Mystery solved

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.
