Remembering Fay Halpern Lande ’59

It was sad to read that Fay Halpern Lande ’59 has died. My main memory of Fay is that she introduced me to the concept of not wearing leather. I was 17 when I first knew her, and from a politically radical but otherwise quite ordinary family. I had heard of vegetarians, but never of someone so dedicated that she didn’t even wear leather! It was one of the ideas that began to open my mind so it could grow. I’m sure Fay never had any idea what she had done for me. I only knew her slightly and through other people.
