Carol T. (Durso) Sarokhan ’73

I am a member of the class of 1973, and I had the pleasure of taking Vertebrate Zoology with Professor Horner in 1971 or 1972. She was an amazing person: a citizen of the world. She loved to tell us about her travels gathering specimens, including the story of the flying fish in the South Pacific jumping right into her boat. She would lovingly handle some of her prized creatures and exclaim, "Isn't it beautiful?" She especially liked to show off her sturgeon. Her enthusiasm was contagious, even as we struggled through a difficult dissection of our turtles or minks (minus the fur). With her passing, Smith College and the Biology Department have lost a legend.
