    College Marshall (#1) Victora Brown and honorary Marshall (#2) Dorothy Smardack Palmer, class of 1962 representing the 50-year class, lead faculty members and students into commencement on Monday May 21, 2012.
    Behind #1 is Evelyn Freeman

    Allison, please double check #1 is Victoria Brown. I think my memory serves me correctly.

      #1 definitely is Victoria Brown, professor emeritus in History. She was honored at commencement that year because she was retiring after 25 years of teaching at Grinnell. I attended commencement that year because my cousin was graduating and was thrilled to see my favorite professor (and honors thesis advisor) after so many years.
