President's Letter 




I hope that as you read this edition of the 
magazine you notice as I do the depth and 
breadth of Mary Baldwin College's aca- 
demic program and its graduates. To read 
the essay by Doenges scholar David Brad- 
ley is to recognize the intellectual 
enrichment students on campus now re- 
ceive through visiting scholars and artists. 
To read about scientific research of a sig- 
nificant kind, completed or in process by 
our faculty, is also to recognize the depth 
of scholarly interactions in our classrooms. 
In addition, our mission of academic out- 
reach is demonstrated through the students 
of the Adult Degree Program, who bring 
varied life experiences and stimulation to 
one another and to us through their work. 
To read of the life and times of ADP 
student Ruth Graham Mclntyre and also 
to contemplate our ADP Green Beret Bill 
Goodson is to capture once again the 
significance of the Adult Degree Program 
that MBC offers and through which we 
have been highly successful. Mary Bald- 
win College continues her founding 
mission, but has extended it and is con- 
stantly in the process of enriching it. This 
magazine continues to celebrate the aca- 
demic strength of the college. 



This magazine also celebrates the greatest 
fundraising success in our history to date. 
In my gratitude, I contemplate the many, 
many people who have joined together to 
make this success happen. I am convinced 
that this support comes because of the 
quality of service we provide. You, our 
alumnae and friends, are helping us to 
provide for our students the enrichment 
of scholars and artists. You are supporting 
scientific research that benefits each stu- 
dent in the science classroom. You rejoice 
in the achievement of our adult students. 
You have seen that MBC is a weighty 
academic environment. What our faculty 
and students achieve has inspired you, 
and generosity is the result. So now, in my 
appreciation to those who have helped 
bring about this significant level of giving, 
I pledge our continuing dedication to high 
standards, not only in the classroom, but 
in every aspect of MBC's work. My pledge 
is that we will continue to be worthy of 
your support, and I make an equally strong 
pledge that we shall redouble our efforts to 
reach even greater heights. I look back 
with much gratitude and respect and look 
forward with optimism and energy.

MBG Campaign Goal 
- $50 Million 

It's the largest campaign goal ever set by Mary Baldwin College. In 
fact, it's the largest campaign goal set by any women's college in 
Virginia to date. 

On October 7, the Board of Trustees announced the beginning 
of the second, public phase of the Leadership Initiative Campaign. 
Leadership Initiative Chair Charlotte Jackson Berry '5 1 announced 
that a total of over $47 million has already been raised by campaign 
volunteers, leaving $2.5 million still to raise. 

"We originally scheduled our public announcement for April of 
2000," Berry noted at a press confer- 
ence. "But we have gotten such a 
positive response from Mary Baldwin's 
friends that we are ahead of schedule 
in meeting our goal. We decided it 
was time to share the good news with 
the entire Mary Baldwin family." 

The campaign started out with 
one extraordinary gift of $5 million. 
The same donor commited a second $5 million, and an additional 
$ 10 million came from other sources. The campaign then grew into 
a more ambitious effort as it became clear that there were many 
additional individuals and foundations who believed in Mary 
Baldwin's mission and were willing to support the college. 



Endowment and College Projects 
Benefit from Campaign 

The Leadership Initiative Campaign has already begun to show results in tangible 
improvements in campus facilities and programs: 

• MBC's historic Administration Building is now beautifully renovated and 
upgraded. 

• Pearce Science Center's building systems have been upgraded, and new scientific 
equipment is being purcheased and installed. 

• The Martha Stackhouse Grafton Library has undergone a major interior renova- 
tion which includes technological improvements such as wiring the study carrels 
for Internet access. 

• MBC has a state-of-the-art language laboratory and new computer labs for 
graphic design, theater design and music. 

• The Cynthia Haldenby Tyson Endowment for Leadership Development has 
been established. 

• A $3 million endowment supports the Carpenter Health Care Administration 
Program, making it the only undergraduate program of its type to be endowed at 
this level. 

• A $L5 million endowment from the Carpenter Foundation, matched with an 
additional $250,000 from other sources, supports the chaplaincy and the 
religion discipline; this includes programming such as Quest.

1998-99 Best Fund-Raising Year Ever 

Mary Baldwin broke all its previous records in fundraising last year. Prior to the 
second phase of the Leadership Initiative Campaign, volunteers and staff were 
busy contacting potential donors - a successful effort that led to the earlier-than- 
expected campaign announcement in October. As a result, donations rose to more 
than $8.2 million in 1998-99 compared with not quite $5 million the previous 
year. The dramatic increase can be attributed to fulfillment of large pledges. 



Building the Endowment 

The Leadership Initiative will add $16 million to the endowment by 2004 and 
another $3 million in bequests and other deferred gifts. Since 1 985 , when Cynthia 
H. Tyson became president, the endowment has grown from $ 1 1 million to almost 
$32 million, but the college endowment still lags far behind that of other 
institutions of its size and quality. 

"Because MBC's endowment is small, it provides less income than our 
competitors' endowments," explains President Tyson. "We lack a financial cush- 
ion to weather an economic downturn or a drop in admissions. Increasing the 
endowment is one of the best ways to ensure that Mary Baldwin will continue to 
thrive in the coming century. The Leadership Initiative is a step in that direction." 

"In order to stay competitive and to provide the best education for the future, 
we must increase our endowment even more," adds Chair of the Board of Trustees 
Claire "Yum" Arnold '69. "Although this campaign has made great strides, when 
it reaches its goal, MBC will still have work to do." 



Cynthia Haldenby Tyson Endowment 
for Leadership Development 

Thanks to eight women, all alumnae and most current or former trustees, 
there is a new $2,226 million endowment fund at MBC. The donors have 
chosen to remain anonymous, but stipulated that the fund be named after 
MBC President Cynthia Haldenby Tyson. 

One of the donors, speaking for the group, said, "We felt this was an 
appropriate time to come together as a group of alumnae and create this 
endowment to honor a woman who has given outstanding service and leadership 
to the college. We hope our gifts will be just the beginning - an inspiration for 
others to follow." 

"1 was astonished and deeply touched when these good friends of Mary 
Baldwin told me of their plans," commented President Tyson. "It was a complete 
surprise. 1 am grateful for their faith in me and their commitment to this college." 

Dr. Tyson has been president of Mary Baldwin since 1985. Under her 
leadership, the college established the Master of Arts in Teaching program and 
rhe Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership (VWIL). The college is in a 
itrrmger position financially than ever before, and enrollment has increased 
-Very year during her tenure. 

"From its earliest years, Mary Baldwin has prepared women for responsible 
leadership, first in our traditional program and more recently in the Program for the 
Exceptionally Gifted and VWIL," said James D. Lott, dean of the college. "This gift 
■vill ensure that we can continue that tradition in a very intentional way."

Fall 1999 • The Mary Baldwin College Macazin 



Hamburgers that can kill you. Salads that can put you in 
the hospital. Poultry and eggs that carry dangerous 
microbes. Every year contaminated and spoiled foods 
kill approximately 9,000 Americans and sicken as many as 76 
million. Still, most people remain blissfully uninformed about E. 
coli and other microscopic villains that strike at one. of life's most 
basic requirements - the need for nourishment. 

Enter journalist and MBC graduate Nicols Fox, whose first 
book. Spoiled, has probably done fnore to educate consumers about 
foodbome pathogens than any other single source. In this land- 
mark work. Fox presents the unblinking truth about our tainted 
food supply - how' it got that way, how it can initiate serious and 
even potentially fatal illnesses, and how we can combat the 
problem. 

But waiit a minute. Is this the same Nicols Fox who left 
Mary Baldwin in 1964 with an art degree? Is this the same 
Nicols Fox who wrote critiques for some of the best 
art publications in the country, and who at one 




point exhibited her own paintings in 
both America and Europe? Is this high 
priestess of foodbome illness the same 
person who got the jump on every 
other journalist in the country in 
1990 by first writing about the com- 
ing collision between taxpayers and the 
National Endowment for the Arts? 

Yes, and it is the same Nicols Fox who 
was bom in 1942 in what is now MBC's Bailey 
Residence Hall- then King's Daughters' Hos- 
pital. Her mother was from Staunton, but 
her father was a military man who, like most 
"tareer military men, changed duty stations with 
headspinning frequency. For the most part, Fox en- 
joyed the life of a gypsy and thrived in the wildly- 
contrasting environments of places like Texas, Japan, 
Germany, France and Taiwan. It was perhaps this 
potpourri of early experiences that led to some indecision 
in college. 

"When 1 got to Mary Baldwin, 1 wanted to do it 




all," Fox said. "I was interested in theater, writing, economics, 
history, English and the arts. Of course, I couldn't major in all of 
them, so 1 chose to double-major in the visual arts and English - 
or so I thought." Years later, she discovered she had double- 
majored in the arts and history. 

The confusion is understandable. Fox took so many courses at 
Mary Baldwin that she graduated six months ahead of schedule. 
As a portent of things to come, the academic flurry of activity 
included entering and winning three competitions: a writing 
contest in her junior year, the program design competition for the 
production of Medea, and a competition for a spot on stage with 
Dame Judith Anderson. 

"Academically, 1 was less than brilliant," she said, "so winning 
these competitions was a rather memorable high point." 

After graduation. Fox began her pursuit of a career in the arts. 
Her first job as coordinator of children's tours at the National 
Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. was satisfying though "hard 
on the feet." Six months into the job she was off on another 
adventure - marriage - which landed her in Charlottesville, Va., 
helping put her husband through law school. 

Despite having two children and eventually moving with her 
family for a six-year sojourn in Europe, Fox continued to paint. 

"I was very serious about my work, and I produced in almost 
every medium," she said. "Once my children started school I had 
more time to devote to my art, and I exhibited some in Europe." 

While her marriage wasn't destined to last. Fox's relationship 
with her art seemed robust. Back in the United States she paintea, 
exhibited frequently in her new hometown of Richmond, and 
pursued a master's degree. One of her professors told her at the end 
of the course that she should be writing. 

