Keystone College inducts Edith Brundage Society

Keystone College President Dr. Edward G. Boehm Jr. recently inducted inaugural members of newly created Edith Brundage Society. The Society, named in honor of Edith Brundage, the first graduate of Keystone Academy in 1872, honors six women involved with planning and implementing The Gathering, Keystone’s highly acclaimed literary conference.

An annual summer event for the last five years, The Gathering has hosted some of the world’s most acclaimed writers and poets. In addition to being the first Keystone Academy graduate, Edith Brundage was a renowned local writer responsible for the creation of La Plume Twp., home of Keystone College.

“Edith Brundage once dreamed of creating a place where writers and lovers of literature could gather and discuss their work. Thanks to the tremendous efforts of these initial inductees, her dream has come true and The Gathering is recognized as one of the finest literary conferences in America,” President Boehm said.

Members of the inaugural Edith Brundage Society are, from left: Charlotte Ravaioli, Mary Belin Rhodes, Jane Oppenheim, Suzanne Fisher Staples ’65, Susan Belin and Susan Scranton Dawson.
