Funeral Service Held For Edith Johnson
Funeral services for Edith Morse Johnson '96 were held yesterday in Appleton Chapel.
Miss Johnson, who was 92, was one of the oldest Radcliffe alumnae. A Bursar of the College in the 1890's, she lived most of her life on Phillips Place, around the corner from the Radcliffe Yard.
As Bursar, Miss Johnson annually took Radcliffe diplomas to the Harvard Yard to be signed by President Eliot, whom she knew well. Attending the inauguration of Radcliffe President Mary I. Bunting in 1960, she remarked, "I remember the Commencement here in Sanders the year Mr. James received his honorary degree from President Eliot."
Mrs. McGeorge Bundy, wife of the special assistant to the President, was in Cambridge yesterday to attend the funeral.