"I'd written several pieces of art criticism for his class, and had 
always thought of myself as a writer, although I hadn't done more 
than a little bit of art criticism here and there," Fox said. She added 
with a laugh that "It reminded me of something I once read about 
Tom Wolfe, who thought he was a writer and then realized, at age 
30, that he hadn't actually written anything." 

"Like Wolfe," she added, "I figured I'd better get started." 

So she took her professor's advice, attended an art show, wrote 
a critique and submitted it to a magazine. The piece was accepted. 

"I was amazed," Fox said. "I absolutely revere writers, so much 
so that I was always nervous around 
them. So here I was getting paid for 
something I'd written,- and my in- 
stinct was to feel a bit like an imposter. 
I still do, to some extent. I keep 
wondering when I'm going to be 
found out." 

Fox found critical writing so in- 
teresting that after nearly 30 years of 
working as an artist, she lost interest 
in producing canvasses. 

"I just found I had nothing more 
to say as an artist." 

However, Fox had plenty to say 
about art, and did so in such presti-

gious publications as the New Art Ex- 
aminer, the Washington Post, Art in 
America and The Washingtonian. But 
even more changes lay in store for this 
newly successful writer, not the least of 
which was a change of venue. 

Fox moved to Maine — a state she 
said she had always admired — and 
worked briefly as a copy editor for the 
Bar Harbor Times. She also took over 
editorship of a small church periodical, 
transforming it from an undistinguished 
publication into the North American 
Church Press' Most Improved News- 
paper of 1988. There was one more 
stint in Washington, D.C., as associate 
editor of what is now called American 
journalism Review, but the appeal of 
Maine was strong and eventually she 
returned for good. 

There "it became clear that in or- 
der to make a living, I couldn't write 
solely about the arts," Fox said. "I had 
to write about a variety of things, and 
as a result I became more and more of 
a generalist. But freelancing is hard, 
and having a lot of different editors is 
tiresome, so I was on the lookout for a 
book topic." 

That book - the now much-her- 
alded Spoiled - got its start as a magazine 
article for The Economist about a new 
and frighteningly virulent form of E. 
coli named 1 5 7 :H7. As Fox researched 
the article, she was drawn ever deeper 
into the mysterious world of this mi- 
croscopic killer. Since E. coli is a 
common bacterium, why was it killing 
people? How had it gotten into foods 
around the globe in just a few years? 

The information was elusive, but 
Fox eventually ferreted it out through 
hundreds of interviews with victims, 
agricultural specialists, scientists in the 
Centers for Disease Control, and oth- 
ers. There were many, many hours spent 
on library research, she said. But she 
also had help. People from all over the 



world sent her articles from medical 
journals and shared their wisdom. NX^at 
she discovered was disturbing — that 
changes in our lifestyles, culture, food 
production, processing and distribu- 
tion are opening doors to emerging 
foodbome pathogens. Consumer de- 
mand for fast, convenient, novel, exotic 
and, most of all, cheap foods have a role 
in producing illnesses from mild diar- 
rhea to organ-destroying and 
life-threatening infections. 

Peddling the book idea was nearly 
as difficult as researching it had been. 
Fox went through 26 rejections and 
two agents before she finally took on 
the challenge of selling the book her- 
self. It took another six rejections before 
she discovered an editor as interested 
as she was in these new foodbome 
pathogens. But once she did, and once 
the book was published in 1997, the 
response was overwhelming. 

"Nicols Fox is utterly fearless," 
wrote Sven Birkerts, author of The 
Gutenberg Elegies. "She reads and ar- 
ranges her details until they turn 
phosphorescent and reveal a trail. Com- 
bine Bernstein and Woodward, change 
the gender, and you'll get the idea. 
Spoiled is a very important book." 

And from author Robin Cook, "I 
think that Spoiled can do for the food 
industry what Silent Spring did for the 
environment." 

Instantly Fox became one of the 
country's experts on foodbome patho- 
gens. The whirlwind of attention most 
recently whisked her into the role of 
speaker at a Centers for Disease Con- 
trol conference and as a presenter at a 
global food hygiene conference in Fin- 
land. Her second book. It Must Have 
Been Something You Ate: A Practical 
Guide for Avoiding and Surviving 
Foodbome Disease, was published July 
1. This time, publishers competed to 
take it to print, and USA Today re- 



cently devoted half a page to Fox and 
the new book. 

While appreciative of the atten- 
tion and professional success her 
research has generated. Fox says she is 
ready to move on to new challenges. 
Her next book will explore why people 
are resistant to technology. 

"At one end of the spectrum you 
have people who won't use a micro- 
wave oven, and at the other end you 
have people who live in shacks and go 
without electricity, or, at the extreme, 
people who express their technophobia 
violently, like Ted Kaczynski," Fox said. 
"What's the common thread among 
them, and why do they feel the way 
they do? All those people have a story, 
and 1 want to bring those stories to- 
gether." She's already received her first 
rejection, which at this point merely 
stirs her blood for another bout with 
the publishing world. 

Although Fox hasn't visited 
Staunton or Mary Baldwin College in 
years — "most of my Staunton rela- 
tives are gone," she explained — she 
still has fond memories of the area. In 
fact, she credits Mary Baldwin with a 
key element of her success. 

"If 1 hadn't been at a liberal arts 
college that made me take a science 
course, would I have sat up straight 
when I heard E. coli was killing people 
and said, 'E. coli is in all our guts. It's 
benign. What's going on here?' " The 
rest is history, as they say. 

Does she ever take a break? 

"My work is my fun," Fox said. "I 
love to read and write and talk to 
people. I live in a delightful little Maine 
cottage with a cat and a big yellow 
Labrador retriever, and I just don't see 
how life could get any better than this."

MBG Reaps the Benefits of 

IBM Exchange Program 



by Katheryn Lenker 




Sandy Cureton, 

director of development at IBM 



Maty Baldwin will have the talents of 
one of IBM's directors on loan for this 
academic year, as Sandy Cureton, direc- 
tor of development at IBM, visits the 
college as part of the IBM Faculty Loan 
program. While here, she will advise the 
college on further incorporating tech- 
nology into the Mary Baldwin curriculum. 

"Almost anything you do, you're see- 
ing that access to technology and 
incorporating technology into the pro- 
gram curriculum makes sense," she said. 

Cureton, who will be based in the 
computer science department, will also 
teach classes in systems analysis and de- 
sign, her area of expertise. As a benefit to 
the entire college, she will also offer her 
experience and personal contacts in the 
information technology field to the col- 
lege as a consultant. 

In addition, Cureton said she will 
serve as a conduit between IBM and the 
f ij Jents, sharing information about IBM 
I IV I what it has to offer, as well as helping 
■rmJents make sure they have the right 
ikills for the technology world. 

"Mainly, I want to be a resource 
"' rhe people at Mary Baldwin," 
'^^iireton said. 



Though she will spend the year away 
from her home in Dallas, her husband, 
and her grandchildren, she said the loan 
program is important to IBM's corporate 
philosophy. 

"At IBM, there is a very long history 
and track record [of involvement] in the 
communities in which they do business," 
she said. "That's why they say IBM is only 
as good as its people." 

Cureton said both IBM and Mary 
Baldwin share a strong appreciation for 
diversity. She sees this at Mary Baldwin 
in the Adult Degree Program and the 
Program for the Exceptionally Gifted. 

IBM recognizes the value of a varied 
workforce and has historically promoted 
this, she said. "It's who's in the workforce. 
Why would anybody rule out a large 
portion of their potential workforce?" 

Joining IBM in the 1980s was a good 
choice, Cureton said. The field was not 
saturated and women were already work- 
ing as programmers. 

"If you could do it, you were ac- 
cepted," she said. "Competency was the 
key thing." 

This environment has continued at 
IBM, Cureton added, and today talented, 
skilled women have many opportunities, 
though they still face some challenges 
common to the business world. 

Though she hadn't visited 
Staunton before her interview at Mary 
Baldwin, the college had an instant 
appeal, and she already feels she has 
something in common with it — its 
Adult Degree Program. 

Cureton worked full time at Texas 
Instruments and raised a family while she 
earned her bachelor's degree at Tarleton 
University in Stephensville, TX. She then 
went on to earn her master's degree in 
software design and development at Texas 
Christian University in Fort Worth, TX. 
She started working at IBM in 1984 



and has held several different positions 
there, including chief information of- 
ficer of IBM's software division and her 
current position, director of develop- 
ment, IBM Customer Relationship 
Management. Cureton also managed 
the software development division and 
worked with the information technol- 
ogy sales and distribution division. 

As a complement to the Faculty Loan 
Program for its employees, IBM also 
offers a Faculty Internship Program to 
give college professors the opportunity 
to learn about the technology industry. 
Associate Professor of Business Ad- 
ministration Janet Ewing spent the 
summer in Atlanta working with the 
IBM Internal Services division on Y2K 
preparations for the United States and 
13 countries worldwide. The team she 
was part of tested Germany's Y2K pre- 
paredness. She said the experience gave 
her some valuable ideas for applying 
project management techniques to the 
curriculum. 

Project management, which in- 
volves figuring out what resources 
are available, the project's 
timeframe, and how to accomplish 
the project's goals, is an idea that all 
students can apply to their majors 
and future jobs, Ewing said. 

"What you see and learn in this 
kind of internship just can't be re- 
placed. I feel like 1 can come back and 
make a difference across the curricu- 
lum." 

She said the internship helped her 
better understand the types of skills 
needed in the technology world and 
how colleges can prepare students. 

Excited about her summer, Ewing 
is very optimistic about a continued 
partnership between the college and 
IBM. "We're in a win-win situation," 
she said.

