On The Cusp - The Women of Penn ’64

Special Interest Speaker Series

On the Cusp - The Women of Penn '64 focuses on the lives of 19 remarkable visionary women of this Penn class who chose career paths in chemical engineering, architecture, law, computer programming, medicine and others—careers not typical for women in the 1960s and what they accomplished for themselves and women everywhere.

This story of these 1964 classmates is a different type of narrative—their influences on their lives and the lives of others.  Hear individually and collectively, how they broke down barriers and the many challenges they faced. Many of the women classmates profiled in the book will attend, including 1964 co-class president Sandra Lotz Fisher, Penn Club founding board member Claire Israel Gordon as well as Judy Roth Berkowitz, Leslie Gallery-Dilworth, Ilene Leff, Rona Solomon Cohen, Faye Laing M.D., among others.

Anne Sceia Klein received a B.S. degree in Economics in 1964 from Penn’s Wharton School and received her master’s degree in 1965 from Penn’s Annenberg School for Communication. She served on her 50th undergraduate class reunion committee and chaired her graduate school’s 50th reunion.
