Subject: Mrs. Burnham and Her Daughter

Having read all the interesting class notes posted to date, I wanted to share with you a story about Mrs. Burnham and her daughter.

Some of you may recall being invited, on occasion, after school to her home on East Main St. Not sure what the reason was (does anyone else remember?), but it seemed good to talk with a teacher on a different level outside the school room setting. And do you remember her younger daughter? She was always hanging around on the kitchen stools. We tolerated her since she was Mrs. Burnham's kid!

Fast forward 28 years to 1990. My wife and I brought our son Doug to Bucknell for Freshman orientation. The final Parents Meeting was lead by the Dean of Students. The name was Professor Burnham. A little bell went off but I was sure it had no relation to our former math teacher.

To my surprise, out walked someone who looked exactly like Mrs. Burnham. With her dark hair up on her head, her daughter was the spitting image of her mother. After the meeting, I went up and introduced myself to her. She recalled those casual afternoon meetings with the 'upper classmen' from her mom's math classes. And being a good parent, I quickly found our son so he could meet her as well. During his years at Bucknell, she was always very helpful to him. In hind sight, I was very glad we tolerated her!