When I was a sixteen, I re- 
signed from my high school 
basketball team. I'd played 
basketball since junior high. I had never 
been a starter, but I'd practiced hard, 
stayed in training, hung on my coach's 
every word. This year I was a junior, 
riding the varsity bench, and, though no 
threat to the starting five, I believed that 
if I worked hard over the summer and 
grew an inch or two, I'd be first string as 
a senior, or at least the regular sixth man. 
Meanwhile, I waited my turn, grateful 
whenever, thanks to injury, foul trouble 
or a lopsided score, I got a few minutes in 
a game. 

But one Friday night, my coach de- 
nied me those few minutes. We were 
losing bad but fighting hard; four of the 
nine men who played ahead of me had 
been disqualified on fouls. When the 
fifth man fouled out, I started stripping 
off my warm-up pants. But the coach 
leaned around me and gestured to the 
next man — a sophomore. 

I was embarrassed and angry. I was 
also rational. It seemed the coach was 
telling me I'd gone as far as I could in 
basketball. Who was I to argue? What 
would be the point? And what would be 
the point of practicing several hours a 
day ? I could study more and earn more at 
my part-time job, thus improving my 
prospects for college, which was surely

more important than playing basketball. 
Monday afternoon I told my coach, face- 
to-face, man-to-man, that I was 
"resigning" from the team. I expected 
cold indifference. I got frigid fury. "So 
go," he said. "This team doesn't want 
quitters." 

There is an ideal called "manhood." 
Like all ideals, it defies direct definition 
and it is most easily described by its 
negatives. Manhood is not a license for 
emotional indifference, hormone-driven 
selfishness or vacuous pride. Manhood is 
not uniquely masculine; it seems a "man 
thing" only because historically more 
emphasis has been placed on — and 
more funds invested in — the formal 
training of males. Certainly it is not 
about so-called "male prerogatives;" 
Manhood has no entitlements, all its 
privileges must be earned, for manhood 
is not about privilege; it's about obliga- 
tion. It is not a code of laws or morals; it 
is not so absolute. Nor is it a code of 
ethics; its principles, all unwritten, com- 
bine the dicta of a dozen sometimes 
codes — bushido, the Ten Command- 
ments, the codes of chivalry and courtly 
love, the Beatitudes, the modem Honor 
Code. Since many of these principles 
conflict, manhood's "behavioral guide- 
lines" are circular and algebraic. A man's 
gotta do what a man's gotta do — what- 
ever he decides that is. But one thing is 
clear: once he starts doing it, he keeps on 
until it's done ... or until he is. The one

thing a man does not do is quit. 

No one knows where this never- 
say-die dictum was born — perhaps 
among the Spartans or the Amazons — 
but it was reincarnated in the folk tales 
of America: of John Paul Jones, who 
declared that he had not yet begun to 
fight, and refused to lower the flag even 
as his ship went down; of Casey Jones, 
who kept his hand on that brake, even 
though he knew those locomotives were 
going to bump; of John Henry, who died 
with his hammer in his hand. These 
were not just legends but lessons in man- 
hood; it is no accident that when Casey 
told his fireman to jump he called the 
fireman "boy" nor that John Henry's 
epitaph called him a "steel-drivin' man." 

In our less lore-oriented era, boys 
have been taught this dictum, along 
other values of manhood, through the 
medium of organized athletics. Rare is 
the locker room without a wall adorned 
with maxims — "When the Going Gets 
Tough the Tough Get Going" and "Win- 
ners Never Quit and Quitters Never 
Win." Rare is the practice when nobody 
has to run laps to atone for "giving up on 
the play." Rare is the pre-game pep-talk 
or the behind-at-the-half tongue-lash- 
ing that does not cite the Eleventh 
Commandment: Thou Shalt Not Quit. 
So what if they're stronger, swifter, 
smarter and ahead, 84-3; It Ain't Over 
'Til It's Over, and It Ain't Over 'Til the 
Fat Lady Sings. The constant message is: 
Go hard, and keep on going hard until 
the whistle blows. If 
you don't, you're a 
quitter, which is worse 
than being a loser — 
though you'll inevita- 
bly be a loser, too. 

To some, this may 
sound silly. But it's nec- 
essary and true. You 
must be taught to per- 
severe; it does not come 
naturally. And you must 
learn to persevere. If you 
give up easily, you are unlikely to achieve 
anything worth even your own remember- 
ing. A long struggle, regardless of outcome, 
can be a memorable achievement in itself. 
And if you do so struggle, you may achieve 
more than you dreamed possible, without 
even realizing what you're doing. If you 
keep your hand on the plow and your eyes 
on the prize, you may achieve things the 
whole world will remember.

I had been instructed in perseverance 
long before I entered my first locker room. 
My father, a historian, was an admirer of 
Winston Churchill, and quoted the 
"Never, Never, Never Give Up" speech 
at me so often I felt like a student at the 
Harrow School for Boys. He was also a 
minister, and at least once a year would 
base a sermon about Christian constancy 
on a text from Job: "Though he slay me, 
yet will I trust him." But unlike maxims of 
sport, teachings at the dinner table or 
preachings from the pulpit offered no 
opportunity for immediate, practical and 
physical application. I'd sung the hymn 
"We Shall Not Be Moved" dozens of 
times, but first really understood it when, 
while playing Little League Football, I 
heeded the coach's shout and screwed my 
belly-button to the ground — and found 
that I could make the tackle. And it was 
my basketball coach who drove the les- 
son of perseverance home. 

He was neither so exegetical and so 
metaphysical as my father, nor as ironic 
as Yogi Berra or Doug Moe, but he had 
the alliterative eloquence of a Marine 
drill instructor and the facility with in- 
sult of a Bedouin. We called his 
behind-at-half orations "butt-burners" 
and tried to laugh them off, but we feared 
them, in part because his actual lan- 
guage was so benign. Without profanity 
and with only occasional vulgarity, he 
could make you feel God-damned. He 
didn't swear at you, he cursed you. That's 
how 1 felt as I walked out of the gym that 
day: cursed, forever and 
all time. 

For though I still felt 
it was a good decision, I 
realized what my coach 
said might be true. I 
could call it resignation, 
but the fact was, I had 
quit. That didn't prove I 
was a quitter; it did raise 
that possibility. If 1 
wasn't a quitter, I had to 
somehow prove a nega- 
tive. The only way to do that was to 
never, ever, quit again. 

For the next dozen years 1 aban- 
doned almost nothing. When I did give 
up on something, I was consumed by 
guilt and doubt. At first I was trying to 
prove — or disprove — something, but 
gradually my motivation became more 
inner-directed and positive; I was trying 
to be something — a man, for want of an 



ungendered term. I understood man- 
hood had other imperatives, but to never 
quit was the most clear, and, I decided, 
the most fundamental. 

During those years I accomplished 
things of which, at sixteen, I had but 
dimly dreamed. I gained entrance to an 
Ivy League University. I paid my own 
way with scholarships and part-time and 
summer work. 1 graduated with honors. 
I won a fellowship to study abroad. I 
completed six marathons and three 
books, one of which was actually pub- 
lished and even favorably reviewed. 

I was neither impressed nor intimi- 
dated by the critics' compliments. I knew 
I wasn't talented or brilliant; I'd just 
hung in there, done it over and over, 
until the book was good. I knew my next 
novel would be better, because I'd keep 
working on it until it was. I didn't think 
I knew it all; I did think, not without 
reason, that I had a few things figured 
out. Then my father fell ill. 

His ailment had an unknown etiol- 
ogy and a fancy, hyphenated name: 
Guillian-Barre Syndrome. It produced a 
paralysis in the lower limbs that gradu- 
ally ascended the spinal column and 
affected every nerve — even those con- 
trolling involuntary muscles. The 
diaphragm and lungs had to be assisted 
by respirators; pacemakers had to be 
employed to keep the heart beating. 
Pneumonia was a constant threat. Car- 
diac arrest was common. Guillian-Barre 
was painful and terrifying and incurable, 
but not fatal; patients died, but as a result 
of secondary complications. And after 
about eleven weeks, it ran its course and 
went away. The ascending paralysis de- 
scended; muscle function returned. 
Though rehabilitation was required, full 
recovery was the norm. You could sur- 
vive Guillian-Barre; all you had to do 
was . . . hang in there. 

I hung in there. I was teaching at a 
university three hundred miles away, 
but each week I went to my father's 
bedside. Supposedly, I was cheering him 
up; actually, I was cheering him on. I 
cajoled him to eat, though he had little 
appetite and swallowing was hard. I 
coaxed him to sit up in a chair to help 
ward off pneumonia, though it caused 
him serious pain. I ordered him to accept 
the agonizing ministrations of the physi- 
cal therapist. 1 told him he had to fight, 
and measured his resolve with a test I'd 
seen the neurologists use; I'd lay m^

index finger across his palm and tell him 
,' squeeze. "Come on, Pop," I'd say, "make 
a fist and squeeze." He squeezed. But 
each week his grip grew weaker. I told 
him he was doing fine. 

Though I despaired, I hid it; even 
when pneumonia became not a threat 
but a fact, I refused to give up hope. But 
one day my father refused to squeeze, 
refused to make a fist, refused to raise 
[either hand. "Come on. Pop," I said. 
j "How are you going to fight this thing if 
you won't put up your dukes?" 

"David," he whispered, "Fm not 
going to make it." 

I charged out of the hospital, went 
storming through the streets, mentally 
j cursing my father who had quoted 
IChurchill at me, but who now failed to 
jfollowjob — my father the quitter. Well, 

I decided, after an hour of angry 
ambulation, maybe he was a quitter, but 

I I was not. 

I found the public library, looked up 
a collection of Dylan Thomas's poetry. I 
memorized a verse from Thomas' exhor- 
•tation to his father: "Do Not Go Gentle 
Into That Good Night." 

And you, my father, there on the sad 

height. 
Curse, bless me now with your fierce 

tears I pray. 
Do not go gentle into that good night, 
Rage, rage against the dying of the light. 

Then I went stomping back to the 
hospital, intending to give my father a 
■poetic pep talk that would put both his 
sermons and my old coach's butt-burn- 
ers to shame. 

