The “Priestess”

I was scanning through the Baltimore Sun’s archives when I found a few old articles on our Marcia. priestess-1

Of course, I can never resist playing around with images, so I added the portrait of “Mr. Smith”, which Marcia loved. She had persuaded the Library Committee to buy the painting, and she said that if she ever left the Faculty, she’d secretly pack him into her suitcase. But she didn’t have to, because the physicians made her a gift of the portrait.


When Marcia died, there was an announcement of her death, obit 1

and then after her funeral, there was another piece in the Baltimore Sun, talking about the event. obit 2

It is always fascinating to find contemporary writings about our well-known members and staff.
