In Memoriam
Linda A. Cavanaugh, senior administrative assistant to MHC's admission director from 1990 to 2000, died October 2 at the age of fifty-seven. A lifelong resident of Holyoke, she is survived by her husband, Michael, two siblings, four children, and four grandchildren.

Ruth E. Douglass '23, MHC Professor Emeritus of Music, died September 21 at the age of ninety-nine in her home in Granville, New York. As a student, Douglass majored in music and was known for her fine singing voice. After a period of study in Berlin, she joined the music faculty at the College in 1923 and continued teaching at MHC until her retirement in 1967. Douglass taught voice at Green Mountain College, Castleton State College, and at home for several years after retirement. Even when failing health forced her to stop teaching, she continued to oversee music at the Congregational church she attended. She is survived by a nephew, two grandnephews, and three great-grandnieces.
