If you know Alice Hummer, you’ll have an idea of how difficult it was to convince her that there should be a photograph of her in this, her last issue as editor of Wellesley magazine after 24 years at the College. And you do know Alice—from her witty and thoughtful editor’s letter in every issue; from the stories in the magazine that she carefully selects to make sure that as many alums as possible see themselves and their interests in its pages; maybe personally from your role as a volunteer or employee at the College; and quite possibly from hitching a ride on her golf cart during one of the 23 reunions she worked. Alice likes to say that she’s a “behind the scenes” kind of person. But my fellow senior associate editor, Catherine O’Neill Grace, and I must insist on pulling Alice out from behind the scenes, just this once, to take a bow. Thank you, Alice, for everything you’ve done. The magazine and Wellesley are better for it.
