It was a privilege to spend time with Betsy when she visited Wellesley, listening intently as she and Bud engaged the faculty in deep discussion about their research and teaching, seeing her meet and inspire the students she supported with her scholarship, and watching her joy reuniting with Knapp Interns. I'm awed by her commitment to Wellesley and all that she gave to the College--her wisdom, her leadership, her generosity-- and by how many people loved and admired her. Betsy's intellectual curiosity, her vision, her caring, filled more than one lifetime. Marisa Jaffe '95

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.
