A St. Lawrence alumna is featured in Cottage Life, a Canadian magazine,
in an article about how "Canada's oldest girls' camp inspired a coterie of
wilderness-savvy women cottagers."
Vivien Hannon '43, of West End, North Carolina, and her friend Mary Russe,
are described in the story -- which includes numerous photos -- as "just two
of the many woman cottage leaseholders on Cache Lake, a matriarchy of strong,
independent and vocal females dedicated to keeping their cottages simple and rustic.
What links this unique community is a shared experience, a beloved childhood
memory: Before they were cottagers, they were campers at Northway Lodge,
Canada's oldest summer camp for girls."
Hannon, who earned her degree from the University in psychology and graduated
Phi Beta Kappa, was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma as a student. Very active
as a volunteer for the University, she is the widow of former Board of Trustees
Chair John Hannon Jr. '44. Her gifts to the University have made possible the
Vivien Gardner Hannon Career Library and an internship fellowship for students.
