Mary Moser (1950-1996)

Mary Moser (1950-1996) was a remarkable scholar and teacher of Classical Studies and Archaeology tragically lost to her family, her colleagues and her college in the middle of a fine career as teacher and scholar. She was an outstanding graduate of Dickinson, majoring in Latin, winning the Mervin Grant Filler Memorial Prize in classical languages, and being named Outstanding Senior Woman. She worked as Assistant Director of Admissions at Dickinson and administrator of the American Research Institute in Turkey. She went on to graduate school in Classical Archaeology at the University of Pennsylvania and was awarded her PhD in 1982. She returned to Dickinson in 1982 as an assistant professor teaching Latin, Greek, and Archaeology. For 14 years, she was an outstanding teacher both on campus and in study-travel endeavors in Italy and Britain, winning along the way the Ganoe Award for Inspirational Teaching and the Dickinson Award for Distinguished Teaching. On June 27, 1996, Mary Moser died in Carlisle following a long and valiant battle against cancer.
