Dr. Linda Buzzeo
Best (1972), Professor of English at Kean University in Union, NJ, is currently
writing a book about the Ladycliff. She anticipates publication prior to the
Annual Luncheon and will display the book at the event.
Linda's primary reason for pursuing this project was her deep concern about the absence of material on Catholic education for women in literature in the field of education. Her work has involved indepth research of the College archives, which are housed at Mount Saint Francis in Peekskill; interviews with alumnae; materials collected from alumnae, and visits to sites and organizations, such as the Highland Falls library, that contain artifacts and furnishings from the campus.
The book will offer a chronology of photographs as a background for historic content and personal reflections. The book's memoir and scrapbook motif will document the birth and passing of the institution and convey impressions about the experiences of those who studied there.
