A Note From Sam Babbitt

January 24, 2010

January 2010

Dear Kirkland People –

These web pages – and all the things that can be reached through it – are a wonderful result of Kirkland women reaching out to each other to recollect (literally) their experiences of a time and place that was significant in their lives and which still informs the way they live today.

No erstwhile President could be prouder of this spontaneous activity than I. And I urge all who come here – whether to reminisce, to learn, or simply to browse – to explore what Kirkland College was, and what an impact it has on its alumni.

Furthermore, if you are one of those fortunate ones who came to Kirkland and who were enriched by that experience (not everyone had a good experience there) please join with your fellow alumni in contributing tangibles and intangibles to this living archive. Because it’s still true: KIRKLAND MATTERS.

With all best wishes,


[Editor’s note:  Samuel Fisher Babbitt was President of Kirkland College 1965-1978. He now resides in Rhode Island with his wife, Natalie.

    first face of Kirkland prospective students met……