But when I stalked back into his 
room, I saw my father lying, eyes closed 
and motionless. I thought that he was 
dead until I saw his chest slowly rise and 
fall, and his lips move microscopically. 
Then I realized the hands that he'd re- 
fused to move were now folded on his 
breast. And it came to me that some 
things a man must do can't be done with 
clenched hands. 

My father did not make it. And the 
fact i s, he quit. And I did too — although 
not easily. But when he lay in Intensive 
^J^re, shaking with pain and convul- 
II. Hi, when all his vital organs — heart, 
lungs, kidneys, liver, brain, for all I knew 
— had given out or given up, when the

him breathe. But when he decides to go, 
let him go — tell that fat lady it's time to 
sing. 

I remember how 
they looked at me, those 
doctors, all men but 
one. 1 remember how 
that lone woman left 
our meeting and went 
in to my father and gen- 
tly squeezed his hand. I 
remember how my 
mother sat in the In- 
tensive Care waiting 
room, often silent, but 
somehow serene. I remember how God- 
awful guilty I felt. I remember thinking, 
Lord, ain't this manhood thing a bitch? 

That was twenty years ago. In those 
years, I've changed a lot. In the wake of 
my father's funeral, I did a lot of thinking 
about cultural inculcations, and the way 
that my father had died and the way that 
I was living. 

I thought about the maxims men 
live by and the promises men make — 
about the locker room rhetoric and he- 
roic poetry and mottoes couched in Latin 
and carved in stone; about oaths of office 
and vows of matrimony and all our vari- 
ous swearings-in — all of which come 
down to pledges that, no matter what 
the Universe serves up by way of dissua- 
sion, nothing will make us quit. Since 
life lacks the artifice of sport, men liter- 
ally do die trying — the real-life referee's 
whistle is the Reaper's scythe. 

I thought about all that I'd done 
between my coach's accusation and my 
father's death. I'd done what I had to do, 
the way I had to do it; I had been produc- 
tive and worked with honor; I had made 
no tragic mistake. 

But I'd paid a price for persever- 
ance. I'd thrown good efforts after bad. 
I'd allowed myself to be exploited by 
employers who realized I would never 
walk off a job and by lovers who sensed 
I could not leave them, especially if they 
charged me with "giving up on the rela- 
tionship." Rather than resign privately, 
I'd accepted public dismissal. I'd allowed 
myself to be cuckolded rather than ad- 
mit an affair had failed. I hadn't quit; I 
also hadn't learned to cut my losses. 
Instead, I'd learned to protect myself by 
avoiding riskier commitments; a man 
doesn't have to keep on doing what he 
never said he'd do. But to risk, no less 
than to persevere, is an essential of man- 
1 999 




hood; my living up to the one did not 
excuse my failing at the other. 

I decided what I had 
to do was learn how to 
quit. To learn when to 
jpi,^^ hold 'em and when to 
f[^!\^- fold 'em. To know when 
. %^ J to empty the bench to 
%||iF give the scrubs their min- 

utes. To allow myself to 
pray for the cup to be 
removed. I am not much 
good at it yet. I won't 
quit trying, of course. 
Society has changed 
a lot, too, during those twenty years. The 
training of young men has become the 
true "co-education;" the majority of col- 
lege — and law school — students are 
women now. Which means that in the 
coming century more and more women 
will be taking the oaths of office. TTius, 
it is good and vital that sport is now 
becoming more and more a "girl thing." 
Young women, no less then young men, 
must be taught to persevere. Young 
women, no less than young men, must be 
inculcated with the values of manhood. 
If they are to achieve and lead, and if we 
are all to prosper, they must meet the 
standaid Churchill set for those pubes- 
cent boys at Harrow. 

Yet young women, perhaps more 
urgently than young men, must also learn 
how and when to walk away. The kinds 
of exploitations I survived can be, for 
women, far more dangerous and devas- 
tating; at the same time, our 
half-enlightened society does not always 
understand that a woman may stand on 
a burning deck, not out of weakness, but 
out of strength. 

I watch women, now, play basket- 
ball. I watch theii coaches prance. 1 
don't wonder what gets said in the ladies' 
locker room; I already know. But I hope 
what gets said in there allows for the 
understanding that there is a time for 
resolution and a time for acceptance, a 
time for hanging in there, a time for 
letting go — and occasions when you are 
best-advised to haul ass out of Dodge. 

As for me, 1 sit up in the bleachers 
and ponder what came to me as 1 watched 
my dying father pray: that he who can 
but rave the fall of night forsakes the 
sunset.

The Rev. Billy Graham 

with daughter Ruth Graham Mclntyre. 



Iwas born into a family with 
a long spiritual heritage on 
both sides for many gen- 
erations. Not only was it a 
Christian family but a famous 
one. Being from a famous fam- 
ily has its responsibilities, 
burdens, pleasures and expec- 
tations; being from a famous 
religious family intensifies 
those. 

My childhood was unusual. 
At the time, I was unaware of 
that, but when I had a family of 
my own, I began to see how 
different my childhood really 
was. I had wonderful opportu- 
nities to travel, meet 
interesting people, make 
friends all over the world and 
be a member of a dynamic fam- 
ily that has made a real 
difference in the world. 

I was the middle of five 
children and grew up in a small 
community populated by eld- 
erly retired missionaries. 1 was 
surrounded by kind, gentle, 
older Christians. The Sab- 
bath was strictly held. 
Television and shopping were 
prohibited, even buying gaso- 
line. We could not read the 
newspaper or funny papers. But 
instead of feeling deprived, we 
felt that the day was a special 
one. Church was always at 
II :00, sitting beside my grand- 
parents, whom I adored. 

Following church, my 
mother prepared a big noon 
meal for any stray people she 
could round up. At 3:00, we 
gathered in the living room to 
listen to my father's radio 
broadcast while we consumed 
our weekly candy bar and soft 
drink. Later in the evening, 
some of the retired missionar- 
ies would gather around the 
piano and we would have a 
"hymn sing." (My children are 
amazed that 1 know all the stan- 
zas for so many old hymns!) In 
my home, hymas were the lulla- 
bies. Hymns played regularly 
over the radio or stereo. 

My parents stres.sed Bible 
memorization and personal, 
daily devotional time. Early in 

The Mary Baldwin College Magaz 



the morning my mother rose to 
have her own devotional time 
and often at night if I tiptoed 
down to her room, I found her 
on her knees praying. Her Bible 
was always open on her desk. I 
knew that God was my par- 
ents' companion in all 
circumstances and that they 
depended on Him. Mornings 
and evenings, we gathered as a 
family to have Bible reading 
and prayer. Conversations 
were peppered with Scriptural 
references. Evangelism was the 
heart-throb of my family due 
to personal conviction that 
man was a sinner and in need 
of salvation that only came 
through Jesus Christ. I learned 
early that Christianity was not 
a religion but a relationship. 

At the age of about seven, 
1 remember kneeling beside my 
bed with my mother and ask- 
ing Jesus to come into my heart. 
When I was 11 years old, my 
father and 1 attended a church 
revival to hear one of his friends 
preach. At the end of the ser- 
vice the preacher invited those 
who wanted to make a public 
commitment to Christ to come 
forward to the altar. 1 remem- 
ber wanting to go but being 
self-conscious because of my 
father's presence. Finally, 1 
stepped forward. It was the first 
time I had acknowledged my 
faith publicly. 

Those who have read my 
father's autobiography have 
commented on how often he 
was gone from home. Indeed, 
he was. But 1 do not remem- 
ber resenting it or feeling 
deprived. My life was full and 
happy, as I was surrounded by 
fun-loving friends and family. 
Mother never complained 
about his absences from home 
but was interested in and sup- 
portive of his worldwide 
ministry. We children took 
on her attitude. While my 
home community had little 
diversity, I was aware of being 
part of a diverse global family. 

Growing up, it was ac- 
cepted that wherever we went 



with our father, there would 
be a stir. People recognized 
him and invariably came up to 
speak with him or ask for a 
photograph or autograph. 1 
didn't resent this — I was 
proud of my father and real- 
ized how much he meant to 
other people — but it did make 
me very self-conscious. 

My grandparents lived 
nearby and were a powerful 
influence in my life. They had 
been medical missionaries to 
China for 25 years. My mother 
grew up in a missionary com- 
pound in China and went to 
high school in what is now 
North Korea. My grandpar- 
ents adored me. Over and over 
again they told me the excit- 
ing stories of China and the 
work God had done there — 
these were my bedtime stories. 

My early education was in 
a private school or with pri- 
vate tutors. When my parents 
finally decided to put me in the 
local public school, I felt like a 
misfit and was self-conscious 
because 1 didn't know the 
schoolyard subtleties of life 
outside my happy cocoon. Con- 
sequently, a feeling of 
inadequacy has stayed with me 
all my life. I later returned to 
private education. 

My junior year of high 
school, my parents took me 
out of the co-ed boarding 
school I had been attending in 
Florida. The school had a 
strong religious foundation and 
many strict rules. Those who 
ran the school admired my par- 
ents and treated me like a 
princess; many exceptions were 
made for me. 

While I had felt safe and 
happy at the school in Florida, 
my parents thought it best to 
move me to an all girls' board- 
ing school on Long Island. It 
had been billed as a Christian 
school, but it was only Chris- 
tian in principle. The students 
were mostly from privileged, 
secular New York homes and 
were "problem girls." I felt as if 
I had been thrown to the 



wolves. The old sense of inad- 
equacy haunted me. My parents 
were in Europe and I was home- 
sick! In addition, 1 had been 
diagnosed with mononucleo- 
sis and was isolated from the 
other students. 

During this year, I began to 
claim my faith as my own and 
felt 1 was starting on my own 
spiritual journey. My parents 
had taught me that Christian- 
ity is not a cookie cutter faith. 
God has made us each differ- 
ent, and yet we are all one. 
Neither my mother nor my fa- 
ther are rigid or judgmental — 
they have always shown toler- 
ance without compromise and 
the ability to accept and re- 
spect those from other walks of 
life and other faiths. 1 have 
learned from them to "agree to 
disagree" and not to make dis- 
agreements personal. That year 
I had to put what 1 had learned 
from them into practice. 

