The Fellowship has been under development for about a year in secret. On Sunday, September 7, a surprise party was held in Lydie’s own apartment hosted by her sons, Nick and Greg. At the party, Chair of the Board of Trustees, Sidnie White Crawford presented Lydie with the Fellowship, endowed in her honor at the Albright Institute with contributions from family, Albright Trustees, and friends all over the globe. To say that Lydie was surprised would be an understatement; she told Sidnie, “I can’t stop shaking!” And when invited to make a speech, she was at an absolute loss for words.

From all of us at the Albright, thanks for your exemplary service over the years, Lydie.
