Reliving the Past is the title of an article that has just been published in UCLA's Daily Bruin (March , 2013). Here is its online version for you:

The Project started back in November 2012 when current FWC President Zorana Ercegovac met with Jillian Beck of the Daily Bruin to propose a possibility to write a story about the Faculty Women's Club. Jillian was excited about our many varied and interesting programs and activities that the Club offers; that was the beginning of this collaborative project.

I want to thank so many of our members who enthusiastically participated in the project in many different ways. In particular, I want to thank Marjorie Friedlander, Pat Hardwick, Glorya Dixon, Sonny Harris, Joanne Knopoff, and Joy Frank who were interviewed by Daily Bruin reporters for the story. The Oral History Project, as described in the Daily Bruin, is one among many new initiatives that we have started to address and embrace during my presidency, 2012-2013. It aims to collect, record, and preserve personal experiences from the FWC members who have been active with various programs and activities since the 1960s -- at the time when they were particularly active. Listen to the stories that are shared by Marjorie and Pat in the video clips that are included in the Daily Bruin story.
