Faculty Emeriti Reunite for the Holidays

On December 17, President Cappy Hill opened her home to welcome faculty emeriti to celebrate the holidays. As many as 50 former professors braved the chill and ice to reconnect with friends and coworkers. Some of those in attendance at this annual event were colleagues from the English department, including Eamon Grennan, Lynn Bartlett, Bill Gifford, Colton Johnson, and Barbara Page. Deep in conversation at another end of the room were Anne Constantinople (psychology) and Robin Trainor (education). And also joining in the holiday spirit were Professor of Religion Bob Fortna, Glen Johnson from the political science department, and Bob Pounder from classics. Midway through the festivities, guests enjoyed holiday carols sung by Vassar’s student choir.
