Radcliffe Honors Helen Keller '04
Helen Keller, Radcliffe '04, last Saturday attended the dedication of a garden which will be named in her honor. The garden is part of the proposed Radcliffe College Graduate Quadrangle.
At the ceremony President Wilbur K. Jordan and Dean Bernice B. Cronkhite paid tribute to Miss Keller in recognition of her international reputation as one of the most outstanding women of the 19th and 20th centuries. The site of the Graduate Quadrangle is on the corner of Ash and Brattle Sts., next to the home of President Jordan.
At the Alumnae Day Luncheon in Memorial Hall, preceding the dedication, which Miss Keller also attended as guest of honor, it was aannounced that a total of $163,000 has been given during the past year to the Alunmea Fund. The Fund in turn will be used toward the $2,000,000 goal for the Graduate Quadrangle.
Miss Keller received her A.B. degree cum laude in 1904 and was later made an honorary member of the Radcliffe chapter of Phi Beta Kappa in 1933.
