Knapp interns at Wellesley


Edited: Jun 30, 2017

I had the privilege of managing 2 former Knapp interns, working with several others and the Knapp intern program, as well as attending an intern reunion a few years ago. It was an absolute delight to see Betsy with these recent alums, each remarkable in her own way, witnessing how the program she sponsored had helped set directions in their hopefully long, interesting careers and lives.


I am so sorry to hear that Betsy's time has been cut short. A consolation is working in a building that houses one of the The Knapp Centers, which means having a constant, welcome reminder of a brilliant, generous, and truly kind woman. We will miss her.

    Betsy was such a magnificent woman! She will be missed for her warmth, intelligence, insight and drive.  Her smile brightened a room. Her words made us sit and listen intently. My sincerest condolences to Bud and the entire family.  I hope the incredible memories she left will provide much comfort at this sad time.

    Betsy was a remarkable woman and she served as a generous role model for so many of us. I first met her when I joined C-200 and we realized that were in the same 5900 Wilshire Building. She was kind and innovative. A talented woman loved by many of us who will miss her forever.
