From Charlotte Dean Smith Hill: When I saw the photo of Charlotte Smith Needham ’47 in my fall issue of the UMW magazine, I had great fun remembering my year in Betty Lewis Dorm, a former apartment house, located at the Sunken Road gate of then MWC. Charlotte Smith lived in suite 20, while I lived in suite 2. As I was often called to the one dorm phone, I became very aware of how many more boyfriends Charlotte Smith ’47 had than I. We also shared a biology class to some confusion until the professor became familiar with our middle names.
I always look forward to news of UMW although the “‘Great ’48” members seem to have stopped sending items. I stay busy with many activities including classes through Osher Lifelong Learning sponsored by the University of Southern Mississippi located in my hometown of Hattiesburg, MS. Lately I am relearning Mah Jongg. I will leave after Thanksgiving for a cruise to the Western Caribbean and the Panama Canal. I am fortunate to continue to be in touch with my MWC roommates, Sylvia Sheaks Moore and Marie Adams Griffith. I also receive newsy letters from a fellow third floor Ball classmate, Margaret Ruth Harrell Youngblood.
