The Stories in the Stones at MacLeish Field Station ‘About a First-Year’ Episode 5: Halfway There Is This Alumna the Mother of Modern Nutrition?
Geosciences professor John Brady has made a life’s work of deciphering the stories that rocks have to tell about the world. Watch as he shares the fascinating story of the Connecticut River Valley, as illustrated by the rocks at Smith's MacLeish Field Station. The video series “About a First-Year” follows three first-year Smith students. In episode five, Aditi, Gwen and Adrianna are halfway through their first year at Smith. Each starts the spring semester with something a little different on her mind.   Helen Woodard Atwater 1897 was a pioneer in nutrition, conducting innovative research on natural sweeteners and helping to shape federal nutrition policy. So why isn't she better known?

Twenty-some years ago, when Linda McCuen survived a massive stroke that left her in a wheelchair, her daughter compiled a bucket list for her. At the top of that list was meeting Gloria Steinem ’56. McCuen, who lives in Peabody, Mass., happily crossed that off her list when Steinem was on campus last week.
