of Otelia Cromwell Captured in Niece's Book
An illustration of Otelia
Cromwell, Class of 1900, looking after Adelaide Cromwell
’40, adorns the cover of My Mothering Aunt.
Cromwell ’40 will always
remember her beloved aunt as Aunt Tee, the pet name she had
for her since childhood. Adelaide, now 90, recalls her
favorite of four aunts, Otelia Cromwell, as a mother figure
in a book published this year by Smith College.
Aunt: Otelia Cromwell is a remembrance of the lifelong relationship
between Adelaide and Otelia Cromwell, class of 1900, the
first African-American graduate of the college.
