 
packed through Europe. 

Choosing SBC enabled 
Reeh to maintain her stride. 
She went to Spain the first 
semester of her sophomore 
year. She is minoring in Italian 
with Professor Rosalia Ascari 
and will attend the University 
of Urbino in Italy this summer. 
Last summer, with the help of 
Michela English 71, Reeh 
interned at the Discovery 
Channel, in Washington, D.C. 
She was originally supposed to 
house-sit for Karn Henderson '97 
and Heather Aspinwall '95. 
When the two ended up stay- 
ing in D.C. for the summer, 
they invited Reeh to room with 
them anyway. 

Reeh's familiarity with 
Washington wUl come in 
handy the first semester of her 
senior yean She is attending 
the Washington Term at 
American University, focusing 
on international business and 
trade. At Sweet Briar, she is 
currently taking international 
affairs courses like "Compara- 
tive Islamic Politics" and 
"International Law." A pro- 
fessed CNN addict, Reeh 
encourages her classmates to go 
abroad and "break out of the 
bubble." 

"Traveling," says Reeh, "puts 
you in situations that you have 
to learn from. It can seem like 
a scary thing — I understand 
that. But Sweet Briar's pro- 
grams address housing hassles, 
safety issues, and orientation. 
You can adjust and immerse 
yourself quickly. My first-year 
roommate is in Paris right now 
and loving it. My roommate 
from last year returned to Spain 
for an additional semester. 
There is no substitute for the 



experience. 

Emily Pegues '00, a Spanish 
and art history major, came to 
Sweet Briar in part because of 
the Junior Year in Spain pro- 
gram. A dedicated field hockey 
player, she opted tor the spring 
semester abroad. For students 
who cannot go for the year, 
spring is preferred because of 
the festivals, fairs, and Holy 
Week celebrations that occur 
during the term. 

"It's difficult to verbalize 
how it changes you," says 
Pegues. "The culture is so 
vibrant. People manage to live 
well without a lot of material 
things. In a bar filled with fam- 
ilies-I'm talking about children 
sitting on the knees of grand- 
parents-they would stop the 
music and dancing at mid- 
night, dim the lights, and sing 
to a statue of the Virgin Mary. 
It's been months and I'm stiU 
looking at my photographs, 
sifting through those kinds of 
impressions." 

Not all of her impressions 
were positive. She remembers 
walking down a street in 
Madrid during the Kosovo cri- 
sis and running into a crowd of 
people who had gathered to 
protest NATO. "I was handed 
a flier with a dead American 
soldier on the cover," says 
Pegues. "At the same time, 
American pop culture was 
embraced. People were wearing 
Levi's and watching Triends' 
and 'Veronica's Closet' on tele- 
vision. The contrast was con- 
fiising at first. My response was 
to respectfully blend in as much 
as possible. I got pretty good at 
it. When I went to Italy, people 
were unable to guess my 
nationality."

ence a "let down" when they 
return from abroad, Pegues had 
no time. Hocke\' practice, her 
job in the art historv slide 
library, and her involvement 
with the volunteer docents 
required her to hit the ground 
running at the start of her 
senior year. 

"I understand now," says 
Pegues. "When one ot the 
Spanish students here, Maria 
Lucas, was talking about how 
much she missed dancing, I 
knew exactly what she was say- 
ing. The houses in Seville are 
small. People live out in the 
streets where they meet, eat 
and drink, and dance to fabu- 
lous guitar playing. And it's not 
just a twenty-something crowd. 
Everi'one is out there. I miss it 
terribly too." 

International 
Students at SBC: 
Olga Abrazumova '02 
and Olive Eiley '01 
Share Their Hopes and 
Experiences. 

International students repre- 
senting 14 different countries 
are on campus this year. They 
come from places as close as 
Canada and as far away as 
Ethiopia, India, and Japan. 

Two students, Olga 
Abrazumova '02 from Russia 
and Olive Eiley '01 from 
Belize, illustrate not only the 
diversity of international stu- 
dents on campus, but their 




similarities. Both Olga and 
Olive are motivated by a desire 
to change things, to help peo- 
ple, to play a part in creating a 
better world. 

For Olga, a government and 
international affairs major with 
a business management certifi- 
cate, the key to world peace is 
economic stability. "The econ- 
omy at Sweet Briar is no prob- 
lem," she says, "because the 
students here are always broke! 
But, in the real world, it's scar)'. 
Countries are breaking up and 
struggling tor their indepen- 
dence, tr)'ing to be stronger 
and wealthier than their neigh- 
bors. It's a mess. People want a 
better life, but there is not 
enough to go around. And that 
causes fighting, government 
corruption, unemployment, and 
emigration. 

"I'm learning Spanish and 
studying economics because I 
want to help with trade. I want 
countries to do business with 
each other and achieve mutual 
prosperity, so they can spend 
money on health care and the 
environment. I don't like war." 

Olga is preoccupied with 
peacekeeping on a global and 
personal level. "It gets frustrat- 
ing," she admits. "Many Amer- 
icans have a picture of Russia 
that is missing some important, 
specific details. It's hard some- 
times to be the only one here, 
trying to explain things about 
my country. Then, when I go 
home, I get ven,' defensive 



"All I knew about the United States 
was what I had seen on television. 
So you can imagine my view: bombs, 
drugs, sex, and corruption. "

about the U.S., trying to 
explain things about this coun- 
try'. 

"Aly friends come from all 
different types of backgrounds. 
But, definitely, students who 
have been abroad are less suspi- 
cious. They're more under- 
standing of litde cultural 
differences, like in food and 
fashion. I've noticed Americans 
use the word 'weird' a lot. If I 
eat soup with sour cream like 
we do in Russia I hear that it's 
'so weird.' Basically, I just put it 
all aside. The only solution is 
more exchanges between peo- 
ple more often. It keeps little 
things from becoming huge." 

Olive Eiley '01, an anthro- 
pology' major and environmen- 
tal studies minor, had no 
intentions of leaving Belize. 
And if she did, it would only 
be to go next door to attend 
medical school in Guatemala. 
"All I knew about the United 
States was what I had seen on 
television," she says. "So you 
can imagine my view: bombs, 
drugs, sex, and corruption." 

In March 1996, a soccer 
coach from Nelson County, 
Virginia went to Olive's home 
island. Ambergris Caye, to 
arrange an exchange between 
high school soccer players. 
Olive, who was the president of 
the student council, helped to 
find host families and organize 
activities for the American stu- 
dents. When the coach asked 
her if she would be interested 



in studying in the U.S., she 
said yes solely out of politeness. 
She never expected to hear 
from him again. 

After graduation at the age 
of 17, Olive knew her chances 
of continuing her education 
were slim-at least in the near 
term. Her parents tried to per- 
suade her that perhaps they 
could send her to Guatemala 
the following year or the year 
after. But Olive, the oldest of 
four children, was doubtfijl. In 
her experience, once people 
started working as store clerks 
or receptionists, that was it. 

"I was so sad. I wanted 
something more. All my plans 
had tumbled down. And what 
happened ne.xt was like a fairy 
tale. I had locked myself in my 
room for three days when I 
received an official letter from 
the coach. It said I had a host 
family, school was set, and all I 
needed was a plane ticket and a 
visa. I had no idea where I was 
going. I came expecting to 
meet a farm family wearing 
overalls. But they were not like 
that at all. They're more like 
guardian angels." 

Growing up on Ambergris 
Caye, Olive walked just about 
everywhere she went. Golf 
carts were the alternate mode 
of transportation. In Virginia, 
after her motion sickness 
passed and she stopped shiver- 
ing, Olive started to enjoy 
school. It wasn't long before the 
coach appeared again, this time

encouraging 
her to begin 
looking at 
colleges. "This 
time, my story is 
the same as everyone 
else's," she says. "I visited Sweet 
Briar, looked around, and fell in 
love with it." 

Belize became a nation in 
1981. Its population of approxi- 
mately 250,000 is a diverse mix 
of ethnic groups including 
Creoles, Mestizos, Garinagu, 
and Europeans. According to 
Olive, young people who leave 
to study abroad rarely return. 
She now understands all ot the 
reasons why. She, however, is 
planning to go back. 

"When I told a friend from 
home that I was majoring in 
anthropology," says Olive, "she 
was disappointed. She said, 'Oh 
boy. I can't believe you are com- 
ing back to Belize to study 
monkevs!' Of course, that's not 
what I have in mind. I want to 
work with the people, probably 
through the government. 
Things are changing around us. 
We need more schools and bet- 
ter education if we're going to 
protect what's ours. 

"The Belize reef is gor- 
geous — one ot the largest and 
most alive in the world. The 
indigenous people, the Mayans, 
are stiU living on reserves. The 
government is selling their 
lands to foreign loggers. It's one 
of the tew virgin rain forests 
lett in the Americas. 

"I feel guilty sometimes 
about being here. But the 
longer I stay-the more I can 
learn — the better chance I have 
of making it up. I don't plan to 
go back and be some big hero; I 
just want to help." 



The French Connection: 
Stephanie Harmon 
Simonard '72, Sophie 
Simonard '97, and 
Benedicte Valentin '00 

Benedicte Valentin '00, an 
international affairs major and 
Spanish minor from Limoges, 
France, planned to attend 
Sweet Briar for one year to 
broaden her education before 
choosing a career path. Now, 
four years later, she has settled 
on law school, preferably a 
dual-degree program that 
would enable her to practice in 
France and the U.S. 

During her first vear, 
Benedicte was gratehjl for the 
trips and events Dr. Scouten 
arranged for international stu- 
dents. She has maintained close 
ties with the group — especially 
the international students in 
her class who helped each other 
through the first few months at 
SBC. 

Today, Benedicte sees herself 
as just another Sweet Briar stu- 
dent. She is glad she chose a 
rural college where she was not 
able to hide within a large, 
urban international community'. 

"Sweet Briar has a good bal- 
ance," says Benedicte. "The 
number of international stu- 
dents is small enough that you 
have to integrate, which is what 
vou're here to do. On the other 
hand, it's comfortable because a 
lot of American students are 
bilingual, or they have dual citi- 
zenship, or they've lived abroad 
for long periods of time. So, the 
student body is more interna- 
tional than it appears at first." 

Benedicte met Mary Anne 
Wilson '57, the director of the 
Junior Year in Spain program, 
during her prospective visit. 
WUson, who majored in French 
and went abroad through 
SBC's Junior Year in France, 
described the JYS program in 
French to Benedicte and her 
parents. Two and a half years 
later, Benedicte enrolled for the 
spring semester in SevLUe. 



"The Spain program is won- 
derful," says Benedicte. "For 
me, even though I was living in 
a cit}', it was less stressfjl. Here, 
I go from classes, to committee 
meetings, to work, to choir 
practice — I'm always busy. 
There, I had time for myself I 
took classes every da\', but I still 
had time to read and travel. I 
was more on my own. Every- 
one should go. The experience 
helps you grow up." 

Now in her senior year, 
Benedicte is busier than ever 
She is chair ot the Academic 
Affairs committee and also on 
the facult\' committees for 
Instruction and General Edu- 
cation. 

"The committee work," says 
Benedicte, "enables me to 
understand how the College 
works. The experience wiU cer- 
tainly help me with law school. 
It's a big self-confidence builder 
and offers good practice at pub- 
lic speaking. It requires me to 
pay attention to how I shape 
and word mv ideas. It also 
teaches me to deal with differ- 
ent people — students, faculr\', 
administrators." 

Benedicte attributes a good 
measure of her success at Sweet 
Briar to Sophie Simonard '97, 
who was a senior during Bene- 
dicte 's freshman year. Sophie 
helped her adjust and encour- 
aged her to get involved in 
campus life. Sophie's mother, 
Stephanie Harmon Simonard 
'72, was pardy responsible for 
Benedicte 's college choice in 
the first place. She had recom- 
mended Sweet Briar to Bene- 
dicte 's parents through a mutual 
friend. 

Stephanie does not recall 
specifically recommending 
Sweet Briar to a friend of 
Benedicte 's parents. It is some- 
thing she has done so often 
over the \'ears in both official 
and informal capacities. 
Though her work as a tax 
attorney limits her spare time, 
she comes through for the Col- 
lege, most recently by helping 



to organize a reception for the 
Alumnae Association's Alum- 
nae College and Friends of Art 
trip to Paris. 

Stephanie lives and works in 
Paris, where she met her hus- 
band as a student in the Junior 
Year in France program in 
1971. She returned to France in 
1972 not to get married, but to 
find a job first — a rather bold 
move back in those days. She 
remained in fiiU career mode 
and became the first woman in 
France to make fiJl partner in a 
law firm, while raising three 
children. Then, several years 
ago, Stephanie left the partner- 
ship to establish her own firm. 

Among her other projects, 
Stephanie and her SBC dorm 
mate HoUy Smith '72 have 
been tn,'ing to internationalize 
the Daughters ot the American 
Re\'olution. HoUy lives in 
London; the two are state 
regents in their respective coun- 
tries and part of the national 
Board of Directors. "We've 
been trving to bring the DAR 
into the 20th cenmr}-," laughs 
Stephanie, "making members 
more conscious of America's 
place in the world." 

With the help of the late 
Pamela Harriman, the former 
American Ambassador to 
France, Stephanie has been able 
to draw attention to a project to 
rebuUd the ship that carried 
LaFayette to America. "Hope- 
ftiUy," says Stephanie, "we'll be 
able to take it on as a major 
DAR project. After all, the 
American Revolution was won 
with the support of French 
troops. We didn't win it all by 
ourselves."

Stephanie's daughter, 
Sophie, an SBC government 
major, completed a master's in 
European Public Policy 
through a program that 
required her to stud}' in Lon- 
don, Paris, and Brussels. She 
interned with the American 
Consulate in Paris and has just 
taken her foreign service 
exam-^though she is currendy 
torn between career possibilities 
in diplomatic service and in 
finance, helping small firms 
find venture capital. 

"I have options," says 
Sophie. "I want to do several 
things, not just one." If her 
Sweet Briar experience is any 
indication, she will have no dif- 
ficultv' pursuing multiple inter- 
ests. In addition to majoring in 
government, Sophie completed 
minors in dance and art history. 
And she did it all in three 
years. 

"I loved the classes and my 
teachers," says Sophie. "Some- 
times, looking back, I vwsh I 
hadn't rushed. That is one thing 
I remember telling Benedicte: 
to take her time and enjoy the 
traditions." 

Getting Together in 
Guatemala: Alice Perry 
Park '65, Mibs Sebring 
Raney '65, and Holly 
Wilmeth '00 

Alice Perry Park '65 is look- 
ing forward to her 35 th 
Reunion. She doesn't often take 
vacations. . .her wholesale meat- 
packing company in Guatemala 
employs 600 people and has 
distributors throughout Central 
America. 

"It's mind boggling," says 
Alice. "We're very busy. I don't 
have much of a social life. But I 
really like what I'm doing, so 
that compensates." 

Alice feels that her educa- 
tion put her in good stead to 
tackle the family business. She 
majored in economics, arrang- 
ing with the Dean's Office to 
spend her junior year in Mexico 




Holly Wilmeth '00; Susan Bobb '00; Benedicte Valentin '00 



at the Technological Institute in 
Monterrey. She also majored in 
Spanish literature to add some 
pleasure to her coursework. 
But, for Alice, the most memo- 
rable part was the community. 

"It was a real privilege to 
attend Sweet Briar," recalls 
Alice. "I developed a great 
sense of community there. I 
had a hard time my first year, 
but people were very under- 
standing and helped me find 
my way. I made excellent 
friends. I have kept in touch 
yvith my roommate, Mibs 
Sebring Raney '65, all these 
years. 

Working together, Alice and 
Mibs helped to point a current 
student from Guatemala, HoUy 
Wilmeth '00, in the direction 
of Sweet Briar. "I was hopefiil 
that HoUy would choose the 
CoUege," says Alice. "I started 
when she was around 12 and 
Mibs gave an extra push later 
on. HoUy was one of those 
kids — just super-capable at an 
early age. We both thought 
Sweet Briar would be a good 
match." 

"There is a group of about 
five alumnae who get together 
in Guatemala City," explains 



HoUy. "I know Alice and Mibs. 
Alice is a friend of my famUy 
and Mibs comes down from 
Texas to visit her. They are my 
greatest support and the reason 
why I'm here. I looked at other 
schools, but I didn't visit Sweet 
Briar. I just accepted, came up 
the drive, and went Wow! 

HoUy attended an Austrian 
school in Guatemala where, at 
the age of four, she began 
learning German in addition to 
Spanish and English. This 
background is aUowing her to 
triple major in international 
affairs, Spanish, and German. 
In international affairs she is 
concentrating in two areas: 
Europe and Latin America. 
She was also able to spUt her 
junior year abroad between 
Vienna and Seville. 

Now in her senior year, 
HoUy is still on the move. She 
tried to intern over the summer 
at the Guatemalan Embassy in 
Cuba, but security concerns 
made it too difficult. In the 
process of researching other 
options, Margaret Stanton, 
associate professor of Spanish, 
told HoUy about a fUm festival 
in Cuba open to students 
through the Center for Cuban 



Studies in New York. 

"It's a two-week festival 
in December that attracts not 
just independent filmmakers, 
but Latin American writers, 
poUticians, journaUsts — the 
Ambassador of Guatemala — 
everyone is going to be there. 
The more I read about it, the 
more I want to go. And that's 
what I love about Sweet Briar. 
It's all here. Anything is possi- 
ble. Mandy Rice '00 and I are 
going for a week as first-time 
scouts. We'U gather informa- 
tion and, perhaps. Professor 
Stanton wUl want to return 
with a whole group next year. 

"I, of course, wiU not be here 
next year. That's why I've been 
out taking pictures of the faU 
foUage and I'm not the only 
one. It's such a calm, beautiful 
setting — something students 
reaUy need to cherish while 
they're here. I'm also taking 
three friends home with me for 
spring break. I'm trj'ing to start 
a tradition of all of us getting 
back together again even 
though we haven't left yet."

CAREER GLOBETROHERS: 

Alumnae Working in the International Arena 



"Today, I do business in Spanish with 
clients in 21 countries. I really have to 
be precise. Fortunately, buying books — 
including specialized dictionaries — 
is my favorite vice. " 

— P^SSy Aurand 



Learning On The Spot: 
Peggy Aurand '64, 
Lawyer with LAP-TV, 
Masters Spanish at 
Every Turn 

It is not enough to say that 
Peggy Aurand '64 is fluent in 
Spanish. Over the course of her 
life, she has mastered so many 
vocabularies. 

"I left Sweet Briar knowing 
how to study, to travel, and to 
discuss academic topics like art 
and literature in Spanish," says 
Peggy. "When I became a wife 
and mother I had to learn how 
to talk to electricians and doc- 
tors. Teaching Spanish, I had to 
be prepared to defend every red 
mark I put on every paper. As a 
lawyer, I assembled a 1,000- 
word database for myself the 
first year alone. Today, I do 
business in Spanish with clients 
in 21 countries. I really have to 
be precise. Fortunately, buying 
books — including specialized 
dictionaries — is my favorite 
vice." 

At Sweet Briar, Peggy spent 
the last semester of her senior 
year in traction. A car accident 
in nearby Lynchburg had 
severely damaged one leg. 
Though she is officially listed 
with the Class of 1964, she did 
not receive her diploma untU 
1965. In between, she did not 



miss a beat. 

Peggy had spent her junior 
year abroad in Spain and was 
determined to return. As soon 
as she was able to get up and 
around on her own, she applied 
and was accepted into New 
York University's master's pro- 
gram in Madrid. 

"I had a hip-to-ankle brace 
with clunky shoes and 
crutches," she recalls. "We didn't 
use knapsacks back in those 
days, so I belted my books 
together and went to class. If I 
had gotten out of the hospital 
two weeks earlier, I would have 
had my master's degree before 
my bachelor's, but I didn't quite 
make it." 

