Mimi Ruff Wolak wrote to say that she and her brother own several paintings byLiliane Flaherty Kirby ’26, who was featured in the last issue of The Longwood Update. The paintings were purchased by Mimi’s mother, the late Bernice Meany Ruff ’30. (Bernice, a longtime A.O.L. Alumnae Board member, served as Alumnae president in the mid-1950s.) Sadly, as the memorial column relates, Liliane died in February at her home in California.
When Karen Lux Michel called the Alumnae Office with a question awhile ago, she recalled a time when water lilies on the lagoon were placed in the form of the letters “A-O-L.”
