    Hello Nancy, my grandaughter Sara came across your comment on the picture of Mt. Holyoke seniors on Mt. Holyoke on Mountain Day. My mother, Helen Sumner, actually graduated from Mt. Holyoke in 1931 and came to Jamaica in 1937. She was dedicated to her college and never missed a major reunion.
    How did you come across the picture? Are you especially interested in Mt. Holyoke?
    You have my email now – could you let me have yours?let’s keep in touch!

  2. I am a freelance writer, working on a memoir in which Helen Sumner of Lowell, MA, figures briefly. I believe she graduated in 1936 or 1937. In 1937 she assumed a position as a teacher at a school founded by Dorothy Hughes Simmons in Jamaica. Do you have any information about her at Mt. Holyoke that you can share with me? I was a penpal of Helen (nee Sumner) Atrikian’s second daughter Margaret. It was she who told me her mother’s maiden name. Mrs. Abrikian and her sister visited my mother and me in September 1960 in Narragansett, RI. Margaret (nee Abrikian) Zaffaroni married an Italian pharmacologist who was on a post-doc at Harvard when Margaret attended Mt. Holyoke from 1961-1963. Margaret has been living in Italy since 1964. I am grateful for any help you can give me.