Peggy can honestly say that 
her junior year abroad experi- 
ence changed the direction of 
her lite to this day. She met her 
future husband, an American 
from California, in Madrid. His 
work in Latin America took 
her to Peru along with their 
two sons — a toddler and a 3- 
month-old. Four years later, 
they returned to the U. S. 
where Peggy began teaching 
Spanish in a private school — an 
experience which helped pre- 
pare her for law school. 

"There is nothing hke being 
on the spot to make you learn 
something," says Peggy. "Dur- 
ing aU the years I spent teach- 




Peggy Aurand '64 

ing — grading 120 Spanish 
papers in teenage handwriting a 
night — I learned grammar. I 
really learned what it takes to 
write and I wrote my way up, 
all the way to law review. 

"Teaching is great if you 
have a partner who's helping to 
put food on the table. But, 
when I was newly divorced, I 
couldn't be altruistic. I jumped 
ship." 

At the age of 49, Peggy 
entered the William S. 
Richardson School of Law, 
University of Hawaii at Manoa. 
WhUe the location sounds idyl- 
lic, she likens going to law 
school in Hawaii to "being a 
diabetic working in a bakery." 

"It's demanding," says Peggy, 
"especially when your class- 
mates are the same age as your 
kids. I knew I was in for it the 
first Thanksgiving when a fel- 
low student came up and asked 
me how to cook a turkey." 

In Hawaii, most law firms 
were looking for students with 
Asian language skills. But, 
undeterred, Peggy managed to 
find an internship with one 
that had a branch in Mexico 
City. The contacts she made 
there evenmally brought her 
back to the East Coast, where 
she is now legal counsel for 
Latin American Pay Television 
(LAP-TV) in Adanta. The 



company is a partnership 
among Fox, Paramount, 
MGM, and LIniversal Studios. 

"I remember lunching with a 
Spaniard," recalls Peggy, "who 
told me, in Spanish, 'You know, 
tor an American, you're very' 
intelligent.' Ouch. I'm not bril- 
liant, but the man had a point. 
I was probably the first Ameri- 
can he'd actually been able to 
talk to and be understood in his 
own language. I was probably 
the first American who could 
express myself articulately to 
him in his language. 

"The world shrinks daily, 
but so far, I see few signs that 
English is becoming the uni- 
versal language in all areas." 

Mathematical Physics 
Major and Immigration 
Lawyer, Beryl Bergquist 
Farris '71, Sees Grow- 
ing Need for Work- 
Abroad Experiences 

Beryl Bergquist Farris '71, is 
one of a small number of 
lawyers in the United States 
practicing fiill-time in the field 
of immigration and nationality. 
She has helped royalt}' and 
research scientists, as well as 
those who have arrived here 
hidden in the back of trucks. 

In 1996, Beryl, a mathemat- 
ical physics major, remrned to 
campus to receive Sweet Briar's 
Distinguished Alumna Award 




Beryl Bergquist Farris 71 with 
daughter, Kristin Farris '03.

for outstanding accomplish- 
ments in both her professional 
life and her volunteer activities. 
In 1999, she returned to cam- 
pus again, this time as the 
proud parent of first-vear stu- 
dent Kristin Farris '03. 

As an alumna Ber}'l has 
alwavs been concerned with the 
College's general well-being 
and long-term plans. As a par- 
ent, she is now attuned to more 
immediate chidlenges and 
opportunities. High on her list 
are international internships 
and short-term work abroad 
programs tor students that 
would not require a fuU-term 
commitment. 

As a student herself, Beryl 
had wanted to spend her junior 
year abroad at the Uni\'ersir\' ot 
Stockholm. But her courses in 
mathematical phvsics were in 
the re\'erse order ot what was 
required in Sweden, making the 
whole idea impractical. "The 
tact that it was not teasible 
made it more compelling," 
recalls Ben'l. "I had spent the 
summer alter my treshman year 
touring Western Europe, so I 
had ■alread\' hit the highlights. I 
reall)' wanted to be a Junior 
Year Abroad student, to experi- 
ence the 'people' part of inter- 
national travel." 

After graduation, Beryl 
made up for her missed oppor- 
tunit)'. She married U.S. Naval 
Academy graduate Marc Farris, 
who was stationed in Italy. 
While Marc was out at sea, 
Berv'l was buying bus tickets. 

"I didn't take travel agenc\' 
tours," says Ber\'l. "I took public 
transportation. At one stop on 
an island in Greece, I got off 
and people started gathering 



around me because I was the 
first American they had ever 
seen." 

Unable to get a work permit 
in Italy, Ber\'l auditioned for a 
goodwill show sponsored by the 
admiral of the 6th tleet. Travel- 
ing with the group between 
1972 and 1974, BeM sang her 
wa)' though Turke\', Spain, 
Portugal, France, Germany, and 
Yugoslavia. 

After performing with the 
group in town squares and trav- 
eling on her own from bus stop

"During m\ stav in Italy, 
gasoline was rationed; you 
could onlv bu\' it on certain 
davs. The owner ot a local sta-

When I went back to speak to 
him, he readily admitted he'd

was trying to stretch the supply

He was sincere. And ever}' cus- 
tomer went awav happy —

cHents make comments or sug-

most Americans. But because 
I'm aware of practices and con-

never shocked. I'm able to sym- 
pathize and respond by explain- 
ing how things are done in this

really taught me not to pre- 
judge people who are not aware 
of the U.S. system."

Tools and Strategies: 

Elaine Arozarena '81 Reporting in from the 

Front Lines of Globalization 



"Globalization 
is all about 

money. 
If students 
don t grasp 
that, they're 
in trouble. " 



Elaine Arozarena '81 , a dou- 
ble major in international affairs 
and environmental studies, was 
determined to do something 
international — "to get the world 
communicating" — and Sweet 
Briar was a strategic 
stop along the way. 

A Mexican 
national, Elaine 
speaks Spanish, 
French, Italian, 
Portuguese, and 
English, all of 
which prove 
useful in her 
current position 
Two years ago, 
she became 
a partner of 
Heidrick & 
Struggles, 
ranked as the 
"Best Perform- 
ing Search 
Firm" by the 
International 
Association of 
Corporate and 
Professional 
Recruitment. 

Elaine is a member of Heidrick 
& Struggles' International Tech- 
nology and Transitional Prac- 
tices group. 

"Language is only a tool," 
says Elaine. "There is a differ- 
ence between a tool and a 
strategy. Sweet Briar students 
need an understanding of what 
is happening in the world. 
That's the most important thing. 
From my perspective, the world 
is not arranged by languages, 
it's arranged by markets. In the 
area of emerging markets, 
China, Poland, India, Hungary, 
and Brazil are all on the same 
block! 

"Don't get me wrong, stu- 
dents need skills and tools. But 
every student should try to 
travel out of the U.S. and, in 
turn, more international stu- 
dents should come to Sweet 
Briar. The ideal situation would 
be a work and study abroad 
experience." 

Elaine's own experience 
serves as a good example of 
how both American and inter- 
national students can make the 
most of an SBC international 
affairs major. During her junior 
year in France, she studied at 
the Institute of Political Sci- 




ences in Paris, staying longer to 
complete a thesis project in 
environmental studies. She 
received highest honors for her 
"Comparative Study in Solar 
Energy Domestic Applications 
on Different Conti- 
nents." Her senior 
year, she followed 
up with an intern- 
ship in the Renew- 
able Energy 
Resources Division 
of the World Bank in 
Washington, D.C. 

After graduation, 
Elaine returned 
home to Mexico 
to work in the 
International 
Division of the 
Ministry of Finance. 
There, she discov- 
ered that she was 
not cut out to be a 
bureaucrat. A 
chance interview 
with Dun & 
Bradstreet led to a 
nine-year career 
with the company, 
during which Elaine held sev- 
eral senior management posi- 
tions. 

"I started a new division for 
Dun & Bradstreet in Mexico. 
From there, they started sending 
me to Brazil and, then, France 
and Venezuela. I went to Ire- 
land. I was in Italy. I was all 
over the place." 

In addition to Dun and 
Bradstreet, Elaine has applied 
her international know-how in 
management positions at 
Nielsen International and 
Russell Reynolds — positions 
that, once again, had her globe- 
trotting and exploring new 
business opportunities. 

"It's all about economics. 
Globalization is all about money. 
If students don't grasp that, 
they're in trouble. Corporations 
are going global because it's 
cheaper to make a pair of jeans 
in Guatemala. It's that simple. 
Governments help other govern- 
ments, but — let's be realistic — 
philanthropy, aid programs, and 
other types of support often help 
to secure business interests. It's 
fascinating. And the more Sweet 
Briar can do to prepare students 
for the global economy the 
better."

Beryl's recent experiences 
abroad involve helping "the 
brain drain flow in the direction 
of the U.S." The process has 
opened her eyes to globaliza- 
tion. Manv of her clients are 
software engineers, high-level 
executives, medical doctors and 
researchers, and universit}' pro- 
fessors. "I draw on my math 
and physics background all the 
time," savs Bervl. "I even 
enrolled in an evening Mini- 
Medical School program at the 
Emory Universitv School ot 
Medicine. 1 was representing so 
many physicians and medical 
researchers, I needed to get a 
grasp on what they were doing. 

"My interest in work abroad 
programs for Sweet Briar stu- 
dents relates to what I'm seeing 
every day. Students need to be 
prepared to work and travel 
outside oi the United States. 
They cannot limit themselves 
to the U.S. market anymore. 
I'm hoping to start short-term 
international internships — work 
and travel opportimities over 
breaks or during the summer — 
and use my own daughter as a

Libby Harvey '68, 

Globalization Knocks 
On Alpha Labs' Door: 
Libby Harvey '68, 
President and CEO, 
Joins an International 
Network of Laboratories 

Libby Harvey '68, president 
and CEO of Alpha Chemical 
and Biotechnical Laboratories, 
was not looking to "go global." 
Her business had just com- 
pleted another successflil 
growth spurt, doubling in size 
between 1996 and 1997. 
Alpha's expertise and capabili- 
ties were attracting a wide 
range of clients and, unbe- 
knownst to Libby, piquing the 
interest ot an international net- 
work of laboratories called 
Eurofms Scientific, Inc. 

"Eurofins told us that every- 
where they went, our name 
came up," savs Libby. "When 
they first approached us, I had 
no intention of joining with 
another group. But, as we 
talked, I realized that thev were 
scientifically top-notch in food 
and beverage analysis, and we 
shared the same philosophy." 

Libby, a chemistry major 
and math and art histor\' 
minor, spent the summer after 
her junior year on an art history 
tour of Europe. After gradua- 
tion, she worked for the 
American Chemical Society in 
Washington, D.C., where she 



"Communicating 
with people 
directly on a one- 
on-one basis is 
critical to the suc- 
cess of companies 
everywhere. I 
would urge stu- 
dents to develop 
those skills along 
with their techni- 
cal skills. " 

enrolled in a sculpture course at 
the Cochran Art Galler\'. She 
also took courses in business 
development and accounting. 

"I worked tor a CPA before 
I co-tounded Alpha Labs," savs 
Libby. "It was critical to the 
success ot the business. My 
math minor at Sweet Briar and 
the additional courses I took 
made it easv. My job at the 
American Chemical Society — 
working on the educational, 
marketing and sales, and public 
relations side of science — 
helped a lot too. My interest in 
art is personal, though as a stu- 
dent I thought about applying 
mv chemistry background 
toward a career in art restora- 
tion." 

Libby co-founded Alpha 
Labs in Petaluma, California in 
1982. Like many labs in the 
Bay Area, Alpha started out 
doing environmental testing. 
But Libby soon pulled away 
trom the pack, expanding 
Alpha's services to meet both 
the stringent requirements ot 
the pharmaceutical industry' 
and the emerging needs ot the 
nutritional supplement Indus- 
try. 

By 1994, advertisements and 
word-ot-mouth reterrals were 
bringing in clients trom across 
the United States, Europe, 
Japan, and China. The same 



year, Libby made a trip to the 
Amazonian rain forest that 
changed everything. 

"The boom in dietary sup- 
plements has been an exciting 
part of the ride," says Libby. 
"My trip to the rain forest was 
a turning point because it 
brought together people in the 
industry' who were focusing on 
increased qualit\' control. Phar- 
macists, chemists, doctors, pro- 
fessors, and a key representative 
from the USDA were all there 
for a two-week workshop on 
medicinal herbs and medicines. 

"In the old days, the herbal 
medicines industry rehed on 
taste, odor, and visual indica- 
tions to gauge quality. Alpha 
Labs was a key player in stan- 
dardization, helping to develop 
scientific methods to verity 
label claims. Our work with 
pharmaceuticals gave us a great 
advantage. We were taking 
good manufacturing practices — 
the explicit quality controls 
required by the pharmaceutical 
industry — and applying them 
to dietary supplements. 

"The rain forest workshop — 
meeting with a diverse group of 
torward-looking protessionals 
— inspired me to change the 
direction of the lab to focus 
•almost entirely on natural prod- 
ucts." 

Alpha Labs' expertise and 
technology' in pharmaceuticals 
and nutraceuticals (standard- 
ized nutritional supplements 
and botanicals) was exacdy 
what the French-based 
Eurofins Scientitic wanted to 
add to its mix ot services. The 
agreement between the two 
companies was tormalized in 
June 1999. Though acquired by 
Eurofins, Alpha continues to 
operate as an independent divi-

SBC CAMPUS 

An International Crossroad 



sion with Libb}' at the helm. 

"Alpha was growing by leaps 
and bounds," savs Libbv. "But 
this aUiance bumped us up 
overnight to a whole other 
plateau. We now have access to 
Eurofms' expertise and technol- 
ogy. We can trade scientists 
back and forth. One of the 
world's leading authorities on 
genetically modified organisms 
(GMOs) is with Eurofms. One 
ot their labs is set up to do 
DNA testing for GMOs. The 
thought that we may be bring- 
ing those capabilities here is 
terribly exciting." 

Libbv advises science stu- 
dents at Sweet Briar to get a 
broad education, to take RiU 
advantage of hands-on experi- 
ences with equipment, and to 
walk out of the lab and look 
away from their computer 
screens every once in a while. 

"No matter how compli- 
cated the world gets, it still 
comes down to people working 
■with people. I see it every time 
I travel and everv dav I do busi- 
ness. Alpha Labs provides data, 
but we also walk clients 
through the process and the 
results. Communicating with 
people directly on a one-on-one 
basis is critical to the success of 
companies everywhere. I would 
urge students to develop those 
skills along with their technical 
skills." 



The Professor and the 
Poet: Herr Horwege 
Translates a Book By 
VCCA Artist Ralph 
Griineberger 

Ronald E. Horwege, profes- 
sor ol German, is constantly 
working to enhance the Ger- 
man studies program at Sweet 
Briar. 

The Virginia Governor's 
German Academy, which uses 
SBC smdents as counselors, 
returned to campus tor the 
third vear this summer. In 
October, the College hosted the 
fourth annual Sweet Briar 
CoUege-Goethe House Immer- 
sion Weekend for Virginia col- 
lege and high school teachers. 
The 29-year-old SBC Summer 
in Miinster, a cooperative pro- 
gram with Vassar College and 
the College of William and 
Marv', is one of dozens of Ger- 
man study abroad options. The 
department maintains strong 
aftiliations with programs in 
Heidelberg, Leipzig, Munich, 
BerHn, and Bonn to name just 
a tew. 

In 1997, when the Virginia 
Center tor the Creative Arts 
(VCCA) called to inform Pro- 
fessor Horwege about their vis- 
iting East German poet, he 
responded immediately. Ralph 
Griineberger accepted Professor 
Horwege's invitation to dine 
with students, attend classes, 
and read during an SBC- 
Goethe House Immersion 
Weekend. It was the beginning 
of an academic relationship that 
transformed literaUv overnight 
(and over a few bottles of Vir- 
ginia wine) into an artistic col- 
laboration. 

"Ralph gave a reading on 




Ralph Griineberger with Katie Kruschwitz '01 

"Ordinarily, we dorit cover the 'fall of 
the wair until second semester. Buty 
talking and showing films about the 
former German Democratic Republic is 
not the same as conversing directly with 
someone who was there. Tve never had 
so many questions come out in class. " 

— Ronald E. Horwege 



Saturday night during the 
Immersion Weekend that 
ended in a long talk. We 
poured the wine and all of us 
sat around talking untU the 
earlv morning hours about the 
situation in Germany. Before he 
went back, Ralph and I went 
out to lunch and he asked me 
to translate his poetry. It was a 
first for me. But he had already 
made up his mind and was so 
enthusiastic, I couldn't say no." 
Dozens of phone calls, faxes, 
and a trip to Leipzig later, the 
biUngual volume ot poetr)'. The 
Mystery Is: You Are and You Are 
Not /American Poems, appeared 
on the shelves of the Sweet 
Briar Book Shop last October. 
The timing was perfect. Classes 
were in fiiU swing, teachers 



were arriving for another 
Immersion Weekend, and 
Ralph Griineberger was back 
on campus — this time through 
the Sweet Briar Fellows-in- 
Residence Program. 

The poet and protessor gave 
several readings and led a 
poetry workshop. Professor 
Horwege also arranged tor 
Griineberger to visit his 
"German Culture" class. 

"Ordinarily," says Professor 
Horwege, "we don't cover the 
'fall of the wall' until second 
semester. But, talking and 
showing tllms about the former 
German Democratic Republic 
is not the same as conversing 
directly with someone who was 
there. I've never had so many 
questions come out in class.

International Writers Linger On Campus to Meet and Dine with Students 



The Sweet Briar Seminars 1999-2000: 
International Writers series is proceeding as 
planned. Instead of reading and running, 

these writers and translators are going into 

cla§5??nR^hapel, faculty homes, and the dining hall, talking 
directly with students about the issues that animate their work . 

In September, Homereo Aridjis, one of Mexico's foremost 
poets, novelists, and environmentalists met with science and 
creative writing students. The following month. South African 




writer, Sindiwe Magona met with 6 classes, including an honors 
course on "The Immigration Experience." In November, poets 
and translators Marilyn Hacker and Claire Malroux met with 
women and gender studies students. When he arrives in Febru- 
ary, Chinese writer Ha Jin, winner of the PEN/Hemingway and 
Flannery O'Conner awards, will meet with Professor Richard's 
"20th-century World" history classes. 

John Gregory Brown, associate professor of English and cre- 
ative writing, queried other faculty in the process of choosing 
nine international writers for the series. And he is pleased to see 
international students, student groups like Unity, and arts man- 
agement students getting involved in supporting and planning 
each event. 

"Programs like this," says Professor Brown, "go a long way 
toward fulfilling Sweet Briar's mission to offer a global educa- 
tion. Obviously, it doesn't happen without a lot of funding and 
support. But it's the kind of thing I'd love to be able to continue 
to do. Many of our alumnae have backgrounds and experiences 
that could contribute to an effort like this." 

Nobel prize-winning poet and playwright Derek Walcott 
kicked off the series on September 16. Still to come are 
Lebanese writer and journalist Hanan al-Shaykh; Somalian 
author Nuruddin Farah; and Sandra Benitez, who grew up in 
Mexico, El Salvador, and Missouri.

"Imagine Avhat would hap- 
pen if I could bring Goedie 
back to life to talk about the 
18th century. Well, here I am 
bringing back someone who 
was in the demonstrations and 
dealing with authorities in the 
GDR — an artist who was living 
it. His poems about that time 
are ver}' powerful and provoke a 
very powerflil discussion." 

Each academic vear, the 
SBC Fellows Program provides 
VCCA residencies for artists 
who, in turn, contribute to the 
College's academic program. 
Ralph Gruneberger returned to 
campus as a Fellow this year. 

