Bryn Mawr’s Mary E. Garrett Fellowship for study in Europe was awarded to Marie Reimer ’97, who had been a graduate student at Bryn Mawr for two years. In its account of the fellowship, The New York Times noted that Miss Reimer—whose work was “of unusual brilliancy”—had been “one of the graduate students living in Denbigh Hall, and lost all her property in the fire on Sunday [3/16], except her thesis for the doctor’s degree, which was rescued by a member of the faculty.”

After her fellowship year in Berlin, Dr. Reimer joined the Barnard faculty, where she taught organic chemistry until her retirement in 1945.
