A Note From Merose Hwang

Posted By Administration, Monday, August 19, 2019

Recent Hiram graduates, Robin Peshick ‘16, Alex Bryant, Sara Shearer ‘17, Maya Watkins ‘17, and most recently, Scott Traylor ‘18. have been gathering weekly over the summer with “Shut Up & Write” an international organization operating in 137 different countries. I started up a chapter in Northern Ohio 2 years ago (Cleveland, Shaker Heights, and Ohio City) and some of my students discovered me on meetup.com. These alumni have been joining us on a weekly basis to continue their writing and publishing passions. 

 You can find out more about the organization here:

A Note About Dr. Anthony F. Lalli ‘51

Posted By Administration, Monday, August 19, 2019

Dr Anthony F Lalli ‘51 died Jan 10, 2018 aged 88 at home in Canada.  

Earning his BA in English at Hiram, Tony also enjoyed playing clarinet in various musical societies. He obtained a medical degree from The University of Chicago Medical school and upon completion, interned at Toronto Hospital for Sick Children. While there he met and married his wife Donna Brown. They began married life by returning to Hiram and moving into Bonnie Castle Inn; they considered it a very elegant start. Tony was the physician and general practitioner at Hiram College and for the surrounding area.  He returned to the University of Chicago and completed his internship in Radiology.  In 1963, he accepted a position at the University of Michigan as Associate Professor.  He joined the Cleveland Clinic as Head of Diagnostic Radiology in 1970 where he remained until his retirement.  He developed many innovative radiological techniques such as percutaneous lung and renal biopsy. He authored many medical books and over 70 papers and later became an expert on contrast media reactions.  His expertise was recognized by many awards and honors throughout his career. He served on many National and Local committees including Hiram’s President’s Council on Science Initiatives. He received the Hiram Lifetime Achievement Award in ’96.  On retirement, Tony and Donna divided their time between the towns of Niagara-on-the-Lake in Canada and Corofin, County Clare Ireland.  Tony’s interests included a passion for older Bentleys, reading and travel.  He is survived by his wife Donna, daughters Cynthia and Alison, sons-in-law John and Rick, and Grandchildren Olivia and Anthony.  Though his time in Hiram was at the beginning of his medical career and happy marriage, it remained a touchstone for the remainder of his life. He described it as “A time of simple and bright happiness, made full by lifelong friends.”

I have been happily married for 33 years, have been practicing dentistry for 34 years, have two adult children and still live in Chicago. My husband is a professional basketball coach and an energy consultant.  We come to Ohio about twice each year and will be doing so even more since our daughter is moving to Cincinnati. Our son lives and works in Palo Alto. We stay in touch with several Hiram Alums and try to see them as often as possible.

A Note on Behalf of Patricia Stief

Posted By Administration, Thursday, August 15, 2019

Hello…

I am the mother of one of your graduates in the 1st Nursing class of 2011 and mother-in-law to another J  They are Devan (Stief) Lewis and Luke Lewis

Was not sure if they have stayed in touch through the years or not with Hiram but I know that Hiram played a huge part in their professional and personal life. (They met thru the Nursing program)

They both have been with Cincinnati Children’s since graduation and I am very proud of them both in their career path.

They have two beautiful boys now. Their youngest was diagnosed a year ago with Cerebral Palsy so their life as nurses has come into play within their home life now.

Recently, Devan actually saved a 2 year old from their community pool that was found lifeless in a separate pool from where she was.

Just very proud of the success that they have achieved which I believe was provided by Hiram College and their curriculum.

 

Sincerely,

Patti Stief

New position and new publication for Roger Adkins '95

Posted By Roger A. Adkins, Monday, August 5, 2019
I have recently accepted a newly created position at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. I will serve (starting in September 2019) as the Executive Director of Global and Career Education, overseeing global learning (study away/abroad, international student and scholar services, ESL programs, and Earlham programs that serve students from across the country, such as the Border Studies program based in Arizona and Mexico) as well as career education (internships, intentional learning outcomes in on-campus student employment, career readiness, professional development, etc.). The move brings me closer to family members who still live in western Ohio and also situates me within a Quaker institution where the community values align very well with my own: promoting peace, social justice, nonconfrontational conflict resolution, and global understanding. I have spent the past four years serving as Director of International and Cultural Education at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, where I have offered a study abroad course on folklore and social justice in England and Scotland. I also recently published a coauthored book chapter on decolonizing approaches in education abroad programming (it appears in Education Abroad and the Undergraduate Experience, edited by Brewer and Ogden, 2019) and am now at work on a few other projects on decolonizing and queering approaches in education abroad. My Hiram education continues to serve me well, and I have found my professional home in liberal arts colleges as well.

Latest Publication/European And UK Travels

Posted By Barbara Hines Cochran, Monday, August 5, 2019
Updated: Sunday, August 25, 2019

My translation from Italian, Three Days in May: A New Columbus Story, originally written in that language by Professor Emerita of History and Geography, Ilaria Luzzana Caraci, was published by Amazon in February 2019. I am now working on the translation of another of her books, this time on the history of explorations and discoveries. Professor Caraci and her husband hosted me for a week in Rome in May 2017, after which I headed to Paris where I spent time in Montmartre, hanging out along the streets below Sacré-Cœur Basilica, and more than 4 hours at the Louvre. I also had the good fortune to go through and around Notre Dame Cathedral again, before it caught fire in April 2019. I then crossed the border into the UK at the Manchester Airport and had a pleasant train ride to Liverpool, where I went to a very high-, positive energy pub for dinner, and the following day to “The Beatles Story” museum, which is located along the Mersey River. From there, I went, again on the train, to Ryhl, Wales, a resort town on the Irish Sea, where I was the guest of retired literary translator, Chantal Low, and her husband, novelist Roderick Low. We traveled all over Northern Wales, to places like the fortress town of Conway, and to the top of the Great Orme, where previous visitors had spelled out, using large rocks, the word “OHIO” (where I currently live) on the side of a high, very green, massive hill. It was, at that moment, a most unwelcome reminder that I would soon have to return home. I spent my 65th birthday touring the entire city of London, after a delightful 3-day B & B tour of the Cotswalds. Also in London, I visited the Sigmund Freud Museum at 20 Maresfield Gardens, where the inventor of psychoanalysis saw a few patients and lived out his final days, after paying massive taxes to the Nazis so he and family members could leave Vienna. The following day, I headed back to the United States.