Many tvpes ot interactions 
take place between the VCCA 
and SBC communities. Ich 
Zitella from Venezuela and 
Hector Silverra from Cuba, in 
residence at different times last 
spring, shared their music with 
the Spanish Club. Polish Fel- 
low, Kzszlofa Zwierz-Giok, 
spoke to Rebecca Massie Lane's 
arts management class during 
her stav. Nils Dicaz, a German 
FeUow, recently mounted an 
exhibition of his drawings and 
sculpmre which was open to 
the SBC community. 

Professor Horwege's experi- 
ence helps to highlight the fact 
that formal and informal 
exchanges with international 
VCCA artists benefit professors 
as well as students. "Sometimes 
you meet people and it clicks," 
says Professor Horwege. "I'd 
done translations before, but 
poetry is another kettle of fish. 
I'm not sure exacdy what the 
next project will be. Ralph is 
always writing and already has 
a few in mind." 



The Spanish/Business 
Major: Alicia King '97 
with BellSouth 
International Used 
Her Language Skills 
fc Leverage 

Sweet Briar's new 
Spanish/business major pre- 
pares graduates to launch 
careers of individual interest in 
a variety of fields with a com- 
mon focus — Hispanic culture. 
Majors acquire relevant tools, 
knowledge, and experience 
through the study of Hispanic 
language, cultures, and eco- 
nomic processes. 

Alicia King '97, a double 
major in international affairs 
and modern languages (Span- 
ish, French, and German), 
graduated a year before the 
Spanish/business major became 
available. But her experience in 
today's job market helps to 
illustrate the benefits the Span- 
ish/business major offers. It also 
hints at ways alumnae may be 
able to participate by offering 
advice, internships, and abroad 
experiences. 

Alicia is an administrative 
assistant in the Information 
Technolog)' Department at 
BellSouth International (BSI) 
in Atlanta. BSI has many affdi- 
ates in Latin America; she uses 
her Spanish studies in day-to- 
day communications, as well as 
in translating work. 

When she was stiU fresh on 
the scene, Alicia was able to 
contact and have lunch with 
Shann Fountain '96. Shann 
told Alicia about the translation 




Alicia King '97 



certification programs at Geor- 
gia State University. Alicia fol- 
lowed up and is currently 
enrolled for graduate certifica- 
tion in Spanish translation. 

"My experience," sa\'s Alicia, 
"having entered the workforce 
only two years ago is that, as a 
recent college grad with little 
work experience, my Spanish 
skills gave me leverage in find- 
ing a good job. Students should 
look specifically for jobs that 
request bilingual or language 
skills in the listing. Right from 
the start, I discovered that 
speaking another language 
increased my hourly pay sub- 
stantially! Also, going through 
placement agencies was 
extremely helpfiil." 

Since she moved to Atlanta 
in the summer of 1997, Alicia 
has worked at seven different 
companies, including an immi- 
gration law firm and the 
Weather Channel. All but two 
were assignments she had 
received through a search firm. 

"Especially for entry-level 
and administrative positions," 
explains Alicia, "companies are 
using search firms routinely to 
provide temporary employees 
who might turn out to be suit- 
able candidates for fiiU-time 
positions. 

"Temping allowed me to 'try 
out' different industries, cul- 
tures, and companies without 
committing to something that 
would make me unhappy, whUe 
still making a steady Income. 
The worst part when you're just 
starting out is having to wait 
weeks without health insurance 
or sick time." 

Now, from her happy and 
secure perch at BellSouth, Alicia 
sees that "a common business 
culture and language usually pre- 
vails — American." But that does 
not mean there is no need for 
language/business majors. 
Maybe just the opposite. 

"More and more American 
companies are trying to be 
culturally sensitive, hiring 
employees who can communi- 



"More and

cate in their clients' and affili- 
ates' own languages," says Ali- 
cia. "Also, because of the 
intense level of travel that's 
required in today's business 
world, both travelers and their 
support teams back home are 
better off if they can speak the 
language. Even for something 
as simple as ordering a pickup 
at the airport or settling an 
incorrect bUl, it is almost essen- 
tial to have a bilingual 
employee who understands the 
business, the language, and the 
culture. 

"I've been an avid supporter 
of the Spanish/business major 
since I heard about it after I 
graduated. I think it wUl help 
to prepare students for the cur- 
rent workplace and make 'cor- 
porate America' less daunting. 
The Spanish portion of the 
major will enable graduates to 
be more competitive, both in 
entry-level job openings and in 
graduate study. 

"Really, any Sweet Briar stu- 
dent interested in mixing her 
modern language skills with 
economics or international 
affairs in the business world 
must be sure to highhght those 
skills on her resume. And, for 
that extra edge, she should look 
into interning or volunteering 
in areas that will give her 
multilingual experience."

The Kazakhstan 
Alumna Connection: 
Abby Carter 
Rudenshiold '88 
opens opportunities 
for faculty and 
student research. 

In 1993, anthropology major 
Abby Carter Rudenshiold '88 
and her husband, Eric, moved 
to the city of Almaty in 
Kazakhstan, the former Kazakh 
Soviet Socialist Republic. They 
were directing a democracy 
training program fiinded by the 
U.S. Agency for International 
Development (USAID). The 
program focused on developing 
relationships with non- 
governmental organizations, 
new political entities, and exist- 
ing pohtical parties, teaching 
them about multi-party democ- 
racy and all that it entails, from 
campaigning to free elections. 

At Sweet Briar, Abby had 
traveled across Virginia and to 
the Bahamas, participating in 
archaeological field studies with 
Professor Claudia Chang. 
When she arrived in

Issyk kurgan in 1969 where Golden Warrior, the 5th-4th-century B.C. Scythian 
youth, was found.) Visit to Bekin's Issyk Museum, 1993. 



Kazakhstan, she sought out the 
archaeologists based in Almaty. 

"As with everything else in 
that part of the world," writes 
Abby, "after the breakup of the 
Soviet Union, most of the aca- 
demic institutions were desper- 
ate for both funding and 
contacts with the West. At the 
same time, I knew that Profes- 
sor Chang was having trouble 
working in Yugoslavia with war 
imminent. Her specialty is pas- 
toral societies and I thought 
Kazakhstan would be a natural 
extension for her interests and 
work. 

"Given that almost no 
Western archaeologists had 
paid any attention to

Kazakhstan during the Soviet 
era, I made contacts with vari- 
ous archaeological institutes 
and universities. We then 
secured an invitation for Pro- 
fessor Chang and her husband 
to come. They stayed with us 
for several weeks and we were 
able to provide them with cars, 
drivers, and interpreters to meet 
with various archaeologists in 
the region." 

Abby and Eric have since 
moved to Copenhagen where 
Abby manages the U.S. 
Embassv commissary and trains 
Grand Prbc jumpers for the 
Danish National Equestrian 
Team. Professor Chang has 
since completed six field 
seasons in southeast 
Kazakhstan. She is co-directing 
an Iron Age excavation in the 
area of Talgar with Dn Karl M. 
Baipaikov, director of the 
Archaeological Institute at the 
Kazakh National Academy of 
Sciences. 

Professor Chang's project is 
an international collaborative 
effort. Trained as both an 
archaeologist and cultural 
anthropologist, she is deter- 
mined to find common ground 
between Kazakh and Western 
specialists. AH communications, 
from research presentations to

thing.

Russian. Specialists from both 
sides are paired. Even students 
are placed with Kazakhstani 
digging partners. 

"We are not digging in a 
thoroughly Western sr)'le," 
explains Professor Chang. 
"There is give and take on all 
kinds of issues. For Sweet Briar 
students, it is not a typical field 
school experience. And it takes 
a kind of stamina that can't be 
measured strictly in terms of 
intellectual grovrth." 

Amber Blow '98 has been to 
the dig site twice, first as a stu-

Amber replies: "I think what 
she means is that if you're sim-

We're in a Third World coun-

physically demanding. For me.

that has been a very positive 
thing. But it your cultural expe- 
rience has been limited — if you 
aren't able to make an intuitive 
leap — then you won't be able to 
withstand the rigors of the pro- 
ject, nor will you be able to reap 
all of the rewards." 

Meredith Taylor '01, a psy- 
chology major and anthropology 
minor trom Maine, was sur- 



prised at how well she was able 
to adjust. Within a few weeks, 
she and Becky Cefaratti '02 had 
picked up enough Russian to 
navigate both work on the site 
and shopping trips to local 
bazaars on their own. The stu- 
dents lived in a cramped former 
collective, digging from 8 
o'clock in the morning until 1 or 
2 p.m., then returning after 



lunch to wash bones or label 
ceramics. The routine was bro- 
ken with trips to the city of 
Almaty and other archaeologi- 
cal sites. Meredith also traveled 
to Kyrgystan to visit a friend, 
an exchange student from her 
high school days. 

Meredith's research focused 
on the faunal remains (bones) 
at a site called Tsiganka 8. She 



'What I learned 
about the archae- 
ology was phe- 
nomenal. But 
what I learned 
about the culture 
was even more 
important. "

assisted Norbert Bennecke, a 
zooarchaeologist trom the 
German Archaeological 
Institute, Eurasian Division. In 
addition to reading and writing 
a proposal in advance, she pre- 
pared tor the assignment by 
watching her Kazakh neighbors 
butcher a sheep. "In the pic- 
tures, you can see how horrified 
I looked," says Meredith. "But 
it was helpful. I needed to see 
for myself how animals are 
slaughtered to understand how 
bones might be scattered at a 
site or to identify and compare 
butchering marks." 

Meredith helped to record 
data which she condensed into 
a 20-page paper and presented 
at the Mid- Atlantic Regional 
Conference for Undergraduate 
Scholarship. "I needed to con- 
sult with Professor Chang to 
clarify a few points," she recalls. 
"Otherwise, I was shocked at 
how quickly the paper came 
together. I had absorbed more 
information — intricate 
details — than I ever thought 
possible. I never expected to get 
so much out of my apprentice- 
ship with Dr. Bennecke. 

"What I learned about the 
archaeology was phenomenal. 
But what I learned about the 
culture was even more impor- 
tant. We are more alike than we 
think we are. Once you get past 
the politics, you find out that 
people are just people. We all 
get caught up in our small little 
circles when, really, life is big- 
ger — much bigger."

In the Spotlight 



My Exhilarating 28- 
Year Adventure 

By Annabelk Forsch Prager '43 

In 1971 1, an artist and writer 
of children's books, found myself 
embarked on a project I was 
totally unequipped to take on. To 
put it more blundy, I didn't have 
the slightest idea of what I was 
doing! 

I started an orchestra for the 
schoolchildren ot the dxv oi New 
York. 

Nevertheless, today, 28 years 
later, that litde orchestra has 
grown into The InterSchool Orches- 
tras of New York, a program that is 
a principal musical resource for 
youth in the city's greater metro- 
politan area. ISO now offers one 
of the finest youth s}'mphonies in 
the area which is a 100% scholar- 
ship ensemble; a sym- 
phonic band, also 
all-scholarship; a 
junior s\Tnphony; 
three orchestras for 
younger, less experi- 
enced pla}'ers; a per- 
cussion workshop for 
beginners; and cham- 
ber music for children 
of all ages and abili- 
ties. The 30 or more 
musical events these 
young ensembles present each 
year are exceptional; their perfor- 
mance venues would be the trwx 
of any professional group. Most 
exhilarating of all, I believe we 
mav have transformed the lives of 
thousands ot children through 
music. 

Why did this all take place? 

The answer lies in uncovering 
an important need, stepping for- 
ward, and learning, in mv case, 
learning on the job, how to fiU it. 
It also lies in caring about what 
you are doing, and finding others 
who care too — care so much that

Times December 24, 1992. Inset: Annabelle Prager 



the whole experience becomes 
all-consuming, exhilarating, and 
enormoush' rewarding. For me 
and those like me, that's not dif- 
ficult when it comes to music. 
Music and music-making 
have provided me with some of 



the most jo\'ous moments of m\' 
life. I always assumed that my 
children, in fact all children, 
would have the opportunity to 
share in this great pleasure. So in 
the early '70s when I asked a 
well-known clarinet teacher to 



give lessons to m\ ten-year-old 
son, and he said that he was 
inclined to say "No," I was as 
shocked as I was affronted. 

"What do YOU mean 'No'?" I 
demanded. 

"Children are more apt to tall

in love with their instrument and 
with music as well it the\' can 
play with others in an ensemble," 
he explained. "Your son doesn't 
go to one of the tew schools in 
the city that ofifers an orchestra. 
There is simply no place tor him 
to play." 

I marched right over to my 
son's school and demanded, 
"Where's the orchestra?" 

"Whv don't vou start one?" 
came the answer. 

Undeterred by staggering 
ignorance, I plunged ahead. I 
was also unaware that the clar- 
inet teacher's observation about 
the dearth of musical opportuni- 
ties in New York CiU' schools 
was just the tip ot the iceberg — a 
nationwide problem. 

In the 1960s when the arts 
flourished in the schools, 70% of 
junior high schools offered bands 
and orchestras. Bv the '80s that 
number had dropped to 17%. In 
New York City, the so-called cul- 
tural center of our countn', bud- 
get cuts and other priorities were 
causing music teachers to lose 
their jobs in droves. Music pro- 
grams were dismanded. A Board 
of Education task force at the 
time cast doubt on the city's abil- 
ity to produce performers or 
audiences for the future. 

So I formed a small commit- 
tee, gathering together anyone — 
parents, teachers, musicians — I 
could think of who shared my 
belief that first-rate music 
belonged in children's lives. I was 
fortunate to fmd three school 
heads who supplied necessary 
clout, as well as an experienced 
conductor who was leading one 
of the few school orchestras in 
the city. In June 1972 a tremu- 
lous little orchestra made up of 
children between tourth and 
twelfth grades from 20 schools 
held its first concert at The 
Chapin School. ISO has had 
many triumphs since that day — 



standing ovations at Lincoln 
Center and Carnegie Hall, 
rehearsals under great maestri 
such as Kurt Masur — but noth- 
ing will ever match the euphoria 
of that event. We were so thrilled 
to be making music. 

Our committee was ad\ised 
to form a not-for-profit corpora- 
tion so that we would be able to 
solicit gifts to support our 
etforts, efforts which kept 
expanding with the dawn of each 
new season. (Mastery of the fine 
art of fiind-raising still lay 
ahead.) We hit on the idea of 
making ourselves into a member- 
ship organization made up 
mosriv of private schools who 
would support us in return tor 
services they could not supply tor 
themselves. Since it had become 
our mission to create new inter- 
est and activity in music among 
schoolchildren, we brought our 
orchestra into the schools, pre- 
senting assemblies, concerts and 
instrument demonstrations (chil- 
dren performing tor children). 
We arranged scholarship lessons, 
advice on faculty — even started 
new instrumental programs. 
Every time we found an impor- 
tant musical need, we tried to fill 
it. Pretty soon we realized that 
we should offer our services to 
the public schools free of charge, 
and we found ourselves running 
a unique and productive musical 
outreach program for the New 
York Cit)' community. 

Our little orchestra was an 
immediate success. Our numbers 
swelled, our musical standards 
rose, and we created another 
ensemble, and another and 
another, in order to involve as 
many children of varying ages, 
abilities, and backgrounds as 
possible. By the 1980s, member- 
ship in our top orchestra, the 
ISO Svmphonv, had become an 
honor and a privilege both for 
the most talented young musi- 



cians in the metropolitan area 
and for players rising up through 
our own ranks. 

How to make a fine program 
into one that is both musically 
and educationally exceptional — 
this has called on ever)' ounce of 
creativity flowing through my 
veins. We prevail on outstanding 
professional artists to appear pro 
bono with our children — every- 
one from Isaac Stern (who, by 
the way, is married to Linda 
Reynolds '66) and Peter Schickele 
to James Earl Jones and George 
Plimpton. Members of the New 
York Philharmonic coach sec- 
tional rehearsals and judge con- 
certo competitions each season. 
We have mounted festivals of 
German, French, and Italian 
music, sponsored by the con- 
sulates of those countries — for 
the French festival, world- 
famous cellist Paul Tortelier 
waived his SI 1,000 fee and flew 
to New York from Nice to per- 
form with the ISO S\'mphony at 
Alice Tully Hall. We have played 
at hundreds of schools, at settie- 
ment houses, hospitals, botanical 
gardens, even been invited to 
participate in an international 
music festival in Venezuela, all 
expenses paid. An astonishing 
mix of young people are con- 
standy learning, constantly 
thrilled and inspired. 

Music is a God-given gift, 
but it takes exposure, nurturing, 
and discipline. Piano lessons at 
an early age put music in my ear, 
but my real love affair blossomed 
while I was on the Sweet Briar 
campus in the '40s. Lucille 
Umbreit's histor)' of music course 
was a revelation. What delight 
we experienced during those 
spellbound hours in the listening 
room, becoming familiar with 
the glories of western music so 
we could identifi' pieces on the 
spot quizzes she was always 
springing. 



And that discerning perfec- 
tionist, Alfred Finch, Sweet 
Briar's dynamic choir and choral 
director — he introduced us to 
Renaissance and Baroque music, 
rarely performed at the time — 
Monteverdi, Palestrina, 
Pergolesi, and 20th-century music 
too, Debussy's Blessed Demoiselle 
with the Harvard Symphony 
Orchestra. I can still sing every 
note. I can also remember being 
carried away singing Mozart's Ave 
Verum at a choir rehearsal, and 
deciding that participation in the 
arts is the road to a glorious life of 
fiJlillment. The children who 
have played with ISO over the 
years are sure to agree, whether 
they are now making names for 
themselves as professional musi- 
cians, or are enthusiastic amateurs 
like me. 

It is my observation that 
small, single-sex colleges like 
Sweet Briar turn out bright, 
adventurous, alert young women 
bursting with self-assurance, the 
kind of confidence not always 
found among those who gradu- 
ate from large, prestigious coed 
institutions. During my four 
stimulating years on campus, I 
began to assume leadership roles, 
gathering the courage to rely on 
my own resources to make my 
own decisions, some of them 
more successflil than others. But 
being willing to fail takes 
courage too. Such temerity was 
beyond my reach at the school I 
had previously attended, where 
shy people like me were eclipsed 
by brilliant, aggressive boys. 

So in conclusion I offer these 
brief terse words because they 
rarely fail to bring a smile. When 
something needs to be done, 
don't write a letter, do it yourself! 

That's what I did in 1971. It 
has been exhilarating. Sweet 
Briar deserves a lot of the credit.

A Different Dance 
Tanqueray's American AIDS 
Rides 

By Sally McCrady Hubbard '65 

The front and back covers of 
"Fine Arts at Sweet Briar," the 
Spring 1999 issue ot the Alum- 
nae Magazine, are bright with 
skirts-flaring, toes-reaching, 
smooth-hair-tied-back, strong- 
arms-stretched-high, confident, 
airborne Sweet Briar dancers 
moving purposeflilly cross- 
stage. I remember feeling just 
the same way, running, leaping 
from corner to opposite corner 
of the sunlit gym in the solar 
winds of Mrs Moelilenkamp — 
whose black leotard stretched to 
accommodate the latter months 
of pregnancy. She delivered over 
Christmas break mv freshman 
year, and returned with her 
infant daughter on schedule for 
January classes. 

For three decades a photo- 
graph of me, front and center, 
poised to begin the Maypole 
dance deep in the dell, hung in 
my mother's sewing room. I 
remember how my body felt 
that day too — back and neck 
straight, chest lifted off waist, 
nerves and muscles tuned to the 
music, exquisitely ready to 
begin. I knew precisely how to 
move in that curious combining 
of unity and solitude. 

But there was also the day in 
Richmond when the Dance 
Club competed with other col- 
lege groups, and I found myself 
unable to discern what was the 
front or back of the stage in the 
empty, dark auditorium. I 
looked to the other dancers to 
orient me, to move in response 
to them, to fmd north — and 
felt despair as they glanced at 
me with frowns and then looks 
of alarm and anger. I tried to 
keep up appearances until the 
piece was mercifully over. 

