Founder’s Month 2001 Draws Alumnae Nationwide

In celebration of Ellen Browning Scripps’ birthday (October 18th) and the College’s 75th anniversary, alumnae hosted events in 15 different cities across the country. The events provided an opportunity to update alumnae on the state of the College, and, this year, to gather together in an unusually difficult time for the nation.

We would like to thank all of the alumnae around the world who helped us to produce the Founder’s Month events, both as speakers and as hostesses. It is their support and generosity that enables the Alumnae Association to maintain Mary Carter ’99, Sara Chatfield ’99, Jana Davis ’96, Emily Rankin ’97 and Kali Morgan ’97and strengthen its relationship with one another and Scripps College. Some of this year’s speakers included entrepreneur Ruth Markowitz Owades ’66; the Honorable Judith McConnell ’66; Ellen Payne ’81, managing editor of Glamour; President Nancy Y. Bekavac; Connie Butler ’84, curator for the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art; Distinguished Alumna Rosemary Radford Ruether ’58; and renowned photographer Laurie Schweitzer Brown ’59. Our appreciation is also extended to our hostesses, Susan Yunker Armstrong ’66, Janet Doty Vincze ’78, Mary Ferman Bean ’67, Tammy Kuhn Hertz ’82, Leslie Lassiter ’77, and trustee Willem Mesdag.