I grew up surrounded by 
people who talked about how 
God was their strength and 
comfort; I expected Him to be 
no less for me. I came through 
that year at boarding school 
stronger, and something be- 
gan to stir as I became aware 
that there were other ways of 
looking at life. Fine, solid 
Christians were on every side 
of most issues. 

At the end of that year, 
which had been miserable on 
several levels, my parents de- 
cided to send me on to college 
a year early. A Christian col- 
lege in Massachusetts agreed 
to take me as a freshman on the 
condition that 1 finish my se- 
nior year of high school by 
correspondence. (1 wish there 
had been a Program for the 
Exceptionally Gifted then such 
as Mary Baldwin has now!) So 
at 16, never having seen the 
campus or met any of the stu- 
dents, I entered college. 
Fortunately, 1 had a wonderful 
roommate from Maine who 
came from a totally different 
background from mine and her 
family adopted me as one of its 

15 



own. I began to experience a 
larger world from the one in 
which I had grown up and 
found it stimulating, but this 
phase of my life was not to last. 

I was reared to be a home- 
maker. No career goals were 
encouraged or implanted. I 
was taught that raising chil- 
dren and satisfying a husband 
were all that were necessary 
to be fulfilled. I had wanted 
to become a nurse but my 
father, without explanation, 
said no. At eighteen, I left 
college and went from obey- 
ing an authoritarian father to 
submitting to a domineering 
husband. My life was con- 
tinually defined by my 
relationship to a man. 

I easily fell into the rou- 
tine of homemaker and 
mother, following my 
mother's example. I loved 
being the mother of three and 
continued with my spiritual 
routine of daily Bible reading 
and prayer, using any spare 
time to organize women's re- 
treats for evangelism and 
spiritual growth. Difficulties 
arose in my marriage, but my 
husband and I had the oppor- 
tunity to purchase part of the 
farm that once belonged to 
my great-grandfather in Fort 
Defiance, Virginia. I was de- 
lighted to be going back to 
my "roots" (my mother's par- 
ents were originally from 
Waynesboro, Virginia). 

Shortly after we moved, 
my neat little world fell apart. 
I discovered my husband had 



been having an affair for five 
years. At first I resorted to 
the familiar pattern of de- 
nial, covering the problem 
over with spiritual platitudes. 
1 hid the truth from every- 
one, humiliated that anyone 
would find out, including my 
family. I prayed. I fasted. I 
forgave. I claimed Bible 
promises. I did all that I had 
been taught to do. Nothing 
made it go away. Physically, 
this cover-up began to take 
its toll, and I realized I had to 
get professional help or I 
would have a breakdown. I 
was raised to believe that 
God and the Bible were all 
you needed; to go to a psy- 
chologist meant you had a 
spiritual problem. In spite of 
fear that someone would find 
out, I sought professional 
counseling. I went through 
a difficult period of depres- 
sion, and eventually the 
marriage ended. Certainly 
this was nothing I had ever 
expected to happen to me. 

Not only did an emotional 
crisis take shape but a deep 
spiritual crisis. I had been told 
all my life that if you served 
God, he would take care of 
you. Over my front door since 
the day I was married had hung 
the Bible verse: "If you make 
the Most High your dwelling 
- even the Lord, who is my 
refuge - then no harm will 
befall you, no disaster will 
come near to your tent" (Psalm 
91:9-10). I had taken that 
verse quite literally. I had been 



serving God, being faithful to 
what I thought He wanted me 
to be. I felt that He had let me 
down. I was bewildered and 
hurt. I became disappointed 
as I claimed His promises for 
my life; I truly wrestled with 
what I expected - the way I 
thought God would fulfill 
those promises. I questioned 
His love for me. I questioned 
the truthfulness of His prom- 
ises. I questioned my spiritual 
foundations. Nothing seemed 
secure for me anymore. All 
my pat answers were gone. 
What did I believe ? Who did I 
believe? The emotions would 
heal long before the spiritual 
questions settled. 

My parents were loving 
and supportive throughout 
the ordeal but they were un- 
prepared for this. I was told 
that if I got a divorce I would 
hurt millions of people, as if 
my actions would affect 
people's attitudes toward 
God. Quite a heavy responsi- 
bility! One summer I spent a 
week reading through the Old 
Testament. I read about how 
the Israelites had done just 
about everything wrong, yet 
God's purpose was not 
thwarted; His plans kept 
moving right along. The Isra- 
elites may have come through 
worse-for-wear, but God was 
doing just fine! I came to un- 
derstand that I was not 
responsible for His reputa- 
tion; He was big enough to 
handle each situation and 
turn the hard circumstances 



of life into something He 
could use. Through this expe- 
rience, I began to shed my 
childish faith, experience a 
deeper understanding of grace 
and mature in my theology. 

At mid-life, I found I had 
to reinvent myself. It was at 
this point that I decided to 
finish my college education 
and a friend told me about the 
Adult Degree Program at Mary 
Baldwin. At the college I 
found a community of seek- 
ers. I have enjoyed my 
relationships with students, 
faculty and staff. I have been 
stimulated and challenged and 
stretched by my studies. The 
innovative Quest program has 
given me the opportunity to 
dialogue with younger women 
from varied backgrounds and 
faiths who want to incorpo- 
rate their spiritual life into 
their everyday experiences. 

My parents are proud of 
the fact that I decided to go 
back to college. When he is 
in town visiting, my father 
often attends campus events 
with me. When I graduate 
this year, I will be the first of 
his three daughters to finish 
college. 

One of the drawbacks of 
being a Graham is that I con- 
stantly battle the expectations 
of other people - trying to 
measure up. Slowly I have 
come to accept the fact that I 
don't have to meet those ex- 
pectations. I have grown up a 
Graham, but I am now able to 
appreciate being myself.

See How They Run- 

Student Research Project a Winner 

by Jacquelyn K. Beals, associate professor of biology 



JdtMii.:-, 



In mid-February 1998, Shaunta Poe 
'99 received both good news and 
bad. The good news was that 
I she had been nominated for the Minor- 
ity Student Summer Research Program 
(sponsored by the Virginia Foundation 
for Independent Colleges ( VFIC). The 
bad news was that she had less than a 
week to design a research project! 

In addition to being a typically busy 
biology major, Shaunta was also presi- 
dent of the MBC Student Government 
; Association. Despite the many demands 
of her SGA presidency, she wanted to 
pursue the possibility of funding for sum- 
mer research. At the suggestion of her 
jadvisor, Shaunta scanned recent issues 
of Science News for inspiration. Of 
[greatest interest to her was an article 
lentitled "Blocking Multiple Sclerosis 
in a Mouse Model" by Science News 
staff writer Damaris Christensen (who 
turned out to be a 1990 MBC biology 
graduate who had gone on to a career in 
science journalism). 



Shaunta sent a brief research pro- 
posal to VFIC and waited. A month 
later she learned that she, as well as 
MBC's other nominee, Mallessa James 
PEG '99, had been selected as a 1998 
VFIC research student. The award re- 
quired a commitment to 10 weeks of 
summer research and carried a $2,500 
stipend funded by duPont. Shaunta 
laughs now as she recalls how uncom- 
plicated her project sounded. She 
proposed to produce symptoms of mul- 
tiple sclerosis in mice, determine the 
physical effects of treatment by observ- 
ing mouse behavior, and then extend 
the study by "over-anesthetizing the 
mice and taking slides of their spinal 
cords. I will examine the amount of 
myelin . . . histologically using light and 
electron microscopy." As Shaunta soon 
learned, she had taken on a very de- 
manding project. 

How does a scientist produce mul- 
tiple sclerosis in mice ? Multiple sclerosis 
(MS) is one of the most common dis- 



eases of the central nervous system in 
humans. It involves inflammation and 
scarring within the brain and spinal cord, 
resulting in destruction of myelin, the 
white fatty sheath that covers nerve 
fibers much as insulation covers electri- 
cal wires. When myelin is destroyed, 
nerve fibers lose their ability to conduct 
electrical impulses, resulting in muscu- 
lar weakness, fatigue, paralysis and loss 
of sensation. MS probably results from 
an autoimmune response that causes a 
person's body to destroy its own my- 
elin. Some people experience periods 
of temporary recovery, while others 
show progressive deterioration. Yet no 
bacteria or viruses transmit MS. There 
is no handy way to inject the mice with 
MS germs and wait 24 hours. So back 
to the question — how can MS be 
produced in mice? 

Fortunately, a method exists. The 
Science News article described the work 
of Dr. D.C. Hooper at Thomas Jefferson 
University in Philadelphia. Hooper in-

duces a disease resembling MS by giving 
a series of injections to sensitize the 
mice to their own myelin. Their im- 
mune systems then attack the myelin, 
resulting in varying degrees of paralysis. 
Hooper's journal articles emphasize the 
behavioral symptoms and treatments of 
the resulting disease, called experimen- 
tal allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE). 
Shaunta wanted to induce EAE, then 
focus her investigation on microscopic 
changes in the myelin which accom- 
pany the weakness and paralysis. Hooper 
was looking at behavior changes; 
Shaunta would be looking at changes at 
the cellular level. 

By mid-June 1998, twelve mice sus- 
ceptible to EAE had arrived from a 
supplier in Maine. Guinea pig myelin 
basic protein was obtained from a com- 
pany in Missouri. Guinea pig myelin is 
foreign enough to be attacked by the 
mouse immune system; yet it resembles 
mouse myelin enough that the mice 
become sensitized to their own myelin 
as well. Shaunta also ordered pertussis 
toxin, which intensifies the immune 
response to guinea pig myelin. (By a 
similar process, a person's food aller- 
gies often worsen during hay fever 
season — the immune system is so 
cranked up that a moderate insult pro- 
duces an intense response.) 

