A cover story in our June 9 issue caught the attention of Swarthmorean subscriber Nancy Dellmuth from the first line. We boldly led with “For the first time in anyone’s recollection, eight of Strath Haven’s graduating seniors have chosen Swarthmore College as their home for the next four years.” Technically correct, maybe, but Ms. Dellmuth reminded us of an even more remarkable achievement by her Swarthmore High School class of 1956. “We sent eight to Swarthmore College, and seven of us graduated,” she recounted recently. This, from a graduating class of 112. The Class of ’56 was not only gifted, but loyal too: five of the eight who matriculated in 1956 returned to the class’s most recent reunion.