Friends of mine went on to 
dance in major cities, but my 
choice was early marriage and 




Sally Hubbard and daughter, Anna Heath 

transfer to Tulane University I 
conceived a daughter at 23 and 
a son at 24 and remembered 
Mrs. Moehlenkamp. I felt like a 
dancer in pregnancy — I exer- 
cised, stretched, hiked to neigh- 
boring towns. I thrilled to my 
babies' motions within my 
body; I gave birth joyfiiUy. 

Hard years came. Vivaldi 
turned to Stravinsky, turned to 
silence. My purposes seemed 
unreachable, and, besides, inval- 
idated. 

The day my daughter Anna 
told me she was HIV+, I stood 
at her kitchen sink for more 
than an hour, pouring water 
over her dying Bonsai tree with 
one hand, and gripping the sink 
with the other, afraid to let go 
because my knees would fail. 
For months I could not tell 
front from back. Color and 
hght dulled. The dancer who 
had long made her presence 
known within me was stUl. 

Gradually I learned that my 
daughter had a step and a for- 
ward motion of her own. When 
she decided in 1996 to join 
2,500 bicycle riders on a week- 
long trip from San Francisco to 
Los Angeles benefiting HIV 
agencies in those cities, she 
invited me into her dance. She 
asked me to be a fund-raiser, 
and then told me about oppor- 
tunities to crew. We wrote our 
sponsor letters and debated 



which friends and relatives we 
could safely send them to. In 
the end she decided to send 
them to anyone who might 
care, and the responses and 
checks that began arriving 
brought pulse and motion back 
to my cells. The ride required 
$2,500 from each rider; Anna's 
sponsors sent in $15,300. That 
June, by night we slept in an 
orderly field of 1,400 matching 
tents; by day we played our sep- 
arate roles in the wildly colorflil 
movement of a community of 
3,000 people down the coast of 
California. 

This summer we partici- 
pated in our 5th through 9th 
rides. AIDS treatments which 
seemed so promising in 1996 
extended and enhanced hves of 
people like Anna with AIDS, 
but they are failing: the virus is 
recouping its losses, changing 
strategies, catching up. Anna is 
on her last known treatment 
protocol and contends daily 
with nausea, headache, and 
depression. Because the public 
has lost interest and young peo- 
ple are risking infection, Anna 
decided to dance on a larger 
stage: between June and Octo- 
ber she committed to ride from 
San Francisco to Los Angeles, 
Raleigh to Washington D.C., 
Twin Cities to Chicago, Boston 
to New York, and Houston to 
Dallas, in a sequential company 



of 10,800 solitary riders. They 
not only raised $24 million but 
also alerted their friends and 
relatives about the continuing 
spread of the virus. Approxi- 
mately 57% of every donor dol- 
lar will go to AIDS services 
(24% to awareness and admin- 
istrative expenses, 19% to rider 
safety and support). They 
formed a 2,055-mile-long 
reminder, at the western, east- 
ern, northern, and southern 
extremes of our country, that 
HIV is present and thriving in 
every community and popula- 
tion. 

We expanded our sponsor 
list to participate in all of these 
rides, and Sweet Briar class- 
mates joined us generously, 
sending their own stories of 
challenge and survival as well as 
checks. Long-neglected friend- 
ships are rediscovered. As for 
me, I dished out a lot of oat- 
meal and pasta. Serving meals 
has become my role: in 
California I managed a crew of 
30 serving breakfast 4:30 to 8 
a.m. and dinner 4:30 to 9 p.m. 
to 3,500 riders and 800 crew. 
And when I couldn't be there, 
her boyfriend or her brother 
and sister-in-law stepped into 
their places, riding or crewing 
near Anna. We are learning to 
dance, as Ram Dass would say, 
"on shifting sands," to music we 
never expected to hear. 

Sally notes that: "As presenting 
sponsor since 1993, Tanqueray has 
given riders and volunteers a 
means to deliver $54 million to 
AIDS charities. For current infor- 
mation about the epidemic, please 
read the cover article in the March 
1999 issue o/"Esquire. "

POTLIGHT 



YWCA Director Barbara Murphy 
Hale '60 Steps Down 

B\ Frances Jaqties 

Staff Writer, The Capital, 

Annapolis, MD 

Barbara Hale had a compelling 
reason tor joining the \'\VCA in 
1968 — the assassination of The 
Reverend Martin Luther King, 
Jr. At that time, the Y was taking 
an active role in keeping 
Annapolis from being engulted 
in violence as so man\' other 
American cities went up in 
flames. It organized dialogues in 
cirv churches and community' 
centers. 

Mrs. Hale — a mother ot five 
very young children — signed up 
to meet with such a group at the 
Stanton Center. In the 30 \'ears 
since then she continues with the 
same zeal and commitment to 
the cause of racial justice. 

"The ^WCA drew me into 
its fold because of its concern for 
promoting the inherent decency 
of evervone," she said. "This has 
always been my thrust and pri- 
mary' interest." Mrs. Hale 
stepped down Friday as the 
interim director of the YWCA 
of Annapolis and Anne Arundel 
Countv, having ser\'ed for nearly 
20 years as assistant executive 
director. "Barbara's passion and 
commitment to organizations 
will be difficult to replicate and 
impossible to forget," said Patty 
McManus, president ot the Y's 
board of directors. 

Mrs. Hale was asked to join 
the professional staff of the Y in 
1972. She was given the tide of 
volunteer coordinator/public ser- 
vice program director. 

As her professional life took 
off in pursuit of a dream, Mrs. 
Hale's private life descended into 
a nightmare. It was about this 
time that her first husband, John 
Archard, was diagnosed with a 
brain mmor that eventually killed 
him in 1975, but not before dev- 
astating his family. The tumor 




Barbara Hale 

changed his personality in such a 
wa\' that a loving and caring 
father and husband became a 
threat to his loved ones. 

Three years after his death, 
Mrs. Hale's 13-year-old daugh- 
ter, Elizabeth, was abducted and 
murdered while bic\'cling on Spa 
Road near Annapolis Middle 
School. The murderer, William J. 
Parker, is now serving a prison 
term in Hagerstown. 

After her daughter's death, 
she organized Compassionate 
Friends, a support group for par- 
ents who have lost a child to 
death. yVlthough she is no longer 
active in the group, it continues 
to help others. 

"I can talk about all of this 
now, it's a part of my life which I 
think about every day, I even 
went to the parole hearing for 
Parker and met him face to face," 
she said. "I only hope that he is 
never released from prison." 

Mrs. Hale's work at the Y and 
her second husband, Annapolis 
attorne\' Philip Hale, were the 
sustaining influences during 
these years. She has received 
many awards for her work, and 
called a three-week retreat she 
took under civil rights leader 
Dorothy Haight a "life-changing 
experience." 

In addition to enlarging the 
Y's racial dialogues in the 
schools, she established a fund- 
raising system, began writing 
proposals and grants and con- 



5 ducted volunteer recruitment and 
3 training. "I remember when we 
I first hit $100,000 a year," Mrs. 
= Hale said. "Now our budget is 
; $1.8 million with 65 employees 
tj and 30 grants to monitor." 
n Perhaps the major change in 
J the Y has been in its program 
focus. Once an activities organi- 
zation concentrating on classes 
such as homemaking skills, 
bridge and landscaping, the Y 
today concentrates on domestic 
violence, careers for displaced 
homemakers, parenting and fam- 
ily programs and affirmative 
action initiatives. 

"Back when we had our aero- 
bics program — incidentally we 
introduced aerobics classes to the 
count\' — we had 8,000 mem- 
bers," Mrs. Hale said. "Now the 
total membership of men, 
women and \'outh is less than 
2,000." 

But if its membership has 
decreased, the Y's influence on 
social problems facing minorities 
and women has broadened. Mrs. 
Hale — alwavs appearing serene 
and controlled, yet tenacious in 
pursuit of a goal — has played a 
major role in that change. "She 



continues to be passionate about 
her beliefs," Mrs. McManus said. 
"She is mission driven and in her 
own quiet way has touched every 
aspect of our organization." 

The Y win remember Mrs. 
Hale's work b}' setting up a 
scholarship and planting a tree 
on the grounds of the Y head- 
quarters in Arnold. As for the 
Y's fijture, Mrs. McManus is 
confident. "Its manv programs 
and activities wi]l continue and 
be carried out by our experienced

1 999 Distinguished Alumna Award 
TO Patricia Traugott Rouse '48 



Introdiictioti of Patricia Traugott 
Rouse at Founders' Day/Opening 
Convocation, September 24, 1999 
by Kathy Garcia Pegues '71, presi- 
dent of the Alumnae Association 

It is a very great pleasure and 
privilege for me, as president 
of the Alumnae Association, 
to introduce our 1999 Distin- 
guished Alumna Award vnnner: 
Patricia Traugott Rouse. Patty 
graduated from Sweet Briar 
magna cum laude in 1948 with a 
degree in British history, after 
spending her junior year at the 
University ot St. Andrews in 
Scodand. Patty is co-founder of 
the Enterprise Foundation, one 
of the leading non-profit organi- 
zations in the country woridng to 
provide housing tor low-income 
Americans. Her life has been one 
of dedicated service to others. 

We are delighted to have 
some of Patty's famU}' members 
here to celebrate with us: 
Patty's daughter, Maria Rixey 
Gamper '78; Patty's sister, Mary 
Perkins Traugott Brown '45; and 
Mary Goodwin Gamper '78, 
Maria's sister-in-law. Also here 
are Patty's classmates Indiana 
Lindsay BQisoly; Martha 
Mansfield Clement; Wayne 
Stokes Goodall; Marion Bower 
Harrison; Elvira Whitehead 
Morse; Eleanor Potts Snodgrass; 
and Helen Pender Withers. 

The co-founder of the Enter- 
prise Foundation was Patty's late 
husband Jim Rouse, philan- 
thropist and visionary developer 
ot Columbia, Maryland and of 
inner-city "festival marketplaces" 
including Baltimore's Harbor- 
place, Boston's Faneuil Hall, 
Atlanta's Underground, New 
York's South Street Seaport, and 
Norfolk's Waterside. Patty's aca- 
demic background and long vol- 



unteer experience enabled her to 
work with her famous hus- 
band — she shared his philan- 
thropic spirit and had done 
graduate work in urban studies at 
Old Dominion University. In 
creating the Enterprise Founda- 
tion, Patty and Jim together put 
into action their vision of revital- 
izing cities and providing low- 
income housing. Patty remains 
vice president, 
secretary, and trustee of the 
Foundation. 

Patty has lived a life of 
accomplishment and distinction. 
She has traveled widely and met 
with Presidents Carter, Bush, 
and Clinton as well as the Queen 
ot England. In 1991, she was 
appointed by President Bush to 
the Commission on National 
and Community Service Board. 
She served on the National 
Civilian Community Corps 
Advisory Board and is a former 
member of the boards of the 
National Low Income Housing 
Coalition and the National 
Committee Against Discrimina- 
tion in Housing. She was the 
first woman commissioner ot the 
Norfolk Redevelopment and 
Housing Authorit}' and in 1997, 
received an Honorary Doctorate 
of Humane Letters from Old 
Dominion Universir\', ot which 
she is a tormer trustee. She is a 
member of the Founders' Com- 
mittee of World Times, Inc., 
publisher of The World Paper, 
a newspaper promoting world 
peace. She has served as 
president and regional director 
of the Junior League and in 
many vital capacities as a 
volunteer at Sweet Briar. 

When I think of a house — 
mine or anyone's — I realize its 
importance in the upbringing of 
children in providing a sense of 



RESOLUTION 

BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of the Sweet Briar CoUege 
Alumnae Association, assembled on September 24, 1999, acknowl- 
edges with gratitude the many years of loyal and generous support that 
Patricia Traugott Rouse, Class of 1948, has given to Sweet Briar Col- 
lege. Through her nationwide work with the Enterprise Foundation to 
provide housing for the poor ot the United States, she has brought dis- 
tinction to the College and Inspiration to all her fellow alumnae. 

We are most gratetlil too tor the energy and vivacity- with which Patt}' 
has given "hands-on" service to Sweet Briar over the years. She was a 
member of the Board of the Alumnae Association from 1962-64 and 
of the Board of Directors of Sweet Briar College (known then as the 
Board of Overseers) from 1971-75. From 1975-78 she was Chairman 
of the Boxwood Circle. She was an Alumna Admissions Representa- 
tive and President of the Norfolk Alumnae Club, and in 1993, was one 
of the principal organizers of a Recognition Weekend in Baltimore. 
Patty served on the Reunion Gifts Committee for her class's 40th 
Reunion and has been a Reunion leadership donor 

The Alumnae Association wishes to express its deepest appreciation to 

Patt\', our 1999 Distinguished Alumna, tor maintaining vigorous 

involvement with her alma mater even while juggling the demands of 

family and an illustrious careen They do so by way of this Resolution 

to be recorded in the official Minutes and to be transmitted to her

identitv' and worth, and also its 
importance in building a sense ot 
community. Patty's dedication to 
providing this basic necessit\' to 
our poorest citizens is trulv 
inspiring. "If we raise up national 
visions, what ought to be, can be!'* 
It is indeed fitting at the start ot 
this new academic year to cele- 



brate Patty's devotion to others 
by presenting her with one of 
Sweet Briar's highest honors, the 
Distinguished Alumna Award.

Acceptance of Distinguished Alumna Award 




Pattv' Rouse holds framed copy of the Alumnae Association Board's Resolution, 
presented to her in recognition of "the many years of loyal support... given to 
Sweet Briar College." 



By Patricia Traugott Rouse '48 

Being the recipient of the 
Distinguished Alumna Award is 
indeed a ver\' special honor. I'm 
not only honored, I'm over- 
whelmed, flattered, and humbled 
and I'm also blessed because I 
had the opportunity to attend 
Sweet Briar College. Sweet Briar 
gave me the education that I 
needed to be usefiillv involved in 



my communit\'. I majored in his- 
tor\' but there were so many 
other fields of inspiration. The 
setting at Sweet Briar was, and 
stiU is, so conducive to learning. I 
remember so well leaving the 
libran' one afternoon and saving 
to myself" that I would never be 
in this situation again where I 
could spend time studving in 
such a remarkable and relaxed 
setting. 



I had the opportunit\' while at 
Sweet Briar to be a volunteer at 
the nearby Indian mission. As a 
matter of fact I've never forgot- 
ten that a baby was named after 
me there. I also had the opportu- 
nity to spend mv junior vear at 
St. Andrews in Scodand, which 
meant that I was in the first 
group of students to stud\' 
abroad after the war. I might add 
that the Class of '48 was at 
Sweet Briar during a crucial time 
of change with World War II 
ending after our freshman year. 

The close relationship of sm- 
dents and faculty at Sweet Briar 
meant so much to all of us, and 
the lasting friendships we made 
with our fellow classmates and 
other students were extraordi- 
naxy. As you've heard, some of 
my classmates and my sister and 
daughter, both Sweet Briar grad- 
uates, are here today. Having all 
of them here means more to me 
than I can say. 

I was fortunate also to have 
been able to ser\'e on the Alum- 
nae Association Board and the 
College's Board of Overseers and 
make lasting friendships there. 
Before I met Jim Rouse, mv 
career had been as a homemaker 
raising four wonderful children 
and in the voluntary sector. I did 
volunteer work in manv capaci- 
ties but particularly in activities 
involving social welfare in the 
inner citv'. The Junior League 
gave me very special training 
related to community organiza- 
tions, and it was as the first 
woman commissioner of the 
Norfolk Redevelopment and 
Housing Authorirv that I really 
learned about low-income hous- 
ing- 
After mv first marriage 

ended, I worked on a graduate 
degree in urban affairs at Old 



Dominion Universit}'; it was 
then that I met Jim Rouse. 
When we got married in 1974, a 
Sweet Briar alumna studying for 
the ministr)' assisted in the cere- 
monv. 

Jim and I dedicated our lives 
to decent housing and decent 
neighborhoods for the poor. I 
trulv feel that we received so 
much more than we gave in 
doing this work. 

]\h' life, like everyone else's, 
has been a journey — complete 
with twists and turns, mountains 
and vallevs. Some of my early 
memories of the journey come 
from riding trains with my 
father, a railroad man. 

Through the years from the 
windows of the trains, I saw 
where countr\' and cit\' met and 
departed again. It was how I first 
saw the scrubbed, white marble 
steps of Baltimore. However, I 
don't remember being disturbed 
in the late '30s and '40s by the 
ugliness of garbage and trash 
strewn along the tracks, the 
abandoned warehouses, old tires, 
graffiti, and miserable housing 
that you see today on a train ride 
between New York and Balti- 
more and Washington. I'm sure 
the \dews are just as depressing 
going in and out of other Ameri- 
can cities on the train when you 
see the underbelly of the cit}' and 
the places along the tracks where 
mam' forgotten people live. I 
often wonder what \isitors from 
foreign countries think about 
this. Is this really "America the 
Beautiful"? 

Those people existing at the 
bottom of our society are the 
people I worry about. Those are 
the people that Jim and I 
founded The Enterprise Founda- 
tion to ser\'e. 

During the '70s we were 



Sweet Briar College Alumnae Magazine • www.alumnae.sbc.edu 



Winter 2000* 31 



involved with JubUee Housing in 
Wasiiington and were inspired 
b\- that organization to launch 
The Enterprise Foundation in 
1982. We chose the name Enter- 
prise because of our belief in the 
free enterprise system, but 
believing that in the free enter- 
prise s}'stem, conditions didn't 
have to be so desperate in our 
inner cities. Working with vari- 
ous local and national partners 
over the last 17 )'ears, Enterprise 
has helped make possible 
100,000 homes in more than 400 
areas, has helped place more than 
28,000 people in jobs, and has 
helped hundreds of communities 
become safer and stronger. 

We all need to be aware of 
those neighborhoods along the 
railroad tracks and in the inner 
cities — those communities that 
time and bureaucracy have over- 
looked — and we need to help see 
that they are improved. 

Jim used to sav that he could 
change the face of New York if 
he could take every CEO there, 
one-bv-one, on a personal tour 
of places like The Bronx and 
Harlem. He felt they would see 
the problems with their own eves 
and do something to make a dif- 
ference. 

That's what we all need to 
do — make a difference. When 
we teach our children and our 
grandchildren to sing "America 
the Beautifiil," we should mean 
what we sing. But we all know 
that some parts of America aren't 
so beautifiil, or at least their 
beauty lies within the people, not 
the buildings and surroundings 
with all the drugs, violence, 
extreme poverty', and homeless- 
ness. But that can change with 
collective efforts. Americans 
must work together to find solu- 
tions and demonstrate that there 
are solutions. That's what The 
Enterprise Foundation is doing. 
Hope for a beautifiil America 
arises out of a growing deep con- 
cern among people who are 



determined to see that America 
becomes what she ought to be. 
America can be beautifiil, not 
just in amber waves of grain and 
in places like Sweet Briar, but in 
the inner cit\', and not just for 
those with means, but for those 
without. Seeing that there is a 
beautiful America is surely a 
journey worth taking. 

We need to think big — to see 
opportunities, not roadblocks — 
to see solutions, not problems. In 
that regard I want to share a 
quote from a talk that Jim gave 
1 1 years ago and that stiU has 
great meaning for us in 1999. 1 
share this \vith vou because I 
don't have the gift that Jim had 
of coming forth with eloquent 
words. And so I quote: 

"We shouldn't tolerate the 
conditions in which the poor 
live, because it is intolerable... It 
takes a big goal, a big image to 
energize people. The rational 
image of what can be is the 
biggest power generator there is, 
and the least used. We tend to 
setde for some small objectives, 
small goals, because the\' seem to 
be doable, instead of the big 
goals which are actuall\' more 
doable because of the great sup- 
port they generate. The best way 
to attack any problem is to ask 
what things would be like if they 
worked. We can't just settle for 
doing some housing, finding 
some jobs, or building some 
human support systems. We 
must do it all — decent housing 
in decent neighborhoods for 
evePt'one. 