In early July, Shaunta injected her 
mice with the combination of substances 
that should induce EAE. One week 
passed, then another and another. By 
now, Shaunta and her advisor were in 
regular e-mail contact with Dr. Hooper 
and his research assistant, Rhonda Kean. 
Amid the information they generously 
shared were two facts of particular inter- 
est: first, mice are much less likely to 
develop EAE with paralysis during the 
summer, despite being housed in win- 
dowless, air conditioned labs. This is 
intriguing, as MS occurs more often in 
people living in temperate rather than 



18 



tropical climates; the further from the 
equator, the more common is human 
MS. The reasons underlying this pat- 
tern are presently unknown. 

Second, commercially obtained 
guinea pig myelin often yields erratic 
results. Hooper had produced EAE far 
more reliably using homemade myelin 
basic protein prepared in his laboratory 
at TJU. He volunteered to send Shaunta 
enough to repeat her experiment. 

But now it was August, with no pros- 
pect of completing the study before 
classes resumed. Shaunta and her advi- 
sor agreed that the project was too 
interesting and they had worked too 
hard to give up after one try. So, in mid- 
September, with Dr. Hooper's myelin 
basic protein and nine new mice, 
Shaunta undertook her project for the 
second time. 

Three weeks after the injections, 
the mice developed EAE. Their symp- 
toms ranged from tail weakness, to hind 
limb weakness, to complete hind limb 
paralysis. 

Over the next two weeks, Shaunta 
anesthetized mice showing various de- 
grees of paralysis and prepared their 
spinal cords for microscopic examina- 
tion. Initially, the myelin in their 
spinal cords looked depressingly simi- 
lar. However, the mouse with 
complete hind limb paralysis showed 
more "wrinkled" myelin than the con- 
trol mouse did. Could this be a sign of 
EAE? Or was it an artifact of tissue 
preparation ? Shaunta wanted to quan- 
tify changes in the myelin, but she 
couldn't let wishful thinking influ- 
ence her results, so her advisor masked 
the slides to conceal their mice of 
origin. Keeping her fingers crossed, 
Shaunta counted the number of nerve 
fibers surrounded by wrinkled vs. 
smooth myelin insulation in three ar- 
eas of each spinal cord. 

The moment of truth arrived three 



days later when the slides were un- 
masked. The results were consistent 
enough to make all the work worth- 
while: 

• the control mouse showed only 12- 
13% wrinkled myelin in the three 
areas examined; 

• the mouse with tail weakness showed 
56-71% wrinkled myelin; 

• the mouse with hind limb weakness 
showed 79-84% wrinkled myelin; 

• the mouse with hind limb paralysis 
showed 66-93% wrinkled myelin. 

Shaunta's statistical analysis con- 
firmed a strong relationship between 
the amount of abnormal myelin and the 
degree of paralysis observed in each 
mouse. 

For her senior thesis defense, Shaunta 
utilized PowerPoint, an overhead pro- 
jector, an image of one of her microscope 
slides (displayed on a video monitor), 
and a videotape she had made of the 
mice demonstrating their EAE symp- 
toms. Her thesis defense demonstrated 
how much she had learned about re- 
search in general and EAE in particular 
since the day, more than a year earlier, 
when a Science ISIews article by another 
Mary Baldwin biology major first caught 
her eye. 

Shaunta graduated in May 1999, but 
the tissue she prepared was examined- 
more closely during the summer of 1999 
with MBC's transmission electron mi- 
croscope. The results will be shared 
with Dr. Hooper, whose generous help 
and advice were deeply appreciated. 

Meanwhile, MBC's link to Thomas 
Jefferson University is ongoing. An- 
other biology major, Tu-Anh Bui '00, 
was accepted into their 1999 summei 
research program. She is currently 
drawing on the knowledge and techni- 
cal skills acquired at TJU in designing 
her own senior research project.

Applications for Traditional 
Program up for Second Year 

Two hundred ninety-five freshmen ar- 
rived on campus on August 25''' to begin 
settling into their dorms. This heahhy 
enrollment can be attributed to a rise in 
applications for the second year in a row. 
Applications rose from 730 in 1997, to 
1,047 in 1998. This year the college 
received 1,185 applications. Campus 
visits were also up for the second year. 
1 997 saw 820 families visit campus; 1 998 
had 918; 948 families have visited so far 
this year. 

VWIL Applications up for 
Third Year 

The Virginia Women's Institute for 
Leadership had an increase in applica- 
tions for the third consecutive year. The 
program received 74 applications for the 
1999-2000 school year, an increase of 
almost 20% from 1998. Forty-three new 
cadets have enrolled for the fall. School 
officials attribute the increase to VWIL's 
growing reputation nationally. 

Women's Colleges Conference 
Promotes Career Development 

The second career development con- 
ference for students, "Focus on Women 
and Work," was held at Sweet Briar 
College on November 13, 1999. Mary

Randolph-Macon Woman's College 
and Sweet Briar College for the one- 
day conference. Three MBC alumnae 
participated in the program this year: 
Mary Melissa Derby '88, Alice Blair '86 
and Betty Hecht '68. The keynote 
speaker, Laura 
Groppe, is the 
founder of Girl 
Games, Inc., a 
multimedia en- 
tertainment 
company dedi- 
cated to providing 
young women 
with interactive

entertainment. Primarily geared toward 
students and college staff, the confer- 
ence is designed to provide information 
about careers and work-related issues, as 
well as opportunities for networking and 
mentorship. 

Expert in International 
Economics was Phi Beta 
Kappa Visiting Scholar

versity Professor of Economics at the 
University of Maryland at College Park

is an expert in the field 
of national income be- 
havior, international 
economics and arms control, and the

member of the National Academy of Sci- 
ence and the American Academy of Arts 
and Sciences. 



On-Campus ROTC 

With the arrival of Army Captain Joni 
Lacentra, Mary Baldwin will have its 
first full-time ROTC instructor on cam- 
pus. Lacentra will provide classes for

Parent e-Newsletter Launched 

MBCSpan's first issue was e-mailed to 
174 parents of current traditional, VWIL 
and PEG students in mid-October. Its 
purpose is to provide parents of on- 
campus and commuter students with up- 
to-the-minute news and information. 

"When there is important news, good 
or bad, we'll share it right away," promises 
Crista Cabe, associate vice president for 
college relations. "We'll send MBCSpan 
as often as necessary to communicate 
with parents about what's happening on 
campus." 

Parents who would like to subscribe 
to MBCSpan should send an e-mail to 



<colrel@mbc.edu>, put "Subscribe 
MBCSpan" in the subject line, and 
include the following information in the 
body of their message: parents' first and 
last names; daughter's full legal name; 
and parents' full mailing address to help 
MBC avoid confusion due to similar 



Addendum 

In response to the article on MBC 
entrepreneurs in the spring issue of 
The Mary Baldwin Magazine, Carol 
Eliason , president of Learning in Re- 
tirement at Edison Community College 
in Punta Gorda, FL, wrote to tell us 
that she first brought the idea ofentre- 
preneurship to MBC almost a decade 
ago. She said, "1 had a contract with 
the United States Small Business Ad- 
ministration to develop a counseling 
model and a 30-hour curriculum for 
women. After developing the model, 
while at the American Association of 
Community Colleges (1976-1985), 1 
was invited by Mary Baldwin to bring 
it to Staunton as part of its continuing 
education program. As requested, Idid 
so. In addition, I had consultations 
with the academic faculty . "

Baldwin is nationally recognized as a 
leading liberal arts college in the South. 
We are grateful to the many alumnae 
and friends of this college who invested 
in MBC last year. Their generosity 
made it a record year. 

Support for our Annual Fund has 
exceeded $1.3 million for the second 
year in a row. In addition, the college 
received over $4.75 million in gifts to 
the endowment compared to $1.13 
million last year. Gifts to endowment 
are invested and provide permanent 
financial support. 

Not included in these totals are 
planned major gifts, which have also 
increased dramatically over recent years. 
Martha Masters '69, director of planned 
giving, said, "Donors across the country 
are realizing the financial benefits of 
coordinating their financial planning 
— retirement or estate planning, for 
instance — with their charitable giv- 
ing." Planned gifts involve assets other 
than cash and can result in benefits to 
the donors and their families as well as 
to charitable organizations. 

Grafton Library Outfitted for 
the New Century 

By Lis Chabot, college librarian 

Discussions began in late 1998 on pos- 
sible upgrades for the Martha S. Grafton 
Library. While the building is an im- 
posing structure with abundant natural 
light and open space, the interior sur- 
faces and furnishings were showing the 
effects of 32 years of daily use. A reno- 
vation committee, which included 
■.Ivnipae, staff and students, met in 
' : ,i :h and June of 1999. The purpose 



of the renovation project was to 
reconfigure the library facility to better 
meet the challenges of the 2 1" century, 
while at the same time creating an 
aesthetically pleasing and functional 
environment. 

In the last decade, much has 
changed in the methods and mediums 
by which libraries provide materials and 
services to their users. An effective 
academic library must offer 1) ready 
access to a wide variety of print and 
digital information resources, 2) com- 
fortable spaces for collaborative and 
independent work, and 3) top-notch 
library instructional services. Working 
with an interior designer, the renova- 
tion committee focused on the 
functional aspects of the building. Once 
the design elements were selected, reno- 
vations began in mid-June with a 
targeted completion date of late Sep- 
tember. Throughout the summer, the 
building was a hub of dust, noise, and 
activity as painters, wiring crews, win- 
dow tinters and carpet layers worked on 
various aspects of the project. 

General renovations included re- 
placing the carpet on the main and 
mezzanine floors, as well as tinting the 
large windows on the main floor to re- 
duce UV ray damage to the books and 
furnishings. In addition, comfortable 
seating areas for reading and browsing 
were created by reconfiguring several 
library stack units. A separate group 
study space has also been developed. In 
addition, the individual study carrels on 
the main and the mezzanine floors have 
been wired for internet access. The 
library instruction classroom has been 
upgraded and reconfigured to enhance 
the library's information literacy class 
and additional instructional sessions. 

