Marjorie was a remarkable woman and it was a great privilege to have known her.

The Mount Holyoke College class of 1962 who was privileged to have Marjorie as an honorary member and who celebrated her 90th birthday with her at their 50th reunion in May remembers her with affection and the greatest respect for her scholarship and love of teaching and learning, Beatrice Szekely, class of 1962 President

The Frances Perkins Scholars community will mourn the loss of Marjorie and her endless enthusiasm for life-long learning, and the lessons that can be learned at every stage of life.

I first met Marjorie at a club event at which she introduced us to the FP program. Later, while living in South Hadley with my husband, Irving Eisley, I got to know her better over dinners at our house and in the Loomis community. She was always the life--and certainly the voice--of the party. We have lost a very dear, bright, funny and generous lady.

As a new MHC student in the mid-1950's, I was impressed and inspired by Marjorie's progressive politics; they informed everything she did in the classroom and out! In later years I was lucky to know as a friend as well as admired professor. Her wit and wisdom will linger with me, her determined spirit provide a model for courageous aging.

Marjorie was a force to be reckoned with! So generous of her time, talent and spirit. I came to know her through the youth orchestra where she always donated her time to our many events. She had a twinkle in her eye and a zest for life. She will be missed!

I already loved to read when I got to MHC at the age of 17, but I LEARNED to read from Jean Sudrann and Marjorie Kaufman. I was an English major and advisee of Miss Sudrann's and became a friend (and admirer) of both Jean and Margery. From those two fabulous women I also learned how to care for a garden, the art of entertaining, and how to make a proper gin martini (after I reached drinking age!). I will savor our conversations about travel and books for the rest of my life.

David and I always enjoyed running into Marjorie at MHC events, including the recent musical event on John Cage, as well as around town. She was a delightful, amazing, erudite woman who was already with some witty words and a willing smile. We will definitely miss her along with the other amazing MHC faculty who have gone on before her. We are sure she will be warmly welcomed in her new arena and if there isn't a book group there already, it won't take her long to start one! It was indeed an honor to know Marjorie.

I never had her as a teacher but I wish that I had! Cindy White Morrell '68
