From the New York Times, Oct. 28, 2018
Margaretta K. Mitchell and Seymour Warkov are to be married Oct. 28. Judge Tara M. Flanagan of the Alameda County Superior Court is to officiate at the bride’s home in Berkeley, Calif.
The bride, a photographer, and the groom, a poet, met in 1998 through a college classmate of Ms. Mitchell, who had met Mr. Warkov through yet another friend, on Block Island, in Rhode Island. A connection was suggested, and Mr. Warkov called Ms. Mitchell after he had returned to California, and asked her to lunch. The couple has since collaborated, and together produced a book of photography and poetry, “Island Dreams” (Elysian Editions, 2017).
Ms. Mitchell, 83, is the author of “Recollections: Ten Women of Photography” (Viking, 1979), ”The Face of Poetry” (University of California, Berkeley Press, 2005) and other volumes of her work. Her photographs are in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the International Center of Photography and other museums. She graduated from Smith College and received a master’s degree in visual studies from the University of California, Berkeley.
She is the daughter of late Margaretta Rice Kuhlthau and the late Conrad W. Kuhlthau, who lived in New Brunswick, N.J.
Mr. Warkov, 88, is known as Sim. He is the author of “Thin Soils: Poems” (Ice-Blue Press, 2009) and “Reaching” (Ice-Blue Press, 2006) and other books of poetry. He retired as a sociology professor at the University of Connecticut in Storrs. He graduated from the New School for Social Research and received a doctoral degree in sociology from Yale.
He is a son of the late Rose Warkov and the late Mendel Warkov, who lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The bride was a widow and the groom was a widower.

Oct 2014 the new conservative members of the county school board (in Colorado) tried to change the AP US History curriculum away from the College Board recommendations, to promote US “patriotism” and “respect for authority” and discourage “civil disorder”. Naturally the students and everyone else made big civil disorder in response. Here’s me at the protest (see attached photo). Yes, that’s my yellow scarf from our reunion.
Also attached is a photo from fall 1953 of me (center) and Randi Singsaas Ryan (right) protesting a new parking lot in front of Lawrence House. Plus que ça change….

I just published, in February, my 18th book, a novel called LOCAL CUSTOMS, set in Britain and West Africa in 1836-38 and based on four real people. Although it has had excellent reviews, I’ve had no interest from the U.S. or U.K. It can be purchased through Amazon.ca.
I am not always a writer of historical fiction, but history does interest me, especially the history of women.
Trip to the Galapagos
Kate Neiley Begien
Several years ago Sandy Butler Gardner ’58,( Northrop House and an old and close friend), and I formed Care to the Caregivers, a telephone program, based at Trinity Church, Boston. As the title suggests, we call those individuals in a caregiving capacity, and where prayers have been requested, as many times as we determine will be supportive and helpful as they may feel overwhelmed and discouraged. We are, of course, advised by clergy. Trinity is now available worldwide online, and the requests for prayers from Trinity are culturally varied and of an equal diversity, so discernment is essential. We are constantly amazed that for so little we receive so much in return, a lovely way to be of some small service.
