In Memoriam: Mildred Fossier, member of the Newcomb Class of 1935, died in New Orleans on December 4, 2011. A proud supporter of TFoNC and a donor to the legal efforts to save Newcomb College, she claimed kinship with Mrs. Newcomb. She was the first woman to serve as a department head in New Orleans city government and she was a prominent environmental activist.

Desperately Seeking 1938 Newcomb College Class Ring
A 1938 alumna writes that she could not afford a class ring during the Depression but that she always wanted one.
In reply to our offer to join her in her search, she writes, “Thank you so much for your kind response to my plea. I have literally been searching for years without success, and your note gives me new hope that after all this time something good may happen.”
She has longed for that class ring for 73 years.
She has looked everywhere. Adler’s. Balfour. Yes, they did have them, but no, they did not keep the forms. Her class ring can’t be replicated.

In our excitement about new programs like those described by Mary Ann Miya and all the new things that are planned for the DaisyChain and our website
(http://www.newcomblives.com), we must not forget that TFoNC still has an outstanding obligation. We absolutely must retire our legal debt.
Before we begin to dedicate major funds to future plans, we must focus all our efforts on raising the necessary funds to accomplish this. The TFoNC Board, aswell as alumnae and friends who see this obligation as a priority, realize that we must do so in as short a period as possible.
It is customary for colleges to ask for support during Homecoming season. This month, which would have included Newcomb College’s Homecoming Week, TFoNC asks you to honor Newcomb College and the stand that TFoNC took in its defense. This especially is the time for each of us to commit to doing our necessary part.
Please be a donor to our Debt Retirement Campaign and help us finish this one last task. Be with us as we plan for our future and celebrate our past. Remember that “Through Us, Newcomb Lives!”
