Mom is going to her 45th college reunion this weekend. I found this slide from her graduation day in 1963 and scanned it. She and her three sisters all are alumnae of Smith College (classes of '59, '61, '63 and '68).
But it doesn't stop there. My cousin Leila graduated in 1992: a third generation Smith legacy, for our grandmother Athalia (Ogden) Barker was Smith class of '34. Her two sisters Margie and Esther were Smith '28 and '30. Margie, Mom and my aunt Marty shared the same 5 year reunions. The picture of Margie and Marty, below, was taken in June, 1968, the year Marty graduated and also the year she married my Uncle Colin.
There probably should be a Smith weather vane over the family homestead. In 1975 when Smith celebrated its centennial, my cousins and I all got "Smith College: A Century of Women on Top" T-Shirts. Must be why we all turned out so progressive.
