Ms. Kaufman was one of my favorite teachers at MHC. I remember showing her a self portrait in pencil pre-freshman year and a self portrait post first semester-- a drawing more intense and serious. I was growing up and she was supporting the emerging woman I was becoming. Cheers to Marjorie! Love, Carrie (Upshaw) Cardwell, Mt Holyoke Class of '82.

Ms Kaufman was an inspiring teacher and a loving soul. As a member of the Class of 1962, I was thrilled to have been able to share my 50th reunion with Ms. Kaufman as she celebrated her 90th birthday. What a joy it was to see her there - full of life and ideas. She leaves a legacy of MHC women who were influenced by her profound wisdom and thirst for knowledge. I am proud to have been one of them.

Fifty-three years have not dimmed my memories of my Freshman English Lit class with Ms. Kaufman. She had a wonderful influence on me and I treasure those memories.

As my advisor and my professor, Miss Kaufman was enlightening, entertaining, and inspiring. I admired her well-placed irreverence as much as her love of literature.

Her remarkable voice continues, in our hearts and in our memories, and I am certain, in the Universe we have not yet discovered. Judy Emerson

I will never forget her and her brilliance.

She was the best English teacher I ever had. Her 19th-early 20th century British lit class was phenomenal. She was so enthusiastic, and so brillant. She opened up the world of Virginia Wolfe for me.

Ms. Kaufman was one of the best, if not the best, profressor when I attended Holyoke. She made Gravity's Rainbow comprehensible and fun. She both challenged and encouraged her students to do their best. Allison Thomas '81

Miss Jean Kaufman, So many years later I can still see you and feel your influence on me. Urging efforts to excel, to take on challenges, to look carefully and thoughtfully at what I read. And always with a smile even while demands were high and critiques not always flattering. You are a lasting part of who I am. Thank you.

Miss Kaufman taught me ('59) and both my daughters ('83 & '86), a fact which delighted her, and us too. She had a remarkable presence and is at the top of my most memorable teachers list.