With the completion of the reno- 
vation, the library is once again a facility 
where the interior of the building 
complements the original exterior de- 
sign of the building and where we are 
able to provide library services in a 
modem, welcoming environment. 

To see the renovation in progress , see

In an updated Grafton Library, soft lighting, 
rich earthtones and comfortable seating 
set an atmosphere conducive to study. 



The Mary Baldwin College 



Learninc on a Roll 

Leaminc, an outreach of the Adult De- 
gree Program that brings education and 
training to Virginia business and indus- 
try, is proving more successful than even 
its most optimistic projections. It ex- 
ceeded its revenue goal by about $ 1 6,000 
last year, its first full year of operation. 

Some of the companies Learninc 
worked with include American Elec- 
tric Power, Augusta County Service 
Authority, Bausch-Lomb, Bell Atlan- 
tic, Chandler/Franklin/O'Brien, 
Comprehensive Family Services, 
DuPont, IBM, Kroger, Lewis-Gale 
Medical Center, MBC Managers 
Group, McKee Foods, Virginia 
Metalcrafters, Virginia Panel Corpo- 
ration, Virginia Power, Waynesboro 
DuPont Employees Credit Union, 
Wayn-Tex and Williams Supply. 

Leaminc works with companies to 
identify training needs and design pro- 
grams tailor-made for them. It offers 
courses in, among other things, work- 
place communication skills, managing 
change, leadership development for 
women, supervisory skills, sexual 
harrassment awareness, diversity in the 
workplace, business literacy, leading vs. 
managing, and human resource manage- 
ment certification. 

ADP Growing, Getting Younger 
and Getting Wired 

Annual statistics on ADP graduates show 
that the ADP student body continues to 
get younger. Thirty-eight percent of 
1999 graduates were in their 20s when 
they entered ADP, while 35% were in 
their 30s and only 27% were age 40 or 
older; in the early years of the program 
almost all students were age 35 or older. 

The statistics also indicate that most 
graduates continue to complete their de- 
grees within three to four years of coming 
to ADP. 

A study last year showed that ADP 
retention rates are running way ahead of 
the national average for nontraditional 
learners. On average, 78% of ADP stu- 
dents return the following year for more 
coursework; that compares to a national 
year-to-year adult student retention ra- 
tio of 61 %. Also, 44% of all ADP students 

The Mary Balowi.i College Magazine • Fai 



graduate from MBC within five years, 
while the national average for older learn- 
ers in 31%. 

As more and more adult learners are 
saying they want the convenience of on- 
line instruction, ADP on-line instruction 
continues to expand. Last fall ADP of- 
fered two on-line tutorials. This past 
spring eight sections were offered. Five 
more sections were offered in the sum- 
mer, and this semester of ADP has 13 
on-line courses. 

Another area of growth for ADP has 
been its Richmond center. Last year saw 
rapid growth in both the ADP and MAT 
student bodies in that part of the state. 
The center added three classrooms, a 
larger storage area and a small student 
lounge. It now takes up one whole side of 
the ground floor of the Libbie Square 
office building in Richmond. 

Widely Exhibited Artist Visits 
Campus as Fourth Doenges 
Artist/Scholar 

Melissa Miller, the latest Elizabeth 
Kirkpatrict Doenges Artist/Scholar, was 
on campus from November 9 to 1 2 , with 
a public presentation on November 10. 
She will return to work with students in 
more depth during the three-week May 
Term. 

Melissa Miller is widely known for 
her expressionistic paintings that use 
animals as metaphors for human obser- 
vations and dilemmas. She has exhibited 
work at many of the major museums in 
America. These include the Hirshhom 
and Corcoran Museums, the Brooklyn 
Museum of Fine Arts, the New Orleans 
Museum, the San Francisco Museum, 
and the Fine 
Arts Museums 
in Houston, 
Dallas and Ft. 
Worth. Her 
work has also 
been included 
in the presti- 
gious Whitney 
Biennial and the Venice Biennial. 

Born in Houston, Texas, in 1951, 
Miller received a bachelor of fine arts 
degree from the University of New 
Mexico in 1964. The artist is the recipi- 




ent of three individual artist fellowships 
from the National Endowment for the 
Arts. In 1987, Miller was named "Texas 
Artist of the Year," and in 1999, she 
received the Legend Award from the 
Dallas Visual Arts Association. Her works 
can be found in many public collections, 
including the Museum of Modem Art, 
the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the 
National Museum of Women and the 
Honolulu Contemporary Museum. 

Miller has been a visiting lecturer 
and guest artist at numerous universities 
and art institutes. She served as the dis- 
tinguished visiting professor of art at 
Southern Methodist University in 1 990- 
9 1 and most recently as visiting professor 
of art at the University of Texas, Austin. 
Her workshop experience includes 
Anderson Ranch, Oklahoma Arts Insti- 
tute and Skowhegan School of Painting 
and Sculpture. 

U.S. News and World Report 
Rates Mary Baldwin College in 
the Top Ten Once Again 

U.S. News and World Report has ranked 
Mary Baldwin College among the top ten 
regional liberal arts colleges in the South 
for the seventh year in a row. Competing 
with 130 other liberal arts colleges in the 
South, MBC was ranked sixth. In addi- 
tion to Mary Baldwin, three other Virginia 
colleges made the top ten in this category: 
Emory & Henry College, Roanoke Col- 
lege, and Eastern Mennonite University. 

"Rankings are not nearly as impor- 
tant as whether a college is right for an 
individual student - it is the 'fit' that 
determines how well a student will thrive, 
grow and learn. But of course, we are 
pleased that once again we have fared 
well in the rankings. It means that pro- 
spective students will take the time to 
look at Mary Baldwin to see if it is right 
for them," said Dr. Cynthia H. Tyson, 
president of MBC. 

U.S. News and World Report assesses 
colleges using objective statistical criteria 
such as student selectivity, faculty re- 
sources, graduation and retention rates, as 
well as academic reputation among col- 
lege presidents, deans and admissions 
directors. The college ranked particularly 
well in the area of academic reputation.

20th Anniversary of Award-Winning Ttieatre Wagon Film 



In honor of its 20* anniversary and a re- 
union of its cast, the film The Visit to t/ie 
'S>ep\Ad\e.r — or yisxmno 'Sitpvkh.ri in its origi- 
nal Latin was shown in Mary Baldwin 
College's Francis Auditorium on August 6. 

The Visitatio is a medieval music drama 
that relates the Gospel story of the first 
Easter. The Staunton-based Theatre 
Wagon, with Dr. Fletcher Collins as execu- 
tive producer, traveled to France in the 
summer of 1979 to film the medieval mas- 
terpiece in period costume in the 
10th-century abbey of Fleury, where the 
drama originated 800 years ago. 

Several members of the original troupe 
are connected with Mary Baldwin College. 
Dr. Collins is a professor emeritus of the- 
atre. Linda Dolly Hammack MBC '62, 
currently a member of the MBC Board of 
Trustees, served as producer. Custer LaRue 
Haws '74, a former voice instructor at MBC 
and now an internationally acclaimed solo- 
ist, sang the role of Mary Magdalene. Celia 
Flow Collins '61 was a guardian angel. 
Aurelia Crawford '74 sang the role of Mary 
Jacobi. Carl Edwards, who sang the role of 
Christ, and Curtis NoUey, in the role of 
John, have both served on the MBC fac- 
ulty. 

The film had its premiere at the Ameri- 
can Film Institute at the Kennedy Center in 
January 1980. It went on to win the Cine 
Golden Eagle Award and was a finalist at 
':he .American Film Festival. It has been 



aired on PBS stations across the country as 
well as at hundreds of colleges and univer- 
sities, conferences, and symposia. 

Dr. Collins, the author of two influen- 
tial books on medieval music-drama, 
transcribed and edited the "yviixano from the 
original manuscript. The production of the 
film was made possible through a grant from 
the National Foundation for the Humani- 
ties. Mary Baldwin College served as the 
fiscal agent for that grant. William Ferris, 
chairman of the National Endowment for 
the Humanities, writing to congratulate 
Dr. Collins on the 20* anniversary, said, 
"Twenty years ago, you led a talented troupe 
of singers and actors to San Benoit sur Loire 
in France where you produced and filmed 




ViiUUxViO 'S,tpv!uAm in the tenth century 
Abbey itself. You lovingly brought this 
ancient liturgical drama to life again on the 
very site where the play had originally been 
performed in the twelfth century. . . 

Over the years, the Endowment has 
sought to support projects that speak to the 
enduring wisdom and spiritual qualities of 
the humanities. Your film is one such 
project, and on those grounds alone con- 
gratulations would be due ! But the very fact 
that working with you on Vistitutio 'S,ep\ikh.-n 
was such a moving and significant experi- 
ence for the cast and crew that 20 years later 
they have traveled far and wide to be with 
you at your home today makes the anniver- 
sary especially [noteworthy]."

Four Alumnae Honored by College 

Four Mary Baldwin alumnae were recently granted trustee emerita 
status by the Board of Trustees: Caroline Rose Hunt '43, Margaret 
Hunt Hill '37, Bertie Deming Smith '46 and Anna Kate Reid Hipp 
'63. As trustees emeritae, they will have the right to attend all 
meetings of the Board of Trustees and will receive all Board of 
Trustee communications. 

In May, President Tyson traveled to Dallas, TX to recognize 
the exemplary service of sisters and former trustees Caroline Rose 
Hunt and Margaret Hunt Hill. 

Caroline Rose Hunt served on the Board of Trustees for 20 
years, from 1977 to 1998. In addition, she has helped to fund 
various building and renovation projects and has established two 
academic chairs. 

Margaret Hunt Hill served as a trustee from 1957 to 
1958. Like her sister, she has supported the college through 
the years by helping to fund capital projects, the endowment 
and general operations. 