"That is not a ridiculous goal. 
That ought to be a minimum 
goal in our society. . .It can be 
done. 7\nd it must be done. . .We 
can't accept life as it is in this 
country. It has got to be 
changed. And it has got to be 
changed radically, by us." 

I hope we'll all follow this 
advice as we journey' forward. 

Thank you for letting me 
share this with you.

Transitions 






loan Kent 
1941-1999 

With deep sadness we report the 
death of ]oan Kent on September 2 1 
in her hometown, Great Village, Nova 
Scotia, Canada. She was 58. 

After serving as a lecturer at Mount 
Allison University (1966-69), and visit- 
ing assistant professor, University of 
British Columbia (1969-71), Dr. Kent 
came to Sweet Briar in 1971 as assis- 
tant professor of history, rising to pro- 
fessor in 1984. Throughout her tenure, 
she was an exemplary College citizen, 
worl<ing on or chairing virtually every 
academic committee, including the 
Faculty Board (serving as chair several 
times); the 1989 Presidential Search 
Committee; and the 1995-97 Natural 
Bridge Strategic Planning Croup. 
Among many awards and grants, she 
received a grant from the Mednick 
Fellowship by the Virginia Foundation 
for Independent Colleges in 1997, and 
in 1998 was awarded the Dana Fac- 
ulty Fellowship for outstanding profes- 
sional accomplishments. 

Dr. Kent earned the B.A. (Honours 
History, 1962) from Mount Allison 
University; M.A. in history (19641 from 
Smith College; and Ph.D. in history 
(1971) from University College, Uni- 
versity of London. Her major field of 
study was Tudor, Stuart and early 
Georgian England. Secondary fields of 
research and teaching included Early 
Modern Europe, Medieval Europe, 
European Civilization, Modern Britain, 
the History of Crime, Family History, 






and Women's History. 

Author of numerous books, arti- 
cles, and reviews, she was working on 
a book-length project on English 
social history 1640-1740. In 1996 she 
received the Donald M. Sutherland 
Prize awarded by the American Soci- 
ety for Legal History "for the article 
deemed the most significant contribu- 
tion to English legal history published 
in 1995." In 1998, she served on the 
National Screening Committee of the 
Fulbrighf-Hayes Program to review 
graduate applications for study in the 
United Kingdom. 

A fine scholar, teacher, and col- 
league, Joan Kent will be sorely 
missed in all of these roles. But she 
will be missed most profoundly for her 
strong spirit, generosity, and warm, 
outreaching friendship. 

Friends and Associates 
Remember Joan Kent 

Eileen Scully 78, Assistant 
Professor of History, Princeton 
University: 

I had the great privilege of know- 
ing loan Kent first as a student and his- 
tory major, then as a fellow historian 
and history professor. 

As an undergraduate and history 
major some 20 years ago, I found in 
Professor Kent a standout teacher and 
mentor. Anyone who ever took a class 
from her can attest to her dedication, 
professionalism, and willingness to 
give of herself. For me, though, what I 



most valued at that time was that Joan 
Kent made room for, personally 
embodied, and gave campus-wide 
legitimacy to, the possibility of being 
genuinely, insistently eccentric at 
Sweet Briar. I think we all have forever 
in our minds that picture of her at 
graduation with the English-style hat, 
academic robe, and army boots. 
That's no simple photograph, as we 
historians like to say. It's an artifact of 
a complicated micro-society. 

Sweet Briar seemed to many at the 
time a place driven by social pressure 
and conformity I personally felt quite 
the outsider. Of course, by my 1 0th 
Reunion, I had discovered that every- 
body else had felt exactly the same 
way leaving us to wonder who, after 
all, had been the "golden girl" insider 
we were all busy worrying about. 
However, at that time, as an 1 8- and 
19-year old, those feelings were very 
real to me, and it was an absolutely 
life-altering experience to run across a 
true, unapologetic nonconformist. I 
recall in my freshman year coming out 
of a western civilization class with 
her; as I was going on about some- 
thing or other, she said, "Well, maybe 
you are a mystic." Quite different this 
was from the career advice all around 
me, but Professor Kent made it seem 
that being a mystic might be a viable 
professional option, as good as — if not 
better than — being a lawyer or doing 
management training. 

That she was respected and 
beloved by all sorts of students, the 
"cool" and "uncool," the academi- 
cally engaged and the less studious, 
showed someone like me that there 
was a place for me here, that what 
seemed on the surface a homoge- 
neous elite group was complicated 
enough to include someone who had 
a subversive sense of humor, a brood- 
ing intensity, and a love for the histori- 
cally incongruent. 

What was particularly unique 
about this eccentricity and nonconfor- 
mity was that loan Kent was an out- 
standing citizen of the College. 
Involved in so many committees, 
departmental commitments, student 
affairs and organizations, she was not 
the dissenter who drops out or 
ridicules from the sidelines. She had 
the unusual talent of being able to be 
energetically engaged in and dedi- 
cated to a community a college, an 
institution, while avoiding being 
wholly absorbed by that larger organ- 
ism and purpose. Being able to hold 
onto a critical distance and a subver- 



sive impulse while at the same time 
throwing oneself into the life of a col- 
lege is a feat of amazing dexterity. 

My decision 10 years after gradua- 
tion to go to graduate school for a 
Ph.D. in history, and my experiences 
these last six years as a university 
history professor, have given me a 
much more informed and even deeper 
appreciation of Joan Kent. 

First, in graduate school, I came to 
hear about the revolution among his- 
torians in the late 1960s trying to top- 
ple traditional, elite-focused, 
state-centered history and put in its 
place a "from the bottom up" vision of 
the past. I remember once reading 
something from this new "social his- 
tory" that cited Dr. Kent's 1986 study 
of the village constable in pre-modern 
England, and thinking, "so that's what 
she was on about." I understood as I 
had not fully during my undergraduate 
days what kind of an historical imagi- 
nation loan Kent brought to her work, 
and how important was her effort to 
make history a study of the intersec- 
tion of big forces and small lives. 

As a professor daily in the class- 
room, I have also come to appreciate 
the kind of instructor and mentor she 
was. I now know what it takes to be 
available to students, to be on com- 
mittees, to develop new courses and 
write new lectures when the old might 
do. Particularly at a small college like 
Sweet Briar that depends absolutely 
on dedicated, self-driven and over- 
committed faculty, doing all that one 
is called upon to do and then more, 
means time away from the next arti- 
cle, the next chapter, the next book. 
What I feel in this regard is something 
like the dawning of understanding we 
get about our parents when we 
become adults and parents ourselves. 
We understand, finally and deeply, 
what they gave up to spend time on 
us. 

I was in touch with Joan a number 
of times in the last 10 years and was 
able to share with her my success in 
finishing the Ph.D. and getting a great 
job. She did convey some of the regret 
she felt about not getting further along 
on her next big book project. The arti- 
cle she wrote in 1995 laying out her 
arguments won a prize for that year's 
best article in English history and the 
completed book was expected to have 
a major impact on her field. 

Now that I understand from this 
side of the desk what it takes to pro- 
duce THE BOOK, and then others in 
its wake, and to write scholarly arti-

cles while also advising stu- 
dents, being a good campus 
citizen and holding oneself to 
the highest standards of excel- 
lence in teaching, I feel more 
keenly what it meant for )oan 
to so often choose us, the 
College, over the next article, 
the next chapter, the next 
book. 

As a professor, I try to 
model myself after her in par- 
ticular ways, including: 1) 
always being for the students, 
whether that means showing 
compassion in a given 
instance, giving a low grade if 
deserved, or standing up to 
the administration when nec- 
essary; 2) seeking individual- 
ity dispassion and 
nonconformitv' even while 
being a vital part of a larger 
community, organization, and 
purpose; 3) nurturing and 
sharing a subversive sense of 
humor that pulls up the cur- 
tain to reveal the levers, pul- 
leys, and props keeping 
reality and normalcy center 
stage. 

Elisabeth S. Muhlenfeld, 
President of Sweet Briar 
College 

Excerpted comments from 
the Sweet Briar Memorial Ser- 
vice: 

We at Sweet Briar were 
immeasurably enriched for 28 
years by loan Kent's life and 
work. She has left behind at 
Sweet Briar a legacy of hon- 
esty, scholarship, caring, good 



humor, and dedication that 
will live as long as we all 
live... 

loan did everything 
wholeheartedly from advising 
students to reading proposals 
for Fulbright fellowships to 
the dreaded grading of 
papers. She was one of the 
architects of our College's 
strategic vision for the 2 1 st 
century, and she looked for- 
ward wholeheartedly to 
implementing that vision, and 
to seeing the college she 
served remain in the forefront 
of liberal arts education for 
women. That she will not be 
at our side in the next few 
years is a loss we can ill 
aft'ord, and a loss our future 
students will never know. But 
whatever we achieve will be 
in large part because of loan's 
work, and her heart. 

Aileen H. Laing '57, 
Professor of History of 
Art, Sweet Briar College 

loan and I arrived at 
Sweet Briar in the same year, 
i vividly remember her arrival 
at the first faculty meeting. 
Her little sports car zoomed 
into the parking lot at the 
penultimate moment and out 
she hopped, breathless but 
enthusiastic to begin her 
career in a woman's college 
in the heart of Virginia. Over 
the years loan and I covered a 
lot of territory together. We 
served on many of the same 
committees, we team-taught 



several courses and we enter- 
tained the students in our 
joint classes. 

Twice we team-taught a 
course in London that was 
both challenging and fun. As 
many of you undoubtedly 
know, loan loved a good time 
and yet seemed able to 
bounce back the next day 
with no ill effects. After a full 
day of tramping around the 
streets of London talking 
about Tudor and Stuart kings 
and looking at the artifacts 
from that period, she and I 
would head off to the nearest 
pub to recharge our batteries 
and perhaps to meet up with 
some of her London friends. It 
was often the wee hours of 
the morning before she was 
ready to give up and return to 
our lodgings. Next day she 
would appear full of vigor 
and thought-provoking pro- 
jects for our students to grap- 
ple with. It's difficult for me to 
believe that she was felled so 
soon, because 1 truly thought 
she was indestructible. 

loan loved her two basset 
hounds, Genghis and 
Clothilde, both of whom pre- 
deceased her. Many are the 
tales she told about chasing 
Genghis around Amherst 
County as he chased deer or 
rabbits. I can't help thinking 
that she is reunited with them 
now and they are all enjoying 
a good run through the 
Elysian fields. 

loan Kent was a brilliant 
scholar, an excellent teacher. 



and superb politician. She 
was also a gracious hostess 
and exuberant bon vivant. But 
most of all she was my friend, 
and I will miss her. 



Gerald Berg, 
Professor of History, 
Sweet Briar College: 

loan Kent cut a large 
swath through our commu- 
nity. No one better exempli- 
fied the academic ideal of a 
teaching scholar. She prac- 
ticed her historical craft with 
vigor at the highest of profes- 
sional standards and infused 
into her everyday teaching 
the love of learning for its 
own sake. Students knew her 
for the home-baked cookies 
she brought to class along 
with her considerable learn- 
ing and sensed through them 
both her abiding interest in 
their well-being. The acade- 
mic world knew her for her 
work on the legal history of 
Tudor Stuart Britain, though, 
to speak to her, one would 
never know it. 

Though her life as a 
scholar would probably be 
the one she herself would 
choose to mention on those 
very rare occasions when she 
would take notice of herself, 
our community knew her pri- 
marily as a peacemaker, loan 
held opinions fiercely but 
expressed them most often by 
example and, at times, in 
words most delicately bal- 
anced as to engage rather 



than to confront the listener. 
So, she was frequently sought 
for public responsibilities rep- 
resenting the faculty and the 
College as a whole in the 
vastly complex maze of acad- 
emic politics. She held these 
positions lightly Though she 
served in the most critical 
spots at the most critical 
times, she openly disdained 
such service as distractions 
from the life of learning to 
which she was supremely 
devoted. 

Those who knew her well 
will remember most fondly 
loan's elegant celebration of 
life: the well-cured joint of 
venison, the generously- 
poured gin and tonic, the art- 
fully contrived story 
preferably brimming with 
irony and of course, the wit, 
very dry indeed. These were 
private pleasures she enjoyed 
publicly with those who were 
fortunate enough to know her.

diASs Notes 



1930 



Secretary: Elizabeth (Scootie) Corsline 

Greetings Irom your new secrelcir\. 
Since I'm "not accustomed to public 
speaking" as it were, please bear with 
me. From hvo daughters and one 
daughter-in-law comes the sad news of 
the deaths of their mothers, m\' class- 
mates: Eunice Walters Claybaugh 
(12/961, Alice Lee Perkins Clayton 
(3/99), and Betsy Williams Gilmore 
(2/99). And the -Alumnae Office has 
just informed me i>l the death of 
Lindsay Prentis Woodroofe in 7/99. 
Our numbers are dwindling! Betsy 
Williams was a wonderful secretarv' 
and following in her footsteps will be a 
"hard row to hoe". Sweet Briar was in 
her thoughts always. 

One of our "lost" classmates, 
Louise Nelson Redd, has been found. 
She is living down at the Chesapeake 
Bav near Fleeton in a little house she 
had built next to her daughter's, sur- 
rounded by six grandchildren and vari- 
ous foreign students. She is busy and 
happv. I see her frequently and we talk 
on the phone. Carolyn Martindale 
Blouin says she has little news to 
report but wants to keep in touch and 
so has extended a very cordial invita- 
tion to all of us to stop by and see her 
if and when we travel to Maine. 
Delma Chambers Glazier is in a retire- 
ment home in Baltimore. She says 
there are several other Sweet Briar 
"gals" there but most of them younger. 
Gladys Webster Norton recently com- 
pleted a wonderful ten week cruise 
around South America with her daugh- 
ter. She is also the proud great-grand- 
mother of ten great-grandchildren, 
ages 1 3 years to 2 months. Frances 
Harrison McGriffith lives alone and 
seems to manage quite well. She is 
about to celebrate her 90th with a 
party given by her daughter. She says 
she had hoped to slip into this decade 
quietly but will enjoy the gathering. 
She is busy with church committees, a 
reading group, and exercise club 3 
times a week. Her grandsons are a joy 
to her, one married and one about to 
return home from South America. Sally 
Reahard writes she is "pretty feeble" 
but keeps busy with deskwork. She has 
suggested that I print a list of 1930 sur- 
vivors to date, and Carolyn Martindale 
Blouin has made the same suggestion. 
So if you want this, "stand up and be 
counted". Return your cards to me 
next time. From Tampa, Elizabeth 
Carnes writes she is still "alive" and 
busy volunteering in the church office. 
She also sews and knits a lot — some 
for herself and much for new babies. 
She wonders how many of us will 
make reunion next year? I do too. 
Margaret Taliaferro had a bad fall 
10/98 followed by several since, and 
her cousin moved her to Jacksonville, 
FL where he lives and can oversee her 
needs. She is now in ,MI Saints Nursing 
Home and Rehabilitation Facilitv. 
Finally, I live with my sister in an old 
house in the old part of Richmond. I 
still drive and I am busy, busy, busy 



volunteering — church, civic aftairs, etc. 
I celebrated my 90th birthday last 
August with a Progressive Dinner given 
by my neighbors — some 30-40 individ- 
uals. It was a blast! And now, as Betsy 
Gilmore would say, "full speed ahead 
to reunion!" 



1936 



President: Mary Virginia Camp Smith 
Secretary: Katharine Niles Parker 
Fund Agent: Margaret Smith 
Thomasson 

Our first communication had trav- 
eled farthest, coming from one who 
has traveled much. Emily Bowen 
Muller O'Neill left SBC freshman year. 
Following WWI she married and had 
two children. At retirement she moved 
to Oak Harbor, WA and got seriously 
into gardening and travelling abroad. 
Husband George died and Emily mar- 
ried Bill O'Neill. They are now think- 
ing of transferring to a place smaller 
than five acres. Mary Vogdes Haines of 
Wynnev\ood, P.A does a Tittle garden- 
ing and needlepoint and she and her 
husband love to go out to dinner at the 
club. Sophie Campbell Brown, since 
losing her husband, has divided time 
between her daughter's at Fort 
Lauderdale and her farm in Amherst, 
VA. June De Frees Heelan of 
Morristown, N| died in 5/98. Our con- 
dolences to her family. Betty Cocke 
Winfree of Roanoke, VA has five 
grandchildren who have finished col- 
lege; four are married and there are 
three great-grandchildren. Betty says 
she does less and less and loves every 
minute of it. Martha Hornor Maxwell 
continues to reside in Clarksburg, VW, 
and in June was looking foRvard to the 
marriage of her granddaughter 
Katherine. Margaret Robertson 
Densmore-Whitney of Falls Church, 
VA is planning to spend the month of 
August at Princeton, MA and antici- 
pates a visit with your secretary. Capel 
Grimes Gerlach of Palos Verdes 
Estates, CA has lost her husband. She 
misses their times and travels together 
and is trying to adjust. Marjorie Wing 
Todd of Eustis, FL feels fortunate that 
three of her four children live nearby, 
and sends best wishes to her class- 
mates. A grandson will enter the 
Universit\' of Pennsylvania this fall. 
Mary Rich Ewing of Denver, CO says 
she is still having an interesting time 
with genealogy and spent 1 2 days in 
May in Northern Wales with a group. 
Plans to get to Cape Cod in August. 
Elizabeth Pinkerton Scott continues at 
Bundoran Drive in North Garden, VA, 
but maintains an apartment in a retire- 
ment community she calls her "ace in 
the hole." Regrets the number of 
deaths among her friends, but sends 
love and "chins up!" Margaret Smith 
Thomasson of Lynchburg, VA fell in a 
shallow creek (too wide for jumping) 
while hiking the "Trail" and cracked a 
kneecap. She had to walk three miles 
back to her car and wear a brace for a 
while, but is now back to hiking once 



a week. Margaret has 7 grandchildren. 
Some are married and working and 
some are still in school. Not hiking, 
but familiar with knees and grandchil- 
dren is your secretary whose unreliable 
knees seem a basic cause of confine- 
ment in a nursing facility with husband 
in an adjacent apartment, which 
sounds like Pinkie's "ace." I count 14 
grandchildren scattered from VA to 
WA, VT and TX. My great grandmother 
bracelet has eleven bangles with room 
for a couple more. She, too, sends love 
and "chins up."

