In Memoriam: We are sad to announce that Janet Hickman Mosbacher (NJC ‘46) passed away in April. A self-proclaimed “compulsive reader,” she was the very first alum to respond to the first issue of this newsletter, with a note of encouragement for Friends of Rutgers English. Since then, she corresponded with us many times, always with insight and humor. She will be missed.