Bertie Deming Smith served on the Board of Trustees for 
over 30 years, from 1963 to 1996. In 1983, MBC dedicated the 
Deming Fine Arts Center in her honor. In 1990, she created the 



first endowed professorial chair at the college, the Bertie Wilson 
Murphy Distinguished Chair in Business Administration. She 
received an honorary doctorate of humane letters from the college, 
as well as a Sesquicentennial Medallion and the Algernon Sydney 
Sullivan Award for "lasting contributions and inspirational lead- 
ership." In 1997, the college established a new award in her honor, 
the Bertie Murphy Deming Distinguished Service Medallion, to be 
given to those who have provided extraordinary service to the 
college over a significant period of time. She was the first recipient 
of that award. 

Anna Kate Hipp served on the Board of Trustees for over 25 
years, first joining in 1972. She served as the national co-chair of 
the college's $35 million Sesquicentennial Campaign, and was the 
first alumna to chair the board. In 1978, the college awarded her 
with the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award for nobility of character 
and unselfish service to the college and community. She was 
further honored with a Sesquicentennial Medallion in 1992 and 
an honorary doctorate of humane letters. In 1994, the Alumnae 
Association presented her with the Emily Wirsing Kelly Leader- 
ship Award. 



Alumnae Represent 
Mary Baldwin at 
College 
Inaugurations 

President Cynthia H. Tyson 
is often invited to participate 
in inaugural ceremonies for 
new presidents of other 
colleges and universities. If 
she is unable to attend, she 
often asks that a trustee, 
alumna, or friend of Mary 
Baldwin represent her and 
the college. The representa- 
tive dons academic gown, 
cap and hood, and takes part 
in the academic procession. 
Not only is the experience 
enjoyable for the alumna, but 
Mary Baldwin benefits from 
the public recognition of our 
standing in the academic 
community. Many thanks go 
to those listed to the right 
who have represented Mary 
Baldwin at college and 
university inaugurations 
throughout the country.

Bill Goodson - Special Forces 
Takes on ADP 



BY SARAH COX 



Bill Goodson ADP '98 is as proud of 
his degree from Mary Baldwin as he is 
of anything he's done - and that says a 
lot. 

In 1 972, after one year on a partial 
swimming scholarship at UNC- 
Asheville, Goodson joined the Army 
with plans to earn some money and 
return to college. Then he was re- 
cruited by the Green Berets and began 
what turned out to be a 26-year career 
with them, spending six to nine months 
of every year doing "action guy stuff," 
as he describes it. He was trained as a 
weapons and medical specialist, then 
was promoted into operations and 
eventually became a sergeant major. 
His work with the Green Berets has 
taken him to 33 countries, including 
Iraq, Lebanon, Spain and Norway. 

A highlight of Goodson's career 
was competing in the Best Ranger 
Competition in 1990. Rated the fourth 
most difficult contest in the world, it 
requires three days of competitions 
and allows about one-and-one-half 
hours of sleep. Goodson and his part- 
ner were in their late 30s - old men, he 
says, compared with the rest of the 
competitors. 

The first test, the Army PT test, 
required 82 push-ups in two minutes 
and running two miles in under 1 1 .40 
minutes. Then Goodson and his part- 
ner, wearing 55-pound backpacks, 
dragged a canoe one mile through a 
dry creekbed. They parachuted, com- 
peted in marksmanship, ran and 
walked 26 miles in under six hours 
(with the backpacks), navigated 
through woods at night, dropped out 
of a helicopter 400 yards offshore (with 
the backpacks), and finally, in Geor- 
gia summer heat, completed a 2.3 mile 
buddy run in 22 minutes wearing boots 
and all their equipment. Goodson 
came in fifth. 

In 1 995, needing a break from the 



constant travel, Goodson took an as- 
signment at Virginia Military Institute 
in Lexington, VA, teaching R.O.T.C. 
This seemed like a good time to finish 
the degree he had started so long ago, 
and people told him the best way to do 
that was through the Adult Degree 
Program at Mary Baldwin College. 

He was a bit skeptical at first: "Here 
is this private women's college which 
is pretty liberal and has no clue of the 
military," he thought. Then he met 
his counselor. Professor of Education 
and Adult Studies James Harrington, 
a former lieutenant in the Army in 
Vietnam. Together they mapped out a 
plan for Goodson's degree in business, 
settling on two courses per semester. 

After Goodson's tour of duty at 
VMI ended, he was sent to Norway, 
then to Turkey on training assign- 
ments. "His service took him to hot 
spots all over the world," recalled 
Harrington, "some of which he could 
tell us about and some of which he 
couldn't. He mailed and faxed and e- 
mailed his work from places like 
Bosnia. He did great work and almost 
always met his deadlines." 

Goodson was impressed with the 
college's flexibility. "Mary Baldwin said 
no matter where you go, we will con- 
tinue to help you with your education." 

In May 1998, Goodson walked 
across the stage at MBC to receive his 
degree and to share the 1998 Out- 
standing Adult Degree student award, 
having earned a 3.8 grade point aver- 
age. "When I was asked to join the 
Green Berets," he explained, "I knew 
this was the cream of the crop, and 
once I went through training and found 
out I could compete at any level, I 
made it a goal that whatever school 
the Army sent me to, I would try to be 
the distinguished honor graduate. I 
shot for number one." 

Goodson had j ust gotten settled at 




Bill Goodson ADP '98 with advisor, 
Dr.James Harrington (above) and with 
his son (below). 



Ft. Collins in Colorado Springs, CO, 
in 1998 and was running the day-to- 
day operations, when he learned that 
the Army planned to move him again. 
He decided it was time to try life on 
the civilian side. He is now living with 
his family in Colorado Springs and 
working in sales for Serle Pharmaceu- 
ticals. "Pharmaceutical companies like 
to hire military because of our ability 
to get things done. And one of the 
reasons I got this job was because of my 
four-year degree from Mary Baldwin." 
Goodson says the transition 
from military to civilian life has 
not been hard at all. He's just done 
what he's always done - welcomed 
the challenge.

A Day at the White House 



BY MARY MORRISON '95 



It is difficult to describe a 
typical day for me as the 
special assistant to the 
director of Oval Office 
Operations at the White 
House, but I can say this: it is 
never routine. I begin my day 
with tvjo things: the 
president's daily schedule and 
my "to do" list, yet these two 
items merely create a skeleton 
of how my long day may 
develop. 

After graduating from 
Mary Baldwin in the spring of 
1995 with a bachelor's degree 
in international business, 1 
applied for two different 
positions: a White House internship and 
a job teaching tennis with Club Med. Club 
Med offered me a position in a resort in 
Mexico in November of 1995. In July, I 
found out that I had been accepted as a 
White House intern for the fall session 
and selected for an assignment in the 
president's office. 

The director of Oval Office 
Operations, Nancy Hernreich, told me that 
one of the reasons I was accepted was 
because of my involvement with the Mary 
Baldwin Alumnae Association. This 
indicated to her that I had the ability to 
interact and work well with others. 

Nancy was also impressed with the 
high value I place on organization. This 
was just one of the many skills I learned 
from the late MBC professor Gordon 
Hammock. Four years later, I have realized 
how much Professor Hammock, "GH," 
truly prepared me for my career. In each 
of his classes he emphasized courtesy, 
neatness, honesty, kindness, humility, 
preparation and knowledge. 

I remember walking into the White 
House on my first day as an intern in early 
September 1995. I had grown up in 
Arlington, VA, right across the bridge from 
Washington. I had been by the White 
House millions of times - always standing 
on the outside of the fence. This time I 
was standing inside. The feelings I had 




that day of awe and amazement are the 
feelings I still have each morning when I 
walk through the White House gates. 

In November of 1995, 1 left the White 
House to teach tennis at Club Med in 
Huatuico, Mexico. There, I worked 18- 
hour days, met fascinating people from 
all over the world, used my fluent Spanish 
and Portuguese (my first language, my 
mother being from Brazil), and practiced 
my conversational French. 

I was there for six months, returning 
to Washington in May of 1996 to take a 
job in the President's Scheduling Office 
as the special assistant to the president's 
scheduler. The process and the formation 
of the president's schedule is more 
complicated than most people could 
imagine. I stayed in this job until June of 
1998, when I was promoted to my current 
position. 

As the special assistant to the 
director of Oval Office Operations, I serve 
two functions - as Nancy Hernreich's 
special assistant and as a member of a 
team. Oval Office Operations, whose 
primary function is to the assist in the 
day-to-day operation of the president's 
office. 

I serve as the liaison between the 
president, his friends and his family. They 
often call with various requests or 
messages they would like to get to the 



president. One thing I have 
learned is to say no graciously, 
which is definitely an art. The 
president's most precious 
commodity is time, and 
unfortunately there is never 
enough of it. 

It is an honor to spend 
part of my day greeting some 
of the president's visitors - 
foreign leaders, Hollywood 
stars, musical greats, 
politicians, sports teams, and 
most important to the 
president - everyday 
Amehcans. Some of the people 
I have met include Senator/ 
Astronaut Glenn, Queen Noor 
of Jordan, the late Princess Diana, U2, 
The Women's World Cup Soccer Team, 
Senator Dole, Pete Sampras, Whoopi 
Goldberg and Rosa Parks. Preparation 
for the president's weekly radio address 
to the nation is one of my main 
responsibilities. I compile the 100-person 
guest list, welcome the visitors to the 
White House, give them a tour of the West 
Wing and introduce them to the president. 
I have also had the opportunity to 
travel on behalf of the president to Brazil 
and to China, each time as part of an 
advance team. Advance teams are 
comprised of 8 to 10 people who travel 
ahead of the president and arrange 
logistics for an official presidential visit. 
Working in the White House has given 
me the chance to serve the nation and to 
feel that I am contributing in some small 
way to the administration of a president 
who cares deeply about this country, its 
people and the world. President Clinton 
has done a great deal for the American 
people and the international community. 
I am grateful for the opportunity to be 
here.

Wliite House interns sliould contact

White House Intern Program at 202-
