Alison made a real difference to the lives of anyone she met. She showed incredible generosity of spirit to my sister and then to me. I shall never forget the most amazing weekend and dinner in the Hamptons. Thank you, Alison.

We grew up in Roslyn in the 50's, and I recall what a strong girl, Alison was. We were in Brownies together, and had many play dates. I was in awe when I came to her house and her dad, Bob had a the biggest collection of LP records. It was quite something and it was certainly very sophisticated. I moved from Roslyn during the fall in 1959, to New York City, but was always was kept informed of my childhood friends. Learning over the year I knew how extraordinary Alison had become in her adult life. My solemn sympathy to her daughters and her partner. She was a trailblazer her entire life.

Alison was a great friend and mentor for many of us... She valued the depth of the person, regardless of status. She lives on in all of the scholarship she fostered.

Alison and I met forty years ago, working together on projects related to equity. We remained friends and colleagues ever since. In the past few years we would run into each other in the Hamptons while buying produce and vow to get together soon for a long talk. We never did... Cherish the good ones while they are with us.

I am so sad and shocked to learn about Alison. We went to the US Open together; we appeared on panels together; she gave me invaluable help and support for Antioch College and also for the Shirley Chisholm Project of Brooklyn Women's Activism. A brilliant thinnker, she was such a wonderful colleague, mentor, friend staunch anti racist feminist. I am so glad she lived, but am so sad she died.
