As you all know our class has elected special faculty who we feel have been especially close to our
class over the years.
We all know that our 1955 Honorary Vinnie Ferraro is our most popular lecturer when we go back for our “Back to School” mini every fall. Here’s the exciting news. He writes a blog. A what you say? A Blog called World Politics. What it means is that we can access that blog anytime just by signing up to receive it over our email. Then you can read it, save it, delete it, whatever, but you”ll be connected to Vinnie’s thinking and teaching of World Politics from your iphone or computer whenever you want.
To sign up for his blog go onto google and type in vferraro1971 and the form to sign up will become available.
Back when we were planning our 50th reunion (can we remember back that far?) we asked everyone to please send us their memories of Mount Holyoke. Back then everyone cooperated and actually did it. Not all of them could go into our presentation or our book but now on our website we have unlimited space so we thought we should share some more of these
Our latest memory comes from
Barbara Muehrcke Allen
Others are from Deb Hazzard Nash,
Gay Hartman, and Pat O'Keeffe, et al.
We hope that these entries will
inspire you to think of some of your memories to share with our class.

Gay and Wink are asking for photos from the rest of you. Please send us picutres of you and your family or you and other Alums as our roving photographer cannot cover the entire country.
Call us if you need instructions. You can send the actual printed photos or send them over the internet.
We are very flexible except in our knees!
Photos! We Need Photos!

See the Class of 2019 Laurel Parade!
Graduating seniors from the class of 1955 have had to look to their laurels this weekend as Mount Holyoke welcomed back after a half century or more 100 alumnae from the classes of 1890, 1895, 1900 and 1905.
The varied accomplishment and achievement of the graduates of these older classes has sent them all over the world during the fifty-odd years since they left Mount Holyoke.
The Mount Holyoke they knew has changed considerably, for their undergraduate days marked an exciting stage in the college’s development. The four ladies of the class of 1890, who headed yesterday’s alumnae parade, were back for their 65th reunion and graduated when Mount Holyoke was still officially a seminary.
All four of the returning members of the class of 1890 began their post-college careers as teachers. One taught history in the Simsbury High School for 36 years. The other three stopped teaching to marry, but all maintained an interest in community affairs, with local school boards and town committees.
Graduate work was first port of call for five of the eight members of the class of 1895 who have returned for their 60th reunion. Two took M.A.’s at Columbia and one studied for a year in Paris. One spent four missionary years in China returning to this country at the outbreak of the Boxer Rebellion.
Among the teachers in the class of 1905 is the first academic dean of Mount Holyoke.
