Ceil Welna's minutes for the meeting on May 6, 2007 serves to lead off the 2007 minutes series.  She is stepping down as secretary of the EA after 11 years.  During that span,  she served as faithful historian and recorder of the happenings and events of the Assembly and kept members informed of all of that.  Many thanks to Ceil Welna indeed.  David De Nuccio is the newly elected secretary.  Perhaps he will also serve 11 years!  Good luck!

Following is a sneak preview of our April 15th, 2008 meeting.

Dr. Virginia Hale, former chairperson of the English Department at the University of Hartford, shall discuss the life of Beatrice Auerbach

Dr. Hale writes:  From 1938 to 1965, Beatrice Fox Auerbach was chief executive of G. Gox & Company, Hartford's premier retail outlet, and the sixth largest privately owned department store in the country.  She was a pioneer in labor relations, employee medical and retirement plans; she was the first in U.S. retailing to hire blacks in other than menial jobs and she provided advancement opportunities for women.  She was famously generous to the arts, health services , education and civil causes.  But she was far more than her public persona. 
A grandmother of twelve, at the age of sixty, Beatrice Auerbach began a series of trips which took her to all parts of the world.  Personal diaries and correspondence and the recollections of friends, family and associates open a window on the life of Beatrice Fox Auerbach who, when asked for interviews often responded, "Don't write about me as a business woman; call me a woman in business." 

The meeting will be held at the University of Hartford .                                    Submitted by  CECILIA WELNA
