The Middle East Studies Association honored Arthur E. Goldschmidt Jr. '59 with its 2000 Mentoring Award. The citation recognizes the retired Pennsylvania State University professor for his "generous sharing of wisdom, advice and research assistance with students, colleagues and other scholars throughout the world," especially through his widely used textbook, A Concise History of the Middle East ; Carlene Price White '59 was featured in the Ipswich (Mass.) Chronicle last fall when she donated a Great Dane to Independence Dogs, a nonprofit organization that provides highly trained dogs to assist people with mobility impairments. White, who cares for 150 animals ranging from chickens and homing pigeons to donkeys and a llama at Animal Episodes, her farm in Ipswich, makes a practice of donating animals to worthy causes.
