Honoring Jean Bennett (deceased)

Submitted by Dr. Susan N. Houde-Walter

Jean Bennett was the first woman to be elected OSA President. I was a graduate student at the time, and she visited with students at U. Rochester and encouraged us to get involved with OSA. We did. It has been great. She was a serious scientist and a kind person, one of those quiet but determined pioneers that shape organizations. We were fortunate to have her in OSA.
