I am so proud of my mom! We had such a great weekend attending her reunion last May, after so many years of her saying that she wished she could go back to visit. We walked all over campus and attended most of the days’ activities as well as touring the Friends Meeting House and tracking down her grandparents’ former home on Ogden Avenue. The current owner graciously gave us a tour and they have since become fast friends after discovering that the owner summers in the same town my mom lives in on Cape Cod! I was so impressed with Swarthmore’s beautiful campus and loved walking around imagining my mom and my grandmother there as students so long ago. Thank you for this article highlighting an ordinary alum who is a pretty extraordinary person!
