From the Archives

A record number of readers (62 in all) wrote to Response to identify Vivian Larson, former head of Seattle Pacific's School of Education, and tell us about their time under her instruction.

“Miss Larson took a personal interest in each student in the education department when she was the director in the '50s,” writes Evogene Atkinson Stephens '58.

“I was so grateful for Vivian and her guidance in my student teaching days,” says Linda Brown Middlebrooks '64.

“A tremendous educator,” recalls Darold Tucker '57. “She taught me how to "nd the real teacher in me,” says Shirley John Rogers '51.

Congratulations to our sweatshirt winner, Marilyn Thomas '57!
