In Memory of Two Friends

Swarthmore lost two beloved members of its community this summer:

Eva Foldes Travers, professor emerita of educational studies, died July 13 on Cape Cod. Remembered for her gracious spirit, as well as for her support of students, teachers, and teacher-preparation programs, she is survived by husband Jeff Travers; children Emily Travers Carroll (Mark) and Nick Travers; grandchildren Jackson and Gabriella; and sisters Judith Dickson and Barbara Wolkowicz.

Dwight Darkow, a College gardener, died Aug. 9 in Philadelphia. Darkow, who dedicated more than 20 years to the College, had a passion for and commitment to beautifying the grounds in environmentally conscious
ways. He is survived by his parents, Dwain and Dorothea Darkow; his wife of 35 years, Nancy; and his children, Rachael and Dan.
