I had an interesting Skidmore experience at a Starbucks in NYC while interviewing a prospective student. When we were wrapping up our meeting, a young wo - man approached us. She had overheard part of our conversation and wanted to share the fact that she was a very recent Skidmore grad. Small world! DOROTHY KANRICH SANDFORD 333 E. 53RD STREET, APT. 7E

last year in an effort to attain a retirement goal of becoming “a low-maintenance house guest.” In November Mary Lee Duff and Nancy Hantman visited Saratoga Springs and the Tang Museum. The visit coincided with the first anniversary of the cancer death of dear friend Deena Glass, and they were anxious to view the Tang’s Jewel Thief exhibit, to which Nicolas Weber, a childhood friend of Dee’s and executive director of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, donated two wonderful Anni Albers screen prints, which will be part of the Skidmore permanent collection. Laurie Greaves Landreth, also a class- mate and close friend of Dee’s, has fond memories of taking art class with her and learning about color from studying Josef and Anni Albers.


Sandy Smith Dovberg and husband Norman met Adele Finger and husband Doug at Skidmore’s Celebration Weekend in October and spent a wonderful day enjoying all the free events. They were particularly impressed with the new din- ing hall and wondered if they could put on the “freshman 15” in a single day of eating there. Sandy enjoyed reconnecting with Adele, who lives in Bennington, VT. A longtime Albany resident, Sandy, who stays extremely busy with her painting and silversmithing, enjoys seeing Skid - more art faculty at vari- ous art receptions. Down - hill skiing and swimming provide diversion and keep her healthy. She was impressed with Skid more’s Zankel Music Center and with what is being pro- duced in the art studios on campus.