Saul Farrier, Sarah Belk Gambrell 
Lucy Gordan jeffers. Narcissa Dillard 
Kelley. Elsie Day Mack Yvonne 
Leggett Sanford. Jean Oliver Sartor, 
and Jean McKenney Stoddard. A 
bushel of thanks Annie for many years 
of good reporting. Lucy Gordan Jeffers 
reports that the 39ers had fun together, 
the weather was superb and the cam- 
pus beautiful. The only sad note was 
the news of Clarissa Bailey Robinson's 
death on Saturday. Her name was read 
at the Memorial Service Sunday morn- 
ing. Mary Jeff Welles Pearson is enjoy- 
ing the people, beautiful surroundings, 
activities and comfort of Shenandoah 
Valley Westminster Canterburv'. She 
sees Jo Sutton McCandlish '38 and 
Mary Louise Moore '67. Dutch 
Hauber Crowe, "well and peppy at 81, 
stays busy with bridge, dinners out and 
many University of Delaware activi- 
ties." Sarah Belk Gambrell is the proud 
grandmother of twin grandsons who 
just celebrated their first birthday. They 
are the sons of her daughter Sally and 
her husband Steve Knight. She is glad 
to report everyone is happy and 
healthy and they live nearby so she 
gets to see them often. Henri Minor 
Hart has just recovered from a broken 
shoulder. Her foursome of Lottie Lewis 
Woolen, Gracie Luckett Bradley and 
Lillian Neely Willis missed their big get 
together, but hope to re-group later. 
Sarah Tams Kreker went to Western 
Carolina University to see her great- 
niece and namesake receive her BFA 
in Painting. Mary Elizabeth Barge 
Shroder has moved to a smaller house 
after 47 years of Habersham Rd. Five 
of her grandchildren have finished col- 
lege, three are married, one grandson 
is at UVA and three are in prep school. 
She enjoyed the SB Living Room 
Learning Course held weekly at Pegg\' 
Martin's '48. She finds that "there is 
never enough time to do all the thing 
that interest me." Patty Balz Vincent 
still volunteers at Duke University 
Museum of Art and is enjoying the six 



v\'eek Dance Festival now in progress. 
Ellie George Frampton enjoys emailing 
her grandchildren. She is thrilled that 
daughter Anne and family have bought 
a farm about a mile from her place in 
Charlottesville. Annie Benedict Swain 
reports that she keeps busy with 
church and her activities at Waverley. 
Anne Parks is well and enjoys good 
health. She caught up with news from 
Lucy Jeffers after our reunion. J.O. 
Oliver Sartor not only was at SB for 
reunion but came a week early for her 
granddaughter's graduation. With 
daughter Elizabeth Sarfor'67, who was 
there with her twin daughters, they 
represented three generations at SBC. 
Aubrey Siebert Snyder in Whiting, ME 
where she is a senior part of the 
Whiting Village School Committee 
protesting the proposed switch to con- 
solidation of 7-12 grades into a large 
distant education for the children. 
Yvonne Leggett Sanford says that with 
their extended family, life is always 
busy and full. She loved reunion and is 
proud to be our new class president. 
Mary Brower Henderson still works 
with Northwestern University 
Settlement, altar guild and visits each 
year with son and family in London. 
Two sons in Chicago, two grandchil- 
dren married in '99. There are "many 
blessings." Kay Porter Reed moved to 
a townhouse seven years ago when 
her husband passed away. Plays lots of 
golf and bridge, takes a trip every sum- 
mer with family members, Persia last 
year. She has a son in Midlothian, VA, 
a doctor son in Newport News and 
daughter in Atlanta. Daughter Maria 
'68 has presented her with a grand- 
daughter. Augusta Saul Farrier is 
enjoying Brandon Oaks Retirement 
Community in Roanoke, VA with old 
friends as well as new and keeping up 
with ten grands and three great grands 
from New York to Atlanta. Son John is 
a State Senator, Tom busy with medical 
practice, and Betsy Edwards Anderson 
'70 is active at Charlotte Country Day 
School. Janet Thorpe was disappointed 
to miss reunion because of a painful 
leg problem-since relieved. However, 
her late cancellation brought a nice 
bonus of phone calls from Lucy Jeffers, 
Yvonne Sanford, Jean Stoddard, jean 
Moore von Sternberg anrl Julie 
Michaux. Lottie Lewis Woolen writes 
that Gracey Luckett Bradley and 
Lillian Neely Willis spent a night in 
June and they wished they could have 
been at SB. Both were en route to 
grandchildren's graduations. Elizabeth 
Perkins Prothro, looking forward to a 
visit from Betsy Muhlenfeld in a few 
days, writes that with daughter, Kay 
'61 and her grand daughter they make 
up quite a SB contingent. Daughter 
Kay is Mayor of Witchita Falls and 
doing well from all reports. "With sons 
Mark and Joe and their extended fami- 
ly, there would be 32 of us if we could 
ever get together!" Like Janet, I hated 
to miss reunion. My first ever. Also, it 
was my leg or rather ankle which was 
in a cast. I expect to be out of the cast 
and rarin' to go next week. Still the

1942 



President: Ann Morrison Reams 
Secretary: Douglas Woods Sprunt 
Fund Agent: Florence Bagley Witt 

The idea of collecting our memo- 
ries of the Depression, and WWII years 
came after a nice young man held 
open a door at Sweet Briar in 1 997 
and asked when I had been there. He 
was stunned, as if I had stepped off 
Noah's Ark, to hear 1942. "What was 
it like then?" he said with real interest. 
So here, based on your postcards, as 
Margie Troutman Harbin wrote, are 
"bits and pieces of our lives"-before 
computers, TV, cell phones, locked 
doors, drugs, student cars on campus, 
men in the dormitories, instant oatmeal 
and cloned sheep. 

September 1938 we arrived! By 
train or car the orientation committee 
met us, waving and welcoming. Eloise 
English Rankin writes: "I left my Navy 
family in Coronado and arrived on 
campus a homesick stranger." Well I 
certainly never thought ol her that way. 
Everyone looked like sophisticated 
women of the world to me in freshman 
aprons, smoking on the arcades. I crept 
around hoping nobody would notice 
me, humiliated by my shoes. Saddle 
shoes, but not Spauldings. All wrong. 
Ruth Jacquot Tempest: "The big 
wardrobe trunks in the halls, fall and 
spring." There was the morning roar of 
plumbing in the one big bathroom on 
each floor as we raced to classes, 
which started at eight six days a week. 
No pajamas allowed at Breakfast, even 
if hidden by raincoats. Betsy Cilmer 
Tremain: "When we entered, the 
tuition was $1,000, above average for 
Virginia colleges we were told. During 
our 4 years it was increased to $1,200 
which we feared our fathers couldn't 
afford. They managed and we stayed." 
Lucy Call Dabney's "Soup Dinners" 
helped the Reese boys through college 
(the soup was delicious homemade 
vegetable with fresh hot bread, thanks 
to marvelous Mrs. Brown). We had lots 
of student waitresses and for pocket 
money sold newspapers, represented 
florists and other firms in Lynchburg. 
Betty Hanger and I were rivals in the 
cleaning business. Bonus Marchers, 
kidnap threats against one of my 
friends whose father was in Congress, 
lines of sad faced men begging on 
Connecticut Avenue and newsboys 
shouting "Extra!" in the night (always a 
tragedy of war or violence), made me 
happy to leave Washington. Ruth 
Hensley Camblos: ")ust going through 
the gates of Sweet Briar took us into 
another world. Daddy was a family 
doctor and during those years brought 
home lots of hams and fresh vegeta- 
bles. In 1929 I found a beautiful doll 
under the Christmas tree, but it was the 
last pretty' doll I had for a while." 
Margie: "One vivid memory is a gaunt 
women walking to our door in Atlanta 
and just about demanding a doll for 
her little girl for Christmas. I was 



scared of her but my mother found a 
doll and some other things. The 
Depression hung over everything." In 
1994 Helen Sanford gave the Founders 
Day Address saying the class of '42 
arrived at Sweet Briar in 9/38. Europe 
was on the verge of WWII. Hitler was 
in control of Germany. Germany had 
annexed Austria and was hovering 
over Czechoslovakia. Within a year, 
Germany and Russia had divided 
Poland between them, and England 
and France had gone to war against 
Germany. The war was a thread run- 
ning through our lives, but in fact it did 
not much affect what we did at Sweet 
Briar until the U.S. was directly 
involved. We were proud that Miss 
Glass was on many national commit- 
tees, and we joined in her valiant 
struggle lo build an auditorium and the 
College endowment to one million. 
Bambi Ryan: "There was much talk 
about lend-lease, bundles for Britain 
and distinguished speakers on the cri- 
sis in Europe." Betsy: "When I solicited 
Miss Jessie Eraser for the Friends of Art 
she asked a question I couldn't answer. 
I replied simply 'I don't know.' That 
struck the right chord with Miss Eraser 
who retorted, 'My dear by admitting 
you do not know, you have the mak- 
ings of a real scholar.'" Most of our 
papers were written by hand, certainly 
all exams and notes. Dotty Hutchings 
Donley transferred as a sophomore: 
"SBC was like dying and going to 
heaven — friendly, welcoming, knowl- 
edgeable professors who cared. 
Professor Robinson (Art) and Professor 
Cole (Math) went to bat to let me 
major in those disciplines." Ginnie 
Wilkinson Swanson: "Miss Benedict 
really opened my mind." Diana Stout 
Allen: "Basic courses which still give 
me pleasure. My college age grand- 
children spend more time off campus 
than on, know more about Caribbean 
Lit than Shakespeare." Cynthia Abbott 
Dougherty: "Pop Worthington's rum- 
bling phonetics^ Dr. SholJ (on Yale 
Sabbatical I 17'" and 18'" century 1 it- 
heaven! lanet Quinn Eichacker: 
"Reading the New Testament and 
Homer in beginning Greek class." 
Helen: "Botany and Miss Ames, Miss 
Sanford, Miss Crawford and Mr. Finch, 
that wonderful opera course and the 
glee club, and Mrs. Raymond's 
European histories." Eloise: "English 
honors courses and seminars with Dr. 
Stockholm." Eddie Syska Peltier: "Still 
have Miss Umbright's music notes 
somewhere." We participated, heart 
and soul. Paint and Patches, choir, glee 
club, publications, wrote poetry, paint- 
ed, gave little talks in the chapel in 
Manson, did good works in the com- 
munity, walked to the cabin, dairy 
orchard. Athletics, Ruth J.T., "poison- 
ous green gym bloomer and tunics." 
Ann Reams "with a trench coat outside 
the gym or dorm" (I made it to the 6'" 
freshman hockey team). Ann also says 
our beautiful Naval Academy Color 
Girl Bobbie Engh Croft "broke her 
thumb in modern dance, that was a 
hard one to understand." Bobbie: 
"Fried apples at the Inn, honeysuckle 
in the dells, friendships and meeting 
Croswell through Peggy Gearing 
Wickham." We wore knee length skirts 
for tennis. Always skirts and dresses. 
No pants. Very serious about party and 
evening dresses, and hats and gloves 



for Lynchburg. Barbara Ripley Furniss 

wrote from Arizona: "I recently saw an 
excellent play set in Atlanta in 1939. 
Two college-age daughters sat down 
crossing their legs at the ankles and 
folding their hands in their laps, they 
could have come right out of our year- 
books. Who drilled that into us?" We 
buttoned our cardigans backwards, 
wore dickeys, double-breasted polo 
coats, learned to iron or sent laundry 
home in boxes, no drip dry, no wrin- 
kles fashionable. We were expected to 
(and therefore did) change for dinner 
into dresses, stockings and real shoes. 
So afterwards we could dance with 
each other in Commons. Learn to play 
bridge, sing, smoke, and watch Eddie 
and Phyllis Sherman Barnes jitterbug. 
Remember the walk-around guessing 
game "Who am I?" (Classical Civ and 
Biblical scholars excelled). Lucy: "Pink 
slips to sign out overnight with 
approved plans. Curfews at 1 week- 
days, 1 1 Saturdays — on campus by 
dark if driving with a date. Chaperones 
everywhere, in NY they were waiting 
for you on the S' floor of the 
Biltmore. There was one place in 
Amherst where we could drink 3.2 
beer." Debbie Wood Davis: "The 
streamliner was the big deal from NYC 
to C'ville to SBC. Seems incredible 
now it would even stop for us. But 
there we were with our own station 
and special cars added for our big 
arrivals and departures. A roundtrip 
ticket to Washington was $10, break- 
fast: milk 10 cents, bran muffin 10 
cents, and tip 5 cents. A member of 
the class of '39 told me she was on the 
train one night when it stopped to let 
the Sweet Briar students otY; and the 
college car was not there to meet them 
so the engineer held this mainline train 
until joe appeared." Debbie, elected to 
the "honor" of Social committee 
Chairman had to bid goodnight to stu- 
dents and dates in the circle by Gray. 
She remembers "beautiful star-filled 
skies." Also "picnics with VMI and 
UVA boys. The Refectory provided 
food if we were not going to eat there, 
the boys provided beer. Singing was 
the entertainment." Hymns, step 
singing, mountain songs, glee club, 
choir and all purpose singing on tune 
and off in arcades and commons, 
buses, trains. There was also real 
music. The National Symphony in the 
gym with the county invited, and other 
concerts. Bambi, "the Trapp Family," 
Janet, "the concert with the Harvard 
Orchestra," the Duke Glee Club's great 
parting serenade in the circle. One of 
the best songs, "It's '42" burst upon its 
first audience in our Senior Show lust 
Looking Thanks, 12/6/41 . The Japanese 
were well on their way to Pearl 
Harbor. We have run out of space 
now, I'm sorry but it seemed best to 
divide your stories this way. WWII will 
be in the next issue in which our class 
appears. Thank you for your many 
interesting cards and letters, keep them 
coming. There is news that Toppin 
Wheal Crowell and Sally Waike 
Rogers have died, also Margie 
Troutman Harbin's husband. Dr. Tom 
Harbin, and Betty Brown Borden's 
Dick Borden. Vivi Walker 
Montgomery, in a retirement place in 
Memphis, sends greetings as does 
everyone.

What an exciting beginning for 



summer class notes to receive notice 
that our classmate Patty Traugott 
Rouse is the recipient of the 1999 
Distinguished .Alumna Award. The 
award will be presented on 9/24 at 
Founders Day with SBC's special brand 
of pomp and circumstance. Plus a pic- 
nic and a nostalgic walk to the monu- 
ment. We have already basked in the 
glow when classmate Peggy Sheffield 
Martin in 1990 and Ann Samford 
Upchurch in 1993 were cited each as 
Outstanding Alumnae. We are a ver\ 
distinguished and outstanding class 
thanks to these three honorees! 
Patty is still very busy at The 
Enterprise Foundation and planned 
trips across the land. She recounts the 
lovely 50th wedding anniversary cele- 
bration in Shepherdstown. WV given 
by Eleanor Polls Snodgrass and 
Stribling with Peggy Addington Twohy, 
Wayne Stokes Goodall, Closey 
Faulkner Dickey and Indie Lindsay 
Bilisoly helping celebrate. Indie has 
weathered knee replacement, hernia 
repair and back surgery but still man- 
aged to travel to Tuscany and the 
Bahamas! Closey reports they have 
had a new house built in Claremont, 
NH; the house was then carried on 7 
trucks to their newly acquired second 
home site on Mt. Desert Island. They 
have 6 acres on Quarry Cove with all 
water sports imaginable. She even car- 
ried propagated plants from their 
Lebanon, NH gardens to enhance the 
rocky coastline. For their 45th anniver- 
sary Closey and Whit did Snowmass 
with 6 kids, 5 spouses and 8 and 1/2 
grands. Pottsie and Strib discovered the 
best way to handle the January dol- 
drums was to spend almost a month 
visiting Australia and New Zealand. 
Audrey Lahman Rosselot has a new 
summer address from New London, 
NH. She's been on another SBC trip to 
Italy with her daughter Elizabeth. Patty 
lenney Nelson wrote from 
Peterborough, NH about seeing Molly 
Coulter Bowditch who was visiting her 
brother and his wife in River Meade 
where Patty lives. Ann Orr Savage 
summers in Pawlet, VT but reports see- 
ing Martha Garrison Anness and 
Chuck at Shell Point in Ft. Myers, FL. 
Martha Shmidheiser DuBarry has 
moved to Kendal at Longwood in 
Kennett Square, PA. Although she has 
had several medical problems she did 
sound upbeat. Judy Perkins Llewellyn 
summers in Avon, CT and winters at 
Kiawah, SC with recent trips to the 
Galapagos Islands, Peru, Cisco and 
Machu Pichu, and a planned fall trip 
to Spain and Portugal. Betsy Garrison 
Gorell survived the heat of a WV sum- 
mer by going to Iceland. Her family 
reunion is always held in 
Charlottesville. |udy Blakey Butler 
from York, PA describes working in her 
yard where she named 23 flowers and 
shrubs that have bloomed plus a resi- 
dent blue heron and monarch butter- 
flies that enhance her place. Then she 
tells of an emergency angioplasty and 
stent placement from which she recov- 
ered enough to make a 45 day trip to 
the So.Pacific and SE Asia. Then the 
Galapagos where she went snorkeling 
twice a day to observe sea lions, pen- 
guins and fish. 1 1 believe she has a 
GOOD doctor! I Around the DC area 
there is always news to report. Martha 
Mansfield Clement and her 80-year- 



old brother attended their annual fami- 
ly reunion in KY over the 4th. She is 
still settling into a new condo all on 
one floor in Alexandria. Nancy Vaughn 
Kelly and Dan are to be commended 
for establishing the Kelly Foundation, 
which works with Native American 
and other youth to encourage them to 
make something of their lives. From 
Covington. VA our favorite doctor Jane 
Luke joined Marjorie Smith Smithey 
and Margey Redfern ('47) in a leisure- 
l\ trip to The Patch and other VA 
attractions before she went to summer 
in Cotuit, MA. Smittie wrote that 
Hamilton had some heart problems so 
that Roanoke seems the best place to 
be. Vi Whitehead Morse and Walter 
celebrated their 50th anniversary with 
1 50 family and friends in attendance. 
Vi has concern over a son-in-law's seri- 
ous health problems diagnosed this 
summer. Our faithful correspondent 
Marguerite Rucker Ellett has a grand- 
daughter entering UVA and a 22 
month old grandchild for whom she 
babysits two days a week. She has 
heard from Helen McKemie Riddle 
who is still busy selling real estate in 
Wichita Falls, TX. From Chapel Hill 
Constance Conover writes of 6 grand- 
children, lots of friends, and another 
trip to London in |uly for the theater 
and to see a son who lives there. 
Vickie Brock Badrow had a 4th trip to 
Hawaii to a time-share they own plus 
trips to FL and to Europe. She contin- 
ues to volunteer in the library, Reach 
to Recovery, and Habitat. Suzanne 
Hardy Benson says she finally decided 
after taking a class in Aesthetics she 
"does not actually understand Kant 
and Hegel" as she thought she did 
years ago. Her daughter Zanne, facing 
some disk surgery, will have to use her 
dancing talents at being a teacher, bal- 
let mistress, and school administrator 
in Augusta's famed Ballet School. 
Daughter Bon is also in dance theater 
work. Cameron tutors math and read- 
ing and good manners. Jo Neal 
Peregrine and Morse have 4 sons pro- 
viding the Morse family (in a new 
home in Frankfort, Ml) with a wide 
range of grandchildren. Peggy 
Sheffield Martin's husband Tom had 
quintuple by-pass surgery in mid-June. 
We hope they are now cooling off in 
Highlands, NC. Ann Ricks Griffin 
arranged a mini-reunion in Atlanta 
with a lovely luncheon at an Emory 
Club with Peggy Martin, Felicia 
Jackson Burns, Martha Davis Barnes 
and your scribe eating and talking for 
several hours. Felicia was just up from 
major surgery and looked beautiful as 
ever. Nancy "T" Snider Martin drove 
from Columbus, GA to do Virginia 
Garden week and to visit her room- 
mate Wayne Stokes Goodall in 
Charlottesville. Ann Rowland Tuck 
from Nashville traveled with the 
National Trust on a Celtic Cruise 
around the British Isles, Hebrides, with 
stops in Dublin, Cornwall, Wales and 
Edinburgh. Helen "Twink" Elliott 
Sockwell and Warren celebrated their 
50th with a large garden party, similar 
to the original many years ago. A foot- 
note to this: Twink's anniversary gift, a 
gold Cadillac, was totaled when a 
driver did not see her turn signal going 
into her driveway. Now she has to 
"make do" with another one — only it's 
beige! Phil Thorpe Miller and John 



took their 3 children and spouses to 
London to celebrate their 50th anniver- 
sary. Now she is settling down to quiet 
time of baby sitting, book clubbing 
and frequently seeing Nancy Moses 
Eubank. Both friends write of their 
appreciation of their Sweet Briar days. 
"Mo" has a grandchild who's a sopho- 
more at U of Arkansas and one who is 
8 years old. Eve Godchaux Hirsch 
hopes that many Briarites will visit the 
Museum in New Orleans to see the 
fabulous art of Degas, which was 
painted on a visit there in 1 872. Ruthie 
Faulkner Howe from Larchmont, CO 
has a grandchild finishing freshman 
year at Colorado U. and another born 
this June. Ruthie has also had time to 
"tip toe through the tulips" at 
Keukenhof Gardens in Holland. Maybe 
the members of 1948 should watch the 
national news more closely since Polly 
Rollins Sowell writes such excited and 
bold-faced words about her boss in 
Austin, TX — George W. Bush! Avery 
Draughon Helm's delightful note from 
Tempe, AZ says "my eyes are fading 
and my joints are stiff', but there is still 
a bit of mischief in my spirit" as she 
adds that she lives vicariously in 
Monica and Kathy Lee". We have 3 
CA correspondents: Peggy Pierce 
McAvity lives in Palo Alto near a 
daughter, yet gets back to CT often- 
especially for Indian summer She visits 
ten grands. Dolly Antrim McKenna 
from Yorba Linda says the)' have not 
traveled so much since Jim has had 
some heart problems. A grandson grad- 
uated from Bates College in Maine and 
they too have celebrated 50 years of 
marriage. Jane Miller Wright says they 
are doing "great for the shape we're 
in," as she and Howard go back and 
forth from their home in Bend, OR to 
their boat in Catalina. Speaking for our 
class we send our deepest sympathy to 
Jenny Belle Bechtel Whyte on the 
death of her husband William 
Hollinsworth Whyte earlier this year. 
He was a distinguished writer with 
deep concerns tor the environment. 
The New York Times and the Wall 
Street journal noted his passing. We 
also extend our sympathy to the family 
of classmate Joyce Raley De Bergh 
whose death occurred at the beginning 
of summer. Her married name was 
Mrs. John De Bergh and the address 
was Route 1, Box 135, Washington, 
VA 22747 according to our records. 

