Amy Markovitz Zeckhauser CW’41 writes, “In case you are interested in the recollections of a 97-year-old alumna, this is it: Attending my 75th reunion last May was indeed a highlight of my long life. It was exciting to be recognized, but I was disappointed that I was the only one from the Class of ’41 attending. The campus grew from when we in the College for Women were more or less confined to Bennett Hall—Logan and Houston, along with other buildings, were off-limits to us. Our freshman handbooks cautioned us women to be aware of our deportment on campus! The advent of Pearl Harbor shortly after graduation changed our lives. I did not complete my master’s in history of art and, instead, worked for an engineer doing war work and also became a nurse’s aide. The nursing led me to serving at Camp Lee during the Battle of the Bulge. After the war and my marriage, I made the most of the security I gleaned from my college education. Perhaps not as an undergraduate, but after graduation one realizes that learning the facts in a course is just a part of one’s education. So I became a ‘professional volunteer,’ organizing and chairing drives and events and participating on meaningful boards. Today’s college women may look down on this lifestyle, but I know there is a place for such full-time volunteerism. P.S. I didn’t pass typing!”

Paula Netzky Spiegel CW’60 writes, “On March 1, the Beaumont Retirement Community of Bryn Mawr held its first University of Pennsylvania reunion. Over 40 residents attended and enthusiastically celebrated their days at Penn. Those days were fondly remembered as a defining period in their lives. There were many favorable comments regarding Penn’s growth in physical stature from the time when we were students until now. The College for Women, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Law School were most heavily represented, but there were those from other departments as well. Our oldest graduate was from the Class of ’41, and the youngest was from the Class of ’68. Alumni Relations supplied us with assorted Penn memorabilia, which added much to the celebratory atmosphere.”
