Harvard in those years was definitely the richer, more privileged institution; Radcliffe the poor relation. The boys’ accommodations in the Harvard houses were much nicer and more spacious than our shoe-box rooms in the Radcliffe dorms. We had to wait on tables and clean our own rooms; no work was required of the boys.

Then we met the students. I’ll never forget my first class: rows of wide-eyed faces, everyone sitting perfectly straight and straining to make a good impression. At 24, I was not much older than my students and I wanted to establish a firm hand. Several later confessed that they were frightened of me. Little by little, they realized that I was something of a “softie,” and I discovered that they were not such “goodie-two-shoes.”

I see ACS in three colors: green, blue and light beige. Green stands for all the lush gardens and parks which I have very vivid memories of. It transformed the space into a retreat for discoveries. Blue is for the open sky that was visible everywhere on campus. It made everyone aim high. Light beige is for the buildings which projected openness.
