Before they were icons
In early 1989, Anne Garside took what would be a fateful
trip to New York City. Her destination was the Greenwich
Village apartment of Max G. Lowenherz, the then 80-year-old
founder of the Three Lions Picture Agency. Lowenherz had
made it known that he wished to make a gift to the institute
in memory of Irving Lowens, a friend who had been dean of
the Peabody Conservatory.
Garside, director of Peabody's Public
Information Office, accompanied Valerie Wilson, the
institute's director of development, on a visit to the
potential donor. What the two had come to see was a
scrapbook of original photographs, most of which had never
been seen before.
A&S starts Sept. 11
The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks turned life's most routine
activities upside down, and Richard McCarty's weekly staff
meeting was no exception.
As the dean of the Krieger School of Arts
and Sciences met with his colleagues days after the attack,
no one's mind was on business-as-usual. While coping with
their own fears, McCarty says, the group members were
feeling frustrated, wondering how to honor the thousands who
died, including five Arts and Sciences alumni.
