Mary Maples Dunn, former director of Radcliffe’s Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America and former acting dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, was honored at a Jan. 8 retirement party at Loeb House. Recognizing her contributions to the Schlesinger Library, the Radcliffe Institute, and Harvard University, friends and colleagues of Dunn’s established a fund in her name for book conservation and the digitization of books and manuscripts. The first project of the fund is to preserve the Schlesinger Library’s core book collection, the Woman’s Rights Collection. Dunn (above) receives a framed bookplate bearing her name. Harvard President Neil L. Rudenstine is seen in the background.
