Now in its third year, the Ashford Fellowship program sponsors 12 outstanding scholars in fields ranging from music composition to entomology. Theodore H. Ashford ’58 and his sons Theodore III ’86 and Timothy ’88 gathered with the group of fellows on Nov. 1 at the Faculty Club for a celebratory luncheon.