Your cards have been fun to read, 
summarize and condense. I wrote 
most of this in the Nantahala National 
Forest sitting by our tent while my fam- 
ily went hiking up a cold mountain 
stream. David and 1 are going to take 
the big trip to China for 3 weeks in 
Oct. to visit a niece and husband, both 
of whom are seoi-ing in the LIS 
Embassy in Beijing. David's 83 old sis- 
ter will travel with us to visit her 
daughter in China. Cheers!

lelt sympathy to Sue Taylor Lilley who 
lost her husband Bob and her sister at 
the same time. 

Our illustrious Class President 
Annie Moo Gamble is now Mrs. 
George Blechta. In Chicago a highlight 
was the visit of President Muhlenfeld 
and her husband Laurin Wollan. We 
were thrilled to meet them and feel 
confident that Sweet Briar is in the 
very best of hands! Carolyn Sample 
Abshire: David moved to the Board of 
Trustees at CSIS and is President of the 
Center for the Study of the Presidency. 
This saves him from being "retired" 
(heaven forbid). Four of our 5 children 
are in the Washington area. (The other 
is in Roslyn, Washington.) We're mov- 
ing towards our 7th grandchild — and 
they certainly keep us agile. Ann 
Mountcastle Gamble Blechta: On 
4/24/99, I married George Blechta. You 
may remember he arrived at Reunion 
«45 and Sir Galahad rescued Barbie 
Birt, (vlary Pease and Ann Taylor and 
me when Barbie's car broke down — 
and drove us back to Richmond. Patty 
Carlin Friese and Dick came to the big 
family wedding in Sarasota. We're 
planning a mini reunion/planning in 
Washington, DC in October — Anne 
Sinsheimer and I. Jean Randolph Bruns 
said that Ruth's life was not easy — "I've 
talked/had calls from Julie and Patty. 
They were wonderful to her, and we 
had some great get-togethers. I've just 
read Harper's Shakespeare feature — 
I'm definitely an Oxfordian and the 
Bible is a fascinating development. I'll 
get out a letter soon to third floor class- 
mates about coming here for a few 
days, en route to 2t)01 Reunion." Mary 
Bullington (WISEY PARROTT'S 
DAUGHTER): My mother, Mary Wise 
Parrott Bullington (Wisey) died 5/7/98. 
She leaves 5 children and 8 grandchil- 
dren, most of whom had the good for- 
tune to know and love her. Janet 
Broman Dingle: "We anticipate a Sept. 
trip to Scotland, a couple of days in 
Dublin and four days in London where 
Larry's son and family now live. We'll 
be traveling with my sister loan (S.B. 
'56) and husband |im Wright. 
Meanwhile I'll visit one daughter and 
family in TX and the other daughter 
and family come here in August. We'll 
spend Jan. — Mar. in FL again. Julie 
Micou Eastwood: "I just returned from 
a celebration of Ruth that was most 
impressive. There must have been over 
1 50 people, but everyone was of the 
same mind, she was a warm, caring, 
generous and forgiving person. There 
was much poetry and memories and 
love. Mark gave a very moving talk 
about his mother...! spoke of traveling 
to Europe with her after graduation 
and of her keeping in touch with so 
many college classmates as well as 
orchestrating the West Coast reunions 
and I said she would continue to be a 
part of them. Janet Johnston's (fresh- 
man year only) daughter Lynn, whom 
Ruth took in on the Vallejo when she 
needed a home, came up with her 
husband to speak to me. Ruth did 
touch so many differeni lives! Mary 
Jane Eriksen Ertman: All our children 
and their families are coming to visit 
this summer — Anne and Martha from 
Denver and Eric and Andy from 
Washington. Susie lives nearby with 
her family, which includes baby 
Calvin, born on 4/29/99. Besides Cal, 



we have 3 granddaughters and 4 little 
grandsons. To celebrate the millenni- 
um, we just sent our 1901 piano away 
for complete restoration! Mary Pease 
Fleming, I've heard so many com- 
ments about the dropping of class 
notes. Hope you don't gel discour- 
aged — it is fun to read about our old 
buddies! Barbara Birt Dow and her 
husband Bill joined Rives and me at 
Tides Lodge for a golfing weekend. 
Fun — except that Barbara is still just 
too beautiful. Ann Sheldon Taylor 
went to London to visit her grandchil- 
dren. I had a letter from Sue Taylor 
Lilley with copies of articles about her 
dear, late husband. She has had such a 
jolt — her sister's death, then Bob's. 
When I talk to her on the phone, she 
seems to be carrying on. Sue had been 
involved in her job for some years, but 
before she sent me the enclosed arti- 
cle, I didn't realize how involved! 
Patricia Lynas Ford: We had a 3 -week 
trip in Oct. from Biarritz to Nice. Our 
good friend from England met us there 
for the last week. In March we flew to 
England to visit friends via 
Washington, DC where we stayed with 
our daughter and her two children. 
She lives in Herndon and works in 
Weston for TRW. We also met her 
fiancee so that was a happy time. Our 
other daughter is doing calligraphy and 
has her own website, which brings in 
business from all over the country. I'm 
still training dogs several days a week 
at the Healdsburg Animal Shelter The 
big low was Ruth's death. Julie and I 
did what we could but finally her ill- 
ness was too much for her and she let 
go. She was her good humored and 
lucid self until the end. The day before 
she died she sent her caregivers from 
the hospital a poem she had written, in 
her inimitable and elegant style. 

Joanne Williams Eraser:! am sad- 
dened to report the sudden death of 
Ada French McWane. She had cancer 
and didn't know it and died one week 
after diagnosis. The Erasers are looking 
forward to France in Sept. where we 
will be staying with friends in their 
converted old mill home. Otherwise 
we continue to have Adirondak living 
in the summer. I spend a lot of time 
gardening. Caria DeCreny Freed: 
Getting ready to head back to 
Nantucket with a stop in Italy on the 
way! Really looking forward to the 
Sweet Briar trip at the end of June and 
then I'll be on Nantucket till mid- 
October and hope you'll come see me. 
Hope all will call. Saw Doris Brody 
Rosen last month — she's wonderful. 
On Nantucket (5081 228-762 I. 
Suzanne Lockley Glad: Heading north 
for the summer at our home at Black 
Butte Ranch (in OR) where my hus- 
band's family will join us for a first 
ever family reunion — 51 people 
expected. Took an interesting cruise 
from Buenos Aires to Manaos, Brazil, 
including 1,000 miles of Amazon 
scenery. On the West Coast we will 
miss Ruth (Clarkson's) wit and energy. 
She planned a couple of SBC West 
Coast reunions. She was also my chil- 
dren's "Auntie Mame" and we all have 
tales of life on the ferryboat in 
Sausalito! What a loss! Love. Lynn 
McCullough Gush: I'm teaching and 
"recitalizing" a lot. Ballet classes con- 
tinue with a younger group. The 
youngest is 1/3 my age! The two large 



dogs and Gerry are well and happy. 
Endless walkies and practicing keep 
me likewise. I was sad to hear about 
our loss of Ruth Costello. Her son 
Mark probably needs more mail. I 
have the address if someone should 
like to contact him. Angle Vaughan 
Halliday: Bob and I are fine — 5 grand- 
sons, 5 children also. We just returned 
from ME — Monhegan Island — where 
Bob painted and I read and meditated. 
Then back to reality. Bob continues to 
grow as a painter, and we are pleased 
that he is having some nice reviews 
and exhibitions. He has a work includ- 
ed in a new book on landscape 
painters. Susan Ostrander Hood: We 
had a record number of house guests 
this summer including son David, a 
lawyer and County Board member in 
SC, and his family; son Lloyd from 
New Zealand and daughter Julie and 
her family from Seattle on their way 
back to MD where her husband is an 
active duty Navy Commander. An 
important birthday celebration was 
spent with daughter Sally, a nurse, and 
her family in Door County. Husband 
Lloyd is still into estate planning, and 
we both are on the Mission Committee 
of the Lake Forest Presbyterian Church. 
Ruth Oddy Meyer: Just returned from a 
cruise from Normandy to Edinburgh, 
Scotland. Otherwise, it's still hospital 
volunteering, 4 granddaughters, much 
gardening and watercolor — acrylic 
painting lessons. Ruth Magee Petersen: 
I took all the kids and grandkids to 
Walt Disney World for a mini family 
reunion. Had to reschedule a bit when 
I discovered a new grandchild is due 
mid-October. Also planning a photo 
"safari" late Fall in the Colorado Mts. 
(Ouray) with the zoo photographer. 
Every little bit of R&R helps! Terry 
Faulkner Phillips: lust returned from a 
visit to my son in San Francisco. 
Charley and Gwyn are great parents to 
my one and only grandchild. Sophia, 
age 2, is a delight. We took the 3 dogs 
to the parks and the beach to romp. 
Margaret Seaman Pinkos: Not one 
darned new thing to write on this card 
unless 2 kittens count. I'd better put 
down my knitting and go find a class 
to take. At a seminar recently I learned 
that the 3 best activities tested so far to 
hold off Alzheimer's are knitting, travel 
and gardening. Maybe I'll take my 
knitting to class! Anne Sinsheimer: 
When I went up to Berkeley for my 
grandniece's graduation, I had a great 
visit with Julie Micou Eastwood. I'm 
off for Switzerland and a walkmg tour 
in the Bernese Oberland. I have two 
nights in Paris on my way home. Am 
still busy with working part time and 
volunteering. In October we are hav- 
ing a 50'" Reunion planning session in 
the DC area. I'm using Julie's words 
when I say let's re-connect with the 
"women we have become." Ann 
Sheldon Taylor: We have a new Henry 
Taylor who arrived 5/5/99 and is living 
in Columbia, SC with his parents! That 
makes a boy and a girl for each son (4 
grands) and we think we're done.

then again they would not fly during 
the last week of '99 through the first 
week of '00. She and Bob went to

cal year and joined the Garden Club in 
Warrenton and is planning to accom- 
pany a Friends of Art group to Paris in

Jane Campbell Englert's husband had a 
quadruple bypass just after Easter and

He is doing OK but it will be a long

their wonderful new house on Block

and grandchildren are all well. I talked 
to Suzy Neblett Stevens who cornered 
my nephew at the UVa Reunion in the 
St. A house. It must have been fun as I 
also heard about it from said nephew. 
Bob Lee is doing fine after a heart 
attack in 1 998. My big news is that my 
daughter Sallie Vest is marr\ing an 
Egyptian sometime in the New Year. 
She has been in that part of the world 
since 1/96 and has known him since 
then. She has his family's blessing, 
now he has to get mine in Oct. I 
believe. This will be an ongoing saga. 
Addendum: It is with great sadness

Dole Wood, husband of Diane 
Duffield Wood, died suddenly on

How quickly the year since our 
reunion has passed by. I have finally 
compiled a list of all our classmates' e- 
mail lists, and sent it to all who are 
wired. If your address has changed, or 
you have recently come on line, please 
contact me at kath@fascination.com, 
and I will add you to the list or send 
the list to you as needed. My thanks to 
those who wrote, some of whom we 
haven't heard from in a while. Betsy 
Beale, for instance, sells real estate and 
lives in the Richmond area, as always 
with a large menagerie. Call, visit or

send clients, she says. I left my newspa- 
per job after 1 2 years and am now 
working as a free-lance writer. |ohn and 
I spent a month in Mexico volunteering 
in a project that helps poor Indian 
women learn a trade and get on their 
feet economically. I tutored school age 
children and helped care for the 
adorable toddlers during one week, 
lohn and I will celebrate our 30th 
anniversary with a 5-day backpacking 
trip in Yellowstone. Our older son is 
teaching English at a Univ. in Mexico, 
joining the tnrong of classmates' chil- 
dren seeking adventure and opportuni- 
ty abroad. Ann Clute Obenshain's 
daughter Lisa, 25, completed her mas- 
ters in marine aftairs and has joined the 
Peace Corps. Meg, 23, graduated from 
Skidmore and teaches business English 
in Paris. Ann now has 2 great reasons 
to travel and get a break from her gar- 
dening "on too large a scale" in KY. I 
don't imply that it's only our oftspring 
who travel. Laura Lee Brown had a 
photo safari to Central Asia, with out- 
standing photo stops in 5 countries. 
Carol Crowley Karm is a self-admitted 
"traveling fool " since her husband 
retired in |une, with back-to-back trips 
to Europe and the Northwest. Carol 
works for a custom knitwear co. called 
French Rags, and is also preparing for 
her first art show in the spring. Her 2 
daughters are married, and 3rd and 4th 
grandchildren were expected at press 
time. Her son remains a bachelor. 
Kathy Caldwell Patten and her hus- 
band took a trip to Turkey with three 
Cornell professors. Kathy travels a lot, 
in part to see daughter Kathleen who 
works in investments in New York, and 
son Bryan, an economic advisor in San 
Francisco. Daughter Sarah is closer, 
teaching English at Baylor School in 
Chattanooga. Valerie Elbrlck Hanlon is 
deep into Russian language study after 
a trip to St. Petersburg. She was also in 
Paris for a week in the spring. She con- 
tinues to publish in local magazines, 
writing about musicians in Washington, 
and still at work on a larger project on 
the history' of farming surrounding her 
village home in upstate NY. She's still 
involved in a music education program 
in DC schools. Allie Stemmons Simons 
mother died last summer and Allie 
spends a lot of time managing her 
invalid father's care, having cut back 
her travel business to have more time. 
She still hits the road, not surprisingly 
and has had frequent visits with Lisa 
Wood Hancock. SBC Pres. Muhlenfeld 
was a recent guest in Allie's Dallas 
home. Kathryn Pixley retired after 27 
years teaching in Amherst Co. schools. 
She remains organist at her church and 
enjoys living near her 3 sons and their 
families, including a year-old grandson 
Christopher. Nancy Dixon Brown also 
retired as a special ed. teacher in 
Atlanta. Fortunately she gives no indi- 
cation she will retire from her devotion 
to SBC Class of'63. She saw Julie 
Arnold Morey and husband Russ on a 
visit from New York in Feb. Also retir- 
ing is Doris Chu, from government 
service. She lives in Englewood, N|, 
and has produced two dozen CDs, 
tapes and records and garnered a num- 
ber of Grammy nominations. She com- 
pleted two masters' degrees, in psy- 
chology and communications. She's 
involved in several book projects and 
plans to teach. Not quite retired is Keitt 



Matheson Wood's husband Frank, from 
his orthopedic practice in Dallas. They 
are returning to Frank's hometown of 
Louisville, where he'll continue to 
practice, but non-surgically. They'll be 
midway between son Cordon and 
grandson Graham in Ks. City, and 
daughter Helen in Atlanta. But while 
some are retiring others are embracing 
new jobs and responsibilities. Ann 
Knickerbocker McCulloch has a new 
part-time job as Missions Director at 
Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church 
in Houston. She enjoys her avo grand- 
daughters, Allison white and Katie 
McCulloch. She and Bill took all chil- 
dren and grandchildren on a vacation 
at the Cloister. Pat Calkins Wilder has a 
new business "Light Images" which she 
says is "perking right along." She tries 
to work Seattle into her travel to see 
her oldest son Chris, his wife Rayne 
and their infant son. Son Alan lives 
nearby and Kelley is a Ph.D. candidate 
at Oxford, still running competitively. 
Husband Mike still works, but not too 
much when the weather in Rochester is 
right for golf. Jean Meyer Aloe has a 
new job as assistant to president of a 
company that designs satellite commu- 
nications equipment for the big users. 
Her older daughter is halfway through 
a doctorate in clinical psych, at Geo. 
Wash. U. Another daughter, a senior at 
U Penn, was to be married in June. 
Jean and her husband recently sailed 
around the Greek islands, and were 
headed for HI. Sallie Yon Williams 
describes the fairytale wedding in 
Tuscany of older son Whitridge, last 
Thanksgiving with sunshine and no 
tourists. But that happy event was fol- 
lowed by the death of her brother. Her 
younger son Courtney lives in 
Singapore and works for Nickelodeon. 
Chris Devol writes from "infamous 
Littleton," CO, from whose Columbine 
H.S. both her children graduated years 
ago. Chris and Gary are celebrating 
their 35th anniversary, her parent's 
60th, and her 40th H.S. graduation. 
Her "grand twins" are nearly 8 and live 
in St. Louis. Son Bill passed the CA Bar 
and is an entertainment attorney in 
Hollywood. Betsy Parker McColl and 
Jim's daughter Eliza graduated from 
UNC with "the usual mix of happiness 
and nostalgia." She will job hunt in 
Charlotte. Betsy admits to having a 
"good tennis season," which probably 
means she has won a national or inter- 
national title. On the fundraising cir- 
cuit, Karen Gill Meyer raised $2.35 
million for a neurological institute in 
Phoenix. She and her husband |im 
divide their time between their 
Salomon Smith Barney work in 
Scottsdale and their home in 
Coronado, CA. Betty Stanly Gates 
enjoyed hosting SBC Prof. Barbara 
Perry who spoke at the Vero Beach 
Humanities Lecture series on 
"Presidential Images in the Kennedy 
and Clinton Eras." Betsy regularly sees 
Meta McGavney on trips to 
Jacksonville, and also sees the Atlanta 
crowd en route to SBC for Board of 
Directors meetings. Lea Osborne 
Angell finally packed her youngest off 
to college, at HobartA/Vm. Smith, while 
two of her older children are getting 
into grad programs, her daughter to 
Harvard for MA in Am. Lit, and son to 
Fordham for an MBA. They are thrilled 
that son Jake is engaged. Jane 



Goodridge appears to have washed 
ashore for a change, having purchased 
a "tiny house in the historic district of 
Charleston, SC," which she is decorat- 
ing and landscaping. She enjoyed some 
time on the West Coast last summer 
with McNair Currie Maxwell. In the 
"significant life transitions" department, 
Lyn Clark Pegg reports her mother's 
death and the marriage of their son to a 
"wondert'ul Colombian woman." Lvn's 
doctoral dissertation was published as a 
chapter in the book The Diversity 
Promise: Unfinished Business. I am so 
happy to report that Marta Sweet 
Colangelo is feeling great following her 
bout with breast cancer 2 years ago. 
She works for Young Audiences of 
Houston, a non-profit arts-in-education 
organization. Her older children are 
married and her 20-year-old just 
moved out. Nancy McDowell was 
preparing for surgery on a benign brain 
tumor in mid-june. We'll anxiously 
await further news and pray for an aus- 
picious outcome. She has 3 grandchil- 
dren and was expecting a 4th in June.

