My wife, Cleo Wombacher
Gihbsson 54, and I read with great interest the RIT magazine,
and we have finally come up with the answer to a question about
who are in the picture of the four women fencers (spring 2002).
The enclosed clipping from the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle,
dated Feb. 15, 1953, shows that the two women in the center are
Ellie Rulof and Diana Kleppinger of the RIT team; the other two
women are members of the St. Lawrence University team.
I am also glad that
you honored Hettie L. Shumway for her effort to get NTID to RIT.
During most of my time in Rochester (1950 to 1953), I lived at
their house. She was a fantastic person.
