Rabbi Allen Secher and Ina Chatkin Albert-Secher left their Montana home to visit Boston. We had a nostalgic day on campus, with a special visit to the archives. Besides oohing and aahing over slides from the old days, we reviewed the memoirs of Tania Grossinger ’56. As if that weren’t rich enough, I spent a week this summer on Long Island with Beverly Sachs Silpe, P’83, a classmate who graduated a year early.

Eleanor Pam was elected president of the Veteran Feminists of America, a national organization of pioneers in the women’s movement. During her career as a professor and administrator at City University of New York, Eleanor was an activist in issues related to women and violence: sexual harassment, rape, domestic violence and women in prison. She also served for eight years on former Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s Commission to Combat Family Violence. Now retired and a snowbird, Eleanor toggles between her homes in Delray Beach, Fla., and Manhasset and Easthampton, N.Y. Last year, she welcomed her fourth grandchild into the family.