I think there were only 20 of us at 
Reunion, but we had a great time. We 
missed the rest of you and hope to see 
many more of you in 2004. Joan 
Adriance Mickelson (Athens, OH I 
regretted missing Reunion but had to 
prepare for daughter Kelly's magna 
cum /aude graduation from Denison 
U. Sara (24) is coordinator of an after- 
school enrichment program in Athens 
and Christopher (16) is a H.S. junior. 
Joan has spent several years spear- 
heading a project to build 4 tennis 
courts at Athens H.S. Liz Beach Baker 
(Cermantown, TN) missed Reunion for 
her son's graduation from Memphis 
Univ. School. He planned to enter 
Centre Coll. in KY. Her second daugh- 



ter graduated from SMU and is in grad 
school in Memphis, and her elder mar- 
ried daughter lives in Chevy Chase, 
MD. Liz enjoys their vacation cottage 
in ME and is decorating the house that 
she and her husband are building. 
Ecstatic to be back east again, Mary 
Lee Bell Coffey (New York, NY) is 
doing volunteer work, gorging on the- 
ater, music, and art galleries, mastering 
her new computer, and shuffling 
between Manhattan and McLean, VA 
where Shelby and she have built a 
house. Shelby is enjoying his new job 
as Executive V.P. of ABC News. Alison 
(28) is in D.C. and Chades (25) is in 
LA. Kathy BIythe Southerland

their 30th anniversary' on Cape Cod 
8/1 . She loves her job as a representa- 
tive with Portrait Brokers of America: 
nice clients, beautiful product, flexible 
hours, and several other SBCers in the 
company. Her move to NC has not 
worked out ("in retrospect ... a very, 
verv expensive mid-life crisis") so 
Martha Brewer (Webster, NC) plans to 
move back to New Orleans. She had 
several recent good job interviews. 
Hattie Coons Babbitt iWashington, 
D.C.I is the Acting Administrator of 
USAID, the Agency for International 
Development, and Bruce is still 
Secretary of the Interior. Their son 
Chris planned to start at Harvard Law 
School and son Tj graduates this win- 
ter from Stanford. I think Diane 
DeLong Fitzpatrick (Atlanta, CA) has a 
daughter who was a nationally ranked 
swimmer. Perhaps that has something 
to do with Diane's plan to attend the 
2000 Olympics in Sydney with hus- 
band lohn. Giana dePaul (Dallas, TX) 
counts in her household her spry 
mother (94!), her mother's Scottie, and 
Giana's mutt. After 30 years of running 
John Haynsworth Photography she is 
known to the much younger employ- 
ees as The Queen Mum, She also has 
an antiques booth in Dallas and is 
involved with an interesting new com- 
pany called Big Planet. Giana enjoys 
gardening, rollerblading, bike riding, 
mushroom hunting, and dieting (real- 
ly^). Barbara Duffield Erskine 
(Downingtown, PA) moved back to the 
US from Canada since husband David 
found a new job in Philadelphia. Ali 
has graduated from Yale, Andrew from 
Salisbury School (going to Franklin and

her summers since childhood, Phyllis 
Girard (Oreland, PAl wrote that she is 
still teaching gifted students at Bristol 
H.S. She planned to celebrate the year 
2000 with a Christmas trip to London. 
Annie Green Gilbert (Seattle, WAl had 
to miss our 30th because that was the 
weekend of her big Kaleidoscope 
Dance Concert. She was going to 
"have to" go to David's 30th at 
Princeton, however, because daughter 
Bronwen was also graduating! After 
daughter Marshall's graduation from 
UVA, Cathy Hall Stopher (Louisville, 
KY), husband Ed, Marshall, and

chauffeurs, volunteers at school, and 
reads whenever possible. I'm still in 
Houston for now — the very difficult 
death of my ex in Atlanta last Sept. 
from liver cancer made me really 
think, and Stan and I decided to pur- 
sue our dream of buying retirement 
property on the coast. We found 6 
acres full of pecan trees on the San 
Bernard River (south of Houston i 5 
miles from the Gulf, and are now

Mandy moved to Shelby, NC where 
Charlie has begun MBA studies and 
Mandy coaches women's basketball at 
Gardener Webb. Will (20) is at 
Vanderbill, and loves crew — will live 
with 9 teammates next yr. He spent the 
summer at Camp Sea Cull sailing big 
sailboats all day! I think that helped 
heal his soul. All of us were in 
Knoxville last Feb. where my brother, 
Charles G. vonRosenberg, was conse- 
crated and installed as Bishop 
(Episcopal) of East TN. It's a privilege

Retirement Community 

Sweet Briar hired a consultant, MDS 
Research Company, Inc., to conduct a 
feasibility study for locating a retire- 
ment community' on campus. MDS 
evaluated the population within a 15- 
mile radius, as traditionally 60-70 % 
of residents come from the immediate 
area. Also, SBC alumnae were sur- 
veyed for their response. 

The report from MDS suggests that a 
market exists for a community of 84- 
109 units. However, given the high 
investment required, comparatively 
low rate of return predicted, and high 
risk associated with such a venture, 
the Board of Director's Investments, 
Finance and Audit Committee voted 
not to pursue it. 

Many thanks to the alumnae who 
participated in the survey. Your input 
was invaluable.

ing 6 of us including me within the 
immediate family who have gone 
there and are still living! We are so

members, and if we come close to 
having the most. 

We are: Beverly Hill Furniss 35

Quite a shock 

Thanks for the note about Miss 
Kent — quite a shock... She was a 
superb advisor and teacher, and an 
impressive scholar. How well I 
remember my interview for Crad 
School at U Maryland, where both 
the department director and my 
future advisor asked condescendingly 
if 1 was satisfied with the education I 
had gotten at Sweet Briar. I was 
delighted to take the wind out of the 
sails of my advisor. ..by telling him 
that I already had a head start in legal 
and criminal history because I had 
worked under Dr. Joan Kent— and a 
big fat Bronx cheer was mentally fol- 
lowing my statement: Ha! So there! 

...When I was taking my comprehen- 
sive exam in '82, I was... a nervous 
wreck. I had memorized what 1 want- 
ed to say on the 3 questions I knew 
best, and was praying all 3 would be 
on the exam. ..I was at least outward- 
ly calm when 1 went into the exam 
room, but I could see that my fellow 
history majors were equally "calm." 
We sat in tense silence (not a normal 
state... for SB women l for about 5 
minutes, and in came Dr. Kent, 
loaded down with 2 grocery bags full 
of chips, cookies, sodas, and, quite 
incidentally you understand, the 
exam papers. I don't remember her 
saying anything other than "Relax!", 
but that was quite enough. The first 
half hour of the exam was punctuat- 



ed by lots of crunching and the 
"pfsssst" of opening soda cans, and 
we were all eternally grateful...! 
believe we all passed the exam. ..and 
those of us... working directly with 
Miss Kent knew whom we had to 
thank. I have other memories of her 
generosity, humor, and tough stan- 
dards, but the grin she gave that 
room of wilting women will always 
be one of my cherished memories, as 
I hope my grin during exams is for 
my students now. I'm sorry I won't be 
there for the memorial service — a 
truly great woman needs to be recog- 
nized by all those she touched. 

— Cracie Tredwell Schild '82 

A Prospective Student to Margaret 
Blount, Director of Admissions: 

I attended the open house 
Sunday and Monday and it was 
great. This was my 4th visit to 
Sweet Briar... it had to l^e the 
best. I had already intended to 
apply Early Decision after my 
2nd visit; this past open house 
really let me know that Sweet 
Briar is the place for me. I was 
amazed with the professors. ..In 
every class I attended, the pro- 
fessor made a great effort to 
integrate me into the lesson and 
the atmosphere. They all want- 
ed to know about me as an 
individual...! believe that the 
professors... are among |SBC's| 
greatest assets. The students 
were fabulous. They all treated 
me like I was one of them. ..The 
whole experience was incredi- 
ble. I enjoyed having lunch 
with you. ..It is nice to know 
another face at Sweet Briar. I 
like knowing that I am a face 
and not a number. 

What strengthens our ties and feeds 
our interests 

Please do not limit the Class 
Notes section in favor of any 
other feature of the magazine. 
Cutting the publication to 3 
times a year now means that it 
is over a year from the time 
someone may send in news to 
when it is read. ..better to cut 
the quality of the paper, the 
photographs, the fund reports 
(nobody gives in order to see 
their name in print — or they 
shouldn't) and send out Class 
Notes more fully, more often. 
That is what strengthens our ties 



and feeds our interest more 

than anything else.

Career Fair during 

Alumnae Council '99 a success! 

I really enjoyed the Career Fair 
at SBC. It was so much fun to 
talk to the students and learn 
something from them as well as 
answer questions that they 
might have about my career. 
SBC is certainly an exciting, 
stimulating campus today and I 
look forward to returning soon. 
— Jane Hutcherson Frierson '74 

Dismayed 

1 was dismayed to read in the 
Summer/Fall 99 issue of the 
Alumnae Magazine that issues 
of Martha Stewart Living maga- 
zine are "most desperately 
needed" by the library. I'd pre- 
fer to think that librarians — and 
students — at Sweet Briar are 
spending their reading hours 
immersed in something — 
almost anything!! — other than 
Ms. Stewart. Is she amusing, 
entertaining, creative in home 
arts, attractive? Yes. Are her 
skills, ideas and techniques des- 
perately needed by generations 
of SBC students? Nope! 
This grand interest in Martha 
Stewart, I trust, does not indi- 
cate any strong preference for 
her as a candidate for one of 
the college's first honorary 
degrees. To paraphrase Wm 
Shakespeare, dear editor, get 
thee to thy hot glue gun, go — 
and toss it deep into the lake. 
— Carol Barnard Ottenberg '60 

Thanks! to the Art Department 
Loren Oliver was one of my 
teachers, as were Aileen Laing 
and Susan Bandes: Dear friends 
and colleagues. In the last 10 
days I've had two 
thrilling. ..experiences. I want to 
THANK YOU for your contribu- 
tions to both. You've offered 
considerable moral support — 
frequently by listening — to the 
trials. ..I've experienced as I 
grow a successful business. 
#1:1 saw the brand/logo I 
developed for my 1st client (4 
years ago) on a billboard on 
Van Ness Street last week. X2: I 
attended an opening for a 
building in San Francisco. ..and 



the most recent brand/logo I 
designed is on the front doors 
as well as in other locations 
inside (Avalon Towers). I went 
to the opening expecting not to 
see it at all... work is sometimes 
designed and paid for, only not 
used. There was something 
unbelievably groovy about see- 
ing something I'd drawn, in 
large scale, and in a public 
place. I wish you could've been 
there at the opening so that I 
could have shared the moment 
with you — and expressed my 
appreciation to you in person! 
With warm regards from 
Quinne (and the famous cats: 
Tyrone and Miss Tiggy) 
— Quinne Pokes '81 

Thinking it over... 

The magazine is a great prod- 
uct. It's overwhelming to realize 
how many alumnae we have 
now. I'm so impressed with 
what our graduates do these 
days. 

But. ..on thinking it over I found 
in the old Class of 1934 a head 
of Time's London office during 
the war, a time-and-motion 
engineer, a judge, the archivist 
who broke the first news about 
Nixon (Mary McCrory had a 
whole column about her), a 
decoder who had an equivalent 
rank of major in the army, a 
teacher of blind children in ski- 
ing and horseback riding, sever- 
al professors, an officer of the 
American Book Co., not to 
mention secretary of the 
Alumnae Association of Sweet 
Briar College, and one of its 
development officers. And, as 
they say, much much more. 
Goodness! One does get remi- 
niscent at our age. 
— Warmest regards, Martha Lou 
Lemmon Stohlman '34

Report of the Vice President for 
Finance and Administration 



By Mary Lou Merkt 

Since arriving at Sweet Briar 
in December of 1996, 1 have 
been impressed by the College's 
financial stability and the carefiil 
manner in which its assets are 
managed. Following are some 
highlights of the 1998-99 fiscal 
year. 

Endowment 

Sweet Briar's endowment is 
its greatest financial asset. 
Standing at $125,640,320 as of 
June 30, 1999, it is the second 
largest endowment per student 
among a group ot peer institu- 
tions with whom the College's 
finances are compared (Mount 
Holvoke, Goucher, Randolph- 
Macon Woman's College, 
Hollins, Agnes Scott, Hampden- 
Sydney, Randolph Macon- 
Ashland, and WeUs CoUege). 
The Investments, Finance and 
Audit Committee of the Board 
of Directors carefiiUy monitors 
the flind to ensure its continued 
growth. For 1999, the remrn on 
the College's investment was 
11.3%, net of fees. Table A 
highlights the impressive returns 
for the past five years. The cur- 
rent investment policy subscribes 
to fifty' percent of the funds to be 
invested in U.S. large company 
stocks, ten percent in U.S. small 
company stocks, ten percent in 
international stocks and thirt\- 
percent in frxed income instru- 
ments. 

Alumnae giving has con- 
tributed significandy to the 
growth of the endowment and to 
the College's operating budget. 
During fiscal year 1999, alumnae 
contributed $431,351 to the 
endowment and $1.7 million 
toward the operating budget ot 
the College. Although the 
endowment has grown dramati- 
cally in recent years, it must 



continue to mcrease to ensure a 
sound financial future for the 
College. 

Tuition 

Because of the size ot the 
College's endowment, tuition 
increases at Sweet Briar have 
been kept to a minimum for the 
past four ye;u-s (Table B). Sweet 
Briar's tuition, room and board 
rank fourth among its peer group, 
behind Mount Holyoke, 
Goucher, and Randolph-Macon 
Woman's College. 

Operating Budget 

The CoUege's 1998-99 oper- 
ating budget is shovm in Table C. 
As }'ou will see, tuition, sales, and 
services of the aiLxUiary enterpris- 
es (primarily room and board), 
and endowment income make up 
the majoriu' of total revenue. 
Expenses are shown by category, 
the largest of which is instruction 
(facult)' salaries), representing 
twenty-one percent of total 
expenses, followed by scholar- 
ships (19%), and expenses associ- 
ated with aiLxiliary enterprises 
(16%). 

Despite a large, well- 
performing endowment. Sweet 
Briar's financial needs continue to 
increase. For this reason, alum- 
nae support wiU be even more 
critical in the fiimre. As noted, 
fmancial aid represents one ot the 
College's largest expenses. The 
increasing need for sizeable 
scholarships is driven by fierce 
competition. Salaries constandy 
require readjustment to enable 
the College to attract and retain 
the best and brightest faculty and 
statf. Sweet Briar's beautrftil his- 
toric buildings are expensive to 
maintain and although renova- 
tions are ongoing, a significant 
amount of deferred maintenance 
continues to accrue. 

Nevertheless, the alumnae can

Foreword 

It is a pleasure and a privilege to put my name to the results of our 
efforts to support Sweet Briar College in the 1998-1999 fiscal year 
This effort was carried out by volunteers and staff headed by my prede- 
cessor, thus the spotlight of recognition should rightfully shine on them. 

Once again, we beat our projections by a good margin, for a total of 
$4,591, 6 75 in gifts to the College. We are deeply grateful for the gifts 
to the Annual Fund by our alumnae, parents, and friends. These 
gifts are put to immediate use to benefit students as scholarships, fac- 
ulty support, and other current projects. Our receipts for the Annual 
Fund approached nearly $1.9 million, marking another record- 
setting year ($1,872,503 represents an inc?-ease of $70,000 over last 
year). 

The growing success oj our Boxwood Circle Program is helping these 
results. The Parents Program also has benefited from the energetic 
effort of its steering co?7imittee volunteers. Through the loyalty, dedi- 
cation, and enthusiastic support of our volunteer leaders and every 
donor listed on the following pages, we can continue to assist Sweet 
Briar in providing an excellent and distinct educational experience. 

As I begin my tenure at this extraordinary college, I am heartened by 
the intense commitment of each and every one of you. Kudos to you, 
and may we have an even better year in 2000!

Professor Katherine Macdonald: 

The Nenah Elinor Fry Endowed Pre.sidential Scholarship Eund 




^uherinc Macdonald, Professor Emerita, taught in the Physical Education 
Department at Sweet Briar tor 35 years. After her retirement in 1983, she 
remained on campus tor several years and redirected her boundless energy 
to ser\'e the communit)' in many ways. 

Among her activities, Kay taught aerobics classes, ser\'ed as secretary of both the 
Humane Society and Friends of the Amherst County Librarv, and participated in 
the College's development efforts. A self-described "girl scout," Kay was the first to 
offer assistance when her friends Chaplain Susan Lehman and her husband, John 
DalzeU, renovated their vacation house in Warm Springs, Virginia. 

When President Nenah E. Fry needed help closing her famih- home in Chicago, 
Kay volunteered to assist with the clearing and packing. In the process, she stumbled 
across something that elevated her alreadv-high opinion of the president. "I read 
Nenah's high school valedictory speech, detailing her deep understanding and great 
respect for education," recalls Kay. "It was all right there - everything Nenah stood 
for and cherished was in that speech. I realized that, starting at a verv young age, she 

was determined to dedicate 





Kay Macdonald 



Sueet Buar's seventh president, Nenah Elinor Fr)', served from 1983 to 1990. 
She died ot heart failure in April 1995 at the age of 62. 

Under President Fry's direction. Sweet Briar initiated strategic planning and 
redefined its mission toward preparing women for the challenges of the 21st 
Century. The College's program began emphasizing women's roles in a global 
and technological economy: expanding study abroad opportunities, adding Latin 
American studies to the curriculum, and offering certificates in business, public 
administration, and arts management. 

During her tenure, SBC added a bachelor of science degree and increased 
student and faculty access to personal computers. Plans for the renovation of 
Cuion were established, and the faculty approved the start of the Honors Pro- 
gram. 

Under President Fry's leadership, the endowment grew significantly, from 
$24 million to $44 million. Her efforts to improve the quality of campus life 
resulted in the renovation of five residence halls and the construction of the 
Florence Elston Inn. 

Throughout her presidency. President Fry spoke eloquently on behalf of 
women's education in general and at Sweet Briar in particular In 1990, the 
Alumnae Association honored her superb speaking ability by undenvriting a 
one-semester course known as the Nenah Fr\' Lectureship in Public Speaking. 



not ]ust part of her life, but 
her wbo/e life to furthering the 
ideas and values ot education." 

"I had always been impressed with Nenah's 
accomplishments. She earned her master's degree 
and her doctorate in European historj' from Yale. I 
knew that some of the students she taught early in 
her career at Wilson College still called on her for 
advice and support. As dean of the college at Wells 
and as president of Sweet Briar, she proved to be 
an effective, forward-looking leader and an out- 
standing spokesperson for women's education. 
Even so, I wasn't aware of the depth of her com- 
mitment until I read her valedictory speech. It put 
everything in perspective. And I began to consider 
just how much Nenah had done for Sweet Briar 
College during her seven years as president." 

Kay has since moved near Bnmswick Maine, to 
a retirement communit)- fiUed with old triends. But 
time and distance has not lessened her esteem for 
President Frv^ This fall, while visiting Chaplain 
Lehman and John Dalzell in Warm Springs, she 
decided to stop by the campus and visit the vice 
president for development. Dr. Ivana Pelnar-Zaiko. 

"It took me a long time to come to the deci- 
sion," says Kay. "But I am putting a provision in 
my will, leaving Sweet Briar S500,000 to support 
student scholarships in Nenah's memory. I think it 
is the best way to honor the legacy of a good friend 
and a remarkable educator."
