Turning point: When her future husband, the late John Leyden ’53, engineered a blind date with her during their freshman year by telling another boy to ignore her invitation to a dorm party in Revell Hall. Influence: The school “opened my eyes to the rest of the country and the world … hearing ideas from people

whose background was different from mine.” Memory: I was a day student, and one year on Mountain Day, we walked by my aunt’s house in Northfield and my grandmother was sitting on the porch. I yelled, “Hi, Grandma!” and waved to her. There followed many more “Hi, Grandmas” as we walked along.
