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.
