Friday Follies: A Dog in Abercrombie

This is Kathy, who belonged to the family of Carl Wischmeyer, EE professor and first master of Baker:

New Kathy

Many thanks to Mary Grace Wischmeyer Hamill for the great photo.

Kathy was the first dog to live in Baker House but here she sits at her desk in Abercrombie. I don’t think they let her teach; probably only graded papers.

Bonus: Good. Grief. It’s contagious.

    On the subject of dogs, have you ever written about Sobie?

    “Bonus: Good. Grief. It’s contagious.” Maybe a visiting acting troupe performing “The Leaning Italian Cypresses of Rice”? (Drat! I wish I’d learned Italian…)

    Was Kathy left pawed?
    If so, the inkstand was placed on the wrong side.

    Does anyone else detect that look in her eyes that says, “Good grief, why do humans make us take these idiotic pictures?)
