Historical Faculty Memorial Minutes

It is the practice of the faculty of Amherst College for a small group of colleagues to compose a reminiscence when an active or retired colleague has recently passed away.  It is read at a faculty meeting, after which a moment of silence is observed.  Copies of the "minute" are then presented to the family and placed in the college archives. The minutes for Elizabeth Bruss and Anne Lebeck appear below.

The Pioneer Women of Amherst College 1962-83

During that same period, there were a number of other women on the faculty as visiting lecturers at the college. Information on the visitors can be found in the archives of Amherst College.
