Florence Cushing ’74 died at her summer home in Norwell, MA.  One of the original three alumnae trustees in 1887, she served on the board from 1887 until 1893 and from 1906 until 1912, at which time she was elected to life membership on the board.  Retiring in 1923, Miss Cushing became the college’s only trustee emerita, a title created especially for her.
